Unanswered: "SQLServerAgent service hung on starting"
Since I installed sp4 for sql7 on 3 NT-machines last week, I get this message from Service Control Manager on every reboot of those PC's. After checking in the NT EventViewer, the SQLServerAgent service is really started but about 15-20 seconds after the error message.

"SQLServerAgent service hung on starting"
Thanks for your replies. Problem solved, the error message was caused because I also disabled the Messenger service (for security reasons). Now I enabled it again & the SQGAgent Service starts on reboot without the error warning. I still wonder why because I don't like leaving the Messenger service running.
