    On startup, I get the ERROR MESSAGE: "Database/SQL Service Failed. Please reinstall the main application."
    My operating system is WINDOWS 7 PROFESSIONAL. My computer is the HP TouchSmart 300.
    How do I fix this ??

    The SQL Service could be used by any number of applications, it's tough to know where to start without more information. If you could post a screen shot of the exact error message, preferably with at least your task bar also visible in the shot, that might help. A screen shot of the entire program list from "Add or Remove Programs", in the Control Panel would also help pinpoint which program might be using the SQL Service. Also, have you recently installed or uninstalled any software or Windows Updates?
