    Good Day,

    A few days ago when coming onto the desktop I would not be able to use RUN or get into the Control Panel. This does not happen all of the time, and to temporary fix the problem one, or more reboots are needed. I checked in the Event Viewer and seen the error. I right-clicked and went to its properties. It states: "The SAVRTPEL service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified." I clicked on the for more information link and below is what it has to say. How to correct this situation as clearly as you can state. Thanks Much!

    COPY


    Details
    Product: Windows Operating System
    Event ID: 7000
    Source: Service Control Manager
    Version: 5.0
    Symbolic Name: EVENT_SERVICE_START_FAILED
    Message: The %1 service failed to start due to the following error:
    %2.

    Explanation
    Service Control Manager (SCM) could not start the specified service, probably because the service is not configured correctly.


    User Action
    Do one or all of the following:

    Review the error information displayed in the message.
    Verify that the service password has not expired.
    Verify that the service is in the correct location.
    Verify that the service is not infected with a virus.
    To display the WIN32_EXIT_CODE error that SCM encountered when trying to start the program, at the command prompt, type
    sc query service name
    The information displayed can help you troubleshoot possible causes for the error.
    If the WIN32_EXIT_CODE is zero, then SCM did not attempt to start the service because the error was detected first.

    Windows XP
    Right-click the "Start" button, and then click "Properties".

    On the "Start Menu" tab, click "Classic Start menu", and then click "Customize". This changes the style of the Start menu.

    Click "Remove".

    Open the "Programs" folder and then open the "Startup" folder.

    Highlight the items in the "Startup" folder that you want to remove and click the "Remove" button.

    Click the "Close" button.

    Click the "OK" button twice.
