Windows Service - Infrared Monitor start failure

Hi,
I want to connect my cell-phone to my Computer via infrared connection.
After many unsccuessful attempt, I narrowed it down the problem to the failure to start a windows service called "Infrared Monitor".
I checked the Event Viewer, It displayed with the following message:

The Infrared Monitor service depends on the IrDA Protocol service which failed to start because of the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

The Help and Support Center at microsoft doesn't really help with my problem.

Thanks in advnace for helping.

Sunray, thanks for the link. I have read throught them, and they doesn't seem to resolve my situation here.

Perhaps I could clarify my situation here better.
WinXP correctly identify my infrared device in the DeviceManager, shown as "Infrared Devices = > SigmaTel USB-IrDA dongle #2"

The problem is with establishing a connection with my cell phone... Normally, when 2 infrared transceivers are put together, there should be an icon appeared on the taskbar, but this time. I don't have the icon appear. Which i suspect is caused by the failure of starting windows service - infrared monitor.
