All outbound traffic blocked and reboot upon DHCP renew

Here's the problem:
    Running XP, my system is blocking all outbound & inbound traffic periodically.  Also, periodically when DHCP renews, I get a blue screen indicating a Linksys Wirless services is causing the problem.  Only problem is that I'm not running a Linksys router, and I stopped the service and reboot continues.  I've rolled back twice trying to save my system without reloading.  The problem is fixed, but only comes back later.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  

Thanks,
filly

>>and I stopped the service and reboot continues
did you disable the service
start -->run type
services.msc
also disable the zero wireless config service (if not using wireless)

nope, just wanted to get your attention.  Someone told me that I might have some background service from a previous firewall prog blocking traffic.  Don't know, I tried unistalling my firewall again last night and SP2, nothing worked, if you haven't got anymore suggestions, I think I'm gonna just backup and start over.

remove za
uninstall and then check
Manually remove the following left-over log and report files which contain the previous used information of ZA and it affected the next clean reinstallation of ZA:-

C:\Windows\Internet log\ZALog.txt

C:\Windows\System\ZoneLabs\VSMON.RPT

C:\Windows\APPLOG\VSMON.LGC

C:\Windows\APPLOG\MINILOG.LGC

(b) Then Go to registry by Start-run, type regedit. In the registry, drill to

Remove the subkeys under above registry including emailsafe and registration.
