I'm afraid I can't help but I am experiencing the same problem so I will be watching this thread with interest.

Assuming you have the full xp cd then put itin the drive and close the window that opens

Now the System File Checker (this will check and replace any damaged system files) Go start then run and type in cmd then ok.

In the command Promt type in

sfc /scannow

then hit enter/return.
