"mswsock.dll was not found"

by seanferd In reply to winsock error

You need to see if the file is missing, or the registry is missing the entry or it is corrupted.

You can run
sfc /scannow
from the Run box. If your system came with an installation CD, have this available.

You probably also want to scan for malware, as this is one very likely cause for this problem. MBAM at malwarebytes.org is a good scanner.

Thanks a lot dear but i already tried system file checker but no result. As per the malware is concerned this issue occurred on two system out of one was freshly formatted and another one occurred installing Norton internet security antivirus.
Uninstalling antivirus didn't help. But on both the systems i am unable to reset winsock and Network Location Awareness service as well. So I think issue is related to WinSock corruption. In my software there is a network log features so i enabled this and noticed it was giving "I/O error" relating to those clients.
waiting to hear soon..
