NT 4.0 - At the time the computer boots the Error "Unable to register service layer" comes up and when you click OK the computer continues to run with apparently no problems.  How can I get rid of this problem?

Have you checked the Event Log to see if there's a corresponding entry that might give more details?

You should check the EventLog and if the device causing the message is not necessary remove it. If you need the device (or service), remove it and re-install it. If it still doesn't work remove the device (or service) and clean registry from the device's part and re-install device (or service). Something like that might also happen if you have had some device a long ago and you have removed but you have forgotten to remove drivers for it.

Good Luck!

Sounds like good advice to me Mikko.  In fact we might have a similar problem on a server at work that keeps crashing/rebooting.  Then again, I think we may have multiple problems with that little bugger...  We'll find out more this weekend; I'm going to spend some quality time with it.  :-)
