Are you running up to date Anti Virus?

It may also be worth running:

Spybot click here

AdAware click here

SpywareBlaster click here

i ve got a firewall on now and i just run my anti virus

Download, install and run the three programs 'Big Elf' has mentioned and see if that cures it. Is your firewall downloaded or is it XP's own? TR

downloaded from computer active

click run and type msconfig to see whats running at start up tick selective start and re boot if a lot faster you can then disable them one by one til you find the culprit.
