You can download/install BlueScreenView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.
Double-click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report to your hard drive as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

What Antivirus do you use - Do you have any AntiMalware programs like Malwarebytes or SUPERAntiSpyware installed -
Is your "crash" a blue screen / black screen or just a computer shutdown or freeze - Do you get any error messages when this occurs -
And any other relevent information you can post back -
Thank You -

Does chkdsk come up clean?
Take a look at the log book. You can find it it in the control panel under administration tools. See if theres any warnings or errors around the time of the crashes.
How old is the computer? do you maintain it properly (clean the insides regularly and so on). Im thinking something may be broken, but it seems like you should get a bsod if that is the case...
chkdsk would only run if theres something with the HDD i think...

I agree with Surma...chkdsk running at boot, combined with what you call "crashes"...isn't a good sign.
A reboot...is not necessarily what some of us would call a "crash"...the fact that you can actually boot into XP at all is a good thing.
I would do two things:
a. Disable Automatic Restarts When Windows Crashes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/
b. Download and run the appropriate diagnostic from the website of your hard drive manufacturer. If a short test and a long test are offered, run the long test.

Hard Drive Installation and Diagnostic Tools - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
You may want to try to move any valued data files from that drive...before running the diagnostic.

I scanned my computer with rustbfix which you told but it showed no rootkit found.
This one seemed a bit similar, reboots and a bit slowed down. Apparently in that case it was caused by some rootkit. This tool was posted there:
Download from either location.
Some sort of specialised tool for that particular rootkit. It will scan the comp for the rootkit and try to repair.

I am very sorry for that. I must have done it in my very first post. Here are my system specs:
Can you please post your system specs, because I couldnt see any posts that you have. By system specs I mean the following: CPU, RAM, Motherboard, Hard Drive, CD-ROM, Video Card, and power supply.
You can get some of the above by going here: http://www.piriform.com/speccy/download and posting either a screenshot, or by typing it out.

Well, do you mean a photo of my CPU hardware? If so then I would have to say sorry that I couldn't do that. If there is some software suggestion which may scan my pc for errors, then it would be better. I just can upload some logs files or something else(may be).
For starters, I would upgrade to SP3, and make sure your chipset drivers are updated. Can you provide a picture of the insides of your computer?
