If the freezing is not related to a failing drive you can copy the data using a live linux disk. Burn the iso of UBCD to a CD and boot. Copy your files using Parted Magic which is displayed on the main menu screen of UBCD. See the below guide.

After copying your data to an external drive you can test the drive using Disk Health on the Parted Magic desktop. Do the short and long generic test.

 

XP should be at SP3. You may want to consider installing a small linux distro after copying the data if the drive checks out okay.

I understand. Sorry for not explaining in more detail. I meant to suggest you should update the computer to SP3 if you are using SP2 as there are many security patches and improvements in SP3.
