service control manager, id - 7000, The network load balancing service

I am running 1 windows 2003 sbs.  Received the following critical error in my system's log.  Source - service control manager, id - 7000.   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.  

My question is as follows.  Do I even need Network load balancing if I only have one server?

Use Regedt32 to remove the following registry keys, if they exist:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\System\WLBS
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WLBS

or see http://network.mpei.ac.ru/lang/rus/faqw2kxp/jsifaq/rh7640.htm

I am one of those believers of the quote:  "If it's not broke, don't fix it."  I just want the following question answered:  Do I even need Network load balancing if I only have one server?

No - but a third party program may have installed it even if you did not see http://network.mpei.ac.ru/lang/rus/faqw2kxp/jsifaq/rh7640.htm

OK.  So, the network balancing service may be referenced in the startup of a 3rd-party service even
though according to http://network.mpei.ac.ru/lang/rus/faqw2kxp/jsifaq/rh7640.htm it's not installed.  In order to prevent the critical error from re-occuring, I should remove  the register entries referenced above.

How will I know if Network Load Balancing is installed?

It's not by default on an SBS.  But if it was, you'd see it listed in the Services Console.
