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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

Answer:Server 2012 R2 - Internet Explorer Proxy Server Issue

Hi Dicki,
First, please try to reset the Internet Explorer. Some plug-ins may affect the proxy.
If it doesn't work, please try to perform a network capture on the client.
Please check if the client send the http traffic to the proxy server at the correct port.
If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.
To download Network Monitor, please refer to the link below:

The following Structure is a representation;
SRV1 - IP - FQDN SRV1.DOM.LOCAL - File Share 'FLDR1' / USR1<ReadOnly>

SRV1 has a folder, FLDR1, being shared for read only access to user USR1.

PC1 and PC2 logged on as Domain User USR1.
PC1 is able to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
PC2 is unable to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
Now there are multiple means of connecting to SRV1 to see the share FLDR1.

The following connections were done in combination with the following methods;
Method 1 - via logged on Domain User CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 2 - via logged on Domain Administrator CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 3 - via logged on Domain User Explorer Window.

When attempting to browse with Internet Explorer, any URL I request (, gives an error page that says, "The proxy server isn't responding." The given proxy address is pointing at localhost. I am able to browse in Firefox, but I need Internet Explorer to work as well.
I cannot disable the "Use proxy server for your LAN" setting under Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN settings.

Not too long ago I got a copy of Server 2012 from one of the student programs at my university. I decided to use it as an opportunity to learn a bit more about Server as well as setup an HTPC. That probably wounldn't be the OS I would normally go with, but since I had it I gave it a shot. Everything went off without a hitch. I was able to utilize the storage spaces to combine about 8 TB worth of drives into a virtual disk.

My system ran like this for a while. I mounted that virtual disk to X: and so I had my C:and X: drives.....C: being utilized as a boot drive. It was partitioned and the rest of the space was being used in the 8tb storage space and mounted to X: This has been running for about 4 months without an issue. I was using this server as central storage for all the PCs in the house. This morning I was downloading files to it using Sabnzb and I noticed that Sab would pause. after reading some logs it showed that it got a CRC error. At first I thought Sab was talking about the files that I was downloading, but then I noticed other files also started to have the same issue. I determined that this was an issue with a storage device somewhere.

I rebooted my server and when it came back up some Windows updates were coming down the pipe. I let those finish and when I logged in and went to my computer, my C: and X: drive was listed but the X: drive showed no data. As if no drives were attached to it.

Answer:Server 2012 Storage Issue

Did you use a parity space, or just lump everything together in a big disk? If you used a big disk, you might have a drive that is going on the fritz. I'd make sure smart is on and use a tool to check each of the drives.

When you say virtual disk -- you're not saying that you created a big VHDx file across the disks and mounted it, right? You just created a storage space and mounted it as X:?

I'm trying to help a friend to get their Windows Server 2012 Essentials setup up in their small business.

Server is operational, but I'm having issues connecting PCs to it...

I'm able to get to the server page by going to http://(servername)\connect
I can download the connector software, when I run it it finds the server it ask for user name and password.

After entering info it tries to connect for 20-60 seconds and fails with:

Cannot coonect this computer to the network
The Server is not available. Try connecting this computer again, or for more information, see troubleshooting connecting computers to the server.

any idea what could be causing?

could this be caused by network issues? They are using ATT DSL for internet access, with a ATT model, that is referred to as ""

They also have a zyxel smart switch, it seems that both ATT DSL and Zyxel switch are acting as DHCP, and both might be issuing IP addresses.

Another thing I noticed that they are using IP phones for all office phones.
All PCs are connected to the network with an IP phone as a device in the middle, that seems be slowing down the phones from normal gigabit to 10/100 only.

Any help would be grateful.

Which other programs do these messages appear in,
Obviously this particular program relies on an Internet connection and accessing a database on the site which not many programs I know of do this ?

Or right click it and click on Run as administrator when you open it.

My Server, running 2012 R2 Standard, has to use Internet Explorer (Version 11 installed), to perform various browsing tasks on a regular basis. 
Both automated and manual browsing between URL's randomly stops working and displays nothing but a white page. The only way to fix it is to quit IE and reopen, which slows the process down massively. 
I have all addons disabled. I have tried resetting everything back to default. I have also disabled GPU rendering.
Any suggestions on what is going on? For reference, the exact same automation took place on Server 2008 R2 previously with no issues - I don't understand what could be the problem here but assume it is something Server 2012 related.

upgrade option.  We would have to reinstall and configure the OS again from scratch.
Is there anything we can do to resolve this problem?

I connected my computer up to an ethernet connection and it says that the internet connection is connected, but I cannot browse - internet explorer cannot find server and says that the page cannot be displayed. Firefox does not work either.

The connection works fine on other computers.

I contacted my ISP's technical help and worked through the basic troubleshooting - the computer can ping the modem, but not any webpages. They have suggested that something on the computer is blocking the connection.

I have uninstalled Avast and turned off the windows firewall to ensure they are not the problem - no change.

The computer has previously been infected by malware (av suite) which was blocking a previous USB connection, but this issue was solved. I am unable to use this previous connection now to see if that will work.

I have run Super AntiSpy and it came up with two malware.trace which I deleted - no change.

Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. In the Device Manager do you see any devices with yellow marks? If so, these are devices that need to have drivers installed. If you have a driver disc for your Netgear Adapter, install it (remove the adapter before running the driver, and plug it in when it says to) You can go to the Dell/Support/Download Drivers web site, type in your Make and Model # and it will take you to the download page for your particular machine.

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

Answer:Offline Folder sync issue, Win 7 Client Server 2003 Flie Server.

Here is my issue, my computer is functioning ok except for internet explorer. I am able to google and search things but when I try to enter a number of different sites (such as the malwarebytes download page) I receive a message that says "the proxy server isn't responding." "Check your proxy settings" When I go into internet options --> Connections----> Lan Settings, the "user proxy server for your lan" is checked and greyed out. I have run malwarebytes which did not fix the issue. Someone mentioned checking a proxy setting in regedit which was set to 1, when I change it to 0 as I was recommended, It did not fix the issue and simply reverted to 1. Im not sure if that is relevant at all but this issue is quite frustrating and any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I'm experimenting with implimenting this and am having a few issues.

When I install a print device and deploy with GPO, it works great.

When I update the driver on the server to a newer version using the 'new driver' button, I have issues. It prompts the user saying they need to install the driver. If you choose to install, it prompts for administrator credentials, which obviously negates the whole point of centralized management.

If I remove the printer from deployment, delete it and the driver, then add it again with an older version driver, and redeploy, the clients are still using the newer driver (sometimes I have reasons to roll back print drivers).

One thing I did notice is the driver is not listed as a package, where the default stuff by Microsoft is. I don't know if that makes a difference. If it is, how can I create the package? Do I have to use WDS or something similar?

So, what am I doing wrong when I'm changing the drivers that it won't automatically deploy the new driver without user intervention? Also, if there is no way to force the change, is there a way to force client stations to delete the old driver without getting into a bunch of scripting (I don't care for it).

On a brand new ASRock A75 Extreme6 with an AMD A4-3300 Llano APU, 4GB DDR3-1600 Corsair, 4x Seagate 2TB drives, and 3x Samsung 2TB drives, I am able to install Windows Home Server v1, WHS 2011, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows 7 without a hitch. Despite being an A4-3000, it's actually a pretty snappy processor, probably thanks to the Radeon HD6410 integrated GPU.

But when it comes to Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, the installation freezes at the first blue Windows logo screen. I use a thumb drive to install Windows - the very same thumb drive I used to install two other Windows 8 machines. I tried every USB ports in that computer with the same results, but I don't think it's the USB port because I install all of the other Windows operating system using USB as well (I didn't install a DVD drive in that media server).

I tried waiting for awhile in case it's just slow. When Windows 7 first came out, my game rig also took ages to install until a BIOS update fixed it, but still, that "ages" was just 60-70 minutes. The blue Windows 8/2012 logo sits there all night long and the light on the USB flash drive isn't blinking anymore, which indicates it's not being read.

Anyone have any idea what I might need to do to get the installation working? Tonight I'm going to check on the BIOS version and see if there's any new updates for it.

I could access the external internet with no problem on the server, then i ran the internet and exchange setup and gave it all the required setting now all i can access on any of my machines connected to the network is the internal sites, when i try and access any external sites it defaults back to the internal site.

Im running into issues with a Terminal Server I setup. We migrated from a Terminal Server running on Server 2003, to a new server running Server 2008. All of our applications are running just fine in the new 64 bit OS, however my users want to use Firefox on it, but we are having a lot of issues with it. Firefox installs fine, and you can browse web sites with it, but anytime you try to browse the filesystem on the server it freezes. If I try to just do a file open, once it brings up the filesystem the browser freezes. This is important, as we need to import SSL certificates into it for our users to be able to access certain resources. Has anyone seen this, or have any suggestions on how to fix it. I have tried to uninstall, reinstall different versions, they all seem to be doing it.

I'm having issues connecting to the internet with my desktop computer through my wireless router (my laptop works just fine). If I connect LAN directly to my modem the IE works jsut fine, but if I connect WAN or LAN to the router I can't seem to get to the internet. The connection shows that it is connected in the network connections area, however. I've gone through the settings on my laptop and they match what I have on my desktop, so I'm lost as to where to go next. Is this a DHCP server issue?

Oh and the most frustrating part, is that on a fresh reboot, you can log right on and IE will work for one or two pages, and then the error page comes up. It also seems to be runing IE more slowly than it used to. I've run spybot and my norton and both are clean to see if it was virus related, but I'm just an ametur so any suggestions are appreciated!


Answer:Internet connection issue (DHCP server?)

So are you saying that when your desktop computer is connected to the router via network cable, your IE won't work? And if you connect the computer directly to the modem, IE works?

Since you have a wireless router your laptop works fine which is good. Hmmm...........on the desktop computer I would try to un-install IE and re-install it again and see if that helps. Also perform a windows update on that desktop computer.

I would also try to perform a windows repair and see if that helps as well.

I've been having a problem for a while that has been quite annoying to me. I think it relates to XP service pack 2, but I'm not sure:

In Internet Explorer, under Tools>Internet Options>Security, there are two problems.
The first is that the security settings slider for internet refuses to change to anything below medium. It gives the error:
"The Recommended security level for this zone is 'Medium'. The level you have chosen is lower than this. Please choose a security level of of 'Medium' or higher."
This sounds like a security pack issue, as I noticed the problem right after installing it. But it still bothers me to not have the ability to override the default.

The second problem on the same window is the lack of a "Custom Level" button. The button is there, but grey and unclickable. This is relatively recent and corrosponds to my recent virus infection which I just got rid of.
This problem is much more aggrovating as it doesn't seem to be any type of spyware or virus, and it restricts browsing in many ways.

I have run McAfee and found no current viruses/worms/trojans. I also have run both of the latest editions/updates of SpyBot and Adaware.

Somehow these problems seem easy to fix, but, of course, I've been unable to find any solution. Any help would definitely be appreciated.

This was originally posted in the Server 2012 forum, but perhaps it's more applicable to Windows 7.


I've joined the Windows 7 Pro workstations to the Domain using the SERVER2012/Connect app and that seemed to work fine.  I made the Users all Standard, not Admin, and access to the Shared folders is working fine too.  Users appear to be in the
Administrators group on the local machine, which is what I need.
However, a number of our applications aren't working correctly ... one writes changes to HKey Current User and those changes will not stick.  Some IE sites that require changes have to be made each time; those changes don't save.  Some
of the ODBC connections to SQL databases are behaving strangly as well.  I tried checking permissions on the Windows Registry keys, and they looked OK.  Turning off User Access Control did not help either.
If I log on to the workstation not using the Domain Account I don't have this problem.  And, one of the workstations which had performed the Windows 10 Upgrade while connected to the previous Domain Controllder works fine.
Any direction would be greatly appreciated!   Thx DMiller

.. hoping I can get some help on this. Driving me nuts!

Since upgrading to Windows Server 2016, WOL doesn't work for me. I've ruled out network or router issues, since it works perfectly fine on my Windows 7 machine.

I have 3 NICs in a team, but that's irrelevant, since the WOL doesn't work even if I disabled the teaming. One thing I did notice is that when I shutdown my Windows 7 machine, the NICs remain lit. However, the NICs on my Windows Server 2016 completely turn off. I don't recall if that was the case when I was using 2012 on the same hardware, but it seems strange to me. If the NICs are completely off, I can't imagine there is a way for them to receive magic packets.

I checked the UEFI and all the necessary options are enabled for WOL. I also tried upgrading the NIC drivers on the server but that didn't help. I read that Windows 10 has a "fast startup" option that messes with WOL, so I disabled it in the Group Policy settings on the server, but that didn't work either.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be grateful for the help.

Hey there,

As often said...long time lurker. Recently installed a copy of WS2012 Datacenter I received to play with and learn more about. I have pretty much zero Windows Server background knowledge (I don't count WHS...which I have running as well).

So, my question...I created a Storage Pool, and then a couple Volumes, and then Shares.

My embarrassing noob do I access these Shares?

I can locate the server on my network, and know the IP address of it.

I created a User account so that I don't need to use the Admin account for general use.

My goal:

Not sure how to access it from a mac, but on a windows box you can just run \\%servername%\%sharename% and it'll launch it in an explorer window. Should be some sort of network browser on the mac to allow you to type in the unc.

So Im finally putting my big boy pants on and setting up a real home server. There are going to be 3 main uses for this server

1) Home server - Mainly for streaming to all my raspberry pi's and other windows devices but also as a network drive for my ssd only pcs

2) Remote server - Grabbing files away from home, remote vnc etc

3) Web server - Been working on a small personal website for a while now that I want to be able to host myself once it goes live. This isn't my main use for the server and if it isnt going to jive well with my primary uses I can always build a seperate pc for that use.

So if cost wasnt a concern between home server 2011 and server 2012 which would you choose based on my planned usage? I plan on using drive pool or drive bender with whatever I choose. So I would also appreciate some recommendations on which application you would choose with your choice of operating systems. Also, I can't seem to find definitive differences between the server 2012

When I do this across multiple servers specifically for Windows Servers 2008/2012, the counter is created to repeat and run everyday at 930PM and stops running everyday at 430PM. This works perfectly fine as intended. However, When I do this for a Windows

For example, in this case, I have set to the counters to start at 930AM and end at 1830PM, because I have set a maximum duration of 9 hours, the job terminates and begins on the next day, since I have the repeat option on. However, this does not apply to
our 2003 server; logman creates the job to run once a week in this case it would be on a Wednesday. In addiiton, I noticed that the job doesn't not even start at it's indented time. It actually does not start at all. I also notice that the jobs on all windows

Hello Guys,

Is there a way via scipting to force a pc to refresh their local printer
settings from the print server ? We have enabled Duplexing as the default for
printing ( conserve that paper ! ) for our HP Laserjet printers on the
Print Server, but if a user goes on their local printer settings and unchecks
duplexing, it will not re-pull that device setting from the print server
unless you delete and then re-add the printer on the local machine. Is there
a way to have the printer settings pulled from the server without have to
delete and then readd the locally installed network printer ?

Help - In the middle of surfing or looking at anything on Internet Explorer 6, it jumps to "CANNOT FIND SERVER" or "CANNOT DISPLAY PAGE" in the middle of what ever I was doing. Using the back button brings me back to where I was so I can continue. I get an error code but I can't seem to find out what that means.

This is driving me crazy as I am constantly using the back button to get to use IE .


( using Norton Antivirus - no firewall and SPYWARE software)

Answer:Explorer jumps to Cannot Find Server

my com used to do that and it was because of my connection

I recently downloaded IE8 in hopes that it would fix a Yahoo mail freezing issue. It did fix that issue but now i have another. When going onto certain sites (such as my banking site) I get a message that says "Internet explorer has stopped working" It will then loop back to that site and keep trying.
I would also like to know why I can't open attachments in Yahoo mail. I couldn't with IE7 and still cant with IE8. It runs through all the steps and looks like it's going to open...but it never does.

I'm running Vista Home Premium btw.

Thanks for any help!!

Update: Ok...I've found out a few more things that may help. I removed my Norton 360 from start up and rebooted. So I had no antivirus at then ran perfectly fine. It opened everything and nothing froze. I of course thought it was a norton issue so I downloaded it does the exact same thing with Avira running. I can't open attachments and IE freezes and Google Chrome freezes. If I try to open my antivirus after the freezes too.
Please help..thanks.

Answer:Internet Explorer 8 issue and Yahoo issue

Hi Chronos2k I'm having a problem similar to yours. I run McAfee Security. I think it's the antivirus software. It started several days after installing IE 8. McAfee started giving me security setting warnings and won't allow downloads or even open up some web pages properly. I'm going to look around some more and probably will do what Red Dawn is suggesting.I found this quote on an earlier post by Red Dawn.? I would strongly recommend [Temporarily] disabling your anti-virus application and any anti-spyware application's "system protections" (other than Defender's) before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade. If you're running a third-party firewall, I would recommend [Temporarily] disabling it and then [Temporarily] enabling the Windows Firewall before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade.? Create a Restore Point manually before installing IE8.? Reboot twice after installing or uninstalling IE8. luck,Olywane

Anyway, we’ve been getting more calls than normal about this lately, and that led us to take a closer look at what was going on. What we found is that there’s a problem that can manifest when you have Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2012 R2 domain controllers serving the same domain.Click to expand...

I am working with windows 8 and I have installed SQL server 2007 and visual studio 2010. Now I want to upgrade these setups to SQL server 2012 and visual studio 2012. what is the advantages of what i want to do and how can i do it easily without corrupting the operating system? Please help.

Answer:Installation of sql server 2012 and visual studio 2012

SQL Server has an upgrade option that is pretty painless. Just run the setup file from your 2012 installation media and click the upgrade option. It will ask you what instance to upgrade, run some checks, and then upgrade it for you.

Visual Studio is a little different. If you install 2012 without uninstalling 2010 first, you will simply just have both versions to choose from. You can completely uninstall 2010 before installing 2012 by finding your 2010 installation file and adding the uninstall and force switches when running it(ex. "C:\vs_ultimate.exe /uninstall /force").

If you keep 2010, 2012 will ask you if you wish to import your settings and whatnot from 2010. If you uninstall 2010, 2012 will just have it all when you open it for the first time.

My school gives us server 2012 standard for free. I am wondering if it's possible to install it as 2012 essentials with the same features as essentials kind of like how win pro had every thing home had. Or are the features of server essentials not included in standard? (Features like full pc back up and the dashboard like whs 2011)

Answer:can you setup server 2012 standard as 2012 essentials?

Different media for the install, Server Standard and Datacenter use the same media. Essentials has it's own install disk and Foundation and Storage Server share the same media.

Question: Web Server Issue

I have a demo web server, which is where all of our test changes are made to our real web site. Our programmers and other various web folk ftp the changes to the site (which is just an IP address we don't have a DNS record associated with it). Our web people are in the US, India and Korea and are all having the following problem. They cannot FTP or HTTP to the ip address of the web site, unless they ping it first, if they ping it then they can suddenly get a response from the site and can access it for a period of time. The Demo machine is not behind a firewall of any kind, its just sitting out there. It has no problem seeing the rest of the world. Its running win2k, I might add. This problem just started happening a few weeks ago... I have reinstalled tcp-ip, made sure that the card is not going to sleep, which wasn't the case anyhow.. its like each individual machine has to handshake with it before it will respond to http and ftp, and then after a period of inactivity from that machine it can't access it again without resending the icmp.. oh traceroute also seems to work to wake it up. I can attempt to access the web site, have it not work, ping it, have it work and the guy on the same hub/switch two feet from me has to go through the same process, as do the people in india and korea as well as other varios friends I've had try it. I'm sorry if I'm repeating or over simplyfing my explanation but I want to give full details on the problem... any... Read more

Question: FTP Server issue

i'm having an issue setting up an ftp server that i can't figure out. i can only connect to it if my client is set to port 20? anyways.. here are screenshots.. maybe someone can figure this out.

Here is my port forwarding. as you can see.. my port 21 is forwarded on the router to my computer IP of

my port range is forwarded from 2000-2010 to take care of the PASV connections.

my FTP Server is set to port 21.. same as everything else

my CLIENT is set to port 21 also.. and i get "Connection Refused"
however, as soon as i change the CLIENT'S port to 20... everything works. Why doesn't it work on port 21? i'm on XP with SP2 and all firewalls turned off. as well as security settings off.

Question: Server issue

Here is an issue for all the network geeks. i will describe the issue and not post any steps i have taken to resolve it as i need a fresh set of eyes on the issue. i manage a system with 14 servers, of which 2 are the domain controlors, 1 is the mail server, 3 are VM's, etc. there is one server that is for use of only agency that has 6 users. it is there file server, datbase server only. all the logins are handled on the 2 domain controlers. it is windows server 2003 all updates and an antivirus program that is used on all systems on the campus.
here is the the issue. at numerous tmes though out the day it goes "offline" it does not turn off or reboot. all that happens is the users lose touch with it for a varying amount of time and then reconnect to it.:confused
all servers have a static ip and are on the proper subnet.


Answer:Server issue

What database services is it running? Do users actually lose connectivity? Or, do they lose response from the database application?

Question: DNS Server Issue

I have two DNS Servers Windows 2003
They are external facing, resolve domains (URLs) for the public.
When I use A Records everything works fine, except if I manually Reload From Master
But when I use CNames records the secondary dns zone (on the second server) will not reload automatically
If I right click on the zone and choose reload it loads the zone until it expires.

If I choose Reload From Master it will fail and locks the zone.

I manage 800 domains and it is easier admin if I can use cnames.

If anyone can help thanks.
