I recently upgraded a computer to Windows XP Service Pack 3.  It's been running fine until today when suddenly nothing would work. I looked in the services.msc and almost everything was set to disabled.  I checked msconfig and everything was set to run in normal mode.  I went through and set everything back to automatic.  Any idea what might have happened?

Besides SP3 the only other changes were to remove AOL 9.0.
