Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Computer: IBM R40 laptop
    RAM: 256 MB
    OS: Microsoft Windows XP | Professional | Version 2002 | SP2

    I have received this error in trying to start (via services.msc) Wireless Zero Configuration, DHCP, Network Connections, Network Location Awareness, Network Provisioning service, and Error Reporting.
    When trying to start the Security Center, I receive Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

    I'm not really sure where to go from here-- I haven't found any OEM system restore discs lying around for these machines, though I've tried an in-place upgrade with an XP SP2 disc--the license key on the bottom of the laptop didn't work (which I figured would happen).

    The devices are there, drivers have been installed (via Device Manager)-- however when I go to Control Panel | Network Connections, nothing shows up -- no Local Area Network icon, no Wireless icon, anything.

    I also tried pinging the internal loopback address, but that was fine. It cannot resolve to other domains (i.e., google).

    The results of ipconfig /all are:
    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: (none)
    Description: Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
    Physical Address: 00-06-1B-DC-09-BD
    Dhcp Enabled: Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes
    IP address:
    Subnet mask:
    Default Gateway:
    DHCP Server:  (which doesn't make sense as we're internally on a 10.x.x.x network range)

    Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:
    Media State: Disconnected (it's powered on, though)
    Description: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter

    Last, when I check the Event Viewer under the "System" tab, I see hundreds of errors, all with the same ID:
    Source: DCOM
    Category: None
    Type: Error
    Event ID: 10005
    User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM    (or the username)
    Computer: COMPUTER
    DCOM got error "The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service." attempting to start the service winmgmt with arguments "" inorder to run the server: {8BC3F05E-D86B-11D0-A075-00C04B68820}


    Is there anything else I need to add?

    Thanks for reading,
