    Dependency service or group failed to start


    Hello, last night I upgraded to win 10 home from win 7. However, I noticed that I was unable to use the Start Menu Search function or open the start menu and found out I was only connected to my Local Area Connection (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller), and my connection/internet is limited. There were no other connections available or found!
    So I opened up the Network and Sharing Center only to find that where my network should show it says "Unknown - The dependency service or group failed to start."
    In conclusion, I cannot connect to any private networks - possibly because of this dependency service error. Any help or fix would be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Nick
