Windows 10

Windows 10 is a personal computer operating system featuring the "universal application architecture" (UAP); apps can be designed to run across multiple devices with nearly identical code, including PCs, tablets, smartphones, embedded systems, Xbox One, Surface Hub and HoloLens. Windows 10 also includes a virtual desktop system, a window and desktop management feature called Task View, the Microsoft Edge web browser, support for fingerprint and face recognition login, voice-based search (Cortana), new security features for enterprise environments, and DirectX 12 and WDDM 2.0 to improve the operating system's graphics capabilities for games.

Two Windows 10 64-bit OS computers are unable to backup to a QNAP TS-451 NAS while these laptops are connected to the Wi-Fi while running the free version of Veeam v.2 (see the screenshot).

However, these same two laptops are able to backup just fine while their Wi-Fi is disabled and they are plugged in with Ethernet cables on the same network.

What can be done to fix this issue so that these two laptops will be able to backup to the NAS while connected to the Wi-Fi and without being plugged in with network cables?

I created a regular user so I am less likely to get viruses

I can enter all folders of other users

but I dont want to this to be permanent because virus can do everything and enter everywhere
which would make the idea of a non admin user not safe

A Windows 10 Pro OS is unable to print to Kyocera 3051 color copier

When trying to print a message appears that says "Test page failed to print. Would you like to view the print troubleshooter for assistance?"

If I click on the Yes button and run the diagnostic tests no problems are detected or fixed.

I have already run several Malware bytes and Symantec antivirus scans but nothing has been detected.

I have also run the sfc and DISM commands and no problems have been detected there.

All Windows and Office updated are currently installed.

What can be done to fix this issue so I can once again print from this computer?

I have a user that is using a shipping program. In this program, like most others she has several dialogue boxes to set. These options range from few to many but let me give an example.

When shipping, we specify a box size. Box A - 10x10x10 Box B - 12x12x12 and Box C - 25x25x25. There are numerous more but you get the idea.

So with the drop down box selected, if she wants a 12x12x12 she can normally just start typing "12" and it will 'autocomplete' to the first match of the correct size. Hitting '1 then 2' will at least bring her to the 12 inch box size section where she can locate the correct item, usually within a couple of the top selection.

But what is actually happening now is, the system recognizes the '1' then takes her to the first item with a number 1. Then it see's the 2 as a single, separate entry and jumps to the 20s section. Almost as if the program is reading the numbers too quickly.

It does this in other fields as well. We have a large customer history so when you want to go to ACME 123, it treats every character as separate instead of waiting or appending characters to the search. So it jumps to the first A, then the first C then M etc. etc.
Now there are times when it will work correctly, so its not that the application changes. But its so random and its actually jumping around 95% of the time.

So what search criteria am I looking for to find a solution. I don't know if any of you will know the answer to the issue but I am mostly looking …

Dear Experts,
I am running Windows Server Backup on WS 2016, and am running out of storage.
I have found some articles to utilize command "wbadmin" such as:

wbadmin delete systemstatebackup -version: 05/04/2015-18:25 -backupTarget: G:

My problem is, I don't know what the backupTarget drive is.  It does not show up in Windows Explorer, when I look into Backup Scheduler, it has a Name, but it is not a drive letter.  (It says "XXCompany 2017_04_06 16:03 Disk 01" as Destination Name.

How can I manage the backup storage space?  Please advise.

I'm trying to redirect the "Documents" and the "Favorites" folder of our Windows 10 Creators Update 64 bit to the users home directory on a network share like we did for Windows 7.

Redirecting "Documents" works fine but as soon as I switch on "Favorites" redirection it is causing an extreme slowness during logon, logoff and browsing the redirected folders (takes minutes just to show the only file stored there!).

Even browsing the "Favorites" folder locally on the file server holding the users home share is slow!

This is not a network or server related issue. When I only redirect "Documents" all is just fine and speed is normal.
Anyone seen this behavior?

As a side note:
I've checked permissions on the "Favorites" folder. there are 4 "unknown" SIDs.
(S-1-15-3-4096)
(S-1-15-3-3795941342-518727550-4290142327-3574433603-4273787745-1450327651-649988109)
(S-1-15-3-3469964869-263285312-1618360021-2343290171-1786798556-2722298370-1585569900)
(S-1-15-3-3624051433-2125758914-1423191267-1740899205-1073925389-3782572162-737981194)

Theses SIDs are not set by me or anything I know of. They are even set on the "Favorites" folder of a standalone Windows 10 system thats never been attached to a domain....
Could those unknown SIDs cause the slowness?

A user is complaining about some dots in the top center of their screen that blink and make using the machine / mouse really hard (the focus of the mouse / cursor moves).  It shhows up randomly

He has cortana and 'cortana background task host' running when pressing control-alt-delete.

This is the only time I dealt with cortana but have a feeling that's the cause?  He also gets a bullseye type of target effect on the screen too.

any ideas about what that is?

And how do you kill cortana?  In settings - privacy, I turned off cortana in there.  and I found a registry tip to turn off cortana. But after reboot, cortana is still running.

I looked in services and didn't see a cortana service to disable.

My client has a Win 10 machine. When logging into Windows this message appears (see attached). Problem started a day or so ago.

Unable to do anything much further in Windows. If I try the start menu button, it gives a "Critial Error" message. I've done a bit of research and re-started in Safe mode, unable to do much more in Windows (safemode). I tried system restore, but no restore points available.

Any ideas?

In a windows 10 computer, we can access the device by \\ipaddress\c$ but if we address it by name, that is \\computername\c$, it requests a user/password - which we enter but get 'access denied' and the user/password login windows re-appears.

Note, both computers are Windows 10, same workgroup, no domain, same subnet, etc.

We noticed that even though cannot access the computer by \\computername,  we can ping it with no problem (which means we can see that  computer).

We don't have a problem using  the access vi IP address, but  when the ip changes, th at's when we have  problems.  So we are trying to see whats going on and how  to access the remote computer by \\computer\c$

Please advice.

A client contacted me that after a recent Windows update she could no longer use both of her monitors. Going to their website there seems to be not driver for Windows 10. She updated to Windows 10 a while ago with no issue. The error message I am getting is "Windows has stopped the device because it has reported an issue. Code 43.

A past IT person has enabled Windows Power Shell scripts (with .PS1 extensions) to run with full unrestricted access on an organization's Windows 10 computers.

None of these computers are added to a domain.

What is the best method to use to disable these Power Shell scripts so that they will no longer be able to run?

We don't want to take any chances with viruses or malware exploiting this security hole.

We're running a watchguard XTM-515 (running XTM v.11.11.2.B508770), pptp vpn connections going into a windows 2008 AD network.  I've got one user with this problem on a regular basis.  Here's the scenerio.  Let's say we have a user named "Bob Smith."  Bob's domain username is bob_s.  Bob's VPN username is bsmith.  When connecting to the network via vpn (pptp) the connection links up correctly.  However, when trying to access mapped network drives, the computer tries to use the VPN username (domain.com\bsmith) instead of the domain username (domain.com\bob_s), with domain.com added to the front (shouldn't be there.  Isn't part of the vpn login credentials at all).  When authentication fails, Bob has to select "use different credentials" and manually specify "domain.com\bob_s." It doesn't seem to matter whether he checks the box to remember the credentials or not.  This happens both when he connects to the network via the vpn and the first time he logs on after returning to the office and plugging back into the network.  After that, things seem to work okay until Bob takes his laptop out again.  The next time he leaves the office, it happens all over again.  This does not seem to happen to anyone else.  "Bob" isn't a tinkerer, and has nothing installed on his laptop other than the standard applications that all other users have.  Not that it matters, but his laptop is a lenovo T560, running windows 10 pro.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I've been working with a computer and Outlook 2010 would not load. Repair did not work so uninstalled and reinstalled. Wouldn't accept verified password so I tried starting offline. More problems, getting the error message "The connection to Microsoft Exchange is unavailable. Outlook must be online or connected to complete this action" I couldn't resolve and discovered Malware (PUPs). Cleaned computer and it still won't open to take offline. Even uninstalled and reinstalled and attempted a repair. No go. I continue to get the above error message.

What would be my next step? Shall I simply delete the troublesome exchange account and re-add it? He has 4 emails in Outlook.

Hello,
     I just connected an internal hard drive for backup in a client's computer. It doesn't show up under PC and when I go into computer management - storage it does not show up there either. This is the first one I have installed on a Windows 10 system. I double checked connectors but did not test the drive outside the computer. I am now only able to work remotely on the computer for the time being.

Am I missing anything?

Dear Team,

I'm attempting to configure my first failover cluster in windows server 2016 for sql purposes across sites (different subnets). When the failover cluster goes through the validation in SITE A (DR-SQL1) the validation fails with the following errors:

 * Node DR-SQL2 is not reachable from node DR-SQL1. It is necessary that each cluster node can
    communicate each other cluster node by a minimum of one network path (though multiple paths
    are recommended to avoid a single point of failure). Please verify that existing networks
    are configured properly or add additional networks.
 * Node DR-SQL1 is not reachable from node DR-SQL2. It is necessary that each cluster node can
    communicate each other cluster node by a minimum of one network path (though multiple paths
    are recommended to avoid a single point of failure). Please verify that existing networks
    are configured properly or add additional networks.

Although when I run the same validation test from SITE B (DR-SQL2), they all pass just fine.

Any ideas where I should start looking, the firewall rules should allow all traffic to pass through between these 2 hosts.

Thank you.
