Hey everybody. I'm running Windows XP (pretty sure its home edition) Not sure what exactly happened, but I had restarted my pc and when windows loads (which it now does very slowly) it apparently gets caught in what appears to be a loop. it'll work for about 2 seconds, and then the taskbar and desktop icons will dissappear then come back. it makes it very difficult to do anything at all. Rebooting in safe mode doesn't work either. Please help!

No. I've had it for a while.

Try rebooting in safe mode again. Press F8 during startup and selecting safe mode. If that does not work, then try a repair install of XP otherwise you will have to reinstall.

Ok. After fuming over this for a couple of hours, my dad reminded me that part of my HD was partitioned off to serve as a system restore. I used it for a non-destructive system restore, and so far it seems to have worked. Sorry for having wasted your guys' time.
