    I have winxp pro with SP2. I do not really know how this started, but here is the problem.

    Whenever I go into services, every single one of them when I open the individual properties box, in the dependencies tab. An error message will pop up saying
    Code:
    "Win32: The dependency service or group failed to start."
    It does this on EVERY single one.

    Also, when I try to start the service for Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing(ICS), it gives me this error.

    Code:
    "Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
    service on Local Computer.
    Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."
    This happens on a few different ones, not just the firewall service.

    The Net Logon service gives me this error when it tries to start.
    Code:
    "The Net Logon service on Local computer started and then stopped.  Some
    services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example,
    the Performance Logs and Alerts service."
    RemoteAccess - Routing and Remote Access service gives me this error when I try to start it.
    Code:
    Windows could not start the Routing and Remote Access on Local Computer.  For
    more information, review the System Event Log.  If this is a 
    non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer
    to service-specific error code 1717.
    Task Scheduler gives me this error
    Code:
    Could not start the Task Scheduler service on Local Computer.
    Error 1717: The interface is unknown.
    And the last one is Windows Management Instrumentation. It gives me this error
    Code:
    "Could not start the Windows Management Instrumentation service on Local
    Computer.
    Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."
    Any ideas? I think the biggest problem is the dependencies one, but I am completely clueless on the whole thing.

    I've only had problems like that with services once, and the computer was also screwed up in other ways, so I just took the easy way out and reformatted it. In my case time was most important, and it took less time to reformat than to fix all that crap.

    You could try booting to the winxp disk and just doing a repair.
