Problems registering mswinsck.ocx
Ive downloaded and copied the file mswinsck.ocx to my C:\Windows\SYSTEM32 folder and tried registering it, but i get this message 'LoadLibrary("mswinsck.ocx")failed - The specified module could not be found.'
Any help really appreciated...

you downloaded mswinsck.ocx and it's asking for mswiinsck.ocx. (note the spelling difference) is this correct?

Spelling mistake on my part!

was it a spelling mistake when you tried to register it, too?
have you tried registering it using the full path? or cd'ing into C:\Windows\SYSTEM32, and then executing regsvr32?

I downloaded the mswinsck.ocx control and saved to C:\Windows\SYSTEM32 then clicked Start|Run and typed regsvr32 mswinsck.ocx but i then got the above message!

Maybe you have downloaded only the update file without the full packet.
Mswinsck.ocx is an active x control which comes along with visual basic. Since the program is giving you that error, it means that it wasn't installed or copied properly. Try and look for the control via internet, its called microsoft windows socket active x control.
you can get this file at www.megasecurity.org/Needed_files.html click on the file and download it save it to the same folder as your cddb is saved in then unzip the file into the same folder as the cddb.

When you are registering the file, use the full path to where the file is located.
