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?
