Can not start Services to share printer

I am having trouble sharing a printer with other computers.
Problems seem to come down to services that are not working.
Runnings Windows 6 with Lynksys E3000
HomeGroup Provider Service not running and won't start says error 1068
depends upon http, remote procedure call(RPC), Function Discovery Resource
Publivation, Network List service
Function discovery Group wont start (both services)
depends upon http and RPC

(Print Spooler would not start but I edited registry to remove dependency upon
RPC and then it started. But now other services have same problem.

Switched RPC service from manual to AUto and started it---no help

PnP-X IP Bus Enumerator service also will not start
What DO I do so I can get this computer to share its Printer
