Good-oh. Be guided by my post; it will be painless and stress-free, with very little risk to your system, and require no actual venturing into registry on your part. It encapsulates all the fixes mentioned by others, and more. I could add that if you have trouble pasting the logs i requested then use the Go Advanced button and attach the two files. No copying, pasting required. See? I try for you... :)
open a command line window and type that command then. put your xp installation disk in the drive and stop the autorun.
If this doesn't fix your problem: There is something on your computer that spyware/virusscan is not catching. if noone has any other ideas, i would recommend backing up any files worth keeping, and doing a clean reinstall.
Caution: While these steps should be safe to perform if followed correctly, you should never edit the registry if you don't feel confident or are unsure of what you are doing.
Important! Close all Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer windows.
Click Start > Run...
Type "regedit.exe" and press OK.
Get to the following location in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows
In the pane on the right-hand side of regedit you should see a String called "AppInit_DLLs"
Take note of any value listed to the right of "AppInit_DLLs" as it may indicate you have malware installed.
Right click on "AppInit_DLLs" and choose Delete.

Hi Tasak and welcome to Daniweb,
You have piggybacked an old thread and I can not help you with the information you have supplied.
Please start a new thread and supply a lot of information about your machine, OS and your problem. What program are you having trouble with? What are you trying to do? What happens when you do it? Have you tried any fixes as yet? and as much other information so that the person here can understand what is happening and try to assist you.
Can you tell us which specific application you are talking about ... and if its windows then what version of windows are you running .. and how long have you been into this problem ..
I use WindowsXP home/prof versions
I've just joined the 'noncopy n paste' group. I've tried everything I know to move my pc to make that function - didn't realize how often I use it until the stinking thing quit doing it! I sure hope to hear from someone soon. Thanks a lot!
