DVSocket not responding?

Several times when I close Win XP Pro, I get this message saying the application DVSocket was not responding and I press end to end the program manually. I've tried searching under applications and processes for this application but cannot find it. I found some other people on the internet have the same problem but no one has yet proposed a solution. Does anyone know what this program is and how I can get rid of it? I have also been experiencing problems with applications not removing themselves from memory when closed and thus having problems opening when restarting. I don't know if these problems are related. Thanks.

Yeah, actually I have a Palm Tungsten E. It also has given me certain problems, like when I boot up the Hotsync Manager says it was unable to initialize my TCP/IP stack. The wording might have been a little different, I will writei it down the next time I see it.

What is a hijackthis log?

have hijack this remove the feature

If you still need documents to go try uninstalling and reinstalling. By removing the start up for that file the program will still work it just wont be loaded into memory until you need it..

That did it, sorry for the long delay. The Palm software's been pretty messed up on my PC. Think I'll have to wipe it and reinstall.
