Preferred Solution: Creating and editing GPOs not working

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.)

Okay, I really must be doing something wrong, but I don't think I am. We just recently moved to Windows 2000 and I am trying to set up GPOs in our domain. What I did was created a new OU for the domain. In this OU, I created a few OUs for various groups of computers (different PC labs we have), and OU for "students" and and OU for "faculty". I then moved the necessary computers into each computer OU and then placed the student global group and faculty global group into their respective OUs.

From here, using AD Users and Computers, I right click on an OU (Student OU for example) and choose the Group Policy Tab. I create a new GPO, choose to enable "Disable Control Panel" and then rename the GPO and close it out. I tried leaving it like this and did not work.

So I then clicked on the properties of the Student Global Group located inside the Student OU and chose the security tab, where I chose for the student global group READ and APPLY GROUP POLICY.

Still, did not work!!!

What am I doing wrong?? Is there something else I should be looking at??

The same goes for GPOs I set up for any of the Computer OUs, like enabling the option to "Not show the last logged on user". No GPOs are effective right now.

Thank you all so much in advance!!

Hello,

I need to disable the below settings. I have tried using the below GPO settings, ran gpupdate /force and restarted 2 domain computers. I then logged into each computer with a different domain account. The live tiles were still changing. I am still able to add a PIN to the account. I was still able to add a Microsoft account. (I do not have a Work/School account but the option was still available. I added the same Microsoft account to both domain users. The Sync your settings is all grayed out and all set to off. However, I noticed the desktop background synced and the Favorites Synced. How do I disable all these settings so they cannot be used and are turned off?

Im after a program for editing Audio files. I have played around with Cool Edit but find it isnt very friendly. i can never seem to be able to do basic functions that i would expect from an audio editing program. i also want a program that i can use to creat audio files. i had a friend who had a great program where you had multi tracks and could choose an instrament and set it to play what ever note u want and then mix it all together. sadly i have fallen out of contact with him, and cant remember what the program is called. does anyone have any suggestions on a program that would do such functions? thanx

The other thing i wanted to ask about (i didnt want to start two threads). is my tv capture program has messed up. it was working fine untill all of a sudden when i open it, it takes a freeze frame of the selected channel, keeps it on screen with no audio, and then ends up "not responding". the program is called VisionTV . i doubt people would know it. but can anyone think of a reason as to why this problem maybe occuring? i want to get a different program to use, as this one isnt very good. but is it true that these programs are specific to the tvcapture card that they come bundeled with? thanx guys

Hi,

My company recently moved to a new location and I was having everyone change their email signature in Outlook. Unfortunately, 2 of the employees were unable to select anything in their email options. They are both using Outlook 2003 SP2 Small Business Edition. When I tried changing it is has the current signature option but the drop down to change between the sigs is gray and the box to edit isn't available. I also tried to change it within the email itself by right clicking on the current signature and selecting the option but that is also all grayed out. The only benefit in this screen is it will actually let me choose between the different sigs currently available, but still won't let me edit or create a new one. Has anyone else had this problem or know a way of fixing it?

Hi, I have T460p/Windows 7 x64 with Access Connections 6.26.80 installed. Laptop is not on domain, users are part of Administrators group.Access Connections worked for some time fine - new networks were detected and location profiles could be created, edited or deleted without any problems.Buttons for Create/Edit/Delete profile suddently became disabled (probably after some Lenovo update) and I am not able to get this program working normally again.I've tried several things:- ticked checkbox for non-admin users to be able to edit location profiles, but this did not help. - uninstalled AC, reboot, installed again (installation was done using admin account)...but no success, everything is the same - I cannot add or edit location profiles even I am operating as admin user,- tried with previous AC versions (79) and newer versions (85) - but again no luck. I could uninstall it and not use it again, but to use some other simillar software. But since the laptop has WWAN, now I am not able to use it, since I have no possibility to add or configure WWAN network access. Also I am not able to create WLAN hotspot. I have no idea what to do else, except to reinstall Windows again, but it could happen again...so that is not actual solution to this problem. Anyone had this issue? Thanks in advance!

Any suggesting on what i could maybe download for free or up to $20 from Cakewalk or Magix. All i want is something basic. I did pick up something called Midi studio (Magix) at best buy for $10 a few years ago after XP was released but this software i'm assuming was copywrited in 2001 before the release of xp. the system requirements for this software are as follows:

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 95, 98, 2000. Computer: Pentium with 200Mhz minimum, 32 MB (64 MB) minimum, 100 MB free disk space minimum, resolution 800 x 600 with 16 bit High-Color 16 bit sound card, CD-ROM drive. Microsoft mouse or compatible, DirectX 6.1

I'm pretty new to Group Policy Management. I just got a job at a school and one of my labs is not working like it should. I have done GPRESULT on a computer from another working lab and I'm comparing it to the computer in the lab I'm at now. So, in my
GPM, a couple polices are listed above my designated labs that should be inherited by all the labs, and then I have some of those same policies duplicated in just my troublesome lab. My question is, will having a duplicate GPO break things? I'm probably not

Bit of a pickle, this one, chaps.

We have a windows 2003 server, with active directory installed, as well as DNS and DHCP services.

Let's say we have a main forest on our domain, called domain.kais - and within this domain, we have two Organisational Units, called OU1 and OU2. Within each OU, let's say we have 10 users.

Go to Group Policy Editor, and apply a new GPO to say OU1. You make all the settings you want, but for simplicity, let's say the only setting you do is something ridiculously simple, like, remove Recycle Bin from the laptop. You make the GPO called something like "OU1 GPO", link it to the OU, make sure it's the only GPO linked to it (so take away the standard Default Domain User GPO).

Go to a workstation, log on with a user from within that OU. Because you can log on, the assumption is that the network works fine, as the user gets authenticated. To make sure it's not a locally cached user, you created a brand new user within the OU.

So, if that works, any idea why the GPO isn;t taking effect? it's really getting to me now!

A:Windows 2003 Server / GPOs

Well heres a couple of things -

http://www.activedir.org/gp_faq.htm - A nice who what when why and how of Group policies it does mention 2000 and not 2003 but it still applies in most cases.

On the workstation once logged in go to your command line and do a gpupdate /force and see if that yields its results.

Oh yeah and another thought how is DNS running on your network? if you do an ping of a machine name from the clients not getting the update do you get back the FQDN or does it just show the machine name?

Morning everyone,

I am working with Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, in a network environment and I am trying to test it with our old GPOs we use on XP machines.

I am currently trying to install GPSI's such as Office etc.

When I reboot the machine after a GPUpdate I can only see 'Please Wait' while it installs the updates, but I know some of these updates will hang. I won't know what's hanging if I can't see what stage of the update it is at.

Is there anyway of customising this area of the startup to display which updates are installing?

Like in Windows XP where the box would appear in the middle of the screen saying "Installing Managed Software <Program Name>" etc.

Thanks for any help you can give regarding this.

In trying to adhere to the disable Dr. Watson crash dumps STIG, I need to locate which GPO setting that disables the crash dumps. I'm aware of the ways to disable the createcrashdump in the regisrty or deleting the AeDebug registry key. However, I have a GPO that is enabling the crash dumps. (I know this because everytime I manually disable it and refresh my group policies it is re-enabled.)

I've been able to isolate which GPO is enabling the crash dumps by unlinking all my GPOs and re-linking them one by one to locate the culprit. I've manually looked through the policy settings of the GPO enabling the crash dumps and can't find anything that would disable the create crash dumps. I was wondering if anyone knew off hand how to disable the Dr. Watson crash dumps or disable Dr. Watson completely through a Group Policy Setting.

I'm all googled out on this one. Any assistance would be great thanks.

Unless someone knows what they are doing changing anything in a registry isnt really a good idea as it can cause a lot more problems then solve them.If the registry is damaged enough by cleaners etc, the only thing left to do is do a repair or a reinstall.It might be that the cd/dvd drive is toast and needs replaced and altering the registry isnt going to fix that.When you said the computer crashed im going to assume that another harddrive was installed.Changing harddrives isnt going to make a cd/dvd drive disappear that i know of unless the driver for the cd player was deleted somehow by accident.

I would like to be able to make audio adjustments and audio changes to a few screencast videos.  I do not really undestand Audacity; but tried learning it many years ago.  I am absolutely not confident nor comfortable with learning Movie Maker; I am not sure how to handle Bandicam, having tried it briefly many many months ago.  I am comfortable with and have used Screencast-o-matic, the free downloadable version, a few times, and it was fairly easy to learn and to use.  I would just like to learn and use something a little bit more clever than Screen-cast-o-matic, and to edit or make changes to some video recordings.  FREE/FREEWARE wanted.

Hey, cafejose! I have used Movie Maker before. It is not that difficult in fact. And for freewares, then you can see some recommendations of ShowMore.

Despite having run a Norton scan on an .exe file I downloaded (called qtf.exe or qtj.exe I think), the file carried malware. I thereafter used Malwarebytes which quickly identified 3 infected files to be removed. Unfortunately, after restart. Malwarebytes did not start again properly to remove them and I had lost my internet connection.

The virus created lots of new folders with spuninst.exe in the end and also in the Internet explorer 8 folder plus numerous others. These were all written in bright blue text which makes it easy to identify the folders.

Most important programs have been disabled and I cannot get online (safari is starting but without a connection). My norton antivirus is disabled and I cannot launch the program.

I tried to run a repair from the Windows DVD but without success. It could apparently be due to the fact that the DVD has an older version and can therefore not repair a more recent SP update(?).

Is there a good antivirusprogram that can be booted directly from a CD drive (which does not require an internet connection to start working) which I could download on another computer and burn to disc?

Hi,
I'm hoping someone can see a pattern between the software that works and doesn't work on my Windows 7 64 bit laptop.

In the past month (Jan-Feb 2011) a lot of the software I use to edit or display images and graphics will no longer run (crashes). System: Windows 7 64 bit SP1. 3 GB RAM, 500 GB HD Acer 6492 laptop with mobile intel 965 express graphics card. Windows Update reports it is up to date.

I don't get BSOD, just that when I start one of the affected programs, it fails to run and shuts down.Windows continues to run fine. I either get "___ has encountered a problem and needs to close" or "___ has stopped working, Windows is searching for a solutio to the problem".

Programs that won't run:
Google Earth neither Directx nor GL
PhotoPlus X4
Paintshop Pro X3
Xara Designer Pro 6

Programs that run fine
Picasa
PanoramaPlus
PanoramaStudio

I wonder what is the pattern or common denominator.

Symptom started roughly when I installed a new 500 GB drive (Seagate Momentus XT with 4GB RAM buffer 7200 RPM) in place of the 500 GB non-hybrid 5400 RPM drive. This is the 4th drive I've had in this laptop 160GB -> 320 GB -> 500 GB -> 500 GB with 4 GB buffer. Each time I had a Norton Ghost image of the C: drive, installed the new drive and restored the image to the C: drive. Windows fires up without a hitch. On some software I had to re-activate the licence as I guess the software noticed a change in ... Read more

A:Certain image editing/viewing software "stopped working" Window close

Seems you did everything you could, however, have you run (full scan) of your anti-virus and malware software. Not sure if it would help, but it cannot hurt. Also you might attempt reinstalling the last HDD to see if there isn't a problem there. If not then it would be wise to attempt to reformat the 500 to see if that is the problem. Good Luck.

I don't know the cause or solution for your problem, but you could try one of the alternative methods offered in the article at the following site;

I've looked all over the net but just cant seem to find a reliable source for creating a zip boot disk. I own an Iomega ZIP 100 internal ATAPI drive and would like to place my drive image app onto it. I want the zip disk to be bootable not unlike a standard floppy disk. My OS is Windows 2000 Pro so FORMAT /S and FDISK /MBR are no where to be found. Tools which allow me to copy the MBR of floppies refuse to transfer the sector image to the much larger capacity Zip disk.

I'm currently testing the Acrolis True Image drive image app which has crerated a rescue disk for me. It seems geared toward floppy disks but it was successful in installing the DOS rescue data to my Zip disk. A quick scan of the sector 1 on the Zip disk reveals something like a MBR, though on rebooting and using the Zip disk I get the error message: Non-system disk. The BIOS has the boot order of ZIP, Floppy, the HDD-0. The MBR appears to be identical as the floppy MBR but the Zip disk generates the Non-system Disk error message. Weird.

How do i successfully create a bootable Zip disk for my DOS-based 5MB drive image app? Normally under MSDOS I'm able to access the ZIP Drive (as B: or D without any extra drivers. I suppose the motherboard BIOS is handling all of this.
 

A:Creating a "working" ZIP Boot Disk?

You're right about that BIOS controlling boot process. Though I'm not too experienced with bootable media, I can tell you that if you go into BIOS and you see anything that remotely resembles a boot order menu, go to it and change the boot order so that the drive you want to boot from is first in the list. Your BIOS is probably different, but mine displays the name of the device, and not the drive. If yours is like that, it is much easier of course, because there's no guessing game.
After you're done doing that, you can just go back into BIOS and reverse the changes. I hope this works, because ZIPs might just not be bootable. I really don't know personally. But I know what I said above from personal experience.

I'm trying to learn here. I SSH'd into my iPhone and found a file I want to edit for a game called Dungeon Hunter. The thing is this file is based in Hex. I don't know how to edit it. I went and got the program HxD. And I have looked up how to do this stuff. I've asked many other websites but TSG is loyal and everyone is helpful.

My biggest thing is I wanna learn how to control and edit my character stats. Change how much strength or dexterity my character has and so on and so forth. If maybe I hosted the file or answer any questions could someone help me in any way?

I think it would be great for me to learn so I can just learn something new but I don't understand the whole binary thing and no website has been helpful enough.

Anyone able to help me out?

Thanks guys

hi,
i am trying to figure out what i need to buy to transfer my (vhs-c) tapes to dvd. My husband uses macs, but we have a pc also. He wants to edit the vhs-c tapes (which can be made into regular vhs with the ADAPTER), and put them to dvd.

any recommendations...

thanks
 

A:vhs to dvd with editing

You'll need two things:
1) A method to capture the video/audio (hardware)
2) Software to edit/change and write to dvd.

Before you begin though, realize many home dvd players will NOT play burned media. They eject burnable media and wont play them as normal dvd's. If you have a dvd recorder or home theatre pc with a dvd drive, these should play them just fine.

Another caveat is protected VHS tapes may have macrovision code on them to prevent copying. If these are home videos, this isn't a problem. If they are recorded TV shows (some send protected macrovision) or store-bought videos, it could be a problem.

Now for what you need.. to address #1; hardware capture.
The cheapest route is a VIVO capable or AIW-style capture card. These have video-inputs and you can use freebie software like AMCap or Movie Maker built into Windows XP as the software to capture. Most VIVO cards or AIW cards have support for S-video or composite (RCA cable) input and you just record to your hard disk the video. You can capture audio at the same time by using an adapter on the line-in/mic-in on your soundcard, or AIW cards have their own audio input jacks already. Either way, no real difference.

This will allow you to capture your vhs recordings to a file on your PC.

Step #2 is the software to edit/author your captures and record to CD. Again, Movie Maker included with windows has some easy methods to do this. You may wish to experiment with this right now... Read more
