Please find the file boot.ibi, which should be in the root of the boot drive. It is normally a hidden file, See HERE for how to show hidden files.
Having found it, open it in notepad ( it's a text file) and post the contents here.

If the recovery console is installed, then booting to it, and entering the command bootcfg /rebuild will do it.
If the recovery console is not installed, ( not installed by default), then have a look http://sft-cyber.com/Bootini.htm]here[/url] for a complete how-to. It explains it better than I can!
Or, you can use this:-
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional"/fastdetect
Copy/paste the bold text into notepad. If you are running win XP home edition, the Professional must be replaced with Home Edition . Capitals are important, and so are the quotes.
Save it as boot.ini, and see if that cures the error message.

This worm is in your system restore files.
To remove it, you must disable system restore, and reboot.
That purges all the old restore points, and the files stored in system volume information blah blah.
Then you can reenable system restoren and set a clean restore point.
A detailed "how to" can be found here
