gangstapaki,

If something is corrupted , check this

How to Recover from a Corrupted Registry That Prevents Windows XP from Starting
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;307545 

If programs donot work , then you would have to install them again

If nothing works out , reinstall XP or use Restore CD that you must have got with your computer
