Preferred Solution: Server Issue

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 Coop-Show. The only thing I see in the log that is questionable is:E:\hi.exeDo you know what this is? if not then terminate the process and delete the file.If you are unsure then do the following:Go to the Jotti's malware scan page and use the buttons at the top of the page to browse to this file(s) on your hard drive to submit for a scan:E:\hi.exeSeveral scanning engines will be used to check the file for any threats. Please post the results of the scans back here.Cheers.OT

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

I've seen the complaints about this problem but with no clear resolution. There are some hot fixes listed that may help, updating to Windows 7 SP1 is supposed to help in some cases but nothing seems for certain.

No way for me to recreate this problem but apparently others have the same problem.

The following Structure is a representation;
SRV1 - IP - FQDN SRV1.DOM.LOCAL - File Share 'FLDR1' / USR1<ReadOnly>

SRV1 has a folder, FLDR1, being shared for read only access to user USR1.

PC1 and PC2 logged on as Domain User USR1.
PC1 is able to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
PC2 is unable to connect to SRV1 to see and look in FLDR1.
Now there are multiple means of connecting to SRV1 to see the share FLDR1.

The following connections were done in combination with the following methods;
Method 1 - via logged on Domain User CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 2 - via logged on Domain Administrator CMD Prompt with 'NET VIEW'.
Method 3 - via logged on Domain User Explorer Window.
Method 4 - via logged on Domain Administrator Explorer Window.

Connection 1 - via Server Name.
Connection 2 - via Server IP Address.
Connection 3 - via Server Fully Qualified Domain Name.

Now that the stage is set, going to the fun part...

Testing from both PC1 and PC2...

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

A:Server 2012 R2 - Internet Explorer Proxy Server Issue

Hi Dicki,
First, please try to reset the Internet Explorer. Some plug-ins may affect the proxy.
If it doesn't work, please try to perform a network capture on the client.
Please check if the client send the http traffic to the proxy server at the correct port.
If the client has sent the http traffic to the proxy server, please check if there is any warning or error in the proxy server.

I'm new to the forum but have a problem that I want make the right decision on. I play Aces High II which is a flight simulation game. It may not be as hard core as Battlefield 3 but they do keep upgrading to high res graphics. My computer is a prebuilt Dell Studio XPS 8000. Intel i7 core 860 processor @ 2.8GHz. Graphics card a Nvidia geforce GTS 240. 8 Mb memory, Windows 7 home premium os. Now that said I am experiencing stutter sometimes while i'm playing. My fps go from 60 which is where it should be to 10 or less. I,m not sure if this is the game card or a lousy connection to the game server as we do get discoed sometimes. The computer is a year and a half old and don't remember experiencing this before that much. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm not against getting a new card and probably need new power supply.

I have a demo web server, which is where all of our test changes are made to our real web site. Our programmers and other various web folk ftp the changes to the site (which is just an IP address we don't have a DNS record associated with it). Our web people are in the US, India and Korea and are all having the following problem. They cannot FTP or HTTP to the ip address of the web site, unless they ping it first, if they ping it then they can suddenly get a response from the site and can access it for a period of time. The Demo machine is not behind a firewall of any kind, its just sitting out there. It has no problem seeing the rest of the world. Its running win2k, I might add. This problem just started happening a few weeks ago... I have reinstalled tcp-ip, made sure that the card is not going to sleep, which wasn't the case anyhow.. its like each individual machine has to handshake with it before it will respond to http and ftp, and then after a period of inactivity from that machine it can't access it again without resending the icmp.. oh traceroute also seems to work to wake it up. I can attempt to access the web site, have it not work, ping it, have it work and the guy on the same hub/switch two feet from me has to go through the same process, as do the people in india and korea as well as other varios friends I've had try it.

We have an NT server, and currently having Major problems with people who don't know what they are doing deleting folders!!!

Is there any way of allowing users (W98) to access and save documents to the folders without them being about to delete them?

A:NT Server Security Issue

If the file system is NTFS, then you can set permissions to write and modify but not delete if you want. If the users are connecting through a share, you should set share permissions that way also. I would set both if able. Don't worry about w98 machines seeing a NTFS share, it uses the server to translate and looks like a FAT folder to the network users. To set share permissions, right-click on the folder and select sharing and then the permissions button set only admins and system as having full control, and everyone (or domain users) to read write and change. That is for win2k, options for NT may read modify instead of change. For folder permissions, right-click on the folder and select properties and the security tab, click permissions and set accordingly. Hope this helps.

I just have a quick question, I have setup a VPN using RRAS and L2TP shared secret, etc. From the client computer it connects no problem, and I can access shared resources on the LAN like it's supposed to work. The only problem is when I connect to the VPN, my browser doesn't work, can't get external internet to work and copying files from outlook 2007 to a shared resource seems to lock outlook up.

I'm not sure if this has something to do with sending all traffic over vpn or not. Is there any steps I can take to quickly resolve this issue? This seems to be the only thing affecting the users at the office.


A:Server 2003 VPN Issue

Is the VPN setup as a separate subnet example: if host client

Also depending on ISP and other possible settings you may need to use other DNS servers .

If so on the client try OpenDNS https://www.opendns.com/homenetwork/start/

Do this on the Client not on Server. Reboot let us know!

I went out and bought a Linksys WRT160N V2 to replace my old wired router (which I had NO problems with, btw) and started having this problem on the XP computer that was hardwired to the router. My main computer (Vista) that was using the wireless adapter had ZERO problems.

The other day, I decided to switch the location of the router and modem to be closer to my PS3, so now my main computer is hardwired while my XP computer is using the wireless adapter. Now my main computer is having this DNS problem. It literally took me about half an hour to be able to reply to this thread because all I kept getting was "Internet Explore cannot display the webpage" and a "diagnose connection" button.

I noticed the pattern to this problem was right after I fired up my computer. What boggles me, is that it's NOT an internet connection problem. I say this, because my MSN Messenger will sometimes connect right off the bat, being able to chat with friends and whatnot, but when I try to check my email or go to any other page for that matter, "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." And if it's not not being able to display the webpage, I get a Google page saying "Oops! This link appears to be broken" and a thing in the upper right hand corner saying "DNS error - cannot find server.

I recently registered mydomain with Yahoo. I created a little web site. I decided to buy MDaemon Mail Server and host and look after my own mail. So I added my MX record to my Yahoo services so that Yhoo no longer look after any mail for me.

I opened the appropriate ports in my router and firewall to allow for this. I also got a static IP address from my ISP. But everytime I try to send a mail to a user @mydomain I get the following failed mail delivery message.

Hello All-Emails have been sent to numerous, if not all, of the addresses in my address book belonging to [email protected] to protect from spambots. Of course, they do not appear in my "sent" folder or elsewhere. I only know of this from the responses I get from recipients. This would have been a simple problem I thought, until I was unable to discover the cause.I am running Windows XP SP3, have two computers on the network typically, and have a number of email accounts. Four email accounts are sbcglobal.net accounts, and only one has been utilized to issue spam/viruses and so forth. This is done through a hypertext link with no message attached.On these two machines Norton 360 runs at start up. Scans reveal no malware. After these messages began being sent as if from [email protected] I did the following:Ran an additional Norton comprehensive scan. Nothing was found.Ran Malawarebytes' Anti-Malware full system scan on both machines. Nothing was found.Ran IObit Security 360 on both machines.

Hey Guys,

We have a terminal server which we currently use and it seems to be bluescreening quite frequent. I know it's a issue related to the Plug and Play driver (PNP_DETECTED_FATAL_ERROR) but I haven't found any clear indication online on how to fix it.

I've attached the BSOD data. If anybody could have a look and advise would be greatly appreciated. Just stumped on how to fix the issue.

We have a Windows 2003 server with two nics in it. Nic one is for user access to the server (, Nic two is connected to a switch that is used for tape backup purposes only ( The server is running our testing software from QuestionMark and everything is working great. But they have a tool that runs from users desktop called Author Manager that allows testing administrators to edit test question, answers and scoring.
Okay here is the problem, as long as nic two is enabled the author cannot connect to the server. If disabled then no problems at all. No routing is enabled and a persistent static route has been added to tell all traffic is to use the default gateway of only. We have seen this before with VPN client connections because checking with a tracert showed that the last connect was to the subnet, but adding the persistent static route would correct that problem. QM support will only say that they do not support 2 nic servers, which I find silly.
So the question is has anyone had this issue before and is there a way to fix it. And if routing is disabled why would a nic pass its traffic off to another nic. Is thier anyway to force the two nics to isolate themselves from each other.

Iam doing r& d on email headers,i want to trace an ip ad of the sender,so i change my firefox proxy server setting to and port 8080 this is the proxy server ip ad, actual my public ip ad is

But when i send an email ad from yahoo to gmail and when i check the email headers ,the ip ad of the sender is similar to my public ip ad even though i had change it to proxy server.

when we set our computer to proxy server and when we visit some website,the webserver see the proxy ip ad and not our real ip ad.

so then when i check the email headers it shows the real ip ad and not the proxy ip ad.

so what would be the reason.

A:proxy server issue

i have been caught in a scandal recently concerning all of this mess and what i learned is that whenever u send an email, it will ALWAYS show your public ip, meaning the ip that the isp has provided you with, and neeeeeever your browsers ip for security purposes. imagine if everyone could send an email using a randomized ip address in their explorer's settings, they would never be caught if they are harassing people by sendind emails!

Yes, I'm <that> stupid, so please take it into consideration. I manage a server that has a RAID 5 on it. Not knowing what I was doing, I removed the hard drive in Slot 0 and then put the same drive back in to the same slot. Now the server won't boot completely.

After booting, I see this message "Slot 0 HP Smart Array 5i Controller Initializing" for a good amount of time. Then is says 1784 Slot 0 Drive Drive Array Failure. Then it tries to boot Cd, floppy, hard, and NIC. It ends up with Non system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

It's a HP Proliant DL380.

So, how screwed am I and what can I do to repair the damage?

I had a plotter setup on a DC, all users were able to plot to it using mulitiple programs. The DC has went down and a new DC took it's place. Now the users can only plot Dwg files (autoCAD) and they can't plot word or other programs. I have checked all permissions and they all seem to be fine. What else should I look for?

Good day to you:

In the last few weeks the house hold has been losing wireless connections while wired connections stay up and running.

I suspect its my nephew who insists on leaving the router open as in no security - no mac filtering - no wep - wpsk etc. since he allows gamers to access his computer used as a server. Of course nephew is connected to via wired ethernet and we are all wireless. We all seem to lose connections at the same time. I suspect the routers limited RAM and hard mem firmware control flags dont allow for collisions and exceed-bandwidth usage from incoming gaming. I also suspect the open access to wireless connection doesnt have anything to do with it either since the dhcp client table never shows any unknown wireless connections.

I have been looking through the event viewer to find clues of which one is : wpad.hsd1.co.comcast.net listed as the DNS in a warning under a DNS Client Event 1014. I found a paper written several years ago concerning DNS manipulation and wpad.xxxanthything generally means an undefined DNS. if you ipconfig/all you can see the dns is correct except for the wpad portion. wpad is never there in that particular way of looking at the DNS. it only shows in the event viewer.

There are 5 affected computers when this happens except nephews two towers.

My first question is can the use of Torrent clients cause this sort of thing. or is it more likely traffic from gaming kicking us off. Ive seen some of his configs in the router and he... Read more

I am running Windows 8.1 RTM (with all updates as of 10/3/13). I have an unRAID server in my local workgroup at home, which was connectable fine when my machine was Windows 7. Now it appears to have some issues.

If I browse to \\HADES (the machine name) it fails saying it "Windows could not find \\Hades"
If I browse to \\10.x.x.x (the machine IP) it works fine
The first week I was still able to get to Microsoft Internet Information Services 8 to access to UI to unRAID, now that is failing unless I use Microsoft Internet Information Services 8.

My unRAID server is a static IP
My Windows 8.1 server is a static IP
My router is Actiontec MI424WR-GEN3I

I tried modifying my host file just adding a "10.x.x.x HADES" line but that didn't work.

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated, I am totally lost.

Hi, I use firefox as my browser because of multi tab feature. Lets say I have a tab with 4 browsers to open say espn, cnn, SI and foxsports. I sometimes get an error of "server not found". The Firefox forum seems to think it is not an error with firefox but I think it is. I don't think it's an firewall issue because sometimes the site will appear and sometimes it wont.

What else could it be. I appreciate any positive responses.

I have had over 10 tabs open at once without an issue so it's more than likely not an issue with Firefox. Is it always the same web site that fails to open or doesn't it make a difference?

The office is running Windows 2000 server and MS Exchange server with approx. 6 machines connected. When anybody in the office e-mails, the recipient is getting a different looking e-mail address than the one it is coming from. For example, if [email protected] sends an e-mail the recipient sees the e-mail coming from [email protected]. When the recipient tries to reply to the e-mail they get a "non-deliverable" message. What could be the cause of this and why would it be happening to everybody in the office at the same time? Thanks.

Yesterday at 3:05 PM we had a momentary power sag in the office, a couple of the office computers turned off, but after that everything seemed to be okay. Both of the users were able to restart their machines and continue working. This morning when I got to work I went to check the server which is working fine, but the tape drive seems like it has no power. when I try to eject the tape in the drive nothing happens. I also tried to format the disk by using the server software and it tells me that the "cartridge is not in place" It is connected to a UPS so I don't see why this would quit working due to a power sag. What can I do?

I upgraded the NT 4.0 server domain controller to a Windows 2000 server and immediately noticed that the XP client machines took a VERY long time to logon to the server. The server is running DHCP but I modify the DNS setting so that the XP clients have the IP address of the 2000 server DC as their DNS. This corrected the problem with the logon speed but it created another little problem.

When the 2000 server DC, which is designated as the DNS server, goes offline, all the XP clients are unable to access the Internet. Once the DC is online again, connectivity to the Internet is restored.

I do not know what options I have to designate the ISP DNS information so that the clients do not have to rely on the availability of the DC for Internet.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

PS..we are small automobile dealership that does not have a large IT budget. I try to do the best I can but it explains some of the older technology i am using.


A:2000 Server DNS issue

First, your config to point the clients to the server DNS is the correct choice.

The symptoms resulting from an outage of that server are normal - -
and should lead you to the solution that the DNS & DHCP servers need to be
replicated (ie two of each).

However, you can configure the clients with two DNS addresses:

the first one (being the primary) should be your internal DNS address
and the secondary might be any public DNS server like (which is google)
DNS processing is to issue a request to BOTH dns addresses and to accept
the results of the first one to reply.
That then creates the situation (a race condition) that if YOUR server gets bogged down, the secondary is more likely to reply first.

You should really attempt to avoid all outages of your DC and to schedule all maintenance to 'off-hour' periods to reduce the impact to the clients

I downloaded the 1.6 and 1.7 patches to my Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

For the past month I have been playing CoD4 with no problems. But after I installed the patch, non of the servers on the server list show up. I click refresh, and it connects to the master server, but then nothing appears.

I know for certain that my firewall isn't blocking anything.

IS there a way to fix this so the servers come up? Or even a way to remove the patch so I can go back to the older version that actually worked?

My server at the house has Windows 2003 server, I have IIS installed and have one of my web pages hosted behind my Linksys wireless router/firewall. My server has a fixed IP address and the router has the IP address open with port 80. I do not have a static IP address. However, Dynsite and Zone Edit take care of that and the web site works fine. Now the issue, I have a total of four web sites to host, IIS gives me an IP address error when I try to start one of the other web sites. It has to be something silly im missing.

Linux running Fedora 14 is the NFS server and License server for my Toon Boom Animation software. Mac Pro running Mountain Lion is the client.

This set up previously worked but after a power outage the software will not open on the Mac since it cannot verify the license with the linux license server.

Network setup:

Motorola Uverse Wireless Router/Modem ---> TrendNet Switch ---> Server and Client

Manual IP addresses set for the server and client

I have to use NFS Manager on the Mac to be able to view and edit the NFS mounting, but upon starting it, I recieve an error message saying that the Mac has reverted back to Bonjour only operation and that there is a possible problem with the forward and backward name resolutions.

I think the router is handling the DNS, and I don't know how to resolve the issue... I'm not all that knowledgeable about advanced networking and have been barely getting by until now.

Both computers are talking to each other since I can access files that are on the Mac from the Linux machine via SMB. Haven't figured out how to access linux files from the Mac though.

Hey all, got a stumper that needs fresh ideas!

At work this afternoon our proxy server stopped providing internet and email access.

End users can't connect to their email because they get a POP3 error, one of the protocols that the proxy server provides. Same thing with their internet access - "proxy server is refusing connections".

The network itself is fine - I can ping every segment (every router, every hub, every switch) and the proxy server itself. The proxy can also be bypassed - allowing internet access. Not a feasible solution though.

The email services are all running. Both network cards are sending and receiving. The proxy server itself is connected to the internet. Email is being collected, run through our filters, and supposedly sent on its way. On the surface, everything seems to be fine....Yet no end user going through the proxy can get outside onto the internet or access the server's email portion.

Right now we're running a virus scan which will take hours to finish. Meanwhile, my shift ended and I went home - My manager can deal with it now.

I don't suspect it to be a virus or anything running in the background. Theres nothing fishy in the running processes and CPU and memory utilization appears normal. I was about to start powercycling network devices between the proxy and the rest of the network, but that seemed like a bad idea.

So, tonight all of a sudden my internet crashed. I waited a couple hours and it didn't come up so I googled the issue on my phone and was trying to fix it. Anyway, after running a diagnosis it said my DNS server might be unavailable. So, following some tips on a website I went to Wireless Network Connection properties and switched the option from "Use the following DNS server addresses" to "Obtain DNS server address automatically" and suddenly the internet came back up just like that. I'm confused, I didn't change any settings so what would have happened to cause this and how would the option get changed like that? I mean I never messed with any settings, I was playing WoW when the internet went down. Thanks for any help.

Edit: Actually I did turn on/off and reset my router/modem during the couple hours when it was down. However, it didn't fix the issue.
