Default pc wont boot to desktop?

I had a file missing a ntfs.sys so i put in my xp cd and copied it. when i was finished i took the cd out and exited and it rebooted. but i noticed that it had service pack 1 on there now not 2 and it wont go to desktop but instead it keeps asking what mode i want to start windows in. I tried safe mode and normal mode and it still wont go to desktop. can someone plz help me?

How did you loose the file in the first place? Seems to me like you have messed something up beforehand and thats why its running sluggish still.

Yeah, somthing got messed up. personally, i'd back up what you need, and just do a reformat.
