Win Server 2003 not starting all services

I've got a POP3 mail server/DNS Server that after being rebooted a couple weeks ago now only starts just a handful of services, most notably the RPC process is not starting which means everything related it doesn't start. I've run my McAfee AV & spyware scanner and found nothing. I ran Spybot S&D and found nothing, although I'm unable to update it with the latest definitions. Because of hte services that are stopped I'm unable to access the Event Logs. Oddly enough, my email and DNS applications are running just fine. I did not install any patches before this happened. The worst part is that which I do have internet access from that server, the server does not display any network connections so I'm unable to perform my network backups. I'm trying not to have to rebuild this box as it is a production mail and DNS server.

I've run a HijackThis report which I've included below. Would someone be so kind as to take a look and let me know if you see anything wrong?
