  1. Please do not quote like that, it is 100% un-called for. See: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=645737 Anyways I'll remove it in the next update.... And no it is obvious this is the latest list: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?s=&amp...st&p=632413
  2. I have over a dozen times and yet to hear anything about what is being done about it. I always get an email back saying please contact Microsoft product support. Which I have done and they can't help, unless of course you are willing to pay $500 per hour.
  3. Yes I bugged this back in pre beta 1 and it was never fixed. Every time I bugged it they simply said it was unreproducible. Yet everyone always can.
  4. Most likely it's an address scheme issue. Make sure there are no conflicting settings on both computers. For example make sure both are not using the same IP address.

  6. I really wish people would learn to use google. Search buddy, search. Not that hard to find it Simply search the file name and its the first result... That is "Windows6.0-KB931770-x86.msu". See how easy that was....
  7. Too bad it does not really fix the issue for everyone.
  8. Hi, This is not UAC at all. This is due to the fact that your normal admin accounts are not real admins. Your account does not own the files and folder by default... And you only have read access permissions to them as well... To fix this permanently you can run as a real admin via the likes of: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=537806 Or you can take ownership and gain full rights to files and folders on the fly... Take Ownership of a folder plus all files in specified directory and all subdirectories: takeown /F "%Systemroot%\System32\drivers" /R Take Ownership of a file: takeown /F "%Systemroot%\System32\drivers\tcpip.sys" Give yourself full rights on a folder plus all files in specified directory and all subdirectories icacls "%Systemroot%\System32\drivers" /grant %username%:F /T Give yourself full rights on a file: icacls "%Systemroot%\System32\drivers\tcpip.sys" /grant %username%:F Take Care, Will
  9. Each WEP enabled router has a single WEP key. So if every student where to receive their own unique router WEP key then that would be a ton of routers. 1 router per student basically. Sounds like some miscommunication has occurred as I doubt that is what the university has in mind. I bet they have simply setup a wireless local area network that connects out to the WAN (Internet) which is used among many users in your area of the building. Students can connect into this LAN via their wireless nic cards, but your nic card must support WEP encryption and you must know the correct WEP key. The IT department should give the required WEP key to you; it is sent out via some sort of secure method, either by written letter or by secure on campus student email, generally. All the students share the same WEP key. They still know who you are because they assign IP addresses automatically via DHCP which allows IT to keep track of who is who, generally by nic MAC addresses. All of which can easily be spoofed these days, so WEP is pretty useless.... But it does keep the kiddies away... That or I am totally misunderstanding this entirely, certainly possible.
  10. Works in vista, dont have xp installed atm, so not sure if xp supports this or not... takeown /F "C:/Documents and Settings" /R icacls "C:/Documents and Settings" /grant %username%:F
  11. That makes no sense at all. WEP requires an encryption key. You cant just get it automatically or anyone could fake it and get free access. Unless you mean they are using 802.1X with PEAP and they are using certificates as well as your PC's user name and password. Which I highly doubt.... WEP is very weak you should be able to hack it in a few hours. lol Just ask the system admin for the WEP key, and might want to tell them to use WPA instead... I really cant think of any other way to automatically be given the WEP key in a secure manner, and never heard of any university doing this... Could they be using some specialized software that you need to download from them? I take it you got an email about this. So strange....
  12. Just fake the referrer using javascript or something... lol Works 99% of the time.
  13. KB931099 is now back online as version 4... About time!

  19. Hi Here is the patched tcpip.sys for Vista: http://securevista.blogspot.com/2007/04/vi...imit-patch.html Enjoy, Will
  20. Was a feature, and it was removed, was meant for testing only by private and TAP beta testers.
  21. Nice tweak, wondering if it breaks the EULA though?

  24. It's an issue with the Search Desktop feature which is also found in Vista so that's why I included it. Is an addon for Windows XP and Win2k3. But yes most are having the issue with outlook but not everyone. Note the fact that you can install it fine without Outlook even being installed on your PC. Because most users who are having the issue are those who have Outlook 2007 installed, that is why they marked it as such, but really it's an update for the windows component, search desktop. Anyways, I'll remove it from my list if everyone thinks I should.
