    the dependecy service or group failed to start.


    My Networking is working for Browsign and FTP - at least, but not for Windows Update. It does not look right

    Error shown in Network and Sharing Center

    the dependecy service or group failed to start.

    The icon on the taskbar shows an Yellow Exclamation sign, and says Ethernet Limited

    I tried:netsh winsock reset catalog
    netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Rebooted, same...problem persists

    After further looking, looks like 1/2 the services are not starting. Seems to to with having changed from microfoft account login to local account. Damn Widows left 1/2 the services on wrong account...

    Funny is that the Accounts service no longer works, so I can't go back any way

    The Accounts troubleshooter does not work...

    SFC - nothing

    Maybe I have to creat a new account?

    Is there a way to clean an account? or to copy one account to another (everything)?
