You were all very helpful fixing my wife's computer (thank you etavares!) but now mine is acting up.

I'm running Vista Home Premium on an Acer Aspire E380 with 2GB ram. Whenever I have to restart the computer, e.g. for an update, I lose my network settings. No internet, no printers, even the Windows Activation code is missing. I'll run sfc /scannow and after 10-15 minutes it shows that there are no problems - but everything is restored again!

Any suggestions?

I lose my network settings

What do you mean loose your settings? Is the intermittent problem on wired or wireless connection? Have you tried resetting the modem/router and trying different LAN ports and cable?

I have a small home network (3 computers) two of which are wired and a 3rd (a notebook) wireless. My wired desktop is having the problem. It's not the router or cable. Every time I do a restart I lose internet connectivity and none of my printers show up. When I right-click the network icon on the toolbar it tells me that I'm not connected to a network (there's a red x on the icon.) When I right-click Properties on My Computer, it does not show the Windows Activation key. Only when I run the sfc /scannow command does everything return to normal. The scannow.txt file is blank which would appear to indicate that there were no problems but clearly there is something wrong.

Hello and welcome..
For the connection try these...

Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.
Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.
Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.
Now check if the internet is working again.

OR

Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Reboot your system to complete the process.

If needed : type these one line at a time, press enter after each line. See if it works after each.


netsh interface ipv4 reset
netsh interface ipv6 reset
ipconfig /flushdns


WIN7.. Please Download this file, Click Me
Right-click on winsockfix.bat and click on Run as Administrator.

Nothing worked. The proxy box was not checked and none of the netsh commands had any effect.

Only the sfc /scannow command worked

So you are saying SFC fixed it?

SFC fixes it but when I do a restart the problem comes back and I have to use sfc again.

I just ran some updates and the last restart went OK. Maybe the updates resolved the problem????

Start-up services default settings may have been changed. Such as DHCP Client or WLAN autoconfig. These two should be on automatic. Can you check these by typing service.msc (Enter) in your Start - Search programs and files box?

DHCP Client was on Automatic, and I changed WLAN to be the same. No change. I restarted once and it was fine, but the second time I restarted I lost connectivity again and had to run scannow.

If you are logging in by a user account, try creating another one. The former could be corrupted.
