in response to groovicus's question: i only did a repair install on windows XP pro. I know this problem is sometimes associated with networks, i am on a simple LAN which is going through a router and said router is only connected to my pc and my Xbox 360.
and besides that, now whenever i log on to my computer it logs me straight back off again, unless i start xp in safe mode, then do system restore (taking about 1/2 an hour) and then log in. only to go straight back to the aforementioned predicament after i next turn on.
