Do you have winsock.old on your system?

Copy the Winsock.old file from the Windows folder or the Windows\System folder to the folder containing the program's executable file.

Rename the Winsock.old file in its new folder to Winsock.dll.

Thank you very much.It wasn't really what I was looking for,as the rebuild notes I had were very specific and easy,and microsofts answer was more on the side of getting rid of it,not rewriting as my instructions had stated,but i'll figure it out somehow.
