Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Is this true of one PC or all PC’s? Is it true only from inside your domain? Are any sites being blocked by your firewall or web blocking software?

===========
tracert uses ICMP just like ping. So, if any host along the path between the source and destination is blocking ICMP, you will see missing data at those points along the route.
