"i had system restore off"

If you had Restore switched off then no you can not go back as there is nothing saved to go back to.

If it is misbehaving, Start, Run, type in


and click OK. Have your XP CD to hand.

Having had XP collapse completely on a daughter's laptop, please, as bremner says, when all is OK again make sure the system restore tick is there.
