Preferred Solution: system gets hang (it freezes) only option is to switch off and switch on

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.

This problem has been completely solved if running Windows XP with Outlook 2007 by install and uninstall Microsoft Hotmail Outlook Connector.

But when use Windows 7 Pro with Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010, this problem cannot be solved by install or uninstall Microsoft Outlook Connector.

I posted at the Ask.microsoft.com but still not solve.

I observe that this problem might related with CPE17 Autorun Killer, or Symantec Endpoint 11 Antivirus. As many of my customer also face this same problem with same CPE17 and Endpoint 11 program installed.

I ran into a series of problems when trying to remove a defective printer from Devices and Printers, because it says "Access is denied, unable to Remove Device". To remove the printer, also I tried to run print management, and it says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path". And in order to repair the defect I tried to open Printer folder under the Spool folder, but I got the message: "you don't currently have permission to access this folder".

So the problem appears to be that I am not logged in as the Administrator. In User Accounts in the Control Panel, my user (hsmith) is listed as Administrator. Additionally, when I click on Switch User in my Start Menu, I am not able to login as any other user, since none others are listed.

To get Administrator access, I tried to run CMD prompt "as administrator" but it says "Windows cannot access the specified device". When I go to change the Advanced System Settings in My Computer, it says: Access Denied.

I went into Safe Mode, Rightclicked on the c: and d: drives, and selected security, then in the "group or usernames" box, I changed my user setting as follows:

I have Windows 7 Professional on my PC. In the first load I had, the PC should automatically detect if the LAN cable was plugged in, turn off the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable was now in use.
Unfortunately, I had to reload my PC, and since then I can't get it to do it again.
So, what I'd like to achieve is this: Have Windows automatically detect when the cable is plugged in, turn of the wireless radio, and change the network icon in the right bottom corner to reflect the cable is in use - and, obviously, vice versa.
Can someone tell me what I need to do, please?

Hi,
There are two methods can help you.
1. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings> and right click your wired and wireless adapters one at a time to change the properties. Select IPv4, click <Properties>
then click <Advanced>. For each one, clear the "Automatic metric" check box and assign the metric value manually. Setting your wired adapter?s metric value lower than wireless adapter one, such as ?1? for wired adapter and ?2? for wired adapter.

2. Go to <Network and Sharing><Change Adapter Settings>,
hold down 'alt' to bring up the "File" menu, select "Advanced", select
"Advanced Settings" from the dropdown menu, adjust the priority of your wired adapter higher than your wireless adapter in the "Advanced Settings" window under the "Adapters and Bindings" tab.

Hope someone can help, john will told me the cable would go from the big switch to the uplink on the small switch but I am wondering if I have it all right or not and wonderiing about from the router to the 24 port switch does the cable just go in a regular port in the big switch or if there is an uplink port does it go there. Hope you can understand my rambleing here.

Router to uplink port on 24 port switch, and then normal port on the 24 port switch to uplink port on the second 4 port switch. An auto-MDX port on a device negates the need to worry about uplink ports for that particular cable connection.

I have a wireless router connected to my modem, and ALL PC's connect to that for internet.

I also have a gigabit switch I use to transfer data in between several of the machines. I do it quite often and I don't want it eating up the wifi bandwidth.
I have done it before, but it has been a long time and I cannot remember how I forced internet traffic over the wifi and local traffic through the switch
Is the only way to do it to specifically tell Windows to use the IP address of the LAN connection? I know it will work that way, forcing local traffic directly to that IP, but I seem to remember there being an easier way to do this.

I was wondering what the main things are I could do to optimize vista. I just bought a new laptop and its using almost 700 megs of ram. I was also wondering if there was a way to change the Switch Between Windows option. When I click on it, it brings up a bar with the different applications I have open and I can choose one (same thing that happens if you hit alt-tab). I've got a friend who has vista and when he clicks it, it brings up a kindve side view of all of the windows he has open and he can choose one. How do I enable this? Also, How do I make it so that when I hover over a link, a small preview box will pop up showing the page it links to? Thanks.
 

A:Vista Optimization and Switch Between Windows Option

vista:
700 megs is very low for running vista, i would recommend upgrading to at least 1.5 gigs. the window switch you are looking for is a part of the vista areo theme. change you theme to vista areo in the selection personalize of the desktop context menu. this theme tends to take up a fair amount more ram than the bland non transparent one does, because of this, vista may monitor the ram usage. if vista feels your computer cannot handle vista areo, it will turn it off until enough ram is cleared up. this may be the problem with your system.

explorer:
its seems like what you are looking can be found in a plugin. here is a link for a plugin that is compatiable with firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search?q=coolpreviews. i do believe the same plugin can be found for explorer and safari. the production site is: http://www.cooliris.com/

The pc causing the problems is the oldest on our network, but it is running Win10 like the others. When I check the stats on the router for his IP address, his has the highest transmission numbers.

Hi everyone, I searched through the forums but couldn't really find what I was looking for.

Currently we have a DHCP server set up to a switch, that has a special line connecting to a switch in our shop which is just across our back lot, giving network access to the few computers over there. They recently put in a new machine that needs network access, but they have already accidentally cut two ethernet cords. I'm looking to provide a wireless solution for the machine, but I don't want to have to spend a few thousand dollars on a large wireless switch.

Can I plug a wireless router into the switch in our shop, and essentially turn it into a wireless bridge, or is there another, simpler way to do this?

If this has already been answered, sorry for missing it!

Thanks!

I thought that I had this all figured out, but my dad just asked me a question about my setup, and I can't answer it.

The setup is like this:
[ip-phones + computers]-->[small switch]-->[managed L2 switch]-->[router]-->[modem]

I have several ip-phones and computers grouped into blocks of 8. Each set of 8 is a medley of phones/computers connected to a small switch http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Sate...nksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=3681322279B34

Each of these switches, in turn, will be connected to a managed L2 switch http://www1.ca.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/pwcnt_3448p?c=ca&cs=calca1&l=en&s=biz that will create 2 VLANS: One VLAN will contain all of the phones, and the other will contain all of the computers. In turn, each VLAN will have its own router and DSL modem, thereby separating the network traffic.

I know that I can use this L2 switch to make the VLANS based on the MAC addresses of the devices. However, the smaller switches do not support 802.1q [VLANs]. Will it be a problem that the smaller switches do not support VLANs? Essentially, will this setup work to split up network traffic?

Thanks once again,
-Roger
 

A:Computer, switch, switch, router, modem

I have the same DELL switch for my phones. You PoE will not carry across the linksys switches, so that is the first problem.
Next are the computers attached to the phones? Or does each device get its own drop?

And whats this about 2 routers and modems? Thats a bit over kill!! QoS would do the trick.

I would run all the devices off the Dell and attach the computers to the Phones (most IP Phones have a passthrough port) Configure the Dell with trunk ports with the Computer VLAN passing untagged traffic making it the native VLAN. While having the phones on a Tagged VLAN(If you phones conig allows you to set the VLAN in its config great! If not you can bind the MAC to the VLAN). The you create a QoS policy giving the VoIP traffic priority!

Additional info; On 16th October had great difficulty getting my emails from Yahoo. Sometimes sign-in box appeared without my security signature and different style of writing for browser remembered log-on details.

Cheers,

Gordon.

Hi Everyone.....
So, I just got Wireless Broadband hooked up in my business. I hooked the LAN to the Router and then hooked up a 16 port gigabit switch. I have three terminals coming out of it (in the bcak of the building) as well as a line running to the front of the building. At the front of the building I have the line going into another 16 port gigabit switch. I have 4 computer terminals coming out of that switch. I AM getting internet at the back of the building .....but nothing at any of the terminals after the second switch (front of the building). Can someone help?

Thanks!

Hi, guys. I have connected Huawei switch S5700-24TP-SI-AC with Cisco switch 2960 using one single fiber with LX SFP. The port is up on one side (Blinking on Huawei side) and down on Cisco side...Please help.
 

A:Huawei switch vs Cisco switch, How to connect

What kind of 2960 switch do you have? Have you checked the interface to verify the switch recognizes the optic and all the stats report back as normal? Are you using a Cisco branded optic? Do you see light being shot out from the optic in the 2960?

then i reset with button and i get this or the boot error device warning.

​http://i.imgur.com/3S2ZRaq.jpg

so my solution is to open my tower and switch the sata 0(my SSD with OS) to Sata 2
then reboot and it works...


SSD kingston Hyper X 240GB
dell vastro 470 intel core I7
windows 8 ultimate with media center and office 2013
Norton Anti-virus 2013.
now i know lots of you are going to say you don't need it or it can interfere with the OS...but it works great and im a Norton certified tech.i did all the tests(un install test for 1 month same issue)

A:freezes and i need to switch sata

In your BIOS, what mode are your drives using/set to...IDE, SATA or AHCI? Was the SSD part of the retail PC or is it an addon to your system?

Hi,
I have a D-Link KVM switch which was working fine switching between my XP SP2 computer and my Vista computer.
Then I decided to install 2002 norton goback for some stupid reason. Then my computer would not reboot. So I rebooted in safe mode and did a system restore for earlier install in the day.

But now my XP computer loses(freezes) my mouse pointer when I switch over to my Vista computer and back. The Vista computer keeps the mouse active. The only way I've found to get control of the mouse pointer back is to reboot - that's no good.
I've updated the bios. I've uninstalled the mouse driver, and let XP reinstall them. Nothing works so far. By the way 2 driver files show up for the mouse, i8042prt.sys and mouclass.sys. Am I supposed to have both these driver files? I have a PS2 mouse.

Anyone have any suggestions short of reinstalling XP, all the drivers, and programs again?

A:Mouse Pointer Freezes Using Kvm Switch

Sorry to hear your problem. I have both those drivers on my WinXP SP2 system, so they are not the problem. I run a KVM switch between this and a dual 98/Linux machine with no problem, so I won't be trying your Norton product. In general, I have had complete disasters with all the "roll back" utilities I have tried, including the MS checkpoint one - it always fails. If you want to do proper backups of your system volume, I suggest using the Ziff-Davis version of BartPE with DiskImageXML: it really works.
I have had problems of mouse-lockup caused by "broken" graphics drivers, but I cannot help you really; you might try reinstalling your graphics driver, a lot quicker than doing a complete reformat and WinXP install.

Hello,

I have Win XP Home. When I switch user accounts (without logging off--only switch users) the mouse freezes up.

Both user accounts have administrator privileges. This happens *every* time I switch users.

I can unfreeze the mouse by using Ctrl+Alt+Del to log off.

I have scanned my system for virus and malware with ESET NOD 32 Antivirus and Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware. I also run Spyware Guard.

Also, I have recently run Disk Cleanup and Defrag.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

It freezes sometimes but not always. The bottom task bar disappears and the area where it should be is a bright blue with some white box borders around it.

I can't click to launch any applications. I can press ctrl-alt-delete. If I select shut down it tells me that explorer.exe is not responding. If I press end task it doesn't seem to do anything. I have to press the power button and hold for ~ 5 seconds to restart.

Last night I tried a system restore to a restore point from about a week ago. I think that's before the problem started. Didn't seem to make a difference.

I've run the Zone Alarm spyware and antivirus applications. I've run Spybot and AdAware. Nothing obviously malicious and I've fixed all apparently minor problems they've found.

I don't think I've installed any new software since the problem started.

A:Explorer.exe freezes sometimes when I switch users

I've seen some improvement.

Since my post I've run msconfig and under Services I deselected things labeled "unknown" in the manufacturer column:

- the "Apple Mobile Device" which I think came on after I installed ITunes and then uninstalled it.

- something called "DSBroker Service"- I don't know what it is.

- InstallDriverTable Manager

In the startup tab I deselected QTTask, Realplay, and Adobe Update Manager- all things related to applications that have given me trouble before.

I've had no freezes since then. I'm not sure which of those items above may have been the problem, or if something else is going on and this is just a coincidental improvement,

Recently.

My Gateway 4016 computer freezes into weird graphics screen or switch off all together whenever I have usb wireless plugged in or any usb flash drive plugged in.

If I unplug all the usb plugged into the computer and just re-start with windows it o.k.

If I try to re-boot in any mode with usb plugged in like usb wirless it will shut off the computer just before starting the Windows desktop.

Or after Windows starts, if I try to plug in any usb device after it will freeze or switch off.
How can I solve this problem ?


Thanks.

A:Gateway 4016 freezes or switch off

are you using the Back USB ports of the computer for you wireless and Flash Drives and not the front? The front are weaker and should only be used for low powered USB devices like Keyboard and Mice.
You can also go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In the Device Manager, expand USB. Right click each USB Root Hub/Properties/Power Management and un-check Allow Computer to Turn Off Device to save Power.

Hello all

I just installed 4GB ram on my 32 vista and it only recognized 3GB in the os (vista 32) and all 4GB in the bios. so I decided to use the /3GB Switch, by using that command in bcdedit, it all worked good. The problem is now I have 3069 mb physical memory and ONLY 209 mb Kernal Memory!!! so I used the "bcdedit /deletevalue IncreaseUserVa" and bcedit said it worked successfuly so i restart my pc and it STILL had the same memory! so right now im stuck with only 209 mb Kernal memory! any ideas on how to fix this? I looked all over google and found nothing. Should I keep these settings or try and fix it?how do i fix it?
 

A:3GB switch will not switch back, vista 32!

I am not too familiar with those commands you speak of, but I do have a question: Is the video card built into the motherboard? If so, what amount of system memory is being shared with it? Besides that, I have no more ideas to offer you. Sorry

Hi, i have a AIO B50-30 and I'm trying to connect via the hdmi input socket my TV satellite box. I have found out recently that there is a switch on the side of the unit that will allow you to switch to the input channels so allowing viewing of the box and other like units Xbox etc. My issue is that I'm pressing the switch but nothing is happening it's simply staying on my desktop on Windows 10. Can anyone please help to see if I'm doing this right or am I missing something ?.  Any help, suggestions would be gratefully received since there is very little on the subject in connection with this particular model .thanks in advance.

We are moving to a new office location. The guys who will be setting our network is proposing the following equipment:

1. 3Com 24-port 10/100 mbps switch
2. 24-port Patch panel
3. 6u data cabinet
4. 1u cable management

The new office will be a 2-floor building with around 40 computers. I asked some of my friends who are more expert on network setup and told me typical switch (Linksys, Cisco) will do if we need to save some money.

What do you think? Thanks a lot!
 

A:Is 3Com 24-switch necessary or typical switch will do?

Well, first off, I'd be specifying a gigabit switch for expandability, I can't see investing in a 10/100 switch in 2010! If you don't need a managed switch, or need to save money initially, and unmanaged switch will probably be significantly cheaper.

In point of fact, if you want to go really cheap, you can get away for less than $100!

I understand that a hub is more like a party line, where all devices hear and read data before sending it to next port, and a switch is advanced hub. But, what is a router. I know what a wireless router is, but they say a router is more advanced than a switch. Can you buy a non-wireless router?

Also, can you connect 2 switches together? So, Modem-----to Switch----to Switch----Computer

And both switches have other devices connected?

A:Hub vs Switch vs Router/ 2 Switch Story

you CAN buy a non-wireless router--but--the two I found on Amazon were only 10/100 (most modern systems use gigabit ethernet 10/100/1000) but wired are generally cheaper than a wireless router(the Cisco below is NOT cheap)--however--it's not necessary to use the wireless part of the wireless router as most have at least 4 ports (wired).

Yes you can connect switches together but they won't allow for multiple computers to connect to the Internet (at least not easily nor in a way that makes sense).

What devices are you trying to connect together?

wired routers:
Amazon.com: TRENDnet 4-Port Broadband Router TW100-S4W1CA (Black): Electronics

Amazon.com: Cisco-Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port 10/100 Switch: Electronics

Can anyone help?

For the past month or so every time I am in the middle of doing something - usually on the Internet - the cursor stops moving and nothing happens when I press the Winkey or CTRL+ALT+DELETE.

I've done several system scans but found nothing. The mouse is built in and not a USB mouse and I am using Vista Home Premium on a Del Inspiron 6400.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Welcome,

Can be memory or other causes. Fill out your system specs and I will try to help.

While you get the information that I need, you can download this. You may want to run it overnight, because it needs several runs to be accurate.
