My computer, operating Windows 98 SE has taken to telling me on start-up that "PfVarLiblnit:var_server_start error:l(10047:socket()failed)"My question is obviously what does this stuff mean, and why can't be explained in plain language?

what have you got running at startup?

It's actually a very informative error message. It would help someone (who knew where it came from) fix the problem. :D "Plain language" would be (a) lengthy, and (b) not useful to a debugger.

It suggests you have a problem with Kerio Personal Firewall.

Does this seem right, (are you running this utility?)

Try uninstalling and reinstalling it.
