Ransomware-A Revenue Bonanza for Service Providers

Ransomware – malware that gets on your customers’ computers, encrypts their data, and extorts a hefty ransom for the decryption keys – is a surging new threat.  The purpose of this eBook is to educate the reader about ransomware attacks.

Does anyone no where I can download a trial version of Windows 7, I'm looking to test out an app and want to do it on a clean install and don't want to have to purchase a license to do so, these iso's used to be easily available, now you can't get them without a product key.

I am glad you figured it out. I was going to say that the behavior is by design. In fact, I have that setting specifically enabled... :-)

I have created a few GPO URL shortcuts. They do not seem to be applying to Windows 10 machines.
However they will apply fine to Windows 7 or Server 2008.
When I check in the Group Policy Management console to see if  GPO has applied, is does not show up anywhere in the results?

I am following the directions on how to share a file or photo via onedrive to a user and the user never gets the email.  Can anyone actually successfully do this via Microsoft's instructions?

Here are the instructions.  Choose the Share Files and Folders Video.

I have a Business Owner who leaves multiple docs and emails open all the time. He is currently on Windows 7. I am willing to update to Windows 10 to resolve this issue. When his machine reboots unexpectedly, he freaks out because all the docs and emails are gone. Is there a program or setting that I can use to restore all of that after the reboot?

Hello Folks,
I have this BSOD dmp file here attached that I cannot glean anything from. I am using BlueScreenView, but it doesn't seem to want to find the file. Also, I am not the best at understanding what I see in these files anyway. Can someone look at this file and help me understand what caused the BSOD? This is a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit machine. I believe this occurred when the user re-docked it while the lid was closed. Thanks!

Hi

Anyone any experience of imaging these machines ?  I have built my first machine and its all ok, I would normally use Clonezilla for imaging but it reports a GPT/MBR mismatch so doesnt work.

I will have about 40 machines to do so ideally looking for something fairly quick to deploy.

Thanks

Windows 7 SP1 64-bit system unable to update Dragon v15 with Error 13000 from software manager.  I can login to the client Nuance.com account, but do not see any option to download updates.  Is there a download available for just the updates?  Any other thoughts?

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.

I'm getting an error when my backup computer boots up under Windows 7.

The message I get is: "Failed to connect to a Windows Service

Windows could not connect to the System Event Notification Service.
You can review the System Event Log for details about the service
that didn't respond."

I've brought up the Event Viewer but am baffled about how to use it to get this part of the OS running.

Does anyone out there know?

I have a Canon Pixma MG6853.

I've can't seem to get it to work via wifi on Windows 10.
It worked for two days approximately just when I bought it and set it up and then suddenly stopped.

It works via:
USB
Wifi on Windows 7 laptop

Printer is connected succesfully to wireless network.
My two Win 10 devices cannot ping the printer either.

What I tried:
Assign a fixed IP address on router -> printer receives new IP after reboot
Disabled IPv6 on printer
Disabled (obviously) Antivirus and Firewall on laptop
Played around with sharing settings on winodws
Uninstalled and reinstalled Wifi adapter drivers
Updated Wifi adapter drivers

I cannot find connect to the printer using the Canon driver installer utility nor via the classic TCP/IP wizard from Windows.
IP address is 100% correct as I can ping it and use it on a Windows 7.

Am I missing something here?

One Windows 10 is 1607 and the other is 1703.

If i open up vnc to a remote computer i get a black screen / same thing with teamviewer
but as soon as i connect to rdp then the vnc and teamviewer work just fine.
Any idea what is causing this and how to fix it so i can simply use teamviewer and/or vnc without having to connect to rdp at the same time?

Thanks!

I have a problem with my computer. I have Windows 7 ultimate and about two weeks ago after I updated my avast(tm) antivirus, my computer crashed on start-up. So I booted it in safe mode and through msconfig.exe I was able to isolate the problem and turn it off. Now however, I can't connect to the internet and everything I have tried so far to fix it has been proving fruitless. I have an idea on what to do but I can't seem to find the file I need. It seems I need an EAP.txt file, but I can't find it online. IF someone knows where to get it can you link it and walk me through how to replace it with my old one? I'm moving soon so I need this done ASAP

There was a windows update last Tuesday that was pushed out that created an enormous problem when trying to print from IE11.  My customer uses Dealertrack and VINsolutions and when trying to print from form pages it prints out a : Page not found error.  I have contacted both customer supports to see if they have found a fix and they still have not.  Has anybody ran into the same issue? I cannot find a solution anywhere.

Hello,

I'm getting the message listed in the title when trying to access a DFS share from a new subnet we created which happens to be a different subnet the one the nearest DFS server is.

So, the workstation on Subnet B is trying to access the DFS server on Subnet A.  Subnet B is a new subnet we just created.  Networking and DNS seem to be working fine to Subnet B and the workstation can access the DFS server by name using \\Servername with no issues.  It's only when using \\DFSsharedomain the issue occurs.  

I've set up a reverse DNS zone for the new subnet, ensured the workstation on the new subnet is listed in DNS and that servers and workstations can access the workstation on Subnet B both by IP and by host name.



I'm not sure what DFS needs for the workstation to access it which is what I'm stumped on.   Because the workstation is on a subnet without a DFS server and has to travel across subnets, it's not associated with a "site" and therefore all the DFS servers are showing up as referral targets whereas other workstations in the overall network only get referrals from DFS servers in their "site".  I wonder if this is the issue?

 Can any one assist?

Thank you!

I have a file server a 2008 r2 64 bit machine.  I have files designated by departments and no inheritance (I take it off).  My question is as much as I'm trying to not allow access to unauthorized users, sometimes I have to mix it up.  I need to have one folder to be accessed by other users that are not in the department. I don't want to actually share the folder but just give permission to that folder  I do not want the users to be able to see anything except that one folder and what's in it.  What's the best way to accomplish this?  this department also has files that are not in folders and I don't want the other users to be able to access them either.
