Squid/Mandrake 9.0

I'm having problems with Squid in Mandrake 9.0.
When I '/etc/init.d/squid status' I get the message 'squid dead but subsys locked' and, on the line below, 'squid: ERROR: No running copy.
I stop squid and get the expected 'failed' and then restart it. That seems fine but a couple of seconds later I'm back to the 'subsys locked' thing. The same thing happens if I try 'service squid start'. I can't find a file anywhere on the system. Any ideas please?

Question squid dead but subsys locked - squid: ERROR: No running copy

My Squid proxy server is not working. Was there ever any solution provided for this problem?

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/squid restart
Stopping squid: [FAILED]
Starting squid: [ OK ]
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/squid status
squid dead but subsys locked
squid: ERROR: No running copy

I have tried several things from advice on messageboards and FAQs including:

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/squid stop
# rm /var/lock/subsys/squid
# /etc/rc.d/init.d/squid start

...didn't work.

# ps -A

...did not display squid as a running process.

Help. Anyone... please...

I had this problem, and the error was that my computer name contains invalid character like _*"+, try to change it and reboot your computer.
