You might have to take ownership of sppsvc.exe
Also check if your Software Distribution folder has been renamed or modified.
Tried starting sppsvc from command prompt (run as administrator) with ownership and got...
"A system error occurred"
System error 5 has occurred"
"Access is denied"
I had renamed the Software Distribution folder during a previous attempt to fix this... but I have since put it back.
sfc /scannow shows NO issues.
