Why? Read on. This article contains several useful steps for you to get rid of Error 1068.

Modify Registry

Use the RegEdit command. Expand the “DHCP” subkey in SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hivey. There you’ll find a string named “DHCP”. Change its value to “Afd”. Delete anything specified earlier. Save it and restart your PC.

Set Print Spooler Settings

To modify the configurations of Print Spooler service:

  • First stop it from using “net stop spooler” command;
  • Now change the required setting with another command “sc config spooler depend= RPCSS”; and
  • Restart it using “net start spooler” command. Reboot.

Start Essential Services

  • Network Connections
  • Network Location Awareness
  • Plug and Play
  • Remote Access Auto Connection Manager

Delete WMI Folder

After logging in from an Administrator account, set required read, write and access permissions for “Windows” folder. Go to this directory and delete a subfolder named “WMI”.

Safe Mode

Boot your computer in the Safe Mode. (Hey, don’t do it improperly. Use a proper way of configuring Boot tab settings in the MSCONFIG tool). That way you’ll not be able to load any conflicting application/process that creates hurdles.

Re-enable Network Adapter

Go to the Network and Sharing Center. It’s under Network and Internet page of the Control Panel. Find this category: View your active active networks. This category enlists all your active connections. Disable the active network adapter. Now restart your PC and re-enable.

Update Network Adapter

Expand top node in Device Manager > Network Adapter. Right click your active adapter. Select it to start the wizard. That wizard lets you update your network adapter. Here you go! Find the latest version or browse and locate the downloaded driver file.
