not able to boot after Windows update

I did a windows xp update and was ask to restart the cpu... I restarted the
cpu successfully. Then
later I rebooted again and the system took a long time at the windows logo
screen and then the error "autochk program not found... skipping" was given.
After this message the cpu
reboots. I tried booting in safe mode and using lask know good config, but
no matter
which one I choose, I end up in the same place... "autochk program not
found... skipping" and then reboot. I tried xp cd repair and it
stalls at 3%. Has anyone had this problem and what did you do to fix? I am
willing to reinstall clean XP but would like to save about 10 files before I
do so? Any suggestions?
