A desktop computer is a personal computer designed for use at a single location due to its size and power requirements, usually by one person. The most common configuration has a case that houses the power supply, motherboard, disk storage (usually one or more hard disk drives and optical disc drives); a keyboard and mouse for input; and computer monitor and printer for output. The case may be oriented horizontally and placed atop a desk or vertically and placed underneath or beside a desk.

[Webinar] Lessons on Recovering from Petya

Skyport is working hard to help customers recover from recent attacks, like the Petya worm. This work has brought to light some important lessons. New malware attacks like this can take down your entire environment. Learn from others mistakes on how to prevent Petya like worms.

I do not have an account yet. Where do I sign up?

I also have an iPhone 7. Once I register, do I download the app and just log in?

I need to share my desktop for a presentation, so hopefully, WhatsApp supports screen sharing, like Skype. I have a Mac and want to present a Powerpoint Presentation running in Windows 7 on Parallels.

For this to work, can I install WhatsApp on my Mac? Then, load Parallels, Windows and Powerpoint?

Or, do I need to install WhatsApp on Windows?

I have an activated Windows 10 Pro on a hard drive in a desktop. Windows update will not work.

So I went to Microsoft to get the latest which is the Creators version.

I tried updating online using the tool (didn't work with error 0xC1900200) and then making a .iso on DVD but it insists I am running Windows from a USB.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on?

Some of the users running Windows 10 on work stations have items they delete from their desktop and files they delete from their documents folders return the next time they log on.

I run a coaching and personal development business, and I have staff helping to run the coaching programs. All the coaching programs we run are videoed (so that we can keep records). We currently keep all the videos on many portable external hard disks. However the number of external hard disks has grown to an unmanageable number now and I would like to centralize the solution.

Requirements:
- Have at least 10 TB of storage space
- Backup capabilities available
- Restrict user access - configure user access for certain users to upload files to the storage but is unable to access/read/write to the storage
- Accessible remotely
- Less than $1000 cost over 3 years

I am currently thinking of setting up a dedicated desktop with owncloud.org. Does anybody know if this will work?  Or of a better solution that I can adopt?

Thanks

Folks,
Good evening to all. I have a desktop workstation and a new laptop, both pc's. I would like to be able to have the new pc "shadow" the desktop PC. This would be like the desktop pc would be the master and the laptop pc would be the slave. I do a lot of work on the desktop and would like the laptop to mirror the master. All I would like to do then is click on an icon that would then update the laptop from the desktop using wireless technology. Possible, and if so what would be some good software for this?

Hi guys

I've purchased an SSL certificate for an amazon EC2 instance. I am using SSH to connect to the instance.However, I can't copy the purchased files from my desktop onto the actual location /etc/pki/tls/private folder as it's almost certainly down to permissions. The username I am using is 'ec2-user'.

Any ideas how I can change the permissions so it will accept the copy? What permissions would you give it? And then have them set back again? As I know messing with these folders will probably end up with creating a host of other issues.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for helping

Hello All,

Trying to figure out how to do this... I have alot of VM desktops that run on my esxi 6.5 box that I use for outside sales/etc... I need them to be able to span the VM over both of thier monitors when remoting in... I have made sure that the client has the RDP option to enable use of all monitors but when they connect to their VM it just locks to 1 screen... Any ideas?

Thanks

Here's what I need...I need the 50,000 foot view of VDI, replicated between two sites.

I want to build a VDI pool using Horizon VIEW on ESX in data center 1.

I then want that VDI pool replicated to a second data center in another city.

I have 500 VMs to replicate and I need to know the best way to do this.

I'll be using ESX hosts and Horizon VIEW.  I need my 500 primary VMs in Houston replicated to Phoenix so if I lose my data center in HOU, I can easily failover to PHX and have my users using the same desktops that use in Houston.

Again, this is the 50,000 foot view.  Like tell me I need ESX, VMware VIEW, this and that and this and that.

In the end, I'd like Mary in Houston to be able to hit her desktop in Phoenix and get the exact same desktop.

I'll have plenty of processors, RAM and solid state storage.  It's the software for the HA site replication I'm having trouble with.

I'm looking at Veeam.

Thanks

I am using windows 10.  Recently, I have lost the ability to cut and paste URL's.  I was originally using a Logitech wireless keyboard mouse combination and it worked perfectly.  All of a sudden...about 2-3 weeks ago it stopped working.  I swapped out the keyboard for a USB Kensington keyboard and still have the same problem.  I am wondering what I should be doing to solve this problem and also why did it happen in the first place.  Copy and paste is one of the most useful keyboard options in the computer world.  Keep in mind that I have tried deleting the keyboard in device manager and then rebooting the PC.  It does not solve the problem.
Does this mean I have to purchase a new keyboard???
Thanks for your assistance,
