Fix Winsock:

(The PC may connects to the local network, but cannot browse the Internet)

  1. Start > RUN > regedit
    • Delete the following registry keys
      [HKLM]\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Winsock
      [HKLM]\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\WinSock2
      [HKLM]\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\Winsock
      [HKLM]\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Services\WinSock2
      (There should be no Winsock entries under [HKLM]\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ but check anyhow)
  2. Network Connection Properties
    • Delete the “Client for Microsoft Networks”
    • Restart computer
  3. Network Connection Properties
    • Install the “Client for Microsoft Networks”
    • Install TCP/IP stack on top of itself (from C:\Windows\inf)
    • Restart computer. This will recreate the Winsock registry entries and IE should work
