Have you tried starting the computer in Safe Mode by continually tapping the F8 key when you power up the computer.

Do you have an XP Pro installation disk.

Do you have access to another computer with a disk burner and an internet connection.

Please provide more information about your computer, this includes is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is branded provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.
