Did you try the safe mode in XP?
when you start the pc, start hitting F8 until the pc prompts the safe mode , in the safe mode there are the minimum of drivers available , so you can see what is causing it often an device driver or a graphics card , you have to work around and check what you have recently changed if this doesnt help try installing xp over the existing version , thus repairing bad files.

when this doesn't help there is only one option, format he c:\drive (but make BACKUPS first ..) and start all over again.

Windows is severely corrupted - critical files are missing. Recover your personal files while you still can and reinstall everything from the beginning.
