You should get the task manager by pressing ctrl + alt + delete keys together, then click file then new task, type explorer.exe then press OK to get the desktop.

Click start then run then type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue progress bar.

See if you have a suitable restore point
