Preferred Solution: MS17-010 "WannaCry" patch for Windows Storage 2008 Standard 64-bit SP1

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.)


Windows 7 Ultimate with ESU installed and activated/licensed as shown by slmgr /dlv, but when I install an ESU patch (i.e. KB4550964), it fails with the CBS logging "NO ESU KEY FOUND." Should note that I've tried two separate ESU keys now. I re-installed
the Windows OS key and the ESU key and activated with VAMT and tried MS activation servers as well, but neither helped. Slmgr says everything is licensed i.e. "License Status: Licensed" on both ESU and OS keys. Windows
App log shows 80070661, which is pretty vague and I double-checked it is a 64bit update on a 64bit OS.

Need the aforementioned drivers.  I have installed virtually every driver available in the Driver download page inc Control Vault and cannot get the two driver mentioned.

Any help would be appriciated 

A:Need drivers for Dell Latitude E6520 "Broadcom USH" & "Mass Storage Controller" Windows 7 64 Bit

Check under Security for the Broadcom Unified Security Hub (USH - probably a print/biometric reader) for the device that best matches your hardware:
The other "mass storage controller" ... go to Device Manager, right-click the device in question, Properties, Details tab, change dropdown to Hardware Ids and give me the the VEN and DEV ID's (do the same for the above USH device if the driver linked does not work).

Okay, this one is a doozy. We had our storage server OS drive crash on our domain which required a reinstall. Luckily the data stores were all there still on a separate RAID, so it was just a matter of redoing the shares after the reinstall. However
we ran into a problem with several laptop users.

As soon as they plugged into the network today, all the work they did during the outage appears to be gone. They appear only to have access to the files on the network (which of course isn't current). As a test, I've tried disconnecting them from
the local network to check their offline files (disabling wireless and unplugging the dock) and they appear to lose access to everything as a result now... both desktop and files.
I've attempted a sync in Sync Center but it simply says "Sync Pending" and hangs there.

When I try to navigate to view my offline files on the system through the Sync Center interface, it says "The system cannot find the file specified."

Out of curiosity, I tried manually navigating to Windows\CSC and access is denied. Even when attempting to take ownership as local admin, it still doesn't want to let me in.

As many of the solutions suggest, I know I could delete the cache and format the db and sync fresh from our network, but they will lose out on all the changes they've made to their documents over the past week or so. They may lose out on a significant
amount of work.

Just a quick question.

I have read in some places that it is better to create two accounts on a Windows PC- a "standard user" account (used for most day to day activities) and a password protected "administrator" account for when it is necessary to install software or make system changes. Apparently, this may help to guard against malware in some instances.

Can anyone comment on whether this actually leads to any improvements in security in practice ? Is it actually worth doing most day to day PC activites as a standard user ?

Microsoft dont really mention this to the average home user.

Could anyone explain the differences to me.
Also, does anyone know a good piece of virus toolkit that can actually remove them as well as prevent them?


A:Difference between a "virus removal tool" and a "patch"?

A virus removal tool removes the virus from your computer meaning that the file is already on your system and running, so it stops it from running and removes the file. A patch however is used to prevent bad things from being installed, usually released when big worms hit, like SoBig, MSBlast, CodeRED...etc...So patches are to prevent and removal tools are to remove files already installed.

Not a major issue, of course, purely cosmetic, but still a minor annoyance none-the-less:

I have a number of card reader drives that I never use (haven't even removed that plastic cover tape from them to help keep the dust out) that show when viewing the "Computer" window that displays drives. Is there any way to hide specific unused drivers from this view? Not remove drive entirely, of course, I may need to use one in the future, but just to hide them so they aren't visible, until I may chose to make them visible again?

Thanks as always,


A:Hiding unused "removable storage" devices from "Computer" folder

Hello Russell,

You could check Hide empty drives in the Computer folder in Folder Options to have them stay hidden until you insert a card. When a card is inserted, the drive will display in Computer.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I just got a new Hewlett Packard computer with Windows XP. The CD drive is a combo CD reader, writer and DVD. The main reason I need it is to backup my many documents, database programs (RootsMagic family history, Quicken, etc.), photographs and drawings. The pre-installed burning program on the computer is Adaptec's (I think) Sonic RecordNow!, which is useless for my needs because of the way it works. The HP tech suggested I download DLA to enable me to use "drag & drop" through Windows Explorer, but I haven't had much luck with that, either. What I need is to be able to use a CD-RW as a giant floppy - to add, delete, copy, edit and move files, just as I do on my regular floppies, using "drag & drop" through Windows Explorer, or "save as...". What software do I need for this? Please use "baby-talk" with me, because I don't understand any of the initials, terms and technical language I see all over these forums. Thanks, Dellasha

Hey everyone,
        I am trying to get the REST queries to work with the sharepoint end points instead of graph end points. I first created an app with relevant permissions and have given it the admin consent. Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end

have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:

I was building a new array, using drives formatted with larger cluster sizes to get over the 15.8TB drive limit.
Since you can't 'remove' a drive in the GUI and have everything rebalance, I physically removed the drive while powered down.  Upon rebooting, Storage Spaces said there was a missing drive and I clicked "Remove" so that the repair work would
start (plenty of room since I'd just moved 7TB of data to the new array).

Then disaster hit.  One of my 1TB drives failed hours into the Repair process.
It appears the drive has failed - powers up, spins up but no computer can see it and it doesn't show up in the Disk Management tool.  I may have lost irreplaceable pictures and home movies.  I'd be using mirroring for just this reason.
HOWEVER - the 4TB drive I removed?  Haven't written a thing to it or used it in any way.  When I spin it back up, I get that Disk 14 is Healthy with "Storage Spaces Protected Partition".  Is there ANY way I can "re-attach"
this disk to the array to make up for whatever was on the 50% of the 1TB drive that was mirrored on the 4TB drive?  Only files who were on those two disks and no others would be affected and those are the ones I'm worried about.
Thanks in advance.

i just installed windows server 2008 on my desktop that runs windows server 2003 and windows XP. the OS choice menu was "windows XP and Windows svr 2003 before". but when i installed the win2k8 svr it changed to "pre vista OS and win2k8" when u select pre vista u can now choose b/w xp and win2k3. I want the system to automatically load xp when it is turned on. I toyed around with the boot.ini file with no avail.

A:OS choice menu changes to "prevista OS" and windows svr 2008.

As there are various boot entries there, you are to choose them in the boot menu. If you disable boot menu, you may be in problem in selecting the other OSs. But if you want XP as the default OS, you may do it using EasyBCD.

Doenload an older version (coz versions above 2.1 are paid) of EasyBCD from the links in the bottom right of the resulting page. Install it in either OS (to install in XP, you need .net framework 2 installed there). Run it. Click on "edit boot menu" in the right side pane. Select the XP entry. Move it up using the up arrow. Now, in the defaults column, check it as "yes" , and no/uncheck for the other entries. If you want, you may reduce the time , and then save the settings, close EasyBCD, and restart computer.

If you have installed the different OSs in different physical disks, thereis a chance of avoiding boot menu in boot time, and make XP as the default OS, without any waiting or selection keys.

I'm using Remote Desktop to connect to a storage server which has the Windows Search Service installed. If I navigate to a hard drive in Explorer, the Search box works as expected - the search begins as soon as something is typed, and the location changes to Search Results in [location]:

When I try to search from the Computer node (with the intention of searching all storage locations), nothing happens:

I can press Enter to close the suggestion box, and the magnifying glass button changes to a close button, but no search is performed.

This works perfectly in Windows 7. How is one supposed to search in all drives?

This will be my first post on this forum.

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Toshiba SATELLITE CL10-B-103 for my son. This CL10-B-103 had Windows 8.1 installed. This evening I planned to do the installation of the Windows 10 Upgrade because Windows 8.1 announced it was ready for the upgrade.

The proces went slowly but smooth and with no issue until now...... Since the laptop is equipped with only a 32 GB HD the upgrade proces informed I had to stick in a USB Stick. After this the proces continued smoothly but slowly, but that was no issue because I had the whole evening. However after the first restart of the system when it was at about 60 or 66% of the installation proces this error message showed: place the external storage and press OK. This is very strange since the USB stick was not removed at all and was still in the system. The more strange it is, is that both the OK-button as the Cancel-button are not selectable. Not via the touchpad and not via a Tab or an Enter.

Some online Windows 10 community post mentions that via the BIOS the system should be booted from this USB Stick. I have tried to restart the system with DEL, F2 or F8 but I could not get into the BIOS and was not able to change the boot sequence.

After each 'restart' the same error message appears. It does not matter whether the USB stick is in it or not.

So, my conclusion is my CL10-B-103 is hanging/is in a loop. I do not know how to proceed.

Please, I really can use some help.

I recently bought an OEM PC with Windows 8 pre-loaded. Oddly it doesn't have a product key printed on it. I was able to obtain it with BelArc but that is a different story. Anyway the wiki for Windows 8 lists four editions; RT, Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise. When I search Windows 8 on ebay\amazon I can only find Windows 8 Pro retail. What is standard Windows 8? Is that what people got for upgrading Win7->Win8?

Ideally I am looking for a Windows 8 standard ISO. With Windows 7 mydigitalriver had all the legal ISOs. The MDL forums are passing around links for Windows 8 Enterprise 90 day evaluation but I see nothing discussed about the standard edition.

I'm assuming my OEM PC was loaded with the "Standard Edition".

I want an ISO so that I can perform Windows 8 installations for people quickly. With Windows 7 I had every edition on different CDs\USB keys. I would install them fresh without a product key and either use their original or just purchase a key from an online retailer if they were unable to find their original.

A:Windows 8 "Standard Edition"?

Standard install iso contains both consumer editions. Core and Pro.

I think you will have to hunt for it - it should be easy.

Hi all,

I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:
Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] -- does not load properly (leads to OneKey Recovery) Safe Mode (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Networking (does not load properly) Safe Mode with Command Prompt (doesn't load - tries to boot and load all files onto partition that is too small.. can't change partition?)

I'm concerned that the Windows Embedded Standard 7 is not getting any updates when doing "Check for updates" in control panel.  I can see security patches being released in Windows Update Catalog that are applicable.  What might be happening?
QualityCompat reg key was added by Symantec EndPoint Protection 12.1 back January'18.

Hey, whats up? New here.

Right now my hard drive is split up into two partitions: System and Storage. However, when installing 7, for some odd reason, the installer put the boot manager (I think it is the boot manager) on my Storage partition, when I want it on the System partition. Is there a way I can non-destructively move the boot manager to the System partition and redirect to boot from there, instead of being located on the Storage partition and booting from the System partition. In essence, I want to move it and tell it to boot from itself. Is there a way to non-destructively do that?

Also, according to this tutorial (Product Key Number - Uninstall and Deactivate in Windows) I can deactivate 7. I was wondering, does that free up the install key for another use or is that use of the key permanently lost even though I deactivated 7?

A:Moving bootmanager from "Storage" partition to "System" partition

As long as it is not OEM version, you can move Win7 to any computer of your choice as often as you want - as long as it is on only one computer at a time. Just uninstall it first by running from Elevated Command Prompt the command slmgr -upk., or If you don't want the old installation just delete it using the Installation DVD or a partition manager.

Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings showing all columns, using the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, and we will give you the steps to move the System boot files to Win7 partition.

Hi guys, I ask you a lot of help because I'm in trouble up to my neck. I try to be as detailed as possible.
I have a Packard Bell with initially installed Windows Vista Home Premium (I don't know if 32-bit or 64-bit). Over time I updated it to later versions, and in fact before the problem I normally had Windows 10.

Brief introduction: as you know, telematic lessons have started in the world at home. So I installed Microsoft Teams and so far everything is ok. I noticed, however, immediately that the fan of my old PC with more than 10 years of intense work was starting to fuel quickly. While I was thinking about how to solve, the inevitable happened: during a lesson the PC freeze in the screens, and after waiting 5-10 minutes I turned it off by the button. By re-accessing it, this screen appeared, as the title says:

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have the disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

What I did: I searched on this and other sites but I was not able to juggle well. I understood that you need an installation CD, which I DO NOT ha... Read more

We have a Windows 2016 Server and are preparing it as an image to stand up other web servers. We are using Nessus professional for scanning, which is detecting critical errors for various versions of the Microsoft.NET Framework. The scan results specifically
state that none of the versions of "System.Web.Extensions.dll" under C:\Windows\WinSxs have been patched. Another critical error under the same Microsoft.NET Framework version is "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\system.dll has
not been patched".

The main issue is when we download the recommended patches from Microsoft, ensuring we download the patch for Windows Server 2016, and install them on the server it keeps stating "The update is Not applicable to your computer". Thank you for any guidance
you can offer.

I've found: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4558998 which I *think* is the July patch Tuesday update for WIndows Server 2019 (long term support channel).
1. Is there any way to confirm which KB is the "patch Tuesday"?
2. Why doesn't the above link, list all of the fixed KBs that have been rolled into it?
I did find this site: https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2020-1350
3. For example, for CVE-2020-1350, it does list 4558998 in the Security Updates table at the bottom. Does this imply CVE-2020-1350 is fixed by applying 4558998? But again, why isn't there just one page for 4558998 which lists all addressed CVEs?
My overall goal here is to be able to have a definitive list of cumulative updates and know exactly what is included in them.

After last tuesday-patching, my G15 Logitech keyboard will not start the software to the screen and the macro-keys after win goes to sleep.
AFAIK nothing has changed in my settings, or in the G15 software OR in the patch arriving from MS. So I have no clue whatsoever to where to look for an error.
Can somebody guide me, please?

A:G15 (blue backlight) and "sleep" after last tuesday-patch, problem

I have a G15, and sometimes it won't load the profiles after the PC has woken up from sleep. I don't think it has anything to do with the patch, it's just an idiosyncrasy of the G15 itself.

Try pressing the "profile mode" key by the LCD (leftmost button), It should rotate through your G15 apps and settle on your profiles if you press it enough. It seems to load the profile then. Mine's always done this, even before Tuesday's patch.

I don't know why, but that works for me.

So this last Tuesday (7/20/10) WoW was down for some maintnence. My friends and I were bored so we decided to screw around on a Private Server for a while until WoW was back up. Problem is, when i came back to play normal WoW I tried to log in and got a "Patch Required" message telling me I would have to restart WoW to download the patch. When I clicked the restard button below i got an error message saying "Failed to apply patch. Please try again later. If problem persists, you may have to reinstall the game or contact technicall support." Since than I have reinstalled WoW twice with my WOTLK disc and have called tech support twice as well. I feel like I have tried everything but I keep getting the same error message.

Please help in any way you can! Thank you!

A:World of Warcraft - "Failed to apply patch" error

I'm going assume you didn't tell tech support you were on a private server. Some of the private servers have their own wow.exe program. Did you delete that(if you downloaded one)?

Did you uninstall the game first or try to reinstall over the old files? If you tried to reinstall over the old files, uninstall the game then delete the directory and then reinstall it.

Just for giggles, check the realmslist.wtf file located World of Warcraft\Data\enUS and post what is in it.

I have a customized Asus M4A875-M system with:

- Phenom quad core 9750 CPU @ 2.4GHz
- 16GB RAM
- BluRay & DVD R/W optical drives (2)
- 500W Antec power supply
- 4 disks:
= drive 0 - Vertex2 80GB SSD 2.5"
= drive 1 - Toshiba 680GB 2.5"
= drive 2 - White Label 1TB 3.5"
= drive 3 - Seagate 1TB ST31000528AS (just upgraded drive firmware to CC49 from CC45)
= Windows 7 Ultimate
= OpenSUSE tumbleweed linux
= Linux Mint 17.2
= Windows 10
= Windows 7 Home Premium
= OpenSUSE v12.2

My boot loader is grub2 with a nice custom boot menu using this background image.

The issue is the Seagate drive is listed as an "unknown device" under Windows 7 Ultimate OS (along with 3 other volumes) despite the fact it works OK when I boot Windows 7 Home Premium. Haven't gotten Windows 10 to boot yet, so don't know about that, but its just fine under all of the Linux OSs too.

I have all of these backed up using Macrium on a 3TB external USB also.

All of the UUIDs for each disk and partition (volume) are unique as reported by gparted under Linux. Having an issue with Windows 10, but I'm saving that for a separate thread.

The Seagate was showing up OK before the FW and RAM update. I may have confused the Win 7 Ultimate OS when I had to remove the CMOS battery to reset mobo, and I forget to switch the SATA ports to AHCI mode. Win 7 Ult. booted up, but many volumes weren't recognized. When I discovered and fixed the move 4 items shown as "unkno... Read more

The 5167 label template is under Avery US Letter.
