I don't see a Policies tab in hardware properties for any drives

Q: I don't see a Policies tab in hardware properties for any drives

We recently got a new Dell desktop with Windows 7 and I discovered today there's no Policies tab in the hardware properties dialog for any of the drives, local or removable. In XP and Vista the path is, Right-click a drive>Properties>Hardware>Properties>Policies. Should it be there or does 7 have a different way of handling it? I'm logged in as administrator and have ownership of one of the removable drives I've been working on. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: I don't see a Policies tab in hardware properties for any drives

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 don't see that tab in Windows 8 either, if that helps.

Hi,

From yesterday I am facing a strange problem : I am getting a error whenever taking "Properties" of any drive. Right Click to any drive -> properties.

It's showing "The properties for this item are not available".

Please advise.

A:Error getting properties of drives

Did you do anything significant just before this happened (downloaded Win Updates, updated drivers, etc)?
Is your system running normally otherwise?
Have you tried running a full malware scan just to make sure you are clean?

We haven't loaded anything, it just appeared: PCI bus 26, device 4, function 0There are two of them (both the same) under Other devices in the control panel. Computer wants to find and download drivers for them. Is this potentially harmful? Could it be spyware/malware? We have young children that like to play games on the computer.

A:computer has new hardware, all properties are unknown

Have you changed some hardware of the computer yourself, or is it only shown in the device manager out of the blue?

I have aquired a HP Laptop that the Ethernet appears to be defective. It shows up as This Device Cannot Start (Code 10). I did a complete reinstall because it was using Windows 7 (was purchased by the owner) and I figured it was a driver issue. The original (and now current) OS is Windows Vista and the same thing shows.

I was looking in the properties of the Ethernet card for the vendor ID to make sure I got the correct driver (website has different make drivers) and saw there was a listing that says Problem Code with a value of 000000A -- I was wondering if this is the same like a STOP code or if there is a website with these codes? I have a screenshot of an example.

I'm pretty sure the Ethernet card is toast, I just wanted to make sure.
 

A:Error code listed in hardware properties

pretty sure that the problem code 00000016 represents some driver issue, but that's going of a total of three instances, so consider that......

starting to agree that the card is cooked, however.

Hiya...

I have two hard drives C, and D. When I open either of these drives right click on a folder and select properties nothing happens at all. When I go to properties of the C or D drives themself, nothing happen.

When I go to the properties of a network computer, any file with an extension, shortcuts etc.. the properties come up.

Whats going on?

Thanks in advance

Hello all,

I am attempting to swap out a cd-rom from my d: drive and replace it with a combo dvd-rw/cd/rw - The cd-rom is currently in the secondary master position which is where I want the new hardward to end up. What all do I have to disable and change over in windows 98SE to accomplish this? Also, on the back of the dvd-rw there is an audio chord slot, a master/slave cable slot, and the power cable slot, but also two small slots (one 4 pronged, and one two pronged for chord/cable attachments. Can anybody tell me what the other two are for? Thank you very much!

My desktop PC died after an accident a couple of months ago and I have very nearly finished building a new one, however, I want to retrieve what data I can off the 4 hard drives.

I had a dual boot setup with XP and 7 Pro 64 bit running and wanted to know whether I would be able to get them running in an entirely new PC at least long enough that I can remove anything of importance.

Or if anyone know a way to access data from user accounts on them without running both the versions of Windows installed on them that would also do.

A:Updated all hardware apart from hard drives

What I normally do is I will pull the hard drives out, and my primary windows hard drive(the one i do everything on) will be set as boot in the BIOS, and windows should read the rest of the harddrives as regular space and you should still have access to all of your files just by going to My computer.

Hope this helps.

Hey people I just reinstalled vista and the only difference to my machine is a 8600GTS graphics card (used to be a 7800GT) but this time around for some unknown reason I can see all my drives in the safetely remove hardware list (I dont want them in there).

They were not showing before (previous installs) and I also notice that the windows update has a history that is telling me that the nvidia raid updates have failed and if I try them again it fails repeatedly.

So how do I go about making sure my drivers are all correct and removing the raid config and my other drives from the above mentioned list (picture attached below) ? ? ?

Hi guys,

After a fresh format of windows XP (with SP2) i noticed this and it concerns me...

How on earth is it safe for me to remove the hard-drive my OS is installed on alone the rest of them??

Also, whenever i right-click on a folder's properties for some reason all the folders on all the drives have "write protection" enabled, even if i disable it, once i click on "OK" and then go back into the folders properties write protection is enabled again....
Any help would be great, cheers guys!

GX280 2.8 Ghx, 1024 MB ram, XP Pro and pretty stock.....

I want to take the two hard drives (one boot one 2nd), video, TV and WiFi cards from the GX260 and swap it into the faster GX280 machine. Both these machines have XP product codes on the case from Dell and both are up and running.

CAN I DO THIS, with out grief. I know I can strip the GX260 and remove the hardware (except the boot drive), re-install them all in the other machine, then load programs and drivers..... Yuck!

If you think it's a bad idea tell me if you have a game plan for doing the swap in an orderly way.

A:Problems booting windows after major hardware change (IDE drives not recognized)

you must reinstall windows on the new setup from scratch. Any major hardware changes will require this. Windows configures itself and is registered to the mobo and components. Also windows is licensed for only one system at a time.

A BIOS beep is indicative of hardware failure or incompatibility. Read my guide here: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic95391.html

To retrieve data you will need to use your drive in another system as an external device. Use a usb to IDE adapter.

hi all-

i have somewhat of an annoying problem that i was hoping the experts out there can help me with. i have a sandisk cruzer mini usb device (512mb) that i have been using for about a year without difficulty, and unfortunately my computer no longer brings it up as a drive (along with my hard disk) when it is plugged in, even though it plugs and plays fine on another computer and on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the lower right hand corner it is said to be working properly. i think this is probably some software issue as my computer is also not able to recognize a second usb drive.

i am running windows xp2 and had recently reinstalled secondary to other problems....but this was an unexpected gift, if you will

Well, I probably look at your power supply since you have not replaced that. It could be providing dirty power causing the other components to fail.

However, its also affected my admin side as well. Is there a way to have the policies jsut enforced to the specified user or group? I know about group policies, but i have not done them locally on 1 machine, to affect one user. I've only done them via domain structure.

Would i basically create a group on the local machine, add the user, and apply the policies to that group? If so, from where do i apply these settings to a group?

I have setup an OU group policy and placed the users and the computers i want this policy applied to in this group...
I have also ticked the box block inheritance....still no joy

I have AD and DNS running , also NAT and DHCP

If i rember correctly i think i had the domain default policy working on the pc's as i deployed some software using that policy to them.

But surely this policy the OU one should be applied as well especially since it is meant to be overiding the default one.....

1. Over-ride local users so they are subject to group policies even when not connected to the domain (ie log on with cached domain settings)
2. Transfer existing MyDocs etc for local users into new MyDocs that relate to new user account on domain

without having to do this manually on each laptop.

Any suggestions would be very welome.

1. If you use cached logins it should still use the domain policy when log in to the domain account when not on the network. Read this post about how to harden the security of this.: http://securityfocus.com/archive/88/388879...22/2005-01-28/22. Your best bet is to extend the login script to move the files to the new my documents for the domain profile.

A:XP User Policies

It looks to me there is a group policy under the the container/object your account is located.

Now it could be set as the domain group policy, or just under your container/object.

So they have exluded MMC from the c prompt and have disabled in IE the changing of IE settings.

They either need to move you to a container that does not inherit settings or to a container without the GPO.

You can check you local policies, if you can access the admin tools in control panel, but I do not remember being able to setup stuff like that as a local policy.

I was wondering if I could set up accounts to limit the users freedom to change system settings on one account and not the others. For example, you couldn't see the control panel in the "all" account, but you could in the "Admin" account. I know that you can download third party software, such as FreshUI, and you can impliment group policies, but I'm working with a couple of donated computers from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and they have the accounts set up exactly the way I want them, without any policies, or third party software. If it's a matter of getting into the security features, or registry, no problem, but I would like to learn how it is done.

Thanks

The one account is for pc management and my Dad to use, so it needs everything enabled (account is an administrator).
The second account is for visitors to use, so I wish to disable many features in Windows to prevent people messing about with the machine (normal user account).

I've tried the group policy editor, but this works at a computer level, not at a user level as far as I can tell, and thus both accounts are affected.

Is there any sort of user level tool I can use like the group policy editor, to lock down the visitor account only?

Well first thing you do is create a standard user. then use parental controls to limit, then if you need modify policy edit to lock it down still further by limiting std user group

A:Policies to prevent this installation

Hello,Now that you have posted a log, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. 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 Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the 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.Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

I am running XP Pro SP2 and IE7

I was trying to access a new security camera installation and it kept asking me for ActiveX permission. I kept saying 'install', but it still finally said that it would not install a program because the publisher could not be verified. I added to the trusted sites... but no change.

I edited the Group Policy and Security Policy, the IE-->Tools options

Now it tells me... "your security settings do not allow websites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer..."

It also won't start MSN Messenger or MS Defender saying the services can't start because of security settings.

I've tried System Restore, but it didn't fix anything??

Is there anyway to reset everything?

A:Screwed Up Security Policies

Security systems use a lot of proprietary software and hardware. I've found that the best place to find fixes for these problems is at the system maker's website.

Just a thought - but did this start to occur after installing IE7? It could be a problem with the new "protected mode" that IE7 uses.

However, the next time I started my workstation, the following message appeared:

Unfortunately, the system admin (IBM) could not help and suggested a reinstall of my workstation.

We are also running StopZilla and are experiencing the same warning of a hacker but cannot remove the virus we are then presented with an error message of ExplorerPolicies.NoDesktop.

We contacted the StopZilla live support and a repreentative took control of our computer and ran 'chkdsk c: /p/r' to try to retrieve the desktop, however we are still having the same problem. Currently we cant get through to StopZilla live chat again as we think that the virus is stopping the page geting through.

Hi.

I would like to change the "Disk Drive Policies" (see attached screenshot).



If I check the box "Enable write caching on disk" and "Enable advanced performance" and then click ok and after that I reopen the "Policies" again evrything is like it was before I made the changes.

Is there anything I can do in order that the changes I make will be accepted and won't jump back to the previous settings?

Thanks in advance,

A:Disk Drive Policies ?

Some disks don't expose external controls for modifying their cache settings. Note the text there in your screenshot - "This device does not allow its write cache setting to be modified."

The fact that you're still offered a functional tickbox is likely a UI issue, but that's of little consequence.

Hello,

I set up a Global Group Policy on our business Domain. I set the policy up to set the homepage, add trusted sites and custom level settings for IE. I used "User Configurations" in the Group Policy Editor, since this will apply to users.

Here is the problem: The problem happens when logging onto the domain. It seems that IF the the "Group Policy Editor" for this GPO is open, the settings will take effect at the user's login; however, if the "Group Policy Editor" is closed, the settings do NOT take effect when the user logs in. How weird is that? Do I have to keep the Group Policy Editor open on the screen the whole time for the policy to work???

I've looked at Microsoft's website, but I couldn't find anything specific on the issue (that is, if I ever find anything specific there).

GPEDIT.MSC (Group Policy Editor) isn't available on XP Home Edition, partly because XP Home cannot join a domain by design. Although the took is designed to be used in an Enterprise environment running Active Directory, all it really does is making registry entries. So, the best alternative is to edit the registry using Regedit. Be aware that editing the registry incorrectly can make your system unbootable or cause other issues.

Over the weekend we rolled out a new database that necessitated upgrading all the PC's to Access XP. In order to do that I first uninstalled every Office installation entirely and then reinstalled the complete package.

All went well except for one laptop. When the install begins the machine responds with the error message 'The System Administrator has set policies to prohibit this installation.' I've looked at the local policies but couldn't find anything that referenced installing software. Furthermore, I've logged on as a domain admin and also tried local admin and still I get the message.

I've asked our network admin if he's set anything and he said no. Anyone have any ideas about this? Very confusing.

A:user profiles / system policies

When you set them up an account do not give them admin priviledges. This will not allow them to install programs, delete windows for protected files etc with out admin priviledges. I also believe they will not be able to create a user profile, or any other computer functions.

You can then modify locally on each computer the privilages by typing

I was working on someones computer when I noticed you couldn t do certain things in internet explorer One example of this is using panda active scan When I try to click on scan now nothing happens I ve also noticed that sfc scannow denies me from running and throws some administrative error back However the user IS an administrator In her daughters account none of this happens How can I get to local security policies in Windows XP Home It is NOT listed under Adminstrative tools and does not exist when I goto run and type in secpol msc Is there any program or anything I can do to bring all security policies for this user back to default Some malicious program did this I m assuming because I cleaned out the computer before this happened I cannot post a Hijackthis log because the computer is not with me at the moment but I did have the owner check for any internet explorer restrictions and none are present nbsp

Hello,

we have our own tool, that check some rules in source code.
This tool returns true when code is ok, or false if some rules are broken.
It's possbile to attach our tool to check-in policies in visual studio?
How can we do this?
regards
cyberjoe
