Windows Socket Installation Failed

Post by FreeGeezer on Thu Nov 04, 2010 12:35 am

On a laptop with Windows Vista, it began not connecting to the internet. It has built-in wireless. The router and modem can be connected to by another computer on the network. During boot up, the following messages are displayed:
Windows Socket Installation failed.
System Event Notification Service.

The error message banner says "Tific Digital Support". All I can find out about Tific is that it was recently acquired by AVG for use as some sort of automated "Click 'n Fix". Well, AGV is not installed on this computer and clicking on the message doesn't fix anything. :sad:

There are quite a few services listed that are "stopped", including "netlogin".

Has anyone encountered this before? Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks,
Roy

Hello and Welcome !

Start | CMD | Right Click and Run as Administrator

netsh winsock reset catalog (resets winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log (resets TCP/IP stack)

Reboot the System then Test it.

Start | CMD | Right Click and Run as Administrator

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Reboot the System then Test it.

Also Start | CMD | Right Click and Run as Administrator then type in sfc /scannow to validate your system files.
Follow this article and Disable the add-ons and Tool bar in Internet explorer. Also do a Reset http://captaindebugger.wordpress.com/sf-ie-restorator/

Wow! Thank you for such a quick response.

I will give that solution a try. I may not be able to get over there until Fri. or Sat., I'll be sure to post the results.

Thanks,
