Windows has become synonymous with computers, and there are billions of people using this operating system at any given time. Error codes are not uncommon when using a Windows-operated computer. These error codes can either be resolved easily or may take a more complicated approach. Anyone who has more advanced tech knowledge can breeze through any troubleshooting process. On the other hand, not all are tech savvy enough to resolve computer errors.

One example of a Windows error code is “error 1068”.  This occurs when you try to enable internet connection sharing between devices. It also indicates that the dependency service or group failed to start. Anyone would agree that this is definitely frustrating especially if you would like to use your television to watch movies on your device or need to use the internet connection on your gaming console. If you encounter this error, you can take an automatic, or manual approach to fixing it.

Automatic approach

Windows Help Center provides an easy solution to this error. You can download a program that can run automatically and fix the problem. You can directly download the program into the computer with the problem or download it to a flash drive and run it on the computer with the problem.

This option is perfect if you feel you are not tech savvy enough to follow the steps on how to fix it yourself.

Manual approach

If you feel you can manually fix the problem yourself, you can choose this option. Here are the steps provided by Windows Help Center:

  1. Go to Start and click Help and Support.
  2. Under pick a task, select Use Tools to View your Computer Information and Diagnose Problems.
  3. Under Tools, select System Configuration Utility and then select Services
  4. Make sure that all the following services are turned on:
  • Application Layer Gateway Service
  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness
  • Plug and Play
  • Remote Access Auto Connection Manager
  • Remote Access Connection Manager
  • Remote Procedure Call
  • Telephony
  1. Restart your computer after clicking “ok”.
  2. Rerun the Internet Connection Sharing Wizard.

If none of these two methods helps resolve the error, you can proceed to the next step which is contacting customer service. Sometimes, getting instructions over the phone can help you execute it better.
