Welcome
With a fix like this it is always best to start with a System Restore point. Neither of us know the true effect that the update will have.

FIX: You receive an "Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion" error message when you stop or pause a managed Windows service

Try starting the service manually with the net start command. So, at the command prompt, type:

net start <service name>

Service names of two words or more must be enclosed in quotation marks. For example, NET START "COMPUTER BROWSER" starts the computer browser service.

I tried that too but got this

Quote:
The service is not responding to the control function.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2186.

Is your Firewall or Anti-virus program, stopping it?

Did you check the Event Logs for errors??

In an elevated Command Prompt type: eventvwr <enter>

I would say, reinstall the app or contact their support staff, this looks like a compatibility or coding problem.

I don't have any antivirus installed.

I did reinstalled it but couldn't fix it. Previous versions were working fine but this one hasn't worked and I can't find the old version.

None of those Services shown in your screenshot need to run in Windows 7 until they are opened. If they are listed in Startup tab then they are permanent freeloaders on your Startup, RAM and CPU.

The only listings in msconfig Startup tab which need to start with Windows 7 are your AV and gadgets or stickynotes. All others are user choice or freeloaders. Startup Programs - Change

Marc's updater is unknown, may be poorly written and unsuitable for Windows 7. If your router is really unable to update DNS, I'd contact tech support to find out why not, how to configure it properly, or replace it.
