I just downloaded the AllofMP3 Explorer and when I try to set it up I get this message: "Socket Error #11004"

The first time I tried the set up my Microsoft Anti Spyware popped up and I accidentally told it to block the action by AllofMP3 Explorer.

How do I get past this Socket Error and/or undo what I did with the antispyware?

I already tried unistalling the antispyware then running the AllofMP3 set up but that didn't work. Help

How do I resolve the Socket Error # 11004 that appears every time I boot? It has a tile of Windows Update in the top of the error message. Is there something in the registry or internet connections I can fix?

A:Socket Error # 11004 appears every time I boot up

Hi 47DeerePuller and welcome to TSF !

When did the problem start ? Have you installed/uninstalled some program recently ?

Socket error (#11004): Valid name, no data of requested type

Go to the eventviewer : start => run => eventvwr.msc. Search the different sections there for that error (since it happens everytime you boot the computer you should be able to find it by looking at the date and time), double-click it and click on the third button on the right to copy the information then paste it here (right-click => paste). This will tell us which program is trying to access the internet.

That error can also happen if invalid DNS servers are used. If there's some mail client that checks your e-mails on startup then contact your internet or mail service provider or go on their website to know which servers you have to use and how to setup your mail client accordingly.

The problems with ISP/Error Retrieving Update issues has now been fixed.The problem produces the Ad-Aware SE warning: "Error retrieving updates" when performing a webupdate. It interrupts at 5% download completion .( If your update stalls at another point than at 5 %, your problem stems from another issue.See ) your not having the problem described above, then you do no have to do anything.

A:Fix For Ad-aware Se Users With Isp/error Retrieving Update Issues

I've been having that problem too, but it seems to be fixed.My work-around was simply going to their site, download the update file, then put it in the Ad-Aware folder. When I load it up, it updates it to the newer file definitions.[Update]I just now did an update on two computers, and I am now seeing something very unsettling, in a way.I use PeerGuardian 2, and I've used it for about 2 years now, and I've been using Ad-Aware for a bit longer, and now when I check for updates, and then begin to download the updates, my PeerGuardian 2 is blocking Google Inc from connecting to the destination ip address And it is indeed coming from using the Ad-Aware update. No doubt or question about that part. And a fact is, Google was never reported/blocked whenever I updated the Ad-Aware... but now it does.And it's blocking Microsoft Corp from connecting to ip address it's blocking Microsoft Corp from connecting to HTTP ip address[Another Update]The ip addresses are indeed Google Inc. & Microsoft CorpMy PeerGuardian 2 blocked their connections, and still I got the updates I needed. I'm going to have some partners of mine investigate this.I've used both programs long enough to know what will get blocked, if any, when I update a program, and those blocks were never ever being blocked when updating Ad-Aware.I'll definitely have to research this more.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro on my Dell laptop. This laptop has been in storage and hasn't been turned on in a year. Originally, all I wanted to do was use iTunes. The problem:
It made me update it in order to use it, but I got an error.
I un-installed it and tried downloading a fresh copy and I get the following error:
After some Googling, I read that not having the latest Windows .NET framework might be the problem. Sounded reasonable so I fired up Windows Update but that gave me an error and wouldn't start checking for updates.
I managed to get it to check for updates, but now when it starts the process, I get the following:
I Googled the error code "8007007E" and tried a few things to try and fix it.

None of this worked.

Here is the requested log info for my Windows Update Error Code 80070643:

1. the logs after running the SURT tool. This routine ran in just a few minutes and asked to install HotFix KB94781. It said the installation was completed OK.

2. : the CBS.log file after running SFC /scannow. This said it found some corrupt files but could not fix them all. Note that a long time ago I deleted the standard/sample media files (photos & music) that get installed with Win7.

3. Capture.JPG: screenshot of the the error messages I get when trying to install the Office 2010 SP2 update. Note that I did reboot just before running this update.

I'm still considering de-installing Office 2010 and then re-installing from an updated SP2 download - if I can find that. My concern is what imapact doing this will have on the sieze of WINSXS & INstaller folders.

Okay I am at wits end.

When I hit send and receive all 3 accounts the User has setup fails to receive anything.

I get the following error -

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'XXXXX', Server: 'XXXXXX', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10053, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

Now I read a TON of web pages prior to posting so please make sure to read what I have tried before posting a thought on the fix -

I tried everything on this KB -;en-us;813514 except OE reinstall because this is a PC that has OE integrated and to be honest I can't get the account info if I have to wipe it and reload it for another week (but it has to be fixed now)

Basically I have tried the following -
1)Uninstalled AV - No change (even the same socket error number and standard error number).
2) Made a new identity - No change

Hi, I have looked at all the different discussion threads and tried almost every single suggestion made but still have'nt had any luck so far.
I can receive email but can't send any. What triggered this error is that, I recently moved from London to New York and I am now using a different ISP to connect to the internet. But my old setting should work (since it has worked in the past when I logged in from hotel or other locations using different ISPs.)

I have tried changing the port numbers etc, but I keep getting back this error message.

"The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Test', Account: 'O2 Email', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

Any help will be much appreciated.

You must go to the website of the new email provider to get the correct settings. Not just port numbers but all other settings as well.

Socket error 10065 from Outlook Express
Hi, for the last few days we have been receiving "The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Joint French', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10065, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E" from Outlook Express.

I have :
- run a full Norton system scan - no viruses found
- run a disc cleanup via Start programs, accessories, system tools, disc cleanup
- run a Norton registry cleanup - same problem
- tried uninstalling Outlook and then found a posting that says you cant physically uninstall and reinstall outlook

Google chrome is working ok and I can get to the messages via Chrome but am having no luck getting outlook to send and receive mail.

Internet search implies it may be a broekn registry entry but is there a recommended registry cleanup took and/or can you suggest anything else I can try?

Much appreciated

A:Solved: Socket Error: 10065, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Just for completeness - I found the cause of the error was nothing to do with ports. We use an application called Peerblock which prevent our PC sending information to third parties (telecoms companies, educations institutions, etc.) This uses lists from and one list in particular (the bogon list) would seem to contain an IP address which conflicts with a combination of and Outlook express requirements and so prevents Outlook working.

I am unable to send through my msn account; which is a drag to forward something that came in that mailbox. I get the error: Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E. This error does not happen when I am forwarding or sending in one of my other email addresses. The solution that I have seen posted states it is a problem when you have "call waiting" on your line. Since my puter is on the same cable as my phone, I need to have phone usage, call waiting, and puter use all at the same time. This has been an on and off issue since Windows Live took over my old Outlook Express. Without moving messages from the msn account to another email, is there a better way?

A:Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E usually means there is a problem connecting to the server or the connection is timing out.
You can try to ping your SMTP server.
Go to start - run - type "ping MSN smtp SERVER" (where MSN smtp SERVER is your smtp server you are using in outlook express for your MSN account).
Let me know if you get a reply or not.

Your firewall (if you have one) might also be interfering? Try turning them off temporarily.
You might be using the wrong port to send emails?
Lastly you have to authenticate to the SMTP server and you might not be doing that?

I use POP3 accounts in Thunderbird for my emails. These are the same accounts I use on my older Windows 7 laptops, but on the new Toshiba Windows 8.1 laptop I frequently get errors that the server was reset when retrieving my emails. Never happens while browsing the web. Everything else is the same: same home wlan, same router, same accounts, same thunderbird. So it has to be something to do with 8.1 or the network adapters on the new laptop. The network adapters are Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter installed by VirtualBox) Windows says I have the latest drivers. Any suggestions? I'm not good at network troubleshooting. Thank you.

A:Server reset error when retrieving email

I do not know why you are going that deep on troubleshooting. The adapters would have nothing to do with this. It helps to know if you are trying from the Desktop or Metro/Start interface. Also a Server reset can happen on the other end, not necessarily on your end.

I have one of three computers where I cannot send mail from my account on Outlook Express 6 running under Win XP Pro with all current updates and service packs installed. I receive a 421 Error any time I try to send. I have tried importing settings from both other computers that have no problem sending mail from my email account. All 3 computers use the same ISP and router. I deliberately have no firewall software, AV, or anti-malware software installed on purpose due to issues with business apps I use. (Please don't lecture me on those choices if you choose to respond). This inability to send is relatively recent, but I can't correlate it to anything in particular. I have basically the same programs installed on all 3 machines, they are used in a SOHO environment. Also, I have tried using Microsoft Outlook and Thunderbird on that machine. They do not send mail either. I've checked other message boards, and no one seems to have a definitive answer to the question. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

A:Outlook Express 6 421 Error Retrieving Mail

List of SMTP Server Response Codes:
421 - The service is not available and the connection will be closed.

Individual numbers in the error code:
4: The server has encountered a temporary failure. If the command is repeated without any change, it might be completed. Mail servers can use such temporary failures to keep untrusted senders at bay.
2: Refers to the connection status.
1. This last number is even more specific and shows more graduations of the mail transfer status. This leads us to the detailed list of ESMTP server response codes, as laid down in RFC 821 and later extensions.


You need to contact your ISP. The fact that other mail programs can't send successfully either puts it in the hands of the email servers.

Firefox 1.0.7

I rarely use the MSN browser (Firefox instead) and on occasion when I open my Outlook Express to check my mail and find spam that I wish to "block sender" I open MSN to perform this task. I have two MSN hotmail accounts.

I wanted to do this this morning and upon opening MSN>Mail & More, discovered that instead of retrieving the mail as it usually does I received this popup:

The same in both accounts (one popup might say "MSN5.mailhost" while another in the other account might say "MSN7.mailhost").

I was able to open my Outlook Express without any problem and it retrieved all mail from
the servers without any problem or errors.

Not sure what to do next. My computer is otherwise healthy with frequent Spybot, Ad-aware, etc. scans being performed on a regular basis.

In fact, I just ran new scans with nothing malicious being found.

NOTE: also performed a System Restore to about a week ago and
still get the Mailhost error when I try to retrieve mail in MSN.

Thanks for any help.

A:Solved: Mailhost error retrieving MSN mail

While doing my own trouble-shooting to find a solution to the Mailhost error, I did a Google Search for "MSN mailhost error" and this was the first recommended: How do I solve an MSN MAILHOST problem? and followed the advice to:

* Click on the Start menu button.
* Select Run from the Start menu.
* In the dialog box type:
regsvr32 c:\progra~1\msn\msncorefiles\mailui.dll

"This command registers the mailui.dll file with the Windows system and should solve the problem. If you are signed into MSN, sign out and then sign back in. Once you do sign back in MSN Mail should now work again."

Well, when I opened the MSN Explorer and clicked on Mail & More my mail was retrieved and all seems to be ok in both accounts.

Perhaps this will help someone else having the same problem.

So my dad has a laptop (Toshiba satellite p100 pspadc-ma305c) that my brother has setup an account for his business work, solely for 3-4 programs. Everything else is restricted, from right clicking to viewing any type of files, folders, drives etc... All admin access is only known to my brother.
Being an old laptop maybe it's time has come to an end. The screen of the laptop is half wrecked, there's big and small stripes all across the screen although it's fine if you use an external monitor. The laptop keeps shutting down quite often when using (according to what my dad said since it has to be on the whole day during his work hours).
It's been days and my brother has ignored to help see to it and fix it and my dad needs it for work, so my dad might plan to buy a new computer and wants to transfer personal data to the new comp. Having absolutely no access (safe mode locked as well), I have no idea how to save the invoice data for keeps if a full re-install of windows would be needed.
Is there a way to work around this or would bringing the computer to like Best Buy for service would be a good idea?

A:Tight spot for retrieving personal info.

Well, there are a couple of options if the hard drive is still functioning properly.

1) If you just need to pull documents, pics, videos, etc of the drive. You can remove the hard drive and use a SATA to USB adapter to plug into another computer and backup the necessary files. Here is an example of the device I'm referring to: : Vantec CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter Supports 2.5-Inch, 3.5-Inch, 5.25-Inch Hard Disk Drives (Black) : Computer Cables & Interconnects : Electronics

2) if you need to access to the programs that were being used. Using the same device as above you can create a virtual machine from the hard drive, this will allow you to use the OS as it was before on another computer. This is an easy to follow guide on how to do that (i believe to view the site you have to create a free account): Reviving a dead PC with physical-to-virtual conversion

Hopefully this helps. I'm sure there are other ways and I'm sure other members will chime in.

Just thought I'd post this as a help to those who may run into this problem. Had a customer who simply could not get on the internet (running XP with cable connection). Here's what I did in an attempt to solve the issue, all to no avail:

1. Uninstalled all garbage applications in Add/Remove programs
2. Ran Adaware 6.181 (found lots o'baloney)
3. Installed and ran Antivir antivirus; found Worm/Sorbig.A
4. Ran Spybot S&D (found even MORE junk)
5. Deleted all temp files on comp.

At my wits end, called his cable provider. We first completely unplugged his modem, then attempted "ipconfiig /release" and "ipconfig /renew". This is the error received:

Operation Was Attempted on something that is not a Socket

Tech guy on other end said to look at MICROSOFT KNOWLEDGE BASE ARTICLE 318584 for the fix. I have to return to the customer's location today, but essentially it involves a Winsock error in XP, and that's what's causing the "no internet" problem. So remember that 318584 KB article the next time you run into this.

After spending several hours going round and round with Adaware, Spybot and Hijack This, along with several alledged XP TCP/IP fixes posted in several different locations here, we've decided on a clean install of XP. Ya know, it's just too bad that Windows doesn't let you uninstall then reinstall TCP/IP. Would probably save a lot o' headaches.

I have changed ISPs recently and the new one has limited international bandwidth. Somehow I can browse sites overseas, but I can not retrieve mail (socket error).

I can access the same mail via a web interface, and downloading the mail from there does not time out or anything, although it is slow, and a tedious process to deliver it to the correct recipient in the office. There are several aliases set up in a single pop3 account.

I would rather use pop3 to retireve the mail. I have tried changing the timeout from 1 minute to 5 minutes, and some e-mails have been downloaded. But I still get socket errors, especially when downloading the larger mails. I was wondering if there are any other tweaks I can try.

Best regards,

Seems like off and on the last week or so, I've had problems with Outlook Express hanging.
I use AVG...and right now when checking e-mail it timed out so I stopped Outlook Express, but I see the AVG e-mail scanner icon is still going around on the desktop.
Sometimes the mail hangs up in transmission, it seems, even if no attachments.
Then today I got the socket error 10061.

A:Socket Error: 10061

Socket error 10061 is a Connection Refused error sent to you by the server. You could not make a connection because the target machine actively refused it. The most common cause is a misconfigured server, full server, or incorrect Port specified by the client.

Try to change your SMTP port from 25 to 587.

Apologies if someone has already answered this but I have a problem that started recently.

I have Norton Internet Security 2006 installed on a Windows XP Home SP 2 PC. I'm using Outlook Express to read e-mail.

Until recently, no problems.

However, these days, when I open OE, I get a socket error 10061 trying to access my POP3 mail server. If I reboot the machine and re-log into windows, the error goes away. as soon as I log off and then log back in, the error is back.

I've restarted my machine in safe mode with networking and have not been able to reproduce the problem under those conditions.

At this point in time, I suspect something with Norton. I did do a recent LiveUpdate session in which a number of Norton items were updated.

Does anyone have any input on this? What can I do to resolve this (Norton Support portal on their website was no help)?

May there be some problem with system files. How to start system file checker in xp?
Please help.

A:Webpages not loading.Socket error

read it ALL first

To protect your computer from old system files, Microsoft created a special service that is built into the operating system. This service monitors your system files, and if one is replaced or deleted, ICS will automatically restore the system file.

SFC works in conjunction with a utility called Windows File Protection that keeps the system file cache: (%Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache) uppdated with the newest Microsoft Approved files as they are installed on your system. I prefer to use the system backup for the ability to roll back to a former configuration however.

To manually invoke the system file checker, be sure you have administrative access then go to the command prompt and type:

sfc /scannow

The system will immediately begin to check all the current system files and restore the cached approved copies. You may be asked to insert the Windows CD as well during the restore.

Clue: Keep in mind that after you perform a system file restore you should install the newest service pack so you are running the most current, Microsoft approved system files.

For you XP users, SFC should be used as a last resort. If you have been creating system restore points, first roll back to your latest restore point and see if that fixes your problem.

i tired all sorts of stuff with my isp provides tech support and nothing worked. any suggestions?

A:[RESOLVED]socket error 10060

10060 is a Connection Time-out error that usually appears when the client does not receive a response from the server for a specific command.

Here are things to try

1. The Outgoing (SMTP) server requires authentication.
If you are using Outlook Express you should check the box 'My server requires authentication'.

2. If you are behind a firewall, we may be unable to authenticate you.
If you have a personal firewall, try lowering the security or disabling it to see if it is causing the issue.
(Remember to re-enable it after testing)

3. Your SMTP (outgoing mail server) could be blocked.
Here is how to test it:
A. Go to Start -> Run -> type: cmd
B. When the Command prompt appears type: telnet 25
(include the spaces exactly as shown above)

C. Wait a few seconds. You should see the following: '220 ESMTP'. This means that it is not blocked.
D. If you do not see this message, your SMTP is being blocked.

Let me explain as to whats happening'.We have an application which is basically a
MIS system.The application works fine on the lease line connections of our client.
However in remote areas,there is no lease line connection.Hence for accessing the
Intranet and Internet, we use a VSAT(very small aperture terminal) connection.
The network admin of the company use a different Ip address than the one given to
the lease lines.i.e if on lease lines,we use the address A.B.C.D,for the VSat connection
,we use X.Y.Z.K for branches having a VSat connection.
We get the login screen for the application on the remote branches
However when we enter the Username and password,it throws out an error.

I tried to get rid of some malware on my computer running XP and afterwards, I can't connect to the Internet. I can ping Google ok and the home network connects to the three computer I have, all of which can connect ok to the Internet except mine.

My Eudora cites an error "Error getting a network socket". Sam Spade pings Google ok but the IP Block check returns "Failed to Open Socket"

The malware was "Downloader" which I think I got rid of with SDFix. But there remains a file in Windows\System32 called MMCHOST.dll that SDFix could not delete. I wonder if it's part of Downloader and is the cause of the Internet connection problem?

I also disconnected XP's firewall but that had no effect. I run Norton AV and before SDFix it showed a notice that I had Downloader which it couldn't fix but after SDFix, that notice no longer comes up.

Here is where I am at:

I am trying to get my XBox to share my laptop's internet connection. I know that this is possible because I have done it before, from this very laptop, with this very Vista os on it. Now, I am unable to checkmark "Allow other users..." for sharing etc. I get the error that Internet Connection Sharing failed because "the dependency service or group failed to start."

Well I found out that it was dependent on the service "Remote Access Auto Connection Manager", so I tried to start that. (It is also dependent on Telephony, but that is running). Same error. I find out that THAT is dependent on "Remote Access Connection Manager". When I try to start THAT, I get the same error.

"Set socket to non-blocking mode failed: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket. (errno=10038)"

Support at VPN vendor suggests that a Windows repair is needed but have no disk as bought the HDD from a repair facility that lost their lease and cannot be located.

Should add that I have had a couple of blue screens lately and have run chkdsk /f and tried to do a system restore but all restore points are gone, even though I had several previously.

Sure hope there is good news somewhere.


A:Solved: Window 7 socket error during vpn handshake

Does anybody know if I can use any Win 7 disk to repair my OS or does the disk have to match my installation key? Does Microsoft offer any way to obtain a disk for Genuine installations? Any chance that Windows Update will notice the anomaly and provide a fix? You can see by these questions how desperate I am.
