Hi Troy,

Thank you for posting your query to us.


To answer your question,

netsh int ip reset is a command in windows to reset the TCP/IP. TCP/IP stands for transmission control protocol/Internet Protocol, it is a type of protocol used to communicate with other computers. If TCP/IP is not functioning then you would not be able to browse, even though if your computer is able to ping other Ip addresses and still if you are not able to pull up any webpages then reset the TCP/IP by using the above command.

netsh winsock reset is a command in windows to recover the computer from any socket errors which arise when you download some unknown file, or due to some malicious script on the computer.

Winsock settings contain your computer's configuration for Internet connectivity. Winsock errors can occur when the settings get corrupted, usually because of spyware or Web browser hijacking. If you are having trouble opening websites, it could be due to corrupted Winsock settings.

 

Hope this information was helpful. Please reply if you need further assistance or have any queries regarding windows, we will be glad to assist you.
