Hi All,

I have an issue where when open the Network and Sharing Center, I get a message saying "Connection Status Unknown, The dependency service or group failed to start."

I have tried a reboot and I have tried starting the dependant services but I get the same message, or I get "Access Denied" on some.
When I go to the Routing and Remote Access window in Administrative Tools I see that the server has a red down facing arrow, and when I try to start the service here I get the same message of dependencies failed to start with error code (8007042c).
I have VPN client that connot log in and I am certain that this is the root of my issues.
 Please help!?

Do you have multiple Network adapters installed on the SBS? You cannot have two if that is the case. If so you need to disable one. Regardless, have you tried running the "fix my network" wizard under SBS console | network | connectivity | right hand menu.

I discovered that HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\BFE\Parameters\Policy\Persistent and HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\BFE\Parameters\Policy\BootTime\Filter where the cause of the Access Denied messages.
 
Strange thing is that the NT AUTHORITY\System is given Full Access to both entries. adding the "NT Service\MpsSvc" group with Full Control seems to provide a fix for me.

After comparing all the Services registry keys with a healthy server I found that either a windows update of some malware may have snuck in and changed these keys. After doing what I said above and mimicking the healthy server keys to the "sick" servers keys, the VPN came good and I could start the services again.

Pain in the butt!
