SQL Service not istalled error

I installed MSDE via Visual Studio .Net, anything installed fine, but now I get the error when I load up the computer:
Net Service Configuration:The Specified Service does not exist as an installed service.

My computer name is Toby. The MSSQLServer Agent on the bottom right icon displays two *servers* Under Server
it displays Toby and Toby\VSDotNet.
The Toby Server is the one causing me the grief, it fails to start, and I get the above error when I try selecting it. When I select the server Toby\VSDotNet it has the green play button display, indicating the service started fine. How do I get rid of this message and/or remove the server Toby?

I had previously had problems installing Personal edition of SQL 2000 on my Windows XP computer.

Hi,

My guess is that you installed a named instance of MSDE.

The other question is did you change the sa password? We did that recently in house and the SQL agent couldn't start as it didn't know the new password.

To remove the message, in SQL Service Manager, remove the tick from the Auto-start service when OS starts or achieve the same thing from control panel | services

To remove the server toby check out Microsoft site for instructions on how to remove the default instance of SQL server ...

Regards
