I have a Dell Laptop which was running windows 8 originally. It was updated to windows 10 a few months ago. There were no issues with the upgrade and wireless continued to work. Just a few days ago the wireless stopped working. 
 
Found that some services were not running. 
 
Trying to start WLAN Auto Config give me error 1068 - The dependency service or group failed to start. 
 
Went into the dependencies listed for WLAN Auto Config. 
 
Dependency Windows Connection Manager Gives error 127 - The specified procedure could not be found
 
I have been researching for the last week on getting these resolved. Havent found anything solid in the way of information on Windows 10. Any help would be greatly appreciuated. 
 
I have done a full virus scan and ran mbam. both came back completely clean. 
I have reset the TCPIP stack to default settings
I have tried to run windows update but updates will not download.

Did the problem occur around July 12th? A update (KB3172985) around then included:

 

"Fixed additional issues in .NET, Windows Kernel, Windows Update, authentication...Bluetooth, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, networking, and Wi-Fi connectivity."

Im not sure uninstalling the update that broke something will repair the damage. Instead find KB3172988 when wired in Windows update which may patch it.

I ran sfc /scannow. It fails at 33%. Says it found corrupt files but unable to fix. What are my options at this point?

Sorry I am not responding, but I do not have any ideas as of yet. The problem is WLAN Auto Config service won't start because other sevices that it depends on won't start possible because some of their supporting files have become corrupted. A system repair may help, or a system restore may be easier if it wouldn't make you lose anything important.  If not, I would suggest to wait for other users like FreeBooter to reply to your test results.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless driver multiple times to no avail. WLAN Auto Config will not start because one of its dependencies is the Windows Connection Manager. WIndows connection manager keeps stating that it cant be found when trying to start that service.

"Windows Connection Manager Gives error 127 - The specified procedure could not be found". 

I am currently running the DISM. If you have any other suggestions I would welcome your advice.

I personally would try a system restore to before the update. Do you have restore points?
