    Yes it it is possible to do a reset Winsock application but it’s not the only way where the issue will be resolved because the issue can be for some other reason too. Just follow the below steps to do the reset of Winsock catalog,

    STEP 1: Open the Command prompt in Administrator mode.


    STEP 2: From the charms bar search -> Type in “cmd” -> Right click on the command prompt-> Select Run as Administrator.


    STEP 3: Type in the command as “netsh winsock reset” (without the quotes) -> Select Enter.


    STEP 4: Just restart your Windows 8 PC once after following this steps.

    resetting winsock will help you to stay away from torjans and may also increase speed of internet..
    to do this, follow this procedure

    Go to the Start menu
    Press the Windows logo key win + Z to open the app commands.
    Press Enter to select All apps.Use the arrow keys to navigate to the 'Command Prompt' tile.
    Press the Application key to bring up the app commands.
    Use the arrow keys to navigate to 'Run as administrator' and press Enter.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password then type the password or provide confirmation.

    it may look like this

    Connectivity issue does depend on Winsock , true, but it is not the only reason or fixing winsock can fix all connectivity problems , it,s not like that.

    Invoke charmes bar SEARCH, type cmd and press enter.
    Right click on the COMAAND PROMPT and select Run As Administrator, and press enter.
    Type netsh winsock reset and press enter.

    Check the internet connectivity using a diagnostic software.

    Check virus infection.

    Remove temporary files, downloaded temp files, browsing history, cookies, and clean the system.

    Check the Browser and Add-ons remove any add-on which might create problem.

    Without a doubt the item you possibly can start a reset to zero Winsock software however it isn't the only way where situation are going to be resolved because the situation might be for some additional cause too. Just continue with the listed below techniques to undertake the reset to zero of Winsock directory,

    Available the Get quick with Officer mode.

    In the necklaces clubhouse lookup -> Type “cmd” -> Perfect click the demand prompt-> Decide on Manage seeing that Administrator.

    Enter in the demand seeing that “netsh winsock reset” (without the quotes) -> Decide on Enter.
    Just reactivate the Windows 7 8 PC once right after following this steps.
