unrecognized winsock RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 4 comps all on same router 2 work great gets internet ,ports everything. 2 comps only come on,can do all internal things but no internet,ports usbs nothing . I've got it basically narrowed down to two problems with help from microsoft forums. 1) windows live onecare, the 2 comps that don't work have onecare .the two that work do not.  2) entry in winsock file shows last entry as it appears is a virus or something. netdiag indicates it is not a windows file. so my question is how can you disable a winsock, im not sure thats the problem, but both non working comps have it and both working comps do not.  entry reads as=  unrecognized  winsock nsp: nwlinkipx/spx/netbios compatable transport protocol. any help you can give would be much appreciated. THANKS
