    You can use Local Policy to restrict access to the Control Panel, and to prevent the user from installing any applications. To disable Control Panel by using Group Policy settings In the Run dialog box, type gpedit.msc. In the Group Policy console tree, under User Configuration, open the Administrative Templates folder. Click the Control Panel folder. In the details pane, double-click Disable Control Panel. Click Enabled. To lock down the installation of programs, use a Software Restriction policy set to dissallowed and open up what you need from there. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310791/ for details. As far as the file system is concerned, you'll need to use NTFS to lock it down. If you're on FAT32 you need to convert to NTFS first using the convert <volume> /fs:NTFS command Preventing the user from modifying any files on the system is a little trickier.
  3. Open Internet Explorer / Internet Options / Security and add *.hotmail.com to your Trusted Sites list.
  4. It is difficult to understand exactly what it is you are asking... However, if you are looking to: 1. Boot 2. Launch Batch file (which modifies winnt.sif ?) 3. Launch setup with winnt.sif Just make a DOS boot disk, launch your .bat file from autoexec.bat, and then run winnt and pass it the .sif file
  5. Here you go: Renames the file C:\Scripts\Toggle_Service.vbs to C:\Scripts\Toggle_Service.old. strComputer = "." Set objWMIService = GetObject _ ("winmgmts:" & "!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") Set colFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Cim_Datafile where Name = " _ & "'c:\\scripts\\toggle_service.vbs'") For Each objFile in colFiles errResult = objFile.Rename("c:\scripts\toggle_service.old") Wscript.Echo errResult Next
  6. These are likely erroneous errors... Do an ipconfig /registerdns from the W2K3 Sp1 machine first. The description of these errors (which again, I believe are erroneous), follow: 4004 MessageId=4004 Severity=Error SymbolicName=DNS_EVENT_DS_ZONE_ENUM_FAILED The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone %1. This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone. The event data contains the error. 4005 MessageId=4005 Severity=Informational SymbolicName=DNS_EVENT_DS_ZONE_DELETE_DETECTED The DNS server received indication that zone %1 was deleted from Active Directory. Since this zone was an Active Directory zone, it has been deleted from the DNS server.
  7. You can also choose My Computer / Manage / Connect to another computer and enter the IP of the 2K machine...
  8. This type of restore can be accomplished by modifying the tombstone lifetime attribute first. The tombstone lifetime attribute is located on the enterprise-wide DS config object. The path for this attribute is: CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=COMPANY,DC=COM Use the ASDI and set the "tombstoneLifetime" to be older than the backup used to restore the Active Directory.
  9. This can happen during an upgrade if Quickbooks, Powerbuilder, Cabnetware, or Oracle for 95 are installed. If this is the case, perform the following: Quickbooks To resolve this issue, locate the Qbconv32.dll file and rename it to Qbconv32.dl_. If you find multiple copies of this file on the computer, rename each copy. Powerbuilder To resolve this issue, locate the following files and rename them to a .dl_ extension. If you find multiple copies of these files on the computer, rename each copy: Pbctl050.dll Pbstr60.dll Pbudo050.dll Pbfrm050.dll Pbdse050.dll Cabnetware To resolve this issue, locate the following files and rename them: L323d.dll rename to - L323d.dl_ L32cutes.dll rename to - L32cutes.dl_ L32cutl.dll rename to - L32cutl.dl_ L32cwv.dll rename to - L32cwv.dl_ L32dlg2.dll rename to - L32dlg2.dl_ L32estmt.dll rename to - L32estmt.dl_ L32lay.dll rename to - L32lay.dl_ L32mxs.dll rename to - L32mxs.dl_ Oracle for Windows 95 To resolve this issue, locate the following files in the orawin95 folder (by default) and rename them: NPL80.dll rename to - NPL80.dl_ NR80.dll rename to - NR80.dl_ NT80.dll rename to - NT80.dl_
  10. DLLHost.exe can be used as a surrogate host for COM servers that are exposed via DCOM/COM+. DLLHost.exe is a part of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. The dllhost.exe file manages DLL based applications. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.
  11. You will find the key EnableDHCP under each Interface listed here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces
  12. Sure.... just use the Registry Console tool from the resource kit. It is REG.EXE. It will run on W2K and WXP.
  13. Maverick.... Very nice. SimonSayz.... Sweet icon use. Freaky monkey... I gather you're a ximian fan... lol Dagonet.... Not my style, but completely solid as far as color scheme and everything... I'll post mine later on when I leave the office.
  14. To do this, you must provide a route between the clients and Active Directory server. Your clients reside on a public network, and I'm assuming your AD server resides on a private network. While this can be done, it doesn't make any sense architecturally. Why do these clients need public IP's?
  15. I meant to literally do this 'net use * /d' This command with disconnect all (*) shares, pipes, etc. that you have open. The error you keep getting is saying that you already have a connection to the resource using a different security context. For example, I am logged in as USER1 on DOMAIN1 and in this security context DOMAIN1\USER1 I have a connection to COMPUTER2. Now, from the same computer, I try to map to another share on COMPUTER2 as USER2 on DOMAIN1. This is not allowed, as I am already using the DOMAIN1\USER1 security context to attach to resources on that computer. In order to connect to COMPUTER2 as DOMAIN1\USER2, I need first to disconnect the share, or IPC$ connection to COMPUTER2 that has been established using DOMAIN1\USER1. The easiest way to do this is to type: net use * /d I hope this is more clear now
  16. To do this, you can use the network shell (netsh). Here's the information you'll need. http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...n-us/netsh.mspx
  17. I've done .this many, many times. In fact, I had one client that actually Ghosted several of their servers every single day. You can either Ghost the partition, or Ghost the disk. Of course, Ghost could care less that its RAID 5--it sees your drive array as one disk. You don't have to worry about restoring to one drive, or the other. Now, as far as fault tolerance goes, you would be better off having a spare drive to replace a failed one than relying on Ghost.
  18. Good point vanguard! I've never tried to do that on a dedicated data drive though? I thought you could only fix the MBR on the OS install drive.
  19. Been there before... I used a LiveCD Linux distro to fix everything. Use the The distro needed is knoppix. The tools within this live cd distro are qparted or partimage. Hope this helps.
  20. I'm a heavy P2P user, so I've found that it is almost impossible to use only one P2P client. For bittorrents, I use BitComet. I do tons of 2-5GB downloads on the Bittorrent network. My favorite multi-network client is Morpheus. It allows me to connect to multiple networks, and tons of peers for mega-fast downloads. I can get 700-800K download speed on here.
  21. Firefox all the way. I only use IE now when I have to (ActiveX). I bet that IE7 will be great from an interface/usability standpoint, but IE will always pick up tons of crap as you browse.

    cmd prompt

    You're running ipconfig from within Windows XP. Go to a command prompt first (cmd.exe).
  23. What kind of signature would look good with this Avatar? Any suggestions? Cheers,

  25. Yes. It runs from the command line just fine. Just modify the command to install you local printer and drivers and save it as .bat or .cmd file .
