This behavior could occur if your computer is infected with the W95.MTX or Matrix virus, or a variant of this virus such as the W95.Oisdbo, W95.MTX.dr, W95.MTX (.dll), or W32/Apology-B viruses. This behavior could also occur if the Wsock32.dll file on your computer is damaged or missing.

To try to work around this issue if your computer is not infected with the W95.MTX or Matrix virus, replace the Wsock32.dll file by using the appropriate method.

Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition
To extract files in Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition, use the System File Checker tool: Quit all running programs.

Click Start , and then click Run .

Type sfc , and then press ENTER.

In System File Checker, click Extract one filefrom installation disk .

In the Specify the system file you would like to restore box, type Wsock32.dll , and then click Start .

In the Extract File dialog box, type drive Win98 in the Restore from box, where drive is the drive letter of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive that contains your Windows 98 CD-ROM, and then click OK .

In the Backup File dialog box, click OK . If a The backup folder does not exist. Do you want to create it message appears, click Yes

When you receive an "Extract File" message, click Yes to restart the computer.

.
.
Windows 95
To extract files in Windows 95, use the extract command. You can also use the extract command to extract files from Windows 98 if necessary.

Click Start , point to Find or Search , and then click Files or Folders .

In the Look in box, click drive C , and then click to select the Include subfolders check box.

In the Named or Search for box, type win95_11.cab .

NOTE : If you are running Windows 95 OSR2, the Wsock32.dll file is located in the Win95_18.cab file.
Click Find Now or Search Now . If the Win95_11.cab file does not exist on the hard disk, insert the Windows installation CD-ROM and repeat the search on the CD-ROM drive.

When you find the Win95_11.cab file, note the location of the file (for example, C:\Windows\Options\Cabs). This is your source path.

Click Start , and then click Run .

The general form of the extract command is:

extract source path \win95_11.cab wsock32.dll /L c:\windows\command
For example, if the source path is C:\Windows\Options\Cabs, the extract command is:
extract drive windows\options\cabs\win95_11.cab wsock32.dll /L drive windows\command
where drive is the drive on which Windows is installed (typically drive C).

Type the following command, making the appropriate substitutions as previously noted:
extract source path \win95_11.cab wsock32.dll /L c:\windows\command
Click OK.

Best of luck,

Maxwell

which version of internet explorer you are using? your problem indicates a corrupt system file. reinstalling the same version of ie you are using may sometimes resolve this type of problem.scan also your computer for viruses.
