    Sounds like something could be corrupted. Just a guess though. When I have had funky problems, I have tried a couple of things, which include a repair/reinstall. Basically, you run your WinXP disc in a repair mode. It should replace only the Windows files, so your settings will remain the same. You will have to re-update your "updates" though.

    Again, just a suggestion.
