DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL on XP Home

I have a Dell 8200, when I attempt to logon to the internet with internet explorer, the computer restarts. I get the following info Stop: 0x000000DI(0X0000000C,0X000000002,0X00000001,)xF84051EC  NDIS.SYS F84051EC base at F83E7000, datestamp 3b7dc561. Tested Memory OK, Ran Virus scan OK, with Zonealarm installed I was Able to download all the XP Home updates. Still will not let me brows the internet.

None, nothing has been changed. Same cable modem, which is a COM 21 DP1110, which I went out looking for a XP Driver thinking that might be the problem. Just found one today, but will wait till I get some other advise.
Thanks

Take a look at the following web page,

http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.htm

which is presented using frames.  Click on the error code (0D1) in the left pane of the page, which is a link to the following quotation:

0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
(Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

Ended up reinstalling XP home only, no other software, connected VIA phone moden, internet explorer worked fine. Connected COM21 cable modem, installed drivers for USB and connected to internet explorer, computer restarted. Decided to try NIC connection to cable modem, removed USB drivers and connected to the modem VIA NIC, connected to the internet explorer, everything is working fine now. Not sure if the USB port on the computer or modem was the problem, so I connected the USB printer to the same USB port at the modem was connected, printer works fine. So, I figure the USB port on the modem is the problem, working fine on the NIC connection, so I will live with this. Thanks you your help.
