Can you log into windows normally?
If not, you may need to install windows from the beggining.
In case that windows work fine & the problem is just with system files, you can follow these steps:
1- From Start Menu choose "Run"
2- Type: SFC /SCANNOW
3- Press Enter & insert the windows XP cd when asked, then click continue or restart as the window tells you.
This should help you repair almost every problem in th systm folder.
Hope it works.
