A bit more information her wouldn't go astray. How are you connecting to the Internet?

If you are using a Dial up Modem what happens if you log on with the modem without opening any application like IE FF or something similar?

Can you open the affected applications without being logged onto the Net and retain the display?

Yes the requisite query by the HAL is to be answered first, alternatively have you diagnosis your Modem? Control Panel -- Phone and Modem options -- Modem --Properties -- Diagnostics -- Query Modem ?? Check this

Check the system events with event viewer. Can be a conflict between devices that share the same resources. If it so try to put different IRQ, memory. You must have antivirus and firewall on computer which are connected to Internet.Make a complete virus scan. Clean temporary files from your Temp folder. See what processes run with Task Manager.
