Sorry 'bout the "space" thingie! It's happened before and I should include a warning about it (and Thanks boopme!).
So, did SFC run correctly and finish? Did you visit Windows Update to ensure that all of your updated files were still updated?
The removal and reinstallation of SP2 is the fix for IE. If it doesn't work, then there's not many alternatives left.
First, just a shot in the dark, but try this free program: http://wiki.djlizard.net/Dial-a-fix
On the version that I'm using (0.54 beta) you have to click on the "More" button to get to the IE stuff.
First, click on "Fix IE". If that doesn't work, then click on all of the Registration entries and have it fix them.
If that doesn't work, then I'd have to suggest a repair install according to the directions here: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
