  1. If you ever want to flawlessly set something like this up you will have to pay to bring someone in to do it for you. Also Impero is an excellent program to use in a school network. This program is everything that an admin could wish for. Tnx 4 bringing it to my attention. But for our needs in school the Microsoft Shared Toolkit does a great job.
  2. The internet corner is a huge success. The computers are working without any administration and everybody has access to them. It's been 4days now and not a single problem has happened on those computers. MS Shared Computer Toolkit really does do a good job. I highly recommend it.
  3. thx 4 your advice. I wonder how come I didn't thought about it. Will try it when I get home.
  4. Yesterday I was preparing the server for installation of SP2. First I cleaned the unnecesary junk and then I created a backup of the root partition with Acronis TI. Today I started installing SP2 thru Microsoft Update. But after SP2 gets downloaded the installation errors out. Here are some of the logs: Windows Server 2003 Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (32-bit x86) 21. marec 2007 Microsoft Update Windows Server 2003 Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (32-bit x86) 21. marec 2007 Microsoft Update Event Type: Error Event Source: NtServicePack Event Category: None Event ID: 4374 Date: 21.3.2007 Time: 14:34:52 User: SERVER\tom Computer: SERVER Description: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 installation failed, leaving Windows Server 2003 partially updated.

  5. Shared Computer Toolkit works quite good but Windows Disk Protection won't work. I opened a thread about it here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=94631 Hopefully a solution will be found soon
  6. Found this prog: Shared Computer Toolkit I believe this will be of great help. Trying it now. Our school WILL NOT pay for any thrid party programs and piracy we will not do. And also I believe WinXP is capable of the things I've written but I just don't know how to set them.
  7. I read the file U have given me but I am still no closer to finding a solution. I've created a new user account and assigned it the GUEST group. 1.This user is still able to uninstall programs thru ADD/REMOVE in Control Panel . How do I disable this? 2.When this user lunches Windows Explorer I wish the C and D partitions were hidden so he would only have access to My Documents and removable drives (cdroms, usb keys...), how do I do this? 3.How do I disable Task Manager and Right-Click on the Desktop, disable lunching control panel, or changing the start menu items, disable changing the resolution and adjusting the volume... Where do I set these setting? Thank U in advance
  8. Actually our so called administrator know very little about PCs. So I usually help him out. I do not even know how he got the job. But now he is old and waiting to go to pension... That I know, but I have heard that the is a program that I must launch prior to cloning the machine because there is a unique address written in WinXP and this would do havoc if I would put the clone to another PC. THe program I believe is called SYSPREP or something similar. Where in GPEDIT.MSC are those settings? I2 don't want any extra third party stuff.
  9. I am setting an internet corner in our school which will contain 4 identical computers.They will have 2 user accounts without any priviligies. The only difference between these 2 accounts will be the resolution. Since some of our students are handicapped. And this is what I would need to do: 1. On every reboot the C partition should be restored. Thinking DEEPFREZE??? 2. I will clone the WinXP computers with ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE. As I understand there is a program I must first run that will take care of issues such as MAC address and a unique PC number. Which program is this? My primary concern about this PCs will be security. Since these PCs will not be monitored and students will have free access on them they must be 100% secure and they must not be allowed to turn off Antivirus, install any software, ... So any other infos/help from U will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Tomi
  10. The thing is that this login "pause" sometimes happens after the user is being logged in and sometimes B4 the user even has a chance to login in. So I should dump the memory after 1.5 minutes after the system has loaded to the desktop or 1.5minutes between the login delay?
  11. CLUBERTI About your memory dump I will do it next week when I get back here to this computer. This happens every time I reboot the machine with or w/o the network cable plugged in. I attach 2 screenies of my services ordered by status. I hope we will be able to solve this ASAP
  12. I attach the complete debug log file: userenv.zip
  13. I've enabled verbose login. And when the delay occurs this are the two messages I usually get but not always: active directory is starting isn't this weird for a Win2k PRO OS? Configuring security policy to the system Tried it and still had the login delay My information was missguided, because at times the delay happens B4 the user starts to login and at other times the delay occurs after user is being logged in. All the services marked AUTOMATIC do start. Also checked MSCONFIG and found no stange things.
  14. I believe this util is only for WinXP. About the rest I will give it a try on sunday
  15. Pensionada Do U have the same problem or did U try to write something to the thread?
  16. At home we have 4client computers connected to a Win2k3 server. 2clients use WinXP 2clients use Linux The WinXP client computers can't access certain files on the server which have special characters(chinese) in the name. But the Linux client computers have no problem accessing files with special characters in them. So how must I set the WinXP clients?
  17. This PC has Win2k with all of the available updates. And also it is set to have auto user login. Since only one user is using this PCs. But from the moment that the user is being logged on it takes 3min to get to the desktop. And in the meantime the HDD is doing almost nothing. This computer is not part of any network. It only has a NIC to connect to ADSL. Thus far I have tried the following but the problem still persist: disabled the NETWORKING SERVICE and also the NIC Disabled as much unneded services as possible Set the NIC IP to static ps. This delayed login only happens when I first boot windows. If I log out of the user accoung and then relogin there is no delay. I also checked the EVENT VIEWER and this is what I get at every boot up: Event Type: Error Event Source: NetBT Event Category: None Event ID: 4311 Date: 10.2.2007 Time: 11:13:45 User: N/A Computer: SERVER Description: Initialization failed because the driver device could not be created.

  18. have created a thread in the wrong forum, sry. DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!DELETE ME!!!
  19. MCTavish I read thru your link and as promising as it sounds it wouldn't suffice because it only does that for USB drives. But I would need the 'D' letter assigned to network drive even when installing a new virtual drive(ALCOHOL 120%). Sure I can change it later but it is still a pain. Thus far I have set the network drive to Z. Hopefully an answer to this will come
  20. So apperantly my only option is reinstall. So B4 I start deleting Windows, Docs&Settings, Program Files, and C:\* from LINUX are there any settings I can save so I wouldn't need to set all the programs back to the way I want them?
  21. By reloading the system U mean doing a clean reinstall of it, correct?
  22. Im moving from AMD SOCKET A to AMD SOCKET 754 and NFORCE 2 to NFROCE 3. My major concern is SPEED! Since I'm using Windows only for some 3D gaming for the rest I use linux. CYGNUS So the only option to have a fast system is to do another reinstall? Isn't there a REGISTRY KEY-ENUM which U delete and then restart the computer and Winblows will ask U again to reinstall all your drivers?? ALLEN2 Would SYSPREP help with the speed of the new Windows?
  23. I will be getting a new mobo and CPU 3days from now. Meaning I will need new drivers for CPU, SOUND, LAN, chipset. The rest of the system (burner, hdd, gpu, ram) will stay the same. Is it possible to not do a new fresh install and still have a lean mean fighting Winblows and how?
  24. thought so! anyways, tnx for your. wish U a lovely day
