    winsock download from this site two years old, will it still work?


    We have two desktops connected ethernet cable to comcast xfinity all in one box. We pay for business speed. On my husbands 10 year old Mac he is getting almost 400, on my one year old windows 10 high end gaming pc at any given time I'm lucky to get around 200. I have done every single thing I could find to troubleshoot this. Now my question is I came across someone who posted a download a link to your forum with winsock and winsock2 which fixed the same problem he was having as me, but his post was two years old, and I was wondering if it will still work being things change so much so quickly. I am not knowledgeable in networking and have no clue what winsock actually does. Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. I realize that I will making backup copies of those keys, but really get nervous mucking around with the registry.

    :)

    Web Blocking for an 8 Year Old

    Your suggestions have not solved my problem yet. But, I first have a more basic problem.

    I went to the suggested site and then set up an account for my 8 year old son and signed him up for an email account as a family member. I received an email welcoming him to the family and he shows up in my family list. I turned on the age appropriate
    restrictions and listed cnn.com to block. when I go to his account, there are no restrictions at all. I can get to cnn.com and I can go to sites about **** for teens. What am I doing wrong? Is thee a setting I am missing?

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

  4. winsock download from this site two years old, will it still work?

    Winsock registry entries required for network connectivity are missing. How fun.

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:


    • Did you update the USB driver?

    • Did you check if similar issue persists when you connect the network cable to other device?


    You may be facing this issue due to the non-updated USB drivers. I suggest you to check if you are facing similar issue when connecting the USB cable to other devices.



    Method 1: If the issue does not persists, I suggest you to update the USB driver from
    Device Manager by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.




    • Connect the USB device, press Windows + X
      keys on the keyboard and select Device Manager.

    • Right Click on all the USB devices and select
      Update
      .

    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    • Close the window and check if the changes are effective.


    Method 2: If the issue persist, uninstall the USB drivers from
    Device Manager by following the steps below (make sure the USB drive is connected when performing the steps below):


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Device Manager.

    • Right click on the USB device driver and select
      Uninstall
      .

    • Restart the computer to reinstall the drivers automatically and check if the issue is resolved.


    If the issue persists, I suggest you to download the latest USB driver compatible with Windows 10 operating system from the device manufacturer’s website and check if the issue is resolved.



    Refer to the below link and check if it helps:
