Windows Time service will not start on Vista Ultimate

Even though "Windows Time" service is set to automatic it does not start.  When I tried to manually start the service I receive the following error:
"Windows could not start the Windows Time service on Local Computer.
Error 1079:  The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process."
From Windows Time properties I have tried changing the log on from the "Local System Account" to the Administrator's account and to the local user's account, but I still receive the same error message.  Is there anything else to try?  Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, create a new local computer account & make it a local administrator. Password protect this account & go back into services & use this new account to try to start the service. If this does not work do a Windows Update & that's unsuccessful do a system restore.
