    traceroute problem

    I need to do some traceroutes to help diagnose an issue. However a particular windows 7 PC (64bit) refuses to do it. The connection is wired btw. The following happens when I try.

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>tracert -4 www.bbc.co.uk
    
    Tracing route to www.bbc.net.uk [212.58.244.71]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:
    
      1  General failure.
    
    Trace complete.
    I have already tried:

    1. allowing tracert in the firewall.
    2. running the command prompt as admin

    Have you tried doing an internal tracert? I.e your router?

    just had a quick google and it said try disabling the local firewall.

    There is no router. I would rather not run a Windows PC with no firewall when connected directly to the internet.

    There is a latency issue I'm trying to pin down. When it happens is random. So I would need to leave the machine running and connected without a firewall for several hours.
