Again, thanks for all your assistance - it really is appreciated!
Downloaded both of those two.
When I run lspfix, I am advised that no errors were found.
When I run winsockxpfix, a 'Program Compatibility Assistant' comes up with the following;
This program has known compatibility issues. Advises WinsockxpFix 1.2 is incompatible with this version of Windows.
I click the 'Check for Solutions online' button, I am advised 'No solutions found for Winsockxp Fix 1.2', and 'Windows will notify you when solutions become available'.
I click OK and instead click the 'Run Program' button. I then click the 'Fix' button, which gives me an window saying 'Apply the VB_Winsock fix?'. When I click 'Yes' I am presented with an error window stating 'Registry Import Information not Found'. When I click on 'OK', I get another message stating 'Repair Completed Please Reboot'. When I click on 'OK', I get an error message stating 'Run-time error '53': File not Found'.
I have tried to get Windws Defender to auyto-connect again, but still no joy. . . . .
Any other suggestions?
Thanks for your continued help in advance!!
