Default HELP!! EventLog service is missing!!

HI,

When i go to control panel / Administrative options / Services

and check the services i dont find the eventlog service listed at all!

i need this service in order to install diskeeper 10

I have checked WINDOWS/System32 and have found eventlog.dll listed, i also checked HKEY_LOCALMACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services and apparently event log is listed,

when i go to cmd, net start eventlog it says the service is not installled
i also tried cmd regsvr32 eventlog.dll to register the dll but i get that the entry point was not found error message
i have no idea why eventlog is missing from the services list


Any idea on how to install this service again?

Thank you

Default what is an alternative method?

I need an other method, since my windows xp cd is older than the version installed (SP2). Plus i dont want any unecessary risks.

What would be a manual fix to the problem?

Default tried the repair install with no success

I tried the repair install suggested above, but without success, the option is not available when i follow the steps listed in the guide above. I do not want to risk my pc any further lol

So thats not a viable alternative, any other suggestions? thx

it doesnt matter, the point is that eventlog should be there, you can get there by> ControlPanel / Administrative Options / Services
