To quickly check whether all "automatic" Windows services are running, open the Computer Management MMC, click on Services and Applications, then click on Services.

Now click, in this order, the heading "Startup Type" followed by the heading "Status." This will sort the services such that any automatic service that is not running is at the top of the list and is immediately obvious.

Next, scroll to the very bottom of the list and look at Status to make sure there are no "Starting" or "Stopping" entries.

This procedure allows you to check that all appropriate Windows services are running in a matter of a few seconds.
