    :) i have a dell computer that has xp. i connect to the internet using a cable modem. about a week ago i started having trouble connecting. i called my provider, they said it is nothing of theirs. i called mcafee because i use virus scan, privacy center, firewall and security center. nothing they suggested worked. i tried a new lan card. that did not help. i have released and renewed the ipconfig. i have tried lspfix, it only show three items on the keep side :mswsock.dll tcpip, winrnr.dll ntds, and mcslp,dll protocall. the only way i can stay connected at all is to click the repair button on the local area connection. i have to do this every few seconds, or i lose the connection. i have tried uninstalling all mcafee programs, and doing all the above again, but nothing works. i have ran virus scan, spy-bot and ad-ware. any help would be appreciated.

    just wanted to let you know that the problem has been fixed. i had to delete winsock and winsock2 from the registry, and when i rebooted xp automatically put them back. then i had to reconfigure the tcip/ip and install the ini files for it. so far this is working. (y)
