PING: transmit failed, error code 1232

After using Internet Download Manager for close to 48 hours, I face this problem after a restart

Problem:

C:\Users\Tan>ping 4.2.2.2

Pinging 4.2.2.2 with 32 bytes of data:

PING: transmit failed, error code 1232.
PING: transmit failed, error code 1232.
PING: transmit failed, error code 1232.
PING: transmit failed, error code 1232.

Solution:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]
Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Users\Tan>netsh winsock reset

After which, just do a restart and your network will be back to normal.

Hope this helps someone out there…
