When I start my computer it shows the WinXp is loading. Then it brings me to the windows advanced options menu. I selected every option without any luck. It was working fine last night. I didn't get any error messages or installed anything that I can remeber. What can I do its very frushtrating and I need files on the computer badly. Thanks in advanced to all that can help!]

Safe mode doesn't work either?
If safe mode doesn't work you can try a reinstall over the top of the existing install to get your files. I would then run some disk utilities and make sure the drive is ok. After that backup your needed stuff and do a clean install of xp.

Try a Windows repair with the CD.
May be due to spyware and other nasties.
