Are you logging in with the administrator account when you try to start the services.
What happens when you restart the server

anything in the event logs that may give you a heads up as to what maybe the issue.

also if you do net share in the cmd do you see the sysvol shared out.

if the exchange services fail to start a long shot but what size is the edb. I would assume its small and this aint the issue as its a new build but worth asking for others to come in on as if you dont have anything in the event logs to give you a heads up we will struggle here.
Another option would be spyware or viruses but event logs is the 1st port of call but if you say there is nothing in here and nothing has changed I would check the edb / disk space / viruses

Just as the above shows make sure IPV6 is NOT DISABLED as this will cause this issue if its disabled

Ipv6 is not disabled, but I'm having very similar symptoms

I'm convinced this is dns, when I try to access the dns management tool I get access is denied..

what happens if you run
dcdiag
and
netdiag
This should certainly give you lots more errors to follow up on.
