The Server service runs as LocalSystem in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Server 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 LanmanServer service has failed to start.
If the Server is stopped, the Computer Browser fails to start and initialize.
