Hello
I have a dell inspiron 1720 and a HP Pavillion 775 y that are both having the same issues after removing a multitiude of recent viruses. I cannot get them to enable any networking services. The laptop error message starts with"The dependency service or group failed to start" and the desktop error message is " The Network connections Folder was unable to retrieve the list of Network adapters on your machine. Please make sure that the Network Connections Service is enabled and running".
I have logged in as administratorand tried to start the services but all I get is Error 5 Access denied. Any ideas?

So you have gone to SERVICES.MSC and double clicked the Network Connection Service, and tried to make sure it is not disabled?  (Mine is set at Manual and Started.)  If you click on the Dependencies tab for that service, you will see that there are two services that need starting before the Network Connection Service can be started:  the Network Store Interface service and Remote Procedure Call.  Are those running?

In Control Panel -> (classic view) System ->  Device Manager, is your network card showing without any error?

Try going to a CMD prompt that is elevated:   Start -> Run -> type CMD.EXE  -> hit Ctrl, Shift and Enter.  Then type these commands in the window that opens up:

regsvr32 netshell.dll
regsvr32 netcfgx.dll
regsvr32 netman.dll

By any chance did you try safe mode - I'm just wondering if the visus has disabled safe mode

You might need to run a repair installation - I've see a bagel variant that would disable services kind of like you mention - This was awhile ago but I think it removed certain registy keys

Yes, I'm beginning to think you might need to try a Vista Repair, also...  There was an XP Repair option available on the WinXP installation CD to reinstall XP over itself, which would in most cases not disturb your data or installed programs.  Vista has an option like this also, described here:

http://vistasupport.mvps.org/repair_a_vista_installation_using_the_upgrade_option_of_the_vista_dvd.htm

The difference between XP repair and Vista repair is that you must be able to boot into Vista in order to repair it, while the XP repair option was chosen in XP's Recovery Console, which meant that XP didn't necessarily have to be still bootable.

Thanks, yes it will boot into safe mode. I had to boot into safe mode to get rid of some of the viruses. I will try the Vista repair next.
Thanks for the help!

In that case,  guess is you are missing some registry keys - good luck with the repair

Sorry for not getting back with you.
No luck. It was also suggested that I uninstall and reinstall the network adapters with the hope that upon rediscovery, the drivers would be reinstalled and network connectivity would be re-established. Didn't work.
I have not taken it any further yet. still will try the Vista repair.
