When I boot up my xp pc the very last acion on bootup is a message box that states" Cannot Find Resource FIle".
I go to Event Viewer and there are two items there:

1)The COM+ Messages service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
2)The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
SMPLSCSI

Until recently 1 month ago, this message box never appeared. What is SMPLSCSI and how can I make this messagebox go away? D:(

try start run type sfc /scannow this checks all windows files and replaces them this fixes many many issues also make sure you fully update via microsoft site and your computer manufacturer

I ran that sfc /scannow and now , looking into Event Viewer, the error message about SMPLSCSI is gone, but the COM+ message is still there and is causing the "Cannot FInd Resource File" message at every bootup. Also I did updates with Microsoft, still get this message. Since the service is not running, can't I disable it? If so, how?
