On logging into Vista Home Premium I get the message appear:

DNS
Failed to load control 'SocketXCtl' from SocketX.OCX. Your version of
SocketX.OCX may be outdated. Make sure that you are using the version of
the control that was provided with your application.

The file doesn't even exist on my computer. I thought it may be
something to do with IP V6, so removed this from the connection
properties. Any ideas what this is relating to so I can remove it, or
fix it?

Cheers.

Do a thorough check for malware following all of the steps at one of these
sites:

Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software.

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.

Hey, that all looks simple enough. So when can he actually start to use his
computer?

Love and Kisses,
