My internet connection is excellent but I have problems connecting to IE7.After 10 minutes it still says connecting.I then try to close the page and I get the usual unable to connect message.I have infact managed to connect before by clicking on the "more information" after the unable to connect message comes up and I have followed all the suggested things there but it has made no difference.I have "spybot search and destroy" & "Adware pro anniversary edition" and "Trent micro".I have run updates in windows XP.What is error 12007? I'm too scared to try and go into the microsoft problem solving area as I once ended up causing more problems with an issue I had before.However today I connected straight away.
Any suggestions

error 12007
Something is not configured properly. Follow the procedure here, first:

If that doesn't work, try this:
Open the Command Prompt
Type in

netsh winsock reset (note the spaces)

press Enter
