    Cannot allocate socket error

    I'm getting a "Cannot allocate socket" error every time I try to ping or run a trace route in TweakMASTER. I've written the support people and they have no idea what it is. If I reboot in safe mode, I can ping and run a trace route fine. I have Comodo Firewall pro and have tried disabling that but I still get the error. Has anyone else run into this problem or maybe have an idea what could be causing this?

    looks like something has corrupted and/or modified your network and winsock settings. try to run the winsockxpfix and see if it fixes it.

    I already ran that a while ago (and again last night) and no change. I'm not having any problems with any other programs with the net, only this one. The exact error is:

    Internal Error: Cannot Allocate Socket

    on both ping and trace-route. NeoTrace works fine and trace-routes and I am able to connect to the net fine in IE. Something somewhere is causing this but I can't seem to nail it down.
