The Extensible Authentication Protocol Service runs as localSystem in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Extensible Authentication Protocol Service fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows XP startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the EapHost service has failed to start.
Extensible Authentication Protocol Service will not start, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is stopped or disabled.
If the Extensible Authentication Protocol Service is stopped, the Wired AutoConfig fails to start and initialize.
