Problem : Event ID 140 “Report Server Windows Service (MYSQLSERVER)”

Problem : Event ID 140 “Report Server Windows Service (MYSQLSERVER)”

On my 2003 Server I am getting this event ID every time I reboot. I am not able to find much information about it on google. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

Here is the description from the event viewer:

You could add a dependancy onto the SQL Reporting service of the SQL Server Service.  Instruction on how to add a dependancy here:
