If you have your XP disc, you can use the Repair Windows option. It should not destroy your data.

To get rid of this, you should try starting up in Safemode, which you can get to by repeatedly pressing F8 during startup. From there, you should uninstall your theme program, and see if it works.

If not, download this on a PC, save it to disc, load it onto the problem PC
Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

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

Let's try something...If this option is available, it will restore the machine to it's factory settings. All user data and settings will be lost.
Enter your BIOS setup (tap the F2 key during bootup). Once you are in BIOS, under the "Main" heading, Enable D2D Recovery, save the settings and exit BIOS. Reboot your machine.
Let us know if you are able to do this.

I checked out Microsoft's knowledge base article KB 304449, link is: http://support.micro...kb;en-us;304449
Details how to restore your system to an earlier state using "system restore" from the safe mode command prompt. info as follows:
Start the System Restore tool at a command prompt:
1.Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt.
2,Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.
3.Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
4.Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.
I guarantee this will enable you to restore your system and then delete the offending software manually after your system is up and runnig again.
