From 44 guy: Thank you Louis and Promethius. Wonder of wonders, the computer is working okay now. What I did was change the startup to Normal. I had previously changed via system utility a startup item. Never affected anything before and it was a while ago.

Thank you Louis, I recognize now that msconifg.exe is only for diagnostics.
My guess is that it was your use of Msconfig to attempt to control startups...if that's the only thing that has changed.
Msconfig.exe was never intended to be startup manager, it's a troubleshooting tool, see 3d sentence, paragraph 1 at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310560 .
If you want to use a startup manager, there are various programs that execute that function better than any erroneous use of the msconfig.exe command in XP.
You can gather data on such by using Google and typing "startup manager" in the query spot. Each program is a bit different and it's easier to find the one that suits you best...by trying several, IMO.

It's best to avoid using any kind of registry cleaner. They usually cause more trouble than they are worth. RegCure in particular has a less than stellar reputation.....I'd take it off my PC as fast as I could......Google RegCure scam for more info.
Download Speedfan and make sure you are not running too hot.
