If WinsockFix doesn't work you could try clicking start>run and typing sfc /scannow (press enter).

Via email 'Hi dan what will your suggestion do to fix my problem'

WinsockFix repairs your Winsock (basically the software interface that Windows uses to connect to the internet).

'sfc /scannow' replaces any corrupt Windows system files that may or may not be associated with connecting to the internet.

Something like that anyway...
