erm yeah, this hapened to 2 of my PC's about a year ago.There are 3 possible ways to fix the problem: Try installing your OS again,if that doesnt work: Get a new hard drive and try again,when hard drives corrupt it's almost impossible to get them back again. The 3rd option is to buy a new PC,but thats a bit drastic at this early stage but i had to do it as there was no other way, i hope the same thins doesnt happen for you.

1) stop going on porn 2) stop downloading illegal files 3) take your PC to PC World. They'll sort it out.
No, No and No
Just reliased that i might be using the wrong XP disk, I might be using prefessional instead of home so i'm going to try and aquire a copy of home and try that, if that doesn't work i'm not really sure what to do.

It has happen to my pc in few weeks ago, I end up go to PC World, because I won't take my own risk to go further on my pc and it could end up f*ck up. So PC World have special thing to sort it out. It cost me £29.99, But its better than put my pc in more risk.

Happened to mine and I ended up having to buy a new one. If you can actually get to your desktop on safe mode try doing a system restore. It let me do that about 5 times until it buggered up completely. So if you can do that my advice would be to back everything important up ASAP before the computer just dies, then you can either get a new hard drive (if the hard drive is the issue, but in my case I believe the CPU became faulty) or a new computer.

Cheers for the help guys
I managed to boot the XP disk by removing my 2 hardrives and once it loaded i put them back in. In the end i managed to get onto my desktop and run a virus scanner and it found the kernel32 virus and deleted it so that hopefully should be that.
