    I have just installed Vista Business on one of my machine. After adding this
    machine to domain (Windows 2003 Server Std. with SP2), my DHCP client service
    stop running. I tried to run it manually but getting an error "Windows could
    not start the DHCP client service on Local Computer. Error 5: Accesss is
    Denied". This service is Log on as Local Service. I tried changing the Log on
    account as well but getting a different error message "Windows could not
    start the DHCP client service on Local Computer. Error 1079: The account
    specified for this service is different from the account specified for other
    services running in the same process." My other Windows XP machines are
    working perfectly fine on domain. Please help me as I almost get stuck with
    this issue.

    I have the exact same problem. The diagnostic report says

    The following problem was reported:
    The DHCP client service is not running on this computer.
    This is required to connect to other computers and devices on the network.

    I tried to restart the service but no avail.

    I get choose another repair options message.

    Yep, same here,

    Seems this problem is pretty common. The un-common bit is a fix or advice
    from someone who knows the fix.

    I can only offer a work-around for you guys in that setting a static ip
    address will get things working for you..

    I am doing just that but still prefer to use the dhcp if I can and therefore
    will keep looking for the answer.

    So come on Microsoft, sort this out!!

    have you found the solution? My friend had the same problem and sh
    gave me the laptop to fix it. I looked and looked but couldn't find
    solution and I am about to suggest her to reformat the laptop but
    don't think she is keen to that idea

    hey, i found a work around to fix this stupid problem:-
    1- first you have to login using any user with administrativ
    2- start---> Run---> regedit
    3- go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip.
    4- right-click on the Tcpip from the left tap menu and choos
    5- Choose (Allow) for all listed groups and users, then press apply an
    6- go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dhcp.
    7- do the same as before.
    8- now plug your network cable or connect to the wireless, if u got a
    IP from the DHCP then it's done, if not you have to open the service
    from the administrative tools to run the DHCP clinet or stop and run th
    service again.


    This problem might be related to the DHCP server, seems like up-gradin
    from windows 2000 advanced server to windows 2003 may cause this probem
    or maybe the group policy in the active directory

    Why would you reformat the machine over a service issue? Doesn't see
    like a logical solution at all..

    Plus the solution is posted right above my post ;
