Maybe the taskbar is set to autohide. Try pointing the cursor near the bottom of the screen to see if it pops up. If it does, right click, select Properties and untick Auto-hide.

Before WinXP starts to load, press the F8 Key a few times and go into SAFE mode... There everything should work fine and you can check all your settings and repair the damage so that you can reboot into a working Windows...
