W2K Internet connection error

I have a computer that is not allowing a continual connection to the internet. The computer dials up correctly, registers, an goes to the homepage (msn) correctly. However, it eventually errors out, and while it does not actually disconnect the dial up connection it makes working on the internet impossible(internet freeze).

The error occurs at various activites, for example- As you are clicking on an icon,  seaching thru a search engine, opening a page.

The errror also occurs at various times. Sometimes it is when the homepage is loading, sometimes when I open hotmail, and sometimes when I have been on the intenet for 15-20 minutes it occurs then.

I ran norton and it came back with no virus.

The error looks like a bunch of black boxes that cascade down my screen(looks like 8-10 small windows). This error displays itself in about 1 second. I was able to capture 1 of the black windows on a print screen funtion. The window's name/location is
C:\WINNT\system32\cmd.exe

Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

Sounds like a virus to me!  Sometimes your local scanner won't detect it...

Check these links for online virus scanners.  It's recommended to run at least two of these.  
  Norton/Symantec --> http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/default.asp?productid=symhome&langid=ie&venid=sym
  Trend Micro -->     http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
  Panda ActiveScan--> http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
  McAfee Security --> http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp
