 From my experience, the problems comes from Windows. It can have  
several causes such as:
- An antivirus replacing the socket manager with its own (such as the  
old Viguard for example),
- A damaged Winsock.
- A service running in background and causing troubles.

You might be into one of those three cases.

Regarding the damaged Winsock, there is several web site on the  
Internet dealing with this Windows annoyance:
- From Microsoft website,
How to determine and recover from Winsock2 corruption: http:// 
- http://windowsxp.mvps.org/winsock.htm
- http://www.cit.cornell.edu/computer/security/spyware/repair.html

I hope this helps,
