Autocheck error boot loop

  1. First of all i want to say hello to all on the forums.

    So i have a very intresting problem. I have been a dedicated PC user for years, recently i bought a macbook pro for design work. Instlaling Bootcamp and puting good 'ol windows xp pro on it. It ran great for awhile. Then after a shutdown I received Autocheck.exe not found, and i however cannot get into windows so i am stuck on a boot loop. And i cannot access the mac side to remove xp with bootcamp because i was on the windows side when the boot loop error occured. So what suggestions can be offered on how to resolve this, one time and once only i was ablt to boot safe mode but the same thing happened, Windows loads to a login screen when u click the user login it loads a blank windows xp screen (no start, taskbar,icons) then logs back to the Welcome login screen. (I am not sure how to try to copy autocheck file form windows install disk since im on a mac laptop.)

    So just spitball me ideas and ill see what works.

    There is a Cd called Techtool Pro that will boot from CD (hold the <C> key)

    It can then fix several serious issues
