A few days ago, i found a small problem, but the effect is so big. My company adviser have win 7 laptop, which could not browse to the internet, but it can ping to any website. I have check all of the security issued, but nothing is wrong.
I search this issue in google, and found something useful. It is the WINSOCK problem, a windows service which provide network communication. The solution is :
- Open Command Prompt, on the Accessories tab, and right click, choose run as administrator
- Type “netsh winsock reset catalog“, press enter
- After that, the system will ask you to reboot the computer. Reboot it.
And after reboot, everything back to normal.
