Best thing I can suggest, do a fresh install of Windows XP. If you have a boot disk, I would suggest going into fdisk and wiping out the paritions and then creating one primary partition. After that then reboot with the boot disk and then format the drive using the command "format c: /u/c" without the quotes. After the format is done then reboot with the windows xp cd and install windows xp. It'll be a fresh copy at this point. Lots of times when doing an upgrade or downgrade some files get corrupted and weird things can happen. Do it this way and let me know what happens.

You may have a problem with your IP and DNS settings. Please use the instructions below

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).Click Properties. You will see a window like the one below. Please make sure that the settings are all set to automatic for your IP4 and/or IP6 connections.

If that doesn't work, please try to renew your ip settings.

This can be done with the following steps:
1. Open cmd.exe
Windows XP: Start - Run - cmd.exe
Vista/7: Window Button - type "cmd.exe" - Enter
2. Type "ipconfig/release"
3. Type "ipconfig/renew"
4. Wait for connection to establish.
