I have problem with networking. View workgroup computers doesn't work.

OS: Windows XP sp3

Computer Browser Service:
Startup type: Automatic
Service status: Stopped

I tried to start it manually, but I got message:
Could not start Computer Browser service on Local Computer.
Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start

Workstation Service:
Startup type: Automatic
Service status: Stopped

When I tried to start it manually, I got message:
Windows could not start Workstation on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 2250.

Any idea about this problem?

Welcome to TSF,

You may also try this recommendation:
Click Start, type firewall.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK.
Click the Exceptions tab.
Click to select the File and Printer Sharing check box, and then click OK.

Might as well verify that all your Network Services are Started. Type services.msc from the run box then press enter:
• COM+ Event System (for WZC issues)
• Computer Browser
• DHCP Client
• DNS Client
• Network Connections
• Network Location Awareness
• Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
• Server
• TCP/IP Netbios helper
• Wireless Zero Configuration ( XP wireless configurations only)
• WLAN AutoConfig ( Vista wireless configurations only)
• Workstation

See if the computer browser service restarts and please update us.
