Start ->run ->services.msc

Double-click on the SQLServerAgent service. Check the Startup Type drop-down menu

make sure that SQL service has right login 'administrator account' info - UID\PWD
and start service manually..

also probably you are starting the Sql agent from your PC' EM- and if on your
server ' Remote Procedure Call service' is disabled  it will give you error:
if it is so - login on the server and start the sqlagent..

Start ->run ->services.msc ... chek the properties for the sqlagent.. goto logon tab. Chek the hardware profile. Is it disabled... if yes enable it.

EugeneZ, stop being defensive. It's obvious that I was in no way attacking you. I just posted a comment for ttelesca to attract his/her attention to it. No threat to you was posed. And I do not "make anyone being ignorant"
