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 want to set up a terminal in an office that will allow users to make a video call to an adviser in another office. I was thinking of using Skype.
The terminal will be accessible by the public so I want to make it so that when I turn the computer on in the morning and login as a particular user - say 'guest2', the user will not have access to anything on the computer except for Skype. That is no program files, no right clicking, no browsing the web etc.Effectively I want them to be able to use Skype or log off and thats all

Is that possible?
Many thanks

I am currently running Server 2003 and have about 45 users, three of which apparently LOVE MySpace. They spend a large amount of time on myspace.com and my Chief wants to put an end to that, BUT just for those users.

Is there a way to restrict access to specific sites for individual users? Like maybe add them to their own group and do something in GP or something like that?

I am not a networking guy and don't know a lot about IP addresses.

My wireless network has this IP Address: 192.168.1.x.

The last number x is a number which I didn't want to put on the forum as I'm not sure if I should. If it is harmless to write the full IP address and if you need to know what the last number is, let me know.

I want to change this 192.168.1.x and restrict the access to a certain range of addresses for the clients/devices.

The original settings can be seen in the Local Network.JPG screenshot. For security reasons, I've blanked out certain info (as before, I don't know which piece of info is important)

1. Can the last number (x) be any number? Eg, can the IP address be:,,, etc?

2. Can I change the third number to something other than 1, ie., etc?

3. Can I change the Host Name to any name?

4. What should I put for Domain Name? Can it be anything? The present "domain invalid" is the original.

Assumming the answer is yes to the above, is the following example OK?

IP Address:
IP NetMask:
HostName: MickeyMouse
Start IP Range:
End IP Range:
Default Gateway:
Domain Name: Donald Duck
Is the above ok or did I do something wrong?

How can I Restrict a laptop to just 1 Website on our network?

Short Version:
I have a laptop that stays at home, never leaves the building. I want to restrict it to ONE website, thatís it.
It runs on Windows XP, we prefer Firefox browser, However, I have used Puppy Linux in the past, and if possible, I'd like to get a BOOT CD set up with a browser the laptop can be booted off of, so no need for AntiVirus software, hard drive, etc Ö

Long Version:
We must restrict web access on 1 of our laptops to just ONE website on our own network The laptop never leaves our building.

We have an internet account with cable company, & a Linksys router. There are 2 computers on the network (1 Wired, 1 Wireless), we want to add an old Toshiba Portege laptop (via/Wireless).

Wish List:
1) We must restrict web access on only the laptop to ONE specific website, while allowing the other two computes to be able to work normally.

2) If possible, we would really, like if the laptop could be booted from a CD, (something like Puppy Linux), so we don't have to worry about all the hassles associated with other Anti-Virus software, viruses, hard drives, etc ...

3) If you know of any software, or a way to do this, Please Advise.
..... Better Yet; if you know of an .ISO that is set up to do this - That would be AWESOME (hint hint)!!

Thank You for your Time and Consideration!

A:How to Restrict particular website bandwidth for Local User..?

I'm thinking either a 3rd party application that runs in the background and can be configured by an Administrator with the password, or have an expensive router that has the capability to dish out each local IP on the network a certain quota.

If you are trying to stop your annoying brother/sister downloading, just set up telnet or something, I ususally telnet into my brothers laptop and stop the DHCP service if he is hogging bandwidth or downloading too much. I told him Optus do it if you download too many movies in a short space of time.... and he believes me. He's dumb.

No battery available for Lenovo Ideapad 510 bought 14 months back. Service Centres in India and neither the Lenovo India Management have any clue or ETA about the battery availability or its pricing as confirmed by them. Few other Lenovo exclusive charging or rather black marketing with different high prices with various warranties for those batteries.

I am attempting to share files on a web server with counterparts in India and China. I have made password protected folder for each group so they have access to the files they need. This would definately streamline and eliminate having to email the files to them (as many are over 10mb which is the max for email) or worse mail copies of the files via FedEx.

The problem is, they say they cannot access the files. I tried to see if the username/password was the issue, but they simply say they cannot access the site at all.

Is it possible that for some reason my server is not accessible from that region? The server is based in the UK. I am using server supremeserver45.com which hosts my site docs.funboxers.com. Any way to find out if it is a regional problem, of if they are just technologically challenged?

If it is the region, we would definately find a new server, but how do we ensure this server will be accessible?

Thanks in advance.

Hi! I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me. I've been a member of a bulletin board website for adoption for over four years. The site is IVFConnections.net (and .com usually works as well). The site is hosted by The Planet. The admin, unfortunately, has left the building on the site--for reasons unknown.

So after logging onto this site for the past 4 years, last week, I've been unable to access this site (I get a DNS error) from both of my home computers (laptop and PC.) I've contacted Comcast, reset my cable modem. I've contacted McAffee and all of my settings are just as they should be. I can access the site perfectly fine from work, my husbands work and other friends computers. I've asked others on the bulletin board if they are having issues and I seem to be the only one.

Today, Dell told me to reset my computers back to factory settings, as they were sure this would solve the problem. It did not and I still am unable to access the site.

I'm also using a Netgear wireless router for my laptop. I've disconnected the router and just used the PC hooked up directly to the modem and I'm still having the exact same issue.

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? Does anyone have a "work-around" for me to use to login to the site? I appreciate any help.

I'm truely frustrated!

My name is Dennis.
I have very limited knowledge of access. I have created a basic trouble tracking system for my office that starts with a switchboard. Four different User groups can create new trouble reports, check status of open trouble report, look at as list of closed trouble reports or look one trouble report with detailed log info. I only have one database and allow the users to select their "orgname" from a combobox with a value list. My problem is my boss doesn't want each group to be able to see any other groups reports. I'm wondering if I could first run another switchboard that would allow them to select their orgname with password and then pass the value to the database. Or I could just create four separate databases. But my boss would need to see all of the reports accross groups. I hope I'm explaining myself clearly enough. I'm sure you guys would will have some suggestions, just remember I'm fairly basic. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have a problem with accessing one particular website from my laptop.

The error message says
The connection has timed out
The server at www.kotak.com is taking too long to respond.
The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I am unable to access it from any browser- i have tried google chrome,firefox, safari and IE too

The website in question is www.kotak.com, I was able to access the website last week from my computer.
i use an acer aspire 4740G laptop windows 7 and use wifi in office normally to access the website.

the website works perfectly fine on other PCs/laptops in office. It also works on both my phone 3G and wifi as well on phone.

I have tried accessing the website on my home internet connection as well but i am still not able to access it on the laptop. At home i can access it thru my phone though.

So i think its largely an issue with my laptop but i am unable to figure it out. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Hello Everyone,
I have a small office (< 5 staff) and one of my employee will soon leave the firm. He is a developer (.net) and uses a normal Windows 7 PC. His system uses a wireless card to connect to a router for network and internet access.
Now I don't want him to take away files, documents etc from his system to his email or usb. Is there a software that can restrict access in such a way that selected usb ports and access to network (to and fro) is disabled. Only selected apps can access the network/internet. Basically I don't want him to take away files from his system. I don't want other systems which can access his pc to copy files as well. Either restrict on the basis of site or allow access through only 1 system on network.
Please advice if such a thing is possible.
Thank you,

A:Restrict access on a PC

All of these things are possible, however they aren't something you just throw together.
Realistically there is no way to prevent people from taking data that they are able to access, just ask the NSA, especially if the protections haven't already been put into place.  You can purchase a 64GB USB stick, sufficient to store what most people will create over a number of years with a company.  If that isn't enough you get a portable TB drive.
It all comes down to trust and ethics.  Either you trust the people that you hire to behave in an ethical manner or you don't.  If you don't trust them you shouldn't hire them.
If it becomes an issue after the fact there is always the court system to remedy the problems.

I hope this helps Setting Permissions as for the internet I believe that you can launch internet explorer and click on tools/ settings and enable a content manager that blocks everything but a list of websites that you chose. I'm not at home tight now to play around, but I think you can. As for setting program permissions, make sure that your sons account is limited and log in as an admin and then set up the permissions for the programs. Go to c:/documents and setting/sonsusername/desktop to remove any applications but those you want, and then c:/documents and settings/sonsusername/start menu to edit his accessable start menu programs. Beyond that I will have to wait until I get home to play with stuff. (I think you are limited with what you are able to do unless you have NTFS file structure.( right click on c:/ under my computer to see {Fat or NTFS})) Hope it helps.

At home we access to the internet wirelessly by means of a modem-router TP-Link Archer MR200, through a SIM and 4G link.
The problem is that after the first connection the wi-fi network key of the modem-router remains memorized in the device (laptop, tablet, smartphone), therefore the kids are in a position to access the internet without our control; which is not what we want.

Is there a way in Win10 (WinXP and Android as well) to prevent the network key from remaining memorized (without having to delete the wireless network profile at the end of each session) ?
This would force the kids to come to us whenever they want internet.

Hi guyz,

I wanted to know how can we restrict access to the service on a particular system? Actually in our company we have given admin right to the users on their local system i.e. their domain user names are added in the local Admin group of that particular computer they use. For example "Alice.Shon" is the domain user name for Alice and the system issued to her, she is added in local admin group of that particular system. I know its not a good practice and it should not be allowed but the management says we have to give them admin rights or else they wont be able to install many softwares (even power user rights does not let the system install those software). Anyway so everyone has admin right on their local system, and they can do anything on that system.

But we have deployed Kaspersky Enterprise software as Anti virus, and when I tried to stop the service associated with this AV all the option are disabled. I even can't run the service under my logon name in the Service Name----->Properties------>Logon------->This account.

The AV server runs on one of our servers and the AV clients are installed on user's machines. They AV client gets its configuration from the AV server.

I am just wondering how I can deploy such kind of settings on any other service that even the local Admin cannot stop or start that service. How it is possible?

A:Need software to restrict access on kiosk

If you are using XP Home I personally would install the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit on XP and restrict the user that logs in to only be able to use IE. Vista will already have this feature built in with its Parental Controls.

You could run IE in Kiosk mode and set it up as your default shell instead of using Explorer as your default shell. Not the most secure way but can work if you have the right policies setup and most users won't know how to get around it.

There are also plenty of other programs to help you do this.

You could also setup a program like Trust NO Exe to block what programs can execute

, but if you are using XP Pro, you could setup local policies with gpedit so that the only program that can launch on the computer is IE.

1. Others using your computer? or
2. To limit others from connecting to your wireless access? or
3. What kind of connection do you have?
4. How many user profiles do you have on the computer?
and ..........

If you can be more specific, we will be able to answer the query better. To me at least, it was unclear what you were wanting to know.

I need to restrict a physical drive from use by other users on a stand alone windows XP pro machine.

I have removed simple file sharing and allocated a new share with the admin user as the only one with permission to access the drive. Yet when I log in as another standard user I can still access the drive.

I have also tried removing the administrative share for the drive but there are restrictions whereby when the 'server' service is restarted the share is re-established again.

Not sure where to go from here without using a third party software solution, of which I would like to try and avoid.

Hi folks

Strange one here that i cant figure out for the life of me. Basically, we are about to roll out netbooks to our tradesmen to enable them to receive jobs, order stock, close jobs, etc, without having to return to our premises. The netbooks will connect to a gateway on a specific server that contains our database with all the relevant stock/jobs/schedules. However, I want to disable all internet access from the netbooks as, with the PDA's they currently have, they spend a large portion of time browsing the internet instead of actually working. I initially I thought tit would be possible to set up parental controls allowing only access to the gateway of the server, but for some reason it won't allow it. Is there any way, at all, that i can do this without the use of some specialist software? You might have guessed I am not a desktop tech, although quite knowledgable around most OS's. If anyone has any ideas, suggestions (or abuse) please let me know. Regards.



A:restrict all web access bar a server gateway.

My solution would be to use OpenDNS, which, has a option to specify access to only websites on a white list you of course can administer. I can give you more information about doing it this way, if it interests you. Let me know.

I am looking for a way to stop users from accessing the Printer Properties, specifically when going to File > Print in an application and then clicking on the Properties button next to the printer name.

I have tried using permissions, but they are insufficient. I have also looked through the group policy settings.

I have even used Sysinternals Regmon utility to try and lock down sections of the Registry that are opened when the user goes to this dialogue box, but the problem here is that the changes are made using the spoolsv.exe and this is running as SYSTEM and not the user.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

I have an "always on" broadband connection. Is there any way - apart from using software such as Net Nanny - to configure Windows XP so that one user can't automatically access the internet. Put it another way, is there any way to control that one user's access?

A:restrict user's access to internet

Hi finlay,

as you have XP Pro, the best way would be to log onto that users profile and then enter the Group Policy editor:

- Start -> Run -> type:
- Click OK
- Expand:
User Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance -> Connection
- In the right hand window, double click 'Proxy Settings' and then check 'Enable proxy settings' that will open the 'Address of proxy' box. Type in as the address and then click OK
- Now expand:
User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer
- In the right hand window, double click 'Disable changing connnection settings' then check 'Enabled' and then click Apply then OK
- Close the Group Policy editor and test it out :)

All access should be met with a 'Cannot find server' error message and the user will not be able to change the proxy settings to allow access.

Hope that helps :)
