Audio Service not starting - access denied

    Audio Service not starting - access denied

    My audio service is refusing to start regardless of what I try on Windows 10 1803.

    I have attempted the following:

    • Re-installing audio drivers
    • Updating audio drivers
    • A full virus scan
    • A disk check
    • An SFC check
    • Making sure all the dependencies of the Windows Audio Service are running

    None of these have succeeded in changing anything.
    Whenever I try to start the audio service, I get this error message:

    This made me think it is potentially the firewall messing everything up, so I start up Windows Defender and get this error message:

    Are these two problems related, and does anyone know how I can fix it?

    The Windows Defender Antivirus Service and Windows Defender Antivirus Network Inspection Service are both not running, and when I try to start them I get this error:

    I imagine that this is connected in some way but I have no clue how to fix it.
