The error can be the result of a many causes. To name some: Problems with the telephone line, not enough filters installed on the telephone sockets, faulty modem, faulty cables, faulty router, faulty Lan adapter, faulty drivers etc.etc. etc. Since the errors shows only sporadically it may be difficult to pinpoint the source.

To start with: could you give us some details about the setup (e.g dsl or dial-up. Modem-Router, just modem, modem + router, Wired or wireless. network or single. If on network, do other computers show the same problems etc etc etc.

It could help if we knew how the other computers in the house perform. Meanwhile try to repair IE. You will need XP installation CD for that.

Click Start > Search > all files and folders. Click "More Advanced Options" and check everything. In "A Word Or A Pharase in The File" type ie.inf and run the search. Among the found files look for a file named ie in the folder c:\windows\inf. Right-click the file and choose to install. That will repair IE if it's corrupted.

If you don't have XP disk, or if the repair doesn't help, download and install Mozilla's Firefox. It's an excellent, simple to use browser. This will help us to determine if the problem is with IE or somewhere else.
