<<...most of my services (system restore, internet, things like that) weren't working>>
Repair install of XP, assuming that the problem relates to the O/S and not malware or hardware.
This is probable but because we just moved it is quite difficult to find any small circular disks in this house.
What was the exact message you received when trying to start services?
It varied based on the service, some said that the dependencies required to start this service weren't working and other programs stated that "the plug and play service, or related services were not working"
What services were not running...and how did you tell that?
Administrative tools> services
Not all services need to be restarted.
Have you done a thorough check for possible malware?
Yes, it was originally a hardware problem that you helped solve but this was an apparent side effect of my meddling afterwards
Why are you booting into safe mode?
before moving, i needed to boot into safe mode to get past the windows screen, which would flicker constantly and prevent me from using it (faulty graphics driver), however as per your instructions i resolved that problem by reinstalling the nvidia driver but now the safe mode with networking (and normal startup) aren't loading basic services.
System manufacturer and model?
Model: AN7 (nVidia-nForce2)
CPU: AMD athlon*tm) XP 2800+
