Socket Error 10106

A friend of mine gets the following when he tries to connect to IE or Incredimail. Won`t be able to look at the computer until tomorrow but has anyone any ideas?

"Could not create socket - error number 10106"

You haven't mentioned which operating system he's using, if its Windows 98 I've found this on the Microsoft site, but sorry I haven't a clue what it means, but it may to your pal.

Yes! It`s Windows 95 but it all went pear shaped when he followed Tiscali`s advice to download their accelerator!

Thanks. I`ll print off the knowledge article and set to work on it tomorrow. Will post back if it is resolved.

More or less! The problem was there but the underlying problem was a lack of space on the Hard Disk. Ended up reformatting and reinstalling the entire system, cleared everything out and he now has nearly 1 GB of extra space. Thanks again.
