Reset winsock yea or na malwarebytes

I just run malwarebytes cleaner it didnt find any nasties but when the scan was finished the following message appeared "You may optionally want to run a basic repair which will reset winsock and other settings to their default values" so is it safe to do this and what does this message mean?

What is it for, is it to do with internet wi~fi?

Yes winsock is part of your settings to connect to your ISp but it will also rest default apps etc. which can be quite annoying when your programs no longer open with your favourite media player etc.
