Hi folks. I'm not sure if this belongs in this area, if not I'll repost somewhere else.
Anyhow, I keep getting these 3 pop-up error messages every couple minutes for the last couple days. What do you make of them? I can't figure out anyway to fix this;
Here's a direct screenshot of the problem at hand::
http://img237.echo.c...06/popup9yx.jpg

the 1st one pops up with:

:Windows System:
Error in Winsock Module
Connection Structure is unknown.

Possible Reason:
Your firewall and/or antivirus application block the
System file: smss.exe

Make sure that "smss.exe." can connect to
the internet!

followed by:

:Windows System:
Error in Winsock Module
Connection Structure is unknown.

Possible Reason:
Your firewall and/or antivirus application block the
System file: services.exe

Make sure that "services.exe." can connect to
the internet!

and finally:

:Windows System:
Error in Winsock Module
Connection Structure is unknown.

Possible Reason:
Your firewall and/or antivirus application block the
System file: csrss.exe

Make sure that "csrss.exe." can connect to
the internet!

Please help me out! thanks in advance!

Seems like a registry problem - something that is not a socket is trying to connect to the internet.

Try a registry clean up and uninstall all junk programs that yu no longer need!!

hopefull that should help

Cheers
