    Windows cannot load the drivers

    Hello, I have the most recent update for-Intel(R) Wireless Link 4965AGN
    driver, problem is Windows cannot load driver required for this device.
    Also when I start my computer (laptop OS=Vista Premium 32bit) it flags me
    that WSAStartup() Failed or have incorrect version of WinSock installed.

    Also, Diagnostic Policy Service will not start-Error 5: Access is denied

    It seems my computer is getting worse and worse, any help would be MUCH MUCH
    appreciated!!!

    If your Vista was preinstalled on a new computer you need to contact the
    vendor for support for these kinds of issues. A reinstall may be in order.
    If you bought a retail copy of Vista contact MS Product Support Services.
    They are excellent.

    RE: Windows cannot load the drivers

    Just had the same problem a couple of days on a friends computer, I got it
    home to see what it was, and he said that he switched off his computer when
    it was doing an update at shutdown. But exactly the same problems,
    WSAStartup() and incorrect version of Winsock.

    I thought one solution would be to see the update history, but that appears
    to be blank, tried to find where windows keeps the udpates, couldnt find it,
    if anybody can help, sure would help.

    Thanks
