Most probably a version conflicht of different VC runtime versions. You can de-install them seperately in System -> Software. I would also suggest to install SP3 for XP.

@Anre : Thanks for your posting.I tried your suggestion,still issue is there. – user14847 Feb 23 '13 at 13:47
Did you use standalone or OSGEO4W-setup? You might try the other. Standalone has some issues because "C:\Program Files (x86)" contains blanks. Furthermore, the user name should not contain non-ASCII-characters. – AndreJ Feb 23 '13 at 16:10
I used both setups,But still same problem, please find the error details below, Microsoft visual C++ Runtime Library, Program: C:\OSGeo4w\apps\qgis\bin\qgis.exe This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.Please contact application support team for more information. Thank You. – user14847 Feb 25 '13 at 8:10
