Does this work? I'm experiencing local only problem in Vista. I'm not a computer expert, so im a bit afraid to do something which may corrupt my system intirely. Is this the final solution to the problem?
Nothing is absolute, however after 9 hrs of browsing that day, this solution worked for me. None of the steps in my solution can corrupt your system anymore than those registry mods.
This solution worked like a charm for me. It also saved me the headache of formatting.
If anything, try running cmd prompt as administrator (rightclick on the shortcut and select "Run as Administrator) followed by entering "netsh winsock reset' followed by restarting your computer.
