    I AM OPERATING WINDOWS XP AND HAVE JUST NETWORKED TWO COMPUTERS TOGETHER. MY FIRST COMPUTER HAS SPYBOT ON IT AND IT RUNS WITH NO PROBLEMS. I HAVE DOWNLOADED SPYBOTS ONTO MY SECOND COMPUTER. THE DOWNLOAD WENT THROUGH WITH NO PROBLEMS, HOWEVER WHEN I TRY TO RUN THE PROGRAM I GET "ERROR STARTING PROGRAM" A REQUIRED
    .DLL FILE, WS2_32.DLL WAS NOT FOUND. SPYBOTS WILL NOT
    RUN.
    ANY ADVICE ON WHAT THE PROBLEM IS?
    THANKS

    Possibly the installation was not correctly done, also the downloaded file maybe incorrect, even though the install seemed OK. Try reinstalling. If not then find the file on the first machine and copy it to the second machine. Make sure the file you are copying is going to the exact same destination folder as the original one.
