It is part of SP2 so removing that will do it, though whether it will work without SP2 is something you will have to find out

If you run repair install it will remove SP2 which has movie maker, it will also check all the files are in place

You can use these to repair XP

XP Repair Install

Or here if you are unable to run XP Repair Install

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

Borrow an XP CD to run the repair

It must be the same version of XP as you have installed

Click start then right click my computer, click properties, it is either XP Home or XP Pro and you will need an SP1 disc

You can uninstall SP2 but it usually causes a lot of programmes to no longer run, so you would end up re-installing all those as well

If you cannot find a CD then uninstall SP2

Long term, getting an XP CD would be beneficial
