You can try this fix if you can get into "Safe Mode" by pressing F8 during the start-up:

This problem can occur if one of the following conditions is true:

- The default security provider in Windows XP has changed.
- The system drive letter has changed.

To reset the default security provider in Windows XP, delete the relevant registry keys from the registry . To do this, follow these steps:
1. Start the computer. Press the F8 key during startup to start the computer in safe mode.
2. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

3. Delete the following registry subkeys from the registry:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Providers

4. Exit Registry Editor.
5. Restart the computer.

Good Luck
