Odd...I started getting the same error again today. (described below)  It had been running fine for the two weeks since my first post.
 
I restarted FoxWeb...no improvement.
I restarted the web server...no improvement.
I did not reboot the box.
 
I went through the steps described in http://www.foxweb.com/Win2000Fix.asp again.  I added the foxweb service user, in addition to the web server user, just for good measure.
 
I restarted both services, and now the FoxWeb pages are coming up just fine.
 
FWIW,

I am in the process of upgrading one of our live servers, www.ket.org, from FoxWeb v1.29 to v2.6.  I was getting the following error in the browser.
 
FoxWeb Message

The FoxWeb Service has returned the following message:

Could not Create Socket
 
After much head-scratching, I applied the Win2000 fix found at http://www.foxweb.com/Win2000Fix.asp . 
This fixed the problem.  Only now do I recall I made the same discovery a few months ago.  I miss my other brain cell sometimes.  ;-)
 
Note that the user you need to grant permissions to is the user (or users) that the web server runs as.  I initially granted this permissions to the user the FoxWeb service ran as, which is not what was needed.
 
I'm posting this here so I can find it again next time.  If it helps you, too, then so much the better.
