I have a weird problem in Sage Payroll 50. When the user tries to File > backup the windows that opens is more of an explorer view of the file system with no save button or field where it displays the file name and extension. There is no way to save.

When looking at other functions of Sage it would seem a wizard is the first thing that is normally presented first. The backup function seems to be missing a wizard.

Real odd problem

I  own a mouse purchased from Amazon described as "Runsen Gaming Mouse Wired LED Optical 9 Buttons with 1200/1600/2400/3200 DPI for Pc/Mac/Notebook(7 Colors Breath LED Backlight )(Black)"

There are 50+ positive reviews on it. However, try as I  might I have been unable to get TWO SIMPLE ITEMS. I need a driver for  Windows 10 and the  user manual....IN  ENGLISH.

I have followed the instructions  of the seller to no avail. What am I missing here? This  should be a 5 minute  install at most. Can  any expert assist me in gettting this simple item working?

NOTE: This wired mouse DOES basically function, however I have no idea how to program macro functions into any of the extra buttons of the mouse or take advantage of the features it mentions that it has. I DID try to install, as best I could, the driver in CHINESE but to  be honest I have NO idea what I did or didn't do.

I just purchased a new Dell laptop for a customer - booted up fine out of the box, did all of the Windows updates, no problem - rebooted a few times, still no problem.  Turned it off and put away for customer - turned on and get spinning dots on startup.  Ran diagnostics, no issues.  Turned off UEFI secure boot, no difference.  One time after I removed battery and hit power button for 30 sec and replaced battery; I got it to come up to recovery options and tried to reset PC but said it could not do it - any thoughts on what to do?

Good Morning,

I was asked to help out a friend. He has 2 windows 10 desktops joined to a domain. The problem that he is having with these desktops is that he cannot access the following sites.

https://en.wikipedia.org/
https://outlook.microsoft.com

The desktops in question receive a certificate error message and will not allow you to proceed any further. All machines running Windows 7 are not affect with this same problem. From my troubleshooting and it seems that the issue is with the HSTS, I installed chrome, firefox, used edge and IE all browser have the same issue.

Here are the things that I have tried.

- Verified Firewall was turned off
- Verified UAC was off
- Check all Group Policies
- reset the certificate index
- Did the MS Regfix for disabling HSTS check
- All updates applied

Any suggestion would be great.

Thank you,

Does anyone no where I can download a trial version of Windows 7, I'm looking to test out an app and want to do it on a clean install and don't want to have to purchase a license to do so, these iso's used to be easily available, now you can't get them without a product key.

Some of my users have a workflow process whereby they create a folder and create and work on the files in a folder in a shared drive (located on a Windows 2008 Server).  When one department is finished with their work they move that folder to a different location on that shared drive.  My problem comes when they try to move that folder.  They get an error message that states that a file in that folder is still open.  However I have verified that it is not.  I can get on the server and go to the File Services role and check the Manage Open Files and see that there are no files open.  It will show that the user does have the folder open (when on the computer he does not).  If I close that open session then we can move the files.

While troubleshooting this I did find that the thumbs.db file was sometimes not releasing so I added a group policy that would stops computers from creating them.  That helped a little I think.

All of my users are on Windows 7 PCs.

I have a VMWARE SBS2011 instance.  I have new hardware that I want to put it on.  When the instance was created it was done at the max size and we have an issue in that it will not save off correctly and migrate.  We have spent hours on it trying to get it to migrate.   It has something to do with the version of VMWare.  The SBS has some issues with DNS, etc.  And again, have spent hours trying to fix these issues.  We were hit with a ransomeware and I feel that that corrupted something possibly.  

I would like to Create a new VMWARE SBS on the new hardware.  If I do that, then I am looking at breaking the domain for the clients.  Is there are any way to migrate those profiles without having to break off the clients from the current domain and reconnect them to the new domain.  We have all kinds of software and email on those clients.  
Any help would be appreciated.

Hello,
I'm not familiar with the Windows 2016 licensing system.
I ask myself the following question. I am offered a promotional offer with a minimum of 16 licenses to buy.
If I get 16 Windows 2016 Server Datacenter licenses, it may cover 32 cores, if I understand correctly. These 32 cores can be distributed on 2 servers? for example: 2 servers bi-processors of 8 cores?
There is no limitation on the number of virtual machines (VmWare in my case), on each of the two servers. Is it correct?
Thank you for your answers.

Hi gurus,

I have AIX (7100-04-04-1717) lpar with installed following packets:
bos.cifs_fs.rte           7.1.4.31    C     F    Runtime for SMBFS
bos.cifs_fs.smit           7.1.0.0    C     F    SMIT Interface for SMBFS

This lpar was successfully mounting share on W2k8 R2 until recently change on windows server. Change on windows side was disabling smbv1 protocol. Since then, there is no way to mount this share again. I have asked my colleagues to turn smbv1 back on, until I figure out how to solve this. When they turn smbv1 protocol  on, I can mount the share again. IBM does not provide any support for cifs, and I can't find any official document claiming that this client can't be used for higher smb protocols than smbv1.

I even installed samba 4.1 on AIX, and with smbclient tool I can connect to windows share forcing higher protocol versions ( -m SMB3), but this is not a solution, because I must have permanent file system mounted on aix. So this is not a valid solution.  
Does anyone have a  idea on how to solve this, or any link to official documentation which I can use to prove that this is not supported?
Or if I am trying something in wrong way , please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Igor

Flexible connectivity for any environment
Flexible connectivity for any environment

The KE6900 series can extend and deploy computers with high definition displays across multiple stations in a variety of applications that suit any environment. Expand computer use to stations across multiple rooms with dynamic access.

I have a workstation with two NIC the only use of this PC is for the vm

In hyper-v there is a option to optimize/maximum bandwidth for vm to designate one NIC for the vm only by not Allowing management operating system to share this network adapter

Is this option available with VMWare

I am glad you figured it out. I was going to say that the behavior is by design. In fact, I have that setting specifically enabled... :-)

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. Outlook 2010 connected to mail on their Office 365 accounts but this is strange. Right now it looks like it is only happening on one computer. Yesterday she had a PDF blocked. The sender simply re-save and re-attached it and the second time Outlook did not block it.

Today she had a Word document blocked but an hour later she got another Word document from the same sender and she was able to open it. It is almost as if the two blocked were flukes. Nothing consistent about this.

She does also log in to a Terminal Server with Outlook 2010 and it blocked the same Word document as her local copy of Outlook 2010 did.

I have some older win 7 PCs that would be perfect for "thin clients"

I have installed fresh Windows 10 Version 1703 (OS Build 15063.413)

When I setup user in "ASSIGNED ACCESS" mode for Microsoft Remote Desktop app - the app gets stuck on "Connecting...."
Otherwise all seems to be working properly.

When the same user account is removed from "assigned access" mode - the Microsoft Remote Desktop app works fine and connects without any issues.

Any ideas how to fix this - or maybe there is a better solution to turn those PC's into "thin Client"

Hello!
I have a user who is on Outlook 2013. She cannot search her inbox effectively because her Indexing Status appears to be indexing several thousand items, but the number being indexed doesn't decrease after waiting for it to do so. We have Exchange 2016 on the backend, and she is on Windows 7 pro 64bit. Is there any way to reset the indexing functionality so that it can index the mailbox? Attached is an example of the notification I am referring to but it is from my own box so it reads 0.
