Issue starting server services since performing January 2021 Windows security updates

Hello,

I'm trying to use RDP to login to the server. Will not allow login, just states that connection to the remote computer failed. Upon further review found that some services on the server related to RDP are unable to start throwing out 1068 and 1069 errors when trying to start necessary services.

I have a SQL server experiencing similar issues although I'm able to login remotely all of the SQL services are unable to start. Had to revert back the changes made to before the updates and the services are fine.

This began when trying to install January 2021 Windows server security updates. I've been in the process of troubleshooting a bit today, but I'm not entirely sure how to get services back running again on the server.
