I'm trying to ping a local server. Notice that certain bits of information are missing as well as gibberish after ping statistics. I've never seen this. I get strange results both on wi fi and wired. ping capture

If another user logs onto that same machine does the issue still happen? Is this effecting just one machine?

Right ok so that narrows the problem down to being local

Try this

Go onto a working machine> copy CMD.exe, CMDext.dll, cmdial32.dll, cmdkey.exe, and cmdl32.exe.

Then paste them onto the problem machine

Another thing to try is a Startup Repair.

I'm also getting "no resources" after doing a tracert to my local servers. What does that mean? I think this is all related. I can browse on the web but can't get ping responses to sites.

I did but no luck. However, I did two things:

>arp -a
and ........... netsh winsock reset

One or both of these fixed the problem. thank you for your help.
