Best Troubleshooting Commands For Windows 7

Windows 7 Command Prompt

Troubleshooting can be frustrating at times, especially for a person who uses computer just for the sake of having fun. Fixing Windows 7 bugs may give you a difficult time. If you work somewhere, as a software technician then this post can do a lot for you. Let’s look upon some major and mostly used commands for troubleshooting Windows 7 issues.

1) “Ping” away all your network problems!
Ping is the most common command to diagnose the network issues. The command can be really useful when it comes to TCP/IP connectivity. All you need to do is run the below mentioned command, followed by the name and IP address of the desired host:

ping 192.168.1.1
This command works only when Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) traffic is permitted to pass between the two hosts. Firewalls usually cause the command to fail.


2) Verify all your Files using Digital Signature
System integrity can be verified through digital signatures of the system files. Windows 7 offers an intelligent File Signature Verification tool in this regard. Just enter the following command to launch the tool and make a final check to your system’s integrity within just a blink of an eye:

sigverif
 
3) Look for NSlookup!
Facing issues with DNS name resolution? Here is what you might be looking for. Run NSlookup against a host name and see how it sorts out the correct name for your DNS server. Use the below command along with the host name and get your DNS problems solved at the earliest:

nslookup dc1.contoso.com

Microsoft does the best to facilitate its users with convenient options, just like they did for troubleshooting. All you need to do is, run the troubleshooting commands, and follow the subsequent instructions.
