I also got this problem once and i solved it by adding a String value to Registry

try this:

open "Run" command and type "regedit.exe"
and navigate to this key:
right-click on HOME0 and select "New -> String Value"
and rename it to USE_SHARED_SOCKET and set the value to "TRUE".

hope this helps

May be you can try to recreate the listener dropping it and creating new one using NET Configuration Assistant.

Have you used SP2 for XP. I have heard that it closes ports.

Also firewalls, antiviruses, other programs like Newton influence the normal run of Oracle.

Try to avoid additional third party software on Oracle Server machine.
