The Windows Event Log service runs as NT AUTHORITY\LocalService in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Windows Event Log fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows 7 startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the eventlog service has failed to start.
If the Windows Event Log is stopped, the following services will not start and initialize:

svchost.exe file exists in the
