Windows 10: netsh int ip reset gives "access denied"

  1.    25 Jan 2016 #1

    netsh int ip reset gives "access denied"


    W10 guest running on Fedora 23 in Virtualbox.

    Ok, I did something stupid. I deleted the Winsock entries in my registry without saving them first.
    Yes, cynical laughter is appropriate.

    However, after doing some frantic research, I found the following to restore things.

    Running powershell as administrator ...
    netsh winsock reset catalog

    That command returned no errors, and the Winsock and Winsock2 entries reappeared in my registry.

    Then ...
    netsh int ipv4 reset
    Resetting interface, OK!
    Resetting Unicast Address, OK!
    Resetting Neighbor, OK!
    Resetting Path, OK!
    Resetting , failed.
    Access is denied.


    Resetting , OK!
    Restart the computer to complete this action


    This last command, however, returned an "access denied" error.
    The last two "Resetting" lines look as though there is an attempt to reset nothing, because there is a blank in front of the comma.

    Needless to say, restarting the guest did not solve the problem, which is that I have no connectivity. I tried deleting the network device in device manager and rescanning, then deleting the net device and restarting, but that didn't help either.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks for the help!

    Following the steps in the video, I was able to "netsh int ip reset" with no errors, but I still get the following message when I try to connect the device named "Ethernet".

    "Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration Not Fixed X

    I'm on the verge of resetting the machine.

    Possible workaround


    I have had this access denied message on 2 computers. One had avast antivirus and after uninstalling avast I was able to reset top/ip stack with netsh command. The second computer had Windows defender . On that one, I ran:
    1. Netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt. Received resetting failed.
    2. Netsh windsock reset Successful
    3. Netsh Int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt Resetting failed, access is denied
    4. Netsh Int ip4 reset Resetting failed access is denied. There is no adapter to reset
    5. Ipconfig /all adapter had 169.254.44.34. Address
    6. Ipconfig /release all Operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation
    7. Ipconfig /renew adapter received valid address!
