TCP/IP Error in Event Viewer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin (More info?)

The error below is appearing in error logs for clients running XP PRO sp2.
These operating systems were pre-installed on Dell Dimensions.
They are accessing a SQL Server 6.5 database.
The application does not display an error message however the inquiry that
would normally take a couple of seconds takes several minutes to complete.
Clients with sp1 do not have this issue.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

System Event Log:
'TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent
TCP connect attempts.'

    The .exe linked to at the URL below is flagged by McAfee Virusscan.
    Unfortunately, their WEB site is vague.
