Hi Pam,
Well, I don't think it will fix that, but it's still worth a try and shouldn't hurt anything.
Have you looked in add/remove programs to see if you can just uninstall the patch.
I noticed most of my patches are listed in there.

After a lot of research I learned that one of MS's patches caused my
problem. It appeared to forget how to find a URL. It would look for *this*
URL on *that* site. *that* site would never be the same site. When I empty
my cache and go through and dump all my temp files that IE doesn't empty
then it behaves for a while. It's such a pain. Well, MS offered a patch to
fix the problem and sure enough, for the first week or 2 after I did the
patch it worked exactly like it is suppose to. Then it began doing its
forgetful act again. I live with it, use Firefox for all that I can and
suffer through IE when I must.
That's what made me say that maybe I could get lucky with this winsock fix.

Hi Pam, Too late, I just sent it to him again. If it does what it says it does, it looks like a good little program to have around. Have you tried a repair on your IE? I mean just for funsies? I would expect that should fix the winsock too.

I already sent it to him earlier, Bob. He told the other list
that it fixed
his problem.
Now I'm tempted to try it. I still have that several years old problem
with
my IE.
