Are you trying this in safe mode?
Sometimes the RPC service will refuse to start. Assuming all other services are reset to their default values:
Start, run, CMD
net start (check the service again to be sure it is stopped)
net start rpcss
net start (check again)
if no joy, you need to use the XP CD to go to the Recovery Console.
From the Recovery Console type:
enable RpcSs SYSTEM_AUTO_START
reboot the machine.
"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058" error message when you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service
Some general things to try.
See if System Restore will get you back to a restore point before your problem with Explorer.
Try Safe Mode (Do you have this problem in Safe Mode?).
Try running ChkDsk to check your drive for errors. Right-click your Drive icon/ Properties/ Tools/ Error Checking. Select both boxes.
Run the System File Checker program from the Run Box by typing.....Sfc /Scannow in it and have your XP CD handy.

Sometimes you can get the needed .dll file online, and manually place it on that drive, of course in the correct directory.To do this, you need a functioning computer and you hook up the hard drive with the problem VIA USB. You can get USB Hard drive adapters from most retailers.
You may want to extract all data before you do anything, just in case. Have you been doing backups????
Usually, you reinstall the OS to resolve this issue, but without disks, not so easy to do.
