What is this error message on shut down.

Running XP and on shutdown I get error message "End program connections tray."  It never ends and I get the Not Responding so I click end now.  What is this message?  I get it after my pc locks up.

Hi

this problem occurs due to corrupt winsock file.

WinSockFix will offer a last resort if your Internet connection is corrupted due to removed or invalid registry entries. It can often cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or improper uninstall of firewall applications or other tools that modify the XP network and Winsock settings.

If you encounter connection problems after removing network related software, Adware or after registry clean-up; and all other ways fail, then give WinSock XP Fix a try.

It can create a registry backup of your current settings, so it is fairly safe to use.

The Winsockfix Utility will:
· Detect your current Operating System
· Release the IP address, taking you "Offline"
· Reset the TCP stack using Netsh.exe (Windows XP only)
· Delete the current Registry TCP and Winsock Values
· Import new "Working" Registry Values
· Backup any Current "Hosts" file
· Replace the "Hosts" file with a default one
· Reboot the Computer


download the utility from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Network-Tweak/WinSockFix.shtml


revert back in case problem is not resolved
