I used the above to address an issue with iTunes hanging when accessing the iTunes store. I was wondering what it does etc etc. Thanks

As I understand it it's part of the OS that communicates with network services. So although the tcp/ip is OK winsock can become corrupted so the OS can't communicate correctly and the browser shows unable to show this page, or similar. Can become corrupted when uninstalling or installing programs, especially burning software for some reason. The reset command sets it back to default.

Hi and thanks for the reply,so using this command doesn't effect the security or the Internet connection of the pc? Thanks again
