Microsoft Windows XP is the sixth release of the NT series of operating systems, and was the first to be marketed in a variety of editions: XP Home and XP Professional, designed for business and power users. The advanced features in XP Professional are generally disabled in Home Edition, but are there and can be activated. There were two 64-bit editions, an embedded edition and a tablet edition.

I just created a backup to acronis true image.  

The program created three TIB files.  

_v1 - (2g)
_v2- (4g)
_v3- (4g)

Any ideas why the program created 3 files?

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

I have sysprepped my Win 10 install (generalize, audit, shutdown)

Now the computer is shutdown.  Are my next steps the following:

1) boot to Acronis Win 10 PE bootable recovery media (CD)
2) clone image to USB drive?

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Windows XP is not supported with Nutanix.  I am guessing because SMB 1 v.s. SMB 2 protocol.
When we try to browse a share it says System Error 71 ”This remote computer has reached its connection limit" but that is not true because others can connect to this share on the SAN.
It is only XP so I'm wondering if there is a software we can run that uses SMB2 and would allow this to map or any other tricks.

Have Ubuntu 16.04 running as a VM.  Would like to utilize to allow *Windows 98 clients (yes I know Windows 98) to connect to share files.
 Keep getting a IPC$ password prompt, but the password doesn't work.   This would be a completely segmented and closed network - no Internet.
Cannot get the clients to connect to the SMB share.

*The customer currently uses old cardmaking printers and software that only works with Windows 98.  A Novell server is still being used to share
files.  Want to replace the Novell fileserver before it dies.   Eventually, they will be replacing all the printers and software, but who knows when!

My client asked me to get the programs and data from an old PC.   Its an old 386/486 that defines the tracks, sectors and cylinders in the bios.   (an IDE drive with no partition table).   I tried connecting its drive via USB to a newer PC, but none of the data is visible using windows 7, Windows XP, DOS 6.22, Hiren's boot disk, etc. on the newer PC,  probably because there is no partition table.  Its too much data (over 30gb) to try to copy with 750kb or 1.4mb diskettes and those PCs don't have CD drives.  

I was able to get a sector by sector image copy to a USB drive -- And plan to try to restore it to a newer drive, but I doubt that will solve anything -- since it will probably restore without a partition table.  

Many years ago I used to have all sorts of great DOS based tools for this sort of thing.  Some may still exist in my basement or one of the software archive sites, but at my age, I don't remember which to use or how they worked.   I'm guessing an old pre-Windows XP might be able to read this data and be able to write to a partitioned drive (I don't believe those old versions knew about USB).    

Any help would be much appreciated.

My thumb drive folder is  "read-only" if  I  look at its property under Window 7.  When I tried to un-check the box it seemed did it at the moment, but after I click "OK" and look at it again, it's still there!  I just can't get the read-only box unchecked.  On the other hand, I can still put new files and new folders in this so-called  "read-only" with no problem, and only to notice some user program I created failed to access this read-only folder with a " access denied" error. Strange to me --- but if I any experts can provide a solution or enlight me with knowledge of what's happening, I would highly appreciated.

Thanks

I have a Windows computer, with a Seagate 1 TB drive as my C drive.  The drive is about 6 years old.

Starting yesterday, my computer is running extremely slow.

When I look at the task manager, the CPU usage fluctuates between 0% and 1%.

I ran Symantec Quick-Scan and no viruses were found.

When I try to open windows explorer, it takes about 30 seconds to open, when ususally it appears in under 2 seconds.

There are no other programs running.

I did run Seagate Sea Tools, quick test of the hard drive, and no problem was found.

What could be the cause of the computer / internal disk drive to run slow?

Why Diversity in Tech Matters

Kesha Williams, certified professional and software developer, explores the imbalance of diversity in the world of technology -- especially when it comes to hiring women. She showcases ways she's making a difference through the Colors of STEM program.

I have shadow copies enabled on the c:\ of a Windows 2012 server, I currently have it set to the below configuration;

Maximum Size: 35MB
Schedule: Twice a day at 06:00 and 13:00

The server also has Acronis Backup installed and running multiple backup jobs to a local NAS and also to Acronis Cloud.

I've noticed that the shadow copy setting maximum constantly resets to no limit but I can't understand why.

Please can someone offer any advise on why this occurs and how best to stop this being reset.

Hey everyone -- I originally came to Experts' Exchange to address a bedeviling c0000218 blue-screen error, but the discussion has kind of splintered a bit, so I'm going to open a new question.

In the original question, the consensus seems to be that the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBCD4Win) is the best method of repairing the registry error which is preventing me from booting my computer. The original source for the program is now defunct, but it still exists around the Internet largely as freeware. Though I'm convinced that the program may end up doing the job I need, it's been a bedeviling journey just to create the necessary file(s) to carry out the process. Several attempts to create or use the program have not ended successfully so far, and I'm at wits end to understand why. I will detail one of the more recent attempts below; to follow some of the previous attempts, start with this comment on my other question; you could work upward or downward from there, I guess.

After a recent failed attempt to build an .iso file from the program, I took a closer look at the log and found a pair of errors which caused the build to fail. As suggested by another forum user who commented on my update to the original topic, it turns out that the Windows XP operating system I'd been using to facilitate the build was corrupted by a couple of missing registry files, as the image below will show.

I am creating a Windows 10 image to deploy.   Before I do so, I want to run the Windows 10 decrapifier (available on Spiceworks).

Is the following the correct order of events to image the laptop:

1) login as a local admin, run the decrapifier
2) run Sys Prep
3) create TIB file using Acronis boot CD, and USB stick to store image on.

Hello,

I am Unable to add XP machines to server 2016 domain - "The specified network name is no longer available"

This is a new domain and so far I have had no issue adding other 2016 servers in to same domain.

Net logon i set to Automatic
Workstation and server services are running

I can ping FQDN of the domain controller

No AV running

I am just stuck on what it could be?  I know its not ideal to have XP but several of our users still support some VB6 3rd party components that do not work on Windows 7 or above.

Acronis:  I have a server and I want to make a copy of it using Acronis Backup AdvancedWS_11.7, now I want to make this server virtual, put it as hyperV, can I do that with Acronis? or is there any other tool that you know of?

Thank you everyone.

I wish to cancel a backup which appears to be running without my starting it.
The PC is running windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I am using Acronis Backup version 12 which is described when I click the "About" button as follows:

Web console service: v.12.0.2607

Backup management server: v.12.0.3622

Backup management console: v.12.0.6081

When I launch backup Exec in Microsoft explorer using Http://localhost:9877/

And observe the Status it indicates that a backup is being performed with 52% complete.

I normally manually start backups and wish to start another backup without waiting for this backup to complete.

How can I cancel the backup that is running (or any backup that is running).
Powerring down the PC and poering up again makes no difference, even with the MMS service stopped (Acronis Managed Machine Service)

Dear all,

One of my client has 4 laptops two of them are WINDOWS XP and others are WIN 7.

He is asking me if there is a possible way to take an image from these laptops and put them on a virtual client like VMWARE, Oracle.... etc.

Please share with me a software that can do that please.



Note: He does not have windows server.

We are attempting to run a Windows XP system in VMWare Workstation that was converted from a physical to virtual. We used VMWare converter to create a virtual image of an existing physical system. When we boot XP VM it wants us to activate with Microsoft. At this point we cannot even get into the system, so until we can activate the system is useless. I have never seen it not let you at least get into the OS. I just want to make it clear that the physical XP system is working fine, but after the P -> V we cannot get into the virtual system. I tried changing the product key but nothing is working. I even contacted our department that handles our Microsoft Volume Licensing and he said they don't even have Windows XP x86 license keys listed anymore. Finally, I used the phone number on the activation screen and called Microsoft. They said Windows XP is not supported and really didn't offer much help. Unfortunately upgrading this system is not an option as the unique software installed the system is no longer available.

How can I get this system activated? Someone at work recommended using sysprep on the system. Is this because this is an HP system that has an OEM version of Windows XP which will only run on an HP? The host system is a Dell system that is running Windows 10. That's why I wanted to change the serial but it's not taking it.

Lastly, when we converted this physical we set both the XP physical and the Dell Windows 10 machine to local IP addresses as to not put …

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

There's a request for "Change runbook" that documents/records changes from Day 1
so that in the event of bad changes (malicious or inadvertent ones) being introduced
over along the line of changes, we can rebuild a server/system back selectively,
dropping the "bad" change so that we can bring up the system to a "clean" slate.

Was told it's not "Change Control" nor CRs that we are looking at here.

I've suggested that a 'bare metal' backup be done with incremental backups (think
EMC has one such product) but this is not what the team requires.

Any document, tools or method are much appreciated.

I have a number of robots which are actually computers running xp sp3 which are connected to a windows 2003 server domain.,

I would like these computers to auto-log in when the power is first applied, using a domain account, instead of stopping at the log in screen.

I've gone to the users section of the control panel and the message You can not change this users password appears.  I suspect that's because the user is a domain account.

Can anyone help?

I have a very old 2U LaCie Ethernet Disk which has a proprietary Windows XP Embedded software installed. I recently moved it from one physical location to another in a server rack and since then can no longer access it over the network as it won't accept the network credentials.



I can connect a KB/Mouse and monitor to the machine and see it boot up, I can then input the admin username/pw and boot into this special XP Embedded. I can see the data on the drive via a "Backup Wizard" but there is no traditional windows explorer.



There are no diagnostic issues present on the drive and the firewall for the drive is completely disabled. I can even connect to this drive via Remote Desktop Connection and see the same as if I connect directly.

However, if I try to access the drive contents via a networked computer using the IP address in order to map the drive... I'm presented with the prompt to Enter network credentials but it won't accept the admin password at this point, despite accepting those same credentials on login and via Remote Desktop Connection. I know the credentials are right because it's the same admin credentials for all of our network drives.

The disk itself is visible/detectable via the LaCie network assistant but it displays a message that it "Cannot list the device volumes. See the [web] Dashboard for more information." Clicking on the provided button to open the web access dashboard opens my browser …

Hi

This page Enables you to Download virtual machines

Test Microsoft Edge and versions of IE8 through IE11 using free virtual machines you download and manage locally.

It's pre-built just have load them and they work

Anyone know if there is similar for Windows XP?
I need a VirtualBox


Do I need to build from scratch using a DVD?

When I got here, I believe the XP Service Pack 3 PC connected fine to their Win10 Pro PC, which they use as their "server" to share files.  Now I have replaced the Win10 PC with a newer one--and now I can't connect their XP PC to it.  I can successfully ping from XP to Win10 PCs, but when I try "Net Use F: \\Whse\F-Drive" like all the other PCs on the LAN use, I get:

"System error 64 has occurred.  The specified network name is no longer available."

I have tried many things that do NOT work--including similar questions on e-e--but I'm hoping someone here will know what WILL work to solve the problem.  TIA
