I am attempting to start a scheduler service on server 2008 machine, the service will not start giving "Error 1058 - the service cannot be started either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it."

I have seen in other posts that this typically indicates a disabled hardware profile, but I am not able to open the service properties to check this.  When I attempt to open the properties, I get the error: "the system cannot find the file specified."

Trying to start the service via command line just gives the same error.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.
