You did not mention what version of ColdFusion you are on or what OS version you are running. That might help.

I was able to find this post about that error - ACF8 - THE CRON SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE.

Basically it states:

This happens because the neo-cron.xml file in /WEB-INF/cfusion/lib has been corrupted. You can replace it with the neo-cron.bk file however in my case that file is always corrupted as well.

And they go on to supply the text for a new file if needed. Maybe that will help you.
