cannot start certain services

I have the same problem with 2 units, both dells. I cannot start certain services. I get an "error 5 access denied" message. Because of these services not starting, I cannot access the internet.

Windows 7 Pro with SP1 32bit

Since when have these services packed up and any idea what you did that they packed up?

Have you looked at these 2 services by running Services.msc? Did you try starting them from there? If not then try there.
