Also, download malwarebytes antimalware (its freeware) and scan.
Could also be remote procedure call or half a dozen others.

The important thing to understand is that services are not pick and choose... some of these things have to be running for windows to work right.

Exactly! I stopped counting how many machines I've had to repair because someone decided to go crazy disabling services to "speed up" their OS, but didn't have a clue as to what they were actually doing. I just leave mine at default now. If you have a good enough CPU, and enough memory you don't really need to touch them. Unless you are addressing a specific problem.
