What antivirus apps do you have installed. Norton by any chance? With Norton GoBack active?

Have you tried switching it off, rebooting then switching it back on? Worth a try.

Try this, turn system restore off and reboot, then turn it back on and reboot once more. WARNING you will lose all previous restore points but it should set a new system check point when it kicks in. If that doesn't work you will have to try a repair, Go to Start/Run and type sfc /scannow (exactly as it is here), hit enter and you will need your XP CD
