Hey guys
Any of you had a problem dialling up then get an error message - Error
in Winsock Module.......Possible Reason: Your Firewall and/or Antivirus
application block the System-File: services.exe.....etc.

This error is real mind twister but believe it or not it has nothing to
do with your winsock files, firewall or anything associated. It is
actually a VIRUS. Yes a virus - Sober.o(SYMANTEC) to be exact. Good
news is that McAfee's Stinger - http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/ - is
able to remove the affected files and Symantec has a removal tool -
http://securityresponse.symantec.co...moval.tool.html :thumb: :D 
YAY!!

Hope this helps :cool:
