Preferred Solution: KaZaa users take note!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I receive many emails each day from forum members, and I try to reply to all of them (although I don't always succeed).One problem of late has been that replies I send to some AOL email addresses are being bounced - presumably because the spam-filtering on the AOL servers identifies my address - [email protected] - as a potential spam source. So, if you've written to me and haven't received a response you know the reason.

Time is Running Out for Win 2K users.

Full, free support for Windows 2000 officially ends on June 30th, 2005. After that deadline, the both client and server versions of Windows 2000 will go into the "extended" support cycle, where they will charge for it.

Last year, Microsoft announced that there would be a security-centered update rollup instead of releasing Service Pack 5. The rollup is going to require Service Pack 4 as a prerequisite. The update is due in mid-2005, but so far there has been no news on its progress.

Under the Microsoft's terms of support, they will only provide security-related patches during the product's extended support cycle. Non-security fixes are only available with a hot-fix agreement plan. Anyone without this service will not have access to these updates.

Windows 2000 is still the operating system of choice for many people and businesses. As this product moves into its extended support cycle, Microsoft is urging customers to migrate to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

We get a fair number of emails as you can imagine, and we try to respond to all of them (although at busy times some slip past us). I'm seeing more and more replies to AOL users bouncing, and this is no doubt the result of AOL's silly and draconian anti-spam measures. If you have emailed me from an AOL adress and haven't had a reply, that will be the reason.

I saw a posting about Kazaa being used for another company called Brilliant to used *your computer* for the unused space and CPU power. Are these files and Kazaa related?

With the widespread reports of system issues emanating from Windows Updates, I recommend everyone become familiar with SFC and DISM (google the terms).  Often your monitor will go blank and since you can't fix anything on a PC by Braille, the only solution is to completely power down.  Make sure your HDD LEDs are not showing activity before you shut down...  It could be that an update is being installed, (yes, this goes on while the screen is dark and it could take hours!) with the possibility of corrupting your BCD file (as happened to me).  Have a bootable OS media file available just in case.  You can do an OS repair if you have a bootable CD/USB media file, even if it is Windows 7.  As a matter of fact, I did this and was able to build a dual boot win7/win10 bcd.  If Windows 10 won't boot, I have a fall-back to Windows 7.

Hi there

Just because a law is passed in the US it doesn't automatically mean that it's legal OUTSIDE that particular jurisdiction (although due to various "enforcement methods" they by sheer economic muscle try and make it stick) - but they are trying to block DVDfab's payment processes -- a perfectly 100% LEGAL entity in the jurisdiction in which it operates.

Anyway if you live in the US and like ripping DVD's you *might* be better off in trying either to get the law changed or look for an alternative program. - If the US wins this one then AnyDVD / CloneDVD by Slysoft might be the enxt victims followed by VLC which really would screw up 100,000's of people who use that for their video playing.

A Note to Google Users on Net Neutrality:

The Internet as we know it is facing a serious threat. There's a debate heating up in Washington, DC on something called "net neutrality" and it's a debate that's so important Google is asking you to get involved. We're asking you to take action to protect Internet freedom.

In the next few days, the House of Representatives is going to vote on a bill that would fundamentally alter the Internet. That bill, and one that may come up for a key vote in the Senate in the next few weeks, would give the big phone and cable companies the power to pick and choose what you will be able to see and do on the Internet.

Today the Internet is an information highway where anybody no matter how large or small, how traditional or unconventional has equal access. But the phone and cable monopolies, who control almost all Internet access, want the power to choose who gets access to high-speed lanes and whose content gets seen first and fastest. They want to build a two-tiered system and block the on-ramps for those who can't pay.

Creativity, innovation and a free and open marketplace are all at stake in this fight. Please call your representative (202-224-3121) and let your voice be heard.

Thanks for your time, your concern and your support.

Hi. Back when I was in college and my computer was in a networking lab, we had to keep file sharing on Kazaa disabled so that we were only downloading files but others were not uploading files. They did this because it was clogging up the network with too much traffic going to and from our lab. However, now my computer is at home and I have a dialup connection rather than a T1 connection. I get a full 52kpbs on each connection. Well, my question is this, if I enable file sharing so people can upload from me, will this slow down my download speed at all on Kazaa? I have also heard that the higher the participation rating you have, the better the downloads you get. Is this true? Well, thanks for any advice or answers you can provide in advance.
 

Answer:Kazaa file sharing and Kazaa download speed...

First things first are we talking Kazaa or Kazaalite?

If it is Kazaa, I suggest you uninstall it and install KAZAALITE instead, thus removing spyware which is going to limit your download speed still further

Regarding the participation rating, allegedly so, but with Kazaalite, this is overridden, so it is immaterial

Your download speed can be affected, but you can limit the number of simultaneous uploads

As for the problem:

I have the amount of files allowed to download set to 50 and I am nowhere near this number. Once I do a release the files download or show more resources but it is a pain.

Question: Kazaa - Kazaa Lite

Hello there!

I am not too up to date on the Kazaa issue.

I found Kazaa lite, older versions for download, but everywhere else kazaa and kazaa lite aren't free anymore.

My girlfriend says Kazaa lite is UK based and you won't get arrested/sued for downloading with kazaa lite.

I really don't want to get her in trouble, I am not teh smartest man, but I try.

She hada copy of kazaa lite from soemone who had it on disk...

I just wanna know if there is a safe version to use, and or maybe a different/better program than Kazaa.

Also...

Does Kazaa/Kazaa lite ofeer any method of screening the peer-peer files ?

Or could someone attack a worm to an MP3 and you download it without your anti virus protection on and recieve it?

I haven't had to deal with any of this stuff at all. I am just a performance PC builder for gaming. I don't download anything, but my girlfriend does, perhaps the wisdom of the [H] will shine through yet again for this individual.

 

Answer:Kazaa - Kazaa Lite

Well since K-lite is an illegal program to use, this thread is a no-no, but i could be wrong. And i thought kazaa had a program called bulldog or something like that, that scanned the files you searched or downloaded, for viruses and worms.

Question: kazaa & Kazaa Lite

i noticed that in kazaa lite, i have a option to disable or enable port 1214 . i was just curious, it was under the privacy tab, how does this port effect me? even if im behind a firewall? or does it at all

Answer:kazaa & Kazaa Lite

From the Kazaa help file.

What Internet Providers might block Kazaa?

Possible Internet Providers blocking KaZaA:
AOL
Road Runner
Charter Communications
AT&T

Some Internet Providers block port 1214 which is key in making Kazaa Lite work. Some Internet providers don't block the port, but find other ways of blocking Kazaa (Lite) and other p2p applications. Read below on how to see if your port 1214 is blocked.

How can I see if port 1214 is blocked?

You can check this with a local port scanner. Make sure KaZaA Lite is running when you do the scan.

What can I do if port 1214 is blocked?

Usually when port 1214 is blocked, this is because of a firewall or a proxy server. With programs such as Socks2http or Http-Tunnel you can bypass these firewalls and proxies.

If you use Kazaa Lite 2.0.0 or higher there is another thing you can try:
Go to Kazaa Lite options. Go to the firewall tab. Change the port from 1214 to anything above 5000. For example use port 7000. This way you don't have to use any of the tunneling programs described above. Just as you have no restrictions. Now the first time you connect with this new port settings may take some time. As soon as you are connected for the first time, the next times it will connect much faster. If this trick does not work, then try some more ports. You can also try ports such as 21 and 80.

Answer:Multiple Windows 7 Users-Switch between Users-network stops working

When switching users, it's always a good idea to have User 1 close out any applications and documents they have open and then log out before User 2 logs in. It sounds like you have fast user switching enabled, but I'm not aware of that causing any network issues -- unless User 1 was doing something that required a network connect.
 
Check the Event Viewer for error logs from the time it froze when you tried to disable and enable the network adapter. Post the event ID and description here if you need help diagnosing the issue from the log files. Perhaps another fix is to disable fast user switching, so that users are always forced to log out before someone else can log in.

Can anyone help me regain Security Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder which I lost while looking at the access rights. I mistakenly closed the box while playing with the access rights and lost any access to the file.
I pulled the access rights to the file using icacls they are below.

application data
D:PAI(D;OICI;FA;;;WD)(A;;0x1200a9;;;WD)(A;OICI;FA;;;SY)(A;OICI;FA;;;BA)S:AI

I am thinking I can change the information in the file and restore it. Not sure exactly what to change?

I was also thinking I could pull the info from another computer running with the same operating system and reapply them to this file? Would this work?

I looked at Previous Versions of the upper level folder. Can I restore a previous version of this whole folder? Will it restore the Application Data folder with the prior permissions?

Answer:Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

Are you asking about the Application Data or Appdata folder?

If Application Data, this is not a real folder but a junction used to allow interface with legacy programs. No access is necessary since it is pointing to the Appdata folder.

hi guys,

really need some help on this one cause i cant seem to get how something that sounds so simple is so hard to do.


i got a client with a workstation that has a local user account on it.
they also have a domain which he has another account on there.

so i have local account joe1 and domain account joe2. now i need to get joe 1 to combind and merge outlook and my docs with joe2. and then get joe2 to stay on the server so that it remains a account that can be accesses on any computer on the domain network. with this in mind the user profile needs to be saved on the server and the profile can be copied to the computer that his sitting at when he loggs on.


anyway i can figure out how to move the local (joe1) account to the server (joe2)i have tried a command moveuser but i keep getting a parameter error on there (error 87) .

i typed it like this

moveuser joe1 (company doamin)\joe2 /c:\\(client machine)

please can anyone help me one this

Hi everyone,

I am the web masters of a local snowmobile club and our new website is having a few problems with printing. Please take a look at the site, http://www.strathroysnoblizzards.com/Strathroy_Sno-Blizzards/index.html

As you can see it has a black background which when printed on my Mac OS X has no problems with printing (it leaves out black background and keeps the text and images) and prints everything.

The problem is that one of our members are ticked that they can not print the site because of the black showing up above the text and images and I really don't want to change the background because it look good the way it is, so is there any way to change to printer settings or some ideas for him to help him out with this problem.

Second problem is that out of 4 pages, 2 are blank with nothing on it and there is suppose to be text and images on those pages, anyway how to fix this too?

Thanks Guys
 

Answer:Website printing??? (backgrounds causing problems with PC users but not Mac users)

Print background colors and images.

I don't remember when, but I availed myself of the free Windows 10 upgrade sometime back. I was using 8.1 and I had, at some point, moved C:\Users and all its associated folders to E:. Everything has worked fine and Win10 didn't have a problem. I did notice that there was still a C:\Users, but the only folder it contains is Administrator.

This was probably not a good move to make. Moving data folders, like Pictures, Documents, etc., is fine, but moving the actual User Profiles was not such a good idea. My E: drive is no longer large enough to hold all my photos and other data. I bought a replacement drive large enough, but having my Users Profiles on E: is now a problem and I want to move them back to C:, only without the data folders.

I can delete all the existing data files from those default folders (I have backed them all up), so now I need to find a way to restore the Users folder and contents to C:. I've tried researching the problem, but found nothing that specifically applies to my situation. The TenForums article, "Relocating Users folder on an existing Windows installation" Seems to be as close as I can get. Unfortunately, this part has made me take pause and ask you all for help:






Kari said:

Be sure that the drive into which you are relocating the Users folder is empty or at least does not contain any Windows system folders, especially Users folder or parts of it from any current or previous Windows install... Read more

Answer:Restore Users Profiles back to C:\Users without data folders

Jim McClain said:

Do you know what I should do? Maybe Kari's still around and can reply? Any guidance would be appreciated.



If you used the Sysprep method to relocate the Users folder to E: drive, you can use the same method to relocate it back to C: drive. The warning you quoted is when doing this in a clean install, it does not apply when moving Users folder back to C: drive which will always be accepted and OK for Windows.

Follow these simple steps (looks more complicated than it in reality is!):

Create a new, temporary local user account, name it as you wish like "Dummy" or such (tutorial)Change Dummy's account type to administrator (tutorial)Sign out from all other user accounts, sign in to DummyDisable all other user accounts except Dummy, the one you are currently signed in (tutorial). No worries, accounts and their data will remain intact, deactivating (disabling) them temporarily is done because sometimes Sysprep causes existing user accounts to lose Start and Search / Cortana functionality. When we are ready we will again activate (enable) all old user accountsWhen done, open an elevated Notepad (right click and select Run as Administrator) copy the following code and paste it to a new text document]:

working with vista homeprem sp2 32bit here. ran a quick avast scan a few minutes ago, it caught some small-time junk in the temporary internet files (which were purged easily enough), but it also pointed out C:\users\all users as "the system cannot find the path specified". so I open up windows explorer and try to go there. cue the "refers to a location that is unavailable" error message. now, I don't usually need to prod around in there so I'm not familiar with what normally happens, but I know vista loves to have a bunch of directories displayed that are shortcuts it uses for people who leave "hide protected OS files" checked (I don't, I want to see what's where) which really ought to not be shown when you're not hiding stuff but I digress, that's for MS to be groused at after win8 flops.

SO. should I panic that I've had another thing sneak past the security screens (mvp hosts file, spyware blaster, avast's shields, mbam scans)? nothing else seems out of sorts, but one man's paranoia is another man's preparation, and all.

Answer:C:\Users\All Users refers to a location that is unavailable *error message*

How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

All of my computers are wired... but, I would like to give my retired neighbor (he's 64 years old) wireless access. But, I don't want him or anyone else access to my shared files b/w desktop/laptop. So, should I put it on a different subnet? Do I need a 2nd router? Right now, I have the BEFSR41 with a WAP11 AP on 192.168.1.245 with the router on 192.168.1.1 (both are 255.255.255.0 subnet).

Thanks!
 

Answer:How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

I would setup a DMZ, you can do this by using two physical routers or something like smooth wall with multiple nics. If I were you I would setup smooth wall on a crap old box and install 3 network cards into the old computer. Hooking your cable modem to one of the network cards in the smoothwall box will be like pluggin in your cable modem to the wan port on the back of your router. I would plug your wireless router into to the next nic on your smooth wall box. If your neighbor is the only one using the wireless do the following. Enable WEP, don't broadcast your ssid, filter by mac address, and limit the total number of connections to 1. That should keep your wireless rather secure. With the final network card in the smooth wall box attach either a standard switch or even another router. Smooth wall has built in DHCP support and it will allow you to set a range of ips.Hard wire all your home computer to the switch and your in business.

What is the best way to share execution priviledges between limited users, power users, and administrators?

Say an application has already been installed by a higher priviledged user type, and a limited user cannot execute it - e.g. an ISP login software, or Spy Sweeper. Note: ISP login software lacks profile, so I suppose I could just create that, however, Spy Sweeper is a head scratcher.

Should the application be uninstalled and reinstall under All Users? How do you install an application to allow All Users to use it?

I have already tried to use the "Run As" right-click Properties w/Shift key approach and that does not work.

Is there an approach with regard to local security policy that would do what I want to do? How is that done? Or, is Access Control List the way to go?

Answer:Hiding Users' files from Guest Users

OK this appears to be a simple permissions issue.

go to your root folder on the D: drive and right click the folder and select properties.

on the security tab you should see a list of those who have access to the folder - Make sure that your user has full rights and remove all rights to the "everyone" user group. This when OK'd should xascade down to all files and folders contained in the folder

If you wish you can adjust the rights available to any other particular user on the system - Make sure that you do not remove or change any rights given to system or administrative users unless you fully understand the result

I posted this message in the W95/98/ME fourm, but this seems like the more appropriate place for the question:

I work for a company that has a small network consisting of one NT 4.0 Server box and around 40-60 client computers, mostly running W95 with a few running W98/2000/ME. Anyway, two managers here have W98 machines, and periodically after they have logged into the network and used different mapped network drives all of a sudden they can't access any mapped drives and they appear to be disconnected from the network (well, they are, as they can't do anything network related). The network is your basic ethernet using simple UTP cabling and hubs. The cabling appears to be plugged in properly, especially since they can log in and be connected to the network for a period of time. Rebooting solves the problem, but that isn't acceptable to my managers, so I have to figure out a way to get it so they don't get kicked off (besides just giving them W95). I have done a lot of research by myself on this, but I can't find any answers....if anyone has any ideas I'll be grateful, and will consider naming one of my future children after you.

What's up Qwerty.

In XP, you can choose to run a program as a different user. Right-click the shortcut, select Advanced, then check "Run with different credentials". When you execute the program, it will prompt which user to run it as. You may have to read up on how to make it not prompt for a password each time.

MSDN has an in-depth article on the subject.

I am cleaning a laptop out and i created a brand new user name. I deleted the other 2 users using the control passwords2.

So the machine starts and i select the user. Process usage is very high and it says 50, but actual user shows about 9. I click show processes from all users and i find the culprit as well as 50 processes. I deleted the users so there shouldnt be that option.

Why is there more processes if this is the only user, why does it even have the option?

Answer:Show processes from all users, with no other users

All users includes not only other users, if any but the System as well.

I am running W10 Pro x64 1511.

The laptop came with a default account for USER, so the underlying subfolders of Users are in users\USER\.
For various reasons I wanted to have them under my name i.e., users\FP\. So I added another admin user FP with which I login. However, no users\FP\ folder was created and the information is still stored in users\USER\.

Any idea why and how I could get the system to create the FP users folder and store the information there?

Thanks.

Answer:Consistency between users and Users folders

How did you add the second admin account?

I will if I have to manually delete them, although I'm not sure what other files may still be around on my drive that are located in Users/All Users that are redundant any recommended programs that I could depend on for this task ?

Answer:Users / All Users Redundant Folders

"All Users" is a junction to C:\ProgramData Delete nothing!

Question: Note to Self

Hi,

I made a note to myself yesterday to sort out my computer. At time it is tortue to operate this machine. Just the pauses and inconsistency of performance paticularly regarding internet surfing.

Is there any help with using Combofix?

I Think this may help, as my computer bleeps very regularly! I've been putting up with it for a long time.

The normal programs I use are

Super Anti Spyware
Malware Bytes Anti malware
AVG PC Tune Up - 2011
Uniblue - Speed up my PC - 2009
Spybot

Currently running Comodo Security Suite for Firewall, virus, and spyware protection.

Operating System - Windows XP
Service Pack 2
32 bit
1.67 GHz, 256MB RAM

Thanks

D

Answer:Note to Self

You are seriously under - memory. Only 256Mb means that there is a lot of swapping to the hard drive going on. I'd bet the hard drive activity light stay pretty much on.

I would suggest going to at least 1Gb of memory. If you can post the make and model I might be able to be of more help. If it is a no name brand then what make and model of motherboard please.

1.6Ghz can run OK with enough memory.

Also you should be running SP3. Once the memory is upgraded and it is running OK then that should be the next step.

Cheers
Roger

Question: One Note

I know OneNote 2k7 used to have a "Print To Onenote" plugin, and i cant for the life of me find this. I've been in need of pulling in PDF's to some of my notes and i cannot figure it out.

Also, how does Onenote react if i move the notebook directory? I want to move it to my dropbox folder (other stuff in dropbox so changing that is a no-go), so i have easy access to my notes on my desktop.
 

Answer:One Note

When you install OneNote there should also be a OneNote printer driver and you simply print to that. Also a notebook directory can be anywhere, just move the notebook directory to where you want and open it from within OneNote and it should become a tab on the left. In windows 7 I simply pin OneNote tee the tank bar for quick access.

Sorry if I'm in the wrong section. (mods please move if needed)

My mother wants to take notes (class she's taking) on her xps 12 using a stylus. She'll be using a capacitive stylus too, so support for that would be a must.

We'd prefer free too but willing to look into paid versions. Any recommendations that doesn't require "cloud" saves is also a must.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: or is it possible to use the stylus on word 2010? If so how do I go about it?

Answer:note pad app for xps 12?

You can try the EverNote.

Question: Note pad

Answer:Note pad

"WordPad is a simple notepad application that will allow you to write and print documents"
Could you just use that? It will let you insert photos and should come pre-installed on your computer.
