Windows 7: Windows File Sharing not working, Windows security center wont start

Windows File Sharing not working, Windows security center wont start


I have been using Windows File Sharing a while now on my home network. But now none of my other computers can connect. I have recently tried varies VPN service such as tunggle and Hamachi. (None of which worked, even with forwarded ports, not sure if its related)

Security Center service is not running. I have gone into services in management tried to start it, however it tells me "Error 1079: The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running the same process." So I go in to properties and change the user for the service from "Local Service" to "logon user".

But that gives me Error: 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service."

I have my firewall off, and I have tried installing Comodo Firewall. Same result.

The Security Center service was set to "automatic delay", but i have since changed it to automatic.

I have tried the homegroup troubleshooter in windows, which fines nothing wrong lulz!

I have tried two routers, with the modem in bridge mode.

I have windows 7 64bit and I have updated my nic drivers

Thanks for any help
