windows service problem

i have a problem when i try to run my windows service ..which is "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion"

>after this i cannot anything with the service and have to restart the computer inorder for the service to be deleted.

>1) my service program is basically a client tht is listening on a port to a request from a server and establishing a new connection.

2) reading and extracting the zip file...deserializing the objects and parameters of the function in the zip file sent

3)invoking the method using the object sent...and sending back a zipped result archive....

the code for my service is as follows...

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.ServiceProcess;
using System.Text;
using System.IO;

using ServerApp;

using mytestservice.reference1;
using ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Zip;
namespace mytestservice
public partial class Service1 : ServiceBase

protected override void OnStart(string[] args)

ServerProgram ts = new ServerProgram();


protected override void OnStop()


the function registre and class ServerProgram are defined in a separate c#code file within the project which is......

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
