How to manage with the error : Cannot start service vmcompute on computer '.'


I am starting to donwload and run docker desktop but I am not able to run it properly.
I am getting always errors like this:
Unable to stop - The running command stopped because the preference variable “ErrorActionPreference” or common parameter is set to Stop: Service ‘Hyper-V Host Compute Service (vmcompute)’ cannot be started due to the following error: Cannot start service vmcompute on computer ‘.’.
