If you can keep the computer stable long enough and you have a CD/DVD burner slipstream SP2 with your XP CD which will help if you need to do a repair install..

I cannot remember when the errors started so not sure where I should go back into system restore. If I do a Windows XP Repair Installation will I lose my system settings, programs, start menu etc. ?
Some of your settings will be lost doing a repair install. You will need to reinstall some programs and download the updates again. Try a system restore back to when you can remember it being stable.

About running a repair, if the xp cd you have is the one which was installed on the computer (meaning sp2 was downloaded later) you can use it to run a repair installation. During this process you will loose all windows updates, including sp2, and will have to download them again. If the original disk was xp+sp2 you will not be able to run the repair.
Generally speaking I am not too enthusiastic about xp repair because many times you end up with more problems then you started with. I use it only as a last resort.
