    windows socket registry entries missing


    Trying to share some folders between two PC's on my network.
    I can in one direction but not in the other. And it's the other direction that I need it to work.

    The Issue appears to be the HTPC. When I run the network diagnostic tool on it I get,
    "one or more network protocols are missing on this computer" .
    I ran the trouble shooter for all the options under "Incoming connections" in each case it says the issue is resolved. However nothing has changed even after a resart. If you run the diagnostic straigt after the fix the error is still present so it's never fixed at all.

    I also tried
    disabling net bios of tcp/ip as per this recommendtion said Network Protocols

    running
    netsh winsock reset
    and
    netsh int ip reset
    with no change after a restart

    appears to be the same issue as mine with a possible solution.

    My only concern is that it requires deleting parts of the registry and i'm worried of the possible consequences.

    Is there no *.reg file out there that can fix this in a safer way ? Or another safer method to attempt this fix ?

    Use at your own risk. Always back up the registry.

    I tried the regedit fix you pointed to and when I try the final step to reinstall TCP/IP I get a new problem "Program is Blocked by Group Policy" which I then tried to solve various ways without success. As a result I re-imported the regedit changes and am back at square one.
