Ok, not sure what's going on. My PC running ME is working fine with the exception that I can't get online with any browser. I usually run Mozilla, no matter which browser I choose I get the “can’t display page check your network settings” page. I spent many hours with my ISP folks just to have them tell me I’m having a “winsock” error and that they can’t help from here on in. I’m not sure what that is. My home network is fine because I brought home a laptop from work, Macintosh running OS X, and I can get to guys. So that to me tells me that the issue is on the PC.
I ran Ad-Aware, Spybot, and Cwshredder and deleted what it found. I update NAV defs every Friday so they are current as of the issue. I can ping the IP address of www.apple.com so I know I’m on network.
Not sure what to do, looking for some help to get me going.

If you do infact have a winsock problem it can be fixed by downloading and installing this for ME.

You did it! Thanks so much! I ran the file you suggested and all is well, so I guess it is safe to assume it was a winsock error.
Thanks again
