Welcome to TSG. That particular socket error is supposed to mean "host not found".

My interpretation is that you have some software trying to access something which isn't there.

Have you done an updated antivirus scan?

You can do an online one here:

Once viral, worm or trojan infections have been ruled out, there is "spyware". We can have a look at what you have running at startup if you go to start, run msinfo32 and click on "software environment" and "startup programs". Then click edit>select all>edit>copy and paste the copied text in your next reply.

You should also go the link below and review the FAQ and "getting started" pages for Ad-aware, a program we will probably suggest you install and run. But let us see your startup info first.
