WEe have a Vista Home Premium Edition w Symantec 2010 Security Suite
User is unable toc onnect to the internet wired or wireless (unless if IP is statically assigned).
Network Connection icon in the system tray shows "Connection Status: the dependancy service ir group failed to start"
I ran SFC /scannow command that didn't help.
Then I found this link: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/itprovistanetworking/thread/bf4f3d94-09ca-4549-abe1-bfa3aae90458/
and tried the following, but it didn't help.
takeown /f C:\Windows\System32\nlasvc
.dll /G "user name":F
Deleted the nlasvc.dll and replaced it
I checked and the following services are not running and also fail to start:
DHCP, Network Location Awareness
I haven't tried to repair Vista using the Vista disc as I don't currently have a Vista Home Premium Disk. Can anybody please help me out.
I think I also need to replace the wininit.exe
I tried to start the services manually.
NLSA service failed with: Widnows Couldn't start the network location awareness service on local machine. Error 5:Access is denied"
DHCP client errored out with the same error message.
