Hi Jan, welcome to NST.
If you go into System Restore, do you have any restore points from before this started happening ?
If so, try selecting one and let XP try to heal itself.
If this is successful and your problem is resolved, think about what XP has undone on your system.
Had you installed any software which has now been backed out ?
Did Windows Update change the system ?
