I am looking for recommendations for good AV spftware that is administered from a single system to multiple workstations. We have a small windows XP/W2k network running in domain model.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Hello, just want to find where are the best proxy cache servers out there. If there are some free one let me know.
What is a good Antivirus software that is free? I have used the free trial for windows live one care. But they want $50 for me to purchase it which I think is crazy.
I haven't had antivirus program running in a while my computer still seems to be fine but probably not for a while so what is a good antivirus software to buy?
Looking for a good free antivirus software to run. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
I have used the avg antivirus for about 3 yrs now on my own computers and have had several friends/family members install it and are happy with it. www.grisoft.com. you can also download it on a link from www.download.com.

guyzzz could u give me some anti virus that doesnt free trial??????pc tool or anything good for my lappy......
Sure, my favorite is Microsoft Security Essentials.
MSE is very good for laptops, because it doesn't use much resources.
There is no need to pay for anti-virus products these days.
Another good one is Avast.

You forgot Outpost. I just updated to 7.1 free version on one of my XP machines. It now includes AV but I chose to stay with Avira so it self-disabled the AV and runs as a firewall and spam scanner. It's very much improved over the old version I had.
I'd like to hear if anyone is running Outpost with the AV and firewall on Windows 7. It doesn't get much press and is often left out of comparisons. I've been running Outpost Firewall on two XP machines since about 2007.
Hi there to any of you network Gurus -- I'm testing a Virtual version of Windows Server What I'd like to do is to set up a VPN so I can access it from another computer Windows in the LAN while testing but using a VPN rather than RDP A FREE VPN server and client is what I would like at this stage Eventually I would like to login from a mobile phone too - but later The VPN should just present a LOGIN screen to the user and then show a basic desktop with just say Office and IE installed on it I'm totally VPN and VPN AND Create (Server client) Free software good new to this sort of stuff - so SIMPLE to start with - I don't want to get into quot Remote Roaming quot Domains or any other quot Geeky stuff quot at this stage -- just the simple basics - LOGON etc Any links greatfully appreciated -- there's so many to choose from so I don't know where to start The network connectivity to the server works fine --at least with RDP so I don't have to worry at least about that bit of the system Cheers jimbo
First off, a vpn in just a virtual network connection, so it won't natively present you with a desktop or applications. It will get you remotely connected to the network, from there you will launch something else to connect to a desktop, either rdp, terminal services, etc.
Doing a VPN is natively built into sever 2012, so you won't need any software, free or otherwise to setup a.basic VPN.
I was just thinking doing downloading AVG free, Adaware SE, Spybot, and Spyblaster for protection for my clients. Why don't I store these install files this time? Then I thought why not just get WMI files of them if possible. Then I realized I'm a total noob to pushing out things and should probably ask how is the preferred method before doing it. Now I know that MS Server 2003 can push out things but I am unclear about 2 things.
1. Where should you store those WMI files you want to push out to select later?
2. If I can't get a WMI file is there a converter or should I get a third party product that can push out?
Anyone that can help would be great, right now I'm just storing the .exe files in a folder on the server. I know in theory you can do it, I just haven't done it yet with anything.
Nevermind got it but it gives an option in the form of a box instead of just installing is there a switch to auto run?
can anyone here tell me from his experiences what is the best Anti Virus software to protect a Windows 2003 Server? The server doesn't run an Microsoft Exchange Server.....this Server runs only a Microsoft SQL 2005 Server.
Running win 7 64 Ultimate, Windows Sec Essentials stopped working completely (and I am unable to turn it on at all in Safemode) computer got really slow or stops responding with anything to with Windows... started getting a popup for "Antivirus Software" that would not go away, and then internet always redirected to different sites (porn and Viagra mostly) I use Firefox... seems like anything I run (Malwarebytes, SuperAntivirus, Spybot S&D...) gets taken over and either won't run, or runs but ignores the bad stuff, OR, the omputer then shuts dow in the middle of the scan and I get a message saying that it had to shut down to prevent damage to computer, then dumps all the physical memory. Not very computer literate, and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am not able to connect to OPC server for non admin user in windows server 2003.
I get Runtime error '-536608665(e0040067)':
Failed to connect OPC server.
The system returned the following error message:
Access is denied
But i can connect non admin user to opc server in Windows xp
Is it possible for non admin user to connect OPC server in windows server 2003?
OPC server and client are on same system
Please give me your feedback
From what I've read on this thread, you'll need to set computer-wide DCOM security permissions. You'll want to peruse that thread.
On another note, this isn't really the best spot for this question. An error message isn't a crash, hang or bsod, and the situation is more relevant to specifically the Windows Server section (even though OPC servers can and often do exist in many client versions of Windows). You'll be able to receive more help there, as it's pertinent to your needs.
Alright some of you here know I am a Firefighter and I am also our IT director. Well my Chief made me the IT guy, I told him what I was going to do, I changed over from P2P to Windows Server 2003. Now he got mad at someone for locking THEIR computer in THEIR office (not his the Chief's office) and now he wants NO PASSWORDS on any computer. Not to mention I brought my OWN server from my house and spent my money buying the parts, software, and monitor for it.
I need help with gathering all the Pro's and Con's of having a Server Based vs P2P Network.......
Please help me from not wanting to quit my job.
What's to say? The thing that springs to mind is: No good deed goes unpunished.
Hi, I've been using badblue for awhile and looking for a better program for sharing word doc's etc from my computer. Maybe something with more bells and whistles, you know?
Price?, nothing more than 200 or so. Or freeware would be even better, any ideas? Thanks, Jay
if you don't mind everyone able to D/L what you send out then use kazaalite if you need a simple P2P then there is one in msn 6.0
Can anyone recommend a server. We are looking at setting up a dictation system. Three dictation stations all writing to the server. The files would all be word or word perfect and this is all it would be used for. The only thing it would really need is redundancy for security reasons. A raid system and some sort of way to back it up.
Thanks in advance,
I have a server at home. Up until last week the only way for me to gain access to it from outside the network was through a VPN connection. I decided to setup seafile on it so I can get us off dropbox. Seafile works great but I am cautious about who I share links to files with. Its behind a router based firewall, windows firewall is enabled on it as well and only the necessary ports are open. I have done some light reading into setting up SSL but have not actually done it yet. I was thinking of setting up a dedicated machine with PFsense, but that may be overkill and added complexity.
It's running Windows 8.1 right now, but I can change that if necessary.
What can I do to make sure nothing heinous happens?
The only thing you really can do is to make sure everything is patched and up to date, as many exploits come through outdated software and machines get hijacked from the most unlikely places. Firewall rules, good account names and passwords, etc. I have started to go to mildly complex user names to maybe give a small extra layer of security... instead of "admin" I would use "iroc409-Admin" or something similar. It probably doesn't help, but it might. Social engineering is a major way into a network as well, so be mindful of that.
I have a HP DL380 G4 Server that is running Virtual Server 2005.
I want to test an application on a virtual guest that uses a parralel port
dongle for software security.
The DL380 server does not have a parrallel port so I purchased a PCI based
IO card and installed it in the server. The PCO slots on the server are PCI-X.
The server is running Windows 2003 server and detected the device and I was
able to install the drivers from the cd-rom that came with the card.
Device manager on the host servers show that there is an LPT port.
However, when I go into the Virtual Server administrator and try to map that
LPT1 port to a virtual guest the port dow not appear and thus cannot be
Is anyone able to confirm that what I am doing is possible? Does virtual
server only recognize 'real' LPT ports? Any other suggestions?
I've been looking for a fast web based file server that can be hosted locally forever I'm using owncloud currently which all the features are awesome and the speed is okay but no where as fast as torrents uTP protocol. Can any recommend one that will actually transfer at my 100Mb up speed if the clients down speed can support it? Something that use udt ,fdt or anything other than tcp.
Here's what I did the other day testing with owncloud file transfer to a friend I hit a whole 16Mb speed transferring a file with that application. I then created a private torrent and gave that to him and it transferred at a speed around 50Mb which is decent considering he's not on fiber. And there's a huge difference in speed between the two applications so I am after something that can give me the transfer speed of uTP.
One thing you may want to consider before attempting to set up a local server. Read the fine print of your TOS from your ISP. Make sure that you are not subject to penalties for operating a server on your level of service. You could be in for a rude awakening otherwise.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/577008/fast-web-based-file-server/
Innovative Solutions, the company behind DriverMax and Advanced Uninstaller, have just released thier own antivirus, Orange Defender.
According to their website, it is "The best security system ever created." In reality, it is a very basic antivirus using the same UI design they use for their other products, and Avira's scan engine. As you can see from the screenhots below the UI is extremely basic. It would seem that is has no proactive protection.
You can buy it for just $15 (but I don't know why you would). The trial version if fully functional for 30 days.
Thanks for sharing @roger_m , seems like a good candidate to take out for a test drive in the malware hub.

A software to install on client machine to report to server machine if it's alive?
Preferably using web port.
Is there such a freeware??
currently in use, Teamviewer. but it'snot freeware
If I'm understanding what you're asking, you simply want to know if a machine connected to the server is turned on?
If that's the case, you shouldn't need a program; every server software I've ever worked with maintains a list of connected clients. Even if it doesn't, couldn't this function also be performed by pinging the computers?
I'm getting the following error when trying to open the app on a Win2003 R2 server:
"The feature you're trying to use is not available. Contact your systems administrator"
Any thoughts? There are no other messages associated with the error.

Make sure all admin passwords to the database are complex and long.
A lot of the burden for security rests with those applications that access the database. If the applications are buggy, then you won't have a secure database.

i would HIGHLY suggest using a linux server for this need. While offering the SMTP service you need, you will have a higher secruity and a better feeling about it not being down more than its up if you were to run windows.
Running linux server also provides you with protection(better than windows offers) from hackers, and most virus's that were made on Win32 OS's. So you wouldnt have to worry about your linux box being virused to all heck.
And, linux is FREE, and open source.
You also have the option of leaving messages on the SERVER itself and not actually downloading them.
As far as spam mail goes..there are some good ones and some bad ones.
Postini is what my local ISP uses, i have done NO research on this and quite frankly not even sure if its linux/unix compatable.
you can probably do a search on sourceforge.net or tucows com for a nice spam filtering system.
Hope this helps you ease some of whats on your mind.

A couple of questions to point you in the right direction
1. Does this only happen to your computer or are other computers in the office affected as well?
2. What web based software is it?

Please do not request assistance for corporate/company owned computers. Many changes/deletions are made during the clean up process, some of which may involve uninstalling programs, deleting folders/files, changing settings and/or removing policies etc. As we have no way of knowing for sure if these are actually needed for company operations, malware issues in these cases should be handled by your own IT Departments in order to avoid any undesirable results.

I have attempted to do this using excel with the job names down one side and the months from jantodec along top, but i cant seem to get it to filter the relevant info.Within the cells i've been typing the word "renew" where a renewal is due.
is there any easier,software i can use that will allow this? i have thought about doing it in outlook and using the diary/appointment manager but i dont think u can print off the events or the entire run from jan to december.
Any advise appreciated.thanks so much.
to my knowledge, "classic" calendar apps deal with tasks, appointments, aniveraries, and meetings, so you could mimic this creating a task as long as the contract goes and an additional appointment/meeting/aniversary for the end date to trigger the reminder event (sound, mail, message).
You may also check out a typical project management application, and add the contracts as project (milestones) or similar. They usually have a calender-like view which you can print, but I don't know if there is something like a reminder.
Maybe you can play with a tyical calendar app, such as Sunbird (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/) to find out if this type of app actually works. Or give Outlook a try if you have it already installed.
Maybe you can create a little sketch (handdraw/scan, illustration), safe this image, and provide some URL to view it so we can see what you're after?
I would just like to know whether anyone uses more than one software based firewall?
The reason I am asking this is because I have WinXP with SP2, ZoneAlarm Firewall, NAV and all other patches available, but i still get the occasional lsass.exe 60 second shutdown error message. I've scanned many times with instructions from people on this forum, but I've never managed to find a virus.
Could there be something wrong with ZoneAlarm? Should I use install another firewall to make it double secure?
Thanks for your help.
Hi all I am currently on a voluntary placement in Indonesia helping out an NGO with some I T They have a windows server with the following specs thats causing me some 2003 slow very Windows server running based grief and I was hoping you could help Specs Motherboard Gigabyte GA- I P -G CPU Intel pentium GPU Radeon MB DDR -bit HD Seagate barricuda x GB x GB PSU w XA SIMBIO RAM GB Hynix DDR PC OS Windows server Problem The problem is very slow running and slow response times The PC POSTs normally but loading of the operating system is very slow Windows 2003 based server running very slow It takes - minutes from POST to login screen Loading then takes a long time After this I can open the start menu bit it is a little slow Opening the programs sub-menu is then very very slow causing the computer to freeze Any intensive task also causes the computer to freeze for a long time before the operation is completed What I have Tried I opened the box up to check for dust Its a pretty clean machine CPU temperature is approx c according to BIOS system monitor Several reboots have of course been tried I have tried loading fail-safe defaults Task manager shows no abnormal processes or excessively high usage for any processes I have loaded msconfig and switched to minimal boot This resulted in only a minor improvement Misc The problem is complicated in that this organisation is non-profit and so I cannot simply try replacing parts until something improves My take on the specifications is that this machine should run smoothly I have the option to re-install with windows XP or with server again The machine is intended to be used as a server I was hoping to load MySQL onto it The machine was pretty much unused for a long time before I arrived All suggestions welcome thanks Kris nbsp
How about defragging the (C) hard drive and running a registry cleaner...
Linux was installed on a server; Client required Windows 7;
I uses USB key (always works) to install Win7.
Formatted it but on reboot PC hung on the word 'Grub".
You'll need to wipe the HD of all Linux code: SSD - HDD Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
Adapt these steps to get a perfect install: Reinstalling Windows 7
hey all i am just asking about a nice easy to use ftp server for windows 7 as for the ones i have tryed out are well lets say crap keep crashing or not responding or don't work how they are ment to so i fort i would give it ago see if you guys can help me out once more
yes i am searching for a good software that can pack all of my software collections into one single installation.exe pack which i can install for later usage will some pliz give me a recomendation of such software to pack all the my files into one installation pack ?
I cant think of how to explain simply.. so heres whats going on.
We built the neighbors a computer, since they had prehistoric thing.
Runs good until the little guy gets on there, clicks popups, downloads and installs stuff. I have had to reinstall windows a month or two ago, and its already locking up again with stupid crap. Not sure if its salvagable or just reinstall again.
By setting his account up as limited isnt enough. Is there any easy way to set the computer up like say.. a school computer, where you cant to anything, it erases stuff and resets when you log off?
Even if all the users are locked down, and only us with an admin password are able to install... that would be better than trying to clean up their computer every other week. Next time I go over there, i will try to d/l HJT and post a log.
So I am doing side tech work on the side with my friends and we though it'd be a good idea to get some web based Helpdesk type software to track out work load, customers, etc.
Thigs we are looking for:
Web based (SQL for the database)
Able to create tickets and have the ability to search for past ones
Create cusomter contacts for customer information and easy access to that data for returning customers
Thats the basics. Seems like there is alot out there, but wanted to see if anyone here might have suggestions before I get head deep into a crappy piece of software.
Is there a program like windows recovery only you can pick and chose files and folders to backup, like all I want to backup is some files on C, windows folder, user folder and maybe programdata folder. I do not have the space for a full 1:1 backup ><
It would also be nice if I could run all sorts of backup and full folder to folder synchronization operations(that can copy locked files) with it too.

Can anyone kindly share the software names wit me? Or do you guys have any personal expirement on it that would like to share? So please kindly post it up...thanks

Wondering if there is a way around installing software that requires Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95 or Windows 98 on my machine which has an OS of XP, SP2 Home edition.
I don't want to upgrade or downgrade.
I get an error saying that the OS must be the former.
Is there a way to bypass this?
Well there is a way if you really can't run the program any other way and you have a copy of NT 4.0 for example, you can download Virtual Machine which is M$ product that has full features available in the trial version. The program allows you to run another operating system in a window or fullscreen like any other program you would use.
And then, nevermind me also with my "eyes" noticing you already found an answer to this.

I am wondering what the consensus on Anti-Virus software is. I am currently using AVG free, and am wondering what new alternative I could pursue for my new, rather improved, computer.
I have used Norton, yet have noticed it has been called "bloatware" and "too big for its own good". With that, I am perplexed as to the best, free or not, program to remove viruses.
I used to use norton home, then I was able to get norton corporate free from the Army with free updates. I find norton corporate much better with no bloatware.

Hi guys What free Antivirus software for servers What free anti-malware would NOT be a good idea Info My friend has purchased a Poweredge server to act as a fileserver for a private network not connected to the internet He uses laptops at the most to access files on the server However at some points he will update Windows Server Server ? Free Antivirus e.g. for Server Windows 2008 plus odd bits by temporaily hooking up to the Internet and obviously leave himself open Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 to malware etc for a short time The cost Free Server Antivirus ? e.g. for Windows Server 2008 of server Antivirus is very high and usually effective for workstations upwards and obviously he would appreciate keeping costs down Questions I would appreciate thoughts on ideas for avoiding a costly solution Also if he got Malware on it e g Rootkit or Delta would current Bleeping Computer tools e g Rkill RogueKiller etc still work on the server - or does it require another approach I am asking fior advice BEFORE he gets started while options are open Thanks in advance guys
The answer is fairly simple. Just read the details on the site -
Microsoft Security Essentials is available for small businesses with up to 10 PCs.
• Microsoft Security Essentials:
Microsoft updated it’s free Anti-Virus solution at the end of 2010 to support Windows 2008/R2.
This is easily one of the better free offerings as Microsoft has updated this solution to complete directly with some of the biggest solutions, such as Mcafee and Symantec paid versions.
When downloading, simply choose Windows Vista / Windows 7, as Microsoft has yet to update the website.http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

My computer is infected. When I use google or yahoo, it always redirects me when I click on a result from a search. (One thing of difference is that the search box is cut in half, which looks strange.) I've tried running Malaware, but for some reason, it won't start up. Same goes for Malware Sweeper, Spybot, and while Adaware ran detected what I think may be the problem, it wouldn't let me delete it, even though I could delete other problems that were detected. Also, if I type the URL for any site having to do with antivirus software or advice, it won't load it. Seems like these bastards have made escape routes airtight.
I apologize if I put the post in the wrong forum or if it was posted previously. I looked at other problems, and while they said to use certain software, it almost always won't start up. Could someone help?
Hello and welcome. Please try these and let me know.Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run. ***Another work around is by not using the mouse to install it, Just use the arrow keys, tab, and enter keys.***If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run the program. If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-setup.exe so it will install on the hard drive.Manually Downloading Updates: Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/196276/browser-redirects-cannot-access-antivirus-urls-or-execute-antivirus-software/

I have a problem with certain Youtube videos where the volume is very low, even though I have system volume and all other volume sliders at max. I'm assuming the issue is with the base volume of the video itself since it's only in occasional videos. Is there some sort of program I can use to amp volume beyond that? Something that won't require I spend money on a headphone amplifier box.
Some Video Converter applications can enhance audio play back to (eg) %200, some are free and some are retail .. but Google is your friend

While in Safe Mode, navigate Start>Run>(type)"msconfig" and turn off all non-MS services and all start-ups.
Then, My Computer>(right click) "C:\" drive>"Properties">Tools and schedule a check disk (auto repair the errors) on reboot.
On reboot, you should be in what is called "Selective Startup". This should afford you maximum functionality while turning off the malware. It's a pretty good bet you are infected.
Check Device Manager, click "show hidden devices" and report any flagged devices here.
Does anyone know of a Windows software designed to remove unwanted applications from your system? I have a few apps that I cannot remove by going to ?Control Panel \ Features and Applications \ Uninstall? method. I am aware that there are 3rd party softwares that supposedly remove applications but before I go that route, I want to make sure I?m not missing an app that already resides in Windows. FYI, I am running Windows 7 (64bit) Home Premium. Any help wil be greatly appreciated!! ?.Thanks in advance!

Beginning from Windows Microsoft has begun moving towards cloud based software and making its own hardware In an interview moving based and hardware! making Microsoft towards cloud software to the Seattle Times Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer indicated that Microsoft would move away from traditional software towards cloud based software delivery model as well as Microsoft would make their own hardware Following are his related answer as well as the link quot Q Where do you see Microsoft's position in five years years A First of all I'd say pre-eminent technology Microsoft moving towards cloud based software and making hardware! company I think that in a back-looking view people would say we were a software company That's kind of how we were born Microsoft moving towards cloud based software and making hardware! I think when you look forward our core capability will be software but you'll probably think of us more as a devices-and-services company Which is a little different Microsoft moving towards cloud based software and making hardware! Software powers devices and software powers these cloud services but it's a different form of delivery Doesn't mean we have to make every device I don't want you to leap to that conclusion We'll have partners who make devices with our software in it and our services built in We're going to be a leader at that quot Ballmer trumpets Microsoft's 'epic year' Business amp Technology The Seattle Times That means a lot of drastic changes in Microsoft's policies which would impact us all As far as I can think according to my limited knowledge there would be the following changes - Microsoft would slowly strip down Windows from being a full fledged operating system to a browser based cloud based operating system just like Google's Chrome OS Xbox Not Windows Is The Future Of Microsoft - Says Steve Ballmer - Local storage based software games would be replaced by cloud based software games Microsoft has teamed up with Agawi a cloud based gaming company which has adopted Microsoft s Windows Azure cloud hosting to stream games to Windows devices as well as upcoming Xbox Agawi to use Microsoft s Windows Azure to bring cloud-gaming services to Windows VentureBeat Microsoft Agawi Team Up For Cloud Gaming On Windows Is Xbox Next - Forbes Windows gets cloud gaming with Agawi partnership - National Console Gaming Examiner com - Microsoft is planning to become a big hardware player like Apple However it would keep its OEM partners with it Divices with MS services would be sold - The biggest losers would be us The consumers Microsoft's cloud based model would put an end to our independence and we would be completely dependent on MS for everything MS won't sell us the software games etc they would rent us their software games etc - This would also be a huge loss to the enthusiasts who build their own PCs As because of all the above there would only be compact devices available everywhere and there would no longer be a place for full fledged desktop or full fledged notebook PCs So desktops and notebooks would vanish Therefore the parts to build your own PCs would no longer be available in the market All this could only change if some Linux distro successfully enters the market As Valve Steam are trying to port their games to Linux it could be a possibility Also it would be a good omen for Microsoft s OEM partners who must be desperate for an alternative to MS Windows and are fed up of MS policies
I doubt Windows will go cloud based in entirety. Unless if other competitors do that, I don't see it happening. Granted, Windows is licensed whereas android or ios isn't, but this would only happen when EVERYONE and EVERY Windows user is connected to the internet 24/7. There's that hurdle. Also, the other hurdle is how can Windows work if you're in the mountains? I find interesting that no one is thinking about Windows Phone being cloud based. I just don't see it happening. Taking the base OS and not having it natively installed on the device is like a PC with cloud based BIOS, no go and no practicality.
Office and Xbox games I do see being more cloud based. Office already is going there. Xbox games might be next.
My question I ask is where's the practicality purpose? The only thing I see is for app developers to prevent piracy, but there are better methods that don't require app streaming.
We'll see though...

Let me explain my problem first: I just renewed my avg antivirus license for another year but they upgraded to internet security 2011 from my older version. Problem is after I download the new antivirus, when I am installing it, I get a message saying cannot go on because I dont have admin priviledges. then the install program exits. HUH? I only have one way to log in and I am the administrator. I dont understand what I have to do to get my antivirus installed. PLUS, I'm unprotected now because avg uninstalled the old version before trying to install new one. ANYBODY HAVE ANY ADVICE?
See if these articles help.
On a side note - If it's possible to get a refund from AVG - I would highly recommend it. AVG had serious issues back in 2009 with computers running AVG had a critical error, known as BSOD.
Recently, more computers are becoming unable to boot when installing the latest AVG updates.
Just be aware of the issues AVG users are having. There are plenty free AV's out there too.

Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.Please be patient.

I am looking for a virus scan that does not require administrator privileges. It would need to be able to be ran without having to be installed. Would be for Windows 7 x86.
Most anti-malware scanners will work on both 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Windows.There is a list of free Scan & Disinfection Tools in this topic. Many of these tools are stand-alone applications contained within zipped files...meaning they require no installation so after extraction, they can be copied to and run from usb drives.However, a Limited User Account may reduce your ability to perform effective security scans as removing some malware requires admin rights and other user accounts may not be scanned.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/550490/non-admin-antivirus-scan-tool/
I am on a win2k avanced server that someone who is no longer around setup. Its been running and I had access to everything and I thought I had been logged in as administrator. However, I just had to reboot, logged back in as administrator but I no longer have access to any of my desktop items or programs. The only thing I seem to have access to is the "active directory users and computers" from the administator tools menu.
How can I give the administrator full access?
fixed; unique to my location.
I have Windows 7.
I noticed that all of a sudden my option to create a new file folder disappeared. After some searching, it appeared the problem was with the registry. When I went to change it, the Registry is not found.
I continued my search and realized I had a virus. No online scans work, the internet browser just closes.
I have download onto a USB and copied onto the infected computer- Norton Power Eraser, Super Spyware, Malwarebytes. They open and close immediately.
I came to this forum to get instructions on combo fix.
I tried to pull up the command line with the winkey +R and I get the message I do not have access.
Can someone please help me?

I manage AD and 30+ servers at a community college. I just got a new computer for my office and loaded Windows 7. I also loaded the Remote Server Admin Tools so that I may manage my servers. The old Windows XP Admin Tools had a tool called IP Address Management. This tool combined DNS, DHCP, and WINS management all in the same window and the DHCP would keep the server setups on exit. I can't find this tool in the RS Admin Tools for Windows 7. Does anyone know where I can get a tool like this for Windows 7?
I've heard good things about RackTables... I think it's the sort of thing you're looking for...

We currently have an email forwarding service to our Exchange Server. They handle the spam/virus et al protection before it hits our server. We're looking to consolidate all our connection services/web hosting etc.
My question: Is there anything we need to consider in terms of managing our email in-house via basic DNS forwarding vs a managed service? Is it a complicated process if we already have SBS 2003? Am I freaking out unnecessarily?
We have a Windows 2000 Domain spread across 3 buildings. I was wondering if anything would be affected by changing the administrator password for them?
Friends most of the tutorials amp helps I see for quot sharing quot between and XP are just that setting up a simple share on xp that can be used by other LAN users That's not what I need or want I'm setting up an XP Pro SP system as a server] on admin local Authenticate as a XP [as server and I want to be able to access virtually everything on that XP system - old files folders as well as new ones I am creating Simple sharing of quot Share quot is working fine but that's just the start I think this is Authenticate as a local admin on XP [as server] the right question but I may be mistaken Authenticate as a local admin on XP [as server] I want to authenticate across the LAN to the XP server as a local user with administrative rights in other words pass the credentials over so I am logged into that system as a local user Authenticate as a local admin on XP [as server] I do not care about remote-desktop per se that is passing the bit maps across the wire taking control of the functions - just simply having the permissions of the local I have tried going folder-by-folder on the xp system and setting each one I will need access to as shared but that approach seems to be the very thing that entangles so many users resulting in a million threads being posted on the subject When I follow the myriad quot fixes quot that are out there what I get is the ability to see the folders readily shown on the 'other end' when browsing the LAN but trying to access those folders and use them is denied help pls
Have you solved this yet.
Have you tried connecting to the admin share?

I currently have Norton Internet Security and my subscription has expired. I have repeatedly read that I should only be using Norton Antivirus and not their firewall software because its a resource hog. I am running windows XP Home Ed and have Toshiba Satellite P4 2.8 512 RAM. What is the best Antivirus / Firewall Software or combination of software to use on my computer.
I would like to do a complete scan on my system also because I have recently had 2 blue screens lately. What steps should I use to completely check my system. The only programs that I have recently installed is the software for a brother multifunction and something for the Belkin Pre-N router.
Hi, and welcome..
Run two online virus scans..
Norton Anti virus and firewall are a resourse hog..
Avg or Avast would be better.. Sygate personal offer a good Firewall..
We have several Win 2000 servers tied into a domain. What I want to do is make a local admin only account on one of the servers, but when you make an account it's automatically domain admin.
Any ideas on how to do this?
Hello weeplelations! I'm having trouble using the SMS 2003 Admin console with Vista. The Admin console works perfectly for about a day or two. After that, when I click on 'Collections', nothing appears. I need to use Vista because we are going to be deploying and supporting it this summer, but if I can't see the computers in Collections to connect to them, I'll have to go back to XP. Any patches or fixes out there? Is it something that needs to be done on the server side? Ayudenme por favor!
Hi, A friend has installed Windows 2003 and when the computer boots he is prompted to hold down the Control+Alt+Delete as a security feature before entering The Log On password. I would like to know if a password was not set upon installation if the prompt would still appear ? Also I would like to know if this feature can be bypassed somewhere in the settings.
I have lost my admin password for my NT Server 4.0 test machine that I have at home. IS there any way to resolve this issue? I don't care about the data any way. I would like to clean the entire machine for a fresh installation.
Actually, I wanted to install Linux Red hat 7.3 on that box, and totally get rid of the NT server, so I inserted the LINUX CD at boot time to over write the NT but for a reason, it skips the the Linux CD. The window just pops up requesting me to enter the ADMINISTRATOR password.
I even inserted the NT server CD at boot time to try to over write the original installation so that I can continue with my linux installation but it skiped that CD as well.
Any suggestion is welcomed. I don't need any thing that box anyway so I don't have a problem wiping it clean
use a bootdisk, download it at www.bootdisk.com
I have a client that purchased a repossesed Dell PowerEdge server. They have NO disks, or NO passwords that work. I have tried a linux boot disk that is supposed to be able to reset the admin password, but because of the raid controller it doesn't recognize any NTSF partitions. Anyone have any ideas how I can get this system unlocked. Boots up really nice, but then I"m stuck at the login screen.
I'm currently using a real bad (IMO) Rogers Online Protection AV, anti-spyware, and firewall combo thing.
I recently had a virus, so we bought Norton's internet Security 2010. I assume it would work much better than the one I have now.
However, I'm a PC gamer and I hear Norton is a resource hog.
Anyone recommend something that can match up to Norton (or almost) but won't be wasting my CPU away?
If you're looking for a paid application. Kaspersky has a game mode you can toggle. You can usually find some deals on it for 3 licenses such as: Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010, 3-User from Walmart.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/317065/what-antivirus-is-good/
i would be great if anyone herein can share with me a good ant-virus to get my system protected.
thanks being kind.
Try either avast! antivirus Home Edition or Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus.
It is free for home use. It is so good that even if you haven't scanned your computer for a while it will find the virus anyway. It just keeps sending you a message "virus data base has been updated". And then when it has found the virus, it will ask you if you want to delete it completely or put it in the recyling bin. I think that we will all want to delete it completely.
Now thats a real good one ...i should download it twice just for more popups................
