Angry The dependency service or group failed to start
Hello everybody, firstly i'd like to thank you guys in advance if you're able to help me with this very VERY annoying problem.

I've been working on my laptop recently, once finished i turned my computer off like most people do.
After turning it back on hours later, i noticed that my laptop was connected to the internet router but had limited access which ment i could'nt get onto the internet ! So using my brain i went onto the control panel > network and sharing center and nothing came up apart from ''the dependency service or group failed to start'' ...

PS: I am running windows 7 on an ASUS laptop.

Please help guys!

did it say which ?

can we see the status of these services
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Status of Services

We would like to see some status information for each of the services listed below.

To do this goto

Start> Run {search bar in Vista/W7}> type CMD to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

Type the following command
SERVICES.MSC

OR
Control Panel>
Administrative Tools>
Services>

then for each of the services listed below - Please post back the following status information;
If the service is set to Started or Stopped
and
If the service is set to Automatic or Manual
  • COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
  • Computer Browser
  • DHCP Client
  • DNS Client
  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • Server
  • TCP/IP Netbios helper
  • Wireless Zero Configuration (XP wireless configurations only)
  • WLAN AutoConfig (Windows 7 & Vista wireless configurations only)
  • Workstation


If any of those services are not started/running,
then right click on the service
then from the menu choose properties and now check the dependencies.

for each dependancy entry - Check each of one of the dependencies and see which one is preventing the service from running/starting.

you could try a system restore - any chance you have a virus at all ?


------------------------------------------------------------------------

Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore
  • Click in the radio button Choose a different restore point
  • Click Next
  • put a tick in Show more restore points
  • Pick a Date before this happened
  • Click Next
This should restore the PC to that time & date


windows 7

There's no virus, i've checked. I have a feeling it's a windows corrupt file or something like that. Thanks, i'll try that and report straight back.
