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.

I've installed the latest TightVNC (32bit) on my Dell Win 7 32bit as well as on
another laptop Win 7 64bit.   TightVNC service is started

In both cases, when I tried to launch them, nothing happens.  Windows
Firewall was permitted during installation.

'netstat -ano | find "pid_of_tightvn" '
shows TightVNC processes are listening on Tcp 5800 & 5900
& telnet localhost   5800  or  5900     connects

one of our network guys changed the ISCSI software adapter on a host to the iscsi path of a san. how can it be changed back to the orginal.  It was origininaly something like iqn.1998-01.com.vmware:esx-79cf2f59  now its iqn.2011-06.com.sansdigital:sansdigital-000c28521:target2

I have disabled it and rebooted the host and attempted to add a new ISCSI software adapter but then it just re-adds the SANS digital. Since he has done this, now LUN's are presented.

Folks,
Good evening to all. I have a desktop workstation and a new laptop, both pc's. I would like to be able to have the new pc "shadow" the desktop PC. This would be like the desktop pc would be the master and the laptop pc would be the slave. I do a lot of work on the desktop and would like the laptop to mirror the master. All I would like to do then is click on an icon that would then update the laptop from the desktop using wireless technology. Possible, and if so what would be some good software for this?

We have several Remote Desktop Servers (Windows 2008R2) that are optimized as much as we can for the time being. We have budgeted for upgrades but in the mean time, has anyone used RDP Acceleration software such as Ericom, etc with any luck?

Can anyone recommend such a product?

I have always used Adobe Acrobat, but on your suggestion I am testing Nuance's Power PDF.  The thing that is most important to me is the ability to edit forms (either created by me or by others).  I am using a test form created by one of my client companies, and can't find a way for the Power PDF program to edit the font settings in the form.  This is an important feature.

I tried editing the font settings in Adobe Acrobat XI (which I currently use), and for the first time got a message that read "This form cannot be edited in Acrobat.  Please use Adobe's LiveCycle Designer to edit this form".  What is LiveCycle Designer, and is there no longer an Adobe product that will allow me to do what I need to do?  Or do I need to add the pricey LiveCycle to my Acrobat to get the form editing features?

Thanks,

Phil

Background:   iMac, Sierra.  There are damaged sectors.  There is a 30GB  Parallels file that appears to occupy some of those sectors.
  • I ran Disk Utility, which stopped as soon as it found a damaged sector, and reported that it couldn't help.
  • DiskWarrior showed a "preview drive"   I could only copy about 15GB of the Parallels file before I got an error message that file couldn't be copied.
  • Mac Data Recovery Guru - they found the sectors, kept running, but no Parallels file showed up on the list of recoverable files.
Is there any other software or method that can recover the large Parallels file, or enable me to extract whatever undamaged files are located inside?

Thanks.

I run Windows on all my computers, and have been using Adobe Acrobat for all my PDF needs for decades.  I am currently running Acrobat XI, and when I went to the Adobe site to see if a newer version was available I was dismayed to see that the company has switched to cloud-based, monthly service programs, and don't seem to offer a stand-alone acrobat program at all.  So it occurred to me that I was a dinosaur (admittedly) and should probably check with you guys to see if there is a better program for working with PDF files.  Please advise.

Thanks,

Phil

Can someone send me the link to download a free backup software for windows 8. I need to backup data and settings if possible.

Windows should have built in a windows backup that i usually use but is not is this computer ...

Thank you,

Can you please provide me with the exact syntax of the Symbolic Links command I would use that will allow the folder path "C:\Users\[UserName]\Google" to appear as if it is located within the "C:\Users\[Username]\Box Sync" folder so that the contents of folders within the "C:\Users\[UserName]\Google" will be backed up by Box.com even though it is actually located in the other folder.


This needs to be done since Box.com will only backup folders that are located within the Box Sync folder. Folders in other paths can't be selected to be backed up unless they are contained within the Box Sync folder. Therefore I need to find a way of insuring that Box.com will backup these other folder locations since I am unable to move the folders and data located within the "C:\Users\[UserName]\Google" folder to a different location.

This needs to be done within Windows 10 and can be done using Symbolic Links. I just need to know the correct syntax and how to set this up using Symbolic Links.

These URLs discuss Symbolic Links:

Also please let me know if any further information is needed.

We are currently using a sync service available through Box.com.

This service allows all files and folders located within the "C:\Users\[Username]\Box" or "C:\Users\[Username]\Box Sync" folder to be synced online with Box.com.

The problem is that we aren't able to move or place all of the folders that need to be backed up with Box.com within these folder paths listed above.

So we are looking for a utility that will allow other folder paths such as 1. "C:\Users\[UserName]\Google" or 2. "C:\Users\[UserName]\OneDrive" to appear as if they are located within the "C:\Users\[Username]\Box Sync" folder so that the contents of folder paths 1 and 2 will be backed up with Box.com even though they are located in other folders.

What kind of utilities, programs, or methods are available to do this within Windows 10?

Or is it possible to do this with the subst or other command line command?

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Folks,
I've been having problems with creating an Image drive using NovaStor. I presented them with the logs and here was their response:

Thank you for submitting your logs.

Unfortunately I have reviewed them and have discovered that you have bad blocks and disk errors like crazy for both your Seagate backup drive and your Toshiba backup drive. Until these disk errors have been corrected on your end then we can try the backups again. I suggest having an IT professional diagnose the issue with your drives.

Is there any reliable software to repair ba block and disk errors ( ran chkdsk repair but apparently that needs additional help)

I have a client that has an old non working Macbook and wants her pictures recovered and moved to her new PC. I have
removed the Mac HDD and have attached it externally to the PC but of course her PC will not read the Mac HDD.
Is there software (preferably free) you can recommend that I can install on the PC that will allow me to see the Mac HDD and recover her pictures?

Important Lessons on Recovering from Petya

In their most recent webinar, Skyport Systems explores ways to isolate and protect critical databases to keep the core of your company safe from harm.

Hello,

Is the following a legitimate program and can/should it be removed?

        Service Host: Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider

It's the top CPU user on my system (per Task Manager) and is using up to 15% of the CPU.

Thanks

I'm still a bit of a pig on roller skates when it comes to the Command Line Interface, but I'm getting more comfortable with it.

Recently, I was walking through a tutorial and I was following the instructions as far as "cd" etc in order to navigate to the correct directory. I typed in "ls" to see the contents of the directory I was in and was given an error message that said it was an unrecognized command. I was able to figure out that I could get what I needed by typing in "dir" but the whole thing took me by surprise because I haven't had to do that before.

I'm trying to figure out what I've used in the past that allowed me to use the "ls" command. I've had several people come alongside me and walk me through some basic commands. Problem is, I was more preoccupied with typing the right syntax than I was in recognizing what software I was using and I'm realizing now that makes a difference.

It SEEMS like I might've been referred to a CLI that interacted with a Windows environment, but used Linux commands. I think Ubuntu maybe? Maybe Bash?

My question is why? Why would you use a Linux based CLI to interact with a Windows environment? Is it easier? Is it more efficient? Are Ubuntu and Bash popular programs?

I'm just trying to retrace my steps and figure out why I would've been encouraged to use a Linux based shell rather than the Windows CLI.

Thoughts?

I have an HP laserject 1320 on a Win7/64 machine. Printer keeps losing its duplexing and prints an extra blank page. Tired or resetting toggle multiple times to get it to stick. Should install a fresh driver. But I've done this before and it can be a bit tricky.

HP instructions for uninstalling call for uninstalling software from program list, then restarting program and removing device from printers and drivers. What's confusing at this stage is when to disconnect printer and at what stage.

Installing new printer: Do I simply run the downloaded driver software and/or so I have to go to devices and printers and ADD a new device. Or do I have to do both.

Dear experts

We use a client managment software which comes with a tool to create a GPO to install an agent on the clients.
The registry entry that the GPO inserts in the clients registry looks like this (I edited a few names and values):

[HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GPExtensions\{aaaaaaaa-bbbb-cccc-dddd-eeeeeeeeeeee}]
@="Agent Provisioning Extension"
"Install"=dword:00000001
"SomeHostName"="server1.com"
"DistributionServer"="\\\\server2.com\\Share"
"AgentMSI"="some.msi"
"dateCreated"="30.08.2017 15:01:02"
"dateModified"="30.08.2017 15:01:02"
"DLLName"="\\\\server2.com\\Share\\Deploy%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%.DLL"
"ProcessGroupPolicyEx"="ProcessGroupPolicyEx"
"NoUserPolicy"=dword:00000001
"RequiresSuccessfulRegistry"=dword:00000001

I don't have the slightest idea how this installs a piece of software and what all the keys and values are good for and would like to learn as detailed as possible what's happening when windows finds this registry entry. My question therefore is, where would I find any information about that process? I would like to learn as much about it that I'm able to write such an entry myself rather than with a tool.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
