DNS Issue?

by mayr25 / October 31, 2004 1:41 PM PST

I just performed some maintenance work on a computer, (patched it and ran Ad-Aware), and now it cannot gain access to the internet. Neither IE nor Netscape will load a page, they just give the standard error about network settings or DNS resolving errors. The box is a Windows 2000 Professional box on a HP Vectra, 933 MHZ with 128 MB ram. I uninstalled the TCP/IP stack and reinstalled, to no help. Any ideas anyone? Thx.

Thanks Bob, I downloaded the Winsockfix.zip file from LavasoftUSA earlier and ran it, and it fixed my issue, although I wasn't sure at the time how it did. After your explanation, it makes much more sense. I appreciate the help immensely!
