    Dear Sirs,

    my internet connection is always down and I don't understand why. I have to
    run everytime an internet explorer diagnostic, restart the computer and
    sometimes (if i am lucky) get coonected.

    I started to not use anymore the pc at home but just at work..............

    I am very disappointed by all these messages, as below, because when i
    contacted Microsoft, they just told me to switch off/on the pc and everything
    will be ok.

    If you are using a Windows Version Before "Windows XP" and your computer is
    not capable of running "Windows XP", you need to get one that will.
    Microsoft no longer supports Windows Versions earlier than "Windows 2000 and
    ME". (if they still do, they will no longer support them very soon.

    Windows XP and above have "Self-Correction" that solves those "Win-Sock"
    issues unless you have either a Virus on your system or the Operating System
    is Corrupt in some way. As for a Virus Issue ~> Eliminate the Virus (if
    any). After that, there still may be corruption in the Windows Operating
    System.

    If so (and if no viruses, yet the Win-Sock issue is still present)... Back
    up your files that you can and RE-Install Wiindows. There may be "Repair"
    options available when using "Safe-Mode" from the Windows-Install-Disk or
    your Manufacturer-Computer-Restore-Disk.

    If this is too technical for you, I suggest you consult a Computer
    Professional to restore your system. At Least ~> try to get your
    Un-Corrupted and Un-Virus-Infected Personal data off of your Hard-Disk before
    attempting this procedure.
