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.

First time asking a question.
Basically im having an issue at my school district. I have many Vlans that are internal "Same Building". My DFS Servers are on Vlan 5 "IP 10.0.0.0/21", and i setup the teachers to use Vlan 10 "Ip 11.1.0.0/19". They do connect to the dfs server but it is very slow. If i try to \\DFS\DFS it take upwards of 10 minutes to prompt me for a username or password. But if i \\IPAddress it will instantly pop up.
From Vlan 10 i can ping, remote desktop and everything inbetween to vlan 5. DFS is the only thing struggling.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hello -

I am trying to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection and replace with new AV within SCCM 2012. I have the install application for Symantec and new AV. The Symantec application should have a uninstall switch, however not sure how to double check that with .exe I have for Symantec. I have tried to run uninstall of Symantec with Uninstall.exe however no luck. I have also tried to run a batch file from my desktop with wmic product where "name like 'Symantec Endpoint Protection%'" call uninstall /nointeractive, however no luck.

A few months ago, I installed Dropbox desktop sync app on a Windows 2008 Std server. It was installed, and ran smoothly until few weeks ago when Dropbox service stopped working and prompted me to upgrade the version. Since then, Dropbox is not installing on that same server. Anytime, I am double clicking the installer, it is opening the statup window and the "disaapearing" .... without any error message

I understand, Windows 2008 is not a compatible OS for Dropbox... but not sure why the previous version worked at the first place? Now that, I have both new and old versions, both of them are not installing also no error message . Where can I find what's wrong going with the installation? Please advise.

Is there a way within Outlook 365 to find out individual Folder Sizes like there used to be in the older versions on Desktops. I can find no references to this online or at Microsoft Help.

We are a Charity within the UK and use the British Telecom Business Outlook 365 which means we aren't the Administrator (BT are) however we have problems often getting this through to BT and finding someone that knows what they are talking about in this connection!

I'm wondering if any of your members have the same setup and know how to get the sizes... Basically we are getting warnings that we are approaching maximum size (which I am surprised about as it is 50GB).

We have 100s of Separate folders and it would be so much easier if I can find ones that have large Attachments and delete them having copied the attachment to a hard drive first. Or any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in anticipation

Hey Experts,

We got a user whose Windows 10 Pro machine just started having all desktop icons flash, sort of a constant refresh. If you open up Windows Explorer the icons do but not the folders. Also the task bar icons do it as well. Everything seems to work ok but we cannot get it to stop. We uninstalled the Intel VId drivers and rebooted and that did nothing. Running SFC now, but looking for other options.

Every year we reinstall Windows 7 Pro on all our School's client computers. This year, for some reason I am having trouble making the connection to some (actually quite a few) of them. The error I get is "the connection cannot be completed because the remote computer that was reached is not the one you specified. This could be caused by an outdated entry in the DNS cache. Try using the IP address of the computer instead of the name." Since the IP addresses are dynamic I really need to use the computer name. How do I resolve this issue?

Thank you.

We are a growing small business with no formal IT department.  

As admin of the company, I need a way to remote into any of our machines (when turned on) at any given time (ideally discreetly), as well as be able to log into existing user accounts (without prior knowledge of password) and perform Administrator-level tasks.

Most of our machines are Windows 10 Home, and that is serving the purpose of our company.

We currently subscribe to LogMeIn Central (or whatever they're calling it now) and it's a) expensive and b) easily disabled by the end user.  This is not so much a trust/concern issue with staff as it is about being able to get into the machine at ANY time as needed, if for some reason needed in an emergency.

Appreciate any insight. Thanks!

Hello All,

I am having issues creating an image using Acronis True Image 2013 for the new Dell Optiplex 5050 with Windows 10. First, the operating system will not boot if i take Secure Boot and UEFI mode off. I am unsure if this is the cause of the error i receive but when i am creating the image the error i receive is, "error creating file". I've made sure that the external drive that i am putting the image on is in the right file format but this is the first time i am encountering this error message. I've tried changing the settings in the BIOS but no setting changes seem to work.

Any help is appreciated, even if there might be a better way to image these machines.


Thanks!

I have three Mac users who are using Adobe CC Experience Designer, and are having problems sharing.  One of the users has posted this to the Adobe forum, but I'm wondering if anyone there can help.
"Hi:  I am a member of a 3-person Creative Cloud "Team" (not an Enterprise) and am unable to use the Share Online feature in Experience Designer. The problem started a few weeks ago after problems with our account setup/payment. We were moved to a temporary account and then supposedly back to our existing accounts, but under new login credentials. The sharing problem is very random and inconsistent. One minute I can share and my colleagues can't. Then they can share and I can't. Right now I have several XD files open on my desktop and some of them I can share and some of them I can't. Does anyone know what the problem might be. We have been struggling with this for several weeks now and are very frustrated!"

hi experts,

 I need to re-install the OS on a desktop machine that has windows 10 and it has office 2013 installed. How do I go about getting the product key for office so i can re-install it once the new OS is installed?

I'm trying to get RemoteFX to work on various Widows 7SP1 Pro and 10 Pro machines (for re-directing USB devices) connecting to a Windows 10 Pro VM. I've gotten the 10 Pro client machines to work perfectly, but I can't get the RemoteFX redirect option to appear under local resources when I open Remote Desktop on the Windows 7(SP1) systems. They are using RD 8.1 and Windows updates are current. I was able to get it working on a Windows 7 Enterprise client

What  do I need to set to get this to work?

I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?

My client has a Toshiba All-In-One running Windows 10 Home. A few weeks ago she encountered a problem during boot. It would hang during the spinning circle of dots phase. I found by accident that you could get it to boot to the login and hence the desktop by tapping a key, any key. I also found that it would boot into safe mode without a problem. I have scanned for viruses using Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpywarePro. The latter found about 2000 tracking cookies but neither found any actual malware. I have used Start -> Settings -> System -> Features and Apps to remove suspicious programs. I turned on boot logging and found that when the problem happened, driver dxgkrnl.sys was tagged as BOOT_NOTLOADED. During my work on this problem, the system began running extremely slowly but after some hours that seemed to clear up. I have run chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow  and both found no problems. When I left her office last time I left Tweaking.com's All in One Repair running but I haven't been back yet to see the result. Any ideas?

Our institution is part of a large active directory structure with multiple sites.

We moved many user objects from an OU within site 1 to an OU within site 2 and faced the following problem:

Large_AD
   - OU_Site_1
      - ...
      - ...
    - OU_Site_2
      - User_Object_Moved_From_Site_1
      - User_Object_Moved_From_Site_1_Copy
      - Computer_Object_Created_In_Site_2

Open in new window

When User_Object_Moved_From_Site_1 on logs on Computer_Object_Created_In_Site_2 we get a message in the desktop tray saying "Tray icon says "Not Connected - no connections are available". The system works slowly and explorer.exe keeps on crashing after a few minutes.

NotConnected.JPG
This happens with all moved users on all computers within site 2. Despite of those problems, accessing services and shares within site 2 works without any problems.

The funny thing is: When we copy the User_Object_Moved_From_Site_1 to User_Object_Moved_From_Site_1_Copy, we don't get those problems. All copied users within OU_Site_2 don't cause any problems.

Could it be possible, that moved user objects contain hidden connection information directing to servers on the former site 1, which are not accessible from site 2? Any ideas, how to fix this problem?

Thanks a lot and best regards!

I recently upgraded 10 computers from Office 2010 to Office 2016. The user regularly drag PDF files from an insurance program call hawksoft and drop them into Outlook to attach them to an email. Since the upgrade they can no longer drag straight into outlook from The Hawksoft program. User have to drag the file to their desktop and then drag drop into Outlook. Is this a security setting? I'm not sure how to fix this.

I have about 80 desktop users. Each has an APC SmartUPS.  We've never bothered connecting them via USB to the computers because we didn't want to contend with the PowerChute management software.  But this is no good. As it is, the way I usually find out that a battery is no good is when we have a power outage and someone's UPS fails. I need to get a better system than that :-)

Has anyone found a centralized UPS management solution? APC has a business edition of PowerChute, but it's limited to just 25 devices. What's up with that? I need a that could monitor and manage all of our UPS devices.

Someone should build a Raspberry Pi solution for this that connects to the UPS via USB and the network via WiFi.

Here's the situation:

We're a Citrix shop.  Most of our users launch XenDesktop session on iGel thin clients with multiple monitors.  That works fine.

I launch my XenDesktop the same way, but sometimes, I need to launch a XenDesktop session inside my XenDesktop session.  That is, I sit down at my iGel, launch my desktop (full screen, multi-monitor), then once I'm inside Windows, I log into Storefront and launch a different desktop.

I need that second desktop to appear Windowed, not full screen.  Right now, that second desktop opens full screen/multi-monitor, and I have to use Shift-F2 so that I can drag it sort-of-out-of-the-way.

The rub here is that I know that in the past, this worked fine.  I could open multiple XD sessions within Windows via Storefront Web and they would open in window-mode and I could minimize them while I worked.  Then, somehow, my Receiver decided that all my future XD sessions had to be full screen and I was borked from there on out.  Resetting my receiver doesn't help.

Any ideas?  I don't want to go editing delivery groups, master ICA files, or anything else that might effect most of my users' sessions.  I just want my sessions to launch in window mode when I launch them from my desktop receiver client.

Thanks!
Matt
