My PC keeps rebooting at startup

When my PC boots up, the blue screen of death comes up as soon as my PC establishes a connection to the Internet. It says something about how my CPU was rebooted to "Save my PC from grave danger" and it cites the error "page_fault_in_nonpaged_area" as its reason for rebooting. It has been doing this for about a week now. I am using Windows XP.

I don't get this problem when I take Norton Internet Security out of the startup. My computer boots up just fine, but for some reason programs like: Limewire, AIM, Firefox, MSN, and GMail Notifier don't work when Norton is out of the startup. In the rare instances that I was able to boot up my PC with Norton in the startup, I was able to use those programs.

I would try uninstalling Norton, and re-installing a fresh copy of it.
