Can not get on the internet anymore

If I click on Internet Explorer icon on the desk top or any of my Favorites, I get a message that basicly says; "Can not find null please check if name is typed correct".

I use XP. My son who uses the same router and modem with his computer does get out.

Can any please help that has the answer?
