Diane, it looks like you will have to reinstall XP. It is probably one of the start-up files that got delete. Check this site and this one as well. They will show you how to repair your Windows install. The only real issue here is that you have to have a version of Windows XP system disk. Good Luck to you.

I am a desktop engineer with 10 years experience . . mostly with Dell equipment . . .

Best option is to do a fresh install of windows, complete with all software, and then create an image with Ghost or similar (don't forget to sysprep it)

Imaging in this way takes literally minutes to completely re-install all your software.

As long as you regularly backup your data to an external source, and store your image there also, you will have a solution that is quick and complete in case of future problems.
