    OK, the problem is the components it depends on is not communicating with it - it could be registry or corrupt sytem files - this error can occur with any service - best would be to do a system restore.

    or you can run from command prompt as admin

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8
