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

You can borrow the same version disc to do this, as you are only replacing system files

Have you tried changing the theme back to XP Style instead of classic in display properties? If you have and it didn't work or XP Style doesn't show, then go here and download resources.zip

Make sure you when extract it, the destination is c:\Windows.
(where c: is the partition where XP is installed).
Go to Display Properties and XP stlye will be back.
