When Windows XP boots up, there is a small window C:\Documents and settings .....

Is the small windows the command prompt window???

what exactly is in the window?

Are you getting any errors?

can you boot in safe mode without any issues?

Have you installed any new hardware/drivers/programs/updates recently?

Also try these option here.

you maybe want download and install MalwareBytes Free and run full can in safemode just to be sure it is not malware issue.

Go to msconfig >Services

check on "hide all m s services"

and then see which app is set on your startup
