Error 324 on google chrome for ALL sites i try to go on!


If you encounter connection problems after removing network related software, Adware or after registry clean-up; and all other ways FAIL, then give WinSock Fix a try. It can Create a registry backup of your current settings, so it is fairly safe to use. We actually tested it on a test machine that was having a Winsock problem due to some Adware Removal, and after running the utility and rebooting, the connectivity was Restored. you can free download WinSockFix 1.2 now.

I cant browse using google chrome.... error 324 keeps on appearing


Hello, trying Running WinsockFix http://www.brothersoft.com/winsockfix-66663.html
WinSockFix is a last resort if your Internet connectivity has been corrupted due to invalid or removed registry entries. It can often cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or improper uninstall of firewall applications or other tools that modify the XP network and Winsock settings.
Hope this helps!

I'm getting an Error 106: (net::ERR_INTERNET_DISCONNECTED): The Internet connection has been lost message when I try to connect to the internet, I'm using another laptop to send this query, how can I Fix...


(Remember to Rate)
Sounds like a few things, but lets get most of the problems out of your way.
So you want to download a few programs as it sounds like a virus/malware/etc. As its affecting your browser Google Chrome (maybe its just that one or all the browsers on the one system). Youve verified that everything is working ok on another computer, which helps narrow this down to virus/malware. Either way, you want to run these 4 programs :
Emisoft Anti-malware Kaspersky Removal Tool Super anti-Spyware Spybot (Immunize) and scan.
right off the bat, please go to super anti-spyware and under tools you will see the option to repair or restore winsocks. This is usually the main cause why your error happens.
Winsock is short for Windows Sockets API. It describes a standard way for Windows programs to work with TCP/IP. You use WinSock or the more recent Winsock2 if you directly connect your Windows PC to the Internet. This feature is mis-used by a few hijackers to facilitate their own monitoring. Data packets outward bound from your computer to a legitimate destination on the web can be intercepted by a malware LSP and sent somewhere else, other than where you had intended it to go.
again, if that doesnt fix, run all the scanners (update them before running, run as admin). Reboot, repair winsock, use Marcos Valasco Registry Cleaner Freeware. And reboot, you should be mint.

Thank you

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


If the error comes only with a particular website then it is possible the website is not operating or has closed down.

But if the error is coming with all websites then your internet connection may be faulty. Hard to provide much more help without details of your internet connection type, the operating system on your laptop, etc.

Can not connect to the internet.


That's common in Vista. Click on Start > Find > Files or Folders , type in winsock .
Go to where the file is located via command prompt (start - run and type "cmd" (without the quotes). for example:
if the winsock.dll is located at c:\windows\system32\winsock.dll then type "regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\winsock.dll . If you did this correctly you should get a message saying "winsock.ocx registration successful" or something to that effect.
Restart the computer and hopefully it'll work. If it doesnt please let us know.

Dell Optiplex 745 desktop will not connect to internet


Most desktops need to be connected with a wire to your network because most desktop computers do not come with a wireless NIC (network interface card). If you are not sure if yours has one you can get your service tag off of your computer and type it in the Dell website (link below) under drivers and downloads and look at the original configuration for your system. If you have a Wireless NIC card in your desktop it should connect just like your laptop computers did. If not you may have a defective wireless card.
