Exclamation "Error 2: Cannot find the file specified." [SSDP Descovery]

So for some reason, whenever I attempt to start the SSDP Descovery service, I get
"Windows could not start SSDP Descovery Serivce on local computer. Error 2: Cannot find the file specified."

This just started a week ago and i need SSDP to start so i can run UPnP.

You'll probably want to run an sfc scan first. Here are the instructions below which you can follow to make it easy:

  1. Open your start menu and in the search box, type Command Prompt
  2. When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator
  3. When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each

    sfc /scannow

    Wait for this to finish before you continue

    copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt
  4. This will create a file, cbs.txt on your [b]Desktop[b]. Please attach this to your next post.
