Preferred Solution: Win7 on Domain - Unable to access 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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a window desktop 64 bit that I joined to a domain and migrated the profile from a workgroup to a domain using profwiz.exe

Everything is fine except for the network drives which disappeared a few times.

Whether I am logging off or the user just sits there, it wouild disappear and I have no idea why this is happening.

Can anyone help me with a possible solution or reasonf or this to be happening?

Event viewer does not show any problems related to this.

I managed to create a quick .bat file to remapped the drive on login and on the user desktop that she can run when she can't get into them.

Hello,
I have 3 interfaces running Win7 on a company network with 3 network share drives on the server.
These interfaces are part of WORKGROUP.  Mapped drives work while on WORKGROUP settings.
When changing to company domain, drives are no longer mapped with an error 1909.
Tried disabled Windows firewall but this did not help.  Also disconnected drives and tried remapping them to the interface.
Still getting error 1909.  When I return settings to WORKGROUP network status, share drives are accessible.
There are 3 other interfaces running Win7 on the network that I switched to the domain and were able to connect to drives.
Please advise with any new options.
Thank you,
Troy

Dear all,

I'm facing a real strange problem in our WIN2003 network. We are running around 15 machines with XP in out local domain where there's no problem with Internet connectivity.
Now we started to shift from XP to WIN7 (using a new machine) but
# we can easily logon to the domain
# we can see/ping all local machines/servers including our Fortigate firewall
# and it takes us hours to get access to the outside world on the WIN7 machine
# once we suceeded, there are "losses" many many times which causes big problems handlings mails (outlook/kerio) or web page access (Firefox,IE)

Any idea?

Thx already a lot in advance...

You may want to try disabling IPV6. Some have said it can cause problems and since you're in a WS2003 domain, IPV6 isn't used anyway.

Hey all, been ages since I been here. I dig the "new" layout! :D

I need help and hoping the fine folks here can assist as usual. Have already posted on another site, so including that thread here to avoid repeating what my issue is and what I have done thus far.

http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,114667.0.html

Basically, I got 2 laptops. A new Win7 Home Premium and an XP SP3 netbook. Both are on the same workgroup. Both have full admin privilege accounts. Shares/drives are enabled as I have always done on Win environments.

Problem is: I am getting Access is Denied when I try to access my Win7 C: and D: drives from XP. I can see the Win7 laptop, I can even map the drives, but cannot access Win7 drives from XP. From Win7 to C: and D: on XP is no problem at all, as always.

Yes, I am aware of that sharing root of drives is inadvisable. However, I am on a fairly secure home LAN [sole user] and I want to do this.

This issue is driving me crazy and there seem to be a million possible causes/solutions. None I have tried have worked thus far.

Really could use some help people.

tia and cheers!

Hi All,
I have a problem where my windows 8.1 laptop after a weekend network update will no longer access shared folders on my company's network domain. If I use a different machine to login (windows 7), access to the folders is fine.  Our IS team assures me
that all permissions are correct. I don't want to if possible rebuild the machine as I have specialised software on it that has taken a while to get sorted, including something that links to a local sql server instance.
Could this be a corrupted profile?  Any suggestions on a solution please? Will I lose ability to use any existing software and / or will I need to re-set these up?
I appreciate any guidance.

I have had this system for over a year and no problems. A few days ago I could not access my dvd drives in xp. They are still assigned letters in my computer and the device manager tells me that both devices are working properly. I have tried every type of disk that I have. They will not autoplay nor will they open. I have not installed any new software lately. Everything else on my system works. I have a dual boot system, xp pro and vista ultimate 64 with each os being on a seperate hd. When I go into vista my dvd's work fine. I have downloaded the latest firmware for both optic drives. I can't play music from a cd or install any programs. My computer shows me that they are there but i just can't get in them.

This all started when I was unable to reach my NAS drive (DNS-323) from my laptop. ("The network location cannot be found.")
Trying from other computers was successful...so I know the problem is related to just my laptop.

I started up a MalwareBytes scan and when it reached my ATAPI.SYS file...my AVAST AV popped up with a virus alert. AVAST reported that I have a "Win32:Alureon-FR" located in "C":\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\atapi.sys".

I told AVAST to skip the file (for now) and I terminated the MalwareBytes scan.

What is the best sequence to get this file cleaned up?

...but my CD-ROM drive works fine and my DVD drive can access CD-ROMs.
Here's my system:
-HP Pavillion 8755C 800MHz, 128MB RAM, running Windows ME
-Std floppy disk controller
-LG CD-RW CED-80838
-Samsung DVD-ROM SD-612

The problem started happening after my power supply blew and I had it replaced. The message I get is "Please insert a disk into drive a:" (e: for the DVD). I've checked all the suggested things on the HP support site:
- device manager looks good
- uninstalled all 3 devices in device manager, all 3 reinstalled with the same config after restart.
- Secondary Master, Secondary Slave, Primary Slave look ok
- cables look good - the stuff above wouldn't show up otherwise would it?

The only thing that looks different to me is that the drive letters have changed from m: & n: to d: & e: for the CD-RW & DVD drives. Any thoughts appreciated!

A:Unable to access floppy and DVD-ROM drives

Welcome to TSG!

If your DVD will read CD's but not recognize DVD disks, then the optics are hosed for the DVD playback. A DVD Drive typically has 2 sets of optics or optics that rotate. If the DVD read optics are bad, that is what you'll get.

As for the floppy...odds are that it's gone too!

If the Power Supply went out, it may have spiked and damaged the drives. Just hope that the motherboard isn't bad.

If the system is still under warranty, have HP replace both drives due to the power supply spike. If replacements are done and still having issues, then it would be the Motherboard that got taken out!

Good Luck!

Hi I recently upgraded my PC to windows 10 and every since have been unable to access any USB external drive.

The laptop picks up the drives and acknowledges that they are there and working but they do not appear in file explorer.

I have looked in disk management and the drives are there and healthy.

The USB ports work 100% as i have plugged in keyboards etc to test and all the drives i've tried work with other computers.

I've tried everything I could find on forums that have worked for other people. I've reinstalled windows twice. Ran various disk cleanup utilities, checked for hidden drives etc.

I need to upload video files to my laptop to edit for work, so need to resolve this ASAP :/

Any help or ideas is greatly appreciated!

Hey there,

I've had this persistent problem since the beginning of January. Every time I try to open files/folders in, say, my documents, in shared folders, etc. my computer freezes and doesn't bounce back. I've let it sit for almost two hours to see if it'd work itself out, but it never does. This correlates with my Firefox browser freezing during random intervals and causing my entire system to lock up. I recall installing Adobe Photoshop CS3 around the same time this started happening, but I'm not sure if it's something that could cause this kind of reaction. I also have the addon "ljlogin" installed on Firefox, but thus far, I haven't found any discussions to imply that ljlogin could be detrimental to my system. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with all of the necessary updates. That made a difference for about two weeks, but now it's acting up again. It's also really hard to uninstall/reinstall things because the system locks up.

It's really tough not being able to access my files, but I can browse on Google Chrome without any issue (Unless I try to upload files from my PC). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

A:Solved: Unable to access XP network drives from XP PC

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Bizarre situation.

I have a laptop that has one active user account (Standard User). The administrator account is disabled, as is Guest.

All of the tutorials I've found for accessing the elevated Administrator account require an account with admin privs, which I don't have. All of the methods for enabling the administrator account require me to use another account with administrator privs, which I don't have.

I don't have access to the install media for this machine (it's my Mom's, no idea where she 'safely' stored them).

I used LiveCD to try and crack the administrator password, that shows the administrator account is disabled.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

PS - No, I don't have any idea how someone got the machine to this state. She lives in CO, and has 'helpful' neighbors who 'used to be technical'...

A:Unable to access Administrator, Win7

I have posted about this on another thread but OP hasn't tried it yet:

- Download and make bootable media for Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor (maybe you used this to reset password?)
- Boot with the media
- Change the registry as follows:
-- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\SetupType - set the value to 2
-- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\CmdLine - set the value to cmd.exe
- Restart the PC, it should open a command prompt
- Enter: net localgroup Administrators [UserLoginName] /add
-- where [UserLoginName] is your regular user account name, as in C:\Users\
- restart PC
- login with your own account, which should be now a local administrator

You can also try the next command if above doesn't work:
- net user Administrator /active:yes
- reset Administrator password with the above bootable media or some other similar program
- login with Administrator

I have 2 ADATA 500 GB external hard drives. I plugged them into the USB port and the computer recognized them by name and installed the driver files. It assigned both of them a drive letter but then gave me a message saying that they needed to be formatted. I clicked ok since they are brand new drives and do not have any data on them, but the format failed to complete on both drives. I took both drives to another PC running Windows Vista and they were recognized and accessible. I even transferred a few files to them for testing purposes; however, when I plugged them back into my Alienware laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, then I got the same error. If I go to the disk manager, then I can see the drives by their drive letter and they are listed as healthy with a primary partition but the file format shows as RAW. I tried to use the device manager and uninstall the USB Mass Storage Device drivers for each drive and then I unplugged them and plugged them in again and I would get a device driver installation message that identifies the drives by name and tells me that the device drivers were installed correctly and that my devices are ready for use but then a few minutes later I will get a message telling me to format the drives.

One evening I attempted to install windows 8. After the installation it repeatedly booted back into the windows installation. After removing the install disk, it booted into windows 7 normally. I decided to install a clean copy of windows 7 and that's when the problem appeared. The windows insall will not allow me access to ANY hard drive shown. Says unable to find windows partition or something like that. I've tried reformatting all the drives and same message always comes up. I cannot re-install Windows 7?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Unable to access Hard Drives in Windows 7 installation

It MIGHT be because Windows 8 installed as a GPT Partition...

But, Windows 7 and Vista can only see a GPT Partition as a non-booting data drive, unless using an UEFI BIOS.

Which MIGHT be why your Windows installation 'cannot see' an INSTALLABLE drive.

I would suggest Booting from a LINUX Bootable CD or USB Stick and reformat the Hard Drive to MBR,
i.e. delete the partition and recreate it as MBR and format to NTFS

Then reinstall Windows 7...

Hope this was helpful

Hello MdmRptr. Welcome to the forum.

ACL refers to a Access Control List. This is a type of file security protocol.
Access control list - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You may need to remove the ACL in order to access the files normally in Windows.

Looking up ACL brings up a lot of Oracle links. Are you - were you - using an Oracle product with these cards/files?
Using Access Control Lists (ACLs) (System Administration Guide, Volume 2)

If it was an Oracle product you could use the method to remove the ACLs here:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19253-01/...ji4/index.html

If you were using a Linux program you could start here to investigate the removal of the ACL in Linux:

First I've heard of ACLs. Maybe this info will help to point you in the right direction.

Did you mean to place those machines into different subnets?

To be in the same subnet the third octet would need to be the same on both machines plus matching workgroup names although the Domain's Group Policy may prevent sharing outside the Domain while connected to the Domain can only guess on that.

Hello,
I'm having a very annoying/difficult time accessing a folder that I had previously locked up using MyLockBox. Out of nowhere, I'm suddenly unable to access the folder. It's a folder of pictures, and I can view the previews. When I try to set ownership, it doesn't allow me to saying I don't have permission, even though I am the only administrator on the laptop.

I've tried System Restore, deleting MyLockBox (which was and is supposed to be a pretty handy program), reinstalling MyLockBox, going into Safe Mode and trying to obtain ownership, using the Take Ownership reg, amongst probably a few other things. No matter what I do, I am denied access to the folder/pictures. This is the ONLY folder effected so I can't help but think that MyLockBox has something to do with it since it was the ONLY folder I had locked up.

Obviously, it's pretty important stuff and I need to get this resolved somehow. Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated. I should let you all know ahead of time that I am not super knowledgable about the in's and out's of computers, but I've got a decent idea of what to do.

Thanks again in advance,
Alex

Did you set a password for the folder using Mylockbox?
Perhaps you should go to the Mylockbox forum here FSPro Labs Forum - View Forum - My Lockbox

Win 7, 64 bit, all the latest and greatest updates.

I have a curious problem. For years I have had a NAS running just fine: Drobo 5N. Last night, in fact, I accessed data without a problem. This AM I tried to access files on my Drobo 5N on a machine running Win 7 this AM and while I am able to find the Drobo, and I can display folders, the files in those folders are either listed as "This folder is empty" or there is a gray "X" adjacent to the folder with a message that says "Open Folder: XXX\TT\Folder 1\Folder 2\ file x 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."

Well, this is a home computer and I am the administrator. I have been using the the Drobo for a few years without this problem.

Now, the kicker is this: I can access all the files on this same NAS that I want on another computer running Win 10!

I think this must be an issue with Win 7 that has suddenly developed. Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this problem?

Thanks
Ken K

Here is the error message: (note the little gray "x"s that are displayed. I have never seen those before.

hi

i have changed the domain of the computer (from say old.net to new.net).
there is a folder shared on another machine on old.net domain. the user X was able to access it. aftter changing his domain from old.net to new.net he no longer can access that shared folder.
User X has working credentials for both domains.

on accessing it it asks for credentials. upon entering his correct user name in the format (old.net\X) he is not able to access it.

i had exactly same setup with another user Y and he was able to access data .

is there anything that i am missing ?

also accessing that folder first time asked for credentials but now it doesnt asks .. why ? there is nothign in credentials manager.

A:cannot access shared folder after changing domain with old domain cred

Hello,

Have you removed/re-added the User's credentials (from the PC with shared folder) with the new domain name?
Also, make sure that the shared folder has Everyone permission in the Security Tab.

Hi,

I have a domain joined windows 7pro (64bit) not able to connect to shared folder on a non domain joined pc with windows 7pro (32bit). Only public folders are accessible. I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

Does my domain admin have access to the homegroup and the shared folders on the home pc?

What are my options for access to a non public secure folder on the non domain pc from the domain joined pc.


Sorry for the awkward description, don't know how else to describe the situation.

my apologies if these questions were addressed elsewhere, I could not find any relevant threads.

Thanks

A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

Can I access a network share on the domain with a non-domain computer? I would connect the computer directly to the corporate network. 
For what reasons could this be blocked (firewall? policy? settings on server-side?) and what configuration is needed to make sure it is possible to access a network share with a non-domain computer?

Hello all,
After updating my Win 7 x64 Pro desktop with the most recent patches (2015.12.09) it shows all of my mapped networked drives as disconnected.  Two of the drives were samba shared folders on a Linux (OpenElec) RaspPi and one was the memory card of an
Epson printer.  When I attempt to remap the drives for the networked devices they no longer show up under the Network folder in Explorer.  When the devices' local IP addresses are entered into Explorer's address bar I receive the error "Windows

Many thanks to anyone who is able to point me in the right direction to resolve this issue.

I've researched for awhile now & can't seem to find which is the best way to add winxp functionality to my laptop. I have office xp professional, painter7 & photopaint8 software that worked fine on winxp 32 bit thru sp3.

New laptop is win7 home premium 64bit. Two 500gb hard drives.

Which is better- running the programs under win7 xp mode (ie upgrading to professional) OR installing winxp on the 2nd hard drive?

I am not a techie- but not totally pc ignorant. Any informed advice is truly appreciated.

A:dual boot win7 & winxp separate drives OR upgrade to win7 professional

Welcome to the forum,

Is your XP disc a retail disc?

Since you already have an XP disc, you could try out Windows Virtual PC Windows Virtual PC - Create Virtual Machine

You don't need to upgrade for that so it's free to try and you don't have to dual boot either.

There are other options too which I'm sure others can suggest.

If you have credentials for the company.com, you should have no problem connecting to the WiFi and utilizing available resources. That would all depend on the permissions and setup of the wireless, however.

What are the specific steps to take in order to map, say, 3 drives to all domain users when they logon. I have seen a few pages and they are all different, so if anyone has the exact script or steps (not a link) that'd be awesome.

Hello guys! I'm in the need of some assistance.

We currently run WinXP clients and are moving to Windows 7. One of my sticking points is getting Windows 7 to activate. During testing we used our MAK keys to activate but with the production rollout that's just not feasible. So, we'd like to use KMS activation however, I cannot get it configured and I don't know why.

I'd like to setup one of my 2008 R2 servers as my KMS host for both Server and Windows 7. I got the server to accept the 2008 R2 KMS key but it wouldn't take the Windows 7 key as well. MS Technet reads like I should be able to do this but maybe I'm mistaken.

I do have over the 25 minimum required, some MAK some KMS already. If I need to have 25+ KMS clients, I can easily convert them over but I can't figure out how to make my server a KMS Host for Windows 7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Hi,

At my office we have a domain based network with about 15 connected computers, all of them with Windows XP installed. Now we have installed a new computer with Windows 7 Professional, and connected it to the network. There is no problem to access shared files and printers from the Win7 machine, but no other computer on the network can access shared files on the Win7 machine. On any XP machine, I can see the Win7 machine among the other computers on the network, but when I try to access it an alert shows up, telling me that the computer isn't available (which it is).

On the Win 7 machine, in Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Advanced sharing settings, I have turned Network discovery, File and printer sharing and Public folder sharing on. (A weird thing is that I can't see an alternative to password protect shared files, but that's probably not the problem anyway since I'm not asked to type in a password when I try to access from a XP machine). And of course I'm not connected to any workgroup, but the domain we use on the network.

I hope I can get some help here. Thanks in advance!

Just curious. Are you using "homegroup" for networking? Homegroup uses IPv6 and is primarily designed for win 7 only networks. You can see if this is the problem by creating a new network connection using the workgroup model.

Let us know if you need help

hello, this is my first post.
We have just been sent a free computer for our office. A win7 HP 32bit.
We can login locally i think to a local user KB_SUF/User (where KB_SUF is the name of the computer)
however whenever the UAC comes up when installing anything, we cannot proceed because it keeps saying
"There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request"
The thing is they sent us the computer without removing it from the domain
Now I cant install the programs i need to work and it doesnt seem like theres a local admin on this computer.
I tried removing this computer from the domain but it requires going through UAC.
Is there any way to make this computer a Local only PC?

The company that sent us the computer is in another country and they say they can send someone over in 6 months which is longer than i can wait.

Hello,

I work in a company with almost 80 Windows 7 computer and another 200 or 250 Windows Xp computers in the domain, sometimes when users try to copy information to the File Server (Windows Server 2008) or to the network, the copy starts but never finish. It just stay there and the only way is to force the shut down to the computer and start over copying files one by one, this only happens in Windows 7 computers and does not always happen but it is very common

Is this a Know issue in Windows 7? What can be happening in our Network??

If I try to do the same copy locally on the computer the copy ends successfully, the problem only hapends when the copy is to the network (Just Windows 7 computers, Xp computers works fine)

Thank you all.

I would like to suggest you update the network card driver and run Windows Update to install all the important updates first.

If it does not work, I also would like to suggest you disable the automatic adjustment for the TCP window size on the network to check the issue.

1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

3. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
