    Midou, I know you're no dummy here but are you sure you have no virus especially with the different problems you have posted today? I had to ask.

    I was starting to think the same thing Popeye. It wouldn't hurt to do a full scan with Malwarebytes Free to see.

    Yep i was thinking the same thing and i have just purchased malware bytes anti malware and it looks that its worth it now all my problems of windows update is fixed and after 8 straight hours of searching the registry (am not a registry pro but i had some lessons in it)the dependency error is fixed like this:
    in "regedt32" i went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / CurrentControlSet / Services / Ndisuio then i changed the Start entry to 3
    Same thing for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / CurrentControlSet01 / Services / Ndisuio.
    P.S: i figured it out by myself, but anyway there was a total of 216 malware on my PC lol but they are all fixed now and am not getting any dependency error.
    Thanks popeye and sorry shawn i cant rep you again its saying "you must spread some reputaion arround before doing it again for brink".

    Ouch. With that many found, I think I would consider doing a clean install of Windows just to be safe.

    I think his point is who knows what other damage/corruption they may have caused that just hasn't shown up yet. If something else shows up, I would definitely take Shawn's advice.

    Exactly. There's no telling what other malware that may still be there and wasn't found.
