Error Message: "Service program is not active"

Upon rebooting or opening Windows (XP Pro), I get a dialog entitled Error.
It states: “Service program is not active.†I tried to use System Restore to
get back to the configuration before the problem developed. That apparently
was one of the ‘services’ that is inactive, it didn’t work. I think the
problem was caused by upgrading to Windows Media Player v. 10 which I have
since removed.

I have tried to ‘repair’ Windows in Add and Remove Programs but it didn’t
correct the problem. System Restore is working again, I think, at least it
is showing restore points available. My system may be fully OK, but with the
dialog reappearing all the time, I have no way of knowing. There aren’t any
problems I notice except the machine seems slow as does rebooting.
