Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD.

System File Check will show an on screen blue progress bar, reboot when the bar goes


You may need to click start then all programmes, accessories, command prompt to run it

Thank You for the update

You can repair XP if you cannot get command prompt to work, it is unusual for it not to run from accessories
