Hi, my guess would be a corrupt windows file. Usually running a check disk can take care of this problem, otherwise it may be that you'll need to reinstall windows (hopefully not).

If you have the Windows XP cd that came with the computer then you should be able to boot to it while turning on the computer (either by changing the boot order in the BIOS or by doing a one time boot selection).

Once you have loaded up the CD it should give you the option to install windows or launch recovery console. You will want to launch the recovery console and when it gives you a DOS prompt (Looking similar to "C:/") you want to type "chkdsk /r". That will run check disk and test your core windows files for any corruption.

If you don't have the CD an option would be to use a different computer with working internet access and CD burner to download the Windows Recovery Console CD for your version of windows and make a copy of it to use in the computer.

Hopefully that works for you :)
