Windows 7: Task Scheduler not running

Task Scheduler not running

I can't install anything on my computer or run disk defragger because I keep getting error messages. Here is one:

"Disk Deragmenter cannot start because the task scheduler service is not running. Start the task scheduler service and try again.

I tried to mess around with the task scheduler but I still don't understand the problem.

It wasn't started

I tried to start it and go this message:

"The Task Scheduler service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automtically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

Go back right click on task scheduler, properties. Find out dependancies and make sure they are on.
