After recently leaving my computer to log in and returning later i have found that sometimes is has restarted, frozen or logged itself out.
When checking the systems event viewer under system a red error describes the situation from the Service Control Manager as below:

Event ID: 7000
The ##Id_String1.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762# # service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

When I click the link to find help in the help and support center it says:
Details
Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 7000
Source: Service Control Manager
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: EVENT_SERVICE_START_FAILED
Message: The %1 service failed to start due to the following error:
%2

Explanation
Service Control Manager (SCM) could not start the specified service, probably because the service is not configured correctly.


User Action
Do one or all of the following:

Review the error information displayed in the message.
Verify that the service password has not expired.
Verify that the service is in the correct location.
Verify that the service is not infected with a virus.
To display the WIN32_EXIT_CODE error that SCM encountered when trying to start the program, at the command prompt, type
sc query service name
The information displayed can help you troubleshoot possible causes for the error.

If the WIN32_EXIT_CODE is zero, then SCM did not attempt to start the service because the error was detected first.

I have ESET Smart Security, Windows XP SP3 and have run full system scans, along with Spybot and Ad-Aware 2008 but nothing has come up.
I've also checked for registry inconsistencies and had nothing and checked in services, while once again nothing has come up.

So any ideas?
Thank you


EDIT
Found out it was the mDNSResponder.exe service from apple.
Removed from start up.
Should be okay I hope
