How fast is your network running?
I'm no expert on networking but this sounds like a slow (could be cause by too much traffic causing bad packets) network.

Writing down the error message would help more though..

I had the same problem. It is a known issue with Microsoft. The main problem was with Excel documents. The solution for me was to apply a hotfix to the XP machine. This is not a freely available hotfix. You need to call Microsoft support and ask for the hotfix Q810907. The problem is described in KB article 810907
