I have looked at other articles on this with no success. Maybe if i check to see if any window files are corrupt this may help. Have now tried msn but that has same message. Have done virus check, spyware test and nothing found. As i do not know that much about computers itis a problem.

Since installing xp sp2 have you run Windows update? Also might be an idea to run a reg cleaner.
