"Net Service Configuration" ?

  johnem 15:04 30 Dec 03

Hi gang, back for some more help. I have just taken the plunge and upgraded from ME to XP Pro. Not a full clean install, just an upgrade!! Gradually starting to sort out drivers etc however, whenever I log on, I receive anotice on the screen as follows, "Net Service Configuration", "The specified service does not exist as an installed service." As soon as I click OK, an icon appears in the task bar area which when I hover the mouse states "Unknown -\\John - MSSQL Server.
If I right click on this Icon it show a control box, if I select Start, then a display appears "An ERROR 1060 - (The specified service does not exist as an installed service.) occured while performing this service operation in the MSSQL Server service.
Could someone kindly translate this and hopefully advise how to neutralise this Icon.
I seem to remember that this Icon appeared some time ago whilst I was running ME.

You must have installed SQL Server under ME, if its still there in add/remove progs and you dont need it, remove it.

Spikeychris, thanks for the info. Managed to "uninstall" MSSQL programme. It was about 60meg in size. Puter seems to be functioning OK without it.
