    I had posted this topic yesterday, and the problem seemed to be fixed, so marked it as solved. Well, the problem is back. Sorry for double posting, but I wasn't sure if I could unmark my previous thread as solved.

    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 using AdAware and Spybot Search & Destory, and a virus scan using AVG. It found nothing. I can't think of anything else to do, so I ran a HiJack This. Here is the log file. If anyone could look over it and see if they find any problems, I would greatly appreciate it. If nothing is found, is there anything else I could do to help solve this issue? Thanks in advance.
