    ORACLE Initialization or shutdown in progress

    407048
      I run an Oracle 10g database on windows 2000 OS.

      I have never had problems before starting the database and using it.

      Today, as usual, I started the database by going into Services and starting the OracleServiceORCL . Strange enough it gave me the STARTED status a little faster than it usually does. But when I tried to log in into SQL * PLUS, I am getting

      ERROR :
      ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress

      I am just not able to log into my database. I tried to stop and start oracle but no luck yet. The service says that oracle is started. I also see Oracle.exe running in my Task Manager

      Any ideas ?

      Thanks
