msvcrt.dll error in XP

A screenshot is attached. This occurs not only when opening certain web pages, but also when a web based application is launched. I have updated from IE7 to IE8 in an attempt to fix this, no luck. Tried disabling add-ons, no luck. Uninstalled a bunch of stuff including Windows Messennger (which was crashing too). Any ideas?
Thank You

I have tried a couple of these types of reg cleaners - they throw the error too! I can't run them.

From that link did you see that if your msvcrt file does not include the _resetstkoflw function, you can restore the original msvcrt file from your XP CD by following the steps shown?

try repair the corrupt files through SFC tool. Logon to the system as an administrator and type the below mentioned command in Run or command prompt. This command may require access to the Windows installation source files:
sfc /scannow
This command scans all protected system files immediately and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
If this doesn't resolve the problem try reinstalling internet Explorer through Add/Remove Windows Components.

I wound up wiping the drive, and reinstalling the OS. Did not get to try the last suggestion.
