    That all looks normal
    There are two reasons (that I know of) to get that error when trying to start that Service.

    1) The file is missing
    or
    2) The registry entry that tells Windows where to find that file is malformed (or missing altogether).
     
     
    One other possibility is malware action – try using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (www.malwarebytes.org) free version. Download it, update it, and do a full system scan (do NOT enable the real-time protection trial – it may conflict with your existing AV or malware scanners)
     
    Please check that the file C:\Windows\System32\sppsvc.exe exists (indications are that it does, as otherwise it should be listed as a File Mismatch under File Scan Data)
     
    If not, then the problem is almost certainly in the registry - which could be complex to fix in the forums. If you want to take it off-forum, please email me at ngsATcrashfixpcDOTcoDOTuk (make the obvious changes), and we can try and deal with it one-one.
     
    Otherwise, I recommend contacting assisted support at one of the below URL, for further assistance.

    [MODS – please move this to the Win 7 WGA forum]
    The Software Protection Service is not running -
    Click on Start
    in the Search box, type
    SERVICES.MSC
    and hit the Enter key - accept the UAC prompt if you get one.
    Look in the console for the Software Protection service, right-click on it and select Properties.
    make sure that the Startup Type is set to Automatic (Delayed Start), and click Apply.

    Try starting the service now - do you get an error message? Does it start? does it almost immediately stop again?
    Post back with your results, and a new MGADiag report.

    If it doesn't start, then please do the following...
    Please open an Elevated (Administrator) Command Prompt window and use the following commands....

    net start sppsvc
    sc qc sppsvc
    sc queryex sppsvc
    sc qprivs sppsvc
    sc qsidtype sppsvc
    sc sdshow sppsvc

    copy and paste the results into your response, together with the EXACT error message you get when you attempt to start the service from the Services control panel..
