Try WINSOCKFIX (use google) to see if that cures it.

Thanks Bob. I now can get to my web pages. I am still getting the RUNDLL error message though. Have any clues as to what I should do?

To remove the startup line, I run HIJACKTHIS (find with google) and remove the newdot entry.

Cheers,

Bob

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
