Click file then new task, type explorer.exe and press enter
You should then be able to reboot and Windows shuld load the desktop, if not, retrace the above then
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
This is for a blank desktop, which would have the wallpaper and no icons, which is different to it stopping at a black screen

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

Well, seeing as though you are answering all Keith's posts thus far, I have to assume you are on a system that doesn't have a blank screen..
So, common sense would say to "go to the links Keith provided and print out the instructions"..
