    I am running a Windows XP system and having major problems with my internet connection (dial-up). I can connect to the internet but when I open up Internet Explorer it always comes up as Page cannot be displayed. My e-mail does not work either..I can ping IP addresses but not the actual names....DNS is pointing at the right servers....any ideas?

    Either run this

    http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html

    or use this fix

    Run Regedit
    Delete the following two registry keys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2


    Restart the computer
    Go to Network Connections
    Right click and select Properties
    Click on the Install button
    Select Protocol
    Click on the Add button
    Click on the Have Disk button
    Browse to the \Windows\inf directory
    Click on the Open button
    Click on the OK button
    Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
    Click on the OK button
    Reboot
