hey zigzag thank you for replying my friend
i have managed to get rid over it after googlering much
this is what i have done:
Start in safe mode
logon as administrator
open cmd.exe
type: "ctrl - shift - enter" to allow elevation request
type in again "netsh winshock reset" and press enter
Then i restarted my machine and the problem was all solved.
