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.)

Hi ngkeith,

You can use Netmeeting to share the desktop of the remote computer (need administrator priviledges) and you connect with Netmeeting to the remote computer.
You will get the desktop of the remote computer from where you may execute tasks.

Issue: I have a Windows 7 client that will not activate via the command slmgr.vbs /ato nor through the Volume Activation Management Tool.

Error: 0x800706BA Unable to connect to the WMI service on the remote machine
Troubleshooting:  I have added the workstation via ip address and tried to activate since I read that it could be a DNS issue. I also ran a script that was supposed to repair the WMI.  Neither tries fixed it.

I've got an older machine (older P4) which runs win 2000 which has decided not to get through start up anymore. I've tried safemode and even that doesn't work. All it does it go through as if it will start up, then turn to a blue screen. Anyone know how I can get it to start, so I can do something with it? ie. format the drive?

A:WIN 2000 machine won't start up

Hi, Blue screen errors can be very difficult to fix...
If you'd like to try, can you post the error message?

What is most important is what the name of the problem is, like this "gem" I had recently on XP>

STOP C000021A (Fatal system error)

The Session Manager initialization system process terminated unexpectedly with Status:
0xC000026C (0x00000000)
If you don't have anything you need to save on the hard drive, you should be able to set your CDROM drive as the first boot priority in your BIOS setup and then put the win2k CD into the drive, save and exit the BIOS, and when it boots to the CD, follow what it says on screen to format and reinstall the win2k operating system. Repairing the install may or may not work, in my opinion a clean install is best. You may need drivers for some of the hardware!

(if it is a branded system, go to the support site for help)
You may have a CD or two that came with the PC...?
They may have drivers for things like the motherboard chipset, onboard hardware....in any case, you can find the devices by opening the case up and physically checking the chips or cards.

You could install that hard drive in another 2k or XP system if it uses NTFS filesystem to get any files you may need to save. Install it as a SLAVE drive, Windows Explorer should see it, copy or move any files to another media or hard drive.

There are many good sites with step by steps for reinstalling let me know if you would like some.

I need to get the Webclient service running on a Windows 7 Pro machine so I can interact properly with a Sharepoint 2007 site in Internet Explorer (11).  The Webclient service is set to automatic, but it will not start and gives a 1053 error immediately
when attempting to start it manually.
Please help, I am absolutely at my wits' end trying to fix this.  Without the Webclient service, I can't interact with Sharepoint in "Explorer mode".  
After reviewing some similar-themed threads here, I'd like to add:
1) I have checked the make sure the Local Service user has write privileges to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\
2) I have run "sfc /scannow" and it came back with zero problems.
3) The event log shows two events whenever I attempt to start the Webclient service. One is ID 7000 basically saying the service did not respond in a timely manner. Second is ID 7009 stating a timeout of 30000 milliseconds was reached waiting for the service
to start.  I can tell you with confidence that nowhere near 30 seconds pass between my service start command and the response back that it failed... the failure comes in closer to 1 second.
4) I have verified that the Webclient DLL file exists and appears to be up to date, as does its dependency, the WebDAV driver file.
Thank you.

I have a couple of workstations that will not connect to https://dav.box.com/dav. It will not bring up the username and password. Have been working with Box.com support but still nothing works. These machines belong to a Windows domain and there were policies
on them but I have removed one of the machines form the domain to try and figure out what might be the issue. Things I?ve tried, removed AV, dropped the firewall, took the machine to a different network, nothing worked.

In doing some investigation, I see that the WebClient service is not running, nor can I get it started. I don?t know if this is where the problem is but I?m thinking so.

Is this a registry issue? Any ideas and suggestions?

Remote Desktop service has stopped working suddenly on my computer. I can't start Remote Desktop Services (TermService) because it depends on "Terminal device driver" (TermDD) service. And it seems it cannot start because there are exclamation marks
at "Terminal Server Keyboard Driver" and "Terminal Server Mouse Driver" in Device Manager. I tried to reinstall these devices but it didn't help. The error message says: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver
may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39). During reinstallation of the driver for both devices there is
CM_PROB_DRIVER_FAILED_LOAD error in installer logs. I don't think it's really the driver problem. I have termdd.sys in my system and it is in correct version. I observed that when I run Windows in safe mode both devices work correctly and there are no
exclamation marks. Therefore I suppose there is some conflict with other driver or something.
I don't remember changing anything in the system related to Remote Desktop. The only thing I recall is that I have accidentally removed "UMBus Root Bus Enumerator". I have reinstalled it later but it didn't help.

A:Remote Desktop service doesn't start

Sorry for the late reply.
Let?s see this picture:

I suggest you uninstall the device first (create a system restore point before), then use my method to install the device.
How it works?

I am trying to execute psexec command to remote machine.
My command is
psexec -u domain\user -p password \\machineName -c abc.bat
I am trying from windows 7(64 bit)  machine. The remote machines are xp and windows 7(32 and 64 bit).
In XP machines, it is working and also in some windows 7 machines. But in some windows 7 machines it give message-
"Could not start PsExec service on target machine.
Access is denied."
If I try to execute psexec command from XP machines, it works to all machines.
Suddenly what happen I do not know but one of the windows 7 machine( where psexec was not starting) , psexec started. but not in other machines.
Now I am very much confuse here exactly what happen. and what is the issue.
Please help. It urgent.

A:Could not start PsExec service on target machine. Access is denied.



When opening the Command Prompt, please right click it and run as Administrator. Meanwhile, make sure the user has administrator privileges on target PC. If the issue
persists, try to disable UAC on both sides.


As far as I know the Security Level on Windows 7 is higher than the level on Windows XP.  Therefore, 'psexec' works to all machines.

is manuall and in Win10 it is even disabled. So is it secure to start this service? Anything to consider?

Two of our clients are Laptops that are also used on public WLANs. Is it ok to let the service enabled on an foreign network if the windows interal firewall is enabled?

Hi techguys,

I am running Windows XP SP1, AMD Athlon XP 2600+, with 1GB or RAM. I recently purchased an X-micro bluetooth adapter. What I want to do transfer some freeware applications to my Samsung D500 cellular phone.

I access my Network Connection, and choose to create an advanced connection to another computer directly, using COM5 (the port set aside for bluetooth). When I get to the Network Connection Wizard's Host or Guest Page, I select my computer as host, and I click Next. The computer thinks for a bit, and eventually, I get presented with an error saying "Incoming Connections depends on the Routing and Remote Access service which was unable to start.". I checked the Event Viewer and got this message:

"The Routing and Remote Access service terminated with service-specific error 340 (0x154)."

I have checked on the Internet for solutions, the majority say that I should check that NetBIOS is enabled in my TCP/IP network settings. This I have done, and it is indeed enabled. The problem still persists. I am unsure what other services Routing and Remote Access depends on.

A friend mentioned that it might indeed be a problem with SP1, and that I should reinstall it. This seems a rather drastic solution though.

Would anyone kindly help me with this problem? I would be most grateful.

PS: In Event Viewer, I also found another error but I am unsure how it is related to the above problem. The error is for perflib and says:

Hi all,

I recently had an issue with my new Razer Blade Pro machine; this is what happened (as I'm unable to access my machine, I have specs as per my invoice).

I've had this machine for a few weeks and I keep it fairly up to date, i.e. Windows updates, video card drivers, etc. One night, I was using this as per normal and I was moving from my dining room to my bedroom. I did not shut down, I just closed my lid and moved it to my bedroom. When I opened the lid, I saw a blue screen of death, relating to the System Service Exception. Then it restarted.

I didn't think this was a major problem, but when it restarted again, it arrived at the same BSOD, disabling me from actually getting into my Windows 8 OS. I tried using the advanced start up options, but the only thing that appeared to work was to boot in safe mode, which I did. I then looked up the symptoms of my BSOD and discovered that many users also experienced similar or the same issue. Anyway, because I was not having any luck whatsoever in trying to resolve this issue, I decided to manually back up my data and do a factory setting system restore. Backed up to my external HD, no problem. Restarted, went to the Razer system restore facility and proceeded to reset my machine.

When that completed, it provided a count down to restart and boot up for the first time again. However, upon booting up, I arrived at the same BSOD; System Service Exception. As such, I am unable to do the first time start up for Win... Read more

I installed some patches on a Windows 2000 Server the other day, all from Microsoft. Now when I boot the machine, I get an error that some services could not be started, and my backup software (Veritas Backup Exec 10d, now owned by Symantec) cannot start. The "Backup Exec Server" service is the one giving me the problem:

"Could not start the Backup Exec Server service on Local Computer. The service did not return an error. This could be an internal Windows error or an internal service error. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator."

My Google search lead me to some pages that agree to try a couple of things, but I run into problems:

1) C:\Program Files\Veritas\Backup Exec\NT> regsvr32 schedmgrur.dll

2) Go to Add/Remove Programs and repair Backup Exec installation.

So now I am stuck and not sure what else to try. Looking for troubleshooting ideas. Appreciate any help.

Whenever I try to start "Routing and Remote Access", I get an error telling me:
Windows cannot start the Routing and Remote Access service on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-M$ service, please contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 340.
OK, so I go to the Event Log, and it doesn't really help all that much, telling me pretty much what I was just told in that alert window:
The Routing and Remote Access service terminated with service-specific error 340 (0x154).

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
Blah blah blah. So, I figure that there is a service or something stopping "Routing and Remote Access" from starting. I look around for a little, and I am correct. It is dependent on NetBIOS Group-(Ascfrna and the NetBIOS Interface) and Remote Procedure Call RPC. RPC is enabled and started, but Ascfrna isn't. So I try to start it, but it fails, saying it can't the specified file in the specified path (file name/path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\nwlnkspx.sys). BUT when I go to that directory, the file is there. YES!? No. It is compressed to save space. Horray for XP, compress a necessary file. So I uncompress it, restart and see if that does anything. Nada. Help?

I'm running a Dell Inspiron 600m with Windows XP, SP3.

I turned on my computer on Friday morning to find that my Network Connections windows was entirely blank - not showing that my local and wireless connection were broken, but rather not registering them at all. My local connection had been inactive for a while due to an internal issue, but I had resolved it the day before by purchasing and installing StarTech.com's USB 2.0 to 10/100 Mbps Ethernet adapter, which worked perfectly for one day until this problem arose (it may have been the first time that I restarted the computer after the adapter was installed - don't recall exactly - although I restarted the computer several times over the course of the installation process). I deleted and reinstalled all of my network drivers - for my broken ethernet connection, for the adapter, and for my wireless connection - but nothing changed.

Upon navigating my system, I discovered a litany of other problems with it:

* Whenever I booted up, my taskbar would be locked into the position where all that's visible is a thin line at the bottom of the screen (one step beyond the default). I worked around this problem by adding a toolbar, which caused the taskbar to expand, and then removing it, following which the taskbar stayed in place. The toolbar font looks different, perhaps somewhat similar to that of an old version of Windows.

* When I ran a Symantec quick scan, nothing came up. When I ran a full scan, ... Read more

Hello all,

I have a new machine (self assembled), and after two weeks I now experience regular BSODs (System Service Exeption). Most of them have happened while using Cubase, a music software which is somewhat resource intesive. It's the only more resource intesive program I've used regularly so I'm not sure if the error is global or related to this particular program. It usually happens so that the functioning of the program becomes sluggish and then after a while the BSOD appears. Attached you'll find the crashdump just extracted from my system.

I have a Compaq Evo N200, which is an ultracompact notebook and has neither a floppy disk drive nor a CD one. Last week after a Windows update I rebooted my laptop and got this error message: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMced".

Having no CD drive I couldn't run the Compaq Quick Restore CDs that came with my laptop. I borrowed an external floppy drive from a friend and downloaded Windows 2000 Setup floppy disks from the internet. I attached the external floppy drive to my laptop. Luckily the laptop booted from the external drive and loaded the Setup disks. I got to the Recovery Console and rename system and system.alt files as directed by Microsoft (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/269075), but when I went to the c:\winnt\repair folder, I couldn't find a system file there and there's not a regback subfolder either as I had never run the Emergency Repair Disk Wizard (I'm really angry with myself for this).

There was, however, a system.bak file in the repair folder. I decided to give it a try and copied it to the c:\winnt\system32\config folder and renamed it as system.

Then I rebooted my laptop. This time I didn't see the error message but it started the Windows 2000 Setup process and asked me for the Windows 2000 Product Key! When I bought this laptop there was no Windows 2000 CD coming with it. There are two Compaq Quick Restore CDs, but there is no Product Key on the... Read more

Hello all,

I have been having a problem with my PC for the last ...uhh... couple of years where it will randomly, without warning, reboot itself. I cannot correlate any rhyme or reason for when it occurs, and sometimes it happens several times per day, and sometimes just once. The message in the event viewer that occurs just as the system reboots itself is "The MCSTRM service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified." - I googled this and found that it was connected to Rhapsody, which I promptly uninstalled. This alleviated the problem COMPLETELY for about a week and a half, until two days ago when it began all over again. I had not installed or uninstalled anything when the change occurred. Here is my HijackThis log (I'm not sure if you need this but I saw other topics include this).

Hello. Ok here is the problem I recently installed Windows 2000 aka Win2k Service Pack 3. Today I tried installing Trend Micro PC-Chillin 2000 for Win2k/NT OS. Everytime I run the install it gets almost complete and then it "rools back and cancels." Can somebody tell me why it does this? How to correct it? Plz somebody.

Here is the Cut & Paste from the Event Viewer.

Event Category: None
Event ID: 7000

Hi all having another head scratcher, I recently built a new computer a few weeks ago and everything has been running smooth up an till a few days ago.

I have this issue where if the computer is left doing nothing for around 10 mins it freezes up completely and cannot get into it without holding in the power button to power it off and let it boot up again, what is frustrating is that i could be working on it for hours with a bunch of heavy applications running like adobe cs or running games like bf3 and it will be fine but as soon as it goes idle for a short period it freezes?

It also happened a few moments ago, but this time it was as soon as I powered the computer on and logged in.

I have searched through the event viewer and there appears to be a pattern every time this happens I get the following error message

The AODDriver4.2 service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.

A few days i was getting this once before the freeze but now it appears twice in the logs.

There was also another one, but I think I have fixed it as it has not appeared in the event viewer in the last two crashes.

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

I have done a bit of research on the AODDriver 4.2 service, and apparently it is linked to my ATI graphics card somehow but there is not alot of posts on the net about this issue. I have included a screenshot of my amd vision engine information.

Hello All,

I have a situation where I need to map a network drive on a remote server so that a scheduled installation can tale place from the mapped drive. For scheduling the installation I used the Schtasks.exe which has an option to create the scheduled task on a remote machine too using :

Schtasks.exe /create /S <remote computer name>

What I am interested in knowing is if there is any EXE file that can help me map a network drive on a remote computer in the same manner as schtasks.exe as there is no option for doing it in net.exe that is used for mapping a network drive. To avoid confusion let me put up :

machine that I want to map the network drive upon : ABC
Server on which i need to map the network drive upon : XYZ
Network path to be mapped : \\PQR

A:Using Net Use on a remote machine

Hi rahul1911,

The procedure should be possible. Here's a tutorial that may help as it contains additional commands and addresses share issues: How-To Map a Network Drive using Windows 7, Vista or Windows Server 2008.

I hope this helps. If not, check to make sure the server is sharing properly and that permissions are set to allow this to occur (you aren't prohibited from Group Policy or Active Directory) and/or that you are using an appropriate username and/or password if required.

Good luck!

I recently switched my main computer over to Linux (from Win8), and everything is working fine, except that when I would remote into the computer from my other computer (running Win7), it was much faster when running Win8. Since I upgraded to Linux, I can connect, but the screen refreshes at a much slower rate, even over the same connection (LAN speed).

Anyone know of any settings either on the Win7 side or on the Linux server side that I can change to speed things up?

I have one very powerful PC that I would like to use as a VM server, and then I have a netbook and a HP pavilion dv2000 laptop that I would like access the VMs. My ideal setup would be to have my main machine running Windows 7 and have two virtual machines running Windows 7 that would be accessed and used by the netbook and notebook across the network, this would allow the two mobile PCs to make use of the main PC's sizable resources while still being three different machines that can be used by three different people. The reason I want to do this is that I have a lot of people who want to use the computer, but only one that runs Windows, has Office, and is very powerful. Any help on this topic would be appreciated.

A:Remote Virtual Machine

Problem: The VMs would not have office unless you could install it in each VM and that means a separate product key.

Also, each instance of Win 7 would need it's own product key since you can't run the same one in a virtual machine.

Other than that it sounds doable running Win 7 guests under Oracle VirtualBox. Just set the networks up as Bridged so they get their IP address from the same router, then setup port forwarding to a VNC server running in each VM. TightVNC is a good choice.

I don't think you will be very happy with the performance though. Even with Gigabit network adapters it will be slow.

It would be fun to try though.

Helloo I'm having a problem with connecting my Windows 7 laptop to my Windows XP Pro machine. I have my router at home (where the XP machine is) port forwarded for Remote Desktop, I set up the XP machine completely for connecting to by allowing exceptions for the Remote Desktop.

When on my Win 7 machine I type in the IP address and port and it gets me to the log in screen where it gives me the username (Matt) and I enter my credentials (password). After entering it and clicking OK it brings me back to the log in screen. Over and Over. Does anyone have an idea of what I may have done wrong? I can post a link of the site I used to set it up.

I am interested in turning my PC to a remote machine (like a dedicated/rootserver) but to be able to start up and shut down my PC w/e I want remotely. Also I would like not to change my OS (windows) in order to achieve that, if it's possible of course. The whole thing has to do with my business trips (I have to travel around and change places) so I need to turn my home PCs into remote machines in order to be able to control them from my laptop. I searched a bit and I found this Home but I would like to find a way with windows.

Problem: As a member of the security team, I am not a member of the IT team. Therefore do not have access to physical lists of a given machine.

The easy solutions are-1. Ask IT for the list of machine names, 2. Ask someone physically at the location to look for the users cubical and tell me the machine name (located on the ID tag)

Issue: Examine the contents of a workstation somewhere on our intranet.
Known Data: Username, server, server profile, physical address (big deal), personal storage on the LAN. Every workstation on the intranet has a unique identifier assigned by IT and placed on label on the physical case. Connecting remotely is permissible for my position.

Question. Is there a way to look on the local server (remotely) and determine the IP or machine name from a profile stored on the server or any other identifying characteristics to help me map to this workstation.

The problem with my "easy solutions" are that IT is NOT security, asking anyone opens the door to multiple questions that cannot be answered during an active investigation, and the separation of management (which I am classified as) and the workers prohibits them from assisting. Last resort, if there is no way to virtually accomplish this, is to contact the manager of the office to physically look at the workstation.

Thanks for your help,

As someone who is working towards a bachelors degree in computer networking, I have a half decent understanding (or so I thought) of how the internet works. But today... today my mind was blown. I knowingly downloaded something for a game that was a bit sketchy, fully aware that there was a 90% chance a keylogger came packaged with it, didn't concern me that much. I tend to be a bit reckless with my machine because just about every virus I've ever come across I can take care of with relative ease (and heck virus removal offers a weird thrill). Throw in a Hiren's boot CD, run trusty old MBAM, TDSS killer etc. and smash malware with an iron fist. Not to mention I tend to re install my OS every two months because I make such a mess of my file system I figure its best I start anew, and continue to dump everything to desktop.
So here's the story of what happened today, I'm playing my game and having a blast when all of a sudden it closes. I figure "Hey, the game just crashed that's pretty lame". Upon attempt to run the game again and log in I was confronted with a "Password is incorrect" message, at this point I knew what was going on, got keylogged and someone was in the process of trying to cause havoc with the account. I giggled a bit, then proceeded to go to the website and push a password reset request through my email, since the email had a different password I wasn't too concerned. Upon logging into my email to confirm the password reset... Read more

I am trying to RD into a machine that I can ping. RD fails with the generic "this computer can't connect to the remote computer" message. I checked and the remote machine does have the "allow other to connect to this machine via RD" checkbox checked. Furthermore I was able to RD to it about a month ago. Not sure what has changed since then. Where should I look? Thanks.
