Dependency service or group failures.... Please Help

Q: Dependency service or group failures.... Please Help

I have recently had some errors popping up on my laptop. I can no longer access any internet or network settings. It tells me the connection is unknown that a dependency or group failed to start. Kaspersky also fails to load and slows my computer down drastically.

Is there any known issues with a Windows Hotfix that would cause all these services to crap out like that? I can't see the windows update history either as all that pops up is a white screen. Any help is appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am attempting to the load the software for a Canon Mx850 printer to my Lenovo PC with Windows Vista.

I get the message Print Spooler Service has been stopped. I have checked in the services area and it is set to automatic. When I attempt to start it. I get the following Error: 1068 dependency service or group failed to start.

I have gone to the command prompt and typed the following: sc config spooler depend= RPCSS however I get message access denied. I am set as the system administrator. Not sure what to do at this point. Very frustrating. Printer works fine when connected to laptop. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Print Spooler Service stopped Error 1068 dependency service or group failed to start

Double click on the Print Spooler service to open its Properties. On the Dependencies tab see upon what it depends, and trace back to see if the cause/fix can be determined. Caveat: no guarantee this will work any better than your command attempt.

Hi

Like many I'm trying to upgrade Vista to Windows 7. I ran the Win 7 system readiness tool and the only thing outstanding was SP1. In common with many I could not instal SP1. I tried all the fixes including Chkdsk and SFC Scanow etc and the result is that I have no internet access with the above message next to the network icon.

I've tried restting the TCP/IP stack in a command window (restore .net...winsock..) but still the same message. I understand it could be due to a corrupt file in the sytem 32 folder and there is a fix involving taking ownership and deleting that. Has anyone tried that?

Is there anything else I can try to get internet back short of a clean instal?

Well, I'm currently on another computer trying to fix my laptop. I can't use system restore to solve the problem because it won't complete. I've run system scans and there's no corrupt system files as far as windows can tell.

So the network and sharing center (basic network and set up connections) shows up as unknown the dependency service or group failed to start! That and my wired and wireless internet doesn't work. SSID of different networks will show up, but connecting to any one I own or can access will show limited connectivity.

But connecting it directly to my Western myBook (which uses gigabit connection) works, so it doesn't seem to be any hardware problems.
This all happened after I went far away to visit family and friends in a different country and plugged in a really sketchy looking network wire. That and ISATAP adapter #3 popped up ever since I had this problem. never saw it in device manager before this happened.

Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hey,
I was going to make a new thread for this, but I might as well post it here. I recently serviced a computer with the Interpol/Moneygram virus on it (some new version which packs a bit of a bite, let me tell you). Anyways, After scanning, removing, repairing, updating, etc, I still could not get the WiFi to work. The problem was that dozens and dozens of Windows services had been disabled. I eventually just broke down and did a system restore, which fixed everything, but I still have this one question: Since I was able to get Ethernet LAN working, but no Internet access on the WLAN, what Windows service does WLAN depend on that Ethernet LAN does not?

Anyways, enough thread hijacking.

Here is a good start Kurohyou: Go to Start, then in the search box, type services. You should see it pop up. Once its open, find the services at the bottom called Wired Autoconfig and WLAN Autoconfig. Set them to Automatic startup, and start them each. In my case, this failed, and I received the same message as you, that "The dependency service or group failed to start" with error number 1058 or 1065 (I should know, ive been looking at it all day lol).

Anyways, when that happens, go to the tab of the service in question that says Dependencies. Expand the trees to view every service that this service depends upon. you will need to enable those services as well in order for that service to start. This will be a tedious process and by the end of it you will be a master of Windows s... Read more

Hi
I have a HP Pavilion g6 laptop and last night, after restarting it when the screen froze, it claimed that "no connections are available" when it was connected only minutes ago. I opened the Network and Sharing Center and where the Network Map should be, it says 'unknown' with the words "the dependency service or group failed to start" underneath. I've resulted to using my IPhone to find solutions and I followed a thread on this website that spoke of my same problem but midway through I got stuck once again. I've done the sfc /scannow on the command prompt and it found no problems or violations.

If you are receiving the notification: Connection status: Unknown Dependency service or group failed to start; and you are running Vista and using Trend Micro for virus protection, then a fix is available for your problem. The problem is that Trend Micro mistakenly identified a Windows service, Network Location Awareness service, as a virus and altered the service to protect the system.

Hi all,

Dont know where to start with this one.

A mate asked me to have a look at his laptop (HP dv4-1000ea) which is getting the following message 'Dependency service or group failed to start'.

I ran a scan for viruses and spyware etc using superantispyware and malwarebytes and found a few which have been taken off successfully.

Now the message is still there, it will not allow me to connect to the internet.

Also, i don't know whether this has anything to do with it or not, i can't do a system restore to an earlier point, as i was told to try this.

I have tried the sfc /scannow option from cmd, but that comes back with no errors.

Anyone got any ideas of which way i have to go with this, any ideas would be very helpfull.

Hi All
Was going to ask for advice to help me instal SP1 prior to upgrading to Win 7 but now I have another, more pressing problem.

In attempting the various workarounds for SP1 I ran SFC/scnow and Chkdsk. When I ran the latter it identified various errors on the disk that it couldn't fix and suggested using the f fixit function which I duly did.

After restarting I found that I had lost internetaccess. When you hover over the icon you get the message above. I've done some research and tried running the Netsh Winsock Reset line at the command prompt but to no joy. I've also tried systemrestore but when I try this I am told that there are no retore points!

I've checked the newtork drivers in Device Manager but I think they're fine (Intel 82566DC-2).

Sorry this is so long but you can probably tell I'm desperate. I'm only able to use the net as I dual boot and thankfully good ole XP is working fine as usual.
I'd really appreciate any advice or fixes for this.

I wonder if I've trashed my TCP/IP settings how do I reset them without reinstalling Vista?

Many thanks

Simon

Before you say search, I have looked almost everywhere for a solution!

Basically, last night my internet auto shut-off because it ran out of battery. Didn't give me a warning or anything, just turned off. So I turned it back on automatically and then it started BSODing. So I thought I'll leave it and just sort out it in the morning.

I then started getting the error of the "Remote Procedure Call" and then it wanting to restart. I did all the workarounds so now I can fully access my computer. BUT, when I try to go to System Restore, I can pick my Restore Point, but when it gives the warning about shutting down all other programs, it just sits there. I click next several times but it stays the same.

For some reason, I can't connect to the internet, either. I think my Drivers are disabled so I try go to services.msc and enabling them, but I get the error: "The dependency group or service failed to start" or something about Plug n Play. I then try to enable plug and play but I get info that "the file specified could not be found". The file it's trying to find is vrt11.tmp which is apparently a virus according to the net.

I've been at this prob for ages and I have no idea what to do... any help?

A:The dependency group or service failed to start

sounds like you are using a laptop.....at this point you might consider reloading Windows XP or try doing a xp recovery ..assuming you have the restore CD.
if you reload xp you will lose all your data files so you should save them to a CD or to an external harddrive before reloading Windows xp.

Hi guys,

Hopefully one of you can help me.

Was playing a game yesterday, and it froze on me and I had to do a hard reboot. Afterwards, I noticed a big red X through my network icon. Hovering over it, it tells me 'dependency service or group failed to start' and when I try to diagnose it, it tells me there is no network adapter installed or configured. It basically acts like no network is there at all. Now it seems after hours of googling and reading a ton of forums that this is a pretty common issue, with a bunch of suggested fixes: I've tried all I can find, and none seem to work! =(

I'm running Vista Home Premium, and so far I've tried:

*Running virus scans

*Using system restore to return to an earlier point.

*Installing SP2

*Going into command and doing 'netsh winsock reset' and 'netsh int ip reset' The first seems to work, but the 2nd tells me 'There's no user specified settings to be reset'

*Going into command and doing 'sfc /scannow' Which finds errors but doesn't fix them.

From what I read about this problem it seems that a corrupted TCP/ip stack may be involved.

Try running this batch file which will reset winsock, reset the TCP/IP stack and release renew your IP.

yesterday my computer blue screened. nothing out of the ordinary. a month ago I reinstalled my os because my laptop would crash every few hours. reinstall foxed the provlem but I still crash here and there. so the bluescreen auto restarts my computer after the memory dump or whatever and then crashes again while windows is starting. this has happened before so I restart, boot as normal, same thing. then I try starting in safe mode because that wprked last time this happened. crash while it is starting. try again, same thing. then I tried startup recovery and it freezes during that. I gave up after this and turned my laptop off for about 30 minutes while I went to eat my feelings. I come back, turn it on, and it works. the only problem is the wifi no lpnger works.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

One thing that we need to verify first and foremost.... is your computer still crashing or giving you the bluescreen?

For the Wi-Fi issue, run the Intel utility to detect your Intel drivers (including your Wi-Fi). If it finds, follow the procedure to download and update the most current driver.

There's a couple of things that you can try and both are done as an administrator from the cmd prompt pressing Enter after each.

Go Start - All Programs - Accessories then right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

First one - type -

netsh winsock reset catalog

exit

Reboot computer.

This is Jenae's workaround which has also proven successful -

net localgroup Administrators /add networkservice

net localgroup Administrators /add localservice

exit

Reboot computer and let us know how you get on.

Hi there,

This morning I turned on my PC, which was functioning perfectly fine the day before, and saw it had a red 'X' on the network connection. The Network & Sharing center said 'The dependency service or group failed to start'".

At this point I uninstalled the last program I installed, bitcasa, especially since it was network attached storage in the cloud, so I assumed it could be causing problems. After a reboot, that didn't help.

I went into services.msc and tried to manually start the 'Network List Service', but it threw up the same error, with the code 1068. I tried to start some of the services that it depends on, I think it was the DHCP something, but it said "Error 5: Access Denied".
Furthermore, I did some basic troubleshooting stuff which I will cover below and was hit with the error message "The diagnostics policy service is not running'.

Here's stuff I tried:
Malwarebytes scan (was clean)
Basic troubleshooting (was useless)
Uninstalled bitcasa
Rebooted
SFC Scan (came back fine)

So, have you any idea what I can do to fix this? Here's a list of things I have compiled that I will attempt when I get home:

-Safe mode with networking
-Uninstall one other suspect program

net localgroup administrators localservice /add
net localgroup administrators networkservice /add
exit

Then my internet was restored but the Firewall had been suspiciously disabled, and unable to start.

I ran ComboFix as suggested by other users. And voila, it would appear the internet works and the firewall is running.

Is there anyone that thinks all is not well still, and I should do something else?

Thanks.

Two days ago, I had to configure my PC to my college domain so as to access the on-campus network access. The configuration was successful but on opening network and sharing center, I find "Dependency service or group failed to start" error message in place of the connected network name. Oddly, this error is not interfering with my internet connection whether on-campus or off-campus. Now, if I had to manually enter an IP address, I have to go all the way through "Change adapter settings option" and select properties from my WiFi name. I could not find any fix to the issue. Please help.

First, I want to mention that this isn't a network problem like absolutely everyone else online. I get this error when trying to run most applications on my computer. Some get it when I run in administrator mode as well, such as the CMD. It doesn't happen right away, but when my PC is up for a undetermined amount of time, it triggers, and the following problems occur:

- Start menu may or may not respond to my actions (When the start menu is open)

- Adobe Plug-in crashes on Youtube after a 30-second wait.

- If I wait long enough explorer.exe will crash and I will be stuck using Alt-Tab and Task Manager.

I've run malware scans with Spybot, Anti-Malware Malware Bytes, and SUPERAntiSpyware free edition, so I am at a loss. If you guys know whats up or what I should do, then please reply. :)

A:[SOLVED] The dependency group or service failed to start

Hi, usually a permissions problem in the registry reads "local service not "NT authority/service" as far as we can determine the SID is changed from "current" this is difficult to sort. Firstly you need all updates installed. It has been possible in some instances to fix this by changing to a new user account OR by running a very complicated repair of permissions.

Now you might find this workaround will do it for you so try this first:-

Go to start ,all programs, accessories and right click on command prompt select "run as administrator" at the prompt:-


Code:
net localgroup Administrators /add networkservice
press enter then type:
net localgroup Administrators /add localservice
press enter then type:
exit
press enter and restart your computer
It is also some times necessary to "add the user" so

net localgroup administrators <my_user> /add

Note:- My user is Paul so the command is:-

net localgroup administrators Paul /add press enter.

Do not worry if it returns the user is already a member of this group.
Let us know how you get on.

Hi everyone!

I'm having a pretty big problem on my laptop- I can't connect to the internet and when I try to connect in the network and sharing centre it simply says 'The dependency service or group failed to start' and I am unable to connect to the internet (Using wi-fi).

There's a lot more to it than that though.

Simply put, here is a list of the problems I am facing:
1. Can't connect to the Internet
2. Cannot change theme, stuck in basic (Themes are grey and do not respond when I click on them in the control panel)
3. Overall brightness of laptop screen has decreased.
4. When opening my anti-virus software (avast) it says that the software is off and I should click the fix now button to turn it on. However, when I click on it nothing happens.


Please note that this problem occurred when I was messing around with command prompt ( I booted windows 7, pressed F8 and tried to check weather I could launch a USB program through safe mode- command prompt). I figured out I had no idea what the commands were and tried using one of the few commands I knew- ms config. I may have changed settings there and this could be how it happened, I'm not really sure.

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds! (Keep in mind, I'm not very experienced with command prompt but have full knowledge of control panel options, computer, etc.)

A:The dependency service or group failed to start- Command Prompt

To me sounds like a virus or some malware got into your laptop.

Hello everyone! I finally got a new laptop after almost a year of struggling with my old one. I've had experience with using homegroup in the past and was thinking maybe I could access some of my files on my old laptop through that so I don't have to go through the trouble of manually tansferring everything via flash drive and what not.
I seem to be running into a problem though, my old laptop seems to be in its own homegroup I guess. Whenever I try to leave it, it says "windows cannot remove the computer from the homegroup". I researched the problem, and used the troubleshooter which said that the homegroup provider service wasn't started and it couldn't be fixed automatically. I tried restarting starting the service but got that error 1608 thing. To bypass this I've tried joining whichever group my old laptop is in, but it can't seem to be found even though the two are both on the same wifi/network. What can I do?
Thanks in advance!
If it matters, the new laptop is windows 8 and the one I'm having trouble with is windows 7.

Hello I just started having this problem. First off I own a dell xps 15 l502x.

It all happened after I unexpectedly shutdown the computer after having it on for almost 13 hours.
I turned my computer on, it booted up fine but I could not connect to any wifi network. Connecting with Ethernet did not help, a glance at device manager showed a yellow mark on the network adapter and isatap.
I decided to reinstall the wifi driver and now it connects to the wifi with limited access.
I could not get network diagnostic policy to run and trying from services to start it gives me an error 5 access denied.
In network and sharing it shows connection as unknown and the problem stated in the title.
So I do not believe it is a hardware issue, it must be software and has to be related to services because when i opened itunes, it asked me to self recover itunes service to sync. I also had to reinstall Norton because it was not starting.
I have no idea on how to fix this, can someone please help me on this dilemma. Thank You

Hi can you please disable the isatap adapter it is not required for internet access.

Also can you please verify that all your Network Services are Started.
Click on Start, type services.msc then press enter.

• DHCP Client

Hi zac and Welcome to Seven Forums,

Please check your computer's Device Manager and locate Network Adapters then see if there's any symbol - ? X or ! on it.

If everything looks good in your Device Manager, you might want to run Check Disk

Hello, MicroSoft tech crew. I know my issue is not something new to you, there are earlier posts with similar to identical problems to mine. For a whole day I tried everything I could find on the internet to fix my issue, but nothing seemed to work.
I cannot connect to the internet. My network and sharing center displays the following, instead of the map:
Unknown
The dependency service or group failed to start.

I am running windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
I used ESET NOD32 as antivirus. I uninstalled it the day this issue appeared.
I have no restore point.
Any other computer or device can successfully connect to my router.
Re-installing a fresh copy of windows is not an option.


These are the solutions I tried and didn't work:

 I tried restarting the router (1 minute power-off)
 I HAVE reinstalled my drivers for both LAN and WAN network cards at least twice each.
~ I  ran the following commands in CMD as administrator over 3 times, successfully, followed by reboot:
* sfc /scannow
* netsh winsock reset // netsh winsock reset catalog
* netsh int ip reset // netsh int ip reset reset.log hit

I have checked the following in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\servicel\NlaSvc has always had full control and read permissions for both SYSTEM and Administrators.

I replaced my nlasvc.dll file from C:\Windows\System32\ with one from another computer (and set TrustedInstaller as its owner)

If you are receiving the notification: Connection status: Unknown Dependency service or group failed to start; and you are running Vista and using Trend Micro for virus protection, then a fix is available for your problem. The problem is that Trend Micro mistakenly identified a Windows service, Network Location Awareness service, as a virus and altered the service to protect the system.

Alright in the last few weeks, this error has happened. When I go to control panel-->Security center, it sais it is not running and I need to enable it. When I go to services.msc, and try to enable it and my (Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)) it gives me this error.

Cannot do this action on this local machine.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

I tryed going to registry making a new key, named Security Center and a new DWORD and changing the value to 1. This did not work. Then I tryed enabling all the services that needed that one to run. Everyone I could enable accept one process, which gave me another error 1717.

Also under ALL my services, when I go to Properties--> the 4th tab "Dependancies" It gives me a Win32 error, which might be part of the problem.

But basically, obviously whoever knows how to fix this needs to know alot. =p I've been dinking around googling it, but no luck.

Anyways until I get this fixed, I dont have my secrutiy center running or a Firewall. (Windows XP built in firewal) which is my main concern, becasue I need my firewall.

So yea, Thanks in advance and I'll continue to research this topic.

Cheers,
