Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
Do you know WHICH protocols are missing by chance?
Have you done all your windows updates for windows 10?
Have you tried to RESET your Winsock settings?
Press Windows key on the keyboard, On the search field type Command prompt. Right click on Command prompt and click on run as an administrator.
Click yes on User Account Control prompt. .
Type netsh Winsock reset in the prompt and press enter.
This command will reset the Winsock, if you get any error message while resetting, please provide me the details.
okay, what type of machine do you have?
By that, i mean....what is the make and model of your computer?
If it is a custom built, then i need to know your network adaptor make and models instead.
You may be missing certain info for your network adaptors, due to Windows 10.
Did you UPGRADE to Win10? Or....did this machine COME WITH Win10?
I pulled the BELOW info from HP's support site, and they are basically saying.....That the way you are supposed to get all your drivers that HP tests to officially work on Windows 10, is from the Windows Update tool. If after using the Windows UPdate tool, and your computer is still not performing properly, you are now at a crossroads......GO BACK to your previous OS (Windows 8, or Windows 7) .....or....WAIT until there is a driver/fix/patch/SOMETHING TO FIX THE ISSUE.
Thank you HP for being so ready for windows 10.
See the issue is, that when this computer was made.....Windows 10...did NOT exist....and therefore could never be 100% fully tested BEFORE being released. So....my suggestion....if the issue you are having (WinSock Error issues) are not allowing you to use your ocmputer fully.....is to GO BACK to your previous OS. After all, its really not the end of the world......the previous OS is tested to be 100% fully workable......so, stick with it.
Info FROM HP Site....and image taken to prove.
For computers sold after August 2013 with compatible hardware, HP has tested and approved specific software and drivers to support Windows 10.
If your computer is not tested by HP or software and drivers are not available on the HP site for Windows 10, use Windows Update in Windows 10 to get the latest software and drivers. HP and the other hardware manufacturers of components in your computer will release updated software and drivers in Windows Update when they are tested and approved.
HP does not guarantee the functionality or availability of drivers and software in Windows Update.
