Hi.....I got some advice on the HijackThis forum (see post entitled Spyware Problem.....or something else?) that ended up causing a much worse problem than the original one I was trying to fix. I haven't gotten a reply to my last post there, so am starting a new topic here in the hope of getting some help with this.

I appreciate the well-intended advice to try a WinSockFix utility to repair a problem with IE 6.0 refusing to go to certain websites. Unfortunately, however, a entirely new problem arose when I followed the link to the recommended WinSock repair program and ran it. Now IE 6.0 won't open at all (I'm writing this from another computer), and several other aspects of Windows 2000 have become either partially- or non-functional.

Any advice as far as how to repair the repair program's "fix"??

Thank you!

Please keep all your questions in one thread. Posting in another forum will not get it answered more quickly. In fact, it will take longer because we have to go in and consolidate, merge and close topics. Please be patient, someone will try to help you. :tazz:
