Hi,

We're prepping to roll out Windows 10 Education to an entire school campus. We're facing an issue with creating image; can't seem to completely uninstall Windows 10 Store and apps that comes with it (XBox, Cortana, Zune Music, Twitter, Bing, etc). I've ran powershell commands that uninstall apps but as soon as I log in as another user, those apps magically reappear. This seems to be a popular thread but I have not been able to come up with a solution using GPO or any local changes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I'm trying to install Windows 10 Enterprise on a HP ProBook 450 G5.  It gets to the "select partition" then complains about "Windows cannot be installed on this disk.  The selected disk has an MBR partition table.  On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks."  HP Support has an article for this that suggests boot to BIOS navigate to
Storage > Boot Order > Disable EFI Boot Sources.  I don't have storage option see attached.  I can't seem to find where to disable EFI Boot sources.

Thanks in advance

I have two relatively small Excel Files.  I'll refer to one as a target file and the other as a source file.

I'm hoping to have a macro residing in the target file that when run will copy data from specific cells in the
used range of the source file to specific cells in the target file or copy the sum of multiple cells (I'm dealing
with numerical data...specifically currency) in the source file to specific cells in the target file.

For example, let's say I want the following:

1.  Copy the value in cell C10 of the source file to cell A2 of the target file.

2.  Add the values in cells B7 and G4 of the source file and copy the result into cell B1 of the target file.

3.  Save the target file.


I don't care if the source file name has to be hardcoded into the macro or if both files need to be placed in the same folder
or if the user is prompted to navigate to and select a file through windows explorer or whatever. Just as long as it's explained
to me how to arrange things to get it to work.  Thank you.

Getting an error message with all excel files that contain macros - Windows Malware protection (see attached note that pops-up)

Windows blue pop-up says that it detected malware and windows defender is removing it and then when I open the file the macros are gone!

Worked fine a week ago

Verified that  macros are enabled in the Excel trust center

Hi peeps

Is there a way of grabbing the configurations of a Windows 7 machine and then somehow having all of the applications and configurations made to that machine exported into a virtual terminal services server (on 2008R2 or 2012 depending on application compatibility) so that when you log onto that TS server it has the same applications/configs as the Windows 7 machine?

Is the easiest way for me to use something like Acronis to clone the application sections? Or is something like this possible using Vmware products?

I have Vmware Esxi 5.5 running on our infrastructure.

Thanks for helping

I have 5 computers. 3 are Windows 10 and 2 are Windows 7. I am trying to set up networking across my machines. I've started with 2 Windows 10 and have enabled networking on them and have removed the requirement for user name and password. My main machine doesn't see the other machine or vice versa. My machine no longer has a homegroup as per the latest Windows 10 update. The other machine does but I would rather not use it since it is going away.  What do I need to do to correct this problem?

I have a new Windows 10 workstation that I configured in our Workgroup and then brought into our domain.  Before joining the domain, however, it pulled the latest Windows 10 update (1803) down from Microsoft for installation and is now prompting me to install.  As 1803 causes documented issues with some of our software, I do not want this version installed (and have declined it in WSUS).  Is there a way for me to clear this pending update without allowing it to update then rolling it back?

I tried resetting the Windows Update agent (using this script: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Reset-Windows-Update-Agent-d824badc/view/Discussions#content) with no luck.

Thanks in advance!

To whom it may concern,

I have been asked by a client to provide advice for a decision on whether to use Windows 2012 vs. Windows 2016. My client is risk-averse but interested in maintaining a degree of currency with technology.

I have been having difficulty finding independent analysis. In other words, advice that is not infused with vendor-marketing, so I can give truly objective advice.

Can anyone assist me with links to sites, publications, data, etc.?

Thanks,

Dan

Whenever I type EHR in Windows Live Mail, it converts to HER.  I have deleted both EHR and HER from my AutoCorrect Options List in Word.  And this problem doesn't occur in Word.  But I can't get it fixed in Live Mail.

Server: Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard
Function: Running Windows FTP Server

I have an FTP server and one of the accounts keeps getting locked out. I'm trying to determine HOW it's getting locked out.  It's obvious that it's coming from too many incorrect password attempts, but is there anyway to determine what IP address it is coming from on the WINDOWS side?

Thank you!

Hi guys

I did a P2V of a Windows 7 64-bit machine with the Vmware converter. However, I would like to now run this on our Esxi servers.

I am running Vmware 5.5.  I have tried adding the .vmx file to the inventory and that showed it as 'invalid'. So I created a new VM and removed the original disk and added a new existing disk and proceeded for it to see the location of the .VMDK file. When I powered it up, I got an error about the scsi drive I believe. I deleted the VM like an idiot and so I forgot the actual error.

Is there a way you would recommend for this to work?

Thanks for helping

I ran into a very unusual problem this week.  A client called to note that their network / Internet connections were very slow on one computer.
The server is Windows 2008 R2 and the computer is Windows 7.
On the computer, I tested pinging and ipconfig and the replies from both were VERY slow, 15 to 20 seconds for the reply to come back.
I updated the BIOS and network drivers and Windows 7.  None of this helped.
I logged into the computer as the network Admin and the problem has disappeared!
I am looking for a rational reason for this.  Any helpful hints would be appreciated.
I'd like to be able to log back into this computer as the regular user.  Could this be the result of a bad user profile on the server?  Do I need to create a new users?

Thanks!

Hi,
I need to setup this kind of environment:
OS: Windows 7 professional 64bit
web server: Apache
database: SQL server 2008 (or even 2012)
lang: PHP 5.6.35

I need to provide PHP connection to SQL server.
I downloaded XAMPP from this url:

https://www.apachefriends.org/it/download.html

I noticed that PHP is compiled without SQL Server support :

(from phpinfo):
 "--without-mssql" "--without-pdo-mssql"

How can I solve my issue?
Thank you very much
