Solution to Windows 7 unable to connect to Windows Service

I encountered the following error after connecting to my DSL modem which failed to connect to internet.   I had a disruption of service from my service provider.

After the windows started up, everything was working but the task bar was all white.   I am using Windows 7 Starter edition.

The solution is as follow:

  1. Click on Start button. 
  2. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box. 
  3. Right click on cmd.exe and Run Command Prompt as an Administrator. Allow elevation request.
  4. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key. 
  5. Restart the computer. 
The solution was found in one of the comments in this url.
