I have a Galaxy Note5 that I use as an auxiliary device.  In other words it does not have a SIM card in it.  It only connects to the internet via Wi-Fi.

I would like to have Google Voice to be the default dialer for this device.  I tried to research this issue a few times but I can't seen to figure it out.

The Note5 is running Android version 7.0

Upgraded to Gigabit internet 1000 Mbps up and down, when I set up a Window 10 computer and run a speed test I get the 800-900 up and down each time, when I test with a win 7 computer i will get one or two test that give me the same results but after that  my upload speed slows down to 50-100 Mbps. I then restart the Win 7 computer and I will get one or two good test but after that the upload slows down again.

All,

We mapped a share drive with both .bat and Preferences on group policy. We also hide these folders, everything is working fine for users on Windows 7 but they are not able to see or map the folder on Windows 10, so what would be an issue with 10. Is there anything need to be checked?

I have a PC that has Windows 7 Enterprise installed.  The automatic upgrade (SCCM task sequence) didn't work with this PC.

Here's the odd thing.  I tried to manually upgrade the PC but it only gives me the option of upgrading to Windows 10 Pro.  I've manually upgraded 15 or so machines and this is the first time I've seen it.

I need it to upgrade to Enterprise - I'd prefer not to start with a newly imaged machine.  

Anyone have an idea why this might be happening.  My google foo must be off, because I can't find any reference to something like this.

Running Internet Explorer 11 on a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit platform.  Recently, Internet Explorer began closing by itself, a few moments after launching.  The Event Log showed a module fault at kernelbase.dll    No other applications were affected.  I tried various approaches to fixing this, including restoring a saved disk image, and performing an in-place Windows upgrade/repair, but the issue persisted.  If I logged on with a different user profile, or used Windows Safe Mode, the behavior did not happen.  Eventually I restored Internet Explorer's settings to default.  That solved the problem of the browser self-closing.  However, when I visit my own website, now, most of the page content doesn't appear in the browser.  Instead, there is just the page background.  If I scroll down, the page will scroll indefinitely.  This doesn't happen with Internet Explorer 11 on a Windows 7 notebook computer, nor does it happen with Google Chrome on my desktop.   I'm not sure what I've done, or removed from Internet Explorer on my desktop, but I'd like some guidance about how to remedy it.

I am trying to install FreeNAS from a USB on a server and am running into all sorts of problems. I have used UNetBootIn, Universal USB Installer, and ISO to USB to try to get the ISO on the stick, but they don't boot because there is a missing boot loader.  So I did a search and discovered that the only way to install from a Windows computer was to use Win32 Disk Imager.  However, that required an .img file and all I had was an ,ISO file.  So, I used PowerISO to make a .img file from the ,ISO file.  This resulted in:

No /boot/loader
FreeBSD/i386 boot
BTX halted

Can anyone provide any insights into how I am supposed to be doing this?

This page opens when we open IE.
When we turn on the computer there is a popup lower right.
Maybe it stops after the deadline to save 50% and maybe not.
Does Windows 7 have some enemy list that we could add to?

I have tried several things to disable TLS 1.0 on a Windows 7 system.  All the documentation states to add registry keys and reboot.  No matter what  try TLS 1.0 is still reported to be enabled on both the client and the server side of the system.  Here are the registry keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.0]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.0\Client]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000
"DisabledByDefault"=dword:00000001
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.0\Server]
"Enabled"=dword:00000000
"DisabledByDefault"=dword:00000001

Open in new window

Testing with nmap and openssl both show that TLS 1.0 is still enabled for 3389 (server).  
openssl s_client -connect 192.168.1.1:3389  -tls1
....
SSL-Session:
    Protocol  : TLSv1
    Cipher    : ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA

Open in new window

nmap --script ssl-enum-ciphers -p 3389 192.168.1.1
PORT     STATE SERVICE
3389/tcp open  ms-wbt-server
| ssl-enum-ciphers:
|   TLSv1.0:
|     ciphers:
|       TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA (secp256r1) - A
|       TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA (secp256r1) - A
|       TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA (dh 2048) - A
.....

Open in new window

Going to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html shows TLS 1.0 is still enabled on the client side:
 
Protocols
TLS 1.3	Yes
TLS 1.2	Yes
TLS 1.1	Yes
TLS 1.0	Yes
SSL 3	No
SSL 2	No

PaperPort installer detected previous installation
You did a proper uninstallation of PaperPort. You even ran the official PP14 Remover Tool. But when you try to reinstall PaperPort, you get the dialog box above, which you can't get past. There is simply no way to install PaperPort! This article presents a solution that has worked for many PP users.

I have a Lenovo X1 Carbon Type 20FB (4th Gen) that will not boot into windows, it hangs after loading aswbidsha.sys .  When trying to boot to the Windows 7 Pro CD it displays a black screen with a white responsive mouse pointer.  Keyboard does not appear to be responsive.  I also experience this same behavior when trying to boot to a Windows Defender Offline USB drive.  Lenovo hardware diagnostics pass.  When pressing f11 from BIOS interrupt to repair it loads windows and gives black screen, no mouse.  I used to use UBCD but my USB UBCD drives BSOD now as it has been a very long time since I used them.  I am of course trying to avoid telling client we need to reset and install new, he has data backed up but no image.  Any suggestions?  Thank you!

On an SBS domain with exchange running in-house.

Bob leaves the company. He has email bob@company.com,  His Pc's desktop has all kinds of shortcuts to LoB apps, shortcuts to shares he needs, and his  mailbox has all kinds of contacts and mail.

Joe replaces him.

What's the steps to keep as much as possible - desktop icons, mail, etc.  And mail coming into bob@ gets into the joe@ mailbox?

I could think of some ways to do some of it - change the user bob to joe and create an alias for bob.  Or start from scratch new user?

But beyond that? Joe logs into that desktop PC, is he going to get the bob desktop layout?  And the folder will be c:\users\bob?

There is NO need / desire to freeze / litigation hold or anything like that for the old mailbox.  Just give the new employee all the old emails / folders / contacts / calendar...

Best practices?

Thanks!
