Solved: Can't change home network properties

Q: Solved: Can't change home network properties

Just got a laptop with Vista Home and I want to install this onto my home network (MSHome) that has 5 other WinXP systems on that network. When the laptop was setup it chose a default network group called Workgroup or something like that and I cannot figure out how to get this computer navigated to the MSHome network.

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.)

I am working on someone's XP Pro SP2 Box, and I cannot change the properties of any network connection. When I right click on the connection and click properties is says "Do not have sufficient privileges, contact your administrator"

I am the Administrator, logged in as the administrator account, and the machine is not on a domain.

Any Ideas what setting could cause this, and where it is?
I wasnt even aware you could lock administrator out...

Thanks -
Mike

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, SP1, on an HP G60-120US laptop.  I have an Atheros AR5009 wireless adapter.
I have no problems with internet access.  However, in Network and Sharing Center I left click on "change adapter settings", right click on Wireless Network Connection, and then left click on Properties I get an error box that says "An unexpected error occurred."  I tried to do a clean boot using MSCONFIG but that did not work.  I tried to uncheck the "Load startup items" box but after restarting it was shaded solid again.  I then tried to check the "Diagnostic Startup" radio button and then click on "apply" but it jumps right back to selective startup.  Can you please help me clean my laptop?

change to allow use of read only files

depends what you mean by the word "use". If you just want to use them but not alter them, there's no need to change the file's properties. "Read only" just means you can't modify it.

A:Windows 7: Can't change setting System Properties > network ID setting

Hi Lewis, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The \\DOMAIN_OR_PC_NAME\USERNAME combination is not erroneous, it's how Windows keeps track of users in your network (even if said network only has one Windows PC).

For Windows, when a computer does not belong to a domain, the PC name is used instead of a domain name. I am currently typing this using a laptop with name AGM-W8LAP02 (my own naming policy, my home network is called AGM and this is Windows 8 Laptop number 02). My complete username for this user profile I am currently using on this computer is \\AGM-W8LAP02\Kari. This combination \\DOMAIN_OR_PC_NAME\USERNAME does separate my user profile Kari on this computer from user profile Kari on other computers. User \\AGM-W8LAP02\Kari is not the same user than \\AGM-W7DESK01\Kari.

For Windows it's easier and more logical to use this naming policy even if your PC would be the only one in network. If you now add computers to your network which also contain user profile Lewis, Windows does not have to change the system to be able to separate users not only from other users on the same computer but also from same users on other computers.

A:Can't change setting System Properties > network ID setting

If this machine ever belonged to a Domain then it would say that. The problem is that once you are part of a Domain you will be locked out of changing the location settings.

Domain Network: For domain networks in large corporate environments. This type of network is controlled by a network administrator and can?t be changed.

You may be able to change this by going to Winkey + R to open Run prompt and type gpedit.msc

Navigate to: Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Setting | Network List Manager Policies > Network Location tab, you may be able to change the location here but it may still be locked down by the Domain group policy.

When I first set up my network, the network name was "Network 1". I've had trouble with the modem/router that my ISP provided for me though and now my network name is "Network 6". This doesn't really matter but I would prefer to be able to change it back to Network 1. Is this possible?

Hello everyone!

A week ago I decided create a homegroup. I wanted to change network type to Home on one PC with Windows 8.1.

The issue is, when I open Network and Sharing Center and click to Work Network, it doesn't click and lettering is black there.

I tried to change network type to Public first and from this point change it to Home, by disabling Network Discovery and Common Access for files, so Network Type became Public. However, I still cannot change it's type also from Public, as lettering is black.
So I turned Network Discovery and Common Access for files back and network type automatically changed back to Work.

The question is can I switch network type to Home for that PC?

I recently received a new modem and can not change my network location without going into the registry. Every time I try and change the location through Network and Sharing Center it gives me the following error.

I have tried this thread to change it from public to work by going into the registry, but the info is incorrect as the 1 value is for work, not home.

I'll also note that when I leave a homegroup and try to change the network location to Home, it will give the same error.

Hi there, I use Wireless internet for both my pc and laptop, and connect through my BT Homehub. But whenever I open the wireless connections tab, it always shows a Talk Talk Wireless option along with the BT one which I use (and sometimes a 3rd connection that is unknown to me).
I think my network is secure, as I have to put a network key in before it will connect to the internet on the PC, but when I connect to the internet on the laptop no key is required, (so unsure a bit now) but I just wanted to make sure that the Talk Talk connection and the other one that is showing, is not somebody who can see all of the files on either my pc or laptop.
Just wanted some advice really, to make sure I dont have anybody viewing my files etc. Thank you in advance.

I formatted my hard disk on my own computer and put new motherboard and CPU in. Then I put in XP. The hardware I had in ended up as CD= D, A drive =A, Zip =C. Therefore my software went onto a drive called E. Some programs will not load on an E drive and only demand C. Can I change my E to C and my C to E?
 

A:Solved: Change OS letters in Windows XP home

Yes, you can however it is a LOT of work; and I do not recommend changing a system drive letter. One reason is that when you install an app, it installs files to its own folder along with the windows and windows/system32 folder. The app will look for those files on E when they are now on C. Since this is a new install, I would just reinstall and leave out the zip drive until you have the os installed. Having the zip drive installed while you were installing the os is what caused the drive letter problem.

If you REALLY want to try changing a system drive letter, here are the instructions.

Make a full system backup of the computer and system state.
Log on as an Administrator.
Start Regedt32.exe.
Go to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

Click MountedDevices.
On the Security menu, click Permissions.
Verify that Administrators have full control. Change this back when you are finished with these steps.
Quit Regedt32.exe, and then start Regedit.exe.
Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

Find the drive letter you want to change to (new). Look for "\DosDevices\C:".
Right-click \DosDevices\C:, and then click Rename.

Note You must use Regedit instead of Regedt32 to rename this registry key.
Rename it to an unused drive letter "\DosDevices\Z:".

This frees up drive letter C.
Find the drive letter you want changed. Look for "\DosDevices\D:".
Right-click \DosDevices\D:, and then click Rename.
Rename it to the appropriate (new) drive letter "\DosDevices\C:".
Click the value for \DosDevices\Z:, click Rename, and then name it back to "\DosDevices\D:".
Quit Regedit, and then start Regedt32.
Change the permissions back to the previous setting for Administrators (this should probably be Read Only).
Restart the computer.

You could try saving it under "Save As" and rename it with a 2 added after the File Name?

Then I think you should be able to do as you like to it? Even then overwrite the Original File later?

Edit. Just be careful that it is not a Protected Folder in Windows or in some Programs, or you can do some Damage to the System. Obviously Back up any Files before you even think about it!

Hi All I had a question in here if you're interested but no need to TCP/IP to or properties shortcut Script change read in order to answer this question in which I Script or shortcut to change TCP/IP properties outlined my difficulties in having to daily reinstall my wireless broadband card It didn't surprise me much that no one had an answer - it is after all a card network few of you would have encountered Anyway I discovered that I could get by with simply deleting the quot dial up quot connection out of quot Network Connections quot and when I inserted my card a new one would be created i e I didn't need to reinstall all the associated software That's a tolerable work-around except for one thing In order to operate VPN and also browse the net essential to get my emails I have to alter one of the default settings in the quot dial up quot connection each time it's created The path is Right-click on the connection Properties Click on 'Networking' tab Click on 'Internet Protocol TCP IP ' Click 'Properties' button Click 'Advanced' button Uncheck 'Use default gateway on remote network' Click OK three times Now this is quite a hassle as you can imagine Can anyone suggest a way this value can be found and updated directly in the registry Ideally I'd like to end up with an icon that I can double-click to make the change

A:Script or shortcut to change TCP/IP properties

I'm not sure how to do it in the registry, but if you want I could code a macro to do the job for you. All you'd need to do is double click on a program and it'd do all the work for you. However, this wouldn't be the simplest thing to program and it'd just mirror your mouse movements. You'd still need to wait for it to finish as if you did it yourself, but it would move a lot faster. This makes it more of a temporary work-around rather than a permanent solution.

A:Can't change properties to share files

And yes, file sharing has been enabled, and I forgot also to say that I I have set it so that password is not needed to share files also. How do I just get that da*$#ned locked icon to go away when I go into Share so that I can enable everyone to have access to the files?!

It is just me with a laptop and desktop both in the same homegroup, trying to simply have files accessible between the two. I have no great security needs, no big office with many computers that I need to worry about security on, etc.

However, when I do go into security settings for the C drive, and try to give full access to the administrator (me), it denies this access, runs through many files as though it is going to change the seetings, but then says I am denied access to the files and it won't complete the changeover to owner status. It's just one big nightmare. Also, when I've clicked on administrator in the drive security settings, the checkboxes for full access are checked, but they are greyed out. I can't change anything there.

thanks!

Is there a way to change the properties of a file extension? As an example: I would like "all" .txt files to be hidden.

A:Is there a way to change the properties of a file extension?

Hello Rwmol,

You could use the command below to set all .txt files on say the C: drive to be hidden. It will not hide any .txt files that are considered to be Windows 7 system files due to access denied though, but it will all other .txt files found on the C: drive.

If you like, you could substitute C with any drive letter that you would like to hide .txt files in, or substitute C:\ with the full path of a specific folder that you would like to hide all .txt files in it and it's subfolders.

File and Folder - Hide or Unhide

ATTRIB +H "C:\*.txt" /S /D


Hope this helps,

I recently purchased a dell dimension desktop off of a neighbor because they went with a laptop. I upgraded the win xp to xp pro. when I look in system properties the PC is registered to the previous owner. Not the XP software, just the PC.

How do I change the registered name on the PC so it no longer shows the previous owners name?

Thanks

A:Change The Registered Name In System Properties?

Well, you can change your name in the registry but mucking around in there is not something I think anyone highly recommends unless you know what you are doing. So doing so is at your own risk and I would make a registry backup before making any changes in there.Go to Start menu and select Run and type regeditFind and go to below key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version Change your name in following subkey :Registered Owner

Hi. I am running windows XP Home edition with SP3 (service pack 3). When ever i click on my Taskbar to view/change the date and time, i get a message(window) that says "You do not have the proper privilege level to change the system time." I only have one account on the computer and the account type is administrator. I was thinking it might be my firewall which is comodo internet security but even with that turned off i still get the same message. Please let me know if this is a minor problem that i do not have to worry about or a serious system failure/ virus or what ever else it maybe. Thank you for the help.

P.S. I have run multiple virus scans and they all come out clean.

A:cant change the properties of a file to 'open with' nothing

I am not sure if there is a simple UI for that, but you can easily do this directly in the registry.

Open regedit, open the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT key (click on it in the left pane) and scroll down to find the conf entry in the left pane, right-click on it, and delete. After you restart the machine, the file association will be gone.

Is this true or not

Can anyone help please?

A:[SOLVED] can you buy a upgrade to change from 32 bit to 64 bit vista home premium.

Well first of all you need to see if your computer is 64bit compatible. Seeing that you just got it I would think so. You said you wanna put 4"GB" of ram which 32 wont see all of.... I know that in the retail versions of Vista they usually contain a 32 and 64bit version of the OS. I also wouldn't really recommend doing an upgrade over the 32bit OS, I would just do a clean install....

I believe I know what is causing the issue, but not sure how to proceed.

I did a system restore back a week or so and it fixed it (but I reversed the restore), but Explorer.exe is giving me a 'No such interface supported error' when I right clicked on desktop and selected anything other than gadgets.

To fix that error I ran this in CMD: FOR /R C:\ %G IN (*.dll) DO "%systemroot%\system32\regsvr32.exe" /s "%G

So I believe that command did something to the properties attributes.

Is there anyway of fixing the Explorer.exe error without running that command? Or is there a way to get both things functioning without one failing?

Hi Brent and welcome to TSF !

You'll need to reinstall your video drivers before you'll be able to change the resolution.

Else you can use tab to move from an option to the other, the arrow keys to move the resolution cursor, and enter to validate (when you're on ok, or apply). Do it on another computer at the same time so you can guess where you are if you really can't see but a tiny bit of the window.

I can move it and delete it via recycle bin, but whenever I put the computer to sleep and wake it back up or reboot it, the icon reappears on the desktop, forcing me to delete it again.

The 2nd and 3rd screenshots show the folder path and the location of the icon. Notice, how it shows my name and then desktop.

Virtually every file shows read only when I right click on it and choose properties. In uncheck read only, then click apply and choose applies to all subfolders and files. Windows appears to change the properties (a window opens up and a green progress bar fills). But if I click OK and close properties, when I look at properties again, they are shown as read only again.

This happens both when I am logged in under my user name, as well as if I log in as administrator.

Are you sure that it's read only.

Keep clicking on the Read-only box to see the different options.

Hopefully the right place to ask, but I've downloaded numerous software to change the date/time, but what I want to do is change the time-stamp incrementally for a group of pictures, but not found one that does it for me.

Anyone suggest anything?

Basically I have a bunch of photos that I have named myself, but as android/IOS now orders by changed date/time, just changing all the dates/time for multiple files does not then order the files by filename.

So I want to select multiple files and change the time-stamp, but incrementing each one by a minute. Is there software that can do that?

Not sure why but when I got a windows update earlier in the week, when my laptop rebooted, all my icons had disappeared. I checked up and the icons size etc and made sure it was switched on (icon display) but nothing seems wrong. This happened on my desktop and in file explorer as well. I then thought about changing the theme to switch the icons but I can't find nor access theme chooser. Then tried to see if I could do it manually via properties but that doesn't work either! I'm at a loss to know whats gone wrong. I thought it might be related to the upgrade but uninstalled it and it remained the same. On my desktop all that is there are the names of the files/progs/ etc are there just no icon.
Help!

A:Lost icons and can't access theme change or properties!!

Hi Welcome to Windows Central! Sounds like you might need to do a in-place repair or refresh-reset. Maybe go in to Advanced Startup and try to restore to a earlier time. I'll be logging on and off all day. If you have questions I'll try to help you.

I've uploaded attachment.
Can't change black text into white.
I've tried every option under "Advanced appearance settings" but it is still black.
And also, I've checked out this link -> How to Change the Window Color and Appearance in Windows 7

Is this a third party custom theme? If so post a link to it and I will look at it and let you know.

A:How to change Start form withour using Properties on taskbar

Hello,

Have you made any recent changes to the system that may have caused this?

Did you try to run a System Restore to a point when it was working properly?

Check the policies on the system to make sure not disabled.

I noticed that when within Windows Explorer or within files Properties I could no longer see the complete date of a file, Last modified, last viewed etc. --what was missing was the year. Then I recalled having changed how the clock on the task bar displays time--which does not show the year. I wondered if this was the reason why the year was no longer visible in Explorer or within file properties. Lo and behold I was correct. Arrg! Why should one effect the other? I do not need to see what year this is on my task bar, I would hope my sanity knows this. However, I would like to know when a file was modified or what have you. Is it possible to change one (task bar clock) without effecting all else?
Thank you

A:How to change the taskbar clock without affecting the file properties

Hello Pintree,

The short date format that you set may have been to long to fit on the taskbar. If so, you may need to use a short format. You may just need to play with the format using the tutorial below for a bit to see if you find one that works better.

Hope this helps.
