I am having a similar issue, running Windows XP Home SP2. although I can't get most of my programs to run in safe mode either. If I have the problem you are describing, could that keep the programs from running in safe mode too?
I also can't get portable programs that are on a USB flash drive to run either. They are not installed on my PC in any way.
Every once in a while I can get a program to run once but then it won't the next time.
I also noticed that services in XP are not starting even though they are set to automatic. If I try to manually start them, I get an error saying that the services couldn't be started because the services didn't respond in a timely fashion.
Do you think I still have the registry issue or possibly something else?
Many thanks for your help.
