Windows 7: Error 1068 when starting service,dependencies win32 error

06 Apr 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Error 1068 when starting service,dependencies win32 error

I can't start the Security center started
It says " Error 1068 failed to start when trying to start services"
So i search and notice that it depends on "windows management instrumentation"
I tried to view the fourth tab "dependencies"
then it says"win32:Error 1068 failed to start when trying to start services"
and it shows nothing inside the dependencies box.

I tried the Microsoft Fix it 50562,got the same results.

Also I tried sfc /scannow and it tells me "fixed", after restarting the computer,
i still got the same error.

Is there a way to fix this?

I ran the Windows Repair (All in One),
i followed your steps,and restarted my computer after repairing.

Well,it seems fully works!
Thank you very very much!

There's no more "error 1068" nor "win32 error",
It's been disturbing me for few months,
I thought i should reinstall the system,
really glad to see things back to proper.

Here's the logs.
THANKS again:):):)

FSS is showing: wscsvc Service is not running

However, you are telling me the Security Center is doing fine.

Let's see what the folowing shows...

Please go to Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click cmd, and select: Run as Administrator

At the blinking cursor of the Command prompt, copy/paste (using mouse) the following, and press Enter:

sc query wscsvc
Please copy the results by going to the small icon on the left upper side of the prompt, right-click, and select: Edit > Select all

Now, right-click again, select Edit > Copy

Please post the query results in your reply.

Also, please use the following...
Security Check:
Download >
Save to your Desktop.
Double-click: SecurityCheck.exe
Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.

When done, a Notepad report opens automatically, called: checkup.txt

Without taking any corrective actions, please post the checkup.txt in your reply
