windows wireless service not running on this computer

I think I got a virus that changed some registry information. I am running windows 7 and cannot connect to the internet. When went under services and I have tried WLAN AutoConfig and it tell me Error 1068: The Dependence service or group failed to start.

I also received error 1075 when trying to start Extensible Authentication Protocol.

When I try system restore it also wont let me finish the process. How to I get access to the internet again?

I performed all of the above but still no luck. As far as i can see its a mal script that disabled my internet device (atheros) and my backup. In system config, my WLAN AUTO CONFIG is stopped and the apply and enable all buttons are deactivated. How do I enable those buttons?

Well, if you think its malware, run a scan with malwarebytes antimalware. Its a free download.
