No dude it's not your router.

its possible that a file has been overwritten.
have you installed any programs prior to this happening.?
have you done a virus sweep of your system recently. if not, I would do one now.

you could then try this:

To resolve this issue, use the Windows XP Recovery Console to replace the Msvcrt.dll file with the original version. To do this, follow these steps: Insert your Windows XP CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD-ROM.

NOTE: Some computers may require that you modify the basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For information about how to modify BIOS, see your computer documentation.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Press the number key that corresponds to the installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER.
Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
With the Windows XP CD-ROM still in the CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, type the following commands, pressing ENTER after each command: cd system32
ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
cd \i386
expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
exit
cd system32
ren msvcrt.dll msvcrt.old
CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter:
cd \i386
expand msvcrt.dl_ BootDriveLetter:\windows\system32
exit
NOTE: BootDriveLetter refers to the drive letter of the boot drive. In other words, it refers to the drive where the Windows folder is located, which is probably drive C. CD-ROM_or_DVD-ROM_Drive_Letter refers to the drive letter of the CD-ROM or the drive letter of the DVD-ROM drive. The CD-ROM drive or the DVD-ROM drive are frequently located in drive D.
