The easiest way to remove unwanted items from your LSP stack is to restore the default settings for Windows.

Warning! This might however break other applications that use the LSP stack, like iTunes, some AV's and some firewalls.

If you are not sure about having legitimate items, post your log in the forum following the directions here.

Go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> right click on the Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator.

Type netsh winsock reset catalog in the Command Prompt window, and then press the Enter key.

Restart the computer when prompted

After the reboot you can manually delete the associated files

Depending on whether you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows you may find and delete:

C:\Windows\System32\MyOSProtect64.dll

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MyOSProtect64.dll

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MyOSProtect.dll

c:\windows\system32\myosprotect.dll
