    will it boot in to safe mode. ( F8 on the key board) If so try uninstalling the theme ware and see if this lets it boot into windows.

    It looks like you have a problem. You may need to run a windows repair on your system.

    not good , You will need to see if someone can lend you a windows Xp disk. This way you can run a repair.
