Hi Newcomer and Welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

A socket error 10013 can be caused by antivirus or firewall software. Basically, a needed socket connection is being denied. I suggest you disable your antivirus or firewall software and then give it another try. If it works, then you'll need to configure that program so that it no longer interferes.

If you need help configuring your personal firewall software please consult the firewall program's help file or other documentation. You might also visit the support area of the firewall manufacturer's Web site. We have some helpful links and information about firewalls in our Knowledge Base at
