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.

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You
Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

I have a folder redirection GPO setup that redirects users’ desktops and my documents folders.
It redirects to a hidden share.  Share path is \\<servername>\RedirectedFolders$\<username>
‘everyone’ has full access to this hidden share.
The server is Server 2016.  The client pc is Windows 7 Professional.

Since the GPO took effect, doing a search in the redirected folders/subfolders on the clients machine immediately returns no results found.
A search conducted on the server itself returns results.
Offline folders are enabled.  I have deleted and rebuilt the indexes.  I made sure the user has ‘full control’ over the folder and subfolders.
Only the redirected folders return no results.  Non-redirected folders work fine.
How can I get the redirected folders to be searchable from the client pc?

For more than one year we are now running an RDS environment on Server 2012 R2, including RD Gateway for external access. The past few days some users had randomly issues when they tried to start a shared desktop from external. Error message see RDS1.png. Without any changes, a few minutes later the access is working fine. On the RD Gateway server I found an error which says that the client doesn't meet the requirements and will not be authorized (see RDS2.png). It is really weird as it's only sometimes this happens and it seems this happens only with clients which are not joined to our domain. Any idea what the reason could be?

I am looking for desktop imaging system recommendations. A little background, we are currently using Acronis but have outgrown it. I am looking into Quest Kace and SmartDeploy.

I am liking the features of SmartDelpoy much more and would prefer to have a more modern imaging system like that as opposed to Kace. I know there are other options out there like VMWare Workspace ONE, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, and CloneZilla.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these or would be able to recommend something better? We would prefer a cloud solution, if there is one.

We are having an issue with changing passwords through Remote Desktop Services. If a users password expires or is reset, they are prompted to reset by RDWeb. They must put in their current password, new password, and confirm new password. Upon clicking submit the webpage will process from as few as 5 seconds to as much as 15 seconds. This used to be instantaneous. No firewall/port changes have been made and the domain seems to be in good standing. All services are located within the same LAN and there are no apparent DNS issues present. The password does reset successfully but the time it takes to complete the job is concerning. Any ideas why this might be happening?

trying to setup one drive on a user's desktop and laptop. The desktop is syncing fine. The laptop however will not let me sync the pictures or documents. I get "Your IT administrator has set a policy that prevents changes to known folders, Please remove that policy and try again". I can't find a fix anywhere. What is more confusing is the desktop is synced completely and the desktop folder is synced between them. Just can't sync the pictures or documents in the laptop

Hi I have a client that has a Neat database from version 5.3.1 I have the nwdb file and the backup file.  I'm trying to setup neat and import that data for her.  I have the last version of the software before it went all online, but I can't figure out how to import the backup.  The Internet seems to be full of folks just like me that feel abandoned with desktop support.  

I/she doesn't want to go to the cloud, I just want to get the data back up and running.

thanks all

This would include image manager and CMD control the backup monitoring service. I cant find what is disabling  the services and therefore need some help.
Is it possible to prevent disabling the service in the registry or group policy like you see on internet security services. Any help on this is appreciated.

A client with a desktop running Windows 10 had his sound no longer works, just recently. The toolbar sound icon has a red X and says "No speakers or headphones plugged in". When he disconnects and reconnects his speakers he hears static so he is thinking that sound should come through the speakers. I have tried several things -
First I backed up the registry then created a System Restore point.

I ran built-in audio troubleshooter and check. Referring to the steps:
Press Windows Key + X..
Click on Control Panel.
Select Troubleshooting.
On the left pane, click on View All.
Click on Playing audio to run the troubleshooter.

I have uninstalled the audio device - Realtek High Definition Audio.
I have checked for updates.- I chose "Automatically" did not "Browse" - should I have tried that?

I also tried a YouTube suggestion
At the command prompt I typed in -
net localgroup administrators/add networkservice and hit "Enter"
net localgroup administrators/add localservice and hit "Enter"
Restarted the computer

Nothing is working. I would appreciate your help. His computer is available again tomorrow.
Thanks,
Mags

Hello Everyone,

              Within Windows 8, I did notice that the Start button which normally appears on the lower left hand corner is not present within the classic desktop.  That said, could someone provide the necessary steps for having it to reappear?

               Thank you

My computer keeps freezing or stuttering for about half a second. This happens after a couple hours of the computer being on and in use. It freezes every half a second actually, I don't know why this is happening and any help would be appreciated. I have updated my GPU drivers as well as checked for viruses and have found nothing. It doesn't just happen in file explorer the stutters occur in games as well, anything really. I clean my computer every couple weeks just to get the dust out of the system to the best of my ability. I've had my computer for just under 2 years, and the components in my computer are as follows:
CPU-i7-7700k @ 4.20GHz
GPU-1070 (MSI)
Ram-16gb DDR4 Dual Channel
Motherboard-MSI Z270-A PRO
128 Intel ssd
2 tb toshiba hard drive (SATA)
800w power supply
Windows 10 Home 64-bit
These are the most important parts that i can think that would be of any help, I have included i clip i recorded in shadow play of what the stutters look like in case anything like this has happened before. Thanks again to anyone who can help me with this and if there is any information that i have not included let me know please and i will try to update it.

Hi Experts!

Have this 2008 laptop (HP EliteBook 8540w Mobile Workstation) and need your help to determine what kind of SSD (hard drive) will it support as the primary.

Have tried to look at one of their documentation and came across this:

from HP documentation
Current SSD supports about 6GB/s, so is the upgrade will even make a difference if it supports speed up to 150BM/s?

Made changes to GPO yesterday, now cannot log in through RDP.  Get the message
"Other User"
To sign in remotely , you need the right to sign in though RDP Services.  By default , member's of the RDP Users Group have this right.  If the group you're in doesn't have this right, or if the right have been removed from the Remote Desktop Users Group, you need to be granted manually.

I've looked at Computer Config >> Windows Settings >> Security Settings >> User Rights Assignment >> 
"Allow log on through RDP Services"
"Deny access to this computer from the network"
"Deny log on through RDP Services"

I'm fairly certain i didn't change any other setting that would cause this,  not what the fix is.

Learn Ruby Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to Ruby, as well as teach you about classes, methods, variables, data structures, loops, enumerable methods, and finishing touches.

I have two new (as in out of the box new) ASUS P8H61-I motherboards.  I bought I7 processors and RAM and tried to boot one up.  They won't post video.  I have a green light on the MB and everything looks good, but I'm getting nothing on video and no beeps or anything.  The processor fan is working.  :)

What can I check?

Would the wrong processor stop video from posting?  Wrong RAM?  I would at least expect some beeps, but nothing, just a green light and a processor fan.

Thanks

HI -

A client's workstation running Windows 7 Pro desktop will not play any system's functions but it does make sound when the computer boots up and shuts down.  In Control Panel the sound app shows the system's sounds and the arrow is green - meaning it thinks it is working.  The sound is not muted, the volume is set to the highest and in Control Panel,  Under the Playback tab and Properties the sound works under the Advanced tab when it is tested then.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi - I'm looking to deploy a singup page and a self-service portal to my site, so clients (and prospects) can sign up and manage their Active-Directory based Managed Services (Hosted Desktop, Hosted IIS etc)

Is there anything anyone can recommend? It is something I am willing to develop myself, however, if a suitable "pre-fab" solution exists, then all the better.

Any recommendations greatfully recieved. Can be open source, commerical, github etc ...

Installing a new motherboard, Asus P8H67-M Pro, two of the eight mounting holes came with plastic plugs inserted in them.  These holes correspond to holes in the ATX case.  Should I remove the plastic plugs and use mounting hardware in those holes, or leave the plugs?
