Hi Pete,
found this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314503
this seems to talk about your computer problem. the bit that seems like it will be most useful to you is:-

"Method 2: Repair your Windows installation

Note Repairing your Windows installation may change the configuration of Windows. You may also have to follow this step if you complete all the troubleshooting in steps option 1 and the problem is not resolved.

Use the Windows XP CD-ROM to start your computer. On the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to set up Windows XP.

Press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

Use the ARROW keys to select the Windows XP installation that you want to repair, and then press R.

Windows XP Setup repairs the installation files, Windows XP automatically restarts, and then the Setup program finishes the repair of your Windows XP installation.

Follow the remaining steps to set up Windows.

Note You must have your 25-character product key to complete these steps.

As soon as this issue is resolved, make sure that the firewall is enabled, and then visit the following Microsoft Web site to reinstall the latest updates:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/)

Run a virus scan on the computer because problems with corrupted elements can be attributed to viruses."



Try all that mate, maybe that will help. Goodluck

Kev
