Windows 7: Windows won't let me connect!

Windows won't let me connect!

So, as a previous topic, I said all my services had been turned off. Right now, I am pulling my hair out because not matter what, my internet stays at Limited Access. Is there anything I should, for sure turn on. I really do not want to have to go out and get my computer looked at.....

Take a look at which services should be turned
on by default here:
Black Viper’s Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations | Black Viper's Website | www.blackviper.com

Use the search feature at this forum also as I am sure I have
seen a thread related to this topic.
Click on search and try terms such as "Default Windows 7 services" or similar

Hope this may be of some help to you.

Everything goes well until the DHCP Client, service. I can't seem to get this one started.

So you have checked that all the services are set back to default
using the link provided. Double check because you may not be able to start
that service as it is dependant on other services.

Was there any error message when you tried to start the service and if so please post the details
of the associated error message. What is that service currently set to? (automatic, manual??)

What have you tried to fix the problem, for example have you checked the settings of your router
or modem and on your machine for the connection? Have you tried releasing and renewing your IP
address through command prompt? It's a little hard to try to help with limited information and without
knowing your user capabilities so the more that you can detail the better chance
you have of getting a solution, if not from me then from someone else.

Can you please do an ipconfig /all command and post the details
back here making sure that you black out the Mac Address using Paint
or a similar program.
