Fix Winsock errors

Recommended solution: RegCure

Almost all modern software packages require a connection to the Internet in order for them to work properly. Because of this common need from many computer programmers, Windows includes a special interface for programs to reach the Internet call Winsock. While Winsock is what allows your Windows computer's most useful programs to connect to the Internet, it's not without its problems. Winsock errors can cripple your PC and stop your software from working.

How Winsock works

Microsoft, the developers of Windows, try to make it as easy as possible for people to write software for their operating system. Winsock is one of many special tools, called APIs (or Application Programming Interfaces), that Microsoft provides as part of Windows to make the jobs of programmers a little easier. Winsock takes Internet requests from software and translates them, doing most of the hard work of Internet communications for the software program.

What happens when Winsock fails?

When Winsock fails, programs needing an Internet connection to function - which, these days, are almost all of them - will also fail. This can cripple your system, prevent you from getting critical updates, and stop your Internet browser, email client, and other critical programs from doing their jobs.
