Service not found?


B

Beemer Biker

After I log in (following any reboot) I get the message "service not found".
There is no other infomation. I went to the event viewer and I see no error
messsage for windows logs: application, system, security, etc. Just a bunch
of "info" message.

So how can I determine what the service is that it is attempting to run?

I uninstalled McAfee as 1gb of memory was not sufficient.
I uninstalled VNCserver as it can only run in user mode.

I recently installed VPN (centerpoint vista release) and also DLink vista
driver for pcmcia card (i have pcmcia desktop adapter).

It is probably one of those two I uninstalled I would guess.

Normally (XP Pro) the event log will have a message corresponding to the
popup error message. If so, it is buried in the "info" messages and there
are too many to look thru.


...thanks in advance..

BTW the system works fine, I just have no idea what the service is that cant
be found.

You can check the startup folder and msconfig for startup programs or
services no longer on your computer. You can also check services.msc for a
service set to auto start for a program that no longer exists. Another
option might be to use the McAfee uninstaller available on their website to
remove any possible program leftovers.

Have you checked the system log?
