Dear Experts

We've setup a VM to run Sharepoint 2010 on a Server 2008 R2 box running SQL 2008 R2

We're currently trying to start the User Profile Synchronization Service but everytime we click start and enter in the credentials it gets stuck on 'Starting' Running the service as the farm admin account, which is also part of local and domain admin group.

Really hoping someone can help us out!
I've attached screenshots and a couple of error messages below:
