Media Streaming will not turn on

Hi I am new to this forum and been having this problem for a while now. I am wanting to stream from my PC to my PS3 I have tried hundreds of times to turn on media streaming in network and sharing center but every time I press the turn on media streaming button the little circle will pop up as if it is going to turn on the button grey's out for a second or two and doesn't change it will not turn on no matter what I try.

I searched around a bit and seen a potential fix by going into computer management and trying to start the windows media player streaming service but whenever I try to start the service I get this message.

"The Windows Media Network Sharing Service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs"

I would appreciate any help with this issue. I have tried everything to get this to work and nothing has changed. It worked like a charm before I formatted my desktop a few months back and did a clean install of windows and now all of a sudden it won't work at all.
