Looks like a serious problem

Stop 0xC000021A or STATUS_SYSTEM_PROCESS_TERMINATED - The Stop 0xC000021A message occurs when Windows XP Professional switches into kernel mode and a user-mode subsystem, such as Winlogon or the Client Server Runtime Subsystem (CSRSS), is compromised and security can no longer be guaranteed. Because Windows XP Professional cannot run without Winlogon or CSRSS, this is one of the few situations where the failure of a user-mode service can cause the system to stop responding. You cannot use the kernel debugger in this situation because the error occurred in a user-mode process.

A Stop 0xC000021A message can also occur when the computer is restarted after a system administrator has modified permissions in such a way that the SYSTEM account no longer has adequate permissions to access system files and folders.

According to this, this message means that the security of the administrator account, or permissions on the drive are all screwed up. Since this is the case, it is likely a rebuild.

First BACKUP YOUR DATA -- pull the drive and slave it to another system or use a Linux boot cd to copy the data.
Then try running chkdsk to see if you have hard drive problems.
If so, checkdisk may be able to fix it. If not, you may need to try to recover the OS if you have the XP cd. However,if not, it may be better for a clean install/rebuild.

If you can not boot up at all, then you will have to get another hdd.

Get a new hdd and load on Windows.
Also get a external hdd caddy/case and then put the old drive in that connect it up to your computer through the USB cable and then you will ba able access the data.
Question, why have you not got a backup of your pictures?. :)

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this information is useful, please mark as helpful. Thanks.

I just bought an external drive but didn't get around to moving the pictures yet. I am a novice with computers so it takes me a little more time to figure things out.
