Do you know exactly when this problem began? (what date)

If you do - go to safe mode and choose safe mode with command prompt.

Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:


Follow the directions on screen and choose a date that predeeds the onset of the problem.

Since you do not want to do a re-installation of Windows do you have the Windows Install or recovery disk for the computer? If you do then there is a repair-install procedure that is non-destructive that should work but I suggest to backup all of your data to another media like CD-R's or DVD first.

How to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install = http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

This may be your only option for repairing this computer with out a full re-install and I would suggest printing the article for reference.
