    Error - "Receive Socket Create Failed!"


    I just started receiving this error:
    UA StartSignalReceiverFromOuterThreadError: Receive Socket Create Failed!"

    With the exception of Curse Client I can't connect to the internet. No browser will connect(firefox, IE, Chrome, Opera). Steam won't connect. Email client won't connect.

    Other computers at home can connect. Not problems with router.

    Event logs show Critical errors with
    Application (This is NVidia)

    I can add more info from the logs if that would help.

    The only thing I've done is a System Restore. It didn't help.
    I had installed Assassins Creed which installed DirectX.

    I've searched the webs and forums and can't find anyone with this issue but 1 guy 8 months ago, and there was no solution posted.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have soooo much work to get done and I'm freaking.
