I have no idea whether or not this is really an XP problem or what. Sorry for posting twice. Here's the link to the "long" post.

Thanks.

Did both.

The internet connection works fine now.

Before I did the things you suggested, I removed the Windows update that had downloaded and been installed two days earlier, rebooted and the problem was gone. I then did as you suggested and ran some of the other tools as well, particularly the cleanup tool. Gave me back 10+GB of hard drive space. Wow!

Thx.
