Hello,

On July 12th 2012, my computer installed updates. After rebooting and waiting for me on the login screen, I gave it a hard shutdown to check on the BIOS settings (for a little side project, in the end I did not save any changes). After booting and logging in again, I find that many services are not running. I ran a very thorough check for malware and viruses (took over 24 hours to complete), and still no solutions. I have uninstalled/reinstalled my Broadcom 802.11g Wireless Driver several times.
I now look in the Event Viewer and find that the DHCP Client service is not running! It is set to automatic start in Services.msc, but when I try to manually start it, it gives me error 1075 (some dependencies do not exist or are marked for deletion). Running ipconfig, I notice that my system is using an APIPA-formatted address (169.254.x.x), indicating that the computer couldn't find a DHCP server.

My Event Viewer is peppered with:

A:Solved: DHCP client and TCPIP Netbios helper 1075 error

I was able to restart DHCP services by deleting the registry entry and rebooting. I went into the registry editor, located the DHCP subkey, right click on dependonservice and clicked on delete.
However TCPIP Netbios helper I could still not start, even after running sfc/scannow.
The solution for me was to restore the operating system to an earlier point in time. In windows xp, go to programs> accessories>disk utilities> system restore and follow the directions. I suppose I could have done that for both problems? At least I didn’t have to reinstall XP!

Anyway I can connect to internet now

How to Flush DNS in Windows Using the Command Prompt

Step 1 ? Close all open web browsers and applications on your computer.

Step 2 ? Open the Windows command prompt by selecting the ?Start? menu and then go all programs, accessories, then right click command and run as admin.

Step 3 ? At the command prompt, enter ?ipconfig /flushdns? followed by pressing the ?enter? key. After a moment, Windows will display a message similar to: ?Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.? Once the message is displayed, the DNS will be flushed removing all incorrect entries.

Then , we want to get the IP reset, so, lets renew its settings and see if this also helps out :
you will type in the command box : ipconfig /release then enter, then next ipconfig /renew then enter, this will reset the IP , now restart and attempt to have it reconfigure its connections to your router. Post back results please.

Hey all!
I am really desperate. I've tried a few things that other people have posted here, especially Cookiegal and Lumpola but this issue persists.

I had a virus. I think I got rid of it. Avast scans and boot time scans and Super Anti Spyware and TDSS killer report all clear. However, the network shield of Avast and the Internet don't work.
Points to note:
1. In services, the DHCP and DNS cannot be started. I get the error 1075: service has been marked for deletion or one of it's dependancies are missing. (close to that)

I've checked the dependancies of both, and reinstated the ADF module in device manager after selecting the 'View Hidden' option.

My wife's laptop runs Vista Business SP1. It is in a Server 2003 domain. She connects through my wireless AP, but the DHCP service is actually provided by a Pix firewall. I have 3 other laptops running XP that all connect fine, and so do all wired clients. The Vista laptop only gets an internal connection and an auto-configuration IP. The DHCP client is not running (see the error in the event log below).All this started a couple of days ago. I am not aware of any configuration changes that conincided with this issue.Everything seems work fine with a static IP address, but that's not a solution.I found a few threads that talked about a similar issue that was resolved by adding full permissions to two registry keys for the Network Service account. This did not work for me. It sounds like my issue could be related to this and this, but the laptop here worked fine for years in the exact same configuration.

The full message is error 1075: The dependancy service either does not exist or has been marked for deletion

This started with a tidserv!inf infection. Norton End-Point seems to have deleted all related virus infections, however, I am now unable to start the DHCP service. I have to set a static IP in order to connect to the internet.

I believe tdx.dll was identified as a virus and deleted. it was listed as a dependancy of dhcp but had no descriptor. Currently it is not listed as a dependancy.

I cannot view network shares from this PC nor can I view shares that I host here on other PC's. Only this computer shows up in net places.

I did an sfc /scannow and it told me audiodev.dll and mofd.dll were corrupted and the files in the store have been corrupted.

I had to take ownership with the admin group in order to replace them with extracted copies from my windows cd, but I when I went back to reassign trustedinstaller as the owner it was not listed as an option.

my cd is without service pack and my installed service pack is sp2.

can anyone be of assistance.

Hello all,

I've noticed that a few people have posted concerning this topic, so I've tried to read up on as many possible solutions before posting. I'm recently recovering from a mild virus infection on my computer, and noticed that after I had run Avast! and Malwarebytes to remove the virus, my computer lost its internet functionality. Upon running ipconfig in command prompt, I noticed that the computer was not being assigned an IP address, which lead me to believe there could be an issue with DHCP.

I noticed that someone else had posted a very similar problem, but a few of the more advanced fixes seemed specifically tailored for their issue.

Below are the fixes I've attempted thus far -

1. Checked the registry for DHCP?s dependencies (3 are listed, Afd, Tcpip, and NetBT).
2. Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults by typing ?netsh int ip reset reset.log? into command prompt.
3. Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults by typing ?netsh winsock reset catalog? into command prompt.
4. Ran ?sfc /scannow? with an XP SP3 CD.

I have read through the original thread (now closed) and tried all it's suggestions. However, I am still having the same IP (on lack of) issues. I ended my efforts with the running of SFC /SCANNOW which took a considerable amount of time, but resulted in no errors of any kind.

I continue to get the Error 1075: the dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion, message when trying to start the DHCP Client.

I'm afraid searching the suggested logs for the dependency items it a little over my head.

A little background for my situation. The computer in question is my teenage daughters. A week ago she started having problems with the internet and I'm assuming this is some sort of virus. Whenever selecting a website to launch to, something intervenes and chooses some alternate website. Never the same one twice. I loaded AVAST free version and did a scan. I also updated Malware Bytes and did another scan. I then loaded Kaspersky TDDS killer and did a scan with that. After all that, and roughly 15 files quarantined and deleted, I now have this IP problem. I cannot restore the computer back to an earlier time.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Greetings,
I am having a major DHCP error on my girlfriend's laptop. I am primarily a Linux user so I'm kinda lost here as her machine is running XP. It's a Dell XPS M1210 which, conveniently, did not come with a recovery CD or even partition.
Anyway, a few weeks ago her wireless network device stopped working. It would look like it was connecting, but it would hang on "Acquiring network address." At first I thought maybe the device was shot, until I had the chance to test out the wired ethernet, which has the same problem.
After quite a bit of googling, I ran services.msc, and saw that DHCP is not running. When I try to start it from that menu, however, I get this message: "Could not start the DHCP Client service on Local computer. Error 1075: The dependency service does not exist or has been marked for deletion."
After more googling, I discovered that DHCP has only 3 dependencies: TCP/IP, AFD, and NetBt. I checked the registry, and those were the only ones listed.
After even more googling, I ran devmgmt.msc and selected "show hidden devices" and double clicked on "non plug and play devices." I TCP/IP and AFD are both there. NetBt, however, is not.
I've spent hours doing further googling and tried pretty much every fix I could find and nothing seems to work. If the PC had shipped with a recovery CD I imagine this would be easy to fix but alas no luck. I need to get this working so I can set up my new internets and I... Read more

The first time I did this, everything seemed to return to normal. Couple of days later, the same virus started up. I redid what I did...and it seemed to work again...until I tried using the internet. (I think Malwarebytes deleted something in the registry?)

There was an error saying that "DHCP error 1075: The dependancy service either does not exist or has been marked for deletion". I googled this on my laptop and followed some of the instructions found online. None of it worked...

I went into device manager->hiddle files->non plug and play drivers:

Hi.

Recently we bought two Compaq computers running Windows XP Home; we have cable internet and after the computer is left alone for a few hours, the internet just dies.

I have also found that if I restart the DHCP Client Service, then the internet boots up immediately. Is there a resaon for the DHCP timeout in Win XP Home?

Thanks a lot.
 

A:DHCP Client Service

every time that the internet dies, do you get a new IP address? if you do, it might be on the ISP side that is doing it..

also, if your running power managment, it might be set to turn off the NIC. goto the properties of your NIC in the Device manager, and check The Power Managment tab.. and you can check out the Power Options in the Control Panel..

hope this helps

We are running an NT 4.0 Server w/ SP6a applied. We also have ZoneAlarm, ComSocks (LinkByte), and WebWasher.

The problem that we have is, approx 3 months ago, our ISP had some DHCP problems. Since then we have not been able to renew an IP lease. In fact, when the lease expires, to get it back we have to re-boot the server.

The ISP provides a cable modem. We've recently replaced it (as of yesterday) and we still have the same problem.

Here is what happens: Eudora can't make connections for email. So, go to Control Panel, Services, and scroll down to DHCP Client and it is stopped. So you "start" it. If it starts, then Eudora can get mail (and all of the other internet connections now work -- we just use Eudora to determine if we've lost the connections as opposed to things just being slow).

Now we get a DHCP message that tells us that our lease has not been renewed. Click OK, and start a DOS window. Run IPCONFIG /ALL and you will see that the ISP's NIC has no addresses! Go to Control Panel, Services, and scroll down to DHCP Client and it is "stopped". Now attempt to "Start" it. If the lease has not expired, it generally will start. If the lease has expired, then we have to reboot the server to get a new one.

This procedure is typically being done 3-6 times a day. And on a weekend (if I'm in working), I may have to do the re-boot part 3-6 times a day!.

So, what we'd like to figure out is, what did we change on ou... Read more

A:DHCP Client service stops

Went to Zone Labs web site to check on a few things about ZoneAlarm. They mentioned some things that are supposed to be specific to ZoneAlarm PRO having to do with an ISP PINGing (or some such) to determine if you are still there. If you don't respond, then they knock you off (basically, early terminate your lease).

Well, the solution to our problem is the solution defined for ZoneAlarm PRO -- define your ISP's DHCP server(s) to ZoneAlarm as a "trusted" computer while setting your LOCAL security to MEDIUM. Then if your ISP also has one or more "testing" (probe to see if user is connected) IPs, you must add those as well. Generally, they said watch the Alerts and it is probably the last alert listed that contains the IP address from your ISP that needs to be added (this is immediately after losing connectivity).

This was a new feature of ZoneAlarm that we somehow missed having been added to 2.6.88 (we had been at 2.1.44). Having our ISP have DHCP problems and doing this upgrade about the same time with two others made this one a real pain to determine. [Our ISP finally admitted this week that in our area they have been having connectivity problems beyond DHCP server anomalies -- "regular" unscheduled outages.]

A:DHCP client service not running

Could you please link to the topic?

--

Just going off the topic title (DHCP client service not running) I think this should fix your problem:

1. Go to Start
2. Click Run and type services.msc and press Enter or click OKAY
3. Look for the service DHCP Client
4. Right-click the service, Properties
5. Change the Startup type to Automatic - the service will now automatically start on boot.

To start the service now after setting the startup type to automatic in the properties look under "Service Status" click "Start".

My PC was having some sounds with its audio a while ago, and by fixing it, I enabled some services. Some of them made my computer lag, and I disabled some. Still, it would lag. When I enabled DHCP client, my computer would have extreme lag. Without it, I can't go on the internet or play games online. I had the DHCP client on while my sound wasn't working and my computer ran fine, so I don't understand why it makes my computer lag when I have the sound enabled. I could have good internet connection and sound a while ago, so I don't understand what's wrong now. Please help, and have a good day

I worked on a friends PC that had some major problems. When I first got the PC, I was able to get to Services.msc, and there were no services in the list at all. So I did a repair install, updated all the patches, installed firewall, virus, and spyware protection, and removed a virus. I got everything back working, I think, except DHCP. I looked in the services, and the DHCP client is not listed. I manually put in an IP address, and it got on the Internet fine, so it's not a hardware problem. How do I install the DHCP client service?

She has XP Home Edition.

Hi everyone,

I have a windoews vista home premium system (desktop) and for some reason when I woke up this morning I could not get on the internet with that computer, Ok after exploring and checking I found out that the DHCP client service has stopped working so I went into computer managment and opened up services and I opened the DHCP client services and it shows that it is trying to start but it will not, Needless to say without that service running nothing on the system will run and I can not get it connect to the internet,

I have gone thru all the normal stuff of trying to get it to restart and even thru the networks diognostics and it will not start up for me, All it shows is that it is starting but will not go into started mode, My network shows my computer being there but its this durn service that will not start,

I have searched for support thru microsoft And followed all descriptions to get it to restart but to no avail,

I am hoping there is somebody out there that knows more than me about this stuff,

The system is an e-machine that came with XP but I upgraded it to Vista home Premium and I have no recovery option for some reason, Further I went into do a restore but all the restore point are gone,

Hi Guys,

Not sure whether this should be in the Win 7 forum or not but here goes.

Last week I hit an issue whereby I was unable to access the Internet wirelessly even though my laptop could see the router and had a good signal. I tried connecting up via an ethernet cable to no avail.

The issue seems to have started right after a Windows Update but I can't be 100% certain. If I do ipconfig /all I can see that DHCP is not enabled. I know the router is fine because my vista laptop can access wirelessly via the router fine. I tried doing some things I seen in the forum such as ipconfig /renew etc. but it said it couldn't contact the RPC server. I followed this up and was recommended to check the DHCP client service was started. It isn't even there. I was wondering if the update could have removed it.

Someone else who had reported the same issue on this forum was asked to do a system restore. I did this and the service is still not there. I am assuming that the non-existence of the DHCP client is the cause of my issues accessing the Internet.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Gary.

Hi Guys.

I have a couple of XP Pro SP2 workstarions where the DHCP Client Service just.. stops.

It seems to happen randomly, with little rhyme or reason.
When it happens, the taskbar goes from XP style to Windows Classic style for a second, then comes back to how it was.

I'm unable to find an explanation that could cause it...
I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

A:DHCP Client Service randomly stops.

Disable DHCP client service. It is not needed unless you are in a Domain setting. You can still obtain DHCP server supplied IP addressing from a router or other DHCP server on your Workgroup.

I suspect, though, malware is the source of your issues.

A:DHCP Client/Diagnostics Policy Service not running

I think 29 hours without a response means that nobody has any more of a clue than me about this. Here is some additional information if it helps a lightbulb to go off in ANYONE's head (my light bulb has been merely flickering for days):

When I open a command prompt and run ipconfig /all, I get what is in the attachment. As you can hopefully see DHCP is enabled. So why isn't it running? And why can't I start it? Is there anything else you see on the attachment that looks like it would prevent me from connecting to the internet?


I realize, of course, that the ip address of 169.254. isn't really going to get me anywhere, but I assumed that was a function of DHCP not being started. Ditto for the default gateway of all zeroes.

Is it possible that this behavior could simply be the result of a bad NIC card?

Can I possibly run an in-place upgrade from Vista Home Basic to Vista Home Premium? If it's a Dell PC and I have the Dell Premium CD will it ask me for the product key? If so, will the key on the Basic PC work?

A:[SOLVED] DHCP Client service does not start automatically

Hello!

Double-click your DHCP Service and click on the Dependencies Tab, make sure the other Services you see on the Dependencies list are starting Automatically.

Some of your DHCP Dependencies will be Drivers so go to Device Manger, in the View menu, click Show hidden devices. Now, double-click Non-Plug and Play drivers section. Double-click all driver entries you found in the Dependency list of DHCP one-by-one to open its properties dialog, and click the Driver tab;
Check if the Startup type is System.

Then check if it now starts Automatically, if not then try and get a hold of another PC and check it's DHCP Dependency against yours incase any are missing.

If none of that works try doing a repair install.

I remotely looked at a couple of things and decided a restore maybe in order or repair
So Advised to Hold the Shift Key and Restart

As the PC shut down - it mentioned Updating
and so when the trouble shooting screen eventuality appeared - I decided just to continue to windows
And the PC worked fine
and has been used every day - upto yesterday , when he got the same error message and symptoms

So i decided to do the same restart Shift Key & Restart
Then Continue
The PC restarted fine, no error message - so the Shift Key + restart , fixes something/
I decided to look into the issue a bit further
As updating had been mentioned last week, i thought I would start there
Indeed Windows update had failed
and I noticed that the Windows defender had two entries for the 30th and also for yesterday.
The Update also had a button for a retry
Which I did - and then the 10586 upgrade started to install

I have allowed this to run and install - so all the issues maybe solved

Hello,

I have a problem with a Windows 7 64 bits. After power on, the DHCP client tries to acquire an IP for all the network cards, even those that are not connected.
I can see in the event logs that after 2 minutes from the startup, I get one message for each interface





Quote:
>
Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0xMAC_ADDRESS. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server."


I have an Astaro VPN client that manifests itself as a network card and when I start it up (manually) it fails to receive an IP from the DHCP server. I believe it is related with this general DHCP problem because if I start it up within two minutes from power on (before I get the message in the event log), then it works.

Any idea how to debug this problem?
I had a Dell connection manager which I uninstalled (thinking it will solve the problem), maybe this one left some bad traces. Any idea how to find and remove them?
In general, how would one know all the programs that are dealing/interfering with the network connections and dhcp settings?

Hi.
I am running Windows XP Home SP3 on a Lenovo SL500.
The laptop suddenly stopped connecting to the internet (stuck on acquiring network address). Then suddenly sound stopped working (even though I have the correct drivers installed).
I have tried the following:
1) going to the previous working version - no luck
2) I went to services.msc and found the DHCP client won't start. When I try to force start it, it gives me error 1067. ipconfig gives an error saying "an internal error has occurred. the system cannot find the file specified". I have no idea what file this is. Also, in services.msc when I restart windows audio to get sound back, it starts and then stops again. I also noticed other services like Wireless Zero that should be running are stopped. When I turn them on, they stay on for a short while before stopping automatically.
3) I ran winsockxpfix.exe, sfc.exe /scannow - no luck
4) I did a registry clean - no luck
5) I did a repair install of Windows again and still no luck.
Does anyone have any clue what's wrong and how I can fix this? I don't want to have to format and do a fresh install if possible.
Thank You.
