One of my users ran Adaware, and cleaned up over 500 occurrences of adware. After doing this, she is not able to get to any websites. She can log into our Novell network. Her IP, Gateway and DNS is all setup right. She can ping sites, and I can ping her. She is on Windows 2000 sp4. From what I am reading, it can be a winsock error. However the tool that has been published to fix it, is no longer on the website (winsockxpfix)....any other suggestions?
