I can Understand your situation.when this happens it means your system restore files have become damaged. This could be because you don't defragment your computer regularly, you have a virus or malware or your hard drive has just aged a little.
You can either repair or reinstall windows. Windows System Restore isn't actually that good in XP as the problem is still there, just the system restore masks it.
To reinstall please visit www.lopezwebz.com for a guide.
You may want to "repair" windows...
Basically it pretends to reinstall Windows by replacing all the broken Windows files... it will NOT erase your drivers, software thats installed or any documents so is 100% safe.

Place the recovery disk that came with the eMachines computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
Click "Next" when the operating system restoration screen appears. Click "Repair Your Computer" and then select "Next."
Locate your eMachine's current operating system in the list
of available operating systems, such as "Windows Vista." Click the
appropriate choice and then choose "Next."
Select "Load Drivers" and wait for the drivers to finish installing. Select "System Restore" and then click "Next."
Scroll down through the list of available restore points.
Select the first restore point if you want to completely revert the
computer to factory settings. Select a later restore point if you just
want to roll back any changes to your computer to an earlier date.
Click "Next" and then select "Finish." Click "Yes" and then choose "Restart" to restore the eMachines computer.
You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.
If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.
Go into the BIOS (watch your POST screen as you turn the computer on for instructions if you don't know how to get in there, it will say something like "press F2 to enter setup") and set your computer to boot from your CD drive. Put your restore or XP disk in the CD drive and reboot.
Turn off the Computer Turn back on and Press F11 repeatedly when the message "Press F11 to start recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:
Full System Restore (with Backup): This options will move all Hard Disk
contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of
Windows. This option preserves your existing data files, however all
applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option
requires 4GB of free Hard Disk space for the new OS.
Alway suggest backing up your data before you do any recovery
