|boot up the computer holding down F8, choose Last Know Configuration. if that doesn't work, go to Safe Mode, and do a system restore.|
Last good config. is the same, and the system restore feature is not working(didnt work before either) so I guess my only choice is reform? Will it save my documents? I think last time it did

You could run msconfig and try stoping startup items and reboot. <I've seen a messed up Anitvirus app cause this>
Or try in task manager killing the explorer.exe thread and rerunning it from the run in task manager after it exits.

go to safe mode, put in the winXP disc, in the run command, type "sfc /scannow".
this checks all the critical system files and restores corrupted files.
