I'm with Capt. Jack at this point - remove AVG and ZoneAlarm, install MSE and the hotfix linked above, and you should be good to go.
Sorry.. If I knew how to check other system reports and compare them with mine I would. I did uninstall AVG and ZoneAlarm and installed MSE and it has yet to crash, so I think that was the problem. With my XP machine, AVG + ZoneAlarm was pretty much an award winning recipe for free protection.

I'll update the drivers in a little bit, just to air on the side of caution and to make sure the system is 100% good to go. I tip my hat to you good sir.

You might still want to install that hotfix, but yes, the issue that hotfix fixes seems to be caused by interactions between antivirus products, firewalls, and Windows' netio/tcpip components and UDP. McAfee HIP is known to cause this, and apparently so is AVG+ZoneAlarm.

Don't worry about comparing, these sorts of things aren't easy even for us to do, so in this case don't feel bad. We're just starting to notice this today (which means it's likely an AVG def update started triggering it, considering you don't appear to have actually updated anything in the last 24 - 48 hours). Live and learn, it's what we all do.
