I have a friend who just started having trouble with her internet connection. She tells me that she does not have any problem getting her e-mail but when she goes on line she will get disconnected in about one (1) minute every time she tries to go on line. The next paragraph is her message to me:
I've tried to go online several times and after about a minute my computer disconnects. I get three error pop-ups each time it disconnects.. One saying "Error in Winsock module. Connection structure is unknown. Possible Reason: Your firewall and / or antivirus application block the system files:
services.exe Make sure that services.exe can connect to the internet.
The other pop-up reads the same but instead of "services.exe" in both
places, they read "csrss.exe" and "smss.exe"
Since she can not stay connected she does not have access to the online tools needed to check for spyware, viruses and the other tools available. She has checked this condition with her Norton Antivirus program but it does not find anything. Does anyone have any idea as to what she can do so she will be able to stay on line so she can check out her computer with the available online tools. BTW she does not live close enough for me to personally help her out. Thanks for any information.
