The dependency service or group failed to start error (win 7 ultimate)

Hi, i am facing error of 'the dependency service or group failed to start'. when i try to connect the LAN cable to connect to internet, its not getting detected. when i opened the network and sharing centre options, it shows above mentioned error. I tried multiple options to fix (like netsh winsock and ipreset commands, ipconfig/all in cmd) but its not working at all. Even i tried system restore but that is also not working. Please help to fix this error.

Strange how ever I will paste the so called Solution ...



Step 1: Click START button
Step 2: In the Search area, type "regedt32" (of course don't include the ""), right click on the search result and "Run as Administrator".

Step 3: Click on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", should expand out to a list of stuff
Step 4: Next choose "SYSTEM", should expand again
Step 5: Choose "CurrentControlSet", expands again
Step 6: Choose "Services", expands to a super large list of stuff

Step 7: Click on "Dhcp", the right window will show the files in that folder
Step 8: Double click on "DependOnService"
Step 9: Delete all the words in text area, except "Afd", and click OK. You are done here

Step 10: Next under "Services", look for "EapHost", this should be a few folders below Dhcp Step 11: Same thing, double click on the file "DependOnService"
Step 12: Delete everything in the text are and click OK. You are done.

Now, close everything and RESTART WINDOWS. Your WLan should be back and working once your computer starts. Hope this saves you like it saved me. Thanks to original poster for the wonderful resolution. Your post was almost too obscure to find, but I'm glad this is SOLVED! I'll be spreading the word around to save people from the constant agony of WLAN SVC going balistic every time after a registry cleanup."

Well, I'm currently on another computer trying to fix my laptop. I can't use system restore to solve the problem because it won't complete. I've run system scans and there's no corrupt system files as far as windows can tell. So the network and sharing center (basic network and set up...
