Try going to Run and keying in

sft /scannow (note the space)

You may need to have your XP Pro disk handy. Any missing or corrupted files will be replaced by System File Checker (Windows File Protection).

note when you run scannow /all 'do not miss out the space' you will be asked for your xp cd and will be asked again and again for it. I once counted 95 requests. You get there in the end.
