    Does anyone know how to remove some services that got left over after uninstalling a pci card? I removed my leadtek wintv 2000\xp by uninstalling all four devices from the device manager and removing its associated software, but the event viewer still shows errors where windows still wanted to start those devices even though they are removed.

    Yeah kinda figured that and hidden devices under device manager, but I can't seem to find exactly what file it is trying to run. Example would be WinFast TV2000 XP WDM TVTuner service like it specifies under the event log entry. Now what exact service name is associated with that, well that , who knows. While we are on the subject on services, do you know what Perfnet is? I keep getting an error where that is trying to open server service, which I have disabled.

    perfnet is related to performance counters, which i dont their function, but maybe this link has some explanation if any. anyways to overcome ur problem, one solution is to run Exctrlst.exe and disable performance counters.

    That was very helpful Franklin....I didn't find my actual problem, but did notice some nasty stuff left over from previous uninstalls.
