    I'm having the exact same problem on a fairly new gateway laptop. I'd really appreciate some help.

    Try the System File Checker first. Click Start-Run and type SFC /SCANNOW

    It will probably ask you to put in your XP CD, so keep it handy.

    Have a look at this thread and it should provide more than enough information on how to help fix that.
