Can you boot into safe-mode, if so try System Restore.
Otherwise try Repair Installtion, refer the following link for more details:

If the above two solutions don't do the trick, refer the following M$ article:

I would suggest that you do a REPAIR installation of Windows. Just put the Windows XP CD in, reboot your computer and when the installation starts up, make sure you select the REPAIR option.

1.) On the first screen that appears that you have to hit the keyboard, hit Enter to 'Set Up Windows XP now'
2.) Hit F8 that you agree with the Terms & Conditions yada yada yada...
2.) On the thrid screen that appears, hit 'R' to 'Repair the selected Windows installation'

This will reinstall all of the files used by Windows but will retain your settings.

*MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR WINDOWS KEY BEFORE DOING THIS*
