It really depends how you want to go with it.
Try this first:
When you enter Windows Advance Options Menu by using F8 key at startup select the option: "Last known Good Configuration".

I would advise scanning the system for malware first - although that will be difficult since it won't boot. You can either boot with the Ultimate Boot CD (free here: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ ) but you'll have to make sure that the anti-virus definitions are updated before burning it. Or, you can slave your hard drive to another system that's got a good antivirus on it and scan it from there.
The downside of both of these issues is that it won't clean your registry of references to malware. Most likely that won't be needed for this type of error - but you just can't be sure.
Beyond that, the repair install of XP is (IMO) the best way to go.
If you've got IE7 installed you'll have some reading and research to do (from this article for starters: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964 )
Once IE7 is removed, then use this link to repair your Windows installation: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
