    is it an RPC/DCOm error box that pops up after connecting to the internet? then you may have a virus worm on your PC. I suggest turning on WinXP's built-in firewall before you connect to the internet [preferably with the network cable unplugged]. then after XPs firewall is turned on connect to the internet and make sure you do a windows update. download all the patches deemed critical.. that should help somewhat. once thats done do a virus scan on your PC..

    is that a form of virus? really? I thought its just my graphics card giving me some trouble. But all the updates, patches, and critical updates you were talking about are already installed on my system.

    thanks for the reply

    you may have gotten the worm before you applied the latest patches. I still suggest you do a virus scan ASAP.
