Im needing to find a backup program that lets you select folders to backup from a hard drive on a Win7 machine to an external USB drive (sounds simple so far) but of the few i have tried that are free most seem to come with big restrictions or user interfaces that feel like unfinished software..  Some dont seem to do incremental backups unless you buy the paid version, just need something simple that works.. any ideas?

What’s Wrong with Your Cloud Strategy ?

Even as many CIOs are embracing a cloud-first strategy, the reality is that moving to the cloud is a lengthy process and the end-state is likely to be a blend of multiple clouds—public and private. Learn why multicloud solutions matter in this webinar by Nimble Storage.

Okay, so I'm trying to use the runas with smart card credentials.  It works, but only through the command line window.  Instead I would like it to automatically bring up the standard GUI that shows the smart cards.

Example:  I want to use getmac to grab a mac address of a computer on the network.  I can only do this with credentials.  We use smart cards only.  I'm trying to get that info, redirect it to a simple text file, and then display that text file later.  Yes, I can get it to work in the command line window, but I want to select the smart card from the GUI instead.  Any way to do this??

VBA Code:

Shell "runas /smartcard getmac /s " & ipaddress & " >>MACINFO.TXT"
Shell "notepad MACINFO.TXT"

Hello there.  

I was having big problems with my Windows 7 computer and it was because a rather nasty Trojan or something was starting to eat up the system.  I was able to save the Windows Live Mail file in the Program Files and it contains all my email accounts and emails received over the last couple of years.  I would like to be able to get the inbox and sent emails back for the respective email accounts which are now in Outlook 13.  I cannot export any7thing as the old computer has had it, but can I still copy the files across to Outlook 13, so they appear there?

I have a workgroup that consists of windows 7 and 10 desktops and 2 windows 2012 servers. I recently setup a new desktop with Windows 10  and one user (using Microsoft Email account) and joined the workgroup. I shared the drive and was able to map a local drive letter to other desktops.  But now when I try to map a drive to this machine from another windows 10 desktop. I keep getting an "incorrect password" error message. Can someone tell me definitively when I should use which credentials to gain access to the share?  Is it the email address and its password, or the user name and its PIN? And what exactly is supposed to be the syntax for each entry? Is it "MicrosoftAccount\user@email.com" and password or is it "remotehostname\Profilename" and PIN? Or maybe just user@email.com or Profilename? And does it matter if username has a space in it ( e.g. firstname lastname)? A concise explanation of all this would be most helpful. Thanks

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit on my laptop. Everything is running smoothly except on startup and any time that I attempt to logoff or log on to the laptop. The message is as follows:

LogonUI.exe entry point not found

The procedure entry point SsoCredentials could not be located in the dynamic link library DialogManager64.dll

That message appears at the following times:

When I start my PC and immediately before I'm asked to press CTRL + ALT + DELETE to logon
Immediately after I press CTRL + ALT + DELETE

I have to click the message's OK button numerous times but it eventually goes away and I can log on and proceed without a problem.

I recently installed a copy of Pulse Secure and the problem started at around that time but I'm not 100% sure that it is the cause or if that was just a coincidence. I used System Restore to rollback to the pre Pulse Secure install state but that didn't clear the problem.

Any ideas on what I should try. I've googled for answers but found nothing that really helps

I found some info that says to add the following Binary key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>Control>Keyboard Layout
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 3A 00 00 00 00 00

This does not work, when when we import a .reg file or add the key manually.

Thanks

I have a Windows 7 computer and an HP8710 printer. I've been printing from the Win7 to this printer for months. Today, I can't. The printer is connected to the LAN wirelessly with an IP assigned by the router. I have no wireless card in the Win7, but it's been using the LAN IP address just fine. I've run through the HP Print and Scan Doctor 5.0. I specify the Network-Wired connection. It finds the printer on the LAN saying, "The following products are visible from your computer", and it shows the 8170 and gives its IP: 192.168.0.12 and says "Installed". So, it must be able to see the printer to some extent. When I click 'Next' for it to "Communicate" with the printer, it tries for a while then says, "Failed to communicate with your selected product ..."

ALSO ... when I run the Printer Assistant, and it goes to retrieve information from the device, that succeeds! I can see the ink levels, etc.

I've shutdown/rebooted the computer several times and cycled the power on the printer (including unplugging it). I've re-done the Wireless setup Wizard on the printer. Other computers on the LAN can print w/o problem.

I can ping the 192.168.0.12 IP from 2 of the Linux computers on the LAN. I cannot ping this IP from either of the 2 Windows 7 computers on the LAN. The WIN7 *can* ping the router and other computers on the LAN.

I'm out of ideas. Perhaps a recent update to Windows did something? Perhaps a firewall issue? I need help!

(btw - I'm a network administrator at my …

Outlook 2013, Windows 7, Outlook 365.

My users are transient with their use of different workstations each day (user1 uses PC1 today, tomorrow PC2, PC3, PC1, PC3, etc). Due to our business needs, this cannot change.  With the transient population, harddrives are filling up with OST files.  I am required to use OST files per corporate.  I want to redirect the OST to a server (ex:  \\server1\usershare\userhome\username\outlookfilename.ost).  I can do this with a GPO or using the ForceOSTPath registry hack but every computer creates a new OST; defeating the whole reason for the redirection.  Instead of filling the local drive I fill my server with OSTs.  

I need a user to have a single OST on the server and all the workstations point to the single OST.  Bandwidth is not an issue as the server has 60GB of throughput and workstations are 1GB NICs.  I tried ScriptLogic; it works once and then on subsequent login the script goes stupid and the OST is localized to never redirect to the server again.  Support is stumped.  Looking for any better ideas to accomplish this, software, a script, etc.

User has a Brother Inkjet  MFC-J4510 DW, attached to a Windows 7  HP desktop.  Printer is about 2 years old.

They don't print out a lot of pages per month. They first noticed about 3 months ago that the black ink was being used up at a much quicker rate than in the year previous.

Then the other day they say they ran a cleaning cycle which used up almost an entire black cartridge.

I figure that a new printer would cost them $10 a month for a year if they bought a new one now.  Versus $25 a month for disappearing black ink.

Is there a way to tell if the printer is failing, or if there's a setting on the Brother that would change the rate of ink usage?


Thanks

Hi guys

I've got a laptop with a Windows 8 Pro license at the time of purchase, but it was downgraded to Windows 7 Pro for us when delivered.

I now need to put in a new hard disk and rebuild the O.S. However, this laptop came with no DVD's so I have to find the appropriate content and do it myself.

My question is this: will I just be able to create a bootable Windows 7 ISO and install it? Will I be compliant in terms of licensing if I download the Volume LIcense version of Windows 7 and install it? As we have access to the Microsoft VLSC portal and can download it and create the bootable .ISO.

Thanks for helping guys

Dear,
We did not expected that a certain setting in our GPO setting will make that our system tray only display now date and hour and that everything else is not showed anymore.

I'm  sure that this is GPO related because the behavior is the same on all our workstation on the domain, but .. where??
Any quick help will be greatly appreciated !

attached our current system tray... where most of the icons are missing :(

Hi,

Decided to upgrade my workstation to 10 from Windows 7 Professional.  I was logged in as the domain admin when I started the process.  

While long, it did upgrade surprisingly well.  Everything I use appears to be working.    Then I started spotting....oddities.

  1. Win 10 thinks I am logged in as the Built-in Administrator account.  I'm not, technically.  This has other implications, such as not having access to Edge, Mail, etc.  The good news is I don't use either normally.
  2. Left-clicking on the new Start Menu icon does nothing at all.  Well, almost nothing.  I see a momentary flicker before it returns to the screen.
  3. The icons I have on the desktop can no longer  be set to the leftmost column nor bottom row.  When I do, Win 10 forces them back toward the center of the screen .  Very strange.

Thanks!

Each time I open a folder, this indicator (blue time indicator by the cursor) like get on off on off several times before the folder is opened. Very quick on off on off but it's a time lag so it's disturbing (the folder doesn't open as fast as it should, that is, immediately).

Is it a virus? I've never had this until the last week or so.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium.

We recently implemented EAP TLS in our Cisco WLC/AP WiFi environment. I was having a problem where at least once a day I would get dropped from the network and it wouldn't automatically attach. I believe I have this solved but I would like help understanding why it solved or if you think I'm just hitting a lucky spell that's fine too.

The fix seemed to be - in Windows 7 I ran msc and then added in the certificate snap-in. I browsed to Personal folder for certificates and there I found two certificate: *.allyoop.com and *.lab.allyoop.com. I deleted the *.lab.allyoop.com certificate. And now my EAP TLS WiFi auto attaches in the morning without my having to select one of those two certs in the morning. But additionally I am staying attached the entire day without getting detached.

Can one of our WiFi experts comment on how the deletion of the lab certificate might have improved the stability of my EAP TLS WiFi connection? Thank you

Hi Experts,

I want to share a folder on my computer to other computers on the same local area network.
I did these:
1. set all the computers in the LAN (including mine) to the same windows WorkGroup name;
2. configure a folder on my computer to share with Everyone for full control.

When I tried from another computer in LAN, my computer with the shared folder can be found in the network, However, I was asked for username/password when I tried to open that folder.

I want to ask, is there a simple way to share a folder on my computer to everyone in the network without needing other people to enter username/password?

More details: I want to do it as simple as possible, trying to avoid using ActiveDirectory or buying other equipment. The LAN I am using has a wired router. My computer has Windows 7 home premium, other computers on the network have either Window 7 or Windows 8.

Thank you!

I am unable to capture a windows 10 professional image using windows deployment services after upgrading from windows 7 to windows 10,

I have experienced multiple issues including sysprep failing, WDS only being able to see the wrong volume and not the one I want to capture the image from, the capture progress getting stuck at a certain percentage and not completing etc.

is there a specific method to capture an image from a windows 10 after its been upgraded from 7 or 8.1?

Or Is it possible to capture the custom windows 10 image I have on my machine using the built in windows 10 'create a system image' option?
0
We have software that utilizes a USB scanner and some of the times, the service that runs to send the captured items stops for some reason. Our users are not local admins so it takes and admin to login to the PC and restart the service. I don't believe there is a way to give permissions for a specific service that would allow a normal user to restart it so I'm wondering if there is another option. Can I create a script or batch program that they could run that would restart the service? It's not a huge deal and doesn't happen on a regular basis but if it does come up and I'm not available, it's kind of a pain.
