Check your services: Remote access connection manager and telephony services need to be running. If they are, then something needs to be reinstalled or is corrupt.

System file checker: Did you try the System file checker? In a command prompt run 'sfc /scannow'. That should at least find if not fix errors in your system files. It may ask for a source windows cd.
