Operating systems perform basic tasks, such as recognizing input from the keyboard, sending output to the display screen, keeping track of files and directories on the disk, and controlling peripheral devices such as disk drives and printers. For large systems, the operating system makes sure that different programs and users running at the same time do not interfere with each other. The operating system is also responsible for security, ensuring that unauthorized users do not access the system. Operating systems provide a software platform on top of which other programs, called application programs, can run.

[Webinar] How Hackers Steal Your Credentials

Do You Know How Hackers Steal Your Credentials? Join us and Skyport Systems to learn how hackers steal your credentials and why Active Directory must be secure to stop them.

Is it possible, via batch/vbscript/powershell to read or view the results of the monitoring tests from the Windows DNS applet?  Referring to the section where you can do a simple and/or recursive test and get a pass or fail for each test.  Is there a way - OTHER than from inside that window - to view the results of those tests?  I have scoured event logs and everywhere else I can think to look, but have not found where the OS stores those results.

All,

I have an older machine (older I7 Processor, 12 gigs of RAM)which I am going to give to the kids to use and destroy. Before I do I wanted to upgrade the Bios and OS most likely to Windows 10. What do I need to upgrade the bios? Is there a tool/software that will assist with getting the information I need?

Had a Windows Server 2008 crash, had to reinstall OS.
We're trying to get a basic website that was on the server back up & running. Reinstalled IIS7, created website w\same name as previous. Pointed to previous data directory. Web browsers can get to default.html at the root of the directory, but once we go into subdirectories, are getting "404 - File or directory not found. The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."
The directories and files exist; wondering if it's a permissions issue?
We've tried granting ServerName$ permissions on the subfolders, but still getting 404 error.

Newbie here.

I am trying to set up shares from both windows and Kubunu to allow data transfer......
My attempt at setting up a share in Kubuntu using Konsole, has resulted in a "shareFolder" in the desired location. I have set an smb password - all good.
Have "checked" the folder settings using the Kabuntu GUI and permissions and sharing seem to be set OK.
However from windows - can see and map to the folder - permissions (using the username / password combination) set up - fails to authenticate.
Set up a shared folder in Windows - but Kubunu does not see the folder when I am try to "map or discover" from Kubuntu.
So two issues here.
Windows to KUbuntu - permissions issue - as I see it,
Kubuntu to Windows -probably needs to be re-set up.

Running Win10 - latest
Kubuntu - older(??) flagging an Os update - though this is probably irrelevant in this scenario.

Any wizard out there willing to take on this onerous task?
All assistance gratefully received.

Client's PC. Dell. Win 10 (originally upgraded from Win 7).

Comes up with the typical error "Automatic Repair" "Your PC did not start correctly"

I have tried three available restore points and the Advanced Options "startup repair".  No success.

Can't think of anything else to try, Apart from the Windows Reset option, but then the client loses all programs, although the data will be retained. Any ideas welcomed.

Yeti Cooler, Amazon eGift Card, and Movie eGift Card!

A customer brought in an HP Laptop. The issue as described by the customer: The laptop randomly shut down one day, when she turned it on said that the OS was missing files required to boot. The customer proceeded to do a recovery. When the recovery was finished the computer turned on and had an error related to heat/ CPU fan (I saw this error when I first turned it on at my shop). The laptop would continue to not load into windows.

My process:
I first opened up the computer and cleaned all of the dust and hair compact that was in and around the fan and heat sink prohibiting the computer from properly cooling (there was a significant amount it). I removed the heat sink itself, cleaned both it and the processor, re-applied fresh heat sink paste, re-assembled the computer. I did a fresh installation of Windows 10 - installation completed successfully, booted into Windows as would be expected. Proceed to do windows updates, laptop randomly restarted and proceed to continue looping through the automatic repair. The issue seems a lot like hard drive failure to me so I removed the hard drive and tested it - it tested good. However, I was still suspicious and thought maybe hard drive so I installed a test hard drive, re-installed windows 10 - as before, the installation completed successfully. However, almost immediately got stuck in the loop again.

I am not getting any error messages. I am not sure if there could be some sort of intermittent power failure on the board - or…

Say, I've a senior citizen with a somewhat shaky hand.
Are there any mice specifically adapted for senior citizens with shaky hands?
It needs to be available in South Africa or by shipping at reasonable cost.

Voice Commands is another avenue to explore. The OS is Windows 10.
Can you send a good demo of how the mouse control would work?
Is the Google Voice device available in South Africa?

Hello there,

I"m reviewing the 802.1x's microsoft implementation to get handle on it  and consider its possible implementation in our environment. At this moment we don't have a domain, as a matter of fact we're mostly macs with no network os. I've been reading Microsoft documents and it seems to me 802.1x can be implemented without joining the computers to domain.  I've found quite a few hurdles as i keep reading and testing this so i figure it'd be a great idea to pick someone else's brain...
First, can i implement NPS in a non domain mac environment  environment? Should i consider open source for radius instead?
If any of you have implemented it, is there any lessons you would like to share with me as keep testing.

thanks for your help..

Hello Experts, I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 that I use to play movies for the kids.  It has been working well and playing movies with no issues for several years.
The OS is Windows 10 Home on a x64 processor.  
After a big Windows update, the DVD player will not play any of DVDs.  The error I get is "Unsupported video type or invalid file path."  I've done some searching but so far nobody seems to have a solution.  Any help would be appreciated.

Can someone recommend a safe Bit Torrent downloader for Mac OS X Sierra?  Previously the user has Utorrent, but MalwareBytes Mac 3  and Trend Micro quarantined them.

I told the user that the 'torrents' are where all the Ransomware for Mac seems to originate from, so they have been warned.  

Thanks.

Hi,
Today i noticed that Regional settings are different for different users in Server 2012 R2. One user Format : English (Singapore), while another user Format : English (United States). Is this default settings & normal behavior of OS? If yes, how can setup one common language for all users?
Note: I thought to apply GPO but have some job running in Service account. I'm not sure whether GPO will apply for those account. Please advise. Thanks in advance.

The three most common changes you will make to your website involve the look (themes), the functionality (plugins), and modular elements (widgets).

In this article we will briefly define each again, and give you directions on how to install them.

Hi, I am learning server-side stuff.. I was curious if there were anything for Linux or BSD when it comes with Active Directory? I mean the whole shabang. User Administration, Network storage, local domain, etc. What is a good alternative?

I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite S55. Recently the hard drive crashed BIG TIME.  Obviously I'll need to replace it.

I hate to say this, but it seems that I do not have a backup for everything on the drive, just programs and data that I saved to an external hard drive.

The computer came with the Windows 7 built-in, no installation disk.  Is the OS ON the crashed and worthless drive or is it stashed away someplace else on the computer so recovery is possible? There's a permanently attached label on the bottom with a Microsoft product key on it.

Sometimes while Windows 10 computers are connected to the Wi-Fi within an office I work at they are not able to detect any of the network printers which are all on the same subnet while the Devices & Printers wizard is searching for them.

This happens even though utilities like the Advanced IP Scanner are able to detect these network printers and even though these network printers can be pinged using their IP addresses.

What can be done to fix this issue so that these network printers can be discovered?
