XP Automatic services not starting.   I have a couple users who had updates just installed and now when they startup the PC many automatic services do not start such as dhcp client and computer browser.  Any ideas?

These may be failing to start beacuse they are dependant on ther services that have failed to start. Clear the System Event Log and then reboo, then check the system log for errors.
