That doesn't look right since it doesn't look like you are in the right area.
According to the pic you are at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
You need to click SOFTWARE
Then Microsoft
Then Windows
Then CurrentVersion and finally Setup
Then check the key

How is system running now since running the chkdsk /r and now the sfc /scannow?
Has the freezing problem lessened or about the same?

I take it being a Emachines you don't have a XP installation disk then?
I believe the next step is to perform a repair installation but I know Emachines usually has a recovery partition instead of shipping a actual Installation disk.

OK that may be a problem as most of the time a restore cd does not allow for a repair installation. Usually it will only format and reinstall everything as it was brand new.
