Have you tried opening the properties of the particular service and changed the "Startup type" to automatic rather than Manual?

Just a side note...some services do not have to be "started" to work. As long as they are not set to Disabled, the computer can start these services as needed (when on manual) which can save resources rather than having them all running and using resources.

Have you first tried system restore to before this happened?

Here is some information about which services might/should be set to manual/automatic/disable.
