When I log on my computer I am getting two errors. One of them is causing me not to be able to downlod some software I purchased. The error messages are Sockconv has cause a error in ESOCK2REG.DLL and I believe the other says Rundll has caused an error in NEWDOTNET2_109.DLL. I don't know what I need to do to correct these errors. I would greatly appreciate anyone who can help me with this problem.

Thank you

Hi,

I've got a little NewDotNet removal to-do list here:

First go to Start/run, and type Msconfig. Go to the startup tab, uncheck New.Net application, and click OK.
Now reboot, and the program will not load again with Windows, preventing the recurrence of your error message.

Now go to Software add/remove, and remove New.Net application there.

Don't attempt to remove the dll manually, because that may cause the loss of your internet connectivity.

If uninstalling doesn't get rid of the dll (it happens), try this:

First, you will need to locate the New.net ".dll" file that is on the computer. Do this by doing a search for "newdot*.*".

The file will be located in your "Winnt" or "Windows" folder (depending on what version of Windows you are running). Once found, make note of
the actual filename which should look something like this:

Example: newdotnet2_90.dll

Close the Find or Search window then...

Click Start
Click Run
Type in the following line:


For Windows NT users:
"rundll32 c:\winnt\newdotnet2_90.dll,NewDotNetUninstall"
For Windows 95/98 users:
"rundll32 c:\windows\newdotnet2_90.dll,NewDotNetUninstall"

Click OK
You should then see a small window asking if you want to uninstall the New.net application. Click Yes. Once this is done, restart your computer. This should keep the .dll from loading up at startup of your computer.

More info indeed on http://www.cexx.org/newnet.htm


Good luck, Tony

I must add,

If you're running Win2K or Win NT you won't have the option of running Msconfig.

You then must go into Regedt32.exe and delete the NewDotNet value from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

Afterwards, reboot.

Cheers,
