A personal computer is a general-purpose computer whose size, capabilities and price make it useful for individuals, and is intended to be operated directly by an end-user with no intervening computer time-sharing models that allowed systems to be used by many people, usually at the same time. Personal computers may be connected to a local area network (LAN), either by a cable or a wireless connection, and through that to the Internet. A personal computer may be a laptop computer or a desktop computer running an operating system such as Windows, Linux or Macintosh OS.

Hello,

I am able to log in to a PC with the Admin account.  The PC name on the PC dropdown list is WS-19.  But when I log in, I check the PC name and it is WS-3.  How can I correct this?  Both PCs have different IP addresses,  the DNS Host record match the PC names to the correct IP address.

I have no Idea what could be causing this, should I un-join WS-19 and add it back to the domain?

Thanks!

I've embedded a Google Calendar into our web site.  It works beautifully on a PC, but doesn't display fully, and you can't adjust it, on a Iphone.  What changes to the following code would I have to make?

Greetings folks,

Have a PC used for RDP connections, it's a Win7 Professional (32bit) workstation with only the native RDP licenses so users boot the last session off whenever they need to connect in. The workstation is NOT on a domain and has local users only.

Since yesterday, all users come up with the same error, "The referenced account is currently locked out and may not be logged on to."
This is also true for the local Administrator account.
I'm unable to get physically infront of the PC so far so have been trying remote solutions including a restart through a 3rd party programme (Teamviewer), and trying to access the workstations 'Computer Management' console via another PC on the WORKGROUP, unfortunately I get an 'Access Denied' message when trying to edit User Accounts.
Any ideas on what I could do remotely to resolve this?
Or will I need to get physically infront? - and if so is there anything I can try doing beside a fresh install of the workstation.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,
I have a user account in one user OU which has blocked inheritance in Group Policy. The purpose of this account is to allow visitors to login but there it is quite restricted so they cannot do any damage. We are using Windows 10 x64 Enterprise and for some reason when this user account logs into a PC they receive a UAC message relating to the registry editor. I have tried applying a group policy to disable UAC but this does not work. I guess there is a process running in the background which is trying to start the registry editor but something is preventing this from running. We do set the proxy settings via group policy preferences using registry settings so maybe the message is being flagged because of this process.
Other user accounts in other OUs do not show this message so I am not sure what is causing this.
Thanks for your assistance.

Bloomberg terminal

What do you guys think?

I have the Verizon Cloud desktop app (for PC) installed but Verizon support said it only syncs one-way: from PC to Cloud. Anyone know of any 3rd party method to sync Verizon Cloud content back to my PC?
Thank you,

We have a 4 usb external hard drives need to connect them to our PC.  We have a usb hub with no ac adapter.  We were told that since there is no ac adapter on the usb hub, the small electricity supplied to the hub will nit suffice to power all the drives.

Our notebook has a USB which supply power.  We can power down the notebook and connect a phone to the usb port and it will charge.

Question, if we use a non-ac usb hub and connect it to the power usb of the notebook, will it be the equivalent of a ac-usb hub?

Please advice.

Good afternoon,

I was cleaning my PC and disconnected some cables to do so but I forgot to take a picture of the cables. /I did not realize there were 5 separate cables in the cluster when I pulled them.  Can anyone help me with this.  I do know that there are some ports labeled "POW LED" but I know that none of the cables go there.

I run a daily task which copies an overnight backup from one Dropbox location to another. The reason I get sent a few database backups to a personal Dropbox folder, and my task unzips this folder and sends the relevant backup files to several shared Dropbox folders, which are shared with my customers.

But the task to unzip and copy happens so quick that Dropbox doesn't have time to re-sync, because the PC has been off all night and is woken by this task.

So, is there any way of having another task run before my existing task which somehow allows Dropbox to sync (so it needs about 5 minutes max), then run my task?

I need remote access to two computers in my home office for about a month.  I will be traveling with a laptop (Windows 10) and need to remote into the two PCs back in my home location (both of these PCs are Windows 7).  What would be the best method (and most reliable/secure) for me to be able to connect to these two computers.  Your help is appreciated.  Thank you.

I have a computer that cannot effectively search for files.  This is a DELL optiplex 790, running windows 7 pro.  I have been able to resolve the issue, temporarily, by 'modifying' the 'indexing options'.  I have included her documents, and her desktop, in the 'indexing options', from the 'modifly' option, which is where the files reside.  This works for a while, but within a week it defaults back.  When it defaults back we lose the indexing of her desktop and documents files.  Does anyone know why this keeps happening, or how to fix it?

I have a conference PC where I have many different users (probably 15) who regularly login and I have pre-logged all of them in and set up email, desktop etc... Users are supposed to log out but do not always do that. When there are as few as 3 people logged in and another user wants to log in they will click on the "other user" so that it brings up a login screen. Many times clicking on this "other user" will do nothing at all and the user is forced to reboot to be able to log in. It does not always happen but it happens enough to be a bother. I would like that everyone just log off and have even printed this on the keyboard but users will be users. Any idea why this happens and any way to recify it would be appreciated.

Your communication platform is only as good as the relevance of the information you send. Ensure your alerts get to the right people every time with actionable responses. Create escalation rules that ensure everyone follows the process and nothing is left to chance.

I need to write a script that will determine a list of pc's exist in AD and whether they are still active in A.D . Is there a script that will pull the pc names off of a .csv file and let me know?  A simple ping will not be enough in order to report.

I want to embed an interactive Excel spreadsheet with command buttons and a few VBA procedures. I want page viewers to have the ability to choose options and the spreadsheet to return recalculated data.

I have seen Google searches suggesting using Microsoft's OneDrive. Is this the only method to gain interactive functionality?

 I currently have a Weebly business account although my granddaughter is suggesting I switch to Squarespace. To me, Squarespace seems more oriented to MAC users but I am using a PC with Windows 10.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I have a new project which involves demonstrating exactly how ransomware works. I need to set up a virtual machine with some sample data and some variant of ransomware. I need to run a live demonstration which shows what happens on a PC from the initial point of infection all the way to the point where the ransom notice is displayed. Obviously I know this is dangerous and the correct precautions will be in place to ensure that the VM is completely network isolated. Does anyone know how I can do something like this?

Here is the setup:

I have two sub-nets, separated by a Cisco ASA 5510. On the 192.168.99.0 side I have PCs that are trying to connect to a printer (HP x476dn MFP) on the 192.168.42.0 side.

If I disconnect the network cable and plug it back in to the printer, I am able to ping the printer; but only for a little while. A duration that is not consistent, I can ping, then it stops replying. Unplug cable and plug back in it works. One would think its the printer but no because if I am on the 192.168.42.0 side it pings continuously without interruption.

I have swapped cables, swapped what switch the printer is plugged into, and swapped ports, changed IP of printer, nothing makes a difference. Oddly I have other printers in our organization setup the same way and I don't have this issue. These PC's are able to reach them without issue. I have statically configured this printer like I did for the others. I checked the firewall to make sure it was not shunning the printer IP for some reason.

Not sure what else to check. Perplexing.
Attach a simple network layout to visually show what I have.
