No Internet Connection – WinSock XP Fix

WinSock XP Fix offers 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. If you encounter connection problems after removing network related software, Adware or after registry clean-up; and all other ways fail, then give WinSock XP 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.

Download it here:

Honestly, this utility has stopped me from going grey over the years due to hours of troubleshooting network connection issues.

Forget Your Windows XP/VISTA Password????

This is a utility to reset the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your system.

  • You do not need to know the old password to set a new one.
  • It works offline, that is, you have to shutdown your computer and boot off a floppy disk or CD.
  • The boot disk includes stuff to access NTFS and FAT/FAT32 partitions.
  • Will detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled out user accounts!
  • It is also an almost fully functional registry editor!
  • And the best part? It’s FREE.

    I have recently updated the Rocktown website. Vince was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful on what he wanted from his website.

    Below are some of the comments i got from Vince about the service i provided him.

    Have you had any positive feedback from the new design from your staff, family or customers??? If so please elaborate what you have heard.
    “Yes the staff think it looks much better, more modern.”

    How would you rate my communication and ability to understand your ideas and implement them into the website?
    “Yes, good. Everything went as we wanted, your reaction was quick.”

    Please check out the website and if you ever need anything music related give Rocktown a call.

    NT Car Detailers

    Peter from NT Car Detailers approached me to build a website for his company. The objective was to showcase his high quality work to the public. Previously peter showed interested clients a photo album of his work but since the launch of the website Peter can show potential clients his work without organising a meeting.

    We have spoken to peter since the launch of his website and in the first month Peter mentioned that the website had paid for itself.

    We were honored to work with peter and NT Car Detailers in creating them a online portfilio of his work and feel proud to hear its going so well.

    Please feel free to check out the website and if you ever need your car looking better then new give peter a call.
