Could not start the WMI service on local computer. Error 1068: The dependancy service or group failed to start.
Earlier this week, my laptop got attacked by a lot of viruses/trojans via MSN, which are now cleared. It is an HP compaq nx9010 running XP Home and I have tried to run an online diagnostic check with HP, but I get this error message.
I also had to contact Microsoft as I was also unable to use Windows Updates, but that has now been rectified.
