Officelive sign-up (domain name)

Q: Officelive sign-up (domain name)

HELP please if you can.

I just signed up with officelive.com and purchased a domain name.

Because I was new to this, I inadvertently chose a ".com" instead of a ".org" that I initially had in mind.

I already paid the $14.95. They do not have a support number to call.

From doing a little reading, I think I have to purchase another domain name using the ".org".

If I cancel the original domain name, will they still take my $14.95, or merely transfer that payment to the new domain name, does anyone know please?

I know I made a huge mistake but I can't see paying $14.95 TWICE for the same domain name, only one with .com and one with .org.

THANK YOU.

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.)

School is starting, so I was asked to get a laptop from the school. I tried to sign into the credentials the school gave me at home, but it said my domain isn't available. here is the message word for word.
"We cant sign in with this credential because your domain isn't available. make sure your device is connected to your organizations network and try again. if you previously signed in on this device with another credential, you can sign in with that
credential."
I am stuck here and have no where to go. I would be greatly appreciated if you guys can help me out.
Thanks, Carlos

A previous GPO tech set these to be disabled by default and I can't figure out how to re-enable. The options stay greyed out no matter what I try. I don't want to remove the settings to disable from the default policy so I have created an additional GPO for certain PCs to have it enabled and I'm just trying to find all of the settings to get this working again for the approved users.

This is what I have set currently...
In Computer -> Policies -> Admin Templates:
System/Logon -> Turn on PIN sign-in = Enabled
Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow domain users to log on using biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow users to log on using biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Biometrics -> Allow the use of biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work -> Use biometrics = Enabled
Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work -> Use Microsoft Passport for Work = Enabled

Any suggestions are most welcome

As of today, in our domain environment consisting of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Enterprise machines, we are experiencing the "User Profile service failed the sign-in - User profile cannot be loaded" error message whenever a user tries to login.
This only affects users new to the particular machine. If they have signed on before and already have a cached account the computer logs them in with no issue. This is occurring on both Win8.1 and Win7 machines. We are an academic institution so this is becoming
a huge problem in our labs. Students generally use different computers so this is popping up very frequently. I have a solution for the issue. It appears that on the non-working machines that the "Default" user profile is corrupt. I have discovered
that if I find a machine, Win8.1 or Win7, doesn't matter, that is allowing first time users to logon I can copy the "Default" user profile and replace the corrupt one. I must first permanently delete the corrupt profile before copying over the new
one. I am doing this over the network by navigating the C:\users\ folder. Even this way is becoming cumbersome though as we have over 1000 computer in labs. I have googled and googled and I keep seeing the same answers offering various solutions, none which
are any more practical than my method. I cannot find information on a cause or a reason of why this would just crop up out of nowhere. I suspect maybe a Windows update but I cannot verify that yet. ... Read more

You have recently removed one or more virusus from this computer, but now a new one has appeared.

First, AOL is extremely slow to start when I click on the icon. Once I've signed on, after a time a new sign-on screen appears on top of what I'm doing. I cancel that one. Soon I see activity at the bottom of the screen (where ordinarily you see "Done" or "//http:/..." etc. The virus is doing its own AOL activity!

After having done the update, I'm having two issues that are bugging me:

1. I cannot change the lock screen from the "cave by the shore" default nor bypass it (Brink is working on the bypass issue I believe)

2. If I go into netplwiz and uncheck the need for a password, the "Welcome" screen has the system default user picture, that drawing of a circle over an arch, not the picture I assigned to the account. With the need for a password, the picture on both the sign-in screen and "Welcome" screen is correct tho.

The lock screen issue I can live with since I normally don't use a password, but the default user picture is bugging me. I went into %ProgramData%\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and replaced all the default pictures with ones the same name and size of the picture that I have for the account, but it still shows the default.

I've searched around for another place where the default picture is, but cannot find any, even with the search including hidden system files.

Anybody know where the system default user pictures are stored, other than in the User Account Pictures?

Hey everyone

Every now and then my Windows 8.1 x64 shows the first sign-in sequence after a restart. I noticed it most recently happened after a normal Start->Power Options->Restart. I'm quite sure it has also happened after right clicking on start button (Control-X) and restarting from there, as well as from a custom shortcut I have for restart (shutdown.exe /r /t 00).

I had just finished installing IBM SPSS 22 for a class I'm taking, but I think this is unrelated.
It goes through the whole "Setting Up Your PC" and "Installing your apps" screens even though its perfectly fine and and all my data including app data is still there. See the attached file for an example of what was most noticeably shown.

With another incident, something similar to this happened but it actually reset some of my settings for things like MediaMonkey, Connectify Hotspot, GOM Player and VLC player. It was like they had been started for the first time ever with no license information or preferences like Always on Top.

Its not a matter of urgency but I keep worrying that one day it will actually mess with my system in a very annoying way.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

So I just reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine.

Before I had it set up so that I could log in with a password or fingerprint.

Now it seems my only options are (1) password only OR (2) password, PIN or fingerprint.

I don't want PIN as a sign in option. But I have to enable PIN via "Windows Hello" before enabling Fingerprint sign in.

And once I have fingerprint sign in enabled, if I remove the PIN I lose both PIN and fingerprint sign in options.

Any ideas how I can set up password and fingerprint as my only two sign in options?

Hello,
Currently we are in the middle of a migration project. We are migrating users from child domains to the root domain of one organization.
The user accounts are migrated with powershell using Move-ADObject cmdlet. This works as expected. The SIDHistory attribute is updated correctly.
Recently we received complaints from some *migrated* users - they lost their default/custom file associations. This happens only on Windows 8/Windows 8.1.
What happens:

the user is migrated and logs onher profile loads and everything's preserved (as expected)the user clicks on a .jpeg file (previously associated with program XYZ)OS asks the user to choose a program to open the file withthe user chooses a default program XYZ and the file openswhen the user clicks on a .jpeg file again - OS asks to choose a program again
i.e. the settings are not preserved.

Our investigation shows that it is connected with the UserChoice registry key and the HASH value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.SomeExt

According to this blog 
the HASH is calculated based on user's SID. But after the migration the user has new SID and the HASH becomes invalid and we hit this:

Hello everyone,

We are running into a somewhat peculiar issue that I have been unable to find any information about and I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.



Several of our Windows 7 laptops (We're working on moving to W10) have become unable to change the password for a domain account from the Change a Password screen after hitting CTRL ALT DEL. Usually when someone would select to change their password,
it would take them to the text boxes with the domain\username pre-populated, I'm sure you are familiar.

Recently, when following the same steps, an account selection screen comes up with the option to use a smart card or simply type in the username. While we are working on implementing smart cards, they are not yet in use and in fact should not even
show any options for them yet. After opting to type in a user account, rather than populating the username field with domain\username, the field remains blank with grey text saying "provider\user name" instead. If the user types in their domain\username
and attempts to change the password, they get a generic error stating it is unable to change the password.



Users are still able to use a co-workers machine to change their password from the same screen by substituting the username. Most of the affected machines are from users that work in the same team, even though those same users can change their passwords
elsewhere just fine. It appears to be isolated to specific ... Read more

Hi,

I hit major problems yesterday when a power surge killed my server (despite ups/surge protection!). We have a small set up of 15 win2k machines and one Windows server 2003 all connected under a domain.

Basically all user machines were unaffected but my only method of getting us up and running was installing a fresh version of 2003 server on a new machine. i followed this guide and configured it to use the same domain as last time (hoping that all the client machines would carry on as they were before the server out). i've managed to set up access to shared drives hosted on the network. That is working.

However i am now having these problems on all client machines

Client machines cannot connect to shared printers from another client machine. - Logging on as an administrator to their machine locally (not domain) you can add and print. Simply changing their policies to admin does not allow them access.
Each machines is still connected to the domain (so it says) but if you take them off and try to put them back on the domain i get this error:the following error occurred attempting to join the domain " ". network path was not found

B) Connects to domain network at some point before connecting to an outside network and using VPN: Might be in use error, attached.

A:VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

Sounds more like the network the VPN connection puts you in has trouble making kerberos connections to domain controllers, but NTLM connections work fine (kerb might be blocked). The errors are likely bogus if you can get #1 to work - if the computer is connected to a domain it's going to want to use Kerb before NTLM, and if the machine still has (what it thinks is) a viable kerb ticket, it's going to try and validate that with a DC (to achieve auth), and if this fails, so does the connection.

This may not actually be the case, of course, but it sure has the symptoms of it.

We have been getting sporadic reports from our users of the error, "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."  The workaround has been to dejoin and rejoin the domain, but it keeps happening and we need a permanent
fix.  We are primarily a laptop shop.
It has been suggested we disable the automatic machine accouint password change on our domain members in GPO.  While this may be a viable option with relatively low security risks, I'd really like to figure out why it's happening and try to
fix it. 
The machines can lose the trust relationship at random.  It can happen overnight, or after going into hibernation.  I've had it happen to me a few times.  The DCs (we have 2) both show error 5722, but one is spitting out a specific Kerberos
error that the other one is not:

While processing an AS request for target service krbtgt, the account kriegesh did not have a suitable key for generating a Kerberos ticket (the missing key has an ID of 2).
The requested etypes : 18. The accounts available etypes : 23  -133  -128  3  1. Changing or resetting the password of kriegesh will generate a proper key.
My main issue is trying to determine why this continues happening and if we can resolve it without disabling the account password.  If that IS our best option, then so be it.  Any
thoughts are welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!  ~Sarah

When you say local credentials I assume you mean local on the "TestServer", not local on the Windows 7 box.

over the last several months the computer is turned on and the user does not get the domain login screen but boots right to local desktop.  This computer is no longer connected to the domain.
I assumed the user did something so I put the computer back on the domain.  I logged in as user and it created a new profile.  All programs that I installed were not there including Office products, AV products etc.  Could not find any reference
on the hard drive that they ever were there.  This user now has username.000 001 002 etc.  When I put the pc back onto the domain I also copy documents from the previous profiles that I have found.  All profiles will have the same date which
corresponds when the issue presents itself. 
Restore points are not there.  Windows updates are run as if this is a new machine out of the box.  I am completely baffled. All help is appreciated.

Hello everyone.

A while back before I knew better I gave a client of mine an active directory domain that ended in .org and did not exist on the internet at the time. Now, I'm discovering in the DNS event log at regular intervals errors about how the computers in the internal domain are unable to register in the DNS server of the web domain of the same name. So, my question is whether there is something I can do to change the Active Directory domain so that I don't get those errors anymore.
They're running Windows 2003 server standard with Active Directory, roaming profiles, routing and remote access for VPN, DHCP server, standard fileserver, and print server. I may have missed one or two things but likely I haven't. The server has itself as the primary DNS server though it's not the 127 address it's the actual IP. The secondary server is the router but I have the DHCP giving out the servers for opendns.com as options 3 and 4 after the Domain Controller and the router but I had the problem before adding the opendns.com entries.
Anyone know why the local DNS server is trying to register entries in the DNS server of the web domain? Anyone have any ideas on how I can go about fixing it?
Thanks

Joe

P.S. if this is a question more appropriate for another area feel free to move it.

Ok, I'm currently being hosted with Dreamhost.com, but my domain is with FXDomains.com. How do I make it so that the domain I have at FXDomains.com will work like the domain I have at Dreamhost.com, for example FXDomains.com provides me with the domain x.com, however Dreamhost.com provides me with y.com. I want to make it so that when someone goes to x.com, it behaves like y.com, such as x.com/forums would go the same place as y.com/forums It's not domain forwarding, it's something ro do with DNS or something. I changed my FXDomains.com's DNS thing to NS1.DREAMHOST.COM, NS2.DREAMHOST.COM & NS3.DREAMHOST.COM so what do I do now?

Hi everyone!
Noticed, that if I try to access a shared folder located on domain computer from non-domain computer, typing \ \ computername\sharename, pop-up authentication window appears after some time (30-80 sec). But, if I type \\computername  without pointing
sharename, pop-up authentication window appears instantly.
If I run created shortcut for this share - pop-up authentication window appears instantly.
I can easily reproduce this problem, it appeared on all machines I was testing.

Can it be fixed somehow? In my scenario, I can not use net use cmd.
Thanks.

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.

I've been trying to join a new Windows 7 Professional machine to a domain controller running Windows 2003 Server with no luck.  We currently have 4 Windows XP machines running on that domain without any issues, but when I try to add the Windows 7 computer,
here is what happens:

A computer account on the domain could not be found (confirmed it is already there)
I put in the computer name and domain again, and Administrator credentialsNow it tells me: "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed."
I currently have DNS on the Windows 7 PC set to the Domain Controller and have IPv6 unchecked under Network Properties.  I can even ping the domain name (resolves to IP of the domain controller).  It looks like it can, indeed, find the domain from
the message in step 1, so am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

Hi,
You need flush your DNS cache in client side first.
Then, let?s create the following registry value for a try:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManWorkstation\Parameters
 
 - Created a DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
 - Created a DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0
Reboot the machine and check the result again.Alex Zhao

the windows 7 machine is connected through wifi to the office internet. and windows 8.1 machine has not internet our outside access.
i have a lan cable. i connected it to both pcs and gave ip 192.168.1.2/24 and 192.168.2.3/24 to other (no dns no default gateway etc)

this way i could ping each other and i could see the shared folder (which resides on win8.1 machine ) but i couldnt access it ..

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.

I have an employee that gets this upon every boot on his assigned laptop. I have utterly no idea what it means or how to correct it. Help needed please.
 

A:Error: Domain controller could not be found for the specified domain.

Check the machine account. You might also delete it and recreate it. This may require a domain admin to rejoin the machine to the domain.

Hello everyone. I really hope that you can help me. You are my last hope.

I maintain about 30 domain computers. Recently when users try to log in on most of them the following error appears frequently:

"Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. if the message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance."

I have seen that this error appears only in the computers with Windows XP and not in the computers with Windows Vista or 7. We have 2 domain controllers.

Please let me tell you about the ways I tried to resolve this problem and their results:

- on some computers, after several restarts the users are able to log in, but if they restart or shutdown after that the error appears again; this worked for some computers, but I do not know if the error will appear again in the future.
- on some computers, when i disabled the windows firewall or allowed all kind of ICMPs it was resolved, but this did not work for all the computers and I do not know if the error will appear again in the future.
- I unjoined and then rejoined some computers from the domain and it was resolved but after restarting the error appears again.
- If I unplug the network cable the users can log in but after restart the error appears again.
- I have tried to reset the user password and computer on the Active Directory for some users and... Read more

PC was on Windows home version. It was upgraded to Windows Pro but it made us install the anniversity update before we could upgrade.

Joined the computer to the domain with no issue. After reboot we could not log in with the domain user account. Tried other domain accounts too, even domain admin account. It say username or password is incorrect but that is not true.

Tried to unjoin and rejoin to the domain no luck.

Confirmed dns settings on the PC. Using wired connection. Not going through a VPN connection or anything like that.

I am set up on a domain from an old work server that no longer exists and I want to switch back to a non-domain setup (XP Pro). I am worried that I might lose all of my data/settings/etc. Is there a certain procedure I should follow to make the change?

My Desired Outcome:

1) Change the name of my computer.
2) Remain the administrator
3) Keep all the data and settings as they are in my existing user account
4) Ditch the domain (and cached login profile) I am currently using
5) Get rid of useless drive mappings
5) Still use a user/pass to login (for security purposes)

This is my personal laptop and I am the local admin on my pc. I had the admin login on the domain, but the server no longer exists.

A:How Do I Switch From Domain To Non-domain?, without losing my data

I had the admin login on the domain, but the server no longer exists.stravs,Ok let's get started on this. You said you are the local administrator on your laptop, good you need to be! Now even though the laptop is not accessing the server anymore you can still login to the domain administrator account, if someone has logged into that account before. Basically if the domain administrator has signed onto that laptop when it was on the server at one point, the system will remember the cached password for that account. You won't really need it as long as you have the local administrator login.Just a thought, do you have access to another computer and the internet, or are you using this laptop to sign on here and get instructions? If this laptop is your only means for getting on the net, I would print these instructions out.1) You will want to rem... Read more

I have PCs sitting in a shared area and I would like to prevent users from different domain to logon to my computers. How do I do that with GPO? I searched internet and they suggested "Deny logon locally" I don't think that applies to
my case. Said, my users from DomainOne, I don't want users from DomainTwo, DomainThree, etc to logon and use my department computers.
Thanks,
