Winsock Fix for Windows 7!
A Winsock fix for Windows 7 is greatly needed to reset and repair your winsock catalog in Windows 7.
Many people regularly have problems with their winsock and TCP/IP connections, because they can get corrupted so easily.
Often connection problems are caused by malformed winsock entries and invalid LSPs (Layered Service Providers). LSP entries are responsible for managing your inbound and outbound internet traffic.
WinsockFix – Repair/Reset Winsock and TCP/IP on XP
WinsockFix is a great utility to reset and repair Winsock. It’s probably the best and quickest fix for all connection problems, but I wouldn’t use it on Windows 7. How could I trust an applicaton that is not able to detect my system and says I’m running a 32-bit Windows? WinsockFix was written for Windows 95, ME, XP, 2000, so I wouldn’t use it on Vista on Windows 7, but if you are still on Windows XP, I would recommend the tool.
Fix Winsock Manually on Windows 7
1. Open up the command line utility and enter:
netsh winsock reset catalog (resets winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (resets TCP/IP stack)
2. Reboot your PC
Fix Winsock via Batch
I wrote a little batch that will run the commands for you. This could come in handy if you forget the commands and you can no longer go online to look them up.
Download that file and to run it right-click on winsockfix.bat and click on “Run as administrator”.
