Boot into safe mode (F8 when starting)

Type sfc /scannow in runbox

XP will scan and replace missing /corrupt files.
May require XP CD in drive.

This may cure your problem.

Post back on completion.

looks like you have a virus if you can not effect a repair or run an independant virus check you will probably have to re- instal.
If you do have any success in safe mode run a check with this click here
