    DHCP will not start . Error 5.

    Have not been able to get automatic IP on LAN because DHCP won't start .
    The error message when trying to restart DHCP is :
    "Windows was unable to restart DHCP Client service . Error 5 : Access Denied."
    I am able to connect to the internet with a static IP .
    I have no restoration points on my computer .

    This is what I have tried so far -->

    The usual commands :

    • ipconfig /flushdns
    • netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
    • netsh winsock reset catalog
    • netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
    • netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
    • netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
    • ipconfig / release
    • ipconfig /renew

    I have , of course , contacted my ISP and they have found nothing wrong on their side (or in the router) .

    I have also uninstalled / reinstalled my network adaptor .

    Have also tried modifying the registry by assigning permissions at :

    Now digging deeper , I set the command :

    This was what I got (note the system is in Spanish) :
    NOMBRE_RUTA_BINARIO : C:\Windows\system32\svchlst.exe -k LocalServiceNetworkRestricted
    ETIQUETA : 0
    NOMBRE_INICIO_SERVICIO : NT Authority\LocalService

    Any ideas? ,
    Thanks .
