These system failure errors are usually isolated and occur randomly. As such, the best way for the operating system to deal with them is to automatically restart.
However, you can disable the automatic restart behavior. Follow these steps:
Go to Start/Control Panel/System/Advanced/Startup&Recovery(Settings).
In the System Failure section, De-Select the Automatically Restart check box, and click OK.
To enable the changes, click OK in the System Properties dialog box.
This change configures the system to halt after encountering a system failure error, which allows you to investigate the problem error in more detail. You will then have to manually restart the system.
Now when the Operating System encounters a problem that would have caused it to reboot, it will instead display a BSOD (the dreaded - Blue Screen of Death) This is useful because you will be able to read the actual Error Message that details the Error that was encountered.
After you have completed the above routine, reboot your machine.
If you encounter the Error that has been causing the repeated rebooting, your machine will stop and display a BSOD with details of the Error encountered.
Please write down the Error message (carefully copy the exact message) or take a Screen Shot if you are able.
Post the exact Error Message or post the Screen Shot of the message.
Quite often, the Error Message will relate to a Hardware problem.
The problem may be a faulty Hardware.
The problem may be a faulty Hardware Driver.
You may be able to fix a faulty Hardware Driver via Device Manager - Remove (Driver) -
Then Reboot and allow Windows to "Find New Hardware" and "Install Driver for new Hardware)
You can try:
Install DirectX 9.0c
Reinstall Chipset Drivers (from your motherboard's manufacturer's Website)
Trouble-Shoot Driver problems via Device Manager
If the owner/operator is having unexplained problems with drivers in Device Manager and less radical uninstall-re-install of specific drivers doesn't help, then try a full reformat/reinstall again using the above "order of actions".
Format Hard Drive (or if you have Partitions, Format only C:\)
install Operating System
(if XP) install DirectX 9.0c
Install Motherboard Chipset Drivers
Install other PCI drivers (NIC,Modem, Sound)
Install Peripheral Drivers (scanner, printer, enhanced keyboard)
Install Security Baseline utilities (antivirus, antispyware, firewall)
Install Application software (MS Office, games, image viewers/editors, etc.)

Now that you can boot into Normal Mode reliably (even though you're getting the nwiz.exe -- shell32.dll error) you can attempt to repair SHELL32.Dll by using System File Checker with you XP installation CD inserted (but not running) in your CD-ROM.
Start - Run - (type)sfc /scannow <---- please note the space between "c" and "/"
If the above procedure does not correct the problem, you may have an "incomplete SP2 upgrade".
Let us know if "Windows XP SP2" appears in Control Panel - Add/Remove (**do not take any action in Add/Remove**, just report back whether Windows XP SP2 appears in Add/Remove)
Since your most recent installation of XP Pro, have you gone to Microsoft Updates to download/install the updated critical updates and patches? Doing so may also fix the above problem. Go to Microsoft Updates and Select "Express" update
Download and install DirectX 9.0c from this Microsoft site:
Here's how to Identify your ASUS Chipset Drivers:
Your Product is MotherBoard
Your Socket is 478
Your Model is P4S333FX
Or just use the [Auto-Detect] button on that website (safer)
"This function will auto direct you to Driver's download page."
When you download the Drivers..........
Select for Windows XP
Download and install the drivers for: P4S333-FX
AUDIO <--- yes, download and install
BIOS *** <--- Leave this one alone! Do not download or install
BIOS-Utilities *** <--- Leave this one alone! Do not download or install
IDE <--- yes, download and install
LAN <--- yes, download and install
Manual <--- Download at your option if you want to do some reading
VGA <--- yes, download and install
Footnote/possible "solution" for nwiz.exe related problem.
nwiz.exe is a highly "optional" utility designed to assist the owner/user who has Multiple Monitors (up to 128 Monitors) You are probably only using One Monitor?
This problem "may" go away if you simply "disable" nwiz.exe in your MSCONFIG - StartUp(tab)
It may help to Uninstall and then Install the latest nVidia Video Card Driver for your NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE
Download and Save to a New Folder on your Hard Drive (make it an easy location that you can find later)
Uninstall the Current Driver via Add/Remove
Then install the new Video Driver from your downloaded/Saved nVidia Driver
It would still probably be best to "disable" nwiz.exe from MSCONFIG - StartUp(tab) even after updating the Video Driver.
