Hello johnritzer,

5. If no joy, run the System File Checker to repair any broken system files.  Go to Start > Run and type sfc /scannow
and hit OK.  You will need your Windows XP CD when asked.

6. Create a new user account in Windows.

7. If no joy, repair or reinstall Internet Explorer, which is to reinstall Windows XP SP2.

It could be some malware/spyware.
Download SAV32CLI a command line based antivirus from http://www.sophos.com/tools/sav32sfx.exe . run this file to extract the contents into a SAV32CLI folder .
Restart the computer in Safe Mode with command prompt.
Access this folder at the command prompt
Then type:
SAV32CLI -DI -P=C:\LOGFILE.TXT
to disinfect the virus.
I had faced a similiar issue and it helped me resolve the problem. Good luck
