The services will not start when I try to start them either from the Services window on the SBS server or when I log into the Backup Exec software. I receive the following error:

"The dependency service or group failed to start"

Please help! ...the backup haven't been running for days.

** I have read couple of articles on various forms for this issue and many complained that it has got something to with the user permissions.
Have you checked all the dependencies of this service and sure they are started ?

No, how do I check the dependencies? I changed the server password, which I think caused the issue based onthe article you just posted.

I checked that all the Backup Exec has the same log on credencials and the services still don't start

In order to check the dependencies, go to RUN and type SERVICES.MSC
Look for the service thats not starting. Right click on that service and then click on properties -- dependencies and make sure all the services under "This Service Depends on the following system components" are started.
PIC for reference (This is not the actual Symantec Backup Exec service, this is only for reference)
