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.)

OK there is a catch here you know how the printers after 20 min of no using them is going in stand by mode ... for some reason the network card is going in standby mode for the printer also if you try to print over the network you gonna see that the printer is going back visible.
Solution: There was a option in Network Monitor Devices for don't going on that "standby mode" check and see if this will help you.

A:Windows XP Home "My Network Places" refusing to show network computers

You need to look at the dependency list for each service. In the case of Computer Browser, it's Workstation and Server.

Since Workstation is failing, that's probably the place to start.

Do you have WKSSVC.DLL in C:\Windows\system32? That's the workstation service, and it appears to be the missing module. I'd first try copying that from the installation disk, if it's missing, and then register it too by:

Start, Run, regsvr32 wkssvc.dll

If you can't find the DLL, you can run sfc /scannow to restore missing files.

A shortcut may be to download the file from DLL Dump and register it as described above.

Hi,

I'm running Windows XP Pro. I'm not sure if this is possible, but is there a way to combine the contents of "My Computer" and "My Network Places" into one icon? I know how to remove either icon (via TweakUI), but is it possible to, for example, have all of the links in "My Network Places" appear in "My Computer" or vice versa?

I would like to know why the MY NETWORK PLACES link is in the start menu on some computers and not on others?

I always assumed once you created a small home/office network it would show up.... I do not think this is the case since I have a pc on my network that lacks this shortcut.

That same pc is giving me error reports SPOOLER SUBSYSTEM APP.... blah blah blah...

To top it off, that same pc is not accessible by my other computers on the network.

the "problem pc" can be seen but not accessed
the "problem pc" cannot see any other pc on the network.
all other connections on the network are visable and working.


any help would be greatly appreciated

Tried everything I can think of... cancelling and resetting the folder to share, adding another folder..., nothing.

TerryNet once pointed out to me that there were two ways of looking at Network Places- "Task View" and "Folder View." How do you go about choosing between them?

Attached is a screen shot of the Network Places Tool Bar (sp??). I can't find anywhere a way of changing the 'view'. How is it done??

I added a "Network Place" to my (web site hosting) web drive.

I logged in once and now it saved the credentials. So now I access my web site folders through the icon that was created in Network Places.

So is this secure? Can someone use my profile (or my computer) to find my username/password? Is it at least encrypted? Where is it stored? The registry?

According to the error message, I assume that the spooler service cannot find out the printer on the network.

Hi all

I'm hoping this is an easy fix.

There is a pc at work that needs a dialup connection set up. Its a fairly new pc and has XP pro installed on it (SP2 I think).

If I click start>settings>network connections and click on the "new connection wizard", I cannot get further than the screen shot I've attached in this thread. I don't think its group policy as the "next" button is not greyed out and the wizard works fine on other computers. In the screen shot attached, if I click "next", the button simply goes in (depresses) and pops out again. Nothing happens. I cannot get anu further.

Things I've tried:

Rebooting
Logging on as the local admin.

So far no joy.
Any ideas?

My guess is its some dll's that need reregistering?

Has anyone seen this before?

Hi folks. This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you. Not sure if that matters.

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled. When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before. After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public". I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated". What does this mean and how can I fix this? How did this happen? Thanks.

A:Network shows as "Unauthenticated"....Changed my network profile to "Public"

How many DCs are there in the domain?
I suggest that you remove the Windows 7 computer from the AD, and exit the Windows 7 computer from domain. Then, re-join the computer to the domain. How does it work now?
If the issue persists, please temporary disable the firewall on both computers. Also, please check if Network Location Awareness service is enabled on the server and Windows 7 computers.Arthur Xie - MSFT

A:Small network issues. Wired-has internet, can't "see" other computers

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Have you already tried a Power Cycle?

If that didn't help at all, take a snap shot of the Mac Filtering page, paste it on to MS Word or Wordpad and save it, then Disable Mac filtering for now. Test your internet connectivity after. If all goes well, then you may do the Mac filtering again.

Still No-Go, proceed to update your router's firmware. You may download the firmware from the Manufacturer's site.

An udate will be appreciated.

Hello to everyone,

It has been a long while now since I started troubleshooting this issue, but I have not been able to solve it at all.
The problem is I have a network with Windows Server 2003 and around 20 workstations connected, all of them sharing files and resourses smoothly, without any inconvenients (all of them with XP or 7).

BUT, there is one XP station that suddenly disconnects from the network. With this I mean I cannot "see" the computer in the network from my Win7 computer (in fact I do not get to see it from any other computer including the server). I have a network
drive mounted that accesses a folder in this XP station and it works for a while and then also stops working.
Finally, if I ping this station it works.
Hope you can help me out.

Regards.

Hi All,

I use a Sony printer for my work as a photographer. The printer uses scsi connection. I have an adapter which converts the scsi to usb,

Anyway.....

When i try to install the printer it automatically says "found new hardware - SONY UPDr100 SCSI Printer" this is what i want to install but instead, its changes to say "found new hardware - generic printer" and installs it as the "generic printer".

On the device manager, the generic printer appears under the scsi and ieee1394 heading.

i have tried to disable the generic option and reinstall the printer but it doesnt work.

I just wondered if there's any way to stop the Add Hardware Wizard automatically installing the printer as a generic so i can install the sony drivers.

can anyone help?

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

When I do a continuous ping to the printer (approximately 100, I had 4 request time outs). The 4/5 clients using the printer are having problems printing to it. I'm sure that request time outs are the problems behind this.

A:Network Printer "not found on server" Daily...

Hi, you said, "These are Dell printers 1815's running on Dell Optiplex 320, XP Pro SP 2." If that is the case, you need to do a local install and share the printers.

Basically, if the printer is directly connected to a PC with a USB or LPT cable, then I would be surprised that a remote install with IP address even works.

If the printer is connected directly to the network with a network cable only, then you may have bad network cables or may need to change the port on the switch/hub.

With the information I have, this would be the first things I would check.

I installed a new printer (HP deskjet 6500 series) on one of the networked computers in our office yesterday and set it up as a shared printer. Ever since then, said computer cannot connect to the network ("network cable unplugged" error). Prior to installing the new printer, everything was working fine. I have tried rebooting the computer, uninstalling & unplugging the printer & restarting, unplugging the network cable and restarting & then plugging back in, and rebooting our entire network. Nothing so far has worked. I'm thinking about using system restore to revert the computer to the way it was prior to installing the printer. But, I've never used system restore before, so I'm a little wary. Anyone have any tips regarding that or other reasons for this problem? Thanks!

If a printer says it is "network ready" I am assuming that it has a 10/100 ethernet port on the back (think I saw that stated also). Does this mean that the printer plugs directly to the router and the computer does not have to be on for other computers to print to it?

That sounds funny but you know what I mean. (I hope)

I am seriously thinking of trying to buy one - I seem to be doomed trying to set my dot matrix up with my bluetake adapter via bluetooth. :s For the price I paid for the adapter I've never been able to get it to work easily.

Once in a while Windows suddently cannot connect to the net. I can then see that the latest restore point only differ from the current Windows in regards to one driver:
"Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (Printer) 06/21/2006 6.1.7601.17514"
I can only connect to the net again by restoring to the latest restore point.
How do I prevent Windows from getting this old driver?
I have reinstalled my pc totally from the "fabric-image", Windows Update has installed everything and my printer driver and network driver is up to date.

Was working about a week ago, now "my network places" is blank. I can ping all other netwrk computers by ip and name. I ran network setup, no change. Work group is the same. Tried turning off Windows firewall, no change. Also using MSE. Nothing has changed as far as I know on this computer.

Thanks for the help.

I have three computers. Two run Vista Home premium 32bit, and one is running win xp. I've got a wireless network running on a netgear wireless N router. They all are successfully able to access the internet, and the shared printer, but I can't seem to get them to show up as computers with drives that are shared via the network. I've done a network before, (wired), and was able to see each computer on the network, as well as access any of the drives I had set a share-able. No matter what I try with these three, I've not been successful. Help?

A:Not able to "see" other computers on network.

Have you checked your firewalls to make sure they are allowing access ?

I have chosen "my company uses a network without a domain" for all the computers from the network identification wizard. Could you pls suggest a proper way of configuration for this setup.

So I recently installed Windows 7 x64, and suddenly my wireless connection is no longer working. It worked fine with the previous Vista 64-bit OS. I'm able to connect to a different router, and the internet works fine. However, I cannot connect to my Home router. Other laptops are able to connect to it just fine (running the Windows 7 OS).

I updated the network adapter drivers, reset the router and modem, don't have the Bonjour service at all, updated everything Microsoft had for me, and tried that spoofing Network Address solution. When I try to ipconfig /renew, it freezes and eventually says "DHCP could not be reached" or something along those lines.

After all this it still doesn't work, and I still get the "169" IP address when I ipconfig.

The router is Linksys WRT54GS. My wireless network adapter is Atheros AR9281.

Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome

the 169.254.x.x. ip is local to the card so something in either the driver or card is hosed. can you type device manager in search? go to the wifi/lan (network) tab and tell us if the driver is listed, and working. Is there a yellow triangle on it? is there any other "unknown" devices with yellow on them?

Hi,

I'm running a Win XP SP2 machine, a couple of days ago the Network Icons in the taskbar dissapeared. Also, I cannot get into Network Connections to check the connections. The folder is empty.

However, the all the connections work fine, I just cannot edit them or get any details... Cause they're nowhere to be found.

I browsed around the net and found that for this type of problems one needs to check if certain services such as "Network Connections" and "Telephony" are running. I checked, and they are all stuck in "Starting" status. And nothing I can get them to start.

I checked the chain of dependencies and the service they all depend on "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" is started and running.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks guys!

Hi Lori,

This issue usually occurs on wireless network connections. I suggest that you turn off any security feature of wireless. Please click Start->Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, right click on the wireless adapter and select Properties. From there choose Wireless Networks, click on your wireless network name and choose properties. Under Network Authentication choose Open to turn off the wireless security. Please try to connect.

If the issue persists, I suggest that you delete the connection, and recreate the wireless network connections. The following website may help you on creating the wireless connection.

http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-setup-a-wireless-connection

Important Note: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information.

Is the issue resolved?

If the issue persists, I suggest that you reinstall the wireless adapter driver, and re-create the connection again.

Remove the adapter driver========================

1. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter.2. Expand "Network Adapters", double-click on the entry of the wireless network device.3. Click the tab "Driver", click "Uninstall".4. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter. 5. Remove the entries related to the wireless network adapter.

Then reinstall the driver with your driver CD. After installing, re-create the connection.

If the issue is not resolve by the above suggestions, please let me know if other computers can connect to this wireless network.

Did a quick search but could not find an answer...
Earlier this week, my wife found four unknown computers in the local network located in my network places.
We have a broadband internet connection but there is no router and there should not be any other computers linked to mine. The computers we found are all labeled "ShareDocs" and the a computer name like "blank family computer". My questions are...

How did this happen (my broadband company or possibly a file sharing program?)
How much risk am i at
How do i stop this and prevent this from happening again.

I'm running XP home w/ SP 2. I am using zonealarm for a firewall and have very strict settings.

Thanks for taking a look,
Jeremy

We have 4 desktop systems namely A, B, C & D under work group by name "MSHOME". While we could access three systems namely A,B & C thro network places, last system D could not be accessed from all the three namely A, B & C. Similarly from system "D" we could not access other systems A,B & C. While viewing work group computers option, it is showing all 4 systems. Can you help me out
 

A:workgroup computers not showing in network places.

Assuming that you have enabled file and printer sharing on "D" the problem is likely a firewall on "D" blocking the desired access.

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.

Hi, when I type in my address in I.E./Windows Explorer I can see the folder that I shared on the lan but I also get two extra folders "Printers and Faxes" and "Scheduled Tasks". How do I get rid of them?

Also, is it possible to limit users to download 1 file at a time from me?

i don't know if i am missing something or it is a bug on w10.
i click "add new bluetooth device" and then i can pair a lumia, ok. i can see my phone in "join personal area network" window.
if i try to pair the phone from "join personal area network" window i can see it in bluetooth devices list but not in "join personal area network" window.
so... it is a bug?! did i make anything wrong?! what is the difference between "add new bluetooth device" and "join personal area network" on w10?! what is "join personal area network" used for?!
thanks

A:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

The control panel opens fine. I can access all items in the control panel
except "Network and sharing center" and the "User accounts" (I can't access this sections via the taskbar either).

What happens when I open one of the two items is I get a popup saying the
following; WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING.

I used to be able to access these items. And one day, I just coulodn't anymore...

Anyone knows how to solve this? Thanks.

Hello Newbie,

See if running a sfc /scannow can find and fix bad system files that may be responsible for this.

Hope this helps,

A:Can't access "Network and Sharing Center" nor "User Accounts"

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi all
just a tip if you are installing as a vm on vmware.

Select W7 as the operating system and choose I WILL INSTALL THE OS LATER.

Don't use the easy create guest OS wizard in this case.

If you don't do this the install will fail with Unable to read product key from setup xml script.

Create the VM with just the disk and then BOOT from the ISO when powering on the newly created VM.

The process is then pretty much the same as for W7 and you won't get asked for a product key.

Cheers
jimbo

Hello Jorge, This is a problem only when the profile is set to public? You might go into network and sharing center>advanced sharing settings and change those to discover the network and turn on file/printer sharing
