Hijacked WINSOCK. You updated many components and now the malware doesn't work in your newly updated Windows. I've seen this issue show up when people update machines.

-> Email me your Hijackthis file or post here from the machine in question and I'll see if there was malware listed. I won't do more than look and tell you if I see it.
