Windows Services not restarting on reboot.

Specs: Windows Server 2003
I have been having some problems recently with some windows services. I am running a Windows Server 2003 machine and I have noticed that after restarting the server, which doesn't happen that often, some of the services do not restart. The one common theme between these services is that they all need the network Admin and password to run. It appears that the password is lost during the restart because I am able to manually restart them, but I need to re-enter the password.
What could be causing this?

not normal to be running services under the admin account. Usually they run under system.

Usually if wanting to run a service under a admin account you make the admin account, set it to logon as a service and set the password to never expire.

Due to certain pieces of software I am forced to use this method for the services. The services in question are set to logon as admin, and the password does not automatically expire, although there is a set time period before the password gets manually changed.

re- review the suggested proper account setup for these services
