After installing and when I start working with windows xp applications, it starts corrupting files until a system file is affected and the system is rebooted.
When it restarts prompts that system files are missing and I need to run chkdsk to repair system errors. After reparing, the cycle starts all over again....

I've installed windows xp three different times and this happened for each of them.

It could also be

a) your system motherboard drivers...did you install them (via, nvidia, sis are the main ones)

b) you have your system set up so write caching is enabled on your drive. Normally, this is not an issue, but in some instances it can lead to your issue. Do disable, go to device manager, choose your drive, and under POLICES tab, uncheck that option
