When I start Windows the "SQL Server Polybase Data Movement" service is in the "Change pending..." state and I can't close it. When I try to stop it mmc crashes.

In Windows services, the status = starting, but it never changes either. I cannot stop it here either.

Does anyone know how to stop it?

PolyBase needs TCP enabled to work. By default TCP is disabled in SQL Network Configuration.
