Procedure Entry Point in WS2_32.dll

  Malcy The Alcy 11:49 31 May 2003

When clicking on video links on the internet I sometimes get the following error messages;
"The Procedure Entry Point getaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link libraryWS_32.dll"

"The Procedure Entry Point WSCUpdateProvider could not be located in the dynamic link libraryWS_32.dll".

This is with Windows XP and IE6.

Ha anyone else come across this or know how to cure it?

Put your Windows XP cd in the drive and close the window that opens

Now click Start/All Programs/Accessories and choose Command Prompt. Type in

sfc /scannow

and hit enter. This will check and replace any damaged system files.

Looks like I'm stuck with it. Thanks for your help though.
