Check your hard drive isnt failing eg run chkdsk

Also when did you last update XP?

Go My computer then right click on the drive choose Properties then tools then Error Checking then tick automatically fix file system errors and click start. You will need to reboot for it to start.

Dont have the cure, but are you using sata hard drives as it may have something to do with corruption problems.

Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management, Storage, right-click the Volume, Tools, Options, Check Now button, Select Options, Start.


Or boot with the xp cd and choose the recovery console at the prompt type in

chkdsk C: /p

and hit Return/Enter
