If it was a (to MS) critical FS that ran full, it might've been set to
"Read Only", so you'd need clear that... a reboot/fsck should cure
anything with that. And some daemons might've died horrible little
deaths too (also cured by a reboot, of course:).
Also... If you use MailWatch, check the maillog table... and of
course, check that any AV update has run to completion... Yeah, (bad)
experience talking here:-)
