run chkdsk /f from a command prompt, or use system restore.

Start
Run
sfc/ scannow
Make sure you put the space between the / and the s. It has to be there. Also make sure you have your xp cd in the drive as it will referance it.
What this does is check for altered or damaged or missing system files.

You can do system restore from start > accessories > system tools > system restore.

If that doesnt work then do what seti suggested and run the system file checker, you need your XP CD for it to work, and it will probably take a while.
