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.)

We have just acquired a Quad-core Xeon, 4GB RAM dedicated server running Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 32bit. We are using the server to run game and VoIP servers mainly in consoles. This requires that a user be logged in to launch the servers. We access the server via remote desktop.

I have set the server to automatically login on boot using the registry method so that if the server crashes when I am not around the server can restart itself and re-run all the software (using the start menu "Startup" folder).

The problem is that when I login via Remote Desktop the OS creates a NEW SESSION under the same username rather than just connect to the existing session. Yesterday we had three sessions running on the server all using the same username and so each of them was running duplicate apps. This was because the automatic login method created a session, and both myself and another admin logged into the server via remote desktop creating three sessions in parallel.

How do we force the server to accept only one session per username?

Thanks.

On my school network, the Windows XP Remote Desktop Client is available but all internet connections must go through the network proxy server (which only allows port 80). The problem is not the port 80 restriction (the pc that I want to connect to is running remote desktop on port 80) but getting the client to use the proxy. Is there anything I can do that will allow me to use to proxy (i have access to the registry if that helps)?

Hello, 
I have discovered, that Windows 7 Pro doesn't support multiple monitor for remote desktop service, as it is featured only for Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise editions. See this article http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Remote-Desktop-Connection-frequently-asked-questions
I wonder, if this feature is now supported in Windows 8 Pro or does Remote Desktop work the same way as in Windows 7 Pro ?
I need to connect to my computer using Remote Desktop Client and use extended desktop on multiple monitors.  However current Windows 7 Pro support only desktop spanning ( /span), which is not that useful.

Hi All,
I have a home system and work system both of them are same version windows 2008. At work I have the three monitors and at home I have same number of monitors. At work I have no problems extending my desktop onto all the three monitors, when I get home and try to log into work using RDP i can only extend the display to two monitors. While using the RDP from my home I use the option full screen and it still displays it only on two monitors and the rest of the space is grey.

I have learned that under the group policy editor I can use the option remote desktop services I can edit the number of monitors I can use. When I use the gpedit.msc on my work desktop I dont see the option of RDP. And the screen display option is greyed out at 4096*1024. I googled a bit and found out that I can download the ADMX templates and install them, even after installing the hotfix i am still missing the RDP option where i can change the number of monitors.

I am not sure how to proceed and why the work system is missing the RDP option in the first place, can you please point me to the right direction,

Microsoft's Windows Server team released a preview of the next Windows Server product, Windows Server 2019, yesterday to the public.

Windows Server 2019 Preview is available for any participant of the Windows Insider program but the post on Microsoft's Windows Server website is unfortunately a bit vague when it comes to actual downloads of the preview version of Windows Server.

The very first thing you need to do is register an organization account or a personal account; Registering in this case means that you join the Windows Insider Program with the account so that you may download and use Insider Builds.

Once you have done that head over to the Windows Insider Preview Server download page and select "Windows Server vNext LTSC PReview" under available downloads. You can download localized versions of the Server 2019 Preview ISO and have 24 hours to download the 4.2 Gigabyte ISO image from Microsoft.

Stewart,

Thank you for contacting us. I brought this issue to your attention almost three months ago on April 18th. The Washington Ear's FTP will occasionally lock a file it is receiving on upload and insist that a copy already exists. I am a bit surprised that
this is the first time we are hearing from you again on this issue as while it is not necessarily a daily occurrence it certainly happens on a weekly basis at minimum.

The most recent day in question that the problem occurred would have been July 3rd's upload from the files I saw still in the directory when I went to upload Monday's reading. 

I would love to assist you in resolving the problem of uploads being locked however it appears to me that it is a server side and not a client side issue. The only thing that I can provide are the details that I have noticed and the attempted solutions which
have not worked from this end.

Upon receiving the message that the file already exists, renaming the file name or changing the extension locally before attempting another upload provides the same error message. I am not sure of how your server verifies what files are there before receiving
an upload. This message occurs even when a command to delete the files on the server has been sent and waiting for a response to verify that the directory appears to be empty before attempting to upload.

I recently setup a new Windows 7 machine (brand new Skylake build) and swapped the displays from my old machine to the new machine, and started working on the old machine via RDP as I migrate things slowly.
What I found by trial and error is that usually within 20 minutes of using Remote Desktop from the new machine, I would get the Aero Performance warning. I see dwm.exe consuming 100% CPU of a single core. This boggled me because I have a fast machine, with
an ASUS GTX 580 Matrix GPU (nVidia) that performs very well. I am using the latest Geforce drivers.
Once it happens, dragging Windows is a very hitchy experience. Nothing works to recover. If I start the Desktop Window Manager service, it'll go immediately to a high CPU state. I have to reboot to clear it up. If I dont use RDP, it never happens, but within
minutes of opening the RDP session, there it goes again. I can stop the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service to workaround the problem.
One more symptom. Once, before rebooting, I decided to uninstall the nVidia drivers and try reinstalling them. The installer complained that no compatible display adapter was found. I had to reboot in order to reinstall them. This almost sounds like a flaky
driver or GPU, but this GPU worked fine for the past couple of years in another box (though that doesn't mean it didn't go bad since).

This software package can also be found on the Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home Edition product CDs and can be installed on any supported Windows platform. To install from the CD, insert the disc into the target machine's CD-ROM drive, select Perform Additional Tasks, and then click Install Remote Desktop Connection.

Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem. You will need your Windows cd.

If still no luck try a Repair Install:

Set the computer to boot from cd first in the BIOS
Place the xp cd in cdrom and reboot
Boot from the xp cd and choose install
Ignore the first repair option and continue with install
When windows finds the previous installation and offers to repair
then do the repair
If you have xp sp2 installed it needs to be incorporated into your xp disk or it will not offer the repair option only the clean install

Hi,
I'm having an issue customizing the Start Page registry key in Windows Server 2019 (this method works fine in 2016) I would load C:\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT and add \Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page REG_SZ "Company specific URL"
and when a new user logs in they'd get the "Company specific URL" but with Windows Server 2019 this isn't working.
I have also tried adding "First Home Page" and "Default_Page_URL" and it doesn't make a difference, it seems some sort of mini setup is configuring the registry keys and ignoring or overwriting what I entered into NTUSER.DAT from the

Why do you want to stop it? It was installed for some reason, so you may need it.

Most likely you can turn it off by going to Start...Run...and typing in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and pressing Enter

I cant get the windows xp home version of it to work. Is there anyone that knows of a free remote desktop program, or if someone would be able to send the windows xp pro version of the remote desktop program.

A:Free Remote Desktop Program, or how to get windows remote desktop to work

XP Home has "Remote Assistance", while XP Pro has both "Remote Desktop", as well as "Remote assistance". You can download from Microsoft, a Remote Desktop "add on" which will enable your computer to become the "client" but not the "server".

can you provide some details about what you've done to get "remote assistance " up and running?

Hi, i know that avgamsvr.exe is the AVG7 Alert Manager Server but i want to know what exactly it does and if is really essential for the AVG 7 to work properly.

Why i am asking this?Simply because i want to save as much resources i can but of course without have to completely turn off the AVG7 background scanning & services.I already set to manual the AVG7 Update Service (avgupsvc.exe) because i only update all my programs my manually i dont like auto-update plus i save some more resources with this service set to manual.

So to my question what exactly the AVG7 Alert Manager Server does?

Thanks for any replies.

A:Avg7 Alert Manager Server Service

From everything I've read, this process is necessary for AVG to work properly and disabling it will cause AVG to malfunction.

There does not appear to be official information concerning the specifics of what it does; however, a couple posters in some discussion forums have said that it alerts the user to the presence of a virus and that it is responsible for updating the program.

I have a Toshiba Desktop on our 3-computer LAN that I bought used 2 or 3 years ago that has 2000 Server OS. No major problems until last Friday when my wife was online cleaning the webmail on her insightbb.com email account and her computer locked up. I did not know she had some earlier incidents of locking up in either Outlook or the accounting software on this PC. Previously she had a Win98 OS and was used to rebooting if there was a lockup. so this is what she did 2 or 3 times before letting me know there was a problem.

I had been getting error message: Service Control Manger At least one service or driver failed during system startup. Use event manager to examine the event log details. I found the error was 7000, looked on the Microsoft tech support under Q316500 and used the Rms.inf file to install the Removable Storage Manger in the WINNT\system32 folder.

However the machine will NOT startup normally. After restarting from safe mode it reaches LOG ON TO WINDOWS where you enter user and password.
Service Control Manager
At least one service or driver failed during system start up. Use event manager to examine the event log for details. As described above, I thought I had corrected the problem. But obviously have not. Incidently, I am WAY above my head in all this. I ma not an IT guy! Just someone trying to get his wife's home office computer working.

Thank you.

Same as you'd do a remote desktop connection from an XP machine to an XP mmachine

well, you cannot connect to the server in your company using remote desktop unless your machine and the server share the same IP bundle / are in the same domain.
An alternative is that you can use VPN to create a secure connection into your company's network and that should allow you to do a terminal session on the server.
However you will have to talk to your IT team if you want this done.

Hey, I'm having some trouble with Remote Desktop.

Our server is using windows server 07 R2, remote is enabled, server is on a domain.

I am able to ping, and also view the server's shares (\\servername). but remote desktop isnt working.

Up untill a week ago remote was working, but mysteriously is not working anymore. I tried changing port numbers and also remote using ip and computer name. Tried remote using xp, and 7 and all are comming up cannot reach the server.

Ive also tried, disabling the remote and re-enabling, reinstalling the video driver, asigning a new ip address.

If anyone could lend a hand that would be great, Thanks
Chris
