Trying to fix a slate of messy problems that all hit at once.
I realize the range of problems is broad but I hope someone recognizes the symptoms and can help. Possible rootkit, virus, or Windows corruption.

Win XP Service pack 3
Dell 530s, 1.60mhz Pentium dual, 1gb ram.
Avira AntiVir

In normal mode -

No browser will open; not IE8, Firefox 3, or Opera10. No error; just never opens.
Windows Firewall will not start.
Runtime error issued by "NT Authority\System" then shuts down in 60 secs.
+Avira AntiVir Guard service ok, runs ok.+

In Safe mode -

Avira Antivir Guard service stopped, will not re-start.
Windows Firewall will not start.
+ Browsers will open.+

Anti-virus/malware scans:
Avira = 1 Warning; Unable to scan Dc125.exe "Insufficient memory."
SuperantiSpyWare = Finds two cookies; ad.wsod[2].txt, media6degrees[1].txt
Malwarebytes = nothing found.

Actions taken:
Tried repair Windows installation through 'sfc /scannow; quit half way through and will not restart.
I stopped unnecessary services through Startup.
Tried re-installing Java and Adobe Reader with no success.
Defogger successfully run.
Backed up files.
I can kill the Runtime error in normal mode using 'shutdown -a' but it returns when I re-boot.

Thank you for your time.
