    Have you recently removed webhancer or new.net?

    Check your startup programs by running msconfig and clicking "startup" tab. Are either of those listed there?


    It may be worthwhile to perform this procedure:

    WINSOCK2 FIX (Techguy...Del)

    Winsock2 Fix;

    Please note if you are going to do this you must have installation cd or cab files.

    -Go to add and remove program | windows setup tab| take the check mark out of COMMUNICATION | click apply | when asked to reboot say no. -Click start | run | type regedit follow the path HKEY LOCAL MACHINES | system | current control set | services | winsock2 -Right clickl select delete. -Go to add remove programs | windows setup | put check in COMMUNICATIONS | when asked to reboot say no. -Check [Control Panel] network applet and verify there are no duplicate adapters and only what is required is there. -Reboot and try to browse.
