If you go to Start\All Programs\Administrative Tools you should find a Services shortcut there. Alternatively, go to Start\Run and type in services.msc

Right clicking a service will give you Start\Stop options, and Properties where you can set the service to start automatically or manually.

The three services in the link, (Event Log, Windows Management Instrumentation, and Remote Procedure Call (RPC)), should be set to start automatically.
