That's a serious DoS attack on yourself. perhaps a portscanner, coupled to some sort of process scanner (loaded with the common windows-based services, especially ones that come bundled) and a simple checkbox list that lists all the services, what they are (in relatively simple english) and allows the user to turn them back on (defaulting to off) ? Just sticking to windows would cover 95% of the potential users (if not more) and make the disk much simpler to write.
