1: Try a system restore

2: Run Chkdsk

If Johnw's suggestion doesn't work, I've found Last Known Good Configuration to work many times.

Restart the PC, right before you see the Windows XP logo, rapidly press F8 until you see the startup menu. Then select "Last Known Good Configuration". Let us know if this worked.
