I'm trying to run bitcoin on a windows XP machine. The gui opens and shuts quickly and then dies. The daemon pretty much does the same.

Debug.log shows the following:

Bitcoin version 0.3.23-beta

Any ideas what I should do?

Sounds like the Bitcoin client you have might be a virus or some kind of malware.  It detected you were on too secure of an operating system and so will not work right.  Redownload maybe.

I got it from - unless that site has been hacked, I'd be surprised if this was the case.

Fixed it with -noirc flag when running - must be that my machine is blocking irc for some reason, not that I've ever run IRC on this thing.
