    Hello Austinomical, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    See if setting the service to "Automatic" and restarting the computer may get it to run.

    Are you getting an error when trying to start the service?

    So I got it to work, what you said helped. But now after it has finished scanning it says: Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.

    Good news so far. You can now go through the items listed in the note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO to see if it may help SFC repair the files afterwards.

    SFC could not fix somethings, i ran it 5 times. I did run DISM RestoreHealth which did fix somethings but SFC still says there are corrupt files. I'm uploading my sfcdetails and hopping someone will help.

    Since the files SFC falsely reports as mismatch belong to the KB3068708 update, uninstalling and reinstalling the KB3068708 update may hopefully repair them.

    Since it's a false report as being corrupted with a mismatch, it would be safe to leave it as is if you are not having any issues from it. Otherwise, you could leave the update uninstalled, and hide it to prevent it from being available again.
