Do you see any errors in the Windows Event Viewer regarding this service?

There must be a reason why it stops, an error ... So please check the Event Logs of Windows as well as the log of vCenter Service itself which you should be able to find here:
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Logs\vpxd.log

Post the errors here please.

Are you out of storage space ?

Is the database larger than 4GB or 10G depending upon version of SQL Express ?

You will need to remove the objects form the Inventory, and Re-Add the VMs to the Inventory. (Right Click the VMX file in the datastore, and select Register with Inventory)

Found a similar post on the EE, might help you if the event logs are related to SQL dbs.

and read the below too, if you have upgraded to VMware vCenter Server 5.5 (2065630).

Checked from the event viewer, it is the sql storage problem, is there any way to decrease the SQL size ?

These steps for what, are you using SQL Express ?

what version of vSphere 5.1 or 5.5, is your SQL database larger than 4GB or 10GB ?

If you are asking how to remove from the inventory, as above. Right Click....etc
