Microsoft released some updates that may have affected your machine - especiall the one for "generic host process for win 32" now when this starts up and has an error it shuts down alot of services that are running such as timesrv32 and DHCP i would suggest starting your computer and then goto run type in "services.msc" and fint the one called "dhcp" and see if its running if its not then you will never automatically aquire an IP address

If this is the case then i would suggest going to and search for a hot fix for "generic host process for win32" and apply an update
