I'm new to SQL EXPRESS. I had it set up a month or 2 ago working fine, but now it won't work. I'm guessing it's a permissions thing b/c I get a lot of those errors in general. I also recently upgraded to XP SP3.  But I cannot figure out how to get the sql express server to start. My error log is below.  Googling for an answer either doesn't answer it or blows my mind with stuff I don't understand.

Since I'm just getting started (although I do have one db set up), I'm open to all kinds of suggestions of how to set this up CORRECTLY and EASILY.

I switched it from Network Service to Local System, and this time it worked (although I tried that before and it didn't).  Does anyone know what the proper settings are for all the things I need related to running .NET and sql express services on my local laptop, e.g. (attached)

Well local is correct if running just on your machine.

There is a pretty good set up and configuration guide on Microsoft site - have you read it ? Also in Books - online - suggest you gat that (should have installed)...
