Preferred Solution: how can i share an article on health and fitness ?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi zap9x, welcome to Windows EightForums.
If you are speaking of the 'Health and Fitness' App, with the article open, reveal the Charms Bar and click on 'Share' for sharing options.

On a home network. My computer runs Windows 7 and this is the printer. I've never done this, but I would like to do it on my own (as much as possible ); I ant to learn how to set up network and share devices on it. If there's a tutorial somewhere about this, I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks fellas

A:Help me share the printer

What you are probably wanting is a wireless router. The printer is wireless (Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n )). Once the printer is connected to the wireless network, anyone on the network whether wired or wireless will have access. The reason I suggest a wireless router is more possibilities than simply the printer, and the assumption that you don't currently have a network.

If you are already connected to a network and are using the USB 2.0 connectivity, all you would need to do is share the printer within printer properties. This would allow anyone on the network to see and use the device.

Which of the two directions would you like to adventure into? What exactly do you have to work with at the moment, or are you planning on purchasing network gear?

Hello everyone I wonder if of SSDs Long health term of you guys could answer a few questions about SSDs that I ve been sitting on for a while now Specifically I m wondering if SSDs can become quot damaged quot or permanently altered in performance by getting too full or failing to Long term of health of SSDs properly use TRIM I ve got GB OCZ Agility SSDs in RAID GB total size performance is quite breathtaking and I ve seen transfer speeds of GB per second However I ve heard that TRIM is not supported in Windows or in general when running SSDs in RAID and I ve also read somewhere on the great wide Internet that SSD performance can really drop off as the drives approach full capacity especially without TRIM functionality What I have not been able to find any clear information on Long term of health of SSDs is whether this performance loss is permanent or if it can be fixed simply by reformatting the drives as another RAID array or as single drives My Agility RAID array is approximately full as of right now and it previously was around until I moved some files and apps off of it to my TB Caviar Black drive I could move more apps but before I do I d like to know whether it s even worth the effort In short I d like to know if A drive performance has indeed dropped it doesn t seem like it s dropped too much but I didn t run any quot real quot benchmarks on it when it was new so I can t really compare it to anything and B if performance has dropped is there anything I can do to fix it and how would I go about fixing it In very short tl dr OCZ x GB Agility RAID Array will it be slower as it fills if so how can it be fixed and is the quot damage quot permanent nbsp

A:Long term of health of SSDs

I'll warn you, I don't know that much about SSD's, even though I own one as a boot drive but they are essentially flash memory and as far as I know, the more that is stored on flash memory, the slower it gets (especially in the 90%-100%) full range. I have experienced this with a few smaller devices, especially phones. As far as I know, teh best way is simply to decrease teh data stored on it, or get one with a bigger capacity. Ultimately, this is what I can guess from having expirience with similar types of memory. Hope it helps!

I have noticed my graphics card has become louder than it previously I decided to put it through its paces using fur-mark and to my disappointment it was hitting max temps of 92degrees.

I have a tube of Arctic Silver lying around. I replace the cards stock paste or is there another trick that can help with cooling?

Furmark is specifically designed to stress test the card. Chances are high that you won't see this kind of stress in most games.

What kinds of cooling solution do you have in your case? Any side fans pointing to the GPU, sufficient airflow, etc?

Hi Everyone

I have a laptop with Windows 7 installed, using USB 3G device connect though the Internet. The problem is I have 3 machines and a spare router that I want to share the Internet.

Can you please advise how to share the internet from a laptop through a router ?

A:Unable to share the Internet from a laptop through a router

Hello! Sadly, for all intents and purposes, it just doesn't work like that. I'm not saying it's impossible, because I have read how techies have made this happen - but it requires an insane amount of configuration, 3rd party software, a little programming, and a good grasp of linux. The router has to have the internet connection to share out to other computers. Go and get a wifi hotspot instead of a 3G USB device. The wifi hotspot, depending on the provider, should support up to 5+ connections. Another option is the see what ISPs are in your area, get service at your residence, then you could use the router. Hope this helps!

let's confirm what you are asking . . .

yes, that is possible. the second router acts as a bridge and wired systems can use it.

to use 2nd router with wifi to 'shared connections' you need another wifi router, eg

Why the two networks? Joining the routers can be done, but you will need to drop one ISP.

Dear all
i know there is atopic with the same name but it doesn't solve my problem
any how i want to do the same work by sharing a printer with a vpn in connection but
when i ping it its giving me a message
requested time out
if i disable the VPN it connects normally
i don't know what to do really

A:Share printer over VPN connection?

Where is the printer located? On a Domain or Workgroup?
Is the Printer Shared already? If not that needs to be done at the location.
Do you have permission to use such shared printer?
Are you at work or at home?
Are you trying to use a printer on your Workgroup at the same time you connect to your company domain via VPN?
Are you on your company laptop?
Do you have permission granting you access to change administration functions on your company laptop.

The last one is very important because it would allow you to add your home printer to your laptop and you could use this printer any time you're connected over the VPN tunnel. If you can't get admin rights, then you need to bring the printer CD/DVD or have a support tech add your printer to your laptop. Ticket would need to be generated though? If required by your companies policies?

I want to be able to print from any of my workstations directly to the printer. It is not a networked printer, as it connects directly to the Windows XP desktop PC.

Is this possible? If so, how? Everything is hard-wired to a wireless router except for the laptop which uses the wireless capabilities.

Go wireless... Spend a little on a wireless router and a wireless NIC for your computer. The XBOX should have wireless capability already.

It does not matter what your connection is - wireless, wired, dialup, carrier pidgeons - it doesn't matter. You can always share it.

What you are experiencing may be some limitation of the Windows ICS or the wizard you are using. Depending on how the public access thing is set up, you may be able to share the connection by bridging the wireless and LAN connections on your computer. (Select both wireless and LAN in your network connections, right click and say that you want to bridge these two.

A:How to share a printer on a network?

Alright, XP does make it a bit easier. Do you have XP Pro? Cause pro may have some more steps to take.

Right-click My Computer on the host (PC with printer) and then click Properties. Next click the Computer Name tab. Look at the Workgroup name, write it down. Also make note of the "full computer name". Go to this same place on the client PC (other one) and if needed, click the "Change" button to put it on the same workgroup.

Next open My Computer. Then click Tools-Folder Options. On the host PC. Go to the View tab and scroll to the bottom of the list and see if there is a check mark next to an item called "Use simple file sharing". If so, uncheck it. May not be needed, but not sure.

Now go into Control Panel-Printers on the host. Right-click the printer and choose the sharing option. Check that the share name is nice and small and that the appropriate permissions are set to allow access.

During these operations, you may be required to restart, that's fine.

If you have done all these and still can't connect to the share, then it is likely a firewall problem. Since you have a router (which should also be a firewall), make sure neither computer has a software firewall running. Check your Antivirus, if it's some versions of McAfee or Norton or Panda, it may have a firewall function, turn it off.

To check the Windows firewall, go into Control Panel and click Security Center. There should be a link to firewall settings on the bottom, turn that OFF on both PCs as well.
Then try to connect to the shared printer again.

I personally think it's a firewall problem, as XP is normal extremely easy for printer sharing. In fact, if certain settings are in place, XP will automatically find and install shared printers, without you even having to do anything.

Good luck

Welcome to TechSpot...

Click on System Icon
Click on Computer Name
Give your PC a Name for A-ultraject1 also create a workgroup name ultrajetnet

Give your PC a Name for B-ultraject2 also create a workgroup name ultrajetnet

Now it gets tricky here... You need to look for Administration Tools in the control panel Click on that then click on Local Security Policy
Click on Local Policies
Click on Security Options

Now to your far right you'll see a list of stuff
Scroll down the list for:

Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts: Guest
Change the Guest to Classic

Now scroll down a bit too
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level: change the default
to: Send NTLM response.

Now go back to the start button
click on start
then on run
type: services.msc

scroll down the list to the far right for
Computer Browse - Make sure this is set to Auto and is enabled
Network Connections - Make sure this is set to Auto and is enabled

Reboot both PCs down.. If you have problem still get a small switch 5-port type and connect both PCs to it. Better than using the crossover cable. Or you can get yourself a router and let that device do the work. But you still need to have the above set in place...

I have a basic network setup with a Model, a Router to split the connection, and 3 computers and 2 laptops with a wireless card and 1 computer wired to the router. How can I split the connection so that if only 1 is online, it gets full speed, but as soon as the second comes online, it shares it's speed with it, but balanced, so not that if PC 1 is gaming with a ping of 10ms, and PC 2 comes online and streams videos online, PC 1's ping raises to 1000.

Because I have the idea that this happens allot.

I don't think theres much you can do about it.

It's not the Network thats a bottleneck, its the Internet. If you are happily fragging with a good ping, and someone else starts looking at YouTube videos, you are sharing the bandwidth, and both are gonna suffer to some extent, more so if someone else joins in.

The question I have now (and I am sure it is a simple one!) is this - how do I create links between files and folders on other drives on the XP machine and the shared drive and the same with files and folders on Ubuntu? So that I am not cutting and pasting everything to the shared drive.

Was a little anxious and wanted reassurance before doing anything - however some basic web searches calmed my frayed nerves - it's been a busy day.

Hi everyone

I have a computer running on Vista Home Basic and one running on XP Professional and they are connected through a Cable Router, I can get Internet on both but I cannot seem to set up for file/printer sharing can anyone give me a A to Z on how to do this please


A:share files

First off,

In vista you need to make sure that the File/Printsharing option is on

Start>Right Click Network> Properties

That will open up the sharing center. You need to make sure that the sharing option is on.

On the XP Machine

start>My Computer

Right click on the folder called "Shared Folder"
Tab "Sharing"
At the bottom under "Network Sharing"
Click on the text saying "If you understand......"
Select "Just enable File Sharing"

When this is all done, Go back to the Vista crate

Start > Network

You shoud then see your other computer apear after a Min or Two

You can get more info on Vista Sharing Here

Hello all,

I'm trying to set up file and printer sharing on a desktop and laptop with xp on both. The internet connection is fine, shared through a Belkin router. The router is wired to the desktop and the laptop connects wirelessly.

If I try to add a printer to the laptop via 'Add new printer' I cannot browse the network - I get a message saying "Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."

Also, I can't share files between the two computers.

Any help would be much appreciated.

If you need more info, please ask - I'm not very good at networking.

A:Can share internet but can't share files

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

The quickest fix is a router/hub rather than peer to peer cable.
Do you have file and print sharing turned on?
Try setting up network wizard to something other than "MSHOME"
You might have only internet sharing turned on.
Did you create the files for network or just "finish network setup",
in the wizard?

This has helped me by setting guest password.

spike said:

Protect your guest account - The guest account can be used by hackers and/or malware to gain greater access to your machine, even when turned off. The guest account can't be removed. However, you can disable it, but this can affect the functionality of your computer. Instead, what you can do, and what you probably should do, is put a strong password on it, and then leave it safely turned off. You do this by opening a command window (start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter). at the command prompt, type net user guest <password> (where <password> is your chosen password, being something you can remember). After hitting the enter key, the guest account will be password protected. If your machine is networked and authenticating as guest, then you'll need this password to access network shares - if you tell it to remeber the password, it will only ask the once.Click to expand...

I'm thinking something similar to ftp, have no idea what options there are.

Have 3 computers want to network between both in a more convenient manner than msn.

Hopefully can get some recomendations to minimise trauling time. Both computers are running windows XP and are connected through a multi-port router.

Thanks for any input.

A:Home network, looking for server to share files between computers.

You should be able to do this simply WITHOUT a server. All you have to do to share files, is use windows file sharing. Let me paint a picture for you...say you have your 3 computers. One is named Suzy, one is Steve, and one is Bill. Once file sharing is enabled (which you can do just by sharing a file), you should be able to do something similar to this. Say your on the computer Bill, and you want to grab some files from the shared folder on Suzy. Open up my computer, and in the address bar (Where is says your location) type in \\Suzy. This will give you access to the files and printers on that computer. BTW if you dont know how to rename a computer, right click on the my computer icon and select properties. Once the system tool comes up, click on computer name and change if necessary. Good luck and I hope this helps make things cheaper than buying a crappy old server lol.

Hi there,
My LAN is using 192.168.xx.xx network. but I have a small office in Indonesia which all 4 users connects their notebook and retrieve email using SecurID(VPN). They are always connected and my VPN gives a 10.10.xx.xx IP address. my printer is network enabled and is plugged to the router(print server enabled). How do i share this printer with the users always connected to VPN. ?? pls help..

A:How to share printer over VPN connection?

well, if you have a print server on the network, and your outside users are VPN'd in, they should be able to ping to the address of that print server. If they can, you can direct them through the Add Printer Wizard, have them manually configure a new Standard TCP/IP port, and then add the print drivers. After that you should be good to go.

I am wanting to use 2 usb drives for backup. i am using one drive at a time and when one backs up i swap it with another so that i can take one offsite. does anyone know how to assign 2 drives with the same drive letter. I wouldnt be plugging them in at the same time. I want it this way so that i wont have to change the drive letter every time. Is there any drive management software out there that will do this? Please help me!!!

A:making 2 usb drives share the same drive letter

You don't have to assign them drive letters. I have a number of clients that I do exactly what you want to do (off-site back-up we call it). Plug one in and note what letter it is assigned. As long as you don't keep plugging in device after device, it will always get the next available drive letter.

You are better off assigning your other HDD's that are fixed into your PC drive letters, leaving your USB HDD's to always take the next available letter (which is common behaviour, if nothing is assigned E:, it will get E: ).

A friend of mine is trying to set up a minor network: one pc on XP to a laptop also on XP. This is a wired network, each have their own nic, wired via a switch. This is running via a cable network.

PC us sending and receiving packets

laptop is receiving but not sending

Firewalls are both Sygate Personal free and are set to work on a network. (they were on ZoneAlarm originally, didnt like it, so reverted to Sygate)

If I run the laptop by itself, directly via the modem it happily gets on line

Send it back to it's own place: "limited or no connection". Same happens if I swap the pc for the laptop.

Any help? If so, I feel a few beers coming on!

For each PC setup IP address.

Default Gateway:

PC 2 :

And etc..

Don't hookup the Cable Modem just yet

See if you can connect with the 2 or 3 PCs first.

Ping -f -i 50 (for pc one)

see if you get hits instead of losses.

Make sure you set all your NIC cards to auto instead of 10/100.

Now I am setting up a printer sharing for my network. I like to share the printer which is connected to a PC behind a linksys cable/dsl router. The router is connected to WAN. Then, I like to print from a PC that is also connected to WAN. I can share the printer when I connected its PC to WAN directly (mean no router between PC and connection jack). But, when I put it behind the router, the printer-PC can't be identified (searched).

I also set the router's DMZ feature with the IP address of the printer-PC to have router allow inbound connection to the printer-PC. But when I type in the internet IP address of the router (not the local ip in the web browser of the other PC that needs printer sharing, this inbound connection is not forwarded to the printer-PC.

Can anyone of you please give me suggestion on router configuration? Thanks..

A:Outside PC want to share a printer behind a linksys router

FIrst, printer sharing has nothing to do with web pages, so trying to access the server computer with a web browser is useless. Well, unless you have activated a webserver there or you are using some special print server software that has a web page.

Assuming that you are using Windows file and printer sharing, then exposing this to the internet is a bad, bad, bad idea.

Setting up a print server with a JetDirect service is slightly better. The right way to do it is a VPN solution or some kind of secure tunneling using SSH or something similar.

A:Need two HD's to run on different Operating systems but share computer parts.

Your PC can only ever have one OS running at the time, so either W2K or XP.
Put both HD's in the same machine, have W2K installed in the first partition of the first (master) drive.
Do whatever partitioning you want, making all partitions NTFS.
When finished installing W2k etc., install XP in the first partition of the second HD.
They can share any partitions you want, including the OS-partitions.

Alternatively, have a good look at HyperOS, they may have (almost) exactly what you want.

See a previous post

You're not setting up the routers correctly. You may want to read through another post which dealt with a problem similar to yours ( ).

Your two routers solution was probably overkill but should be workable. One wireless router plus one 5 or 8 port fast Ethernet switch would have been your best setup. These switches are very inexpensive. I would have put the wireless router in the basement and a network switch on the 2nd floor.

A:Is there some program to analyse "MoBo's health"??

Thre is no such universal software. Motherboards are very different and it would have to be a manufacturer specific tool. You can look around Asus' website.

First things to check are memory (plenty of memory testers out there), PSU (is is good enough to spin all your drives?) and temperature (maybe run some burn-in thing for a couple of hours).

And don't worry about the damage to your mobo. If it's broken then it's broken. And if it's not then no software can possibly damage it in any way (unless you screw up a BIOS flash).

Hey i was wondering how well embedded graphics cards do. I am looking into getting a Athlon xp 2600 and the mother board comes with Embedded Real256E 3D Graphics with 64M share memory. I was wondering if the graphics would be good enough to play Battlefield 1942 and Medal of Honor. If anyone out there uses the onboard video, please post and tell me how well they work.

Hey guys, i really want to find a tool that is similar to Staples Norton Technician Toolkit, Where it can run a "Tune-Up" scan, and print a report for the customer. But then can also be used to fix the issues found.

I'd prefer to find a freeware if they exist, since i only get 10-20 computers a month. But any suggestions would be helpful, I have done alot of searching but havent really found anything that supplys a report option and can be run from a flashdrive.

A:USB Run Computer Health program

Using latest stable Vadilia / TOR / Privoxy bundle for Windows (on Vista x64), with Tor Button for Firefox.

When trying to d/l ANY type file from many file sharing sites, incl Rapidshare, always get message:

Your IP address is already downloading a file. Please wait until the download is completedClick to expand...

I'm not downloading a file from the stated address, & often haven't downloaded anything from that site - in days, or EVER (someone else may be).

Even if I get a NEW IP address (by various means), clear Firefox & the page & try again, get same message.

Any ideas what's going on & how to get around it?

A:bear share and internet explorer keep closing

I'm not sure how to fix your current problem, but I am here to tell you to be careful when downloading things from P2P networks. There is quite a bit of CRAP loaded on those networks, and it can screw up your computer quicker than you can say "Oh NO!"

I have outlook express for my email client. I use two accounts on my computer. My administrator account is for loading programs and admin type stuff. My user account is for surfing the web. My user account has limited access so that thing are harder to be installed on my computer from the web.

I have them sharing the OE folder. If when I try to access mail from the user account, it says I don't have enough memory and the application closes with error (0x800c012E, 5).

If I change the account type to administrator, then the problem goes away. Does anyone know of a way I can share the folder but have the user account stay limited?

Thank you.

A:Can't share OE 6.0 dbx folder with two accounts if one is "limited."

You should do away with OE altogether, it is way too 'holey' and infection-prone.

hi i don't know if you can actually do this but i would like to make it where
all users have all the same files folders desktop as i do.

reason: I've been locked out of logon before. i really prefer the simple welcome screen with no log on at all but i understand why you need to for security.

anyway, if i get locked out of logon it seems like it would be nice to have full access to all functions same desktop etc... to be able to easily go in and
fix it. all three logons are for myself with administrative privileges.

may sound crazy but sounds like it would be the easiest way to prevent
myself from being locked out.

example: in the past I've typed in my password and even chose no admin password
and have had logon rejected or hidden.

is this a stupid idea or possible?

A:Share all users xp pro

IMO, the REAL solution for you is to use a password removal tool whenever you encounter this situation. There are several. All they do is clear the password(s) for the accounts. So whenever you can't remember your password, just clear it with the password removal tool. I use Ultimate Boot CD which has one.

I am wanting to get a Money Plus program to my son's computer. His computer and my computer are connect with a wireless network adapter. Is there a way to send the Money program to his computer? I do not have the CD. I bought it via net and downloaded it. I do not have the product key email that they sent me and I have no clue who I bought it from.

Is there any way to get this program to his computer so I do not loose it?

I do not even have a CD burner on my computer. It is on his computer.

My Samba have been set up and now i can share my CDROM between 2000 .
Using my network place---Workgroup---CDROM from 2000.

I tried to put my Root folder from RH9 to share .

I used my win 2000 to access the folder ,
i get a message

" \\Localhost\root is not accessible. The network name cannot be found"

But the strange is that i can access RH9 CDROM folder from WINDOWS!

i wonder if my Samba setting is set right!
But my CDROM settings from Samba is exactly the same as ROOT settings.
The Samba settings is displayed below.

Base Options:
path: /root

Security Options:
guest account :nobody
read only:Yes
guest ok: No

Browse Options
Browseble :Yes

Miscellaneous Options
Available: Yes

I have also tried playing resetting the Base Option
Base Options:
path: /

but still it doesn't work

A:Samba up, but only able to share CDROM.

First of all, there is no need to create multiple threads for the same problem.

& as allready said in your other thread, if from the windows machine you are trying to access localhost, you are accessing THE WINDOWS MACHINE, not the Linux machine.

localhost refers to the machine you are working on, not the machine you are connecting to.
