This is a behavior of a non-activated install. It will only let you run for a certain amount of time and only to activate it.
I think you have something hanging it in that state.

Best option would be to format and re-install.
I would try a system restore point. It should not change activation status.
You could also try booting to the XP install disc and run chkdsk /f from the repair console.
