If all your services were disabled and you didn't do it on purpose, or find and fix the real problem (just turning them all back on is probably not a fix) you should be suspicious.

There are many possibilities for your System Restore problem, but first you should be sure to check your system for malicious software. Malicious software may keep you from doing things that would let you detect and fix it, like System Restore.

Download, install, update and do a full scan with these three free malware detection programs:

Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/
AVG (AVG): http://free.avg.com/
