It appears that sockets are not working on your machine. Do you have a firewall, virus scanner or unusual networking configuration?
System.Net.Sockets.SocketException (0x80004005): A system call has failed
yes i had K7 total security,but i have uninstalled after encountering this issue.have malware bytes too but unable to remove that ,bcoz its uninstaller is corrupt.
Resetting your TCP/IP stack might help -
tried resetting TCP/IP ,but still facing the same.
I have also removed malwarebytes ,tried resetting TCP/IP by Microsoft fix tool & by CMD ,still no resolution
just a guess: Rename your C:\Users\afroz\AppData\Local\XamarinStudio-5.0 folder and try to restart your Xamarin Studio. The folder will be recreated with the default data. Of course all your Xamarin Studio configuration is reseted than. This workaround solved the hanging of my installation during the startup.
If my hint not helps, just delete the new created local app data folder and rename your old folder back. Your Xamarin Studio configuration should reappear...
