Q: Now I feel stupid - GPOs aren't working!!

Okay I really must be doing something wrong but I don t think I am We just recently moved to Windows and I am trying to set up GPOs in our domain What I did was created a new OU for the domain In this OU I created a few OUs for various groups of computers different PC labs we have and OU for quot students quot and and OU for quot faculty quot I then moved the necessary computers into each computer OU and then placed the student global group and faculty global group into their respective OUs From here using AD Users and Computers Now - I feel stupid working!! GPOs aren't I right click on an OU Student OU for example and choose the Group Policy Tab I create a new GPO choose to enable quot Disable Control Panel quot and then rename the GPO and close it out I tried leaving it like this and did not work So I then clicked on the properties of the Student Global Group located inside the Student OU and chose the security tab where Now I feel stupid - GPOs aren't working!! I chose for the student global group READ and APPLY GROUP POLICY Still did not work What am I doing wrong Is there something else I should be looking at The same goes for GPOs I set up for any of the Computer OUs like enabling Now I feel stupid - GPOs aren't working!! the option to quot Not show the last logged on user quot No GPOs are effective right now Thank you all so much in advance Pete nbsp

Preferred Solution: Now I feel stupid - GPOs aren't working!!

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.)

... as I am still getting used to my PC and learning everything about it, but what exactly is

c/windows/logon.exe

?

You may all stone me and put my body in the pyramid of idiots later.
 

A:I feel stupid for asking...

Login.exe is the app that will run while you are choosing what account to login to. Basically it is what allows you to choose what account [and what privileges] you want to logon with. You can set a number of accounts; one for guests that just allows use of the net, one for kids that has filtering software enabled, one with all rights and privileges for you, etc.

I was trying to make a picture my background and instead I made it a desktop item put the picture in the bottom corner of my screen and I cant get rid off it please help

A:I feel stupid

It's a picture file that you can't get rid of, like a .jpeg or .gif?

If so just boot into SAFE mode (hit delete while the computer is booting and it will give you a menu) and delete it from there.

I downloaded IE8 earlier today, saved the program and now can't find it so I can/run and install it. There has to be an easier way!

A:I feel stupid!

Try starting up the download again. It'll ask you where you want to save it. Chances are good that the location it picks to save to will be exactly where it was earlier today when you did save it. So you can then just use your saved copy.

Failing that, check what filename it wants to save as, and type the filename into the start menu's search bar. Windows should be able to find the file without you needing to redownload.

Edit: Your OS is listed as Windows XP. Why post in the Windows Vista/7 support section? Anyways, use the windows search function or desktop search in XP, since the start menu doesn't have a search bar.

You should also run a popup killer if your firewall does not have one running.

I know that you make the processor or video card or whatever function at a better rate, but that's all i know. I am interested in possibly overclocking both my processor and my video card, but I have absolutely no idea where to start. I've googled it a few times, but nowhere has specifically told me how to overclock what I have and what processes and steps i have to go through, etc. Any help would be appreciated, and if anyone could guide me to a few sites that would be great too. Thank you

Don't ask me how I did it, or why I was being so stupid, but I was installing 256 mb more of DDR ram into my MSI 845 ultra mobo which already has 256 in it. I put in the ram BACKWARDS, yes, you heard me, backwards, and I started it up. WEll of course I smelled something burning and turned off the comp. Now here is what happens:

If I boot it up with the old ram in it, it freezes before it even gets to the windows loading screen.

If I boot it upw ith the new ram in, it gets to windows and either freezes or just shuts right off... how can I tell what is wrong? Thanks.

EDIT: My only idea for finding out something is going out and buying a new cheap stick of ram and trying it...cause i might have fried both sticks of ram.

wut is overclocking? i need in deep detail please
-rok
 

A:i feel kinda stupid for askin but wuts OCin?

OCing is short for overclocking. Overclocking is running stuff at speeds higher than recommended. People do it to their CPUs, but you can also do it to video cards and maybe other stuff.

Well the Making (Smart Feel SmartGlass, Stupid Me is Glass) full release is here I've installed Windows on my laptop I've SmartGlass, (Smart Glass) is Making Me Feel Stupid received the update for Xbox and this so called quot SmartGlass quot refuses to beam content from my laptop to my Xbox for display on my TV I've been trying to find a place where people are talking about this on the web but have had little luck in so doing I did get to a place within the SmartGlass app from the app Store where I could do a review and there were a lot of people who made complaints which were similar to mine or which were somewhat related It shocks me that--with all of the Beta testing Microsoft did--that they did not put together some kind of tutorial and troubleshooting guide to assist people with using SmartGlass For my part the only reason I took the upgrade was because SmartGlass sounded so cool The notion that you could pull up a browser on your PC or laptop begin watching streaming content and then transfer it to the largest screen in your house via Xbox was conceptually excellent It also would serve as a workaround for the fact that using the IE Browser which is now native on the Xbox does not work with sites using Adobe Flash So does anyone out there know if there are any resources for getting SmartGlass up and properly operating Or better yet anyone here solved similar problems I get my laptop to connect to the Xbox with no problem but it shortly thereafter disconnects and I have only ONCE gotten a website to appear from my PC to my TV and then the TV screen showed a compatibility error which was not displayed on my laptop's screen It's maddening and the Metro UI with all of its differences makes the frustration all the worse as the pathways of my mind are fairly well set in the navigation techniques of virtually every other Windows operating system I still can't believe Microsoft didn't give us some guidance on this

Using the latest Logitech software plus drivers.

I have a G500s at work on windows 7, and a G500s at home on windows 10.

I've gone through the software and the settings on both machines are identical.. but there's something really off feeling with the mouse acceleration on Windows 10.

Could it be a variance in the mouse or laser itself?
 

A:Anyone else feel Logitech Mice feel different on Window 10?

It's possible that Microsoft has messed with the mouse acceleration curve. As an Apple user I know how irritating even the slightest change in the curve can be.

Hi, this is my first post and im not sure if this is the right forum for my problem.
So I have this 6 year old laptop, I recently did a clean windows XP reinstall for it. After installing Internet, Graphics and Audio drivers, some programs still don't work. They either have graphics problems or they crash at start. Some don't even start up, although they are in the processes list in task manager
They work perfectly in my other computer also running XP.

Why don't they work with this one?

If you need any additional details then just ask, but also tell me how to find them.

When I restarted, I couldn't open mozilla, so I deleted it then used internet explorer (which works fine) to redownload it. That didn't work so I tried google chrome. That didn't work either. In both cases when I tried opening the browser I opened windows task manager to see what was going on. Both times the browser would load up to about 2000 K then stop, at the same time it was loading, windows problem reporting would load to about the same memory the stop suddenly as well. I don't know what the problem is... Please help me. Thank you

Try starting Firefox in Safe Mode. Hold down the Shift Key while starting Firefox. You may have a add-on that is keeping Firefox from starting.

There can be many explanations for this, probably most commonly a virus of some sort. Or, there might be a problem within your computer, depending on how everything is connected. If it becomes necessary, you may need to bring it into a repair shop.

Hey Gang I m using a store brand of DVDRW I purchased them several months ago Recently I recorded some movies on to several of them At the time they worked Disks Aren't Working DVD-R fine Today I tried them again on my DVD-R Disks Aren't Working PC DVD-R Disks Aren't Working DVDRW and they didn t show up I cleaned them and they showed up as a mpg that didnt play They should be VOB files Right now I get the error saying quot E is not accessible Incorrect function quot I then put them in my TV-DVD player and I got a message that no disk was found Is there anything I can do to restore these files Not all the disks have this problem It seems to happen with the disks I recorded in the last couple of days I used Nero to record them I flashed my hardware recently to accomodate the newer disks When this started happening I flashed them again downward Still no joy I hear some kind of weird sound coming out of the DVD player when I tried to play them I to sounds like it is trying to grab hold of something but having no luck nbsp

A:DVD-R Disks Aren't Working

I'm using a store brand of DVDRW.Click to expand...

Always buy quality media. Store brands usually aren't. Also, DVDRW media, isn't very reliable. Use DVD-R as you listed in the title of the thread. You can try this, but I don't think it's gonna fix your problem. I think your problem is the media you used.

Go into your Device Manager, and find your drive. Right click on it, and choose "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install new a driver for you.

I have tried to tell people that this is what happens when you use Memorex, Khypermedia, and most store brands of media (mostly any media made in Taiwan. Verbatim is the exception). They record ok, and look ok the first time or two you watch them. But when you go back, to watch them again, they may be unwatchable. When buying blank dvds, look on the package for "Made In Japan". It's usually near the bar code. That's not saying you'll never have problems. But you'll have a lot less problems associated with bad media. Sony, Maxell,and Fuji, are good brands, if you get the ones "Made In Japan" (MIJ). MIJ Fuji discs are getting very hard to find though. Verbatim is the only Taiwan made (MIT) media, you should consider.

If the reinstall of the hardware, through the device manager works, I'd copy your discs over to better media, while you can. If it doesn't, I don't think there's much you can do to save what you've burned. I think most software used to encode and burn dvds, puts the files in a folder, on your hard drive. You may find the files for one burned dvd. If you used the same software to do all the dvds, it uses the same folder and overwrites what's in it, each time you do another dvd. That's why I say you might find files for one dvd you burned.
Good luck!

I have the Philips MMS205 which consists of 4 satellite speakers and a subwoofer. My sound card is a Soundblaster Live! X-Gamer. My satellites are properly hooked up to the subwoofer. The line IN on the subwoofer is connected to the line OUT on the computer, and the surround IN is connected to the Rear OUT on the computer. However, the problem is that only ONE of the satelites and the subwoofer are working, the other three satelites are not emitting any sounds. Please reply if you know what is wrong and/or what i can try. Thanks.
 

A:satellite speakers aren't working

1) Can you try the speakers on another computer? They may be bad.

2) Try the front out to the surround speakers and see if they both work.

This should pin the problem down.

Oy.

I have an ADC (or AOC, can't read the font) monitor with built in speakers. Today, they have suddenly stopped working. I checked all the sound controls, made sure everything was plugged in, and even restarted a few times. I also fiddled around with everything in between.

And yet, I still get no sound. I've learned that while im listening to music, if I turn my monitor off, I can catch a quick millisecond of sound from the speakers. The same also happens if I turn my monitor on, so I'm pretty sure nothing's truly broken. In any case, I'd reaaaally like some help on this problem, pleeease.

 If this happened to me, I'd restore from my last good full system backup.  If you don't have one, I'd consider this a learning experience.  Then save any data you don't want to lose, and try System Restore.  If that doesn't help,
restore your system to factory settings, and reload your software.

This is not your typical quot My modern apps don't work quot post Some of my apps are working fine for instance Edge and Mail Others do not such as the Windows Store Weather Photos etc I've tried all the various tricks to uninstall and re-install these apps but get the same thing The Event Log says that the apps can't be quot activated quot which indicates Universal Apps working aren't Certain some kind of licensing issue perhaps but I haven't found the solution yet This is Windows Enterprise build It's joined to a domain and I strongly suspect that my domain admins have a group policy that Certain Universal Apps aren't working is interfering but I can't be sure They had already disabled Microsoft Accounts and turned off Telemetry via group policy and registry settings which I have countered by forcing these back on and denying update access to those keys I suppose it's possible that this might be affecting the apps as well but it's strange that some apps work and some don't Any suggestions SFC and Dism cleanups report no issues or corruption App re-installs seem to complete fine but the apps still don't work UAC is of course ON

Hello all and and as a disclaimer please excuse any and all of my ignorance, I am not at all very good with computers, it even took me a minute to figure out my OS lol! but i have a serious problem: My USB drivers are no longer reading my phones and other devices the message i get is "USB Device Not Recognized", When i click the message and go through the troubleshoot it gets no where. It's like my computer doesn't even realize that the devices and drivers are malfunctioning, also i don't know if it is related but it seems like files, apps and folders are constantly being deleted without my consent and no one else has access to my pc. i suspect foul play hidden in my system. Any help would be very appreciated. thank you so much everyone!

How's it goin,
I seem to have a problem with games that i put on my laptop (Acer Aspire 3680, 64mb graphics card). They all install correctly but when I play 'Lord of the Rings-BFME II' it loads the black screen then comes up with a blue background and all these error messages and shuts the computer down. I also have 'Worms-World Party' demo which loads black screen thens returns to desktop and error message 'worms world party has been stopped, sending error report', even tho my 'dawn of war-wa 'demo works fine. I have re-installed both games plus running them both as administrator, can't seem to figure it out, all programs work perfectly on my laptop it's just games that are a hassle. Anyone have a solution??

Yesterday, I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. All went good, and I'm fully satisfied with Windows 10, but when I called a friend on Skype, I couldn't hear him at all. Not in my headphones. I searched on Google and saw on a lot of forums that if I unninstal that "VIA HD Audio (Win 10) it will fix my problem, but it didn't.[/B] They're still not working, even after I updated the driver back. I also installed Realtek HD Audio driver, after seeing on other forum, but it still didn't work at all. When I click on the speaker icon, go to playback devices, it's not showing headphones, but only speakers. Do you guys know what I can do ? Do you got any idea? I don't want to go back to Windows 7 just because of this.

Applications like Sims 2 and iwin game portal claim that they cannot connect to the internet, even though I can open up my Firefox and browse as normally. It's really irritating, I've tried unplugging internet, restarting my computer then plugging it back in again but that didn't work.

what firewall do you have or have you had on the P|C
sounds like the firewall is blocking
If you have had Norton , mcafee etc demo versions installed they can cause issues like this - even if uninstalled , residue can still block

A:Why aren't my USB Device Divers not working on my laptop?

Hi Mista Monroe,

Welcome onboard.

The infcache.1 in C:Windows/System32/DriverStore might have been corrupted. Deleteing it and allowing Windows rebuild it may resolve the issue.

Do the following:
Disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. (Desktop only) (Remove all USB devices in a Laptop)
Locate the INFCACHE.1 file in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore , right click on it, and then click Properties.
In the INFCACHE.1 Properties dialog box, click the Security tab, and then click Edit.
In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
In the Permissions for INFCACHE.1 dialog box under the Group or user names section, click Add.
In the Select Users or Groups dialog box in the Enter the object names to select text box, type Administrators, (plural) not just Administrator. Click OK.
In the Permissions for INFCACHE.1 dialog box in the Permissions for Administrators section, select to allow Full Control, and then click OK.
In the INFCACHE.1 Properties dialog box, click OK.
In the Windows Explorer window, delete INFCACHE.1 (Instead of deleteing you can rename it as INFCACHE.1bak and keep it as a backup, just in case you need to go back.)
Connect a USB device other than the one or all that Windows had trouble detecting. (That means that it has to be one that had not been connected to it earlier anytime.) This forces Windows to rebuild the INFCACHE.1 file.
This detection issue can happen several times in a row. If so, repeat steps 1-10 until the device is detected.

Problem - I click on the START icon, the go to the GAMES, the only one that works properly is Chess Titans. None of the others (like Mah Jong, Minesweeper, Hearts, Solitaire) run properly. When I try to play, it looks like they are starting, then a pop-up message appears (see attached screenshot as an example). It doesn't give any solution to this problem despite what the message says. Why the chess game works and none of the others is mystifying. I am no computer wiz and would like to know how to fix this, if it is fixable. Thanks.

I would try going to Control Panel > Programs and Features > Windows Components...

Uninstall all the games.

Click OK all the way out, then reboot.

Now repeat the process, only this time re-enable the ones you want.

If that doesn't work then you'll need to take other steps, so post back and someone will help

I had this same problem happen in January and was given awesome advice to fix with command prompt, but I cant find it because it was closed. It would not go online wirelessly (still dont) so I did a system restore, now it wont undo system retore, or bring up windows update or many other programs. I was trying to find the command prompt details that we're given to me 2 months ago with no luck. I am running windows 7 home premium.

A:did system restore and now certain programs aren''t working

Go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the CMD icon in the results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type chkdsk /F and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and restart your computer. Check Disk will run at next bootup and check any files.
Also in the Elevated Command prompt you can type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing files.
If you still can't connect wirelessly, go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc Right click devmgmt icon and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers installed.
What is the make and model # of your computer? On an internet computer, go to the Manufacturers support/download drivers site. Type in your make and model # and download the Chipset and WiFi network adapter driver and any other drivers you need from the Device Manager.

When I went to google.com all I get is "Address not Valid" on IE and I know I typed the address correctly. Then when I try firefox I get "The connection has timed out". Does anyone know why this keeps happening? x.x; I also tried Yahoo's search engine and the same thing happens. Same for Bing too.

A:Google and other search engines aren't working for me...

Check for malicious proxy servers.

*In IE: Tools Menu -> Internet Options -> Connections Tab ->Lan Settings > uncheck "use a proxy server" and "Bypass proxy server for local addresses" or reconfigure the Proxy server again in case you have set it previously.

In Firefox in Tools Menu -> Options... -> Advanced Tab -> Network Tab -> "Settings" under Connection and uncheck the proxyserver, set it to No Proxy.

ok, so everyone is clear. I know how to enable sharing through users and networks. that's not my issue. my issue that when I select more than one folder to do a quick share with through the share with tab, it disappears. so im forced to do one folder at a time. I used to be able to select as many folders as I wanted and use the quick share option. any ideas?


thank you for your time.

2 weeks ago, I think it was a Monday, my sister turned off the computer for the night... the next morning she turned it on and the mouse didn't work.

The mouse is USB connected and isn't responding. The red light on the bottom is turned on, but it won't move the cursor. When I plugged in my Mp3 player, it didn't really respond, just the Charging screen flashes every few seconds, then turns off again...

And when I go to 'My Computer', the places where 'Driver E-J' usually is, is gone. It's just blank slots where they should be, then shows 'Erin's Documents', 'Shelly's Documents' files....

Is this a virus or something else?

We've been running the full version of Stop Sign over and over again hoping it would find something, but it doesn't pick anything up.

Hi xErin and welcome to TSF

It seems that you might have an issue with drivers on your computer so we will now do a check with the Windows Device Manager to make sure of this. Please follow the steps below:

Windows XP Method
Click Start
Click Run
Type in devmgmt.msc and click Ok

In your next post report back if you see yellow exclamation marks, or red X's on any icon in the Device Manager.

I do not know why these keys in particular.

A:keys aren't working correctly(Using on screen keyboard)

Sounds like it could be a mechanical fault Keyboards work as a matrix of switches and if there is a problem with the interconnections it can sometimes cause apparently random failures such as yours. If you were getting the wrong characters I would suspect a software issue, (which of cause it still may be),

My best advice is to see if you can find a local Tech that gives free estimates for repairs and let them diagnose it for you, if you were dealing with a desktop it would be a simple swap out of the keyboard but laptops are not that easy to either get at the keyboard to check/change or to pick up a keyboard for testing.
