I tried it as you said in Dos.......guess what?...I had to rename it back cause none of my web appts would run "cant find file Wsock32.dll, a required file"..seems I have to put up with this shaky version of Winsock or can I get the newest upgrade?..If so where?

Please clarify:  the newest upgrade is 2.2, what exactly do you want?  Your previous question stated that you wished to downgrade to 1.1.  Do you wish to do this or stay with the newest version?

Well you dont want to make them read only because then you cant modify it. Then if you want to downgrade what you want to do next is to reinstall dial up networking. You can do this from the control panel--add remove programs-windows setup-communications. Then remove the check mark and reboot and then do the same thing and put the mark back in and reboot.
