    Do you have a little box called Lanfiltrator?
    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/backdoor.lanfiltrator.html

    STEP1
    Run a virus scan from http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_frame.asp

    STEP2
    If no virus is found, then do the following:

    1. Run the tool msconfig.exe (winXP)
    2. Goto the Startup tab, and click the Disable All button.
    3. Goto the Services tab, click to check "Hide All Microsoft Services" and
    click the Disable All button.
    4. Click Ok to exit and reboot your machine.

    Check to see if this resolves the problem in Normal Mode. If you can, then the cause is among the disabled startup programs and services. Enable them one by one to find it.

    Did you Enable each item one by one to find out which app/service was causing the issue?
