    Launch run from your start menu and type the word "cmd" in the open box.in order to get the command prompt.When the DOS screen comes up, type "netsh winsock reset." Press "Enter." Type "exit" to close the DOS window and go back to Windows.
    enjoy........

    Most of the Internet connectivity problems are due to wrong Winsock because of the installation of a networking software, or Malware attack. he packets won't transfer back and forth even if you connected to internet int his scenario
    WinSock XP Fix is a tool to resolve the issue..
    netsh winsock reset catalog resets the Winsock catalog to the default configuration. While use of this command can restore network connectivity, take attention while doing this since any pre-installed LSPs will need to be re-installed.
