Do a google search for "repair Vista Winsock"
I got a virus on my computer and now nothing will connect to the internet. I've ran multiple virus scanners and have gotten everything off, but web browsers, p2p programs and even games which need internet access can't access the internet, yet the computer says it's connected. Windows updates still happen. I've tried system restore and I've even tried using a repair disc. Neither help. Is there anyone who can tell me why a computer says it's connected, but web browsers won't load the page or say that the internet isn't connected?
Any and all help is welcomed. Help me figure out this phenomenon please?
