Bsod on bootup

By nonreflexabilit

  1. The boot up gets as far as the windows logo with that bar underneath, then BSOD.
    XP was working fine, I updated to service pack 3 today. UXtheme was removed. To replace i went to

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/SP3-UxTheme-Patcher.shtml

    It gave the message that it was a patcher for sp2/sp3, if not it would mess up my system. I checked properties on my computer and it stated that it was now Service Pack 3. It required restart for changes, i initiated and now it BSODs where I mentioned above. I obviously must have f***ed up but i dont know where.
    Message reads.

    STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
    The WIndows Logon PRocess system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
    The system has been shut down.

    STOP message sticky supplied little info for this particular status. What can i do short of re-installing os?
