a service or driver failed to start....

I have a client who notices a message on her server in the morning that says "a service or driver has failed to start..." This comes up when the server is reboot. Everything works fine, but the user is paranoid something is wrong.

When I go into the Event Manager, I get the following message:

The Network Load Balancing service failed to start due to the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

I know it's nothing serious and I've explained this to her, but how do I make this so go away so I can calm her down?
