    I'm just wondering, what does netsh winsock reset do? Does it turn off your antivirus/firewall? Does it change my internet settings? I am borrowing a friend's PC right now and some programs do not work well, so I was told to use the command 'netsh winsock reset'. I don't want anything major to be changed because this is not my computer.

    Thank You for any replies!!:)
