Recently, my computer is having errors with the DPS. It wont start and when I try to start it from the Services.msc it says, "Error 5: Access denied." I've read other various articles with the same problem. All of them say to use System Restore, which I've tried. I tried multiple restore points and all of them fail. I'm still running Vista (64 bit) on my '09 HP Pavilion. I can't upgrade to Windows 7 at the moment, so I need a fix to this. Thanks in advance.

I have the exact same problem.
I have also tried system restore, but the problem originated before any of the system restore points were created.
This is a customers computer, and I am convinced something happened around 4 or 5 months ago right after he switched from Cricket Mobile Broadband to a standard cable internet connection.
I have tried too many things to list but still with no luck;
