Windows xp pro boop loop error, whether safe or normal boot

i have a user with a windows xp pro system, and he decided to clean up the system himself by uninstalling a program, when system restarted its in a boot looop.

it gets to the blue windows logo screen with the rolling blue bar, then the blue screen comes up, then it restarts, to the loop.

when i tried starting into safe mode, it got to a certain point [mup.*) and restarted again, its not getting past this point?
i have the windows xp pro cd rom, and a flash drive and a ubcd4win cd handy...?

Guys, thank you.
i ended up doing the 'boot to windows cd rom, and installing and the doing the repair (in the old days this used to be called a 'dirty install' to install over itself and try to keep the data and apps installed intact)
it asked my for the license key, i needed to activate again.
but at least windows is up, the apps are there, and now im doing all windows updates again.
thanks experts
