Backup your this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nsi. Then remove winsvc from the Depend On Service entry. Now will the Network Connection service start? If so great! Also look in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services for the key of winsvc. If you could export it and post it that might be helpful too.

Have you searched your registry for any references to winsvc? It have to be under one or more of the "Depends On Service" entries.

Some checking leeds me to believe this service reference is mal-ware related. Try downloading and running MalwareBytes free version. Here's the site: http://www.malwarebytes.org/
