I didnt see it in Explorer, and the listing in Command Prompt is pretty long and I may have missed it.

Going to try it anyway.

I may have to just bite the bullet and do a clean install of Windows 7. If I do, I will let you know. I thought that last idea was going to do it.

Here's a copy from my Vista.

Download it and save it to your desktop then change the extension from .txt to .dll

copy and paste it to C:\windows\Sytem32\

probably wouldn't hurt to run

regsvr64 C:\windows\Sytem32\nlaapi.dll

Got to go now. Sorry but the ferry won't wait and I have to pick up my wife from the airport in Seattle tonight.

I think I found it! If you haven't reformated or something.

There is an entry in the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinSock2\Parameters\NameSpace_Catalog5]
"Num_Catalog_Entries"=dword:00000008

Change it from 8 to 7

OK

and then reboot. I'm pretty optimistic about this one. There is a second entry for the 64 bit windows which is already set to 7:
"Num_Catalog_Entries64"=dword:00000007

After spending several hour this afternoon studying the results you sent me and comparing them to mine => Mine gets to the end of the winsock2 list and starts working on winsock (without the 2) - yours gets to the end of the winsock2 list and tries to read an 8th entry then it just gives up. There is no 8th entry for it to read so it closes everything and starts over again.

No luck. There was already a 7, so I just deleted the one with the eight and no change.

Didn't seem to hurt anything though.

Curses!

It really looked like it it should have fixed it.

Can you run Process Monitor, start up Opera, let it fail and then do a search in Process Monitor (Edit, Find,) for transports?

That's the next step after reading the winsock2 entries.

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock\Parameters\Transports

The only result was for the Lexmark printer. No other files including transport were found.

Yes. That's what it is supposed to read next but it doesn't seem to want to do it or we would find transports in process monitor.

The fix you suggested through email worked. Everything is back up and going, and now reinstalling the necessary programs.

Thanks for all the help!!!
