I have tried looking for answers but all I am getting is, "Just reinstall all the programs that don't work"

2) Please run full system scans with both your anti virus app and with MalwareBytes.

The usual messages I get are "(insert name here) has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." and says tell microsoft about this problem and asks if I want to send an error report.
My Realtek HD Audio manager has also started coming up with "Invalid data stream" as soon as I log into Windows
Its been suggested that this could be a driver problem but that was only from what I managed to translate from a german post on another forum.

Also, please open device manager - are there any yellow or red symbols?
Last, do you have an XP CD (so we can do a repair install if necessary)?

The file it found has been on my laptop for weeks, not sure why anything else hasn't picked it up.
What shall I do now?

And at this point you can try a repair install, though there's no guaranty it will solve the problem (though if done correctly it shouldn't do any harm):
Boot to the XP CD and choose the SECOND repair option, allowing XP to install on top of itself. After completion you'll need to go to Windows Update and download & install all updates (except for hardware & driver related updates, which should never be downloaded from Windows Update - only from the OEM websites). Here is a clear tutorial on how to perform a repair install: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/138-how-to-repair-windows-xp/

I will try the repair install and let you know how it goes.
