I am now currently running on safe mode with networking
When I switch to normal mode and open a program, my computer hangs.
When I open "My Computer"\External HDD (even in safe mode), it says Windows had encountered a problem and needs to close.

Oh, boy. Wait, Explorer.exe closes? Okay... I would suggest a Re-Install of Windows. If you have a lot of music, or photos, just try to put them on a flash drive or something. Then just boot to the XP CD (after you get your stuff) and in the Partition setup, delete the main Partition (Usually C:.) If your computer is recent enough, it might have a recovery partition on it. If it does, highlight it with your keyboard, and hit the corrosponding key for Re-Size Partition, if there is one, and just make it fill up the entire hard drive. If you don't have a recovery partition, just dlete the main Windows one, and create a new one the size of the hard drive. And here's a third option. Get a Ubuntu CD, and install that over Windows. You won't have these STUPID problems.
