Dependency service or group failed to start

  unomomento 10:05 27 Dec 2009

I have been looking on the forum and didn't come across an answer so here goes.

I am running Vista my Gateway laptop and one day everything froze. upon reboot, I could no longer connect to internet, instead it states;

"connection status:unknown
Dependency service or group failed to start"

I have tried a few fixes such as sfc/scannow, netsh winsock reset, netsh int ip reset and finally just a final check through admin tools that nothing is disabled.

I was wandering if anybody had another solution other than a system restore. cheers

If it is malware a System Restore may not help.
