"The dependancy service or group failed to start"
I have a laptop running Windows 7 64bit. It was working fine up until a week ago when it started to display "The dependency service or group failed to start" when I was trying to connect to a network. I have seen a lot of threads and tried a lot of things and nothing has worked. Also (not sure if this ties in) but I can't start the DHCP service "Error 5 access denied" will list what I have tried with that below as well.
NOTE: All commands and regedits were ran with elevated rights as Admin.
List of things I've tried and it hasn't worked:

Click Start, on search box, and then type devmgmt.msc press enter. From Device Manager, locate the Network Adapters, expand it. Do you see any ! on one of the network adaptors?
From the troublesome computer verify that all your network services are Started from Control Panel=> Admin Tools=> Services: or run box type services.msc to open Windows services.
• COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
• Computer Browser
• DHCP Client
• DNS Client
• Network Connections
• Network Location Awareness
• Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
• TCP/IP Netbios helper
• Wireless Zero Configuration ( XP wireless configurations only)
• WLAN AutoConfig ( Vista wireless configurations only)
make sure they are all working and not set to disabled although it looks like you already checked that and were denied access to the DHCP service?
This problem is common but with many different solutions and can be a real PITA to fix depending on what caused it in the first place.
Have you tried using system restore?
