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.)

Has anyone come across this issue before when using Lync. Lync 2013 stuck at "Contacting server and signing in" on all computers. Don't get any errors or timeouts.

Hey 

We got the problem that when the Add-Ons Lync Browser Helper and Lync Click to Call is active the start page of Office 365 portal.office.com loads very slowly and the CPU goes up to constant 30%, also the page is the very slow over the hole time you use
it. If you jump to a other site outlook/SharePoint/Yammer etc. then every thing works fine and fast. If we deactivate this Add-Ons the access to this portal.office.com page is fast. Not all of the user are affected even on the same machine.
Workarounds are, disable the Add-Ons or use the inPrivate Mode or use the compatibility mode. 

Any idea why the Problem occours for some users?

I'm having a Skype job interview next. The guy interviewing me is using Skype for Business. I have Skype installed on my home computer but not the business kind, just regular Skype. The guy sent me an email link to click on which says "Join Skype Meeting" - I tried clicking on it just to see what happened -- even though it's not the day for the interview -- and I got these screen messages:

"How would you like to join your meeting? "Install and join with Skype meetings app (web)" -- "Join with Skype for Business (desktop")

I've never used Skype this way before -- I've always had someone Skype me in advance of the interview, ask to be added to my "contacts" list, then they Skyped me at the designated time and I had my Skype already open to receive.

What do I do? Do I click on his "Skype for Business (desktop) link? Do I first have to open my Skype program on my laptop or install something else?

This old Luddite is really worried about screwing my interview up. Any help is GREATLY appreciated?

This is to discuss something regarding Microsoft Skype for business. Recently from a blog, I read some advantages about this http://www.thinktel.ca/blog/general-category/5-reasons-use-microsoft-skype-business/. Is there any windows mobile app versions of Skype for business. If then, can I get all facilities as in the desktop version. I have one more question related to this. Can I share HIPAA, FERPA, or other sensitive data using Skype for Business? I am expecting your replies. Thank you in advance.

A:About Skype for business

Skype is mostly used for making video calls, texts and most of the business companies use Skype to connect with their clients. All the Skype to Skype calls, videos , file transfer and instant messages are encrypted that is why business companies use it for remote team conference.

Hi, I have several users that are experiencing audio issues when trying to use Skype for Business 2016.   The issue is that when they Skype call out to a contact their mic and speakers or just microphone will not work.   The microphone not working is the most common issue.   However, they can have a contact call them and their microphone and speakers will function normally.  Here are the steps that I've tried to correct the issue: Quick Repair of Office 2016.Full Repair of Office 2016.Full removal of all Office products and reinstall of Office 2016.Update to latest sound drivers Conexant ISST Audio 9.0.100.99 -- this causes both microphone and speakers to not function at all.Revert sound drivers for Conexant ISST Audio to 9.0.100.63 -- this allows for the user to be able to recieve Skype calls but not be able to make Skype calls.Full removal of all sound drivers - restart - allow Microsoft to reinstall drivers.None of the items above have fully corrected the issue and it appears to be a specific issue with the Conexant ISST Audio drivers used by HP. Any ideas on how to correct this issue? Thank you!

Hi everyone,
I am having a problem with the Realtek microphone in Skype.
The symptoms are as follows:
Shortly after beginning of the conversation the other party cannot hear my voice. Video is fine, the voice of the other party is also fine.
When this happens the microphone green bar in Options/audio settings will not be seen when speaking into it.
However I can hear what's spoken into the microphone in the local speakers.
I uninstalled the microphone in manager, re-installed the driver, did not help.
Uninstalled the Realtek hi-def audio driver. This helped first but then after 4 minutes talking the problem returned again.
 
I can see that when this happens the speaker icon in 
Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\manage audio devices\recording\microphone\microphone properties\levels
is crossed out. If I uncross it and put boost and level above zero the other party can hear me again.
This happens spontaneously, by itself. Even without Skype running, so this is why I think it might be a driver problem.
 
Any ideas? (please no "reinstalled driver" advice - has done so multiple times)

A:Realtek Microphone/audio driver fails in Skype on 2015 DELL Inspiron 15 7000 series

Methinks it is solved. Ran malware bytes, cleaned up stuff, rebooted.

Hi!

There is Skype for Business 2019 and there are SfB 2016 Basic clients. The problem is that missed calls are not displayed in the client's mail. Missed conversations are saved. Outgoing calls and answered ones too, but unanswered calls not.

If you go to the mobile client under the same account, then all calls are immediately displayed.

I tried different versions of the Office - it doesn't help.

Where to dig? UC is not deployed.
There is only one user who has Office 19 Pro with a built-in Skype client and everything is fine with him. Everyone else does not work for Office 13. MAPI and EWS status - OK

There was no unified messaging system and was not included, but I noticed that in the configuration of clients it does not work for whom - ExumEnabled - TRUE, and for the one working at the office 19 and ExumEnabled - FALSE

How to change this value? In Exchange, UM accounts are disabled
----
The ExumEnabled parameter shows FALSE when executing the GEt-CSUSer command

But the Skype Exum Enabled client configuration parameters are TRUE

Hi Useless User and welcome to Tenforums.

You can disable Skype for Business from starting with Windows permanently, by opening Task Manager; under the Startup tab, select the app and click the Disable button.

Alternately, you can go to All Settings> System>Apps & features, highlight Skype Meetings App, and select Uninstall.

Hope that helps!

I bought a new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon few days before. While overall it performs excellent, it keeps disconnecting from Skype for Business during calls. Atleast twice, it has disconnected me from skype during my screen sharing live calls. It doesnt happen with any of my other laptops on Windows and Mac so I dont think this case should be opened for Microsoft. The Wifi connection is stable during such examples. Looks like there could be an issue that must be resolved. Any suggestion please ? Best regards,Kailash

We have started to find that we cannot make Skype calls with video from the integrated camera in Skype for Business on our 6th Gen laptops that are newly built. Every other application is able to use the camera but not Skype for Business, although, in the video settings for the app, it shows an image from the chosen camera. We have tried repairing and also reinstalling Microsoft office and the app individually, also tried different accounts. Installing different or updated drivers from the Lenovo Support website do not seem to make an impact either.

A:Bitdefender IS 2015 vs ESET Smart Security vs Panda IS 2015

ESS is overall winner imo. why?
* It's CPU usage is 0% in my system most of time. I'm using ESS 9 beta so mine takes 100+ MB ram but it will take less ram then it in stable version. Ram is not the issue here coz AV who use ram r better then who use page file to hide their actual ram. Ram is faster then HD.
*System impact is very less on almost every system i feel like feather in my system but it depends wut system u r using. If u r using dinosaur age system like atom processor with 1 GB ram & slow HD then it ESS will feel u slower. No slow boot time issue not even when doing gaming or multitasking.
*User interface is good & can be understandable but it's ' more ' friendly to whom who knows how to configure it. If u r a newbie with no knowledge how to configure it then u can be in trouble. Check for guru guidance of ESS

Hi all,

New beta version is released: AVAST 2015 R5 Beta 5 (build number 2015.10.4.2230) and AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 6 (build number 2015.10.4.2231).

Today we again released 2 beta versions in order to test a new mechanism that will allow to avoid some compatibility issues in the future. For this beta testing we set the rule that machines with Windows XP will be able to update only to version 2230, all other machines will update as usual to the latest version 2231.

We won't limit XP users in the future. This is just for testing purposes.

Changes:
- fixed problem with update condition for Windows XP users. Now users with XP shouldn't be able to install/update to build 2231 (NEW: AVAST 2015 R4 Beta 3(2015.10.4.2229))
- fixed issues with Outlook 2003 context menu (Outlook 2003 issues with new release)
- fixed crashing of service during VPS update ([2227/2228 BUG] Strange behaviour with manual VPS update)

How to install:

1. If you have installed some beta version before you can update it to this latest version via Settings->Update->Program.

2. Or you can download and install from here:

A:Avast 2015 R2 SP1(build number 2015.10.2.2215)

Thank you @Secondmineboy! This may be just what I need, although I've not experienced the dreaded BSODs (yet) our Avast! has been behaving (..how can I describe it?) with an 'ultra-hardened' web site scanning manner that does not allow all connections. Happily, I'm able to log on here to MT!

Edit: I appreciated this thread because it reminded me, especially since I've been under the weather, that something was definitely wrong with our 8.1 system. This became noticeable after updating the program a few days ago. I'd experienced connectivity problems with sites such as Gmail & The Chrome Store (thankfully not MT) and most often when using Opera while somewhat less using Firefox, a notice from Avast! would alert the site's certificates were invalid, and Opera would advise trying again because of a problem with my VPN. The difference with this corrective update is Avast!'s VPN which I do not subscribe to is now gone! Ahhh, life's nearly back to normal.
Now, if I can only get over this virus... (It's one effecting my body, & not my computer system).

When I restart (not that often), but today I changed the settings for My Fancy Cache program and that required a restart.

While many here complain that after cold start or restart Metro pops up, you guys go to the desktop with one click.

But everytime I have to go to Task Manager to kill MS Lync, I really do not use that, do not need it neither.

So any ideas how I can remove this from my pc without regretting this after.

thanks

Jeff

Hi there
can't you just Uninstall it -- try control panel =>programs and features=>change / uninstall. (select Ms office).

presumably if you want to re-install just do the same process - ensure you keep a copy of the .iso / .exe file.

I'm running office 2010 so I don't think I've got this particular piece of software installed anyway - Enterprise version (or VL version) might have this included automatically but you should be able to "Not install" it.

Hi everyone, I am running into a little issue with my Lync 2013. I must be missing some information but I can't log into lync no matter what I try. I bought the 2013 office home use program for 11 dollars so it came with lync 2013. How do I use this little thing? Looks so neat yet I can't log in T.T
I'm using Win8 x64 btw.
Error is: Cannot sign in because the server is temporarily unavailableThanks all!

A:How do I use lync 2013?

Put in your corporate email address, user ID and password and it should connect. Of course you need to be running Lync Server 2010 or 2013 at your corporate office for it to work.

I have lync 2013 installed on this computer and i just installed outlook 2010 and ive started seeing this message. before anyone says it. yes i have gone and made sure that outlook is the default mail client also outlook has all its windows updates.

Also I have continues to research the problem and followed the microsoft fix for it with no success... although the error says outlook it only generates when lync is running not outlook
 

A:lync/outlook issue

I don't see outlook running on the task bar? Lynx uses outlook to find the address it needs to communicate with. I don't have to run outlook for lynx to work at the office but is probably the way its set up. At home you may need to have outlook running?

This link http://www.brighthub.com/computing/windows-platform/articles/66114.aspx proved to work for some according to the comments.
