    About one year ago I posted a problem about installing Kerio 2.1.5 on a Windows XP system:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=221143

    To recap, when I went to boot the p.c. after installing Kerio, the XP boot up took several minutes before the following error message appeared:
    "C:\Program Files\Kerio\Personal Firewall\PERSFW.EXE
    pfVarLibInit: vol_server_start error: 1 (10022 socket() failed)"

    Thereafter I could not log on to Windows.

    I believe the problem was due to the two on-board network adapters as Kerio worked fine when they were disabled.

    Well one year later, the following procedure seems to have corrected the problem:

    1. Load updated network drivers (Intel PRO1000 in my case, e1q5132.inf)
    2. Enable NetBIOS over tcp/ip on adaptor #1, disable on (unused) adaptor #2.
    3. Run WinsockxpFix.exe

    I don't which of the three steps was the crucial one, but now I can report that my XP computer is booting up without problems every time :thumb:

    Having said that, I've since migrated from Windows XP to Ubuntu 9.04. :D I use Ubuntu for everything except video editing.

    Thanks especially to Antarctica and noone_particular for their suggestions a year ago.
