My sister has XP Home. After removing a popular AntiVirus; she lost connection to the Internet. I was able to correct the problem by running Winsockfix for her.

I have a friend in another state, who is running Vista Home Premium. That's all I can tell you about her computer. She is having connectivity issues since leaving a certain carrier. I want to suggest Winsockfix. Microsoft provides instructions for manually repairing Winsocket problems on Vista. This would be over my friends head. I cannot find a 'Let us Fix It For You' version of this tool, stated to be specifically for Vista. Does such an animal exist?
