missing winsock2. dll running time component on Ie5.5

I have tried to download some courses from the web. Everytime I do it, I get a "unsupported configuration-missing winsock2 run time component," However, when I surf the web normally, ie 5.5 works okay. How can I configure the ie to have the winsock loaded?

I believe you need to dowload the Windows Socket 2 update from Microsoft's website.  Winsock is installed with TCP/IP, but it sounds like you need the latest version.  Try this link.
