Several Service Control Manager Issues (Event ID's 7000, 7009, 7011)

Starting-up Windows first thing each day is slowly, well, getting slower.  Went into the Event Log and wondering what may need to be done to fix/repair the following Service Control Manager issues:

Event ID 7011: A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the SftService service.

Event ID 7009: A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v4.0.30319_X86 service to connect. (This appears three times)

Event ID 7009: A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the ShellHWDetection service. (This appears three times)

Event ID 7000: The Dell Digital Delivery Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Are some of these related to the fact that I am not connected to the internet when firing-up my PC?



Were there any changes made to the computer prior to the issue?
