Theog.. NO way..!!!

I don't scare off easily when getting help.. to correct something I've done..
I was away downloading the program suggested by Twes.
NOW shows on my desktop/Windows 7
that took awhile to do... to conserve time I ate a bite.. I wanted to be here to get and follow my instructions.
TYVM.

If it was already tried and / or did not work, then reinstalling XP may be your only option.

Ray.. ..Correct... that's all that's been done since I made the mess... yes he had me to keep tapping the F8 key to get to that black screen.
