I will leave this thread open, in case you have any further problems after reinstalling windows.
A simple re installation of Windows will not necessarily remove all the bad files.

If however you are formatting & reinstalling, please PM me so I can close the thread.

Did you go through the process described here? http://www.techspot....504190-367.html
If not you will need to do so, but hold off & do the following first:

Try booting up your machine with the XP CD in the drive, and booting off of that CD.
Type R to go to the recovery console.
When prompted, type the Administrator password. (most likely blank, so just hit the Enter key)
When you get to the recovery console follow these instructions.

* Type cd\ then Enter
* Then cd system~1\_resto~1 then Enter
* Type dir then Enter.

When you hit enter it will list all the restore points folders like rp1, rp2 …….. If the restore points have more than one page then u have to keep on hitting the <Enter> key to view the last restore point folder.

Please reply to tell me if there are any restore point folders.
I have a nasty suspicion that the re installation of Windows may have wiped them out
