Boot from the Wincow CD
Ignore the first option for repairing XP. Continue installation. When you are opted to choose the partition to install the XP, it will show the earlier partition with XP in it. You've to press "R" at this point to repair the Windows. It consumes as much time as installing the fresh Xp but does not delete any programs or profiles that you have.

It's better to always backup your Windows. So, when an error come, you can always restore the backup. 20 minute, you get your Windows back.

Insert the Windows XP CD.  Boot the system from the CD.  Just press enter to the first option to load XP, agree to the license agreement, a later screen will come up saying if you have a windows installation that needs repair press R.  This will simply repair your existing Windows installation without affecting any installed software.  

Another way to do this is at the Start / Run on the PC, type SFC / Scannow.  This will run a windows consistency check on your windows files.  It may require you to insert the install disk.  This does take some time to run.
