Hi, Might be better doing a system restore to a date before you had the problem,Also make sure all the air vents at the back of the computer are free of fluff and dust,Just in case it is over heating.

the best way to fix Windows faulty boot is to insert your Windows XP start up disc. After the utility loads up (the famous blue screen) select the option to repair. Go to the command line and type chkdsk /f or you may let Windows fix the problem automatically--this option is before you get to the command line. If chkdsk /f does not help, try chkdsk /r

Usually when Windows XP cannot load, inserting the start up utility and letting it to fix Windows files only it will leave all other data intact.

Let us know how it goes.
