Have got a PC here with VISTA HP 32-Bit running and for some reason getting error messages when trying to start the following services...

1)  Print Spooler - Error 87: The parameter is incorrect

2)  Security Center - Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

3)  SecureUpdate - Error: The system cannot find the path specified

There may be others but I need to get these services started up and I cannot resolve it.
Any help would be most grateful.
