Which operating system?
What other reason did you have to reboot?
If you had applied some Microsoft updates then most probably these
have tightened security so the errors appear.

Since you installed 2.0.58d as a replacement for then
there are a lot of differences to handle.
One of them deal with the locking system, the old CVSNT used files for
locking and this may cause permission problems. The new CVSNT uses
"lockserver", but that hs to be activated in the repository
configuration (CVSROOT/config file).

And you have to check your setup concerning the repositories using the
CVSNT Control Panel configurator (green fish on Control Panel).
