I am having the same problem. It started all of a sudden. I am thinking it may have something to do with the Direct X update that I downloaded from microsoft.com

I have re-activated Win XP several times over the last few days & the problem seems to get more & more severe. I'm considering un-installing the update. If I do this, I will post my findings.

I removed the Hotfix for Direct X 9.0 & my problems seemed to have cleared up. I believe if you'll remove that update, you should be good. Good luck!

This is actually a new virus that infects the boot sector. Run a virus scan on your system. A good tool that detects this is the free BitDefender anti-virus program
