Windows 7: Windows services not responding or starting, please help!

Windows services not responding or starting, please help!

I have a Windows 7 Home premium x64 OS and it has been giving me more and more problems. I've ran virus scan on AVG and Windows security and came up with NOTHING. I've tried msconfig and disabling all non-windows services from starting and still nothing has helped! Windows Live ID Sign in use to start after i had to manually start it (even though it was set for automatic), and now it won't even start at all, giving me the error it didn't respond in a timely fashion. My windows task manager doesn't respond, and my system restore gives me an error saying "A volume shadow copy service component encountered an unexpected error". The problem seemed to start when my web browser would start to not load pages. Then my printer wouldn't work because the "printer spool" service wouldn't start, then of course the hardware and devices in the control panel wouldn't load. After resolving that by manually starting the bluetooth service, the Task Manager stopped working, and the "printer spool" service failed and would not stay started. My start up speed has seemed to have hit a brick wall as well, I've ran start-up repair to no avail. This is my build as copied from newegg.com:

ASUS P6X58-E PRO LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1461-KR GeForce GTX 560
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31
Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb

This computer was quick as can be when I built it, and had had no problem with it whatsoever until now. I can't think of any program that may be messing with it, I've gone through my installed programs and startup programs and nothing to me is out of the ordinary.
I'm not new to computers but this has got me stumped! Any help is appreciated!

ACE,

When you follow this procedure then your system specs will travel with you and make the job for all interested in helping you easier.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) orSIW or System Info

Add the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.
========================================
========================================

Now, unless you have shot yourself in the foot with one of those super-duper speed up your computer programs or listened to some false advice regarding restore points, you actually have a restore point which will we of use to you.

RESTORE TO A PREVIOUS SYSTEM RESTORE POINT
1) WIN | type SYSTEM RESTORE | ENTER | NEXT
|Choose a different restore point radio button
| NEXT


2) Show more restore pointscheckbox (lower left)


3) Highlight the desired restore point


4) Scan for affected programs(lower right)make a note of affected programs
5) CLOSE | NEXT | FINISH


WIN = key with the wavy Microsoft flag on top.
