Fix Netsh Int IP Reset Access is Denied

I found myself trying to fix some IP and network packet related issues on a Windows 10 PC recently and ran into an issue where when trying to do netsh int ip reset I get an access is denied error.  So I did some digging and was able to find online a registry change that was able to resolve the issue and then rebooted my computer after.  Here are the steps if you want to try and fix your netsh int ip reset access is denied issue that may be plaguing you.

First you need to open up Regedit as administrator, search for regedit and right click and run as administrator.

Then you will want to drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nsi and open up the folder, note you may see several other folders under here that look similar.

Then open up the subfolder named {eb004a00-9b1a-11d4-9123-0050047759bc} and I will be honest, I had many folders with very similar keys here so I opened them all here.

Now look for a sub folder called “26” and then right click and select permissions.  Then make sure you give permissions for “Everyone” with full permissions.

Then close regedit and click on start > run and search for CMD

Right click on CMD and open as Administrator, then type netsh int ip reset and hit enter. Now you should see the following results:

Hopefully this helped, combined with netsh winsock resets this can fix most network issues your laptop or PC may be having.
