Repairing Damaged Winsock2

The symptoms when Winsock2 is damaged shows when you try to release and renew the IP address using IPCONFIG.

And you get the following error message:

An error occurred while renewing interface 'Internet': An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.

Also Internet Explorer may give the following error message:

If you have WindowsXP with Service Pack 2, there is a one line command you can run to reset the winsock2 registry entries

There are two easy ways to determine if Winsock2 is damaged:

From the XP source files, go to the Support / Tools directory

Winsock Test Method 1

Run netdiag /test:winsock

The end should say Winsock test. passed

Winsock Test Method 2

  1. Run Msinfo32
  2. Click on the + by Components
  3. Click on the by Network
  4. Click on Protocol
  5. There should be 10 sections if the Winsock2 key is ok

MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip.

MSAFD NetBIOS [\Device\NetBT_Tcpip.

    Added 11/14/05

    There are a lot of things which can negatively impact how fast XP will browse network shares.

    One has been previously covered regarding browsing to Win9x computers.

    Other things you can try, especially when there is slow browsing to network shares with a lot of files:

    1. Remove current shortcuts in My Network Places

    2. Change the registry so shared folders on remote computers are not automatically added to My Network Places when you even open a document from that shared folder

    1. Start Regedit
    2. Create a DWORD value:
    3. HKEY_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer \ NoRecentDocsNetHood to 1.
    4. I have also seen setting the following help as well.

    HKEY_Current_User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ Explorer \ UseDesktopIniCache to 1.

    3. Increase the amount of data is buffered at one time to send to a client. On the computer with the shared directory:

    1. Start Regedit
    2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
    3. Create a DWORD Key called SizReqBuf
    4. Give it a value of Hex FFFF
