windows Vista "Unidentified Network" and"Local access only"

Question: windows Vista "Unidentified Network" and"Local access only"

I am being driven crazy, PLLLLEEESSSEE Help. My laptop, running Windows vista Basic, shows that it is connected to the internet with Excellent signal strength both wireless and ethernet. However it says "Unidentified Network" and "Access: Local Only" and is not really connected to the internet. My Tower computer (on Windows XP) is connected, that is what I am using now. My MAC IPad is connected fine. I recently changed my Router to TP-LINK through my local provider (Don't want to call him out to fix it as it will cost me an automatic 50 Euros). I live in Spain. I have tried all sorts eg disabling IvP6 etc but no internet. Can anyone out there please help me.
Thanks, Jim

Preferred Solution: windows Vista "Unidentified Network" and"Local access only"

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.)

Answer: windows Vista "Unidentified Network" and"Local access only"

Are you using a VPN program? That sometimes makes the pc say local only. Can you open websites in IE or connect to the xp computer by tiping \computername in the adress bar. If you can don't worry. If not in routers web interface disable MAC address filtering.

Hello,

I have an Asus Netbook 1005P, running Windows 7, SP1, with Internet Explorer 11.

I am often but not always, experiencing the following issue:

When I attempt to connect to Wifi at a caf, the "Wireless Network Connection" for the Network shows "Connected", yet there is no Internet access. Placing the pointer over the Connection icon in the Notification Area displays:

"Unidentified Network No Internet Access".
(The network in question always has an SSID shown in the Wireless Network Connection list.)

This issue occurs whether I am running only the Windows firewall, or am only running the firewall that I prefer which is Comodo.

For antivirus I have Avast Pro (with its "web shield" currently disabled) and so far as this issue is concerned it makes no difference whether this Avast component is enabled or disabled, or whether I disable all Avast Shields.

When this issue occurs, there are often other customers in the caf connected to the caf wifi and also using the Internet.

I have to ask the caf to reset, or turn off and then turn back on, their router, yet other customers do not have to do this to get Internet connection!

This is the issue at whatever caf, to whose Wifi I attempt to connect.

Please help with a solution to this issue.

Regards,

Robert339

Hi all, this originally started with an issue with the wireless. I recently installed a D-Link DIR-515 wireless router and did a basic setup, giving it WPA2 security. My Vista computer originally was able to connect to the router with Internet (and before that, to the modem directly with Ethernet), but it was infected by the Vista Security 2012 virus, which I removed after following some steps and MBAM. Since then, it can no longer connect to the wireless network, so I Googled the issue, and did a few things:
- Norton Remover,
- In command prompt, ipconfig and netsh + .... (some commands that reset/refreshed IP/DNS or something along those lines)
- Going to wireless settings and disabling ipV6
- Going to wireless setting and manually giving it an IP, Default Gateway, DNS (according to the specs that I found by using ipconfig on my working Windows 7 laptop)
- Updating the Atheros driver to version 9.1

Somewhere along the way, I must've nipped something important somewhere, because now the Vista machine doesn't connect to the internet wirelessly NOR with the Ethernet cable attached! The icon in the lower right hand corner shows that the machine sees the router, but with Local Access only.

I've done an ipconfig /all with the machine and here are the results (this is with ethernet attached):

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

My girlfriend's laptop (HP pavilion entertainment) only recently had these problems.

-When shutting down, it stalls on the shutdown screen where it says "Shutting Down...", and the spinner keeps spinning.

-Both her LAN and wireless connections suddenly only have "local only" access. I've tried restarting CMOS/BIOS (not sure) by holding down the power button for 30 secs and reinstalled the network adapter drivers but both to no avail. I have also read about many other people with vista having this problem, but nobody had a definite solution.
Thanks ALOT for any help =)

I just moved to Peru for my study abroad. When I first connected to the wi-fi in my homestay I was successful. Suddenly, I cannot get internet access and it says it is an "unidentified network". I have tried manually inputting IP addresses, DNS, etc. I have tried forgetting the network and disabling my virus protection. I can't even get internet when I plug an ethernet cable into my computer, directly into the router. My laptop is the only thing that isn't working, other people's computers work and my iPod and smart phone work with the network. I have a Lenovo Win7 PC, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Answer:Cannot get internet access on wireless nor local area, "unidentified"

Hello barooke Welcome to the Seven Forums!

The place to be is in the Control Panel>Network & Sharing Center. Note the image here.

Once you click on the link you will find the troubleshooting options for internet connection at the top as well as for network adapters. If you select the network adapters option select the "all adapters" option as well as the advanced which will see the automatically fix errors box already checked off.

You should be seeing a large red X right inbetween the network name on your laptop like unknown and internet when first opened. If the first attempt using the network adapters option works that will become a solid line as seen in the image there.. Clicking on the red X itself is the same as selecting the internet connections options which also sees the automatically fix errors box checked off under Advanced.

G'day all,

I am hoping someone may be able to tell me why my local folders appear under "The Internet" on one of our work computers rather than under "Local Network". We have four machines, 3 running XP Home and one running XP Pro. The front machine has XP Home on it and I cannot open any of the shared folders for this machine on any of the other three machines even though they all have the same workgroup name.

They are all connected via CAT5 cable and we have a Netcomm NB5 ADSL2 modem/router, a Netcomm V300 Telephone Adapter(VOIP)/modem and an 8 port switch in the boss's office. And the front computer's folder/s and drives that I have chosen to be shared are listed under "The Internet". Does anyone know why this is and how I would go about correcting it?

Thankyou for your help and time,

Aaron

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

Why is my Workgroup (WHARFSIDENET) local network identified on my Win7Pro PC as an "Unidentified (Public) Network"? Is this a Windows 7 bug?

From the "Network and Sharing Center", clicking on the "Park Bench" opens to the "Network Properties". Here, by default the network name (Unidentified Network) is automatically selected, but cannot be changed. Also, the network Icon can't be changed.

This local ethernet network is used for File Sharing and Remote Desktop Connections and works just fine. We use static IP addresses for our local network with no DNS server.

Answer:How do I Rename an "Unidentified" Local Network

Press the windows key and the pause/break key. Then on the left click Advanced system settings. In the box that opens go to the Computer Name tab. Then try clicking the Change button to change your Workgroup name.

I have been playing the game for a few weeks now in my spare time on my Windows 10 desktop and have acquired some bonus packs, a dozen vehicles, upgrades, unlocked 5 seasons, and moved my user rank up to 4824 in the multiplayer ranks amongst various other things. I do not want to lose my progress but for the first time i wanted to upload a ghost the other day and seen that (it seems) I will lose all progress if I log into Facebook now. Also, I noticed that my "local account" doesn't transfer my save data when I log into the game on my Windows 10 laptop (which is super inconvenient because I am rarely home). I seen topics posted that a Facebook sync fixes this but I am afraid I will lose all my progress.
Anyone have any experience with this?

Answer:On Windows 10: "Asphalt 8 Airborne" can I sync my "local account" with my "Facebook Account?"

I am with you on this. I'm having the same problem, and the Customer Care form at Gameloft is not set-up yet for inquiries on desktop platforms. Also, search engines are hard to trigger relative informaiton on the subject. I have no intention of changing over to my Facebook "version" if the progress isn't going to be transferred.
It's just a new problem brought around to headline the Windows 10 updates. I'm sure there will be a wait time, but there has got to be a flood of new Win10 users that are firing up their CC services for a fix.
If I find out that it fixable, I'll get back to this thread.

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Thanks

ive been searching here all night and on other forums and have tried just about everything. so here goes. all was working perfectly fine yesterday. i brought my netbook to work as usual to connect to our unsecured wifi network....never an issue. i started getting "limited access" and "unidentified network" messages. apparently, after a brief search of the internet, its a common and troublesome thing. i tried EVERYTHING i could find on google and other forums about it.

Hardware: Acer Aspire One D260 netbook, Atheros WLAN with up-to-date driver.

What i have tried with NO success:
1.) disable / re-enable the wireless card
2.) update, rollback the driver for it
3.) confirm the properties for the IPv4 and IPv6 were set to auto detect
4.) ran winipconfig, reset winsock, release and renew IP.....etc. all of the command line functions i could find
5.) system restore to 5 days ago

when i get all of my ip info for the computer, it is showing the ip for the wireless adapter is 169.254.xx.xx which from my reading is an erroneous address. when connected to the same network via iphone, it shows a proper 192.169.2xx.xx ip address.

ive tried everything and cant get it to work. i CANT reset the router since i dont have access to it. but then again, since my iphone connects to it properly, so should the computer. i will try to connect to my home network shortly when i get home. any other ideas short of reinstalling windows and WHY does this happen???

Answer:Yet another "unidentified network / limited access" thread....help!!

Hmm.. can you try inputting the the IPV4 address in the properties of your wireless card manually?

I find that this forcing of manual IP settings often helps alleviate this unidentified network issue that happens occasionally on some networks i connect to..

For example:-

In your IP Version 4 Properties box:-

Set the IP to 192.168.2xx.xx (fill up the xxx with the same numbers as your network, e.g if your gateway is 192.168.220.2, you IP should be 192.168.220.27, 27 being the manual allocation)

Set the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0

and lastly set the default gateway to 192.169.2xx.xx (Fill up the xxx with your network gateway numbers)

If you want you can also set the Preferred DNS server address to that of your gateway

Try the above and see how it goes..

Hope that helps...

EDIT: I forgot to read the part that mentioned you're on a network at work which means you may need to get the Default Gateway and DNS addresses from your IT guy. Also they may not allow manual IP allocations beyond that which have been allocated by the DHCP.. So.. YMMV..

Also, i believe you can also acquire the required numbers from your iPhone's IP address display i think...

Answer:Can't access "Network and Sharing Center" nor "User Accounts"

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,

I have spent hours and hours trying to figure this out, but no luck yet. I am in a desperate need of help.

Main problem: Wireless internet connection "Unidentified network/ No Internet Access" on my new desktop PC in the LIVINGROOM. But strange thing is, when I bring this same PC to MY ROOM (where the modem is located) it works perfectly (wired and wireless both). My wifi also have been working just fine on my 2 laptops, iPad, and android phone.

I just bought this Gateway DESKTOP PC couple days ago on newegg:
-Part Number: SX2370-UR10P
-BIOS P01-A3
-Windows 7 Premium 64 Bit
-AMD A8 3820
-Integrated LAN 10/100/1000
-Wireless LAN (802.11n Wireless LAN Card)

In the livingroom it says "Unidentified Network, No Internet Access" but right below this it says "Connected" next to my SSID. Yea, this is freaking weird.

I have already tried:
- Wireless Network Connection Properties: TCP/IPv6 and TCP/IPv4 --> installed both & set to obtain address automatically
- Uninstalled Norton completely and restarted (with Norton remover)
- Updated windows and reboot
- Tried updating driver but windows tells me it is up to date.
- I called Gateway and they even told me to REFORMAT Windows to factory settings. Still did not work.

Again, it really boggles my mind that wifi works in my room ON THIS SAME PC without any problems.

Please help me. Thank you so much in advance.

Hello there!

I'm sorry this has been posted numerous times before, but I've read through everything, but haven't yet found a fix. The problem is I get the "Unidentified network" message when I try to connect to the internet via LAN. I just built a new PC, and started getting this error. I've never used LAN before, and the same issue occurs when I try it on my laptop. Wi-Fi works fine, though.

I've tried the following:
* Uninstalling, reinstalling network adapter driver
* "netsh winsock reset", "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt", "ipconfig /flushdns"
* Reverting machine settings to before the first Windows update
* Disabling IPv6
* Changing LAN cable
* Connecting to another PC
* Changing "Speed and duplex" settings
* Turning off firewall (no anti-virus installed)
* Reseting and restarting router, as well as trying other ports
Edit:
* Reseting DHCP and DNS client (both set at automatic startup)

Answer:"Unidentified network" - No internet access (LAN)

the subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway is not present, what is your router brand, are you using a range extender? Try changing Workstation on the system page to something personal on all your machines, then setup the network connection from the main page of Network and Sharing, setup new connection or network. Your router address should be the default gateway and can be set in the advanced button of the ipv4 properties page, something like 192.168.0.1

Hello all

We just recently upgraded the router and modem for our home internet. I can connect to the internet through other devices (work computer, etc.), but am unable to connect through my 7 year old Compaq Presario CQ50. Currently, it is connecting to the "unidentified network", but won't connect to the internet. So far, I've:

1. Unplugged the modem and power cord for a few minutes, then plugged back in.
2. Uninstalled the network adapters (Atheros AR5007 and Realtek RTL8102E) and restarted the computer. Additionally, I tried updating the device drivers but it says they're up to date
3. Disabled IPv6
4. Modified the routing table using "route delete 0.0.0.0"
5. Ran "ipconfig/renew"

None off these have worked unfortunately. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

P.S. I'm wondering if it could possibly be an outdated network card maybe?

Hi
I have recently updated to the creator version
My files end up in unintended destinations. When I click in the documents tab in the sidebar of the documents screen, it takes me to a ?Documents? folder that appears in ?One Drive? group. Any files that I send from my desktop end up there
Those files are also shown when I open the first ?Documents? folder that appears in the ?Quick Access? group. I have similar problems with ?Pictures? folders
I have attached screen shots that I hope will explain. I want all my files of any description to end up in the ?Documents? folder contained in the ?This PC? group. Can anyone help please?
Incidentally, I don?t understand the purpose of ?One Drive?, and don?t believe that I will have a use for it. Can I remove/disable it?

I tried to associate the file extension .txt to a new editor program
with the well known cmdline programs ASSOC and FTYPE.

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

ftype txtfile=D:\notepad++\notepad++.exe "%%1"

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: txtfile"

Why?

Hey, I am really hoping someone can help me solve this problem, it's driving me up the wall!
When I started using my computer this morning everything was fine, and then "no network access" kept appearing, along with "limited connection/connectivity". I would troubleshoot the problem, but then at the end of the troubleshoot it would freeze, and my screen went black, so I had to turn my computer off and then on again. This problem has persisted throughout the day, I've googled it but nothing really the same as this has turned up .. if someone could please please help me, I'd really appreciate it!

If its a wired connection - I suggest you to try using a different ethernet cable and check,
If its a wireless connection - Try to get to the router as close as possible and check,

Please specify the type of connection, model of the router, OS and the wireless card your using and reply back

Hi all,

So I'm kind of stuck.. I currently have the problem where I am in an endless cycle of "loading files" -> "Windows Boot Manager" (see: How To Boot Into Safe Mode On Windows 8 (The Easy Way)).
I have tried to load all of the options -- and none successfully load.
I also end up at a OneKey Recovery as well.. unfortunately, the laptop does not have initial backup or user backup images.
I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:
Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] -- does not load properly (leads to OneKey Recovery) Safe Mode (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Networking (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Command Prompt (doesn't load - tries to boot and load all files onto partition that is too small.. can't change partition?)

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

go into the properties for the local area connection, scroll down to the ipv4, highlight and select properties. Set it to auto obtain an ip address, this will enable the dhcp server settings for the Ethernet connection.

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

Lenovo support suggests to do factory rest but i dont want to go back to windows 8

Does anyone else has any other idea on how to fix this issue ?
Thank you very much

Answer:Windows 8.1 Wifi showing "limited" or "No Internet Access"

Try rebooting the router & modem. Usually limited connection, means that the compute has failed to communicate properly with the Wireless Access Point, or wired router connection.

I get the "Ethernet 2" Doesn't have a valid IP configuration" message whenever I attempt troubleshoot the ethernet.

My set up...

Alienware Aurora R4 computer. I have a 1gb USB/ethernet converter with an ethernet system connected to an "AV200 Powerline Adapter with Wireless N300and passthrough sockets - triple kit" setup. When I was on Windows 8, I just plugged the powerline set up at their respective places, connected to the Virgin Media 100mb speed wireless/ethernet Hub and it worked perfectly with no complicated setup (took less than 10 minutes to do). I know a wi-fi adapter would be a short term fix but unfortunately Wi-fi is near impossible because of where my studio computer is based (my computer studio room is in a converted shed at the very back of my garden and geographically to far to get any reliable wi-fi signal... hence the need to purchase a mains powerline system).

I delayed updating Windows 8 until today. After this update I am now completely without internet. I can't understand what the problem is, I am unable to perform a system restore for some reason. It cannot be a router problem because my mobile phone works as does other devices in the house, just not the computer. I knew it worked perfectly before this update so it has to do with the update somehow. I am getting "unidentified network" and "limited" connection.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Okay... I'm on my last bit of patience here because I just can not figure out WTF happened here.

Last night, when playing WoW, I was disconnected 8 times. I decided to restart my connection. I turn off the modem and router.. leave them unplugged for a bit.. then plug them back in.. and boom. Can't get internet working on any computer on my network (My Vista64 machine, my XP32 machine and my fathers Vista32 machine). No wireless devices, everything is connected by ethernet cables.

All I get is that "Local Only" or "Limited" stuff.. which is useless, of course.. However..

When I plug the ethernet cable directly from my modem to the computer, the internet works. So I'm guessing the problem is with the router? I have a Dlink DIR-655 router.

Any help would be greatly appreciated... as my father and I are fighting over the single ethernet/internet cable that works right now I don't know what else to do. Tried resetting the network adapter.. tried even going to a restore point to see if it was a windows update or something that messed it up, but no. My computer specs are in my sig (Both computers). Also, I don't think it helps but it can't hurt to mention I have cable internet.

Please please let me know if you have any ideas I should try right now
 

Answer:"Local Access" Annoyance, no network..

Definitely sounds like your router. Make sure when you power cycle things you turn on the modem first, let it sync up, then power up the router. The order can make a big difference. Check your router diags to make sure it's getting an IP from the modem. You can also try doing a factory reset on the router (make sure you resecure your wireless) and/or check for newer firmware.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

You should first try resetting the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, still holding down the button, unplug the router for 30 seconds, power back up while still holding down the button for 30 more seconds.

After that it's required that you go into the routers settings and make sure the wireless is set up correctly, you need to add SSID "name of network" set up a password to connect, then choose the security and encryption, WPA2 and AES encryption tends to work best with Windows 7 drivers.

After that check your wireless profile for this connection by going to the Network and Sharing center, look left for "Manage wireless connections" and use the same settings that you used for the router.

If you are still having problems please post the ipconfig/all from this machine and I'll have a look at it.

Hi everybody... I got a problem from hell.... I purchased a laptop recently with Windows7 Home Premium. I discovered that the New Express slot did not allow for my previous laptops PCMCIA wireless modem to be fitted... no matter I bravely connected the two laptops using the old laptop running Windows XP Prof SP2 with a crossover cable and then setup the Internet sharing connection and stumbled across a working link to the Internet with my newer laptop... Happy days for a while, then with upgrades of Virus software and Windows updates being run on the newer laptop a mother of all problems broke the unthinkable "Unidentified network"... So off to SevensForum and to the rescue... or not... Discovered "Set Registry Editor" to "Public", "Private" or "Default not configured" .... so now I able to set the Home network or set Public network as I like, but the network remains unidentified and the link to the Internet connection has the little red cross the the globe icon is a bleak Grey color. This is too much for the troubleshooting, not able to identify as details reveal "No issues detected" I don't know what to say, please someone help, "Brink" got me this far...

This seems to be a widespread problem and it is really driving me totally nuts.

I have a brand new PC, together with a faithful wireless router, and to cut a long story short ended up with a successful internet connection for a couple of weeks via my usb wireless network adaptor. Then a week ago, for reasons unclear (but hopefully irrelevant given subsequent system recovery), the internet connection stopped and reverted to local access only.

Initially resetting the router worked but not for long.

Then I tried various system restores and netsh commands to rebuild the tcp stack and repair winsock (if they were ever corrupted). Finally I tried the DhcpConnDisableBcastFlagToggle registry entry and that seemed to work, but again not for long.

Since then nothing at all has managed to get away from just local access.

The wireless signal is very strong.

I have restored the vista image from the recovery disk and installed only the precise driver that worked during the period of successful internet connectivity.

I have disabled IPv6, added the registry entry above, all to no avail.

I can access my wireless router itself via my vista machine, and can ping my xp laptop (which is connected just fine). My iphone connects, my friend's xp laptop connects and another friend's mac book connects.

The only thing that doesn't connect is this vista pc and the only thing that is on is vista 64 fresh from recovery and the driver from October 2008 that worked before.

From a clean restore of the vista image I tried these steps from another discussion forum:

4) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\DisabledComponents 255 (hex)
5) Start -> Run -> services.msc -> Disable "IP Helper"

Didn't fix my issue, but the current state of play is that not only can I connect via IE to my wireless router, I can ping my laptop by name, and I can ping google.co.uk using it's ip address rather than the name.

Sorry for replying to such an old thread but I am having a problem like this.

I wonder if this problem has been fixed by a windows update but the pc I am working with has a clean install of vista home premium with sp1 and sp2 installed.

As with the problem in the op here the laptop connects to the router but displays the status local access only.

The laptop is an Acer 5310 and the router is a netgear dg834g

I have narrowed this down to being something to do with the encryption type as with encryption disabled the connection works perfectly.

If I try to configure WEP I get a message saying wps will not work if I use this.

Other methods like WPA and WPA2 claim to connect but have the 'local access only' message when the pointer is hovered over the connection icon.

Any help greatly appreciated as this is a time consuming problem but I am more curious to know how it was resolved as none of the numerous suggestions I have tried have worked.

Thanks.

A little background: this is my neighbor's wifi; he kindly allows me to use it. Recently he installed a new router & Comcast account. Using his password, my wife's Mac can see and use his network just fine. I can't. Status lists connectivity as "local."

FYI, I'm running Vista Home Premium 32 on a Toshiba satellite.

I've tried a number of fixes gleaned from other forums: resetting my adaptor, disabling IPv6 in several places (i.e. in connection properties and in the device manager); etc. Many offer various recipes for digging into the registries to do this or that, but I'm leery unless I know for sure that that's the right thing to do.

Any suggestions?

Answer:Vista "Local Only" access problem

Hi,

Sorry but unfortunately as I am/ we are unable to assist you in this matter as we cannot verify your statement on the "Use of your neighbor's wifi".

Again, sorry about that.

I have a newly built computer that I assembled last night and the wireless is not working. When I try to connect, it says "connecting to the network is taking longer than usual" and then after awhile it says "connection unsuccessful"... then I hover over the network icon in the taskbar and it says "unidentified network: local access only"

I cannot open web pages. I have filtered through many pages of google results on this problem and nothing i saw fixed it.

More details:
windows vista ultimate 64bit sp1
brand new linksys wireless-g pci adapter with latest drivers
linksys wireless-g DSL router
wireless network does not have any kind of encryption
(no WEP, etc.)
DHCP enabled

two other computers in the house work just fine with the wireless.... one with xp home 32bit, and the other with vista home premium 32bit

Answer:vista wireless "local access only"

Hmm, this is curious, normally i get this problem in school (with WPA-Enterprise encryption) but never with no encryption...

Does your router have a firewall in it's firmware?
(could be blocking IPs or MAC adresses)

Can you ping/view the router?

Cheers,
Jamey

New to the forum, hoping to find answers or new ideas to try...
My Win7 OS computer has problems seeing my WD network drives most of the time. I'll say up front that my Macbook, my Windows XP laptops, all other computers of various types in my house see and access these drives just fine, but the one with Windows 7 Pro will not. It occasionally will see and access them for short periods of random time though, which really has me baffled. These drives are right on the same network switch as the Win7 computer.

The scenario goes like this:click on the drive name to view contents... 20 or so seconds pass, popup says "Windows cannot access \\drive-name".
I try the second NAS drive, same thing.
I try the "diagnose" feature to no avail. I've even explored some of the "explore additional options" suggestions to no avail.
I can ping the IP addresses of both these drives all day long and they respond without fail.
Weird thing is that very occasionally I will click the drive and the file folders show up and I can transfer files, or whatever I want, for a short random period of time.
I swear, this problem is driving me crazy! I've been resorting to using a flash drive to transfer files on this computer's HD to the WD network drives via an XP OS computer, or via the Macbook. I like Windows 7 other than this very frustrating problem.
Soooo... any ideas or suggestions? Anyone else have this issue and figured it out??
TIA for any and all comment... Read more

Answer:"Windows Cannot Access" my WD "My Book Live" NAS drives

have you tried to access it via the IP address rather than hostname? It may be DNS causing an issue

For example in the Windows Explorer navigation bar type the following

Hello everyone,I've been having a problem since I updated to Windows 8.1My internet wi-fi connection is unusually low and is not working after only minutes of browsing the internet. The problem is always fixed after I run troubleshoot problems and is saying that the default Gateway is unavailable. My netword card might be the source of the problem even tough I updated the drivers. I'm not sure which one I have because drivers from Ralink and Qualcomm seem to be working both so :/Please help ^^

I have gone through nearly every single thread made by someone with the same problem, but everything I have tried has ended up unsuccessful. I am at the end of my rope with this problem, and it needs to be corrected now. I'm a senior in high school and using my mother's Asus eee PC (model number 1001PXD) for classes. Since this netbook does not have access to the school's networks, I am using the multiple "Guest" access points. For some reason, I am able to connect in some areas with little to no trouble out of the "Unidentified Network" problem during certain times of the day, and others I can't connect at all (ironically, this usually happens when I REALLY need to access the internet for online courses). I am not at all far from any of the access points, and the signal is excellent when I DO manage to log on.

The same netbook logs on to the networks in mine and my grandmother's homes no problem. It only has an issue with the school's "Guest" network.

I don't know if this is significant or not, but I find it rather curious that my Nintendo 3DS cannot connect to the "Guest" network at all.

I will include a screenshot of my "IPCONFIG /all" settings, and I will post more if needed. Please, any suggestions are helpful... My graduation is at stake here... I really need your help.

I do have my WiFi internet working, I can access internet all right. But if I go to Windows 10 Settings and then try to open "Network & Internet", it takes forever and it does not load. While that happens, performance temporarily decreases, even Synaptics touch pad has some freezes/jumps. Eventually performance gets back to normal, but "Network & Internet" is still unopened.

Also, if I click on the WiFi icon on Windows 10 Notification Area at Taskbar (at the bottom right of the screen), it does not pop-up, or it pops-up with an empty list of available connections (instead of a list that would have a dozen connections, including my own). Just to click on such icon triggers a Taskbar freeze. So, after that, I can't make Start button to work, I can't use the search field, I can't make any Taskbar icons to pop-up. My only way out is to open Task Manager, finish "Windows Explorer", go to File then create a new task with "Explorer.exe". Then Taskbar is good again, but I can't touch its WiFi symbol on Notification Area, or else Taskbar will freezes.

Reboot is not doing any good. My Windows 10, unfortunately, seems to remember all the bad stuff that happened on the previous session

Answer:Cannot open "Network & Internet" from Windows 10 "Settings"

First, reset your wifi access point.
second, make sure the driver for your wifi networking in the PC is updated.
You can choose to uninstall and restart the PC to make sure the latest driver is used.

If the connection is not stable, Windows 10 (which is sharing an enormous amount of information via Internet might not respond normally because it's waiting for replies that stuff has been received.

Hello, all!

[Is this the right forum? I figured the "Security" in "Networking and Security" made it so this would apply here... However, not sure if it just applies to security specifically having to do with networking. If it needs moved, feel free to do so.]

I have been messing around with setting up Software Restriction Policies this evening (no AD currently (that will come later), just a bunch of computers in a workgroup), and I have run into a problem...

Here is what I have: Under enforcement, I have "All users except local administrators" selected, and for the default security level I have "Disallowed." The admin account is a created account, with the administrator account disabled, and it is in the "Administrators" group.

When I set those settings, I am unable to run programs in disallowed locations, whether it be by simply double-clicking, or by right-clicking and selecting "Run as administrator."

However, when I set the default to "Basic User," it behaves as the "Disallowed" was described... Normal users (and admin account before elevating through right-click>run as administrator) cannot run the file, but it can be run through right-click>run as administrator. Is this how it should behave?

I have been doing some looking around online for a while, and so far have only found a couple other people with this issue... Unfortunately, neither had an answer in the thread. ... Read more

Here's a strange one. All of my DVD-RW drives are appearing as Local Disks when I view them in "My Computer". Moist of the drives in question are external (firewire and USB) however my integrated DRD-RW is also effected. Oddly, all of the drives are fully functional when used for burning/playing media, and they all appear properly in the Windows Disk Management console and applications that would require optical media (burning software and the like). That being the case, I guess this is more in the "annoyance" category as functionality is not the problem. In any case, I have tried all the quick fixes I can think of, i.e.; change drive letters and reboot, uninstall and search for new hardware, disable/enable. In all of the above operations, the drives briefly re-appear in "My Computer", all listed simply as " CD Drive". However, once I've accessed any of the drives they revert to "Local Disk".

This is a rather new W7 x64 PC. Didn't notice anything strange with the drives initially. The problem just sort of appeared after a reboot. Any explanations/suggestions appreciated

Thanks!

Hi everyone! Oh look, it's this thread again.

Well, sort of. A majority of what I can find are "Unidentified Network - No Internet Access". This is just straight-up "no network access", which seems to be a less common issue. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, and I'm connected to a BT Home Hub 2.0a via ethernet, using a BT Home Hotspot to make a connection using the power circuitry in the house.

My connection will drop completely out of the blue. It's fine and dandy right now, but at completely random times it will just drop. I can't clearly predict it. In Network & Sharing Center, it attempts to identify the network, only to give up and throw out "Unidentified Network - No Network Access". I'll detail symptoms and things I've done to try and fix it.

- 6-7 times out of 10, the connection can be restored by disabling/re-enabling the network adapter, or switching the Home Hotspot off and then on again; so essentially, disabling/re-enabling the connection. It will fail again some hours later.

- I've ruled out any issue with the Hotspot connection method, ethernet ports, and drivers as I've tried to connect directly to my Hub wirelessly with two separate USB dongles - wireless has the exact same issue, and in this scenario, the connection can be temporarily restored by moving the wireless dongle to another USB slot. Taking it out and putting it back into the same slot won't work, it has to be a different USB slot. And when that ... Read more

I recently built a call log database in Access 2007 for my team to use when calling agents on our top errors we see from a vendor's error report. My boss is requesting a report to see how many items have been resolved

I have a query started and I am trying to complete this task in a single query (if possible) instead of several queries (as I've done for a couple other things).

I have 3 tables I'm using: Assignment, AgtInfo and CallLog
Joins as follows: Assignment.st=AgtInfo.agcy_st
AgtInfo.agt_id=CallLog.agt_id

Fields in the results: Assignment.assigned_analyst, CallLog.rpt_mnth, CallLog.resolved

Resolved is a yes/no field. I've done a query that converts the -1 to a 1, so that the sum is a positive number for the "Yes" values. I'm not sure how to enter the expression to subract the "Yes" values from the total number of values (yes/no) to get to my "No" count.

Essentially, I'd like the results to display as:

assigned_analyst, rpt_mnth, CountYes_resolved, CountNo_resolved

So, my GF brought me one of her friends laptop to fix.

It seems that whenever it connects to a wireless network, it will not connect to the internet. So, I tried connecting it to my wireless at home, and it identifies the network, but says "Local Only". I try to ping google, and it pings fine, then the icon changes to Internet access for a few seconds, then goes away.

I thought maybe the laptop didn't like having a security key, so I opened the network, and connected again, but still the same results. I have browsed the internet, but I cannot find a solution, and was hoping someone might be able to assist with this.

I added a slave drive to my Windows XP Pro computer, and it appears to work properly.

However, when I open the "Documents and Settings" folder (on the slave drive E:\, which is Windows XP Home Edition -- not XP Pro), I do not see any of my documents, sub-folders, etc. There should be MANY sub-folders (inside the "My Documents" folder which isn't even visible), with hundreds of documents, jpgs, etc. within it.

When that drive is installed as the Primary drive in my other computer, the User "Larry" (which is me) has all Administrative privileges. On the computer that I'm running now (with the slave drive in it), I also have Administrator privileges. I own both computers.

My User Name "Larry" is password-protected when I login to Windows (when the drive is Primary and installed into my main computer (not this computer with XP Pro).

I've tried clicking on all the users; Administrator, Default User, Larry, Guest, etc. (Note: I get an "Access Denied" error when clicking on the Guest "Documents and Settings" folder).

Anyone tried deleting a registry key in Windows 7?  Got "access denied" or "Error while deleting key"?
The usual response is, "You need to run regedit as an administrator".  but I *AM* logged in as Administrator, and running regedit as administrator, trying to assign administrator full permissions on that registry key in order to delete it!!  
Am I mistaken, or isn't Administrator supposed to be able to administer and control all the settings on the computer, in order to set it up for the "Average Joe" user?
So, under the permissions menu of that key, go to advanced, change the owner from System to Administrator, and try again.  It's no longer saying "access denied", but "Cannot delete xxxxxx. Error while deleting key".

The scenario: Basically, the wireless has stopped working on a laptop. The device does not show up in Device Manager, but is in the registry, so the normal procedure is to delete the registry entry for the device in HKLM/System/CurrentControlSet (and /ControlSet001) /Enum/PCI    ,then attach the device or restart the computer, it finds the "new" hardware and reinstalls it. Easy!...

As this question was never answered I'll post it verbatim with my own comments below,
See original post here;
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/756093-flash-drive-s-active-light.html

In all operating systems up to Vista, the flash drive's "active" light turns off when I go through the disconnect procedure; but, in Vista, it doesn't. I have traditionally used this as part of my explanation to others (and a convenience to myself) about when to not to remove the flash drive from its USB port.

This is a problem common to all Vista systems I've seen.

Why does the light not turn off in Vista?

And, is there an easy way to correct this?

Additional information: I have eliminated this problem being hardware-related. I have loaded Vista onto one of my systems here that previously had Windows 2000, then XP on it and it was only with the loading of Vista that the problem developed on this system. Just to be absolutely sure, I did a restore of a previous image of Windows 2000 and the problem went away again. I put Vista back on and the problem came back. So, this is strictly a Vista problem.Click to expand...

I have had the same problem with every Vista system I have used and every flash drive (note this means SSD NAND flash not HDD's or card adapters). AS the last discussion degraded into useless questions about hardware and other OS's let's get a confirmation that someone out there actually has a flash drive that turns its activ... Read more

Answer:Flash drive's "active" light doesn't turn off in Vista when "safely removed"

have done a litte research and testing in my lab on several machines and have confirmd the problem. What it seems to indicate to me is that, in Vista, the light simply indicates power, not data transfer. Whenever I am transferring data, the light blinks.

While I have never actually tested it, I do not belive that the "safely remove" feature actually kills all power to the USB port in XP. If that is the case, then there is really no danger as long as vista has acknowledged the disconnect and knows not to try to write data to the drive.

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Answer:Changing the "minimize" "maximize" and "close" buttons of a theme

Use Windows Style Builder to do that...

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Please follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide
and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.
After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
If you cannot seem to login to an infected user account, try using a different user... Read more

Windows 7 Home Premium

I would provide a screenshot (or three) however that is at the crux of my problem - I should perhaps say my current problem...now, with "7" (I am beginning to tire RAPIDLY of 7, much more quickly than I did with either XP, or Vista).

PROBLEM: When I attempt to "Save As" a document (Notepad, for instance), or even a Paint image, I get a window/page/screen/whatever, that has no "Buttons" ... no button to "Save", no button to "Cancel". Simply NO BUTTONS???

I had this problem the other night, and we "faked" or cheated our way through it, by using the Enter (Return?) Key to advance the cursor (cursor??) to where we wanted to be (well, we "hoped" we were "there", anyway, since we could not "see" what button or drop-down dialog box was selected or highlighted).

It's almost as if I had a "Resolution" problem, whereby the resolution is set too low (say, 800 x 600), things are too big to be seen/won't FIT on the page. However, my resolution is set to the "Recommended" 1366 x 768.

Please help...this Netbook would be a WHOLE LOT easier to throw against a wall than my desktops ever were . . .

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

Type dpi into the Search box and choose "Make text smaller or larger" at the top of the search result list. In the window that opens see what it is set to. You want it at 100% rather than 125% or 150%. So if higher than 100% change it back to 100%. Hit Apply. You will need to reboot. See if that helps.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

I cannot get the wired ethernet or wireless working at all on this laptop. Under the Device Manager, the Broadcom 440x 10/100 NIC and the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG are both under "Unknown Devices". There is no "Network Adapters" like there should be. While it looks like both drivers are installed correctly, Windows doesn't recognize them as network hardware. There is nothing under network connections. I tried uninstalling the drivers from the Device Manger and restarting and XP just reinstalls the drivers and puts them right back under "Unknown". I also tried a system restore to when they did work and they still don't work now.

Any ideas? Anyway I can get "Network Adapters" back in the Device Manager?
 

Answer:NICs are showing up under "Unknown" and not "Network Adapaters'" in device manager

If they show up as unknown..the drivers are not installed correctly. Remove them...get the proper drives for them...you'll probably have to transfer those drivers over using something like a USB thumb drive. Follow the instructions on installing those drivers.

This is a question for information about why my networking problem finally was resolved.
I have four PC?s on my network; one Windows 7 and three Windows XP. The Windows 7 PC always sees all three of the other computers. However the Windows XP computers sometimes don?t see the other XP computers when I press ?My Network Places.? Quite by accident I discovered that if I press ?View Workgroup Computers? then ALL the other PC?s in the network DO show up. Furthermore, if I click through "View Workgroup Computers" and access/edit a file on one of the other computers, then this computer will ALSO show up in ?My Network Places.? This behavior seems to be quite consistent and works every time I have tried it. Apparently, this is a workaround to the long vexing problem of why my networked PC?s sometimes don?t show up under ?My Network Places.?

My question: why does ?View Workgroup Computers? apparently always show all the networked PC?s, when ?My Network Places? does so only intermittently or sometimes not at all?

Thanks for any response.

I have a full backup copy of the hard drive which is only a month old and it has only 1 local folder. The only difference between is the addition of the Opera standalone mail program.

Newbie here. I have searched around for a while but have not found a post with my exact situation.

I just installed a new Seagate Momentus 500gb (7200rpm) SATA drive in my Lenovo X61 laptop and have been working on a installation of Windows7 Ultimate.

Not realizing this was an upgrade install disk, I tried to install Win7. I didn't know about the clean install method, so I started over with an installation of WinXP (slipstreamed to deal with the SATA drive).

Next, I ran the Custom Installation upgrade to Win7.

So far, it seems to be working ok.

However, the Local Drive is D: instead of C:. The System Reserved drive in labeled C:. Should I be concerned? Should/Can I change this?

Attached are screenshots of Disk Management and explorer window.

Thank you for any info.
-Nate

Answer:"System Reserved (C:)" and "Local Disk (D:)" ??

Try removing the System Reserved drive letter in Disk Management to see if Win7 claims C instead. It sometimes works.

There is no reason you can't operate with Win7 as D even though it is meant to always assume the C letter unless it's installer is run from another OS.

But if you do I would not allow a drive letter for SysReserved as programs can write to and corrupt it, especially the ability to make Win7 backup images.

Now that you know you can clean install Win7 without needing XP on the HD, I would strongly consider booting the installer to do a Custom install, choose Drive Options to Delete all partitions, Create new as you wish, then Format before installing to first partition after SysReserved it will create for you. The installer will see an OS at boot to allow use of Upgrade version key upfront during install.

Here are tips to get a perfect reinstall - use the ones which apply: Clean Reinstall steps

Hi,

I just tried to install the latest iTunes update, but keep getting an error when it tries to access the C:\Program Files\iPod folder.

When I try to access the iPod folder directly through Windows Explorer, I get "Access is denied".

The same happens when logged in with the system administrator account.

When I right-click the folder and choose Properties > Security, the Current owner field shows "Unable to display current owner." And it won't allow either of the listed administrator accounts to take ownership.

When I choose Properties > Security > Advanced > Owner, the Current owner field also shows "Unable to display current owner." And it won't allow me to Edit it either.

I've tried opening the Command Prompt as the administrator, and deleting the folder, but it won't allow me to do that either.

Any ideas on how to forcefully take ownership and/or delete this folder?

This hit my computer without warning, I switched it on this morning and it worked as normal, all of a sudden things started to freeze up. I restarted the computer, and now a lot of programs are refusing to open - Microsoft Office, among others, states "Error: There Are No More Files", whilst other programs such as Google Chrome and Internet Explorer state "Attempt to Access From Invalid Address", even when I am running them from their root folders.

I have scanned my system with Avast Antivirus, which didn't state that there were any viruses, so I am stuck as to what exactly the problem is.
