Windows 7: Winsock Protocol

Winsock Protocol

Hi there,
Earlier today, I tried to uncheck a specific item using Autoruns, and this error message came up: Winsock Protocol Providers cannot be disabled. Is there a possible way to fix that?
Cheers!

What exactly are you trying to fix? If Autoruns didn't disable anything, there's nothing that changed.

That is not an error but an informational message. I see the same message on my system. The fact that Winsock providers cannot be disabled is by design. They can be deleted but you would need a very good reason to do that,.

Hi there, the reason why I am trying to disable them is because I bought my computer off eBay and it had Netintelligence installed on it and when I tried to uninstall it, it requried a password which I do not have. I read somewhere that I can use autoruns to remove it, but I get an error, which I have listed in my previous reply. Cheers!
