  1. Hi all, Long time no see! I am running into a problem. I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 that does not allow you to RDP (mstsc.exe) from a Windows 7 VDI desktop. The exact error is (using an online image as a ref): I have checked the following: Launched mstsc from the Win7 desktop, clicked Show Options, navigated to the Experience tab, unchecked "Reconnect if the connection is dropped" (read that might cause it, idk why though). Ensured that the domain group is in the Remote Desktop Users group, and the server verified that I have permissions to RDP to it.
  2. Going to try and add some information, and answer your questions: Could it be some conflict with the Hosts file: To my knowledge the host file in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts is configured correctly. It hasn't been touched in 2 years. Checked it again just to make sure, and it looks good. Is there any chance that the addresses have been added in IE "Internet zone": Great point. Higher level GPO's are preventing me from checking the actual Internet Options, however I was able to run a gpresult, dump it to a html file, and check the GPO settings from the domain. It seems the the
  3. So our environment is configured as followed. We have XenApp 6.5 servers, all handing out desktops to users. Everything works smooth except for the Bypass Proxy for Intranet sites. When using IE you eventually get to to the site after about 25 seconds of waiting, and 25 seconds of waiting per each page to load for all INTERNAL websites. For EXTERNAL websites i.e. Google.com, it loads fast. I have two attachments. 1. NotWorking.png: Is the configuration we are running. Blacked out is our internal sites and proxy server, but they pull this from GPO. 2. Working.png: is the configu
  4. So without going into detail, we have an exe and batch file that starts up at launch of someones desktop. It is a provisioned / Citrix environment and has to be done by GPO. How do I make the exe and batch file "Trusted" so they can run on startup of someone logging into their desktop? GPO style.
  5. Throwing this in the mix. Put the echo first then set. @echo off echo|set /p"FN=FolderName"Pause
  6. C:\Windows\Installer folder contains a lot of patches. You should clean that folder out if the patches are already installed, those files "should" only be used to uninstall the patches. Try cleaning that Installer folder out. Probably will find a lot of .msp files in there.
  7. I don't have any studio's open in front of me, but sample the code below: dim proc as ProcessStartInfo("cmd.exe")dim pr as Processpr=Process.Start(proc)pr.StandardInput.WriteLine("taskkill /f /im iexplorer.exe")Add that between the try/catch. The application will still close afterwards too (at least it should).
  8. What I currently have is a Lenovo T520 laptop, and all the drivers install sucessfully except the modem. The way we are building our images we need sysprep to install the drivers for us, so, I currently have the correct driver (I believe) and when I install by hand it it works. But when sysprep installs the driver for me during the initial setup I always have this one driver with an exclamation point in device manager. ThinkPad Modem Adapter When I right click on it and click properties I get can see this error. A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be
  9. Thanks, It was doing that with WoW download, but its like that for any download as well. P2P FTP etc. Also, when I power up my computer, it takes a min before I can browse to any websites ex. this morning, Powered up the machine, waited 3 mins then could navigate to this website. If I power up my machine and immediately go to any website it times out. Note that this is after I gain my static ip from my router and I can ping my router, but I cant browse for another 2-3 mins.
  10. So computers on the router can see other computers on the router, and computers on the modem can see other computers on the modem, but they can't talk across from modem to router and vice versa, and ALL computers have internet access. Here are a few steps that I would take, although they are never the best just something I would do. 1. Ensure they are all on the same subnet (or that the modem and router are putting them on the same subnet and network etc. etc.). 2. Connect all the computers to one device ex. router, this is just to reinforce your idea that the router > modem or modem &g
  11. Here is an overview of what I have. I currently upgraded from DSL when I moved to Cable now. My connection before worked very fine. I still use the same hardware such as nic, cables, and switch at my new house. My cable speeds are 30mbps down, 5mbps up. This is what has been happening, and I will use tonight as an example. I start downloading World Of Warcraft. It is running at a moderately slow download speed of 300kbps (considering my download spee is 30mbps). Now when I go to navigate to lets say Hotmail.com, the dns lookup either fails by timing out, or it takes roughly 20 seconds to find
  12. Did you use special software to prepare the usb drive? And like Trip said does this happen when you boot using other usb drives? This is a strange one You didn't by chance install the os back to the usb drive did you? Not sure how you could but...
  13. Are you configuring your friends computer from a fresh install or has his this os been on his computer for awhile. I have used a program called RegShot (i believe) years ago to do something similar to this, although, I am not sure if you can use it in your situation. Basically takes a before shot of your system, you do some changes, then takes an after, and lets you compare / contrast what has changed. And i think you can compile it to a reg file to run on another machine. Now the problem with this is, you have to run it before and after on the original machine. You have to have similar syst
  14. I just wanted to follow up on this problem. Despite my server hosting company saying it was not the VPS, in fact when they moved my node over to another server my VPS began working great. No issues yet (as of a few weeks). So similar issues could possibly be resolved this same way.
  15. Thanks for that point of direction. At this time in the perfmon everything seems normal until the temp freeze happens again. In the monitor I am watching the processes cpu time, and you can seem slight ups and downs as users of the website are viewing/surfing pages. Although when the freeze happens, the perfmon completely quits recording information as seen below. Working Graph Graph When Freezing This is just what I was watching at the time when I took the screen shots, but it would still have gaps in the graph when you were viewing something else as well. I did run back through the eve
  16. Hey, I have a VPS that is with a cheaper hosting package, it has low RAM (less than 1GB). The services that it is running provide me with a website, and this site operates on MySQL, PHP, and the latest edition of Apache. The server itself is Windows 2003 SP2. At any given time I am only using around 230mb's +-50mb's at a time. But always under 300mbs so no where near maxed out. The problem that I am having is about every 5 mins, for 30 seconds, the server will become very very slow to respond to http request say if someone was trying to visit a web page on my website, or, will become unrespo
  17. I have a textbox say that has to following information in it. John Sally Rob Henry Joe And i want to completely delete and remove the top line and leave the rest of the information in the textbox such as Sally Rob Henry Joe How would i do so. It's late at nite, and my brain is having a hard time figuring this one out >.<
  18. Here is my idea lol... If it is a school of sharks, they are in a group, swimming around the island as one single unit? You would get in the water when they are on the opposite side of the island, and swim in the same direction as the sharks at the same speed, you will never catch them and they will never catch you. Then wait until the fire is burnt out. And if this matters, make a boat out of unburnt wood, then do the steps above. Close?
  19. well it was when i was creating accounts, seems to be a setting that forces complex passwords, since when i use a password such as joe123, i get that error, or a password of joe, i get an error. But when i use the password Joe123 or Black88 (something with a cap letter and number combination in the password) it works.
  20. Here is a screenshot of what i have so far. I installed DNS, the prefered DNS for this server is itself (, i also installed ADDS. When i atempt to add lets say Bob Joe, the password always returns the error as shown in the image below, when i click finished.
  21. Sorry for the late response. I installed FireFox on the machine to bypass some possible IE restrictions and security features which once installed i could browse online. IE still would not browse online which is fine. Also, the updates would never work but i was able to do a few offline updates which works fine.
  22. normally on home machines doing this can be a very good fast option to determine what is slowing it down, just in general. 1. Click start > run > type msconfig 2. Click Services tab > check Hide All Microsoft > and using general common sense uncheck what you would not use ex. adobe everytime you boot 3. Click Startup tab > and basically uncheck everything that you do not use when you startup with the exception of anything related to hardware such as nVidia drivers or a printer software / driver as this may cause them to completely not work. Also this may be a useful tool as we
  23. So i loaded a older computer at home (4-6 years old) with Server 2k8 to test some new software we are using at work, and after the installation i did not have the NIC driver which was i believe a Linksys LNE TX100 pci nic. So i found the driver on the website, couldnt find one for Server 2k8 or Win7 so i used i believe Vista, and the driver installed properly and seemed to work fine. I could connect to my lan at home find, ping all the computers connected to my router, but could not access anything else online such as Windows Updates, or ever browse to Google. It would just sit there, never ti
  24. yep, if by chance it is running fat32 just run convert.exe, convert the file system. ntfs has permissions that allow access but not read/write.
  25. elaborate a tad bit more about what you wanna do. i currently have several vb forums running 3.8.0 so we are in the same boat if your talking about aftershockforums.com
