    I am having a problem accessing certain websites, such as microsoft.com and adobe.com. This problem just started out of nowhere, and I have tried everything I could think of to fix it. I ran the Diagnose Connection Problem, and I got this error:

    Error attmpting to validate the Winsock base providers: 2
    Not all base service provider entries could be found in the winsock catalog. A reset is needed.

    Well, I ran Winsock XP Fix, and this didn't fix the problem. Then, I reset Winsock entries to installation defaults, and I reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, and this didn't fix the problem either. I also ran an adware/spyware scan, and a virus scan. I can't think of anything else to do. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Well, everything seems to be working just fine now. It must have been a problem with my ISP or something. Thanks to anyone who took the time to read this thread.
