Boot into safe mode (Look for boot options when computer is booting, maybe F8) and if you can get in try a system restore from date prior to issue. If you can't do that / doesn't work we can go down another path.

hpqste08.exe is a process installed alongside HP Imaging devices and provides additional configuration options for these devices.

It appears the imaging software may be damaged.

RUN > MSCONFIG > Select the Startup tab and de-select it from the list, then reboot and then click dialogue box on start-up to not show again .  If you are using HP Imaging devices (cameras, scaners, etc), then you may wish to check for updates from HP or un-install and re-install the software.

If not, remove all associated HP Imaging software

If your printer is turned off, turn it on and reboot XP.

Also check the Event Viewer to see what other messages it's giving in System and Software.
Start->Run, eventvwr.msc [Enter]
