Do you know the bug that you had, it sounds as if it has not completely gone away and may be lurking in System Restore. What anti-virus and anti malware are you running?

You might also want to look at this link it is a bit old but seems to describe your problem.

Repair XP

OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
