XP TCP/IP Repair is a free tool for Windows that can both reset the TCP/IP Stack and Repair WinSock LSP issues.

Now this has to be 'Tool of the Week' !

If not, then this **** is rigged :)

The title is a bit misleading, as it supports Windows Vista as well.

Portable ? No ..

But I did install it, and had a search through the files. It seems there is only an executable file in the Program Files, as well as the Uninstaller. As far as I can see, the uninstaller the just removes the schedules tasks (*.job files) that are set up during the installation.

I had a quick search through the registry. Couldn't find any entries in there either.

If someone feels like doin' a RegShot, then please be my guest :) I'm not 100% sure there are no registry entries; but a manual search didn't find anything relating to this program. (Although there are quite a few TCP/IP entries)

FYI, I copied the executable to my Thumb Drive and tried it on another box, the program initiated (although I didn't use it) so it seems to be portable.

What is wrong with putting the following in a BAT file and using it?

netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset c:\tcpip.txt

This is what I always use, seems to do the trick just fine.

I usually use WinSock XP Fix 1.2 (http://majorgeeks.com/WinSock_XP_Fix_d4372.html)

Been using it for 4 years or so and it works great.

Kinda sounds like Dial-A-Fix but obviously an up-to-date version. :)

Amen brother!

Sometimes the simplest tools to use are those that MS has given us. Plus, we don't have to worry about any of the other crap that some third party utility pushes on us.

(not saying I have seen anything bad from the suggested links, just that I know whats happening when I run an LSP repair from netsh)

I totally agree with you on this one.
