I've got a problem with a Winsock error #2.
Have used Microsoft's repair tool as well as others and still have the same problem.
IE7 can not connect to the internet.
Firefox does.
This problem might be due to a problem with a beta of an anti-virus application.
DO I have to do a re-install of XP Pro or is there another way of fixing this?
I'm still very new to pcs but will try anything I can get directions for.
I have a 2 yr. old eMachines with AMD cpu and XP Pro w/SP2.
Thanks.

Thanks for trying.
The problem still exists.
What I did notice is that LSPfix stated that no problem was found yet IE states the problem is Winsock related.
I'd rather not do a re-install if I can help it.
Hopefully somebody can help with some more ideas.
Thanks,
jrspie

Hi jrspie...

Have you tried Winsockxpfix? There are also repair options available using the original installation files.
