This error is caused by one or more Windows services being disabled. To fix it, you will need to go to Start > Run, and enter "services.msc" (without quotes). Here, you will see a list of services, their description, and whether or not they are running. The most common services that give people this error message are the "Help and Support Service" (for launching Help), Windows Image Acquisition Service (for cameras and scanners), and the Print Spooler service (for printers). Some programs and drivers, such as for Lexmark printers, may also have services that need turned on. Right-click the service you need, select "Properties", and use the drop box to change its starup type from "Disabled" to "Automatic." You can also start the service here, or you can reboot your computer.
You have to find out which service is failing to start, and when you figured it out you can check the service dependencies. After that you will start services which failed to start and caused the error 1068.
Once again you do Windows update.i think your problem will be resolved.
Check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307288 please. Does it refer to your situation? Hans
It's most likely that you got: Error 1068 "The dependency service or group failed to start" related to your print spooler. This problem was actually answered elsewhere in FaqFarm, click the link to the right --->
According to HP Error 1068 means "The dependency service or group failed to start." This means the spooler service (the part of windows which handles print-job queuing) is not loading, or not responding. I will include a link to HP's page on this error which has instructions on how to rectify it.
You have to change Startup type of power process(Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services ) to Manual or Automatic (better) and restart.Note: do not disable this process
The reason for this is that the mail server needs to talk to a global catalogue server in order to turn on services like POP and IMAP.
Right-click on service in services.msc and click on properties. Then click on the 'Dependencies' tab. Ensure the services that your service depends on are started and then try to start the service again.
it depends if your computer, laptop, or desktop is old or new. It's a one year old HP desktop.
It means that you've stopped one of the mail services or it's unable to start. Check network services, especially network connection service.
this generally happens when you have had some updates from Microsoft or if you have picked up a worm of some kind. open this link to see more info on how to fix it http://searchwinit.techtarget.com/tip/0,289483,sid1_gci994336,00.HTML if you still have no luck then reformatting your system will fix it for sure
This isn't an answer, but i have the same problem. i installed 'bricopack' (a visual style program). i uninstalled it and now the fast user switching service says what you said when i try and start it.
