Browser fails to start due to The dependency service or group failed to start.

The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start.

How do I find out what the dependency service is that is causing the problems.

Is there a way to upload the event log?

Thanks,

Steve

1. Run services.msc
2. Scroll down to Server and right click, then select Properties
3. Click the Dependencies tab

This will show you what you're look for.

Looks like the OS is corrupted. You've got core system services that are failing to start.

First off, make sure ALL your data is backed up before you start tinkering.

Next, run a full malware check. I'd suggest running TDSSKiller followed by a full scan of Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.

Another thing to try is run "sfc /scannow" from a command prompt. It will run the System File Checker and might fix some of your issues.

If you have a Windows disc you might consider doing a repair install or even starting clean with a fresh install - check out this article - http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how_repair_faulty_windows_installation_without_reformatting

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

C:\Windows\system32>

I tried to upload the CBS Log with the results of Scan but it was too large. Is there a location to upload large files. I could put it on Dropbox

Try rebooting the PC into Safe Mode (hit F8 during Windows loading to get into it) and then run sfc /scannow again and see if it can fix it.

I ran it in safe mode. I then updated all of the drivers using Genuis Driver and got the attached log when I ran it again.

How do you read the log file? What should I look for.

Windows seems to be running Ok. No crashes and no instances of the PC starting up but not the UI.

Seems a bit slow.

Here's an article on how to read the log - http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/928228

From what I saw, it repaired a whole bunch of issues. Have you checked to see if your hard drive might be failing? Depending on what kind of PC you have, you may be able to get into the BIOS and run a SMART test.
