Windows 7 Time Service will not start

I have read several solutions to this issue from earlier OS's and it appears to be a netlogon permissions issue, but I cannot figure how to get to the service in Windows 7 to grant permissions. Here is what I have so far. Windows 7 Pro installed on custom built machine connected to a SBS 2008 server. The machine is not syncing with any time servers at all. When I checked out the Windows Time service, it was set to manual startup type. I changed it to Automatic Delayed and attempted to start the service. I am now getting this error message: "Windows could not start the Windows Time service on local computer. Error 1792: An attempt was made to logon, but the network logon service was not started." Logon account is set to Local Service.

    Regrettably, I only have one Windows 7 machine on my network so there is no "good" machine from which I can copy permissions for the netlogon service.

    "1.    Try to set the netlogon service as automatic, run your command to check the result"  
    You do not need a good machine for that.  
    Do you have a friend who could let you see the info wanted?

    I am a little dense sometimes. I would have sworn that I checked for the netlogon service in the services panel, but I missed it the first time around. Started it, then started time service without a hitch. Thanks.
