At least one service or driver failed to load....... Here is the Event Viewer Message:

The description for Event ID ( 116 ) in Source ( W3SVC ) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): /LM/W3SVC/.

This started after I tried to install the Microsoft Personal Web Server.
I am running NT4 with SP 6

I suspect that the W3SVC.DLL file could not be found.  This file usually is located in the "\WINNT\System32\inetsrc" directory.  It could also be an incorrect version.  Check the systems documentation (e.g. OS) and also the Personal Web Server documentation.  You might have to re-install the NT4 Options Pack and/or the NT Service Pack (SP6).

"\WINNT\system32\inetsrv"

why don't you try the iis4 instead of pws.

to do this, remove all the previous installation of pws and reinstall the iis4 form windows nt option pack (it's free from ms).

Normally this message is for Proxy Server. That means Proxy server release candidate version has expired
