Unable to access the LAN from my system having windows 7 OS installed. Checked in Network Sharing Center > gives me error message "The dependency service or group failed to start" and does not show the LAN active networks.
Few more observations :
Laptop shows wireless connections with limited access
when connected to internet with ethernet cable > internet not working
Checked eventviewer > System Logs > gives me error message "The TCP/IP Protocol Driver Service failed to start due to following error : The system cannot find the file specified."
Checked under C:\Windows\System 32\ drivers : TCPIP.sys file is present . however ipsec.sys file is missing.
Please help with next steps to resolve the issue.

If that doesn't work go to device manager
click on view
show hidden devices
non plug and play drivers, expend that
find "tcp/ip protocol driver" right click on it and uninstall.
