This computer can't connect to any network via any adapter because all the networking services have been disabled. When I enable them and then attempt to start them I get the "error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start". When I reboot the services go back to disabled if I set them to automatic but if I set them to manual they remain manual but will not start.

I am sure there is a virus on this computer but Windows Defender has scanned and returned a "No viruses found" error.

It is not just the networking services that have stopped. I have attached an export of the services and their statuses see 20140804.txt

Windows Defender is basically for spyware/adware and is not a robust AV scanner. Download a portable AV and run that. You can find one here... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/emsisoft-emergency-kit/ . You will need access to another PC to do this of course. Just copy it to a flash drive and move it to the PC in question.
