    mswsock.dll crashing Firefox

    Dear All,

    I require some help understanding a issue I am having with mswsock.dll. My son plays Hero Squad online. It has always crashed Firefox with this error (see below). I have tried a number of suggestions none have fixed the problem. The game uses Unity Web Player and no-one on Unity support forum is replying to my thread and Gazillion (company who created the game) don't have a clue.

    I have ran combofix, hijackthis & TDSSKiller none fixed this issue. I can supply logs on request (doubt they are needed though)

    I have a few instances of mswsock.dll (see jpeg attached)

    mswsock.dll free download - DLL-files.com - Download that and place it in your System32 folder, then try again.
