Question about Compaq Presario Computers & Internet
Hi, I did a full system restore but now my laptop is running VERY slowly, also when I try and install anything I get an error message eventually which reads 'The dependency service or group failed to start'. I have started the machine in Safe Mode and ran Msconfig and disabled services that are not essential and that does not seem to make any difference. Any ideas.
Try normal startup from msconfig of course Task Manager will give you some indication as to what running task/process is using much or most of the computers resource. Why did you do a Sys Restore? Anyway here is some info that might be useful to your problem... http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1069085-dependency-service-group-failed-start.html cheers.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

SOURCE: help please
If you have existing malware or virus threats on your machine that will stop AVG installing correctly.
If you are installing AVG with Vista there is a KB file that must be installed before you can install AVG, AVG will warn you and supply you with a download link to get the Microsoft KB file.
Download and run Malwarebytes before atempting the AVG install.
You can download Malwarebytes here for free:

SOURCE: AVG Free install fails
I had similar problems with AVG, and switched to AVAST home edition (free). www.download.com has avast home and all you have to do is supply them with your email address so they can send you the yearly registration key. Avast handles maleware as well as virus protection. Avast automatically updates and supplies the customer with quality maleware / virus protection at no cost to the consumer. No I do not work for Avast. I'm a medically retired technician. Download the program and install it, the problem with AVG goes away! The real problem I believe has something to do with the SP 1, 2. 3, (or all of them) and it stops AVG from reinstalling. Note the Avast home is free for home use, not business use. They do have a professional program that costs you to use, just like AVG.

You have Vista
In CONTROL PANEL select RECOVERY
Then "Advanced Recovery Settings"
Then "Return your computer to factory settings".
Be AWARE you will loose all of your files and after market downloads.
May want to BACK-UP!

Tips for a great answer:
You may have installed every
softwares on your System Drive (typically C:/, where the OS is installed). Try to install them on other partitions, this
will free up some spaces.
You may try with Disk Cleanup
utility. To use it go to: Start> All
Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disk CleanUp. This will ask you which of the disk to be cleaned
up. Select the desired System Drive Letter and click on OK. You may delete
Windows Error reporting files, System error memory dump files from there. You can also delete older restore points by
clicking on Clean Up System Files. Select
System drive letter as before and click on more
options. Under System Restore and
shadow copies click clean up. This will
remove all but the latest restore point.
Hope this helps, Mrityunjay
