hello, ive been haveing trouble with my internet connections. my internet works for about 5-10 minutes and then it cuts out until i restart the computer. Im running on windows xp SP3. The IE log states "Error attmpting to validate the Winsock base providers: 2 error Not all base service provider entries could be found in the winsock catalog. A reset is needed. " I did download HighjackThis and will attach a log I also have tried the command prompts for reseting the winsock catalog and the IP/TCP one but that didn't do anything at all thanks for your help guys much appreciated!!
