Vista - Services/dependencies failing to start

Q: Vista - Services/dependencies failing to start

Hi folks,

I think I'm infected or have a serious problem with my Vista OS.

I was logged on recently when I noticed my Avast was no longer running. Trying to enable the protection again failed (no message).
I tried manually starting the Avast service and it failed with the error 'Error 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion'
I also noticed that I had no internet access and a whole bunch of other services failed to start (including Windows Firewall).
The next thing I tried was a system restore (as an update was done recently I used the one before that).
This got me back the internet but no firewall or avast.
I ran CCleaner (I know now that I should probably not have and asked for help first but I'm new to this kind of thing).
I tried Malwarebytes but it kept finding an object and then immediately crashed.
After reading many posts/topics I didn't find any common posts that would indicate that I could find a common solution and fix it myself.
Many posts recommended taking a few logs so I tried to run DDS and GMER. All crashed while running.
I then tried the Microsoft rootkit indentifier. This also gave a lot of problems. Blank screens, crashes but eventually told me that CMD.exe was causing a problem before crashing one more time.

Lastly I went into safe mode and was able to run DDS, GMER and Malwarebytes. For GMER I had to unclick devices for it to run (didn't like the shadow protect driver it seems).

I have all those logs but I need to know what to do next. Should I just post the logs in the malware forum? Is there something else I can run to find out what's up?

Help appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi all

i have just cleaned a pc (XP Home sp2)at home from various infections, but before I started on it the internet connection stopped working. Having cleaned it there is still noway of connecting to the internet, Internet Explorer is really slow in openning and I cant even open the connection tab (all the other tabs open) in internet options. When I checked the services telephony is stuck on starting and has no dependencies showing. But if I boot into safe mode they are all there and I can open the connection tab
but the users dial up connection has been removed and it wont let me set it up again, I was planning uninstalling SP2 and reinstalling it to see if that would fix the problem or doing a reinstall of xp but hte user uses the PC to run a small haulage company and I would rather not go down thaT road unless I really have to

Any advice and help would be more than welcome

Regards

A:no dependencies in services

Did you get a HJT analyst to look over the log? I see you are in training and am wondering if oyu got into a bind.

Download WinsockFix and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it.

How is the computer connecting to the internet, dial-up, cable, dsl?

Also Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.

Hey everyone...

My New Viao thats just 2 weeks old got the best of. It currently have Vista business.

It all started when I was downloading a movie that required Quicktime. I installed quick time and restarted the labtop. After logging into desktop. i received "explorer has stopped working". i was not able to log on to my desktop from then on. when i would open the task manager i would recieve errors. i wasnt able to restart explorer.

i restarted the computer is safe mode with cmd. did a sfc scan.
it told me that it was 99% complete but it was not able to fix all the corrupted files. i then did a chkdsk scan, and re-did the sfc scan. same out come. i have the CBS log to see which files it couldn't fix.

Now every time i log onto desktop, everything starts failing,
"windows live mseeneger stopped working, "host process for windows services stopped working" , 'windows media player stopped working" my Internet explored disappeared and i get a "Iexploror is not a valid win32 application". It cant install the drivers when i insert a USB key. i even get the blue screen of death at times.

I did a system restore and it didnt help. i tried to repair windows through my vista cd, and it didnt detect anything ot repair. I'm really stumped on this. I do know that everything works in safe mode.

i have the file i got from System file checker, i didnt want to post it, theres alot of text!

Before the BSOD, he gets some errors in the event viewer, where:

The [EXAMPLE] service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

He gets about 10 errors over about 10, maybe 15 minutes.
The BSODs started on the 11/08/16. No new hardware has been installed, nor software.

When my computer starts the Windows XP theme is replaced with the classic and after im signed in I have no internet connection and sometimes no audio. I checked my system logs and noticed a lot of services failed to start. When I go into services.msc a lot of the services set to automatic weren't running and WebClient is stuck in "stopping". When I start the themes service my xp theme returns and the same with Windows Audio. To regain internet access I have to go into task manager and end the svchost.exe process(es) under LOCAL SERVICE, then go into services.msc and first start DHCP Client and then WebClient. When online using internet explorer(8) once in a while a new window will open to a random site or advertisement. Once IE wouldn't connect and then just closed by itself. When I ran GMER i stopped my antivirus program and my firewall (i didnt receive any alerts) but I left IE running (three windows) and all turned white and froze, I tried opening task manager but it wouldn't open and when I hit ctrl + alt + delete only my background showed and my computer froze. I am running Avast! Antivirus protection and Sygate Personal Firewall on my computer. The AVG browser plugins are enabled in IE. I have Windows XP Pro SP3. It looks like the same problem that Tibasco is having.

It appears that you have two antivirus programs installed and running, avast! and AVG. While this may seem like better protection, they can actually conflict with one another and cause system instability or even system hangs. Please choose one to keep and uninstall the other via Add or Remove Programs in your Control Panel. I suggest uninstalling AVG.

This all started with a Norton Antivirus upgrade. The machine is a clone with 2000 Pro SP4, 2GHz, 512MB and is used solely to run some proprietary software to create informational still/video ads for our small community channel.

I have been wrestling with this for a couple days and cannot do a format and reinstall because I do not even have the ad software to reinstall.

I have done a lot already. Windows 2000 had been reloaded over itself which may have caused some of the problem. I believe the CD used for the reinstall was 2k SP2 and the machine already had SP4 on it.

The Windows installer was screwed up and installer 3.1 was installed and would just not work (I kept getting the I/O overlap error and it would not start). I unregistered and renamed the Installer files and downloaded/installed the 2.0 distribution. Now the Installer service starts automatically. However, I am having no luck removing some programs from add/remove programs. The old Norton Antivirus 2003, PCAywhere 10.5, Live Update, Live Reg and several other items can be removed but are back upon restart. I also uninstalled all of the Windows Updates, but they "come back" in the add/remove programs list (but if you click on them most of them just give you the "an error occurred . . . would you like to . . ." message and they disappear until the next restart.

I have used the Windows Installer Cleanup utility and it did not fix the problem. It is like this machine has some System Restore ... Read more

I am running Windows Vista (32-bit) and when I tried to open Google Chrome I got the message "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the Event Log for more information". When I tried to open the Event Viewer from the start menu nothing happened. I subsequently discovered that the start menu appeared to be locked or frozen, as I couldn't click on anything. In order to use the start menu again I logged off via Ctrl+Alt+Del and got a message that said there were "too many other files in use by 16-bit programs".

I've worked around the Chrome issue by downloading it again off another browser (without uninstalling) and it appears to be ok. But I had a similar issue when Windows Update wasn't working and programs weren't opening and the start menu was subsequently locking.

I'm assuming there's some broader issue with my system given the issues I'm having opening certain programs/services from the start menu and it then becoming locked/unusable.

Has anyone had the same issues and is there a solution?

Thanks

If I go to properties and click on Dependencies I get a Win32 error - the service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

I get the exact behavior when I try to start DNS Client.

There are no restore points available. There are no viruses or malware according to TDSSKiller, Malwarebytes and ComboFix. When I try to use Internet Explorer I get the 'page cannot be displayed' .

So I went there after some suggestions by some members on here, and tried to turn a few programs automatic(not the delayed start) but when I tried to start some of them, I got this message:

Error 1068: the dependency service or group failed to start

So is there a way to fix this?

A:Error 1068 failed to start when trying to start services

Yes, possibly possible! What are the names of the services you are dealing with?

Double click the service - go to the "Dependencies" tab - Check the service names list under "This service depends on the following system components" and then make sure that all the services listed there are already started.

For example, if you're trying to start a service which has dependency on "Windows firewall" service, you need to first make sure Windows firewall service is STARTED.

Hello,
I have an Acer Aspire 5742 6824 with Window 7 on it.
Lately it's been having problems with starting up. A white dash will appear in the top left part of the screen and then the big Acer symbol will show up (Like usual) Then it will suddenly shut down. The shut down is only for a moment before it roars to life again and repeats the same process. I have no idea how long it would do it if I left it, but it just keep repeating. I have no idea how I'm stopping it either. I tried holding the power button, but that doesn't seem to work at all. Often I end up just clicking random buttons on my keyboard until it finally continues the start-up like normal. I then restart my computer. 
How do I fix this problem? 

A:Failing to start up

Can you boot into the Advanced Boot Options?
 
Immediately after pressing the power button start tapping the F8 key.  You will see a image similar to the one below.
 

 
Use the up or down key to navigate to Disable automatic restart on system failure and press Enter.
 
With the automatic restart disabled you should receive blue screen with a ***STOP: error similar to the one in the image below.
 

 
Copy the error exactly and include it in your next post.
 
If you are unable to boot into normal mode, go back to the Advanced Boot Options and click on Safe Mode with Networking.
 
Let us know what you find.

Hi guys I'm having this error the "boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible ...oxc000000e"
Basically what is happening is the past week or 2 I have been getting the BSOD kernel data inpage error at random times during gaming. After some research I downloaded crystal disk info and found my HD is running at a peak of 66 celsius!
Well now at random it decides to not even start up and I now have the boot manager failure.
I have Taken my hd out and put it into my girlfriends Hp Touchsmart 310 and after running my system restore disk everything booted up fine so I've made the assumption my Hd is still alive but why is this happening? Is my Mobo acting up? I couldn't boot her Hd in my pc either. I'm confused at this point and have no experience prior to this type of problem. Also I figured this was the best place to post this, if not please move it thank you all

Note: I do not have my windows disk that's why I made my own off my girlfriends pc.
My pc is custom built.

I was turning my computer on, when it just shutdown 3 seconds later. Like its making its progress then shutdown...Also the power button was a little pushed in farther than usual dont know if that has anything to do with it. Anyways it took me roughly 5 tries before the computer would start. Does this have anything to do with computer dieing? or maybe power supply isn't giving required power at start?

A:Computer is failing to start.

It could be the ps, system instability, hard drive issues, lots of things. Lets start with the power button. What do you mean it was pushed in further than usual? If it is getting stuck I can see it being in a powerdown loop.

Yesterday, I ran into some problems with my Adobe products, Photoshop, After Effects, etc. wherein the program would begin to load, the splash screen would appear, but the program would give the "x has stopped working" error message and close down. It would always occur when the splash screen showed "Initializing", near the end of the load. I ended up uninstalling CS6, installing the trial for their 2015 product, CC, and this showed the same problem. I contacted adobe and they were less than helpful.

I noticed that there were some other programs not opening. Namely a few games, and Blizzards Battle.net client. Again, a loading splash screen would appear, and during loading it would close down, except without an error message this time.

I decided to download MalwareBytes, but this wouldn't load either. I tried downloading MalwareBytes Chameleon, to try and end any processes that might prevent MalwareBytes from opening. It did open, but failed to fix it. I rebooted in safe mode, and both Battle.net and MalwareBytes opened fine, however MalwareBytes didnt find any threats. (Edit: Photoshop also worked in safe mode)

I reinstalled graphics drivers, which had no effect. I thought there may be corrupt windows files, so I used sfc /scannow to try and correct some ... Read more

Hi
It seems some others are having a similar problem but thought I had to start my own post?

Yesterday and this morning my pc refuses to boot initially. Sometimes it goes to the POST and stops there, sometimes to the windows 7 screen and stops there. I managed to start in safe mode but the only thing odd in there was 'C: was ok, A: (floppy) ok, D: was renamed 'F' and E: was ok (I have a TSSTcorp DVD drive and a Lite-On lightscribe drive).

Also, after the first few attempts to start, the recovery window opened and tried to repair and even gave the option to system restore but to no avail (on the reboot it froze again). I did notice on the top of the 'repair' window it said 'Windows 7 on 'D:' drive, which I thought was odd because obviously my operating system is on 'C:'!!

Eventually (and I hadn't done anything) my pc started up and now I have 'C:' 'A:' ' E:'........no D or F? At one point I did insert my W7 disk hoping to boot from it but on the black screen it said 'CD, no boot mgr found'. But thinking about that, if I had put it in the drive that now doesn't exist, that could have been the cause of that problem.

Sometimes the drawer seems tempremental on my TSSTcorp drive (the one that doesn't show up now), could this drive be causing the startup problem with my computer?? I can disconnect it but not sure if this would have anything to do with it.

Hi all.
I have a DELL Dimension XPS 420 that's failing to start up.
It gets to the second screen, ie past the first that has the dell logo and options of f2 and f12.
On the second screen, it tells me that my RAID-0 setup is normal and that both hdds are working. Extensive diagnostics detected no problems and i have tried unplugging and replugging my two dvd drives and two hdds. Not too confident about pulling anything else out, never built my own machine before. It has successfully booted once since the error first appeared and I have no idea why. I assumed something had fixed the problem and it was gone, but it returned after one restart and I can't get it to start up once again.
I am absolutely at a loss for how to deal with this. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Failing to start after overheating

Please post the make and model. I would recommend dusting out the computer to prevent another over heat. Heat is a computers enemy. Have you tried booting to safe mode?
 
Generally you can get to safe mode by tapping F8 many times after powering on the machine, this will bring up the boot menu options. Use your arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking. From there you can try a restore point etc.

There's not a whole bunch of options if the system won't boot to windows.
First off, if you can see the file - back them up to external media (a USB drive of some sort is usually the easiest way).

Then try (in this order):
- Startup repair
- System Restore
- DISM/SFC.EXE (I can't recall if these will run from the Command Prompt)
- Refresh
- Reset (wipes everything out!)

Also when my computer is able to start I get these random prompts from my StartUp Monitor asking if I want to allow these random .dll files being able to be able to start on start up. Also most of the time my internet fails to even work, I'm connected to the internet but web pages won't load. The other computer connected to this network loads pages fine all the time so I know it just has to be something with my computer.

I recently upgraded my computer to windows 7, and with that came a full wipe (I was running XP before). Because of this, I need to redownload a lot of the programs I had before, but I've been running into a problem. The installers for programs all fail to start.

I can see them in the process menu of the task manager, but they get to a seemingly random memory usage and then just stops. the same program will always stop within about 5 K memory usage of where it stopped before. (ex. MapleStory always stops between 4713-4718, and another program always stopped at 1715-1720)

The only programs I can get to start are the ones I run from CDs. I did get google chrome downloaded and installed no problem.

I tried running in selective start up mode, but it didn't fix anything.

A major example of this is maplestory. I've tried multiple mirrors and the downloader from nexon but none work.

I've had this issue a few days now and am trying to troubleshoot it. It's a Windows XP SP3 machine. A few days ago MSE stayed red on booting the PC. A restart fixed it. The next day it did this again and a restart did not fix it. I had Superantispyware installed as well and ran a full scan- 7 minutes into this scan MSE turns green. Full scan finds no malware anyway. Reboot and MSE works. This morning I ran the PC for an hour, things worked fine, shut down a bit then restarted and MSE failed to start. Reboot and still not working. Waited 10 minutes, it didn't come on, I had to uninstall MSE and reinstall the program, which now works.

I've only installed a few games recently, all gog.com downloads. A week or so ago right before this began I switched XP to classic mode. While I doubt it's the cause, could the switch to classic mode have caused a conflict?

I uninstalled SAS in case it was suddenly conflicting though it hasn't before.

I did some Google searching and found a suggestion to make sure 3 services were set to automatic start- RPC Locator, BITS and Windows Installer. 2 of the 3 were set to manual, I changed them to automatic. I haven't had MSE fail to start again after several reboots.

So what's the problem? Did SAS suddenly conflict? Did changing themes to classic cause an issue? As unlikely as it sounds could the games be a problem(most bundle DOSbox with them)? I've 100% ruled out malware as this PC isn't used much and I only install trusted programs and even so I... Read more
