    Got a pc to look at this morning for a mate, its running vista and when I get to the desktop i get an error message stating

    c:\windows\system32\wship6.dll is either not designed to run on this version or has an errror blah blah blah........

    along with several of these popping up it also does not display web pages using explorer or firefox, also the globe symbol does not appear in the notification area over network connections, but I am able to ping google.com etc

    any ideas?

    cheers all

    Any changes to the machine recently? Anything in the event logs?

    I'd run a full AV scan as a start.

    Hi

    wship6.dll is a part of Windows Vista.

    Default location: %WinDir%\System32\wship6.dll
    %windir% is the drive letter where you have install vista, normally C:

    It's better to run the System File Checker utility (SFC). This will replace any corrupted system file with the last backup version of the file. To do this:
    • Click start
    • Find command prompt
    • Right-click command prompt, click run as administrator
    • Type or copy the following command and press enter to repair only that file:
    sfc /scanfile=%windir%\system32\wship6.dll

    To scan all system files and repair them as needed the instruction is sfc /scannow

    If it doesn't repair the file, then check http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833
    for the next steps

    Try disabling IP6 and seeing if that resolves it.

    disabled ipv6 no luck :(
    looking at network and sharing centre its not even picking up the name of the network, still identifying, no ip settings picked up either, set ip settings myself but still no connection made :(

    In which case standard practice (particularly if its a mate) is to hand the machine back and say either:

    ITS ALL THE PORN YOU'VE DOWNLOADED!

    or

    sorry, without clear information your making this harder to fix than it needs to be.

    Depending on whether your in public or private. :twisted:
