winMTR is the Windows ported version of MTR or My Traceroute program. Developed by Appnor MSP, it is free to use.

Hit OK, after you’re done customizing, and enter IP in Host Field and hit Start.

This will create a list of hops leading to the destination IP and will show any packetloss as well as latencies to that destination.
