One suggestion is if the DHCP server setting is on automatic change it to manual.
Control Panel,Admin Tools,Services, right click DHCP Client, properties, change startup type to manual.

I did a disk check and it found 7 bad sectors

Today it didn't hang, but now has problem with
Services and Control Application failing when desktop generates 1st time

Also then have continuing failure of wuauclt.exe

Try the disk check again. If it's got bad sectors again, then I'd start to wonder about the hard drive.
You can find hard drive diagnostics for the most common drives in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
