I followed the instructions below but when I rebooted I'm still getting the Crypt32.dll error and BSOD.
1.Double-click My Computer, and then right-click the hard disk that you want to check.
2.Click Properties, and then click Tools.
3.Under Error-checking, click Check Now. A dialog box that shows the Check disk options is displayed,
4.Use one of the following procedures:
◦To run Chkdsk in read-only mode, click Start.
◦To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, select the Automatically fix file system errors check box, and then click Start.
◦To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
Am I doing this right to fix the errors on Local Disk (D), the troubled drive?

First see if the other machine boots. If it does then shutdown and power off, put the drive in then boot up. After XP recognizes the new drive and assigns a drive letter you can open a command prompt and enter: chkdsk x: /r (where x": is the letter assigned to the drive.
Or, from My Computer, right click on the new drive and select Properties. Click on the Tools tab then click the Check Now button. On the next screen, check the box that says Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
Let that run to completion, then put it the drive back in the other computer and see if it will boot.
Sorry, you made your 2nd post before I responded.
Use the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors method. See if that makes any difference. If not, move the drive back and copy Crypt32.dll from the working system C:\Windows\system32 to the one that is having the problem then move it back and try booting again.

Would I be getting accurate information by doing it this way, or MUST I switch out the drive to the other computer?

It's time to install Microsoft Forefront and start cleaning up the garbage on the drive.
