Is the message "asc.sys is corrupted" appearing during the use of the Windows XP Repair on the CD? If so you may want to clean the disc fully, I suggest toothpaste with water and a soft tshirt, does a great job. If you continue to have problems with the cd, try a different cd drive.

Alittle information about ASC.sys:
It is made from Advanced System Products. The file is a SCSI controller driver, you should be able to disable this service.

Some malware will manifest itself as asc.sys in the system32 folder causing it to become corrupted and give you errors.

If the above does not work try this. Being that it is possible that this is malware, you may want to run a full system scan for malware and viruses. Try using legit programs such as Trend Micro anti-virus and Spybot search and destroy. A couple good free antivirus would be AVG antivirus or AVAST.

You should attempt to use those in safe mode if possible, some may not allow it. If it does not and you have no access to normal mode, than you may have to use a second computer to scan your HDD.

If you have any questions I will be more than willing to answer with my best of knowledge.
