See if you can use Norton Ghost and back up all of your data.

You can even use a CD bootable version of Linux called Knoppix, and access your FAT32 partition from there and back up your files.

After that I suggest you format the hard drive and re install Windows XP, I say XP because pretty soon nothing is going to work with previous versions of Windows.

Are you using the scanreg /restore command?

And it's not that there won't be programs that will not run with previous version of windows. We are not at that point yet. They will be discontinuing Win98se support this summer however. That doesn't mean it won't work.

have you install any software before this error keep come out?

I think maybe it's because of not proper software installation,

try to uninstall the last software before the error happen or any suspacted software you think not run properly
