How to Clear NetBT

NetBT stands for NetBIOS (Network Basic Input/Output System) over TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and is a critical component of computer networking that allows for a set of basic commands to be issued across a network. It is used by programmers to provide consistent functionality between computers and for the discovery of network devices (http://www.techterms.com/definition/netbios). If you are encountering difficulty with your connection, clearing NetBT will reset all of your computer's active NetBIOS connections.
