In the SQL Server Service Manager  I keep getting this error message. "The service did not start due to a logon failure."
Then I click OK, and I get this message
"Error 1069- (The service did not start due to a logon failure.)occurred while performing this service operation on the MSSQL Server service.

I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling SQL, and I still get the same messages.

I am using SQL 2000 DEveloper's Edition. Please respond ASAP how I get out of this problem.
Thank You very much.

In Enterprise Manager, right-click your server, go to Properties.

Click the Security tab

At the bottom, for Service Startup account, reset the account and password information.

To use a domain account, it's: DOMAIN\UserName

You can also try and change this in the Windows Services window if you cannot access SQL:

Right-click My Computer go to Manage
Expand Services and Applications
Click Services
Double click MSSQLServer
Click the Log On tab
Change to Local System Account (do not allow to interact with desktop)
Press OK and exit.
Stop and restart the service.
Then do the steps outlined first for setting the security information in Enterprise Manager.
You should not set the security credentials via the Services window.

After I did exactly as you advised me to avoid the error message, I tried connecting my VB project to the SQL database. I went to the "Link.udl Properties" and under the tab "Provider" I usually had in the list one line as follows: "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Sql Server". Now that line is missing.
How can I bring it back?
Thanks you very much.
