"The dependency service or group failed to start." Error


Recommended Posts

  This also occured on the previous version of Speccy.  Pretty vague message.  :angry:  Have been using an (oldie but a goodie) hp Pavilion a530n desktop with MS Win XP SP3, AMD Athlon 3200+ running @ just under 2GHz (Socket 754) running on an AsusTek Diablo N8XLA308-Y2KC MBD.

  This error showed up on all sections including "Summary" page.  Request more information and reasons for such error.  Also, some resolution (fix/fixes) would be greatly appreciated.

  Thank-you in advance,

Run the program called "Windows Repair (All in One)". It can fix a very significant amount of problems, including fixing WMI & restarting WMI.
