The system cannot find the file specified." - This event may occur when a service was not uninstalled properly (not removed from the service database). The Service Control Manager is trying to start the service but the executable is not there. Remove the entries for the service from the registry. This may also occur if one of the dependent files are missing or are the for the wrong OS version. "The system cannot find the file specified" :

This error code may indicate one of the following:
- a required file does not exist
- a file that a certain application depend on does not exist (i.e. an application may need appfile.dll library but this library requires app2file.dll which it cannot find)
- the user may not have enough file permisssions to access a specific file or its location or the file may be on the network and the user does not have the right to access resources over the network (typically happening for the SYSTEM account)
- the file may the wrong version (or for the wrong operating system)
- the file may be corrupted ar locked by another application

From a newsgroup post:

"I suggest that you use control panel, network, to remove and re-add the TCP/IP
protocol.  This way, If your problem is purely a lost file, it will get fixed.
BEFORE you remove TCP/IP, record all it's properties!"
