Win XP Pro

One of my PCs on network does not connect to network or internet ( the network icon is animated). After searching on net I found winsockxpfix file and applied it. It worked, but day after I had same problem, Now I keep using this file to correct the system (winsockfix.exe).
Where is the problem? registry?
I have scanned the pc for viruses/melware and is clean.
thanks

Try reinstalling TCP/IP by following these instructions EXACTLY:

To reinstall TCP/IP in Windows XP, right click the network connection and select Properties. Click the "Install" button, select Protocol and click the "Add" button. In the next box, click the "Have Disk" button and, in the line "Copy manufacturer's files from:", type C:\Windows\inf and click OK. In the next box, click Microsoft in the left pane, then Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the right pane and click "OK". Close all open windows and reboot the PC.
