I have a new Lenovo E590 laptop joined to my domain but can't login as any user.  Is there a BIOS setting that can prevent this?  I am not sure what to make of it.  The laptop came with Windows 10 Pro, I just loaded Office, Adobe acrobat and joined it to the domain, moved it into the correct group in AD as I always do, but still can't login as any user only the local Admin.

I can't ping the DC from the laptop
I can't ping the laptop from the DC
I CAN ping other network computers from the laptop
I can't ping the laptop from other computers

It feels like there might be something on the laptop preventing login but I am not sure what, maybe in the BIOS.  Any ideas on where to start?

Dear Experts, I am trying to find a download location for Windows 10 Pro Feature Update 1809.  Microsoft just released Feature update 1904 so  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 provides access to 1904 only.  After the problems with 1809's initial rollout in October that forced Microsoft to pull the update and re-release it in November I have decided to stay behind 1 Update for corporate computers.  I can't seem to find a download location for 1809.

which attribute would give some clues as to which user saved a file on a windows file server (domain joined). I believe its running server 2012 if that is relevant.

I have an assignment where I have to send events to a syslog server from Excel VBA code without using any "external" helper/binary (ie. it has to be a self-contained Excel workbook used in Excel 2016  / win 10).

I have googled it and found a few .NET based sample code usually needing some additional library.

Any idea if this can be achieved using "pure" VBA / Windows API ?

Greetings experts,

Earlier today, one of my colleagues experienced an unusual problem with her laptop.. It is difficult to describe so here is a video instead: output.mp4

After a while in being in that state(shown in the video above), the blue screen of death appears.
xwindows-8-blue-screen-header.png.pa.png
Previously, this PC has been experiencing the blue screen of death very often and when it happened, the blue screen did not load the completion rate(Percentage) even after quite some time. It also did not load for this incident.

It will be helpful to know all the possible reasons from virus to hardware issues that might cause this. Any help is much appreciated! :)

Hi,

Weird problem here. I've got a Windows 10 VM that used to work. But now it always fails with an 0xc000021a error. I tried to google a solution but I have failed so far :(

I've tried running sfc /scannow as well as Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth (after having successfully booted in Windows 10 by using 'disable driver signature enforcement' in the 'startup settings' of the troubleshoot menu.

Any other ideas? Thanks!

Outlook 2010 is not working...I have no accounts and "Send/Receive" is not available.  I'm running on Windows 10 and have 2 identical "workstation-server" setups, one in Florida and one in New Jersey.  I purposely keep everything identical so that when I change my location, I can keep working as if I had never left (famous last words...).  So, I just left Florida with a complete "data file" backup of my 3 data partitions and, once I got to New Jersey I copied everything onto my workstation in NJ.  Everything is working great except for Outlook (which, for business reasons, is probably one of my most important applications).  I copied the PST file from my workstation in Florida to the workstation in NJ.  When I open Outlook, I can see that the calendar is fine, the actual emails are the current ones from Florida, however I can not "Send and Receive" any emails and I don't have any of my email accounts.  What I do have is a strange error message when I select the "File" tab:
Outlook-problem-after-changing-PST-f.JPG
I've done enough Google searches to convince me that the messages in the above screen have nothing to do with the problem.  At this point, unfortunately, because of my backup procedures, I don't have the original PST file that was on the New Jersey workstation before I overwrote it with the copy from Florida.  I also found no real answers from anything I read resulting from my searches (other than this appears to be a sporadic problem for Outlook users …

Downloaded and packaged an install for Office 2019 Pro Plus 64 bit (x64).  Configured the "configuration.xml" file as Microsoft recommended.  Trying to do the install, it starts out fine, uninstalls office 2016, starts the 2019 install but then hangs at roughly 10% and seems to go no further.  Not sure what is causing the issue but it hangs there.  Anyone experienced this and have a solution for it? Install behavior doesn't change from a network drive or local install.

PC's are Windows 10 x64 update 1809
Office install will be the 64 bit edition

Anyone else experience this?

I have two errors in my Windows Event Viewer (2k19 and 2k16, respectively), that I'm attempting to suppress from the Administrative Events view. I know that I cannot stop Events from coming in, so I'd like to create a custom view as my "go to".

In other words, I'd like to see the live Events coming in but NOT see two particular event ID's (0, 8019)

According to the best answer in , the best was to resolve this is to simply add a "-" before what I want to suppress.

I've done this, saved it and now all that's showing are the events I'm attempting to NOT see. In other words, I unintentionally created the opposite of what I want to see.

Can someone please let me know what I've done incorrectly here?

I have used a neat DLL by Alex Robbio called "MS Word Compare" succesfully on a 32bit WIn 7 machine, but I am unable to get it to work on a 64bit Win 10 machine. The DLL enables a user to compare two different MS Word documents - you highlight them in Windows Explorer, right click, and select the "Compare" line on the WE context menu and the DLL launches MS Word showing the differences between the two documents. See here

The problem is that on the 64bit machine that "Compare" line does not appear in the context menu.

I have registered the DLL, and when running Nir Soft's "ShellExView" it shows up as an enabled 32 bit shell extension.

I want to open/run the Windows 10 snipping tool from Access vba code. The code below produces the error "Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe' ". Of course the exe file is in that location. Outside of Access, the snipping tool runs as expected. Any ideas? Thanks.

Private Sub cmdSnippingTool_Click()
    Dim strProgramPath As String
    Dim lngResult As EnumShellExecuteErrors
    Dim ShellExecute As New CShellExecute
   
    lngResult = seeNoError
    strProgramPath = "C:\Windows\System32\SnippingTool.exe"
    Set ShellExecute = New CShellExecute
    lngResult = ShellExecute.LaunchProgram(strProgramPath, , , sesSW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)
   
    If lngResult <> seeNoError Then
      MsgBox "Error on LaunchDocument: " & lngResult
    End If
    Set ShellExecute = Nothing
End Sub

I'm at an administrator command prompt trying to work my way to a folder that has an ampersand in it, but each time I issue  the cd command, I'm left at the same spot and can't get to - i.e  Experts&Advice. Tried the caret-before-the-ampersand solution, which does not work, for me an apparently others. Thanks.

I did a scan of a medium-sized small business set of networks for ipv6 addresses.  I found from zero to 1/3 of the computers reporting ipv6 addresses.
So, I'm tempted to work toward consistency and either bind ALL the Windows interfaces to ipv6 or NONE.
But the networks have a mixed bag of network equipment and surely not all supports ipv6.
With NAT, I don't care about the world order.... which is what a large % of articles deal with.  Yes important but not my issue right now so.... yawn.
Also, I see that I can't resolve ipv6 addresses that are on the other side of our MPLS links.  That's probably due to the interfacing equipment.  But it sure points out that ipv6 ANYTHING isn't going to work over the MPLS links, eh?
Not wanting to revamp the network right now, I'm wondering if consistency is worth the trouble OR if consistency with ipv6 NOT bound to the interfaces isn't warranted?

In reading more about ipv6, I'm rather reminded of Global Warming.  Either one is a believer or not.  Well, I just don't approach such matters on the basis of "beliefs".  I'd much rather approach things on the basis of facts and knowledge and solid analysis.  
As I get it re: ipv6:
1)  the world needs it.  But I don't care about that right now.
2) Microsoft says "use it".  The only argument I've heard that seems a fact is: "Windows hasn't been tested without it".   So, we can't predict how Windows will act without it.  In some context, it's a fear tactic.  Now, if I could predict how …

I've a 3 TB Seagate backup drive and was looking for a file on it. I ran a search with Agent Ransack and it started showing folders that weren't showing in Windows Explorer.

I can go into these folders and see the files, but Windows Explorer isn't listing them. Also going into the command line and typing "dir" doesn't list them either.

I can type the folder names into Windows Explorer and see the contents.

I checked they aren't hidden. I checked the drive for errors - none were reported.

What's happening and how can I fix it?

I'm on Windows 10.

Windows 10 OS.

Copying 100 image files from a camera (using flashdrive) to a Folder on my desktop the following happened:
Somehow or other the  100 images ended up on my desktop (not the Folder). When I tried to move them into the Folder these 100 files began to copy themselves, with the result that my desktop has now almost 200 files, half of them copies. How do i sort out this situation (without losing the images from the camera flash drive).

I think I might have got myself into something more involved than I imagined.

I know a family that is quite poor and they have two young children 5 years and 7 years old. They cannot afford anything as far as toys go. I found two toy guitars and thought that they would be a nice gift. When I got them home I found that they are not self contained items. It showed that a dongle with a usb plug was needed. I was able to locate the dongles. I assumed (incorrectly) that they simply plugged into a windows 10 machine and they would be useful "funwise" for the children.

As it turns out I am fairly sure that they MUST be used exclusively with a Nintendo Wii gaming box. I will buy a used Wii box if needed but I am wondering if there is any possibility that they can be used with appropriate software with a windows machine. Or, must I buy a used Wii box? I am determined to see a smile on the faces of these two boys if I can get these "guitars" to function.

Nintendo named them "Fender Stratocaster" guitars. I don't now how they got away with that, but it does identify what items I have to work with. Does any expert have any bright ideas on how to implement these two items without any further major expense? Suggestions most welcome. Note: I am NOT a gamer and have no experience with any sort of gaming box.

I have a Windows Server 2016, which is also running 2 Hyper'-V's.

In logging into the host Server, it says Windows Updates need to be installed:

     Definition Update for Windows Defender Antivirus
     Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
     2019-05 Servicing Stack Update for Windows Server 2016
     Updates are ready to install
     Install Now
     ** A reboot of the host server is required after installing updates **


In logging into Hyper-V #1, it says Windows Updates need to be installed:

     Definition Update for Windows Defender Antivirus
     Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
     2019-05 Servicing Stack Update for Windows Server 2016
     Updates are ready to install
     Install Now
     ** A reboot of Hyper-V#1 is required after installing updates **

In logging into Hyper-V #2, it says Windows Updates need to be installed:

     Definition Update for Windows Defender Antivirus
     Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool
     2019-05 Servicing Stack Update for Windows Server 2016
     Updates are ready to install
     Install Now
     ** A reboot of Hyper-V #2 is required after installing updates **

My question #1 is:  Is there a particular order in which I should install the updates (host server first, then Hyper-V #1, then Hyper V #2) or does it matter?
My question #2 is:  Shall I click "Install Now" simultaneously on all three, OR one at a time after the previous installtion is completed?
