Error Messsages in the Event Viewer

I have the following Error Messages in the Event Viewer on my HP Z800 running Windows 7 Pro.

The regi service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

The TrackerCam Video Capture Driver 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.

The Disaster Recovery Imaging service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

What do the messages indicate and what needs to be done to fix them?

regi and Disaster Recovery Imaging seem to be uninstalled incompletely. If it are just services you can see in the service applet, disable them.
If you can locate the installation media for both, installing und uninstalling (again) might help cleaning up the stuff left over by now.

Can you give me some directions more in lay terms?

What are service applets?

What Is Disaster Recovery Imaging?

Disaster Recovery Imaging seems to be a software installed to make and restore "snapshots" of your PC's disks, in case of disk or OS software failure, or something along that line.

The Services Applet is what you find in Control Center for controlling your services.

Still speaking Greek.

Is Control Center the same thing as Control Panel? I do not see anything called Services Applet in Control Panel.

Disaster Imaging Recovery is a service, not software (see original error message). Can you provide some further guidance on just what that is?

Sorry, "Services" is located in "Administrative Tools", not "Control Panel".

Yes, Disaster Imaging Recovery is a service obviously. But it is still software ;-). It has to have been installed somehow some time ago. You or other software has then tried to uninstall or remove it, and that did not succeed to full extend. You could try to do the cleanup now, but it is easier to locate the failing services, and just set them to "disabled".
