I have Windows 98 and just a couple days ago I turned on my computer and a window popped up saying "Windows Sockets Initialization Failed". The label on the window, or title or what do you call it at the top of window says JavaScan. OK so I pushed ok and most everything seems to work anyway, but cannot get onto internet. Get error message re: sockets, cannot exactly remember. Also, right after the Windows Sockets init fail msg, then a progrom called Webhancer comes up saying has performed an illegal error and will be shut down. So I say fine, i don't even know what that program is anyway, so I deleted that program thinking maybe was cause of socket problems. Well it wasn't. So I tried reinstalling windows, and still sockets initialization failed. Do you know why this may have happened and how can I fix it. I did scan for viruses using two diff programs, but last time updated was 9/17/01, so maybe wasn't totally up to date and of course could not get on internet to update it (I am using computer at work right now). Please let me know what to do, Thanks!!!
