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.

I have to PC's that belong to the same homegroup. When I go to explorer, there is a delay before the other PC shows up and yet another delay when I select to browse that PC. If I close and go back I'll often get this error code and then there are time when I get the code on the first try. These PCs are running Windows 8.1 Pro and powered on 100% of the time. I noticed this nonsense while on Windows 7 as well.

A:Error code 0x80070035 "The Network path was not found"

I see the same types of problem with 8.1, some lag when I open the Library on Homegroup machines.

That error message is what you get when access fails but there are a million other reasons why it's failing.

These types of problems aren't easy to track down and you really need to start with the basics and work your way up.

Hello All,
Strange things happened when I tried to access a NAS share using my windows 7 PC. 

Steps:

1. Access "\\ipaddress" and login in. -> success.

2. Click any folder listed  -> Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found.

3. Wait for a while. Click the folder again -> success.

However on other PCs, windows 7 or 8, I got no error. I tried the fixes proposed online and found that configuring "Windows Credential Manager" works for me. But no one explained why.

So I traced the packets in wireshark and found that the windows 7 client sent a strange smb2 packet to samba server after clicking the folder. 

The wrong message looks like "Tree Connect Request Tree: \\ipaddress". According to smb2 protocol, the tree connect function requires a buffer in the form "\\ip\sharename". Obviously, my PC sent a wrong message and got the error back.

Why my Windows 7 client sent the path without sharename, others don't?
How to avoid it?
If you need more info, please ask.

I have a PC with a US Robotics wireless access point connected with a crossover cable.
I have a laptop with US Robotics wireless PC cards.
Both the PC and the Laptop can see the Access Point using the Access Point utility.

Look at your routers internal LAN IP addreses if you indeed have one for internet access. I would bet that the IP addresses are in the 192.168.1.x network and not the 192.168.2.x network.

"Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found" when trying to access any network shared drives. Our file server is a windows server 2003 standard edition. This problem occured yesterday on my laptop with OS windows 7 pro. I cannot access any shared folders, shared drives. I cannot access my own laptops shared folders. I can see the device on the network and can connect to my laptop and access files on my laptop from other pc's. I have checked all the services required and they are started, netbios over tcp/ip is enabled, network discovery is turned on, windows firewall is turned off and also tried disabling the antivirus on the laptop but none worked.
Also tried the system restore, which did not allow me to log back into the domain giving error " Trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed". So had to undo the system restore.
Need a solution. Someone please help!

A:ErrorCode 0X80070035 "Network Path cannot be found"

In general this problem is caused by Norton internet security.


The solution was simple:

I was running NORTON 360.

Under firewall settings; disable personal firewall.

Once this is done, access is allowed to the host pc.

You can then set your permissions, create network paths and map network drives like you would normally do.

Also in services, NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.

Sorry for the long title. But I really need some help.
Whenever I go in to My Network Places and click View network computers, I get the message saying: "network" is not accessible, you might not have permission to use this network resource. Then under that it says: Network path not found. The other two computers on the network can see each other, and the three tivo's can see each other, all are wireless except for one of the computers. I am using a usb wireless adapter (I have tried two) and I bought a new router (Linksys wrt54g - running in "b" mode.) I still cant access my network so I reformatted my computer and loaded XP home back in, then updated it to SP2, turned off windows firewall (I have zone alarm installed.) That didnt fix it, it is still happening. Also since updating to SP2, I keep getting that little popup from the wireless tray icon that says: "wireless network connection is now connected" every couple of minutes, like it keeps losing its connection and is reconnecting over and over. Can someone please help me? Thanks!

Hi all,
I fixed a stubborn networking issue and hopefully someone else can benefit from all the frustration I have experienced over the last few days.

Some background. This was a workgroup network not a domain client/server. 
Also, Windows HomeGroup wizards were not used - just accounts and passwords. 
I have five NAS boxes for storage and backup. These NAS boxes use CIFS or SMB file systems. IP address are assigned through DHCP. It is a very simple yet secure workgroup net. Everything was OK then it hit the fan.
I installed a new router after the old one failed. I powered down the entire network, cabled up and configured the new router. On my old Vista notebook PC all five NAS devices were OK. In Vista, Windows Explorer, I could access all the folders and files
on all the NAS boxes.
However on all the other systems, Windows 7 or Windows 8, I would get errors. In Windows Explorer I could see "\\MyNAS\Share\" but cannot navigate to it. 

I would get an error:

First make sure the other computer is not sleeping or powered down, heh. If that does not fix it, reboot everything on the network. These two things is usually the most common networking issues. I would assume you are using Homegroup and have wired connections? Fianly make sure that all computers can see the internet so you know that the network is up and running and the router is working. Speaking of routers, it is a long shot, but powering it off then on might help.

A:the network path was not found joining domain

Welcome to the forum.

In an active directory domain the client always looks for the domain controller using DNS, even when it is on the same subnet. All clients must be set to use the domain DNS server. Typically the client would obtain this information from the DHCP server, usually running on a server in the network. DHCP on the Internet router would then be turned off.

Here is the setup:
Windows Server 2012 with Directaccess and VPN enabled
2012 server is joined to a Windows 2008 R2 Domain controller that has DNS and DHCP installed
All firewalls have been disabled and the computer is open to all ports and connections.

Testing two client computers running Windows 8.1 Enterprise and Windows 10 enterprise evaluation.
Both computers have been set to use the 2008R2 DNS server

I can successfully connect to the server via VPN and map network drives.

If i go to join the computer to the domain i type in the top level domain and IT PROMPTS for the network username and password. I type it in, and after about 30 seconds it says Cannot join the domain mydomain.com Network Path Not Found.

I'm not sure what i am doing wrong as it sees the server because it's prompting for the credentials, but then cannot complete the connection.

Any help is greatly appreciated, banging my head on the desk for a couple hours didn't help.

A:task manager "path not found"

Have you found any answer? My PC started doing this very recently. I'm running Vista. No viruses apparently.

Continues to occur in Win safe mode.

Odd thing is, if I copy a known good (and working) taskmgr.exe off another computer, put it on a flash and try to run it, I get the same error message:

G:\taskmgr.exe
The specified path does not exist.

Check the path, and then try again.

I'm guessing that this error message is somewhat garbled - the file that it's not finding is proably not taskmgr.exe, but some dll or ocx that taskmgr.exe is depending on.

I configured a DNS server and a Domain Controller through the Server 2003 wizard and I really can't get anything to connect to the domain...
As far as DNS, don't really know a lot about it but I can browse from the other PCs on the network and the server with DNS being set as the servers IP with no alternate...

Logging off and logging back on gives just the "name", "password" boxes. Selecting the "option" button only shows her "connect via dial-up" and not a domain, or log on locally option. How do you fix this??????

Um... is she on a domain? Connection to an NT server? With an NT server domain account?

If not, then you can not create a domain using W2K Professional. If she is just trying to connect to your machine, and your machine is not an NT (or Netware) server, that you must do so in a workgroup enviroment.

I have checked and doublechecked that network discovery is on, sharing is enabled, and that the workgroup is set up correctly.† What steps should I try now? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Here are some suggestions you can try:

1. Temporarily turn off firewall on each machine.

2. Modify relevant settings on Windows 7 machine.

a. Click Start and open Control Panel.
b. Open "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Advanced sharing settings".
c. Expand the current network profile (such as "Home or Work"), and then select the following options:

"Turn on Network Discovery",
"Turn on file and printer sharing",
"Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the Public folders",
"Turn off password protected sharing"

3. Enable IPv6 connectivity

a. Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) to Start Search bar and press "Enter".
b. Right-click the network connection and click "Properties".
c. Select the "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" options and click OK.

4. Access the target computer via UNC name. Write down the computer name for the laptop. Click Start button in Windows 7 and type \\laptop computer name, and then press enter. Can you access the laptop machine now?

See: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;814112

This has really got me baffled. Can anyone help me?

win2k3 sbs one client refuses to connect to domain
Hey everybody,

I stepped into a situation with a company whose computers were quite screwed up. I've fixed and setup work arounds for all the problems but one.

The windows 2003 server runs ok. There are three client computers (the bosses, the secretary's, and this one I'm working on now). Two of the client computers work just fine, they connect to the domain no problems.

The computer I'm currently stuck on (that I reloaded with WinXp Pro & SP2) refuses to log on to the domain. I setup the client with the domain, which refused to work for a while but finally took. I got alot of "The RPC server is unavailable" messages while trying to get the domain to take. It finally did take.

The reloaded computer has no firewalls running, and all the network settings are default/automatic and I've verified they match the other two client computers exactly. I get this message when trying to logon to the domain from the client computer:

"Windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable...."

There is a 4 port router which I've checked the settings on. It's setup with the static IP address and DHCP/etc disabled, and controlled by the server, as it should be. No IP's are blocked, nothing seems amiss there.

The reloaded machine has no firewalls running, not even windows firewall.

The server can ping the client by name ... Read more

A:win2k3 sbs one client refuses to connect to domain

The Red Flag I see is that the client cannot ping the server by IP address.

IP Stack may be corrupted.

Try This:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. Type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: Type : netsh winsock reset catalog
Have you tried plugging the broken client into a port on the router that a WORKING client currently is using?

I've seen this posted elsewhere but the proposed solutions don't apply to, or are simply 'solutions' we can't apply in this environment.
We occasionaly see one or both of the following on desktops and laptops alike

"Could not reconnect all network drives" balloon message and an icon in the system tray
No balloon message but the icon exists in the system tray
Understandably this happens off the network (although we want to suppress that), however, this happens while on the network.  In every case that we've seen this, when we check 'Computer' (formerly 'My Computer'), all of the network drives are connected. 
Windows reports a 'false positive' - so to speak.
Briefly here's our setup

Win 7 Enterprise in a domain environemnt Built-in Win 7 firewall has been disabled; No third-party software firewall solutions present
Network drives are mapped via net use /persistent:yes, Explorer with reconnect & logon set & via exporting/importing the network drive information from HKCU\Network

We use a login script, however, the login script does not handle the mapping of
all of our network drives.  This is because we have a number of different departments, who, over the years, used overlapping drive letters and there are some situations where users also overlap
departments that use overlapping drive letters.  (This goes back before my time.)  So instead, users map their own drives, remember the credentials and reconnect ... Read more

After cleaning a virus off an infected system in our network, the computer ceased communicating with the network.
I removed the computer from our domain controller and haven't been able to rejoin. When I try to add back to the network, the error message is:
 
The following error occured when attemption to join the domain "____.local":
The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help.

 
No other computers have an issue joining or leaving and rejoining the domain.

A:"Network location cannot be reached." when rejoining domain

Hi,
Sometimes virus infections can play havoc on your network settings.
 
Try the following:
* Start up the client Machine
* Launch Command Prompt
* Type In  netsh winsock reset  and press enter
* Next type in command  ipconfig /flushdns  and press enter
* Restart the client Machine
* Once re-started, ensure your IP address is set correctly either via DHCP or Manually -- (If setting manually, ensure your primary DNS is the IP of the domain server)
 
Re-try adding to the domain (try as per normal using domain.local and if that doesnt work just try domain without .local) it will depend on your setup overall.
 
Kind Regards,
Martin

When attempting to move files from one drive to another I'm getting this error:

Destination Path Too Long

The file name(s) would be too long for the destination folder. You can shorten the file name and try again, or try a location that has a shorter path.

What I don't understand is that the destination path would be identical to the source path, only on a different drive. The files causing the problem are within a sub folder but the initial copy was done by dragging a folder from the root of the source drive
to the root of the target drive. This was done locally not over a network. So the paths should be identical except for the drive letter.
After renaming the root folder to something slightly shorter I was able to move the files.
What I don't understand is if these files have a path that is too long for the filesystem (both drives are NTFS) how were they created at all?
Thanks.

Hi everyone,

I am an Accounts Supervisor with basic knowledge of computer networking and I have a minor but annoying problem. I have some printers in different departments that a dozen or so people use, and everyday these particular (2) printers go offline-the message i get is "Printer not found on server, unable to connect". Our IT guy is on vacation and he's not responding to my emails so I'm taking the task of "fixing" this. These are Dell printers 1815's running on Dell Optiplex 320, XP Pro SP 2. I installed these printers on our server using the "remote" feature on the installation disk, I've inputted the IP address, and clicked "install". It'll work for a bit then go offline, then I would have to reinstall the driver on the server again and then the connection from the local machines to the server would be fixed. Why are the local machines losing their connections to the server and how can I fix this issue without having to reinstall the drivers everytime? Thank you in advance for your assitance.

A:Network Printer "not found on server" Daily...

Hi, you said, "These are Dell printers 1815's running on Dell Optiplex 320, XP Pro SP 2." If that is the case, you need to do a local install and share the printers.

Basically, if the printer is directly connected to a PC with a USB or LPT cable, then I would be surprised that a remote install with IP address even works.

If the printer is connected directly to the network with a network cable only, then you may have bad network cables or may need to change the port on the switch/hub.

With the information I have, this would be the first things I would check.
