You have most likely been infected by a virus or spyware.

You will need to boot from a boot disk and then scan the system for viruses and spyware.

If you were messing with the registry, check the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Start and check the value. It's probably set to 4 which is disabled. Change it to 2 and then reboot the machine.
