1st Option

According to an MS Knowledge base article it appears that Error 1053's can be resolved by upgrading the .NET Framework 1.1 software to SP1.

2Nd option

Error code 1053 means the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. you can use Kernel software to remove this error code. few months ago i faced same issues. i go for Kernel software that really very useful in this case. you can find it at:

I tried to download .net framework1 sp1, but I was unable to download it.  It gave me an error "The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer Service because the program  to be upgraded may be missing, or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program.  Verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch."  I see .net framework 1.  The above suggestion for the error 1053 seems to be for a Exchange Server and to recover emails.  I am using Server 2003 and added the role of FAX Server.  Still unable to start the service due to the same error as described above.  Thanks...
