All services that are dependent of "COM+ Event System" try to start "COM+ Event System" service and that fails! Only "COM+ Event System" is the problem so far

Reason: log files are probably full.

Solution:
  • right click on “My Computer”
  • choose Manage
  • Event log->windows events->right click on Application log (also security, system, setup but do that later)
  • choose Properties
  • change maximum log size to bigger value
  • check “Overwrite events when needed”
Already done that? Start COM+ Event System service afterwards. Maybe a reboot is needed(?)
