Have you tried booting in secure mode and/or did you turned of some services by yourself? –  derty Feb 8 '13 at 9:43
can't remember i turned of any services my self, and I didn't boot in secure mode. –  Amr ElGarhy Feb 8 '13 at 9:45
Start the program msconfig and have a look at your services. Give the secure mode a try too!! –  derty Feb 8 '13 at 10:01
which service should be running to make this work? –  Amr ElGarhy Feb 8 '13 at 10:20
First, run the System File checker to see if you have any corrupted system files. Click Start Type: CMD, from the results, right click CMD Click Run as Administrator, At the Command Prompt, type: sfc/scannow, and press ENTER This will check for any integrity violations and fix any corrupted operating system files. Restart your system –  James Young Feb 8 '13 at 15:19

Such problems are sometimes fixed by running the System Update Readiness Tool.
Reboot the computer after running this tool.

Check also that the following services are running : The Windows Modules Installer service and the Windows Update service.
