Try this:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
3. In the Computer Management tree, click Disk Management.
4. Right-click the drive and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
5. Click Change, and change it to the original drive letter. (probably C) Click OK, and then click Close.

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot, it will take an hour but this is about the only check you can do without the XP CD

Possibly, if this is a recent thing, you could start system restore from a command prompt, or from help and support, undo changes to the computer

Check disk will attempt to repair errors, or system restore would put the computer back how it was before this cropped up

You will need to use a same version copy of an XP CD to repair it, you can borrow one for this

Alternative XP Repair Install Method

Use Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, from the list, which uses a slightly different method

Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system

After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update


It could have been anything downloaded with the Limewire I just noticed
