ICF and Windows Firewall are different.
ICF was used before "Windows Firewall" (which came with SP2)

Oh, so how do I know if it is enabled? Or does that have nothing to do with my problem?

If u don't find any results with u antivirus sessions. Maybe its not a virus.
It can be that one of the Services like "Plug And Play" must have crashed or stopped, as these few services are written in services.exe; It takes services.exe down too. Now windows has a recovery technique for all services, and in case of services which are written in services.exe it is: "To Restart the PC". Other servives like "Automatic Updates" which is written in "svchost.exe", have "No Action" as their Recovery Technique.

What u need to do is:
Start->Run.
Type "services.msc". Enter. This will open the Services Window.
Double click on each and every service in the right-pane. (which will open that Properties dialog for that service).
In the General Tab, check if the Path of executable for that service is "C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe" and the Start Type is not Automatic, list the service in ur next post.

FYI....U can also the Recovery technique of the services with services.exe is to Restart the PC.

I finished the ewdio scan, and found some trojans. I'm not sure if they correlate with this or not, but I'm doing the AVG scan now.

I think my dad did install some sort of plug in play game on this computer. I'm not 100% positive but its possible. Could I just uninstall them, if that were the case?

"Plug and Play" is got to do with Hardware. If u stop the service, ur Windows will not detect new hardware immediately.
As u said u found a trojan. This is shaping out to be a malware issue. U should start here. If u need any help regarding the trojan, go to the Malware Removal Forum and start a new topic.
If the problem still persists and u have no malware, then continue this thread.

No Disabled ones too? (which match the same criteria)

U should go the Malware Removal Forum for that.
