    I don't know if the 2 problems are connected but I made a repair
    installation on my Windows XP laptop recently and used the XP CD Rom from a
    different computer. Everything worked fine besides my internet connection
    got all screwed up.
    Now everytime I start a connection it tells me that I'm connected but I
    can't receive any data. Also some of my internet applications (smtp-server,
    messenger...) get an error message that they unable to connect to the
    socket.
    What does that mean and where do I have to start looking for my
    socket??????
    Please someone point me in the right direction...

    When asking for help, please give EXACT error messages;
    do not interpret them, copy/paste them word-for-word.
