I have had a couple of computers where the Internet seems to just stop. But this only seems to appear in Internet Explorer. I could access the internet through Firefox, and I could ping Google.

Simple fix

To fix this, I usually just leave the user with Firefox or Chrome, which isn’t the best. I managed to find a fix today, which involves the following command. Open up the run window, and paste the following command, then run it. First make sure IE is closed.

netsh winsock reset catalog

Restart Internet Explorer

Once you’ve run this command, open IE and everything should be wonderful with the world, as you go back to using a different browser.
