I'm wondering if it's possible to disable me being able to login to certain site (Like certain gmail accounts) while on my VPN connection or off my VPN connection. For example, I can only log into Acc #1 while not connected to my VPN and I can only login to Acc #2 while connected to my VPN. That way IP's don't get mixed up in the logs.

Thanks.

After I installed Sygate and the computer restarted, the registration
window opened up and so I connected the PC to internet to do the
registration. Right after that, a message window popped up asking me
whether I want to say "yes" or "No" to this: "An application named
NDIS User mode I/O Driver (file name ndisuio.sys) is trying to access
Internet."

Instead of choosing yes or no, I closed the window. Imediate, a window
popped up AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN saying that "An application
named NDIS User mode I/O Driver (file name ndisuio.sys) 'HAS BEEN
BLOCKED' from accessing the network.

It disppeared on tis own and right away another window with the same
type of message appeared, this time for a different application with
file anme "svchost.exe" asking the same thing. I did the same thing
and experienced the same response.

NT Kernel and system, same thing.

and Application layer??

do i allow these?

Do I allow this file to be accessed?
 

Answer:NIISUIO.SYS, allow or disallow?

Why are you quoting from a thread someone posted in another forum almost two years ago.

I got a unix server running a whole bunch of stuff on it. Well the story goes, cron freaked out and sent a message every few seconds for like a week without me noticing. Now I got a mailfile with 90,000+ messages and unix mail command can't seem to handle it.

So basically I was wondering if anyone knew what to do to clear the mail file (it's all junk), and maybe reject all email to root so this doesn't happen in the future.

Normally I'd just delete and recreate the user or something basic like that. Although I feel deleting root wouldn't go over too well


PS It's redhat es3


***EDIT***
I think I figured it out, it looks like PINE can handle it just fine. Thanks if you were investigating though.

About a year ago, I remember finding a command that placed my computer into a diagnostic mode for startup. It allowed me to either run a DLL or skip it on startup.

Unfortunately I do not recall what that mode is, nor how to enter it anymore... and of course have need of it again. Can anyone recall its name?

Thank you,
 

Answer:How to selectively allow or disallow dlls on startup

I think its the command prompt option when you press F8 before XP boots.

A couple of years ago Microsoft started issuing really creepy updates to Windows 7. Some of them installed Windows 10 automatically!!! While others sent telemetry back home. At the same time it became apparent that Microsoft cannot be trusted because Windows 10 spies on its users (no doubt girls are the real targets).
 
Upon discovering this, I immediately found lists of all the 'telemetry' and Win 10 updates and uninstalled them. I also set my computer to "Never check for updates". (I had originally set it to "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them" but I discovered that this option can't be trusted and will still automatically install certain updates.)
 
Since then, I haven't been installing any new Windows updates, partly because I simply do not trust Microsoft at all, and partly because there doesn't seem to be any reliable source of information about which new updates can be trusted.
But I'm wondering how risky is this? I'd love to have all the latest legitimate security updates as I don't want viruses, but then again I don't want my OS sending telemetry home! It's not that I've got anything to hide - I haven't - it's just the principle of wanting privacy.

Answer:How risky is it to disallow Windows updates?

It is risky, and foolish, to block Windows Updates on any version of Windows.   No one has said it better than one of our very own BSOD experts:
 
There really isn't a point to checking for updates and not installing them. . .  It's important to install all available updates. I've been doing this since the days of DOS, and I still don't have the confidence to pick and choose among updates.  There are just too many variables involved - and most people can't evaluate the full consequences of installing/not installing updates.
        ~ John Carrona, AKA usasma on BleepingComputer.com, http://www.carrona.org/
 
If you distrust Microsoft that much then you need to find an alternative OS, plain and simple, that you are willing to allow updates to be applied to.

I want to share a folder on my laptop, but a subfolder needs to not be shared, I currently have 'everyone' set to read only on the share (as this is what's needed') but I want to prevent access for everyone to the subfolder over the share (not locally), but I cannot seem to find a way to do so.
I could set 'everyone' to deny full permissions on the local permissions but that would prevent both local and network access, that's unsuitable because I still need local access. Is there a solution?

It must be simple but I cant figure out, in the sharing tab I see that the other disk are not shared but yet when I login with guest account I can browse all the disk.
How to disallow guest account to browse all disk except C drive?

Answer:disallow guest account to browse all disk except C:/

As the guest account is a member of the "everyone group" it will have the view and navigate permissions that are default for this group.

To do what you wish you could remove the everyone group and then grant the users specific rights where you wish them to see

or you could set a deny permission to the guest account for those areas that you wish to keep hidden from them.

I would advise caution in changing the everyone group permissions or setting deny options as this can, if sufficient care and planning is not taken, cause unpredictable results including completely locking out all users

I recently got a Bluetooth mouse. While it's been a great addition to my hardware family, it also has the same tendency as every other wireless mouse I've ever owned, to wake my Surface Pro 3 from sleep. I want to disable that property, so I tried to do what worked on previous versions of Windows: open Device manager and try to configure the mouse, then the Bluetooth link associated with the mouse, and finally the Bluetooth adapter itself, to stop waking the tablet from sleep.

When I tried to make that setting under the appropriate HID-compliant mouse (the only one reporting its location as Bluetooth), there was no Power Management tab. Same story with the entry for my mouse under Bluetooth. Furthermore, the adapter itself had a Power Management tab, but the option I wanted to change was grayed out.

Is there another workaround I could use to prevent unwanted power consumption?

If the data on the drive is not critical, I would avoid the "Repair Install" and perform a "Clean Install" that wipes the partition out, recreates it, reformats it, and then you should be good....

Howdy:

Looking for guidance on optimal settings for new Dell system before I fire it up (specs in my profile).

This is my first Win10 system and my first desktop, "production box" PC with dual drives (SSD (OS) + spinner (data)) and UEFI.

I have read the many fabulous (!) tutorials on "fast start", "fast boot", "secureboot", "hibernation", "Advanced Boot Options", "power" and "UEFI firmware".
But I am a nearly-silver-surfer and an auto-didact, when it comes to computers.
So I still have questions based on the new hardware and OS, compared to Win 7 with HDD.

Answer:Fast Start/Fast Boot/Hibernation Settings for OEM Win10/64 Pro SSD?

My system is set up "Let Windows Take Care of Windows".
Meaning I installed Windows 10 letting the installer take care of everything.

Install the OS and any drivers then run winsat formal in an admin command prompt, reboot, and Windows will set the system up for your SSD and any HDDs you have.

I do recommend keeping Fast Start, in settings app, turned off, , as I have had problems with some tiles such as Mail & Calendar refreshing/updating, and FilePendingRename need a restart or complete shutdown & boot to make any changes to system files. The SSD will boot fast enough.

In Bios keep Secure & Fast boot on.

Do not worry about writes, the newer SSDs will probably outlast your MOBO these days
Only obvious thing(and I know you already do this MM) back up all data,
because when a SSD goes to hell, the data is totally unrecoverable, as opposed to a HDD, where if you're lucky, some might be saved.

All tweaks are totally unnecessary, as Windows 8-10 makes system settings for EACH disk independent of the other, for example Prefetch is automatically turned off for SSDs, but on for the HDDs in a mixed build.

Howdy:

Looking for guidance on optimal settings for new Dell system before I fire it up (specs in my profile).

This is my first Win10 system and my first desktop, "production box" PC with dual drives (SSD (OS) + spinner (data)) and UEFI.

I have read the many fabulous (!) tutorials on "fast start", "fast boot", "secureboot", "hibernation", "Advanced Boot Options", "power" and "UEFI firmware".
But I am a nearly-silver-surfer and an auto-didact, when it comes to computers.
So I still have questions based on the new hardware and OS, compared to Win 7 with HDD.
And I'm not 100% sure of the default settings for some of these under Win 10, so I don't know what needs to be tweaked.

I have an Ideapad 6-month old Y460p with a 6 cell battery. I have it set to only charge to 80% to extend the battery life. However, when I run on battery power, it starts out saying I have 3+ hours left, then in less than 40 minutes tells me I have 6% battery power left and have to plug in. Strangely, when I do plug in, it claims to be back to 80% in 18 or so minutes! Is my battery faulty?













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:Y460p battery draining too fast, also charging too fast?

Hi CBFord, please remove the battery and reinsert it again to make sure it's connected firmly.Charge the battery to full 100% then use your Y460p on battery power until only 10 to 15% power is left,shut it down then start up again and immediately press F2 key and keep pressed until it enters first BIOS screen.Let it sit like that until the battery is empty and Y460p shuts off by itself.This procedure will create a battery-empty reference.Next plug the charger in and let it charge for a couple of hours, boot up and  make sure it's fully 100% charged.Then run the laptop again on battery power only and hopefully you will get 2 to 3 hours of use until the low batt warning pops up. please also read battery life review of similar Y560p model laptop...http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Y560p-M61G3GE-Notebook.55605.0.html please post outcome...

Hello all (and Karbo, if you're looking in)...I can't reply to my thread of last week (IE closes as soon as I hit Reply)...My problem has devolved further. First I managed to make the Internet Options menu inaccessible,and now I can only boot into Safe Mode. The problem seems to be right after the XP splash screen - it displays a Blue Screen for maybe 1/4 second, not long enough to read more than a small word of the error message. No desktop. It then reboots continuously with the same symptoms. I have rolled the registry back with ERUNT, but the blue screen persists regardless of how far back I turn it, so it appears the registry itself isn't involved.

Worse, my PS2 keyboard driver doesn't load in Safe Mode, though the wireless mouse does work..? So I am unable to log in to get to the desktop. Any ideas where to start that doesn't involve reinstalling XP? Particulars: Home build - ASUS P5W DH Deluxe, Core2 Duo E6600, 2gb Corsar RAM, WinXP Home w/SP2 UTD fixes, Kaspersky IS 2009, The system has run well for almost 2 years. I am the admin and these problems seem Plaxico-esque..lol, sad to say. Thanks for your ideas...steve in vt

Hi

I have an Acer Travelmate 2702wlmi laptop that Blue screens at the xp loading screen on boot. It flashes up the BSOD so fast you cant see the error code generated.

I have rebuilt the laptop onto a new HDD, swapped the memory out and i still dont know if it's software or hardware causing it ( suspect hardware).

After the BSOD, the laptop reboots and just goes round in an endless circle. If i power it down and then up again i get the ntldr is missing message and can use a boot disc to get back i to it fine. Last night i used it for hours fine, and rebooted it several times, but early today turning it on caused all the issues again.

If i leave the battery out and run it off mains it makes no difference, checked the fans are running and it does not appear to be hot.
Any help would be appreciated, even if someone knows how to get the error code off the BSOD ( stop it flashing up)

Webpages load very slowly - or donít load at all. This can be any website, like Google.com. Downloading through the browser doesnít work at all.

When I start my computer, I have fast working internet (uTorrent, browser, gaming, etc.). But within ten minutes problems occur:

Any page (using a lot: google.com, beatport.com) loads slowly (15-30sec) - or donít load at all. Some pages donít get any connection and when F5 it sometimes pops up (also after the 15-30 sec).
After the 15 seconds of loading time, the content appears ofter very quick.
Downloading via uTorrent is very fast, reaches 2 MBs download speed, at the same time the browser loads very slow or not at all (of course also tried with uTorrent closed).
Downloading via the browser works for the same first 10 minutes when I just start my computer, but after this the downloads completely freeze and from this never go further. If i pause them and then resume then again, the downloads stay at 0 B/s.This means I cannot download anything, using the browser, that takes more then 10 minutes of download time.
During slow connection, starting any new (small) download, it will get stuck at 0.0 or 0.1 MB.

I use wireless internet, but the other laptops using the same connection donít have this problem.
I also use via Parallels Desktop Windows 7 x64, here the same problems occur after 10 minutes. I tested different browsers like: firefox, ie8, chrome on both Mac + Windows, without any plugins. I donít use any kind of virusscan... Read more

Hiya-Hello. (Osu, I feel bad, two topics on BC right off the bat. Too many computer problems. Sorry for the somewhat spamming.)

I'm in the process of trying to repair my good friend's laptop.
EDITED: It's a Compaq: Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005,HP, Presario V600.

__
Here is the problem: The laptop starts up and shows the main "Compaq" screen. With the press Esc for setup, and so forth.
If you try to run Windows normally, you get a lovely blue-screen of death.
Safe mode is the same.
And last know good configuration, also gives a blue screen.

Here is another issue. I do not even have a second to read the error message when the laptop will restart.
__
I want to know if I can find a way to view the message without tweaking the Control Panel (I can not reach it.)
And, if this is a driver or hardware issue, that can, or can not be fixed.

Anyway, thank you for checking out my topic, and for any assistance you can provide me with. : )

Answer:Blue screen on startup in all modes, laptop restarts too fast to read the error

On a 4-year old laptop running Windows 7, I've been burning, in Windows Explorer, Verbatim brand DVD-DL discs rated at 8x, on an external USB Panasonic UJ-220 blu-ray burner that can burn DVD-DL at 2.4x, at 2.4x (the only burn speed choice that Windows Explorer offers), with no problem.

Now I'm trying to do the same, with the same external USB burner and with discs from the same cake, on a 1-year old desktop, also running Windows 7. Both the laptop and the desktop are running 64-bit Windows 7.

On the desktop, I get this error:

=========================================
There was a problem burning this disc

The write speed for the recordable disc is either too fast or too slow for your CD or DVD burner. Insert a recordable disc that has a different write speed, adn then try again.
=========================================

Then it offers choices to try with a different disc, save the temp files for later, etc.

I've tried with 3 discs, and got the same error with all of them.

The UJ-220 has two USB plugs; one for data & power, and one for just additional power. I thought maybe the burner wasn't getting enough power from the cable that's just for power. So I plugged that cable into the laptop, leaving the data cable in the desktop. Same problem.


Burning a disc rated at 8x at 2.4x, in a burner rated at 2.4x, should be no problem, but even if it was, why does it work fine with the laptop?

Answer:Error burning DVD with Windows Explorer: "disc to fast or too slow"

Hi GregL,

Normally I would say that is because of media incompatibility with the burner (some brands just don't get on with each other), but reading through your post this can't be the problem as you're using the same discs and burner on both machines. The only thing I can think of at the moment is that the drive is being picked up by your laptop as USB 2.0 but only USB 1.1 by your desktop.

I have setup wifi at our home (802.11g). I'm planning to switch to Astound for my service provider. Astound has 5 internet plans: 256 Kbps, 1.5 Mbps, 6 Mbps, 10 Mbps, and 18 Mbps, all downstream speeds. The no brainer solution is to go with the fastest plan, if you can afford it. But my question is: since you can only push data through 802.11g at its speed limit, does it make sense to go with the 18 Mbps cable plan? In other words, can you really get 18 Mbps (or anything close to it) of download speed if you are connected through a wireless router? Aren't you always limited by the bandwidth of 802.11g?

Answer:Desktop wifi slow.Wired desktop Fast.Laptop wifi fast.

You should run this tunnel adaptor remover first. Too many of these indicates a driver problem and it will also ruin your connection if there are too many of those tunnel adaptors. This problem happens all the time. Click and save the zip file, then run the zip file and reboot.

You might also considering using a different driver for this network adaptor. If the problem happens again it may help to remove the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter using device manager as it's known to cause connection problems such as you seem to be having.


Just use Tunnel Adapter – Microsoft 6to4 adapter Remover

I reformatted a compaq presario sr1220nx

When I try to download the drivers (the internet is working), it starts to download @ 9% finished and 16.0 kb/s but does not go any further. I've tried downloading from multiple websites (i.e. hp.com & cnet.com). Please help me!
 

Answer:Need Help FAST please!

First, we need to know which version of Windows you're using. Second, are you using the ethernet port or a wifi adapter? Third, I'd say the driver for the internet is faulty and that's causing the problem, or somehow the TCPIP stack (or WinSock) has somehow been corrupted. It would be best if you could attach an Everest report as per the instructions in this thread, follow the steps in the quoted section.

Now we will need to make the rule for your router, by doing this you need to go into your router. You can do this by going into Internet Explorer (or whatever client you use for the Internet), and then type in the IP address of the router. Now log into the router and go into "advanced" (at top of screen on mine). Then on the sidebar to the left click the "gaming" button (is only left side for me...) Then you need to make a new rule and fill in the blanks with this information:

Name: SERVERNAME
IP address: Your ip address
TCP Ports to open: 43594
UDP Ports to open:
Inbound Filter: Allow All

Ok so heres my dillema. I have a dell computer that is very very bad. It's about 5 years old, and only 128 ram. My mom, and sister both used my computer for 5 years, downloading there things on MY computer, getting there ciggerete ashes on MY keyboard, and getting sticky gooey stuff all over my desk. About 2 months ago my mom bought a Dell computer. Our cases look identical, so heres what I am wanting to do. I am wanting to switch our computers, I want to switch all my files to her computer, and I want to switch all her files to my computer. Then I'll be moving the computers to the opposite rooms. I think I deserve this, so don't judge me. A kid can only game so much with 128 of ram. So heres what I need to do. I need to transfer all the files, my mom is leaving around 7 and will be back at 8 in the morning. I have a router setup between the two computers. Can I transfer Files from the two computers through my lynksis router? Thanks
 

Answer:Need help fast pls ty

In the long run you'll be better off if you spend more time on spelling and less on gaming. And maybe less time trying to do something behind somebody's back.

Try talking with your mom and sister about cleaning up your computer, and if you can double or quadruple the memory and if they will help with that.

Try the motherboard manufacturers website.You should be able to download a manual for the motherboard from there which should give information as to speed of processors that it will take. Its always handy to have around anyway.

Boot from the flash drive. When you get to the start screen go into start up recovery
Once there choose command prompt...
type the following into the command prompt one line at a time...

diskpart
select disk 0
clean
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs label="WIN7" quick
active
assign
exit

now do return to the start install and install windows normally. It should work for you.

Good Luck..

Answer:I Need Help.....fast

This sounds like there's serious problems with your system. Do you have the eMachines restore disk and can you access the eMachines recovery partition on the hard drive? I'd suspect that a complete restore will fix all of your problems - but be sure to backup your stuff first.

Question: How fast can I go?

Is there a way to test your connection speed? I just got a cable modem and so far have only been able to download files at about 40 kbps. I was getting 47-50 from my modem... needless to say I am a bit bummed. I know there are alot of variables such as server, time of day, #of other users etc.. I was hoping to find a site that might help me out.

Thanks in advance for the knowledge.

Answer:How fast can I go?

go to www.speedguide.net and use the patch for registry tweaks

Then go to www.dslreports.com under the tools menu they have a couple of test servers that will test up and down. If your not a member you can only run one test every 24 hours. Pays to be a member.

generally with mine I get 250K+up and 1.4mps down.

Please follow standard cleanup procedures as given below:

- Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ ME FIRST BEFORE ASKING FOR SUPPORT: Basic Spyware, Trojan And Virus Removal

Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.

- Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.


After doing ALL of the above and you still have a problem, make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps below:



Download HijackThis 1.99.1

Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the ZIP file as your backups will not be safely stored.

Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

Run HijackThis and save your log file.

Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next post. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post as it will be removed).

i have a dell dimension 1100 desktop with windows xp. when ever i go to open dell jukebox by musicmatch it keeps saying ThreadUtils.dll could not be found. to try reinstalling it. how do i do that? the jukebox was on the computer when i purchased it. any help would be greatful.
 

Answer:need help fast

The default location for this file should be: c:\program files\musicmatch\musicmatch jukebox\threadutils.dll from what information I've found online. You can try browsing to that point and seeing if the file is there or not, or do a file search and see if the file is anywhere else. If not, you could try downloading this file (search the filename on google and there are many places it can be obtained) and place it in that folder. Otherwise, you may need a reinstall. Hope that helps.

Hi,I am thinking of changing my ADSL connection from "BT Openworld Home 500" to "Fast 24" click here. They offer twice the speed at 1MB for less than my monthly BT charges.Has anybody used Fast 24 as I am a heavy internet user that need to be connected 24/7 so need a very reliable service.Any advice appreciated.

Answer:Does anybody use "Fast 24"

I use the 2mb service, and I signed my Dad up with the 1mb. Absolutely no problems with my Dad connection. A slight hickup (due to BT) with mine, no problems since. Very fast, no downtime that I have noticed (although they do occasionally send out emails saying service may be affected due to upgrades)Would definately recommend you give it a try. A short 3 month contract if you don't like it. A vast improvement over bts standard 512kb service.
