    @chev65, you might consider noting that Norton and a number of other programs are starting to find IPResetALL.exe as a trojan of some sort, so someone wanting to use the program might have to tell their antimalware program(s) to ignore it. I've been using it for more than a year with no problem from Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware or NIS, but Norton "discovered" it a few weeks ago as Trojan.Zeroaccess.C. VirusTotal has 11 out of 52 scanners finding some kind of risk: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/2...8eed/analysis/

    It's only picking up the advertisement that runs for the .bat to .exe converter, the little ad only run's in DOS. It's perfectly safe, Norton will pick up just about anything that isn't registered with Microsoft, that file has fixed more machines than Norton ever will but thanks for letting me know.

    I am going to be "that" guy and dredge up an old post due to its relevance vs making a new one while making my first post lol.
    Hope that is OK?

    My wife's PC running 8.1 with a WiFi USB adaptor is now giving me the dreaded "windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings", worked fine yesterday and nothing changed or installed.
    I have done everything to no avail.
    System Restore = No Change
    Reset Device via disable / re-enable = No Change
    Tried different USB ports and 2 different WiFi dongles = No Change
    Scanned with Malwarebytes = No Change
    Run CMD as Admin and winsock & ipv4 (get the same error as the user who posted a pic of it did - access denied) = No Change
    This is where I cannot seem to gain full control in the security tab for netsh.
    I only get read access and no ability to check anything off thus I am getting the access denied error when trying to reset.
    Only trusted installer seems to have that access.


    I am pretty well versed in computers when it comes to both hardware and software troubleshooting however I am even at a loss for how this happened and how to correct it.
    Any help is appreciated!
    Cheers

    I'm sure some of you may know this but I've been going nuts for almost two weeks because my brand new HP Pavilion Laptop 17-f136ds Wi Fi sucked even after I dumped McAfee and disabled all add-ons.

    I read everywhere to fix the limited Wi Fi signal strength just reset the TCP/IP stack using the elevated command netsh interface ipv4 reset but I got: Resetting, Failed / Access is Denied / Resetting, OK / Restart the computer to complete this action..... but even after reboot nothing was being reset until I ended up on this page and this registry fix seems to have done the trick. (I hope, or it's back to my Gateway Windows 7 laptop)

    I looked into that and could not edit the permissions, I am an admin with full rights on my pc. Please help.

    Hello arcieus, I'm not sure if you're trying to do the reset I posted a link too but if so, have you tried...

    In the left pane of this location, right click on the key 26 and select Permissions. This will give you following window: (Attachment # 3) ...In the above shown window, click for the single group listed there i.e. Everyone, you have to provide permission of full control by putting a check mark against Full Control option.

    Have you tried running the sfc/scannow command?

    Please post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all if you are still having problems after that.
