How to use Dial-A-Fix to repair windows internals problems
The following is an incomplete list of examples of known problems that can cause Dial-a-fix to exaggerate or expose issues on your system:
[*]Memory module failures
- Hard drive integrity problems, possibly including but not limited to:
- Registry entry corruption
- Filesystem corruption, possibly leading to:
- System file corruption
- Registry hive corruption
[*]Other hardware failures (video card, motherboard, processor, modem, etc)
[*]Use of Dial-a-fix on an unsupported platform (such as Windows XP x64; 32-bit XP with a 64-bit processor is fine, however)
[*]Use of Dial-a-fix with unsupported beta software

ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use.
freshzilla and Mustangmoe have both experienced why this tool should not be used without expert supervision.
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
Cons: Not actively supported or developed
