The Disk Manager services should show as Startup Type = Manual and as Stopped...so you are probably fine there.

I think the connection problem may be unrelated. Maybe try flushing the DNS.

I've got to step out for a bit, but will be back in a few hours. Keep me posted on how the machine is doing as it's configured now.

I was right. Unrelated. I got it to connect.

Now I notice when I open IE on the computer, all the menu buttons and the address bar is gone. Any help there?

Click on "Tools" in the toolbar (far right on IE7) and choose "Menu Bar". Once you have the menu bar, right click on it and choose the menu options you want to display.
