1. Please download LSPFix from here.
2. Run the LSPFix.exe that you have just finished downloading.
3. Check the I know what I'm doing box.
4. In the Keep box you may see one or more instances of xxxxxx.dll.
5. Select every instance of xxxxxxx.dll and move each one to the Remove box by clicking the >> button.
6. When you are done click Finish>>.


xxxxxx.dll is the name of the .dll causing the winsock problems

winsock fix, need to know a site to download winsock


P0rnstar05 says no need for 3rd party software! To repair a Winsock error requires the re-load of the communication stack. Please note before you play with the Registry Make sure you do a back up first! Just in case something happens you can back it up to a previous state. Now their are 2 methods to fix this;


method 1

Delete the NextID value in the registry, and then restart the computer.

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Telephony\Cards
In the right pane of the Registry Editor window, click NextID.
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.

Method 2

In-place upgrade of Windows XP. Delete the Telephony key in the Windows
registry, and then do an in-place upgrade of Windows XP.
You will need a system disk.


To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Telephony
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
Do an in-place upgrade of Windows XP.

I used to do this type of stuff with customers a while back now moved on to bigger and better careers. P0rnstar05

Irongeek,

Whilst your input is appreciated, using a simple almost automated fix is far better for many of the users who come here, who find the registery as a very daunting place to venture into, especially when they know that one small mistake can cause severe damage

I am not able to get use of my e-mail now and wonder if I removed something from the winsock fix. It happened right after I ran the fix. what should I do? the message I keep getting is no TCP/IP installed when it is in fact there.

thanks,
