npm not working - "read ECONNRESET"

I'm having a problem with npm, I cant install anything. Here is the error messages:

C:\Windows\system32>npm install -g yo
npm http GET https://registry.npmjs.org/yo
npm http GET https://registry.npmjs.org/yo

Any idea why is this? Here are my network settings and it seems I dont have any proxy configured. I also disabled all the firewalls.

Answer

use

npm config set registry http://registry.npmjs.org/

so that npm requests for http url instead of https.

and then try the same npm install command
