Default Command Prompt?

I'd recently been having a few problems with my PC (AGAIN!), so I decided to use my recovery disc try and return the windows files back to default. Once completing this, Windows will not re-open as something (can't remember what as I'm on a different computer) is said to be compressed. I've had this problem before and just used the command prompt in the advanced setup menu to uncompress the problem. Unforunately, that does not seem possible anymore as the option of entering the setup menu isn't appearing. The only option I have is to press control-alt-delete to restart the computer.
What is that I will need to recover my command prompt? Is there some kind of boot CD that I could use?

ALL help will be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks in advance,

Simon

Default

recovery console, runs sfc /scannow
You will need the XP install disk to do this. Boot from disk, go to recovery console from boot options.
