I keep getting the following popup bubble on the taskbar after logging on to my computer:

Windows System Error - Duplicate Name Exists on Network


Some background, I just had to replace my old hard drive. After formatting the new one and loading up Windows XP and IE, I am now receiving these messages.

Any way of stopping this message from appearing?

No. I did use the same name as my windows logon when I set up my new hard drive on my laptop. I am also using a wireless router. Not sure if that info helps or not.
