I go to random website failures and the initial message tells that some protocols are missing. When I click 'fix it' and it changes to cannot fix, "windows sockets registry entries are missing".

I found this article about the very same error "windows socket registry entries missing according to diagnostics" but none of the proposed resolves worked for me. I tried to delete windows sockets registry and i faced the new error "This program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator" .

Anyone have any ideas?

Press the windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png  and the X key to open the Windows Mobility Center menu.

When the menu opens select Command Prompt (Admin), this will open the Command Prompt with Administrator permissions.

Copy and paste the commands below one at a time and pressing Enter after each command is pasted in.  After the first command you may be asked to restart the computer, ignore it and go on to the second command.

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ip reset

Close the Command Prompt and restart the computer.

If the problem still persists, you need to delete Winsock keys from registry and reinstall TCP/IP.

First, you need to delete Winsock Registry

1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

2. Locate Winsock and Winsock2, delete them


After deleting Winsock Registry, you reinstall TPC/IP
1. Go to Network and Internet > Network Connection. Right-click it and select Properties.

3. Choose Protocol in Select Network Feature Type window and click Add to open Network Protocol window.

4. From the Local Area Connection or Ethernet connection property sheet, click the Install…

5. Choose Protocol in Select Network Feature Type window and click Add to open Network Protocol window.

6. Click Have disk…

7. Type C:\windows\inf and click OK.

8. Click OK to save changes

You need to be aware that if errors are made in the process of editing the registry it can render you computer inoperable.  I would highly recommend using a program like Tweaking.com's Registry Backup.

 

To backup the registry please download and install Tweaking.com Registry Backup.

Play the video below for operating instructions.
