Reading about the System Event Notification Service problem and also because of the fact your internet crashed resetting TPC/IP and Winsock may help. Type CMD in the search box. Right click and Run As Administrator. At the prompt type the following commands. Reboot and see if that solves the problem.
netsh winsock reset netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

It should not take that long to boot up. Did this just start after inputting the commands I posted or has the computer had problems before this. Have you tried doing a System Restore in safe mode to a time before the problem occured?
Edit: Sorry, you stated in your first post you did a System Restore. If possible, I would do another System Restore to the same point as you did before. Once this is done, post back.

Are you booting with the external drive attached? If you are detach the drive. What is the make and model of this computer? Do you need any important data on the computer and is it an option for you to do a factory reset where any program installed after purchase would have to be installed again.
If the factory reset is not possible, do you have a Windows 7 System Repair disk?. The disk can be created on any computer with Windows 7. Using the repair disk you can do a system restore without booting to windows.

Can you do a System Restore in Admin?
Hard drives today are not built like they once were. There is always the chance of failure. There are basically only three drive manufacturers today, Seagate, WD, and Toshiba. I do know the portable WD drives can be problematic because the USB port is soldered to the bridge card and uses a proprietary interface that encrypts data. If the little USB port breaks on the drive, you are out of luck. I also know the WD passport drives install software and create a virtual CD drive. If portability is not an issue, I would go for the larger 3.5 drives. You can purchase the drive and external enclosure separately. If you need a portable drive, I would look at the Seagate. The most important thing to remember is for any very important data you do not want to lose always have it in two locations with one offsite. You can always use cloud storage like Google Drive, SkyDrive, Dropbox, or Mega. I have not used Mega but it will give you 50GB of storage for free. Carbonite will give you unlimited storage for $60 a year.
One other thing I would do would be to install Macrium Free and do a disk image to your external media. Create a WinPE recovery disk also. This will let you boot and recover your disk in case it does not boot because of Malware or a deftective drive. You would do this on a regular basis. If the drive fails, you would boot the recovery disk, and restore the image fromt the external drive to the new drive. You would be done in minutes compared to hours if you needed to reinstall the OS and all of your programs.

I don't think that will diagnose your Windows 7. You said you can log into the admin account. Are you able to run your programs from admin? Or does it crash when you start a program.
Edit: You can only log into admin in safemode?
