    Unable to start windows Time service in windows vista

    Whenever I tried to start windows time service, I get following error messages:
    Windows could not start the Windows Time Service on Local Computer.

    Error 1290: The service start failed since one or more services in the same process have an incompatible service SID type setting. A service with restricted service SID type can only coexist in the same process with other services with a restricted SID type. If the service SID type for this service was just configured, the hosting process must be restarted in order to start this service.
    Do you have any Idea about fixing this error?

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
    Locate the following registry subkey, and then click it:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\TapiSrv
