I'd try running chkdsk /r...and then defragging the system.

Can you access any programs/functions? If so, I'd take a look at Event Viewer.

Try Safe mode (for comparative purposes)?

explorer.exe. is not a valid win32 application

Have a look at this: Not a valid Win32 application.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

How To Run CHKDSK In XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q315265

Just run it from My Computer/Explorer, following the MS instructions provided. Put check marks in the two option boxes which appear.
