I am running SQL 2008 R2 Enterprise on Windows 2003. I cannot see the Sql server and Sql server agent in the configuration manager. I can see it on the Services screen. Any suggestions please?

It can happend due to several reasons.

First check wether your WMI service started or not. Try restarting it. Chech whether it solved your issue.

If not most common issue is a bad installation of the SQL Server or a Service Pack, In that case you will have to reinstall the SQL Server.

Is this a fresh install? Do you have any other versions of SQL Server installed (now or before)?

I have enabled the WMI service. It still does not work.

I have Sql 2005 installed as well.  Sql 2008 R2 is the default instance.

Have you tried both versions of configuration manager, are they both not working?
Start->run->(type) sqlservermanager.msc          --- for Sql Server 2005
Start->run->(type) sqlservermanager10.msc      --- for Sql Server 2008

SQL Server 2008 brings back the following:

SQL Server Integration Services
SQL Server Integration Services 10.0
SQL Server FullTest Search (SQL2005)
SQL Server (SQL2005)
SQL Server Agent (SQL2005)
SQL Server Browser

SQL Server 2005 displays all of the above except the second line - SQL Server Integration Services 10.0

Do you have SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) in services? When did you install SQL 2008, did you apply service pack or update before?

Yes I have Sql Server(MssqlServer) and Sql server agent (mssqlserver) in Services.

I originally had SQL 2000 as the default instance. I removed it and installed SQL 2008 R2 as the default instance. I did not apply and service pack updates. The Services were listed in the Configuration Manager when the instance was installed. It is only recently that I noticed that it does not appear there any longer.

Have you tried to restart WMI:
NET STOP "Windows Management Instrumentation"
NET START "Windows Management Instrumentation"

Have you tried to restart whole machine - if possible?

I think this part of your string is not valid, are you sure it's correctly pasted?:
(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;I

There may be problems when one set some group policies incorrectly. You can find out which policies are applied it may also be problematic - resultant set of policies.
