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?

Turned on my HP Probook (win 7 pro) laptop and all I get is a white cursor.  Been like that for about an hour.  Safe mode the same thing.  Did a system restore back to the 7th of July and I still get the cursor.  Any ideas on what to try?

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 am moving from one computer to another. I have 3 Outlook 2016 profiles. I have moved all 3 profiles to new computer. How do I determine which profile is using which Stream_Autocomplete file for nickname cache. It seems to be working fine on 2 profiles but not the 3rd. I have access to the C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache folder from both computers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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!

Cloud Class® Course: Amazon Web Services - Basic

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

I'm looking into allowing users to remote desktop into their office computers, but currently we have both roaming profiles and remote desktop profiles enabled.  I'm wondering what would happen when the user logs into his computer during the day and locks his computer, but doesn't log off.  Then, attempts to connect via rdp to the same computer later on in the day using the same account.  What type of profile would be used in this scenario? Since he logged in locally, I would assume that the roaming profile gets synchronized at login, but if he then chooses to log off in the remote session, does the logoff trigger a sync with the roaming or remote profile?

a c ouple of times i added a drive to my test PC - to make a backup
when accessing the users folder, it asked as Always for permission - granted and all is fine

 - BUT had following problem, when i put the disk back in the Original pc i could not open several programs, or shortcuts
programs did not run as usual, etc, see screenshot
s
as an example, OUTLOOK opens and shows the mail tekst - but not the attachments ; he can send mail, but not receive
etc; it also reports for all programs : cannot open, or write to files - - so it looks like a file authorisatioon problem
in start - i s ee the proper user though
i have had this with another disk  some months ago, and never found the reason

the system is running 2 OS : win 7 and win 10 in Dual boot - MBR formatted
does this have  something to do with it?  oh yes - there's nothing wrong with the disk either

In my home network there is an Active Directory domain, and I am using my Active Directory account in this domain to login to my PC, because using this account to login allows me to access some resources in the home network. This AD account also has administrative permission on my PC.

Assuming the domain controller of the AD domain has a chance to fail and stop working, then I will not be able to login with the AD account, but need to use local account. In this situation, if I have files saved at desktop, or any account specific location of the AD account, then I will have a bit trouble to get them back.
-- login with local account with Admin permission
-- explore into the user folder in system drive (C:).
-- find the files and copy them to local account desktop (or other folder).

To resolve this issue present at the situation of failing AD domain, I am wondering: can I setup an AD account in Windows 7/8/10 that allows user to login when the AD domain is down?

This seems defeating the definition of an AD account, but I still wondering whether an account can be setup to work with domain when it is available, and work as a local account when domain is down...

If this is not doable, then ideas to prepare to handle the situation when AD domain is down would be welcome.

Thank you!

I don't think this is the Adobe FileOpen plugin as neither of these users have any adobe products; nor does FileOpen appear in the Programs and Features list. I'm always wary of files that spontaneously appear on Windows computers. Also, the office is actually closed today, so there's no chance these users downloaded something deliberately. Does anyone know what this is?

Running WampServer 2.2 on a Windows 7 platform, a problem has developed.  I am unable to start the WampApache service.  There are Event Viewer errors specifying a syntax error at the line which designates the documentroot, and the statement "DocumentRoot must be a directory".  The document root IS a directory, and I have not changed hppd.conf for many years.  WampServer worked fine until just now.  I experimented with the syntax, even changing the DocumentRoot to "C:\", and got the same errors.  I am inexperienced with this application, and would appreciate suggestions.

I am using a win 10 surfacepro. In windows 7 you were able to copy desktop icons from one profile to another. How do you do that in WIN 10? I do not want to make it public where all profiles see it. When I look at desktop under my profile I do not see my desktop icons. Is Win 10 that different?

I have an Access Database that is a main menu, that will open other Access Databases. What is now happening, is that when I press a button to open a database.  The new DB flashes orange in the taskbar and I must click on the task bar to open it.
The menu has been working for years. But, has suddenly broken. The OS is Windows 7. I have copied the database to another Windows 7 machine and it exhibits the same behavior.
The code snippet is as follows, any guidance would be deeply appreciated:

Dim ReceivedData, ChooseForm As String
 Dim appAccess As Access.Application
 Dim DestPath As String
 Dim filepath, filename As String
    filename = "PAPER PRODUCTS.mdb" '
    DestPath = "C:\My Documents\Test\"
    filepath = DestPath & filename
    Set appAccess = New Access.Application
    appAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase filepath, True
    appAccess.Visible = True
    appAccess.RunCommand acCmdAppMaximize
    Set appAccess = Nothing

TIA
John

Hi,

I am replacing an internal HD with an SSD as the current mechanical drive is beginning to fail.  The current disk is dynamic so I cannot clone it using the provided software.  Easiest thing that I think I can do is backup the current drive using Acronis and restore to new disk.  How would I then make the new drive bootable, so it could take over from the old drive?

We have recently moved to Windows 10 from Windows 7 OS. We are using Lotus Notes 9(9.0.1) Social Edition and IBM Domino Designer 9.0. Our problem is that agents that we run in IBM Domino Designer that works in Windows 7 and now did not in Windows 10. I only have user access to our Windows 10. Also tried running the IBM Domino Designer using Run As Administrator but same thing happen. The agents pull data from a Microsoft SQL 2012 to the Lotus Notes database

What do we need to setup or configure to be able to run again all the agents in Windows 10 user account?

I need to know how to create a GPO group policy to Deny Users the ability to save files to their computers C drive and Desktop, when they login to the Domain.
The GPO should be applied to the " Computer " not the users account to deny access.

They are logging into a Windows 2008r2 environment, and their computers are Windows 7.
