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.
