Kram32,

Your problem here is usually caused by the Spooler service, when the print spooler cannot work. Here is how you fix the problem;
 
Go to Start -> Run -> Type 'Regedit.exe'.
 
It will open the 'Registry Editor' window.
 
In the registry, open "HKEY_LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesSpooler".
HKEY_LOCAL MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesSpooler
In the right pane,double click on DependonService value.
 
Delete existing data and type RPCSS.
 
Close regedit.exe.
 
Restart your system and the problem should be solved.
 
Hope this helps.

This, “The dependency service or group failed to start” error is usually caused by one or more Windows services being disabled, whether manually or automatically.

Now to fix this problem go to:
 
Start -> Run and enter services.msc
run services.msc
Now you see a list services and their description and whether they are running or not.
 
These are the most common service that usually gives this error:
 
Windows Image Acquisition Service.
 
Help and Support Service.
 
Print Spooler Service.
Print Spooler Service window
Right click on the service you need; then select properties.
 
Change the service startup type from disabled, to automatic; then reboot your computer and see if that solves the problem.
