Please describe what exactly the option " Basic Repair" does in Malwarebytes AdwCleaner Posted April 1, 2019 Yes, that would be helpful. Thanks! I noticed that two basic repair actions are checked by default: 1. Delete tracing keys 2. Reset Winsock I am guessing that "Delete tracing keys" does some sort of registry cleaning, as "keys" seems to imply registry keys? I Googled "Reset Winsock" and got a few answers. It seems that command will remove any providers not included in "winsock,dll" by default, so you may need to install some things like USB network connections if you run that.
