There are generally two main causes for this,
1/ the software is too old to run on XP.
2/ you have spyware on your computer.
Can you see if it will run on another computer, if it does download Spybot S & D and run a scan and delete anything it finds.
If it will not run on another XP machine it is probably too old.
