Have you checked Event Viewer on this system?
You might also try running SFC /SCANNOW or a Repair. Both require your OS CD and about fifteen minutes.
XP Repair:
A Repair is not designed to overwrite data but you should take precautions.

I restarted the SonciWall TZ170 firewall.  It serves as DHCP provider for the network.  After 2 weeks the problems has not returned.  Some how the Firewall was causing this issue.  I will take it up with Sonicwall to help better understand.  Thanks for the suggestions but they were not the culprit.
