SharePoint 2010 Administration service failed to start

I don’t know why but i got this error trying to start the SharePoint 2010 Administration service:

The SharePoint 2010 Administration service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

But the solution which worked for me fine was the following:

You have to modify the service timeout values in the Registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control add/modify DWORD value ServicesPipeTimeout to 60000 (60 seconds)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control add/modify STRING value WaitToKillServiceTimeout to 120000 (120 seconds)
and Restart the server machine.

It is important to restart the server! I found this really nice help here.
