Microsoft Terminal Services Gateway Server stops working after a restart

Last Modified: 2014-05-07
I restarted my Terminal Services Gateway server which is running on Windows 2008. On restart, I receive a message that MMC could not create the Snap-in when I try to look at Server Manager, Terminal Services Configuration or even my event viewer. Under services, I am unable to start the 'Terminal Services Gateway'. I get error 1068 and refernce to dependency services not starting, but all the other Terminal services related services have started so not sure which dependency service is stopping TSG from starting or stopping any of the MMC from loading.
I have checked and all dependency services have started except World wide web publishing services, which itself is unable to start because another dependency service Windows Process Activation Service is reporting error 50: The request is not supported.

I have restarted this server in the past and nothing like this has ever happened.

Thank you
