WinSock XP Fix
fix XP internet connectivity
Our Rating: 3 stars (Good)
WinSock XP Fix offers a last resort if your Internet connectivity has been corrupted due to invalid or removed registry entries. It can often cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or improper uninstall of firewall applications or other tools that modify the XP network and Winsock settings. If you encounter connection problems after removing network related software, Adware or after registry clean-up; and all other ways fail, then give WinSock XP Fix a try. It can create a registry backup of your current settings, so it is fairly safe to use. We actually tested it on a test machine that was having a Winsock problem due to some Adware removal, and after running the utility and rebooting, the connectivity was restored.
Pros: May save you hours of headaches; can fix tricky connection problems
Lots of satisfied "customers" here:

Does that mean you can't access the Internet at all or your having problems while connected? I'd wait on using WinSock XP Fix until you provide us with more specific information.

With all due respect, ruby1, I don't believe I was vaguely stabbing in the dark. Computer_Noob said:
we really still need to know which antivirus and other programs are on board and which version of windows is involved before vaguelly really stabbing in the dark with suggestions that may be unsuitable for the computer in question
...found a program called SmitFraudFix ...it did exactly what i needed it to do... t got rid of the dreaded zlob and some other junk, it made my computer run alot smoother and faster, the only thing that bugs me is, i play games on the internet, Diablo 2, Gore, and starcraft and i can tell right away that something is killing my dial up, b/c ive never had problems w/ it before i used Smitfraudfix, im just wondering if anyone has a solution for what im experiencing

As a last resort, using it as suggested is not the obvious simple thing to do. While that utility may resolve the problem, its not necessary to start off using it until we gather more information. From what Computer-Noob said: "something is killing my dial up", I don't know what that means.
