We are testing group policies for Windows 10, and want to compare with the old group policies for Windows 7.
Could you please tell us how we can compare two group policies between testing AD environment and production AD environment?
Is it possible to have some GUI reporting tools?
Thank you.

We are going to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
Could you please advise what settings or feactures on Windows 10 that we better hide or block from domain users? The Company wants colleagues to focus on their daily work with better security, privacy control. For example, remove xBox, Games, hide Windows Settings, etc...
And we will use Group policy for central management.

Windows 10 upgrade disc giving me issues when trying to upgrade a Windows 7 machine. The install DVD starts and gives the screen to Repair or Install and when I select Install, it is asking for drivers.  The HD has drivers, so that is confusing.  But, I have been placed the CD with drivers in the bay and it still stays it can't find the drivers.  

The version of the Win10 OS installer is Product version 10.0.18362.1

What am I doing wrong?

I am trying to update the onboard OS of my Dell Wyse 7010 thin client. I loaded the latest OS/BIOS image to a 32gb usb flash drive formatted to FAT32 and attempted to boot to it by pushing "P" until the boot options pop up. Then I select the usb drive and a couple seconds later the screen goes right back to the boot options.

Why would it not boot from the USB drive? What is the proper procedure for flashing a Dell Wyse 7010 thin client?

Using the Media Creation Tool to try and upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium. I get to about 69% of the final stage and it fails.

I've removed the extra video card and disabled Defender.

Any other thoughts?

Hi,

I have folder share in windows server 2008R2. I there any application can I install to request password when anyone want to delete any file or folders inside the shared folder? Also, can the application track who delete this file or folder?

I do know that I can restrict delete files by using permission but this will not allow user to delete file.

Thanks

Hello All,

I am having a problem with some Windows 7 machines and updates.  A few machine have taken as long as 45 minutes to update in the morning even if they were not informed the night before when shutting down that there were updates to run.  One machine seems to be stuck in a loop where it updates every morning for about an hour.  They are all using WSUS to get their updates from a 2019 Server.  When I look at the machine that updates every morning in WSUS it shows on .net update needed but it does not show up on the computer in the update settings.

Any suggestions?

Regards,

Rob

I'm working from a Windows 7 computer connected to our domain via a VPN.
I'd like to get a list of the serial numbers of ALL computers currently running in our domain.  I'm assuming this would be done from accessing information via Active Directory.

on all Windows 7 systems KB4516065 failed with code 80092004.
On 2008R2 server, it made the system unresponsive and had to be power reset.

Subsequent attempts to reinstall on Windows 7 yielded the same error.

Is there a known cause and resolution?

Hello I am trying to upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10. When I try to update I get an error 8007001f-20006.

I have updated all drivers, windows 7 updates, run a chkdsk and a sfc /scannow.  All is ok.

Any thought on how to resolve this issue?

Hello Experts. I have a windows 7 system that has a recover partition.   While in Disk Management (in Computer Management) I cannot get any access to the "recovery partition".

When I highlight it and right mouse click all I get is "help", I don't get the other options normally preseted for drives.

Because of this I cannot perform Windows updates or upgrade the system to Windows 10.

How should I resolve this issue?

Hi,

We are planning to upgrade windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 pro.

I have realised that Windows 10 pro volume license does not exist. I can only buy either OEM or digital license directly from Microsoft.

They only have Windows 10 E3 or E5 availble via CSP but not sure if I can convince the client to buy this as I think it's not needed. So about 30 PCs, if moving to windows 10 Pro with a digital license, they will cost a lot $339 AUD per license. I have upgraded one of the PCs to Windows 10 Pro using a media ISO tool from MS website and this PC shows it is activated. 

Some people say if activation says it is activated but it does not mean you have a license. I am not quite sure if there are any options. How do you guys upgrade your 7 pro machines to 10 pro?

I have a WCF Service which is hosted in IIS on my Windows 7 PC and  it has the following data contract defined:

 
  [DataContract]
    public class RtnFromServiceParms
    {
        [DataMember]
        public string passedUserId { get; set; }
        [DataMember]
        public string passedBadgeId { get; set; }
        [DataMember]
        public string passedUserName { get; set; }
        [DataMember]
        public string passedEnv { get; set; }
        [DataMember]
        public string passedSecLvl { get; set; }

        ..
 ..

        public RtnFromServiceParms()
        {
            passedUserId = " ";
            passedBadgeId = " ";
            passedUserName = " ";
            passedEnv = " ";
     passedSecLvl = " ";

        ..
 ..

        }
    }

Open in new window


//
// In the server application MyRtnFromServiceParms is a new instance of RtnFromServiceParms()
//
MyRtnFromServiceParms = new RtnFromServicParms();


From the client application the service is called as follows:

//
// Call to Service      
//
MyRtnFromServiceParms = client.NextTransactionSeq(MyPassToServiceParms);

However in my client WebForm1.aspx I am getting an error "Webform1.MyRtnFromServiceParms is inaccessible due to its protection level"  In WebForm1.aspx.cs references to MyRtnFromServiceParms are not showing any error.

We recently migrated 14 users to Windows 10 from Windows 7.  The server they connect to was an SBS2008 server.  Since the change, searching on shared drives through Windows 10 has been painfully slow or either doesn't work when searching for files, contents, folders, etc.  Since then, we ended up replacing their SBS2008 server with Windows 2016.  After doing some research, supposedly this was suppose to help and/or fix the searching  (we didn't replace the server for this reason though).
Is Windows 10 search just simply broken and doesn't work like previous versions of Windows or is there specific settings that need to be changed on each PC/Server for it to work?  I've already gone through Indexing, rebuilding search index, restarting windows search, modifying search contents, etc, but it hasn't worked.

How can I bypass Vasco Digipass log in when connecting with RDP?
We have many Windows 7 blades/workstations that are accessed for admin activities through RDP. When there is a need to log in, we must provide credentials for RDP, then choose "Other User" and provide log in credentials again. This is not a big deal when there is a one-off need, but extremely time consuming when multiple systems must be logged in to. I am aware that there are many ways to accomplish our admin duties through PowerShell, and we do. Systems can only be accessed by RDP through admin accounts, so there is no real security worry. Any direction is appreciated.

Currently using office 2016 (365) and windows 7 64 bit.  I have noticed that some users outlook will go blank when they click off off of an email and go to use something else.  Its almost as if it is a security feature to stop people from reading your emails.  When the user clicks back into the email the text will come back.  One thing that I did notice is that when the email is maximized it will not do it.  Any ideas?

Windows 7 - 64 Bit.  Had been working fine.   When you click the icon, you get an hourglass for a couple of seconds and then it goes away.   You see two instances of Chrome in task manager, but they go away after about 30 seconds.

Here is what I have done all to no avail:

1.  Tried starting Chrome in Safe Mode
2.  Uninstalled & Re-Installed chrome (told it to delete the settings)
3,  Deleted Chrome registry entries and deleted the "Chrome" folder in both %appdata% and %localappdata%
4.  Tried running as administrator.   Also checked rights under security.
5.   Ran the netsh winsock reset routine
6.   Rebooted the computer multiple times.
7.   Turned off Anti-Virus and Firewall temporarily.
8.   System restore to a date/time where it was working.

Have tried running from a desktop shortcut, task bar & directly from the program folder.  Internet Explorer works fine, but we need Chrome as some websites we use don't render well under IE.

I’ve just been upgraded to a new Office thin client type desktop computer Dell Wyse 5070 (one of those where we have a thin client and all the processing of everything is being done on a central server).  Had a junior IT guy set up my system and something is not right, I don’t believe it is a central admin policy setup because I can do everything I want on a Firefox app.

1.      My Google account Sync is paused when I open Chrome
2.      My extensions like session buddy, amazon tool and various other extensions do not load but my Cisco webex is the only extension that loads when I open Chrome (without logging in)
3.      I am forced to login each time before my web site passwords etc pull down
4.      My previous tabbed sessions do not load

How do I fix all these issues?  It was semi working on the first day I got this new computer but because I complaint about my bookmarks and links not syncing automatically when I opened Chrome, he said that my profile was corrupt and did something such that now, the book marks are there but all my extensions disappear the moment I restart my PC.

Hello,

I'm trying to install the driver of the ViBook on my Mac Mini where i have installed Windows 7 and I have removed totally Mac Os. The ViBook is an old adapter that allows to use more than one screen with the same graphic card. It seems that it does not work in my situation. The error that I get is the following :

"DisplayLink installer has detected that your mobile Intel 945 Express chipset family graphics drivers could have compatibility issues when used with DisplayLink software. It is reccomended that you check your laptop manufactures or graphics card vendor website for an updated graphics driver before using DisplayLink software"

This is what I see on the screen 2

Hello Experts,
I have a remote client that is replacing her Windows 7 PC with a Windows 10 PC.  She has large shared file(s) on her W7 PC (that are accessed by others on the same LAN in her office) exceeding 120GB.    She wants the shared file(s) to be on her W10 PC to maintain ownership but still wants them to be accessible by everyone else (on Windows 7 PC's).
Can someone provide step-by-step instructions on how I can walk her through accomplishing this?

Thanks!
