Hi,

Does anyone know where I can find WinsockXPFix.exe?  It doesn't seem to be available at the following site anymore:

http://members.shaw.ca/techcd/WinsockXPFix.exe

Also, can this be run on Windows 2000 Professional?  I did see a post on EE where someone did have success running this on Win2k.

Thanks.

Mark
