Have you checked to see if the dependant services are started? Those services are:

2. Universal Plug and Play Device Host.
3. SSDP Discovery Service.

If you double-click on the "Universal Plug and Play Device Host" entry in the Services dialog box and click the "Log On" tab: Is the Option "Local System Account" or the "This Account" option, selected?

to MAJ: the log on is set for Local System Account

Try changing it to the "This Account" option. If the field is blank, type in:


and leave the password field blank, click Apply and OK to exit. Reboot your PC and try to start the service again. It should look like this: click here
