You can try the msconfig/selective startup or, you could try from the boot menu options (safe mode menu) select last known good configuration instead. Sometimes updates get messed up and cause problems like this. To get to the boot options menu, after turning on the computer from a powered off state: start tapping F8 on your keyboard and then use your arrow keys to highlight last known good configuration, then hit enter, with any luck it will boot up normally.

It is really tough to tell you without having a list of all of them. If you can make a list of all the items in both tabs: startup and then services (click the check box to hide microsoft services in the services tab) I may be able to help you. You could also look in control panel > programs and features, check to see what was installed recently.

If you go into device manager, check if there are any yellow ! or ? marks. It could be the hardware failed or a driver has become corrupt etc. The easiest way to get to device manager is to click on your start menu button, then in the search programs and features type device manager and hit enter. This should open the device manager window directly.

Try a restart after taking the above step, the driver should reinstall. If it does not work after this, go back into device manager, uninstall and also delete the driver, then install the original from the disc, reboot and try agian.

Could have been an update for the network card that failed to install. Tough to say for certain. Glad to hear it is back up.
