    Hi, a workstation on our domain running windows 7 64 bit downloaded updates from microsoft. There was about a hundred of them. Since they installed the machine won't connect to the network shares. It can access the internet easily enough.
    The Workstation Service won't start. It comes up with an error 1068: The dependancy service or group failed to start.
    I used System restore to go back before the updates and everything worked again. Installed the updates and the problem re-appears.
    I have 2 wireless network adaptors so I disabled one. I'm no expert at this sort of thing and any help would be appreciated.

    You'll probably want to find update causing that. Do not install all of them at once, go in "packs" of 10 (for example) so you will be able to narrow down issue to 10 updates and then find one in fault. Also disregard optional updates for now.
