    the old snow white, hahaha virus has infected some clients on our network. It killed the wsock32.dll file of course and extracting a fresh copy has not worked! i also tried extracting copies of winsock.dll and mstcp.dll. These are Win95 machines so I also tried rolling back and re-installing the winsock2 update. I still cannot get these machines to log-on to the domain. I have also removed all clients and protocols from networking and re-installed those. I removed and re-installed the NIC driver as well.
    What now? i cannot log-on to the domain. When I re-load the NIC, TCP/IP is not shown in network properties, i have to add it. Does anyone know if this virus can propogate through a network?

    The regedit seemed to work. I ended up removing all networking components again, rolling back the winsock2 update and removing the reg entries then reloading everything and she's up. Thanks for the link, i didn't see that one when i was searching the ms knowledge base.:D

    You're welcome, glad to hear you're back in business -- MS has a bunch of them, but that one was the most thorough :)
