I have problems with starting the Event Log service in Win XP - SP3.
When I try to start the service (which is set to automatic startup),
[SC] StartService FAILED 1053:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Along with this service I have the "Task sheduler" who can not run either.
I tried running the command from a prompt C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceNetworkRestricted , but this is not giving any output...
There are no dependencies for this service...

How can I trouble shoot the cause of this problem?
