    possible fix

    Riz,

    I was having the same issues.

    I was able to fix it by removing the windows xp service pack 2. I wasn't able to go through the control panel, but was able to access the list of programs by going to start/run/appwiz.cpl, which brought up the add/remove programs window. The service pack should be towards the bottom of the list.

    While I was uninstalling the service pack I found this thread which could have an easier solution. I didn't try it as my problem was already solved, but I'd try this first before attempting the uninstall. The solution is towards the bottom of the thread.
