While launching Matercam 6 the error message "Invalid SIM found - error code 2" appears.

This error occurs even if Matercam 6 is launched with administrator rights and continues to appear even after Mastercam 6 has been repaired.

Mastercam 6 is loaded on a Windows 7 64-bit OS computer.

What can be done to fix this issue so that Matercam 6 will be able to successfully load?

A Windows 10 computer displays the following prompt when Windows loads "This computer is configured to require a password in order to start up. Please enter the Startup Password below" (see the screenshot).

The user has forgotten the password.

We have already tried several startup options including booting into safe mode, performing repairs, etc. but have been unable to get past this screen.

If we click on OK nothing happens and if we click on the Restart button then the computer restarts.

What can be done to bypass this Startup Password or what can be done to uninstall the program or whatever else is causing this pop up to appear?

Had an .exe that needs to be run under a normal user rights login on a windows 10 machine. it keeps prompting for user account control for an admin username and password whenever the program is run. Attached is the current user account settings. If disabled "run all administrators in admin approval mode", the prompt will not show up.  Besides this options, what are the workarounds can be done to turn off the prompts? What is the disadvantages to disable the option run all administrators in admin approval mode?

Hi,

I restored a ghost image as a vitual machine. Then I had to repair it with XP sp3 CD.

The problem is when I log in windows tell that it must be activated. I can choose yes or no. If no the xp disconnect. If yes I have an empty desktop and nothing happens and I can't do nothing.

Other information, I can start in safe mode and have full access but activation doesn't work in this mode.

I need to stop Folder Redirection for 1 user on a Small Business Server 2003 installation. I've gotten half-way through the Microsoft article:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/888203/how-to-stop-folder-redirection-in-windows-server-2003-and-in-windows-2000-server

I've done the part where "redirect the folder back to the local userprofile location when policy is removed".  But, the next set of directions on modifying the security properties on the GPO properties doesn't match up with what I'm seeing in the SBS version of 2003.

The Folder redirection was apparently turned on as a default setting when the system was installed (years ago - and Yes, I know, 2003 is no longer supported, is a security risk, etc. - but that is a different problem that needs to be addressed).  The GPOs that exist are domain level and simply get applied to Authenticated Users.

In SBS2003 a user is found under the following tree of OUs: MyBusiness->Users->SBSUsers

NOTE:  There is another way of doing the second part of Microsoft's directions by putting the user in a new OU.  But, I'm not sure this is the best thing to do because It may also remove that user from needed GPOs.

ALSO: Roaming profiles are NOT used.

I would appreciate a specific answer (especially one that deals with the OUs of SBS2003 - not just 2003 in general) & not just a link for an answer.
