If you are all up to date (Windows updates, drivers, Spyware and Adware scans etc), bootup from your original Windows XP disk and choose 'R' at the prompt. This is the Recovery Console - press 'enter' - you will then be taken to another screen - choose '1'. It will ask you for the Administrators password - just press 'enter'. You will come to the command prompt. Type 'chkdsk /r' and press enter. You will see a lot of activity as Windows checks all your system files - when it finds any that are corrupt - it replaces them with a fresh copy from the CD and repairs them. This procedure is known to fix errors of the type you are currently experiencing.
