at least one service or driver failed.... no error in event viewer

at least one service or driver failed.... no error in event viewer

at least one service or driver failed.... no error in event viewer

When I boot my windows 2003 Standard Terminal Server I get the popup message
 saying "At least one service or drivers failed during system startup.." T
here are no errors in the event log, no problems in device manager, and no p
roblem in services.

Fixing the problem if there is one would be priority but if not I would be h
appy with just being able to disable the message from popping up.

Here is everything from the event viewer from when the server starts.

Event Type:    Information
Event ID:    6009

Microsoft (R) Windows (R) 5.02. 3790 Service Pack 1 Uniprocessor Free.

The Event log service was started.

The COM sub system is suppressing duplicate event log entries for a duration
 of 86400 seconds.  The suppression timeout can be controlled by a REG_DWORD
 value named SuppressDuplicateDuration under the following registry key: HKL

The Application Experience Lookup service started successfully.

Event Type:    Information
Event ID:    26

Application popup: Service Control Manager  : At least one service or driver
 failed during system startup.  Use Event Viewer to examine the event log fo
r details.

The IPSec Driver is starting in Bypass mode. No IPSec security is being appl
ied while this computer starts up. IPSec policies, if they have been assigne
d, will be applied to this computer after the IPSec services start.

Event Type:    Information
Event ID:    4294

The IPSec driver has entered Secure mode. IPSec policies, if they have been
configured, are now being applied to this computer.

Thanks for the help.

RE: at least one service or driver failed.... no error in event viewer

I see them all the time.  Bogus messages.  If it bothers you alter the timer put in a second or third request to start the service.
