Alright in the last few weeks, this error has happened. When I go to control panel-->Security center, it sais it is not running and I need to enable it. When I go to services.msc, and try to enable it and my (Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)) it gives me this error.

Cannot do this action on this local machine.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

I tryed going to registry making a new key, named Security Center and a new DWORD and changing the value to 1. This did not work. Then I tryed enabling all the services that needed that one to run. Everyone I could enable accept one process, which gave me another error 1717.

Also under ALL my services, when I go to Properties--> the 4th tab "Dependancies" It gives me a Win32 error, which might be part of the problem.

But basically, obviously whoever knows how to fix this needs to know alot. =p I've been dinking around googling it, but no luck.

Anyways until I get this fixed, I dont have my secrutiy center running or a Firewall. (Windows XP built in firewal) which is my main concern, becasue I need my firewall.

So yea, Thanks in advance and I'll continue to research this topic.

Cheers,
Dane

These 2 services must be running in order for the Security service to run:

1) Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service - set this to Automatic
2) Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service - set this to Automatic also.

Then, if you still get an error - post back and we'll troubleshoot some more.

Just in case, you might want to try a couple of these free, online scans to ensure that nothing has slipped by your protection:

Fixed.

The problem was that I had Event Log disabled. I set that to automatic, started it. Then I started Remote Access Auto Connection Manager, (which gave me an error before) then I started my Security Center and Firewall.

I spent a buncha time fiddling around and researching and finally found it.

Anyways, usama thanks for trying to help anyways.

Hmmm - it should have run with Event Log being disabled - but results are what counts! Glad you got it fixed!

FWIW - the Event log doesn't take up all that much of your resources - and is an invaluable tool when you're having problems.
