Did you format your Hard Drive and reinstall XP?

If you are now at this stage, booted to fresh install I suggest you download the sp1a package and start from there.

Once you have downloaded the sp1a I suggest a reboot.
Once booted in, in start (open) type msconfig select services, disable all.(please note there are a couple of services windows won't allow you to disable). Reboot. Then in start (open) msconfig>services then enable cryptographic services and windows installer. Reboot, and after start up install service pack 1a. When it has installed, don't reboot. In start (open) type msconfig, goto services. enable all then reboot. Try that.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
