Does this error occur on every startup?
Does it occur when you open up IE?
Does Zone Alarm load up ok?
Please do to this site and perform this scan to see if there are updated drivers available for your computer.
If there are, download and install them.

no it doesnt occur on every start up. its occurance is somewhat random. sometimes it even occurs during the logon screen, before i even click on my user.
it's always before i open any program, IE included.
zone alarm loads fine.
hope this narrows it down.

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Click on the Hardware tab and then Device Manager.
Do you see anything with a yellow exclamation mark next to it?
If not, my suggestion to you would be to start going through your drivers one by one and reinstalling them. Try to think about any changes you made to your computer, either software or hardware, around the time you first started noticing the error. That may point you in the right direction.

I have two more options for you. One is a system restore back to when this issue didn't occur. You will have to check to see if you have a restore point set that would do this. The downside is that this would probably restore any malware that we have already removed. But we can always clean those up again.
The second option is to start a new thread at the XP forum. It doesn't appear at this time that your issue is malware related and the experts over there may be more experienced in handling this kind of issue than I am.
Let me know how you want to proceed. I'll be glad to help you in whatever way I can.
