  1. I've joined the crowd of users who have this problem. I'm pretty technical, and have run thru a lot of the suggestions on the site, with no luck. Win XP Dell laptop. Upon bootup (normal start), The error titled Symantec AntiVirus: VP Tray.exe - Ordinal Not Found, with the text The ordinal 1109 could not be located in the dynamic link library WSOCK32.dll. This error has an OK box, and repeats 3-4 times, then is gone.

    I run Symantec Antivirus 2006 v10.1.6.6000 and it updated daily; full scan found no problems.

    Malware log:

      [o] Don't follow directions given to someone else
      [o] Don't use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you.
      [o] Don't use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.
