Probably, if you cannot instal your OS and your disc is not damaged, you have hard drive errors stopping installation of the OS. I would replace the hard drive. It may have memory issues so I would also google the error code for more information.
My suggestion is to set the 'Start Menu' and 'Notification area' to default settings.
1) Right-click the Start icon and select Properties.
Click Taskbar tab > click 'Customize...' in Motification area' section.
Uncheck 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar' (it looks like you have this on)
Click 'Restore default icon behaviors'
test to see if taht fixes the issue.
If all is OK, Re-check the 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar' if you like and test again.
Boot up with your XP install CD and do a repair.
Go through with intalling XP on the same partition, pass the first repair notification, you will eventually get to another repair choice, this option will restore files and should leave your daa intact.
