how.pnghere's my line settings , how much speed will i attain from the 16Mbps ?
I have an issue that keeps popping up in IE 11 on Win 7. System is full patched. When I try to download a file from any site the filename automatically changes to the below or similar. When I select save I get an error the file cannot be downloaded. I have done the usual scan the system, reset IE settings, cccleaner etc and made sure do not save encrypted pages to disk but I still can't get it working. Other browsers are fine.

Hey guys,

I have a RDS server 2012, and i cannot adjust the Security Levels from the Internet Zone in IE from "High"

IE ESC is off and i am an admin on the server.

What is causing this?
I look for a C source code  for an SMTP interface, i.e. for sending/receiving formated mails. Would someone know a stable code that I could compile on the various OS?
Thank you !
See attached image from firefox IE Chrome complaining about certificate issues. and does not connect.

Has kaspersky installed. I disabled it, and did not help.

I check do "not" scan encrypted sites, it help for a little time but now the issue is back.
a friend has cablevision optonline home internet service with dynamic DHCP.

She's been using Windows Live Mail on her windows 7 machine to access her optonline (OOL) and gmail email accounts.

About a month ago, she wasn't able to send mail with Windows Live app using the optonline account: the OOL server wouldn't accept the mail.  And when she sent from gmail to OOL users via live mail app, it was blocked by Cablevision.

When using the gmail and OOL webmail, everything worked perfect. Calling OOL tech support they said one of her machines was infected with malware and they blocked her outbound sending ability.

we had checked her machine and told them it was clean. OOL then removed the block they said.

The problem came back recently.  She had a number for OOL shared services which is a 2nd tier part of support it seems.  But they were no help, blaming winfdows live app for the problem.  We installed thunderbird with the same results.  It would appear that her IP address was on RBLs which is what we saw. But OOL said they don't use the RBLs that we saw she was on.

I had her turn off her cable modem last night and this morning when powering it on, she got a different IP address.  But that one is on several RBLs also.

Then I started checking other IPs in those ranges and those are also on RBLs

would anyone have any advice? Are OOL IP address ranges automatically on some RBLs?  I can't see why or when these IP addresses were put on the RBLs.

or someone …

Helping a friend who uses gmail and outlook 2013.  Normally I set that up with POP in outlook.  People talk so highly of imap but I view it as a cheap unreliable alternative to Exchange.  Am I wrong?

He has dozens of folders in gmail with 1 to 100+ emails in each.  'Something' happened and all the folders are still there but the emails are gone in both outlook and gmail's web interface - it said he was using very little of his 15GB.  They went missing about 1 month ago - he noticed it and then went away for a month.

>>> How would you go about getting them back?  Contact Gmail support? do they really do that for you?

I looked in deleted folders in outlook and on the website and didn't see them.

I played with old OSTs I found as part of previous versions and copies of the OST.  Exported them into a PST and have a lot of emails now.

I deleted the account in outlook, created a new one for IMAP for the gmail account.

I imported the PST of the recovered emails into outlook.  they populated outlooks folders, but NOT gmail on the web/server.

I started over (delete the IMAP account and recreate it).  I opened the PST of recovered emails and drag / dropped folders from that into imap account in outlook.  That seemed to push things back to the server.

But a couple days later now, he says some folders are missing (from both outlook and web interface).

I opened another copy of the PST of recovered emails and dragged the missing folders back into the imap …

I have had a number of issues of this email address NOT receiving emails I sent.


I want to get rid of the Outlook security alert. The alert says: The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

We have on-premise Exchange 2010. The SSL certificate is issued on the external domain name but the internal domain name is different than the external one.

How can this alert be suppressed or removed?

Just happened to be checking my laptop AVAST firewall settings today,   and I totally by chance happened to spot something that I had never seen before,   and for which I have no idea to how long my computer has had this setting.    i.e. AVAST firewall setting states that my computer is currently connected to  "a firm which is a direct competitor" followed by the type ofEthernet Controller being used  (which upon a run of BELARC I have confirmed that the Ethernet Controller is the actual driver that my laptop is using).
Also,   it should be noted that I am using ATT DSL service.

Is this likely to be a clerical error of some kind by ATT?      

Or is this something which might be more sinister, and for which I should seek professional security review.     And if the likelyhood  of it being something sinister are high,  then what type of independent security expert should I be looking for??

It does not seem to me to be a good idea of contacting ATT about this,  UNTIL AFTER I have gotten confirmation from an independent expert.

I look after a small company with 10 workstations on Windows 7 and one server running 2012 Essentials.

The company contacted me to say that the internet was slow and it was affecting emails. They had been in touch with the internet supplier who told them that it was due to upload saturation and something was uploading 4 gig an hour since last Thursday night.

After getting them to switch everything off overnight - except the modem/router - the uploading stopped. It seems only when the server is re-introduced does the problem re-appear.

The server isn't using any cloud backup and all emails are dealt with by Exchange Online. It is essentially a DC and file server.

I am suspecting bitcoin mining or botnet but I would be grateful for any ideas and/or potential solutions.

I am going to see the company later today so will see if I can find anything out but any suggestions in the meantime would be warmly welcomed.

I am looking forward to create a completely free forum which I need to use for a few months. It will be used by less then 10 members and it is totally for personal use, therefor absolutely no marketing or SEO type of features etc. are needed. I was suggested that I should think about using some Blog etc. for this, but I still want to go for Free Forum Experiment first.

I just need to have a feature in the forum, where I can create a separate section, which is NOT VISIBLE to the general public, and which is available only the registered members, who have been given access to that section. For example, few forums have an Administrative Section etc. which is visible only to the Administrators and not to other members of the forum. I want that feature as a must, otherwise I will not be able to use it for my requirement.

I do not need any custom domain, or any other fancy stuff. Just plain vanilla forum with very basic features will suffice for my needs.

I have found these 2 -

If you are aware of any more, then please suggest.

It should be easy to setup and totally free. The number of users would be less then 10. No Advanced stuff needed, just a separate section, which remains hidden from general public.

Thanks a lot
Here's the situation. My company recently purchased Topaz ClipGems for our end users to use when having members sign documents that are accessed on a third party's website that is only compatible with Internet Explorer.  Virtually all of the ClipGems were deployed and are functioning without issue, however there are a few that aren't working. When they access the website to sign documents it says that no signature capture device was detected. After literally weeks of troubleshooting, uninstalling and reinstalling the software and copying configuration files from working computers with no luck I finally broke down and called Topaz to get their assistance. After a couple of hours we discovered that if we right click on IE and select 'Run as an Administrator' that the ClipGems worked just fine.

Unfortunately, in order to Run IE as an Administrator you either have to be an administrator on that computer, which we don't want our end users to be, or we need to be able to enter administrator credentials, which we don't want our end users to have. Let me also note that even when I try to get the ClipGem to work while signed on with my administrative credentials I still need to right click and select Run as an Administrator or I get the same error that the end users are getting and it won't work.

I'm one step away from just wiping the computers and starting them over from scratch, but before I did that I figured I'd attempt one more work around. I was attempting to write a …
I have a customer that was impacted by hurricane Matthew. He is at the mercy of his local Internet service provider which is currently down. He's running a exchange  on a Windows SBS 2011 server. I am looking for a quick solution to enable his office to retrieve the exchange mail coming in until their ISP can get their Internet service back up and running. He has a static IP with his ISP so I'm concerned about being able to set up cellular modem using dynamic IP address is from the cellular company. Not sure that that will work in his case open to suggestions to have to find a resolution quickly!

I want to generate a salesforce campaign with 4,500 members.

Do I really need to import this data?

The basic process of importing members seems to restrict me to uploading "one page at a time" and the maximum per page is 200.

Surely, I can generate the campaign for 4,500 contacts without having to do an import??

According to win 10 task master, I am receiving many bits by ethernet connection to the Internet ( and sending some). But no programs are running (lots of background processes) How can I find out where the activity originates.
We have recently had our website rebuilt., The Website developers recommended WordPress, which is what we went with.
When someone fills out a contact form or forgets their password the site would send us or the user an email. This worked for the first month or so but recently some users have complained their emails are not arriving for lost passwords resets, and we are not receiving notifications from the site anymore.
The hosting company assures us that the emails are being generated and leaving the site, so the website developers say it is not their issue, as far as they are concerned things are working and emails are being generated.

The hosting company recommend sending email via SMTP instead of directly from the site. What would be the best method/service to accomplish this?

The SMTP service would need to be secure so that would need to be a consideration.
