The error of start of service, because the file missed, launching this service. I have opened a console 'service', have sorted by 'auto', have found service which isn't launched. It was 'abel' (cain and abel) service. I have disable it, have restarted the server, error have disappeared. Then I have deleted this service from registry a command-line "sc delete abel". Obviously, the service may be a different one in your case.
Resolve other related events that appear in the System log. See “EventID 1000 from source Application Error” and “EventID 1004 from source Application Error”.
This issue may occur if the Spooler service tries to start before the Server service. This happens if you installed either the Lexmark International Markvision (LexBce) service or the Hewlett-Packard JetAdmin port monitoring software on your computer. See ME319127 to solve this problem.
Active Directory requires the Kerberos Key Distribution Center service for authentication. This problem may occur if the Kerberos Key Distribution Center service is disabled. See ME316710 for more details.
This is a generic message used by the Service Control Manager (the process that handles all the services) to indicate that a service that was configure to be started automatically at boot could not be started. There could be many reasons for this and it could virtually happen to any service. This event merely indicates that the service did not start and it does not provide any information as why did that happen.
Below are some instances when such issues occur but the cover just a small fraction of what can be encountered in the real world.
