try starting in safe mode and running system restore from there

You are probably better off starting from scratch. System Restore/ System Restore Settings/ tick the box Turn Off System Restore and reboot (you will lose all past restore points)Turn system restore back on and reboot, it will have created a new restore point. Test it by doing a restore on that point. If it works OK. If not go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space) you will need your XP CD and that should fix it.
