Vista Home Premium and winsocket problems?

  1. I get this about once a day and only rebooting the computer fixes the problem:
    An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.

    And for example when that error has occurred I can't connect to any web site (using firefox and ie) nor cannot I connect to any mirc server for example, mirc gives error (Permission denied) when trying to connect any server.

    However, I can ping and receive ping answers through command prompt.

    I googled and found out that this is probably some kind of winsocket problem. But I have no idea as how to fix this, it's really annoying. About every now and then (usually 1 time in 24 hours time) this problem occurs and only rebooting fixes it.

    Any ideas?
