  1. The Executable Path is

    And the full error I receive is..

    The directory and filename are fine, i don't exactly know how to check volume label (or know what it is) though. Not sure what caused this, I don't use Windows Firewall but I wanted to turn it on just to check some things.

    That is incorrect. Have you manipulated your services by hand?

    Nothing should specify both a variable that returns a path and an absolute path.

    The actual, proper pathing for this, with C:\Windows as Windows root, would be:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

    %systemroot% will point to the directory that Explorer.exe resides in, typically C:\Windows

    And "C:\Windows\C:\Windows ... " is not a proper path
