TCP/IP stack Winsock settings in Windows Vista may get corrupted, causing errors and problems with Internet connectivity. Corrupt Winsock or Windows sockets configuration can be due to a lot of reasons such as installation of a networking software, or due to virus, trojan or malware infection, or sometime even due to disinfection of spyware by security software.

When Winsock corrupts, the networking errors that you may face include unable to surf the Internet with Page cannot be displayed error message
in Internet Explorer or AOL even though the DSL/ADSL/cable Internet connection is connected. Sometimes, Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service is terminated as well.

3. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.

I'm not sure how you're applying it Claud, (I know it's often used to remedy
a firewall error and often after spyware has screwed the firewall up), but
you may want to look at:

The command for Vista is Netsh Winsock Reset. You can also use this Winsock
Repair Tool (Should Work for Vista):

If you want to see all the switches, just type "netsh /?" (lose quotes) at
an elevated command prompt.

This also should apply to Vista:
