I'm using NOD32 2.70.12 RC for the past few days. Everything has been OK with it but I just lost IE7. Won't connect to the internet. I run the diagnostic that is offered on the screen and am told that I appear to have a problem with the Winsock provider catalog. My understanding of the Winsock is that a problem with it would keep me off the net. But I'm using Firefox to write this. I'm still very new to pcs and don't know if I should try to repair the Winsock or try to figure out what else could be wrong. I found Blackspear's instructions for Winsock repair but just want to make sure I'm going in the right direction. Hope somebody can help. Thanks, J.
