Problem with the computer on the LAN with the shared resources

Q: Problem with the computer on the LAN with the shared resources

Hi

I have Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 64-bit that struggles along to see the shared resources of other computers on the LAN even if the "Network discovery" and "Files and Printers Sharing" options of the "Advanced sharing settings" applet are enabled.

In other words, if I click on Network in Windows Explorer, no computer on the LAN is displayed; whereas, if I write "\\<ComputerName>" in the address bar, I can see with difficulty its shared resources.

This fact is in each account.

I have no firewall active, I use the network of type "Work" and I do not use the homegroup feature.

The operating systems on the target computers are Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 64-bit and Windows XP Pro SP3. The computers have the same time.

How can I check whether the SMB protocol is working properly?

How do I fix this?

Thanks

Bye

Preferred Solution: Problem with the computer on the LAN with the shared resources

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,

I have on odd problem with 2 WinXPSP2 machines. I can manage them and see their shares from any other machine machine in the domain. But when I try to browse machine B for its shares or manage it from machine A, It is impossible! and what makes it more weird is that I can ping machine B from machine A. OK, the problem is that I need to use a shared printer on machine B from machine A and simply I can't. Can anybody help me to fix this issue?

Thanks

A:Weird Problem with Shared Resources in Windows XP

Be sure each computer has a unique and simple name (ex) Office, or Home. On each computer, go to Start/Run and type CMD and press enter. In the command prompt type ipconfig and press enter. This will tell you the IP address of this computer. Do it to each computer and write it down. Be sure each XP machine is part of the same Workgroup Name not just the blank Workgroup. Make sure each computer has a User Name and Password associated with it to log in. Be sure you have Simple File Sharing turned on for both computers. To connect to the remote computer B on machine A, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the computer (ex) \\[computername] or it's ip address (ex) \\192.168.1.254 . This should show you the remote computer B's shares. Find the shared printer and Right click it and choose Connect. This will put the shared printer under computer A's Printers and Faxes. If it needs drivers, then download them from the printers support/download drivers site, and type in the make and model# of the printer and install just the driver for the printer on computer B.

Hello.

I have two pcs: an old desktop pc with windows xp and a notebook with windows 8.
Both computers are connected to the Internet through an adsl router and are also connected togheter, sharing files and folders through plain networking: HomeGroup would not work with windows xp.

Therefore, both computers are under the same workgroup, have different IP addresses and both share printers and folders.

I am able to log into my notebook [running windows 8] from my desktop pc [running windows xp] but not vice versa.

When my windows 8 machine prompts me for user name and password to log into my windows xp machine, my user name and password are not recognised.

I tried setting up the same user name with the same password on both machines, but whilst now I am able from my Windows XP machine to log directly into my Windows 8 machine, without entering user name and password, I am still receiving the 'The user name or password is incorrect' message from my windows 8 machine.

In both machine I installed Comodo Internet Security.
I set up Comodo Firewall in my Windows XP machine to receive Remote Desktop connections.
Now I am able to connect to my XP machine from my Windows 8 machine via Remote Desktop.
I am still unable to log into it from the Network folder, though.

Is there anyone who have any idea of how to procede?
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Problem of accessing to shared resources on a network

Turn off all firewalls and make sure the workgroup network is set to Private. Try to access the already shared folders such as All Users on XP and Public on W8. Once I get everything working normally with those, then I try sharing other folders.

When everything works the way you want, then is the time to try turning on security such as firewalls. I don't know how many times I set a firewall to settings that always worked before, but I could do nothing until I disabled it altogether.

I have a small home network, my main computer that is admin over all the others has printer/scanner hooked up and shared as a network resource so others can print from it. The problem is, every time I try to access the resources on the main computer running 2k, it asks me for just a password. Not even a username, just a pass, to access Resource: \\-computername-\\IPC$. How can I remove this password box?

I can accces the NAS from W7 thru my browser thru http: (using the name "NAS").
I can also connect from W7 with Remote desktop Connection

This used to work, stopped on the 1st of September (my backupprogram has given an error message every day since then - I backup to the NAS device.)

I have turned of IPv6, I use a workgroup (not homegroup). I have Netbios over TCP/IP enabled.

I have the same problem on both W7 PCs - and no problems on the XPs or the Mac.

I use Norton Internet Security (2010 Beta) and ThreatFire. Turning them off makes no difference.

Any ideas/suggestions?

A:Cannot access shared resources, used to work, Internet

Uninstalling ThreatFire solved the problem. I had tried inactivating it but that wasn't enough. I also uninstalled it from the XP machines but I'm not sure if that was neccessary (since the XP machines didn't have any problems). I also had to set up id's in the Credential Manager to be able to see the shares from the other computers - I wish there was a way to do this easily from the Networks folder.

A:Solved: computers can't access shared resources

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

A:Computer Resources

Resources are what's used up (inside the computer) when it's working. It's RAM, it's the CPU, it's the system bus, it's your video card, your hard drive, etc.The most common problem is seen when a lot of programs are running and then you start to edit video. This places a great stress on the system.So, the first place to start is with an assessment of your system. From the spec's that you've given, I'd suspect that this was not a good system to expect high performance while editing video files.Some things that you can do to make it better are 1) Add more memory (up to 1 or 2 gB of RAM)2) See if there are any options for upgrading the CPU3) See if you can upgrade your video card4) See if you can upgrade your hard driveThen, this brings up the question - is it cheaper just to buy a new system? Only you can answer that.Or, maybe you don't want to put any more money into it right now. So here's some things that you can do to make it "less slow":1) Close all open programs before you begin editing video2) Trim your startup applications down to only those that are essential for the system (I use StartupCPL for this - it's free from here: http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml )3) Trim your services down to only thase that are essential for the system.

Hello BleepingComputer forums! Recently I've noticed that my PC is scorching hot and the fans sound like they're trying get the thing to fly. Using CPUID HWMonitor it shows my core temps at around 190 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm legitimately concerned that it's going to burst into flames. I've tried to hunt down what's making it run so hard via task manager and haven't had any consistent success. A few times I've popped task manager open and seen a slew of Service Host things sucking up my CPU and memory, but it doesn't always show that when I look. I'm really not sure what the hell is going on or if this is even posted in the right section. Maybe it's a hardware problem and not security? So far to try and fix it I've ran MalwareBytes a ton of times and it hasn't found much. I was going to follow along with an old forum post I found with more or less the same problem, but then I thought I should probably just get help and not risk killing my computer. Just in case, I've backed everything remotely important up and I'm prepared to wipe the whole thing if need be. Although obviously I would rather fix the issue. The PC is a Toshiba Satellite P75-A running Windows 8.1 64 bit. Any and all help would be dearly appreciated. Thanks.

My computer is kinda old, about 7 years, I've upgraded a few parts and done a fresh install of windows in that time, including replacing the hard drive because some of the issues I was having seemed like the hard drive was dying (turns out it wasn't) but one thing I've noticed is that it seems to be consistently getting slower.
I've run multiple virus scans, have a firewall, defragged, cleaned up my registry, used a program to delete junk files from around my computer, disabled programs in msconfig I wasn't using and obviously I don't have **** on my computer like toolbars, yet it keeps slowing down. This always seems to happen with every computer I use. Sometimes reinstalling windows does the trick but not always.
My resource monitor always says my computer is using almost no resources, even while I'm struggling to scroll down on facebook because my computer is lagging so bad, even when I try to minimize firefox that has one tab open and the tab is google, it will lag. But it comes and goes too, some days, hours, or minutes it will lag intensely, then it can go days/hours/minutes without lagging again. Also the lag doesn't seem to be related to resource use because games like fallout 4 don't lag at all even on the highest settings, netflix will lag, but the video, once playing, will not. The only things that lag seem to be related to the windows interface, like firefox, steam, explorer related tasks like opening folders and minimizing windows.

A:Why is my computer getting slower but not using more resources

What is the Make and Model# of your computer?
First off is this Windows 7 32bit or 64bit? how much Installed Memory (Physical RAM) do you have? Right click Computer and choose Properties, this will tell you.
The best way to speed up a computer is to install more RAM. 32bit Windows will only recognize up to 4GB of RAM, you would need 64bit Windows to install more RAM, depending on what Make and Model # your computer/motherboard is. If you are running 64bit Windows with less then 4GB of RAM, this would slow you done immensely/

If you used a Registry Cleaner, it may have done some False Positives and removed Registry entries that are vital to Windows, slowing down your system. We always suggest to not use these type of programs.
Also, other then the Windows Firewall, what other Firewall or Security (ie) Anti-Virus etc, Software do you use. Many of these programs can slow you down.
We suggest using the Windows Firewall only and the free Microsoft Security Essentials for Anti-Virus and only one Anti-Virus program. Malware removal programs like the free Malwarebytes are fine to have.

Hey all, newbie to the forum here. I feel like the title just about explains everything. My computer freezes but task manager doesn't show a spike in resource usage (CPU: 8%, Memory: 38%, Hard Disk 1%, etc). If anyone know what it is, please let me know. I don't think it's a virus either, but I'm yet to run a scan (I have Windows Defender, which I've heard is actually good in Win8). Also, this install is about 2 weeks old, OEM. Tips appreciated!

A:Computer freezing even when 100%l resources not being used

Could be hardware related (temperature, power problems) or drivers, as well as some rogue program. Defender is nowhere close to enough as an AV. Run a scan with Malwarebytes too, to make sure there's no malware. Although, I don't think it's malware behind that problem, viruses and such stuff usually make spikes in memory or disk to cause system stoppages.

My computer uses up Memory (RAM) very fast, way faster than it used to, despite having more RAM and running less programs. I have a ton of spyware that keeps coming back too, almost immediately after running Sypbot and/or Adaware. Today it got so bad, I had to backup a couple of days. So, considering this forum has been a big help to me in the past, I decided to run HijackThis, and post the log here.

My computer is kinda old, about 7 years, I've upgraded a few parts and done a fresh install of windows in that time, including replacing the hard drive because some of the issues I was having seemed like the hard drive was dying (turns out it wasn't) but one thing I've noticed is that it seems to be consistently getting slower.
I've run multiple virus scans, have a firewall, defragged, cleaned up my registry, used a program to delete junk files from around my computer, disabled programs in msconfig I wasn't using and obviously I don't have **** on my computer like toolbars, yet it keeps slowing down. This always seems to happen with every computer I use. Sometimes reinstalling windows does the trick but not always.
My resource monitor always says my computer is using almost no resources, even while I'm struggling to scroll down on facebook because my computer is lagging so bad, even when I try to minimize firefox that has one tab open and the tab is google, it will lag. But it comes and goes too, some days, hours, or minutes it will lag intensely, then it can go days/hours/minutes without lagging again. Also the lag doesn't seem to be related to resource use because games like fallout 4 don't lag at all even on the highest settings, netflix will lag, but the video, once playing, will not. The only things that lag seem to be related to the windows interface, like firefox, steam, explorer related tasks like opening folders and minimizing windows.

I'm running XP with SP3. I have some malware issues still remaining after working for the past few days. The problem started where about 6 to 8 minutes after startup my computer begins to run very slow. Looking at the Task Manger I see that one of the versions of svchost.exe is increasing its memory use. All the rest of the process are steady, and the CPU soon maxes out at 100 percent.. The only way to continue is to kill that process – this works for a while until about 10-15 minutes later another svchost.exe begins to act the same, and eventually killing that one or the following one disables much of the controls or disables the computer.

I found a strange dll in System32 "Spoolsv5.dll", but could not remove it.

Windows restore had no restore points available.

I ran Hitman pro which identified a version of Alureon rootkit and a few other things, which it tried to remove. It reported success, but after running again the rootkit was identified, or indicated. The Scvhost problem was not cured. However Spoolsv5.dll was eliminated

I ran Superantispyware which found more malware, but didn't resolve the problem.

I ran Malwarebytes a couple of times and eliminated more malware. But without a cure for the svchost issue.

HJT question Im not sure how to resolve my computers system resources being consumed,pushed and wasted. There are times when my CPU resources max out at 100% in the task manager despite having new hardware which is pretty sad considering these resourse are being used by god knows what. I thought it might be worth it if I posted a HJT log file and cross my fingers. Thanks
P.S. I recently did a system restore which seems to have called things down a bit but I still can tell the resources are being pushed for no particular reason that Im aware of.

Hello everyone. Recently, it seems my computer started running slow. Game FPS dropped, Firefox freezes and even youtube starts to chug. I tried to do some self cleaning and it worked for a couple days but its back to being slow.

First I started but uninstalling many old programs and trying to limit the number of processes running. I ran Malwarebyte and found 4 items of PUP.Optional.Spigot and they are quarantined now, installed AVG run that for a clean scan, tried using their free trial of CPU optimizer. Things were good for awhile except I would get kicked out of any program I was running back to the desktop after a seemingly random time. Figured it was AVG so I just uninstalled it. I have HJT and have used it in the past under the direction of others and I know there are some issue in my registry but I'm not 100% sure if it is save to delete them.

Looking through my processes I don't every remember seeing double of some of them like firefox so not sure if that is new or not. I have about 75-80 processes running and I'd really like to chop a bunch that I don't need but I just don't know which ones I do or don't.

I shared a Canon Pixma MP170 printer on a Windows 7 Home Premium machine. I can see the shared printer name over the network from the XP machine within Add Printer Wizard screen. When I try to add the shared Canon printer on a Windows XP SP3 computer it says it will connect to the printer to download drivers but than it says no drivers are available.
Then it opens up a screen that asks me to provide an unnamed INF file. I put the install CD for the Pixma in the CD tray and pointed it to all Canon INF files located on the CD (one at a time) but it will not go any further. I also found same type of Canon printer INF files within the Program Files/Canon printer folder, but it would not use those either to complete printer add.

Am I missing some procedure that is needed to add a shared printer on a Windows XP computer from a different operating system such as Windows 7 Home Premium?

The Canon MP170 works both when plugged into XP machine and Win7 machine through USB port

Thanks for any help that someone can provide

Hi,

My friend's computer has been running very slowly recently. Windows task manager revealed to me a file, "vvagfdet.exe" which is using all the CPU capacity. I suspect that it is malicious. I'd love any help in diagnosing/addressing the problem...which may not be vvagfdet.exe after all.

The computer is an Acer laptop, Windows 7 Home Premium with SP1. It has no strange/dangerous installed software, as far as I can tell.

At our small business, we have one person who brings in Windows 7 laptop. When she does, it hijacks all network resources: The printer will not work, any new computers that come in will not be able to connect to wireless network, etc. This is consistent --every time the person brings the computer. We're lost as to why this happens. Any ideas would be helpful.

Most likely incorrect driver or defective adapter. Or is it a case of her having torrents that swamp your router with traffic? Does this happen only with an ethernet connection, only with a wireless connection, or with both?

I can play games like Destiny 2 for hours and never have a problem. If I play The Old Republic it'll still crash, but last a good half hour before doing so. If I'm just browsing, or even just leave it at the desktop it'll crash in minutes. I can't even leave a game running in the background just to browse, or look at the steam store. I've tried all I can think of at this point. I've done a fresh install of windows on a new HDD, fresh installation of all games and drivers, swapped out the GPU, swapped out the RAM, disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled the whole system, swapped out mouse and keyboard as I use the Logitech g600 mouse, and g510 keyboard and they store profile information on the devices themselves and maybe corrupt? But no, still crashing. I've got a friend that suggested software called WhoCrashed, but the only crashes it detects are the ones it can generate to test the software with. Turned off autolaunch on everything, and even with no software running, still crashes. I'm out of ideas, without just buying even more new parts and swapping them out, but with no unusual reports in my system log, and no crash reports I don't even know where to try next. Help?

My computer's specs are: Windows 98, AMD Athlon, 256 RAM. I've also included a log from Hijack This below. Basically, my computer used to start up on its own, out of the blue. I found out this didn't happen when the modem was switched off, so the easy solution was to switch the modem off. Then, after installing a firewire device it now restarts as soon as it finishes its shut down process. I've tried looking in the bios and have disabled the "power up on external modem act" but to no avail. What else could it be?

Another sub-problem I have is that I'm always running low on system resources. There is always around 50% resources or less before I even start using the programs I want to use! I look to see which programs are already running and there is at least 20 opened most of which I have no idea what they are.

A friend of mine has a problem with her computer. I'm relatively computer proficient and have successfully helped her out of problems with her computer in the past, but this one has me stumped.

She had left for work over the weekend and I assume her brother was screwing around with it, because when she got back Windows 98 was reporting 187 MB of RAM and very low system resources (less than 30%). The normal amount of RAM on her computer is 256.

I had her run antivirus detection on it and she had a trojan, I cleaned that off of her computer and after reboot it showed 256 MB RAM again, but that didn't last for some reason, ~12 hours passed and it showed 187 again. Continued scans detected nothing else. I also ran spyware removal software and cleaned hordes of stuff off.. resources went up a bit but RAM continued to stay at 187.

If more information is needed i'll provide it as I get it. Thanks a lot for the help.

Welcome to TSG!
One item you could check is see if the youngster played around Virtual memory settings. Start\settings\control panel\system\performance\virtual memory make sure no max is set, min at zero and windows controlling.
You may also want to get a second opinion online virus scan from housecalls.

Other TSG members may have more ideas.

I have to create programmes for large scale civil engineering projects. This is not a problem However, we find more and more clients require a cost breakdown. Costing is carried out by a different person, but from this I can get a TOTAL cost for excavation, fill, etc- all the actual costs for an item.
The question is, can I use this overall number to calculate the cost of each item, and thus generate a costing plan? I want to be ablt to give a value to excavation, and then have project divide this up between all the excavation items- so if I have 10 excavation items of different times (the time is related to volume and thus represents a quantity as well), is there a way to get this done automatically? Typically I have over 300 tasks, sometimes 4 or 5 000, and its way too much work to go in and try to edit it all once the estimators have a value.

Seems I can do this, but helps are not a lot of good, and slightly better than our IT- who seem to think if its not word, Excel or email, it doesnt deserve help.
thanks
