So I get an error stating that Winsock 2.0 is not installed. My we browsers won't work, nor will my network connection to my server. After reading a little about winsock, it seems that if there is a problem, anything using TCP/IP will be messed up by it.

My problem is I don't know how to fix it. Not sure where to download it. Went to microsoft with no luck.

Please reply.....my job is depending on it.....me and my big brain are gonna get me fired :) :tazz: ;) ;)

try this

start > run
cmd
enter

at the prompt type:

netsh int ip reset > C:\ip.txt

it could take a minute or two to complete (finished when you see the c:\documents......

again.

reboot.

OK, so when I get to the command prompt......I have another problem. Been a while since I used dos.

the directory showing is c:/documents and settings/kevin

I tried using the CD/c: to change the directory to just C: but it didn't work. What do I do to get the C prompt by itself?

And yes, I'm an idiot :tazz:

you don't need to be at the c:\ prompt

will look like
c:\documents and settings\kevin\>netsh int ip reset > C:\ip.txt

To be sure I did this correctly. Once I've typed in that string, it sits for a second or 2 then goes right back to the original prompt. Should I reboot now or should there have been more to it?

Ok, so I rebooted. Nothing has changed. My browser will open, but won't connect. And that dos program is coming back with the same error on the Winsock 2.0 not installed.

gerryf,


Thanks for the help. You got me to the point where I could use Microsofts website to direct me. Got it all workin again. Basically the winsock files were damaged. So i had to repair them, then delete them out of the register, so XP could create a new shell. I then had to reinstall TCP/IP on my network connection. So there, vuala.....the magic of computers.

Thanks a million.....I get to keep my job for another day.
