    I've been experiencing on-going crashes and I go to Event Viewer and it shows
    me that the following services failed to load or error messages came about:
    PSINKNC; PLFLASHJ DEVICE CONTROL SERVICE; NANO SERVICE MAIN; AVGIDS WATCHER;
    AKAMAI SERVICE; ADFS SERVICE;P ZUNE BUS ENUMERATOR; AVGIDS AGENT; AVGIDS
    DRIVER; AVGIDS FILTER; AVGIDS SHIM; PSINPROC SERVICE; PSINFILE; PSINAFLT.
    Apologies for writing in caps but I wanted to ensure these things stand out.
    Any advice on how to deal with this will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in
    advance.

    P.S.
    Will Repair Console remedy these problems?

    remove and reinstall AVG antivirus software, it appears some of it's
    components maybe either be missing or corrupt. this will resolve some of what
    is going on. and the answer to your question is no, repair console will not
    repair these items.

    OK I'll do the AVG install and re-install but what about those others
    services? Were they affected by the corrupt AVG remnants?

    You need to re-install XP from scratch. there is no Solution for this
    problem and the only replies you will get are like this:

    " What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than
    Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you
    bought it)? "

    I managed to get rid of the AVG remnants, but the other services are still
    messing around with my system files in Event Viewer. Now what? Thank you for
    helping me with the first part of this exercise.

    What anti-virus application was installed before you installed AVG?

    Was the subscription still current when you uninstalled it before installing
    AVG?

    Google (or whatever search engine you prefer) each of the offending
    services, and you'll find out what they are. For example, PSINKNC is part of
    Panda Cloud Antivirus, so you'd be better off uninstalling it and
    reinstalling. Same with the rest. Some may require updates or patches from
    the manufacturer.
    You might want to try installing another anti-malware product and running
    it, such as
    MalwareBytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
    and SuperAntiSpyware http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html to see if
    you have some sort of infection. Is this a recent problem? Have you
    installed some new software or hardware that may have caused it? If not, my
    hunch is malware of some sort.

    I am hoping to avoid the grief of re-installing the OS all over again. I am
    currently running Avira as my antivirus which is FREE when running on an
    individual level. Please help, otherwise if that is the end game to this
    problem well, I'll need to save my files/data etc

    P.S.
    Will uninstalling SP3 and re-installing it again remedy this problem?

    I figured googling each and everyone of these things may be the way it goes.
    OK uninstalling SP3 will not necessarily do the trick then right?

    No, the service failures are 3rd-party and undoing and re-installing the
    Service Pack wouldn't address those failures.

    Many services have dependency services. For one to start successfully
    it requires that other services are started before it. Resolving service
    starts can be difficult. Have you made any manual changes to services
    that would account for the long list of failures ?

    uninstalling SP3 will NOT do the trick because as stated in another post,
    your problems are related to various anti-virus programs you installed! You
    have to uninstall the offending programs (BTW, sometimes you have to
    REinstall, THEN UNinstall the offending program).

    One last tip, try doing a 'clean boot' to come to a more stable system. This
    may or may not work as anti-virus programs can get pretty 'deep' into the OS
    .... do this:
    START, RUN, MSCONFIG <enter>, select 'Diagnostic Startup', OK, reboot

    See if that stabilizes the system and helps as you work to remove the
    offending software

    it would be my firm guess
    that when you first installed
    windows it was highly stabled.

    therefore, I would test the issue
    of crashes by booting into
    safe mode and see if windows
    is stable.

    if so, then I would initiate a
    clean boot to disable all
    startups and third party
    services so that normal
    mode can become stable.

    afterwards you can determine
    which third party services and
    startups should remain disabled.

    OK I am about to do the diagnostic startup and hope for the best.
    I'll repost once I see the offending services have been put in check.
    Thanks guys!

    The following keys continue to make a nuisance of themselves and I am
    thinking to go brute force, go into the registry and delete them.
    Unless you think there's a kinder-gentler way ;-)

    Mea Culpa, forgot the bloody keys, they are:

    PLFlash DeviceIoControl Service

    NanoServiceMain

    The Akamai service terminated with the following error:
    The system cannot find the file specified.

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

    The Zune Bus Enumerator Driver service failed to start due to the following
    error:
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    updates for it. If you have and use the Zune, try reinstalling the
    application software and updates again.

    First I would get rid of AVIRA completely. It is dodgy and you get pop
    ups every time it updates to FORCE you to buy their professional
    version. It is slow and it is GERMAN. We british try to avoid GERMAN
    products in the same way as we avoid them in major tournaments like
    Football/Soccer.

    Sadly I have to advise you that you should backup your data immediately
    because there is simply no way out of this. your system has become very
    unstable. Please download or buy Norton Ghost 15 because in my opinion
    it is the best software in the market place to backup your data.

    Also, Norton Ghost will enable you to clone/backup your entire drive
    when you have re-installed XP SP3 so that in future you should be able
    to restore your system much more quickly then going through the routine
    install option.

    I wouldn't. It's one of the best antivirus programs available.

    It is not dodgy.

    1. No one is ever forced to do anything.

    2. Avira is entitled to entice users of their free progam to upgrade to
    the "professional" program. These popups are no more than a minor
    convenience. Furthermore, one does not get popups if they disable them,
    and the method to disable them is straightforward and simple.
