    I installed Windows 8 on my PC works excellent I recently came across a website that stated to disable all the services on the PC and reboot which I did but things weren't working and I would like to get the services back. I went under services to start/automatic but some I get dependency or group failed to start. ANy help greatly appreciated.

    Have you done an AV scan? It sounds like you got infected on the website. Also download Mbam free and run that. MS also has Defender as a stand alone where you boot from a disk to scan check that out too.

    If you disabled the services yourself, do you have a list of which ones? Can you share which services are not starting?

    I haven't messed with the services in Windows 8 yet, but in Windows 7 you needed to go to the services.msc panel to restart some things. The New Task Manager may be able to do that also.
