Removing Service Dependencies

Here's how you do it

1. After you have set your services the way you want them and you have disabled/uninstalled something that another services depends on, run "regedit"

2. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\find the service that will not function, do to another service being disabled/uninstall (found in ControlSet001\Services, ControlSet002\Services, and CurrentControlSet\Services)

3. Once you have found the service right-click on the string value, "DependOnService,"and modify

4. You should now see a list of services that it is dependent on. Simply delete the service that you have disabled/uninstalled

5. Restart your computer and your ready to go Disclaimer REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOU REGISTRY FIRST I'm not totaly sure if this will have any negative effects on your system.

I used this method after uninstalling "Netbios over Tcpip" from my system completely, so that my Dhcp service would function and I have had NO negative effects on my system.
