    To work around this problem, add the ProtectedStorage dependency to the DHCP Client service. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedt32, and then click OK.
    2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dhcp
    3. In the details pane, double-click DependOnService.
    4. In the Value data box, position the pointer underneath any existing values, type ProtectedStorage, and then click OK.
    5. Exit Registry Editor.
    6. Restart the DHCP Client service.

    This problem occurs because of a dependency between the DHCP Client service and the Protected Storage service. Security update 914388 introduces this dependency. Therefore, this problem occurs after you install security update 914388.


    During the DHCP Client service's startup process, the Protected Storage service may not start. When this happens, the DHCP Client service changes its status to "Starting." The Service Control Manager (SCM) cannot start other services until the DHCP Client service changes its status to "Started" or to "Failed." The DHCP Client service takes several minutes to change its status. Therefore, the "Preparing network connections" stage of startup takes longer than two minutes.
