Dependent's are
RPC
Windows Event Log
Workstation
and Server

If i have to pick 1 suspect - it is RPC
Make sure it is started as a network service.

Also ensure microsoft exchange hub transport is started as a Network service.

Rest all are local system account.

thanks

The registry may have been modified incorrectly, or some how got corrupted.
There may be a service in the registry under the following registry key:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeSA

In the right pane, right-click "DependOnService", and make sure that there are no umwanted resources listed there.
if you find that there are some unwanted services listed in the above mentioned Key then take a backup of the registry and then remove it from the registry and try to start the MSexchangeSA service
