Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's
Once this repair has completed, you will have to download all Windows Updates again.

now when i try and boot up,it gets to the win xp screen flashes an error saying something about virtual memory and re starts.

Boot into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key during boot and choosing the Safe Mode option.
If you are able to boot into windows this way, go to Control Panel and double click the System icon. Click on the "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" button in the Performance section. Set the virtual memory to "system managed", "Apply" the change, and click "Ok". See if this eliminates the virtual memory error.

Can you boot into recovery console using your recovery cd? Something has got the file associations totally messed up. I'm thinking we might try to rebuild the registry hive. Replace Hive
How are you about being inside the case of your machine in case we need to disconnect some nonessential hardware?
