    Event Viewer error - whenever I click "View event Logs" under Administrative
    tools I receive the following error:

    Event Log Service is unavailable. Verify that the service is running.

    I then go to Services and select and retstart Diagnostic Policy Service and
    receive the following error:

    "Windows could not start the Diagnostic Policy Service service on Local
    Error 1079: The account specified for this service is different from the
    account specified for other services running in the same process."

    I then tried starting Windows Event Log and received this error:

    "Windows could not start the Windows Event Log Service on Local Computer.
    Error 4201: The instance name passed was not recognized a valid WMI by data

    I also tried starting the task scheduler service and received this error:
    "Task Scheduler Service is not available. Task Scheduler will attempt to
    reconnect to it."

    The error pops up several times then the Task scheduler window says
    "reading data failed"

    Another error, after installing the Latest Windows update Many of my
    shortcuts and desktop icons are missing. All of the Office 2007 icons are
    missing and So is iTunes and other programs. I have retored it previously
    when I had the same issue yesterday and thought I had installed something the
    messed up the computer. the only thing that was the same was the windows
    vista update that caused the same issue.

    please help any assistance you can offer will help this headache go away. I
    was very leery of even buying a computer with vista because of the "issues" I
    heard about i only bought my computer 3 months ago and now I'm having all
    these issues aand i am not that happy!

    I get the same error, i.e. Error 1079, when attempting to start the
    Diagnostic Policy Service. I hope that someone replies.
