  • Hello,

    By the instance name SQLEXPRESS I guess you use the Express Edition of SQL Server? The Express Edition don't support the SQL Server-Agent, it's not a feature of this Edition. You can't start this service, even it is available in the service list.

  • Is the agent service enabled in the windows services? Did you run the configuration manager as and administrator? Is UAC turned off?
