Getting Service profile is damaged. Please reinstall service profile. when trying to use IE and accessing MS update web site.

I have a machine with xp home installed, we had to do a repair install to get the machine up and running. We are now getting a service profile is damaged. This happens everytime we click on IE and once we are on line we get the message when we try and access the MS update site. Any help would be appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I was able to resolve this by deleting the dial-up connection in the Network Connections folder. Apparently the dial-up settings got corrupted.
