Insight Event Notifier Service won't start

Hello, I need to fire up the event notifier service on one of my servers. For some reason it was disabled so I enabled it and tried to start it. When I try to start it, I get the following error. "Windows could not start the hp insight event notifier on local computer. For more info, review the system event log."
If I check the system event log, I see the following error: "The HP Insight Event Notifier service terminated with service specific error 1 (0x1)." Could someone please shed some light on why this service won't start? Thank you.

Exactly same issue today. W2k8 Enterprise SP1.

Log Name: Application
Source: CimNotify
Date: 07/01/2009 18:29:36
Event ID: 1
Task Category: (1)
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
Description:
The description for Event ID 1 from source CimNotify cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

Made sure to re-install the latest Insdight Management Agents, but problem remains.

This just happened to me today.

Navigate to %systemroot%\system32\CIMntfy\
Right click on lwconfig.exe and run as Administrator.

Configure with a valid smtp server.

Hope this helps.
