when I have problems getting uc to start, It's sometimes a problem with corruption in the uc_config.xml file. to recover, go to the unifiedcollector\conf directory and rename uc_config.xml to something like uc_configold.xml then copy uc_config.xml from the newconf directory to the conf directory and start the uc service. you will need to reconfigure your passwords following this process.

There is a known issue about the module WMIgen but only when stopping the UC service (just not closing properly). Are you sure it's during the start of UC service and if it's during the start do you know if UC.exe will stop running because of this issue?
