My question is twofold. 1. Is there a known incompatibility between PE and the Freecap socksifier ? 2. Is it possible to, in a simple way, boot the computer once without Port Explorer but not removing PE altogether of coarse. Some temporary change to the registry or config files. I mean disabling the PE DLL hooks and tricks with the winsocks, not just the user interface. This for the purpose of testing suspected interactions such as in question 1 above. The OS is Windows 98 SE. -- Cz.
