My problem started with not being able to access the internet, when I went into the command line to renew the ip address I received this error message "an operation was attempted pon something that is not a socket"

I attempted to do a repair on the Windows Home edition with the CD, and that worked until I arrived at where you have to activate the Windows. It now comes up and says that it can not connect to server and puts me back to the Welcome screen.

I am unable to do anything at all at this time. Can you help me please?

Follow the Telephone link option to call the Windows Activation line to get back into Windows. That's all you can do.
