Check if the service in Service has started?

If you mean to say you tried doing this in Service and it failed.

Then check in the Event Logs for the error. Maybe a Dependencies issue.

Enable the hidden here:

Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7 or Vista - How-To Geek

and then try activating again. I'd also do a full system scan with Malwarebytes Anti Malware after updating.
