Have you recently tried installing a new program? if a bad installation is the cause download Windows installer clean up facility http://tinyurl.com/5ulzp Also have you tried running System Restore from Safe Mode? Try that first. Keep tapping F8 when booting to get into Safe Mode.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

System Restore is corrupt, only thing you can do with it is turn it off, to clear restore points then turn it back on and it should create a new restore point
