i found that in the alst few days i cant download files from the internet, i tried also with files that i already downloaded in the past but with no success.
when i turn the computer on i receive a message error loading p2esocks_1019.
i'm afraid i may have deleted this file while freeing space in the hard disk.
any help will be appreciated
thanks

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

lol sorry..

Try restarting the computer using "last known good configuration":
1. Start Windows, or if it is running, shut Windows down, and then turn off the computer.
2. Restart the computer. The computer begins processing a set of instructions known as the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS). What is displayed depends on the BIOS manufacturer. Some computers display a progress bar that refers to the word BIOS, while others may not display any indication that this process is happening.
3. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Continue to do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
4. Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, scroll to and select the Last Known Good Configuration menu item, and then press Enter.

Or you can try a system restore. Start->All Programs->Accesories->System Tools->System Restore.

I was having a very similar problem and after an internet search ended up with this topic. Your advice was the first that I found that helped at all and only took a few minutes to actually do, after hours (or what seemed like hours) of searching elsewhere.

Thank you.
