ok. you need to click start. click run. type "MSCONFIG" without the quotes.
goto the services tab. and select everything. this will fix youre problem.
If that does not work you cannot do anything but reinstall windows. please select me as best answer if this helps.
go to run type in services.msc, check that the services you need are running/set to run automatically. if not you can start them manually from that menu.
I'm not sure if you can run sysrecovery in dos, at least I haven't heard of it.
during boot up, hit f8, there should be an option to recover windows, I believe that one uses those sysrestore points.
if not, Tigrsounds has an iso that has a tool you can run from the cd that does a system restore, you'll have to pm him for that link, since I don't have it handy/don't feel like giving it out since it's not mine.
another option would be to just do a repair reinstall of windows

The file is there for the benefit of anyone that needs it. Please do post a link to it as you find those people in need. (Just spell my name right)
If you don't mind downloading a 156MB CD ISO Image file, I have a way for you to perform a system restore, change startup state of services, edit the registry, copy/move/delete files, go on the internet, run some programs that run under XP, and more. It might be helpful to you. Just download the ISO Image file, burn to CD using a program that handles ISO files, boot with that CD and do what needs to be done. It runs completely from CD so takes about 3 minutes to completely load (be patient while it loads).
