Lenovo Peer Connect generating huge log file

Q: Lenovo Peer Connect generating huge log file

I see a program installed on my Lenovo ThinkPad X1 (running Windows 8.1) that is generating regular log files (with a .txt extension) in the Users/Public/Lenovo/Lenovo Connect folder. It appears to have been installed on 10 January 2014. One of these files recently was over 40GB! The files are eating up my hard drive space. Is it safe to remove them? And safe to uninstall Lenovo Peer Connect? I'm not sure what it does.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo Peer Connect generating huge log file

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.)

I have the same question. It is eating my space and since my SDD is not so big, it is becoming crucial to operate the laptop. Could anyone please share the info is it safe to delete the files (and, if necessary, what else should be done before removal)?

All of a sudden, my 300gb HD is filling up and I've determined something is creating huge (80-150gb) temp files. I delete them and they come back a few days later. I haven't installed any new programs except a few Topaz Photoshop plugins so I can't figure out what is making this huge file. Any ideas of how I can isolate the problem or limit the size of temp files? Thanks!

I sometimes tether to my smartphone (HD2, running Windows Mobile 6.5) with an app called WMWiFiRouter, which creates a wi-fi hotspot using the 3g connection of the phone.

Despite "router" being in the app's name, it sets the connection up as a peer-to-peer (adhoc) network.

This works with computers I have used it with running Windows XP and Windows 7. It also works with an Ipod Touch and Ipad I have.

However, so far I cannot get it to work on my new Windows 8 laptop. It connects to the adhoc network, but reports it as having "No Internet Access" (although other computers and devices can connect to the Internet through it), and indeed, one cannot connect to any web site, nor read e-mail, etc., with the Win8 computer when connected to my tethered wi-fi network.

I tried turning off the Windows Firewall. Didn't help. Same problem.

Does anyone reading have an idea, how I can get the Windows 8 laptop (Lenovo X230) to connect to the Internet through the adhoc network of my smartphone, as my Windows XP and 7 computers can, and other devices?

Thank you in advance for your help.

A:Cannot connect to Internet through peer-to-peer connection

Problem still unresolved. I hope that someone can help.

In case the following info would be helpful, the Windows 8 laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad X230.

The wireless adapter is Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205.

I did several searches on this and couldn't locate anything so I'll through this out here and see if I get lucky...

Generally, when in a hotel that doesn't have wireless or in an airport that only has an AT&T pay plan I find a P2P connect that is strong and good. I connect quickly but... that's it. I can't connect to the internet so I am done, since that is what I was connecting to do.

Is it possible to connect to the internet on a P2P? If so, what do I need to do to make it happen?

Thanks for your input.
 

A:Can't connect to Internet on peer-to-peer

Do you mean you connect to an ad-hoc wireless network? I would expect that most ad-hoc networks in a hotel or airport are by some shady character sitting in the corner hoping to get some sucker to connect to it so he can try to infect their computer or grab sensitive information off it.

If I try to rename the folder my inbox emails just disappear. I have
a program called DBXtract that I've used to try and workaround with no

Could mail settings with my ISP (verizon) somehow affect settings

A:Outlook Express Generating Odd Dbx File ?

Do you also still have an Inbox.dbx along with the Inbox (1).dbx, or just the one?I'm still looking through Google about this, but here's something you could try. First off, do some backing up first so nothing important is lost forever. A lot of this backing up is redundant, but we want plenty of options left to try.1. Go into your identity and copy the whole darned OE Identity folder into My Documents.C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities(You probably only need the folder containing your dbx files, but we're playing it safe.)2. Create a "Backup" folder in OE and move the emails from your Inbox to that folder.2a. Optional. You didn't say exactly how DBXtract failed to help you. But if you doubt it recovered a usable backup of your emails, here is another program (free) that I saw mentioned on several forums.Outlook Express Extraction (scroll down a bit to find it)http://macallan.club.fr/index.htmUnfortunately I haven't found any description of what it looks like, what it actually does, or how to actually use it.

Hi

I basically downloaded a rar file that had a JPG within it, and I had the 'Hide extensions for known file types' activated so didn't realise that it was a .exe in disguise, had I de-selected the hide extensions option I would have realise it was a .exe and would have left it alone. But stupidly I clicked on the JPG, school boy error I know, and it did nothing, so that then made me suspicious. Then I uploaded rar file, re-downloaded it to make sure everything worked ok, and inside the rar file was one of these JPGs that is really a .exe.

I first downloaded the initial rar that contained the mysterious JPG/.exe file I clicked on the JPG and nothing happened, but now it seems to be generating these files everytime I compress to rar. When I first compress something the file size increases slightly, which is obviously the opposite of what should happen, and when I unpack it the JPG isn't there. Then, when I upload it, and then re-download it the file appears!!?? I have tried various file hosting sites and it happens on all of them so it isn't site specific.

Years ago, my friend and I would use a program called QModem (DOS terminal emulation software?) to dial each others' modems and chat in real-time. I mean the keystrokes would appear on the other end as they were typed. These days, instant messaging is instant as soon as you push the enter key. I would like to know how to do this "old school" style. Well, if we figured out how to do this 10+ years ago with 14,400 baud modems, surely there is a way to do it via the Internet now. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

And while I'm at it... is there freeware that will allow two people on the Internet to do application sharing? Thanks again.
 

A:how do I set up a peer-to-peer real-time text-based chat session

Most of that instant message type software is already very capable of displaying real time keystrokes because it will often indicate the person on the other end is typing a response before it is actually sent. I think there is some sensitivity to blatant real-time keystroke monitoring and allowance for modification of typos and incorrect or misleading sentence structure these days that is supposedly a more refined approach to "instant" communication. I tend to agree.

For the second part there are specific apps designed for sharing and collaboration such as the office-type suite of programs included in Google Docs and there's always the quasi "sharing" effect one gets with online assistance or remote access with collaborative functions enabled. Also, online apps such as Adobe Photoshop Express offer application sharing in the strict sense but you probably meant it to be real or near real-time collaborative as well?

Ok guys here is the deal.......
I have a Peer-Peer network with 15 computers in one location and than it is connected through a router to another another peer-peer network behind another router. I have setup an IP route to between the routers and an IP route to the inside of both routers. The computers are able to ping each other, map drives and share anything that is needed. I have Operating systems on the computers ranging from Win95/98/ME/XP. What I need to do is be able to set it up to where all of the computers in both networks on seperate Subnets can see all of the other computers in the Network Neighborhood. I have looked at using LMHOSTS for this but do not know what I am missing in setting that up correctly and do not know if that would work for all of the machines with differant OS on them.

A:2 peer-peer Networks needing to see all Computers in Network Neighborhood

Host files would be a nightmare to maintain between the number of computers you are talking about. You would need some way of keeping a copy on each PC so they were all identical. I am still not sure this would take care of your network neighborhood issue. In the LMHOST file there is an example of the way the entries should be entered. Why not get an NT box and set up WINS on it, then you would have some sort of central administration of user accounts and access to resources. You are at the limit for peer-to-peer networking anyway. You don't need a fancy $5000 dollar server to run NT4...any workstation with good disk size and speed and a good amount of memory will do.

Dos standards. All the rest access this shared folder (the net name is G:) and run the executable file. What happened recently is that one of the two new added systems was not used for sometime (about 3 hours) and when the user tried run the program, it kicked
out all the rest of the computers (working or idling) exempt the one acting as the server. Even after rebooting the server acting machine and the rest of the workstations computers the connection to the net shared folder could not be established again for

A small business has a DSL connection to the Internet with 4 public IP addresses. These 4 addresses are assigned by their ISP via DHCP. The small business has 4 PCs that are networked via a Linksys switch and are assigned the 4 public IP addresses. I can ping these addresses along with other IP addresses in the same subnet from my network (which is not part of their network).

The business wants to set up Windows peer-to-peer networking between their 4 systems. My question is: What is their exposure if they do this? Since their ISP is assigning addresses to other customers in the same subnet, I'm assuming that the other customers in the same subnet could potentially see the shared Windows resources on their network.

Do I strongly recommend that they get a router and use NAT? Or is there some other solution? Or am I missing something?

Hi

I have 2 desktops and a laptop connected to a router. All with fixed IP addresses and all with the same subnet mask and default gateway. All can connect to the internet.

I have had a peer to peer network running for over a year without problems. Suddenly the laptop has stopped being visible on the Mshome network.

I have checked and the Computer browser and Server services are running. The firewall is OK with exceptions allowed and the file and print sharing is one of those enabled exceptions.

I have checked Ipconfig and the settings are the same on all three machines other than the fixed IP addresses.

Does anyone have any ideas please?

TIA

A:Solved: XP Peer to Peer networking stopped working

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.

I have a home network setup using Microsoft network neighborhood for 4 PCs - all running on windows 98SE.

I recently added a windows 2000 PC into the mix - all machines are setup with file/ printer sharing enabled.

The windows 2000 machine can connect to any of the other PCs through network neighborhood (computers near me).

All of the windows 98 PCs can see the win 2000 PC, however only one of the windows 98 PCs can connect to the win 2000 PC.

When trying to connect, I receive the message:

Enter network password

You must supply a password to make this connection

Resource: \\HP-3265\IPC$

I never setup a password on the win 2000 PC, and can't quite figure out why one win 98 PC can connect.

The 98's Primary Network Logon is set to Microsoft Family Logon.

Any ideas or suggestions ??

Thanks - John.
 

A:Windows 2000 in peer to peer home network

To get this to work with w2k/xp in the mix, all the users on all the machines will have to be set up to use passwords on their user accounts. (you can then set up TweakUI on each to automatically sign on with the password)

For the 98 machines to access the w2k machine, you'll have to create additional users on the w2k that are identical to the users/passwords on all the other machines. Those passwords are the ones w2k is looking for at the prompt you're getting.

Total of 4 machines. 3 running XP, 1 is w2kPro.

All can see each other and all PC's can share properly but...when any XP box tries to access the W2k Pro machine a window pops up asking "connect to server" and asks for an ID and Password.

I never set up a password of anykind on the W2k machine.

I entered admin as the id and once I tabbed to the password line the ID field then changed to \\server\admin (don't know if that helps, 'server' is just what I chose to call it).

Thanks!

Hello.

I network an XP box and a 98 box via Ethernet. The two also share a DSL connection via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2). The router connects to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W). The switch has SIX ports: five used (Zoom router patch, XP patch, 98 crossover, 98 patch, Brother patch) and one unused labeled "uplink" (not sure what uplink is - not important, is it?).

I've attempted multiple times using Brother's software to configure a Peer-to-Peer printer via the XP box but the printer is not recognized on my network. USB config as Network Printer was a breeze but want Peer-to-Peer so I don't have to turn on XP box to print 98 box docs.

Brother's tech support was scripted as expected and wasn't of much assistance. One suggested there is an IP address conflict.

I'm at wit's end and now turn to you guys. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hey Guys, 

I am trying to setup a single sign on type configuration for some engineer's new test stand. The way the stand has been configured for their use is that there is a "controller" PC that is domain connected and there are two other PC's that are connected
via a work group that are not domain attached. I am trying to setup a way for the user to log onto the domain connected "Controller" PC and then auto login to the other 2 PCs. Currently the users have to login into all 3 PCs and it is becoming quite
cumbersome. I know I can use task scheduler to lock or log off these PC's quite easily but the log on piece has got me stumped. I am trying to avoid having to connect the non-domain PCs to the domain as that would complicate the use of the stand. I was thinking
of trying to configure a true SSO server but I think the controller would have to be the server in order for that to work. I was also considering LDAP but I think that the PC's would have to be domain attached. Any ideas of a way to script this function?
I am running Windows 7 on all 3 PC's and 2008 server for the domain 

Thanks

Check the status of any installed firewall, perhaps temporarily switching them off to see if this fixes the problem. If this is the cause you can manually add the IP as a trusted device to each firewall so they are not blocked.

I have a simple peer to peer network with about 10 workstations running some WIN98, WIN2k, and WIN/XP. I really don't want to get a full blown file server if I can avoid it. I was thinking of some sort of hardware device that I could back up too nitely that just looks like a server on the network. Anyone doing something like this....Or does everyone just have real file servers?

My boss wants to be able to access various stand-alone PC's from her stand-alone laptop, all runnning Win98.

I've managed at times to get the modems to communicate, I believe, but seem to be hanging up at the log-in process. I bought a Win98 manual(Microsoft publication), but its instructions for setting up this procedure seems superficial and inadequate.

I would appreciate advice on where I might find more detailed step-by-step instructions for setting up remote access networking, preferably from a source that will readily acknowledge, when appropriate, the shortcoming of the windows98 operating system.
 

A:Configuring peer-to-peer remote access in Win98

I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Are you trying to run applications from one computer on another?

The easiest way I know of is to use a program like PCAnywhere. That's what I have used for remote access over the Internet and I know of some people that used it internally over the LAN.

You may want to check out the Microsoft Knowledge Base for information regarding Windows 98's capabilities in that area.

Good Luck,

Jeff

A:Share Resource problems on Peer-to-Peer Network

Although you likely have a lot of this working, the basics for troubleshooting are:

1. Make sure you have the same IP scheme (e.g. 192.168.0.x).

2. Make sure you have the same Subnet Mask, Gateway, and DNS IP addresses.

3. Make sure you can ping the other computer's IP address. If this fails, just for testing, make sure you turn off XP's as well as any other firewall.

4. Make sure you can ping the other computers by name.

5. Make sure you have the same workgroup name (watch for trailing spaces)

6. For troubleshooting purposes, turn off XP's and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity after you get it working.

7. With XP, make sure you have the same username and password as the person logging onto the other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

Hello all

I've been ghosting using peer to peer via my linksys router for some time now. However, today, I tried ghosting my laptop to the hard drive of my computer (just your basic image file), and my computer just shuts down. Here is how far I get:

My computer is set as the slave
My laptop is set to master
They both connect through the linksys router and recieve ip address.
I start ghost on the laptop to create an disk to image file.
The process starts, then all of a sudden at random times (no more then 10 seconds into it), my slave computer just shuts down completely.

The only thing that is different on my computer is I ran out of space, so I deleted old backup programs (just the .exe's) that were not installed anymore. And did a defrag which I do every 2 weeks.

Windows run's normally and does not shut down. If I leave the slave running in ghost (while it's telling me to enter the ip address into the master computer), everything is fine and it doesn't shut down. It's only while the master is connected and starts writing the image file. The slave computer has two hard drives, and I've tried using both, and disconnecting one at a time and just using the one drive. Still with no luck.

any help is always appreciated. Thanks

My work has a small wireless network. 5 computers in all. Lets call them computers A through E.

Here is a little more info on the computers:
A: Windows 2000, wireless
B: Windows XP Pro SP2, wired into Linksys Wireless-G 2.4GHz router
C: Windows XP Pro SP2, wireless
D: Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, wireless, used as "file server"
E: Windows Vista Ultimate SP1, wireless

They are all part of a workgroup that allow file sharing over a peer to peer network. The main problem happens intermittently when only a few files are being opened by 2, maybe 3 people from the "server", or computer D. With 2 or 3 people accessing different files over the network, it will sometimes not let one person save their file, while another person can't access any files from computer D anymore. It will tell them they don't have access to computer D, and to contact the network admin.

I was just wondering if this is a resource problem with D. It has 2 Gb ram, 250Gb hdd raid 1 array, only 5 months old.

Thanks for any help, let me know if other information is needed.
 

A:Peer to Peer small network problems Vista/XP

I admit to not having experience with such a network, but it seems to me that having a "file server" connected via wireless is risky. If the files are of moderate or large size there could be a lot of contention for the Wi-Fi if 3 computers are accessing more or less simultaneously. Remember that wireless is half-duplex and devices have to take turns talking. Could you connect D by ethernet for a day and see if you still get the same problems?

Hi all. Well this problem is sort of really complicated and complex, and I'm not even sure if this is the right section to be posting it, so I do apologize. I have tried researching this problem but was not able to come to a solution.

So I play this online fighting game that utilizes P2P, where basically players "host" these rooms where 1-7 other players can join (maximum of 8 including yourself), and you play and fight with each other in like a Street Fighter kind of way. I never installed my Windows Updates until I recently heard about the free Windows 10 reserve, so I went ahead and installed a bunch of "Important Updates" and "Optional Updates."

I was able to reserve Windows 10, but ever since the installation, I would have bad connection "lag" to these other players if the room has 4 or more players. This was never the case before. I have tried resetting my router and even reformatted my computer and the problem still persists. I have a strong suspicion that one of these Windows Updates may have caused this. Is there even a possible way to pinpoint this exact problem and uninstall/ turn of the update?

Thank you.
