Software is any set of instructions that directs a computer to perform specific tasks or operations. Computer software consists of programs, libraries and related non-executable data (such as documentation). Computer software is non-tangible, contrasted with computer hardware, which is the physical component of computers. Software written in a machine language is known as "machine code". However, in practice, software is usually written in high-level programming languages than machine language. High-level languages are translated into machine language using a compiler or interpreter or a combination of the two.

Hi all

I monitor my customers internet connections with PRTG and I am seeing spikes in outbound data.  It seems to be affecting about half of the connections I am monitoring.  It has been noticed because it saturates the upstream on some ADSL circuits providing VOIP, dropping calls.  

I have a customer with two networks, 1 voip and 1 data.  strangely, the bandwidth peaks affect both at the same time.  Then I noticed that it affects other customers at the same time!  I considered whether it is my monitoring platform, but some customers don't have them.    Attached are some graphs, with pink being the outbound data usage.  

The graphs show outages as a series of red dots, but I don't know if the line is down or whether it is simply that the upstream data is saturated so the usage data gets lost or the monitoring software times out before the SNMP response gets there.  

So for the purposes of this, please view the high upstream data and the outages as the same thing.  You will see that the times correlate across all the graphs, approx 9:05, 9~:30-9:45

Any suggestions as to what it is or even better - any ideas to prevent it would be greatly appreciated.  

The routers are all Cisco 867VAE, 887VA or 2821 and I use SNMP to monitor them.

Greetings! I'm trying to figure out which machines have ccleaner (and will be used to find other software), but when I run this script it creates a csv, but does not write anything to it. Any help here would be greatly appreciated it! Server 2012 R2.

$OutPath = "c:\software.csv"
$Software = "*cleaner*"

$Computers = Get-Adcomputer -Filter *
foreach ($Computer in $Computers)
{
$Ping = Test-Connection -ComputerName $Computer.Name -Quiet -Count 1
if ($Ping -eq $true)
{
try
{
$MachineName = $Computer.Name
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product -ComputerName $computer.name -ErrorAction Stop | ? {$_.Name -like $Software} | Select-Object @{N="ComputerName";E={$Computer.Name}},Vendor,Name | Export-Csv $OutPath -Append
}
Catch
{
Write-Host "Unable to Obtain WMI Object of $MachineName"
}
}
}
If ($Ping -eq $False)
{
Write-Host "The $MachineName is not pingable"

I use Adobe acrobat XI Pro version 11.0.22 extensively

Have vba code that edits (E) acrobat files adding headers and footers and shrinking file sizes

I understand that Adobe will stop supporting this software on October and they recommend an upgrade

Any advice on the upgrade - how will it affect my code applications?

Examples are

Hey guys,
I have a client of mine that is looking for a software, app or website in which you can put in multiple locations to visit and that automatically draws out a map based on the destinations and makes it time saving as possible, for example if you have two destinations to go to in Las Vegas and then one in California and you live in Arizona, it would take you to the two places in Las Vegas and then California, instead of going from Arizona to Las Vegas, then to California, then back to Vegas for the other destination.  I research this and found that you can create a map of multiple destinations on Google Drive, but this requires you to plan it out manually so this is not what she is looking for.  Any  suggestions?

I was looking for assistance in customizing the Software compliance - 1 and 3 reports.  I do not want it to prompt for collection ID or software update group.  I want to specify in the report the collection ID and Software update group so i can save each one individually and set up subscriptions to have them emailed to the site leads for each location(collection) every month.

What steps need to be followed so that I can make the far left hand Outlook 2016 column larger (so that the People icon at the bottom of the column) will also display (see the screenshot).

Currently when I drag this column to make it larger it always reverts back to this smaller size.

How can I make this column permanently retain the larger size?

I changed my default printer and now MAS90 will not save the printer selection or recognize the windows default printer, it keeps trying to fax! It will hold the printer selection, and then after closing the software and opening, it defaults back to fax.
I just changed the Xerox PCL driver to a Universal PS driver as recommended by Xerox(to resolve a notification freezing issue) and now this.

Use Case: Protecting a Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Use Case: Protecting a Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Microsoft Azure is rapidly becoming the norm in dynamic IT environments. This document describes the challenges that organizations face when protecting data in a hybrid cloud IT environment and presents a use case to demonstrate how Acronis Backup protects all data.

I am working on a program in the CAPS (claim medical processing system) software.  It allows the user to enter claim information.  In the program claim information is written to files.  Before the claims entry screen is displayed, the program creates a backup of all the information for the patient.  This involves making copies of data in 5 different files in qtemp.  

If the user decides not to continue with the claim and backs out, the program removes all of the information in the 5 files for the patient being processed.  It then copies back the data that had been saved.  The problem with this is that on more than one occasion the claim entry screen ended before the information was copied back.

My manager has selected that we try commitment control.  But from what I have read this may not be the best choice.   Can anyone tell me if I am correct or can this be used?

Thank you

Hi there,
We have a customer who is using a software provider who's product is hosted in the cloud. Basically the customer has a reporting tool that they would like to connect to the back end of the software to interrogate and pull data out. The software provider wont allow this, but they are going to setup a WCF service which pulls the data out of their SQL server, and makes it available to the customer. What we need to do is create a WCF client that can connect to the WCF service, and pull the data out (ie daily), and then we would like to store the data in a local SQL DB, where the reporting tool can interrogate. Any thoughts / tips on this?

I have a Smoothwall firewall running the latest edition of software, Kenilworth.  Students have been discovered using an https proxy bypass site to get around the firewall.  How do you determine the port the bypass site is using so you can block traffic to disable it?  The specific site is https://xvpn.io.

I have a specific requirement, we have a large number of IT devices, they are already in an asset management software. The Devices run different software and are of different spec. Our project teams request the devices depending on the project they have e.g they may request 20 devices to be setup for a specific project. They will be returned after the project usually a few days later. I need a flexible tool that will us to track what project has what devices. It needs to be more flexible than most standard asset tracking in that both the project teams should be able to update and the IT teams. I can google! : ) I'm really looking for some personal experience on an enterprise level, thanks

I have a potential customer that is looking to expand -they are currently using Sage 50 Quantum Accounting on one system - if they wanted to go to a multi-user, what options are available?  One search I saw was that you could either have 1 user or would have to jump to 5 users, is this correct?

Hello,

What factors determine the quality and accuracy of OCR (optical character recognition) and is there much variability among different OCR software?

If there is variability in software, what applications are best (both free and purchased)?

I have 2 VMs running server 2016 and they are running different versions of our software.  I know how to get it so that certain users access the correct server by the collection and published app and the .rdp file it creates for them and that works no problem.  The boss however wants it to where they would get redirected before that to a certain server based on their domain name or group so that way if we move a bunch of people over to different versions we wouldn't have to change their .rdp shortcut on all their computers.  On a time crunch and trying to figure out whats the best way to go about this.  

My setup is I have a Hyper V 2016 server host and 2 vms both server 2016 running off of it we will call them Test 10.5 and Test 11.0.  Test 10.5 has one version of our software and 11.0 has another.  These are all in a domain which is on another 2008 server that has the AD and is the DC and also stores the data.  Right now the Test 10.5 VM is the RDSH, RDGW, RDWA, and the connection broker.  The Test 11.0 server is only a RDSH and we plan on adding more as time goes on as just RDSH.

He also would prefer it that way over using just the published app to direct them to a certain server for when we have to do maintenance etc.  Just trying to get some other ideas on if maybe there's a better way to go about this setup.

Good Morning,

Fortunately, we have the server, drives, and all the hardware. Unfortunately, all of it was removed. An IT intern has tried to make several bootable USB and Discs for the server to boot off of, however, every time it goes to boot, it only goes into Windows 98 DOS. We'd really love to keep the server and wanted to get it to Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard for some basic computing and storage needs. Also to mirror a NAS drive for redundancy.

I'm not sure how to just get it out of DOS and to boot from a USB or DVD. I've already tried to go into the boot menu and that also does not work, change the BIOS boot config, still goes to DOS.

Any future help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I am looking for a free cloud-based call center software such as Fenero. There is nothing wrong with Fenero except that they don't provide any support at all getting started unless you sign up to pay significantly and monthly.

In their comparison at the bottom of this page, http://www.fenero.com/, they mention Five9 and InContact as being more costly solutions. SalesForce is very costly and is out of the question.

We will be making outbound calls and doing emails.

Free or pay-per-call or pay-per-support incident would be a better model getting started than would a monthly option.

Assistance in finding a better solution for this would be greatly appreciated.

I have one workstation on the domain (with 22 others), that allows its user to log into the domain, has full internet access, that periodically the network shares become locked, with red x's on them, simply logging out and then back in appears to correct the problem, but it returns later, sometime very soon (same day) sometimes days later.

I have removed and replaced the system on the domain.
Its network card settings are the same as every other machine. (Using Static IP numbers)
all of the workstations are identical in terms of type of network card and software (W7Pro)
I have removed and reinstalled the network card software.
event log indicates that the network connection just stops.
it is not allowed to go to sleep
