  • Errors that you are missing SpOrder.dll after running Microsoft AntiSpyware or can no longer connect to the Internet

    Save the file and extract it to your desktop. Then double-click on the LSPFix.exe icon on your desktop. When the program loads, click on the Finish button and reboot your computer. You should now be able to connect to the Internet.

    If that fix did not work, then you can try this alternate fix . Download the following program:

    Winsock2Fix Download Link

    Save and extract this file to your desktop. Then double-click on the WinsockFix.exe file found there. When the program launches click on the ReG-Backup button to backup your registry.
