************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Wouldn't hurt to update your Java either.

Updates might help. Can also make sure your NIC isn't being powered off in device manager > right click under network adapter > properties > power management > uncheck "allow computer to turn off this device..."

Leave wake on activity checked. This a desktop/laptop?

What program are you running that is bringing up this error? It seems to be trying to ping the network at regular intervals. Some game or p2p application?

Correction - looking again it seems to be MSE checking for updates. Perhaps the computer is putting your network card to sleep when it is unused for a while? Check it's settings in Device Manager.

I have a program that is suppose to check for MSE updates upon bootup. Could this program be causing the issue?

Is this something special? I thought MSE regularly checked for updates of its own accord. Can you disable it (the program, nots MSE) for a while to check?

Most likely this is causing the problem. As ijack said, it looks to be trying to update when the computer is left idle and likely entering some form of a standby when the network connection becomes unavailable.

And as I said, update your Java... or install it if you haven't installed it.
