    No services on startup, no cp/recovery/update

    All the sudden the other day every time I boot my laptop the audio service is not running, nothing loads in the notification area, and trying to open the network and sharing center/recovery/update/firefox results in a never ending load that I must terminate with the task manager. I have rebooted (including in safe mode) to no avail. I am stumped as to why this happened and how to fix it.

    Sounds like a malware infection to me. One of them disables all services. Try doing a System Restore to before this happened.

    Try pressing Shift+F8 during boot. See Option 3 here: Safe Mode - Start Windows 8 in

    See if System Restore (not recovery) will start from there.
