There are circumstances where safe mode will not be able to help you, such as when Windows system files that are required to start the system are corrupted or damaged.

I THINK THIS APPLIES HERE YES I DID ALL THAT AND ITS MORE SERIOUS SOME CRUCIAL FUNCTIONS WERE DISABLED AND SAFE MODE ISNT WORKING

If you can't boot to safe mode there are only two ways left to try.

One is a barts cd and use system restore point to time when it worked maybe or edit msconfig from live cd.

Otherwise a reload would be needed.

Have you any idea what you disabled?

I think the chances of getting into msconfig are slim.

ERD Commander, as you say, is a possibility.

Otherwise I think you're only way forward is a Repair Install from an XP CD.
You will need the appropriate key.

TURN OFF YOUR CAPS LOCK KEY !!!! @#$*!#$

Sounds more like a virus or a bad hard drive.

Boot with a windows CD and load the Recovery Console and use the two commands: listsvc and enable

Dunno but disabling DCOM service shouldn't prevent Windows booting. Just for info, services are better disabled elsewhere. Maybe your problems were nothing to do with what you did in msconfig but just came along straight afterwards.

Msconfig is welded into Windows so you can't get at one without the other. Your best chances are booting with the XP CD then going from there, as has already been suggested. You seem to be seeking a solution which fits with your own ideas but computers don't always work that way ;)
