I am running 2008R2 .I try to start "Windows Time" service and it errors with message below.

"Error 1058: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it"

I try to change some settings on the actual service and I get error:
"The specified service has been marked for deletion"

Anybody have any idea what I should do? I have searched and tried editing the registry "w32time","tapisrv" registry key. I tried registering W32tm but says it is marked for deletion.
