You may have a virus infection.
Try running a virus scan on your computer.
Next, press the F8 function key as you boot up and then select "Last known Good Configuration" - if this doesn't work
Next, press F8 again as you boot up and then select "Safe Mode"
If you can get the computer running by either of these two methods, go to Control Panel and then to Administrative Tools - Event Viewer and check for error messages to determine the problem.
If nothing works, then I suggest you formating your computer and re-install Windows.

My computer seems to have locked me out as the administrator. I keep getting the message mmc cant open file. what do i do?

This could be the source of the problem, the only thing I can suggest is to boot the computer from your XP disk and see if you can use the repair option to reset your computer. Don't, whatever you do, install again, because if you do you will lose all your data and programmes. Just use the "Repair my installation".
If this option isn't there then turn the computer off and reboot from the hard drive.
Another potential problem is that Microsoft stopped all support for Windows XP on April 8th 2014, and you have therefore received no security updates since then and you will receive none in the future. I would recommend that you look seriously at upgrading to one of the later versions of Windows, which Microsoft are still supporting.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
