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 set my desktop with a Homegroup PW and have chosen what I would like to share with my portable (following the forum's instructional video). However, I do not know how to proceed from here in order to get the two computers to communicate. Do I have to go to my portable and enter the PW, and if so, how is this done?

I have two computers running Windows 7 Home Premium: a Dell laptop with a 64 bit operating system and a Gateway desktop with a 32 bit operating system. The desktop is hardwired to the Internet and the laptop connects via a wireless link through the same modem.

I have set up a Homegroup. I can see the network from either computer, in Homegroup, and also on the McAfee "Manage Network" page. The same Homegroup password pops up on each computer.

I can see files in the laptop from the desktop, but when I try to launch Homegroup from the laptop I am advised, "No other Homegroup computers are currently available."

Would anyone have any idea what the problem, might be?

Hello,
I want to rage on Windows 10 Homegroup because of all the hours I have spent. The homegroup is detected, but after I enter the password the homegroup is no longer detected. When I run the homegroup trouble shooting it says there is a network issue. When I run the network trouble shooting it says there is a gateway issue, but "fixed".

What I have tried:

both computers are connected to router via eithernet cable (still setup)
turning off the computers and booting one up to start a new homegroup; start up second and attempt to connect to homegroup
go into ethernet adapter properties to make sure IPv6 is ticked (it is)
went into the admin panel of my router to make sure IPv6 was enabled (it is)
went into services and made sure the following services were setup as "automatic": Peer Network Grouping, Peer Networking Identity Manager, HomeGroup Listener, and HomeGroup Provider (still setup this way)
used regedit and went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters to add "DisabledComponents REG_DWORD Value=0" (still setup this way)
Tried disabling antivirus (could it still be a firewall issue?)

I have been going bonkers

I have seen in the forums at least twice that IPV6 is required for Homegroups.

As part of my elimination of anything I didn't need when Homegroups didn't work for me, I disabled IPV6 on both systems. I subsequently discovered that when I removed Norton 360, everything worked. I never went back and turned IPV6 back on.

I haven't done a lot with the home network yet, but I haven't had anything fail... I checked, and it is still saying that IPV6 is disabled in the network properties for both systems.

How is my Homegroup working if IPV6 is required?

A:How does my Homegroup work without IPV6?

Please correct me if i am wrong. To my knowledge IPV6 is not required for anything within the US as of yet, so i wouldnt think there would be an issue there.

I spent some time going through previous threads on home group problems but didn't see anything that seems to address my issue.

I once used home group some years ago between my wife's computer and my laptop and had zero problems. I have long since removed that link.

Now I have built a workstation and I can't get it to set up a home group with my laptop

I created a home group on the workstation
I set the Norton Security firewall to Full Trust
I copied/pasted the home group pass word and transferred it in a text file to the laptop (via thumb drive) just so there would be no chance of not getting it right.
I then went to the laptop and put the Norton firewall on Full Trust
I then told the laptop to join the home group, which it sees, using the same password as on the workstation, but it says it can't do that.
It suggested running the network diagnostics, but that showed no problem
It suggested running the network diagnostics on the workstation but that showed no problems either.

Both computers see the other on the network and both computers agree that there is a home group and both computers agree that the laptop can't join the home group.

I've considered kicking the case of the workstation or spitting on the keyboard of the laptop but that just seems spiteful and probably not helpful

What to do ... what to do ...

Thanks for any help.

A:can't get Windows 7 HomeGroup to work

A long shot but worth to check: Homegroup requires all machines to have exactly the same time, quite often issues like yours can be solved simply by synchronizing the clock on all machines using the same time server.

See this tutorial on our sister site the Vista Forums for instructions, it applies to Windows 7, too: Internet Time Synchronization

Greetings.
I'm a total newbie on homenet in Windows 7 and windows 8, so please bear with me on this.

Earlier I had a Windows 7 "main-PC", and a small (very small) PC running 24/7 with WinXP. With that my network drives worked fine from Windows 7. I could read the drive on the XP, but not the other way. That was OK.

I then got a Windows 8 pro x64 upgrade licens, so I upgraded my Windows XP to Windows 8 Pro, thinking that home-network now just run without problems. What a mistake

At first I tried to create a homegroup on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Some services did not run, so I checked your guide to create a home group Homegroup - Create. That was not possible as I first had to change the language in my Windows from danish to english, and after that try to find the services the guide need.

Function Discovery Provider Host and Function Discovery Resource Publication is not on my servicelist, so I don't know what to do. In settings of homegroup, I can mark the things I want to share (pics, music aso), and then save the setting. But next time I look at this page, I share nothing again. It does not start sharing anything. At the Windows 8 PC I have joined the homegroup and typed the password got from Win7-PC. It claim to be connected to the home group, but no other computer is to be seen. The same in the Win7-PC. It also claim to be connected to the same homegroup, but no other computer is to be seen.

Hi there.

I have 2 computers and the networking and homegroup between them was fine (could share files, print remotely, etc).

Then I decided to change the name on one of them and everything has got very screwed up and I desperately need help! (I believe the homegroup problem emanates from the network problem)

If we say the original PC that created the homegroup was called OLDNAME and I wanted to make it NEWNAME. Then I went to the other PC and found that now nothing worked. So, rather than play with everything, I went back to the original and renamed it OLDNAME again... but alas, this didn't fix things. (Yes, I did do reboots after the renames).

The strange thing now is that when I try to connect to the homegroup from the second PC it says there is a homegroup managed by "name" on NEWNAME (even though the name is OLDNAME again) and whatever I do, this doesn't change. If I try to join it, after about a minute it comes back and says it can't connect.

To access files from PC2 to OLDNAME, I have had to change all the permissions individually to be able to see them. If I try to print I'm told that the active directory domain server can't be accessed.

All this is down to a simple change of computer name that screwed something and doesn't want to go back to the way it was.

A beer or two for anyone who can help me fix this!

Thanks

Brian Cleveland

A:Changed Computer Name and now Network and HomeGroup doesn't work

To fix the Homegroup permission problems you might try leaving the Homegroup from both machines and then create a new one. Changing the computer name will break the Homegroup sharing permissions so this may be the only actual problem you have so it might be worth while to try doing this first.
Homegroup - Leave

Homegroup - Create

Changing the computer or User name can cause problems with file associations which aren't very easy to fix. Besides changing the User name you would also need to change the account's user profile folder name in C:\Users, the link below shows you how. This may not apply in your case.

User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name

If you can't leave the Homegroup there is a way to fix it.

The fix for this problem seems to be Deleting the file idstore.sst under C:\windows\serviceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\PeerNetworking

Once everything at peer Networking Grouping is running you may also need to do this...

Start the Task Manager
Click on the service Tab
Find the "HomeGroupProvider"
and then stop the service.


You may need to go back into services and enable Peernetworking again after the fix. Don't forget to restart all machines making the adjustments.


If you don't want to go through all that I would suggest you use the system restore feature to go back to a point in time to before the changes were made. System Restore

The title pretty much says it all. I'm honestly at the end of my rope. Device manager replies all is well, yet sound stopped working overnight.

It isn't muted,I'm not that oblivious.

I own Advanced System Care Pro ( and consequently, Driver Booster ) so I have already all of my drivers up to date, as well as any other problems I might have had.

Used a bunch of other scanners to figure out the problem to no avail. Plugging some headphones in also doesn't cut it, so it made me think that perhaps the hardware was actually fine and some software conflict was the cause of the problem. I have no freaking clue anymore, should I just get mad and yell at my computer for an hour or so to relieve stress now??

Here are the errors I had:

1. Net stop: System Error 5 has occurred. Access is Denied

2. Tasklist or Taskkill: The RPC server is unavailable

Both of my problems were caused by the Comodo firewall on a new PC running XP SP3.
The startup command file calls various other command files and I got the above errors when they executed the Net, Taskkill and Tasklist commands.

When I entered the commands (net stop, taskkill, tasklist) at a command prompt, they worked.

The problem was because the Comodo firewall had a "Defence +" setting for a "Sandbox" that was enabled.
When I disabled the sandbox, everything worked as I expected, i.e. as on my old PC that I was replacing.

Did you buy the Laptop from new ? ...
Did you mean Windows 7 x86 ?...
If your System Specs are correct you have 4 GB of ram ? ...

im using windows pro sp2. last week i had downloaded something and then i started to get advertisements even when a browser wasnt open. it was about 3 different ones but went off every 30 secs to 5 mins. i went through some windows files in safe mode deleted some things here n there and ending processes.
i was successful in stopping the advertisements. although not long afterwards the internet would stop after 5 mins and i would have to keep restarting. once i tried to system restore it wont go back past the day i started having this internet problem. im not sure if its related to the previous problem or if i deleted a file i should not have?

here is my hijack this log...

I have a network drive, which I set up to save a copy of a folder for offline use using the instructions here:
Working with network files when you are offline - Windows Help

I am not able to find any option for setting the drive to work online or work offline. I did manage to set it up to work offline yesterday, but forgot how. Now, I cannot find any work online or work offline button. Is it in a different place in 10?

A:work offline / work online button with network location

Reading the net, it appears that this is a pretty buggy implementation of working with network files offline. I was able to effectively use the offline files feature on another win10 machine. When I unplugged the ethernet cable, I could work with the offline files, and then when I plugged it back in, the computer went online and I synced the files. Back on the original machine, I turned off the 'enable offline files' option, rebooted, turned on the 'enable offline files' button, and rebooted. After this, the machine was still working offline. It said that the user had chosen to work offline (which was true at an earlier point). But there is no option anywhere to work online.

I followed the instructions to reinitialize the offline files cache as described here: How To Reinitialize The Offline Cache in Windows 7 . I found it elsewhere, and the general instructions are repeated on the internet in various places. This enabled the laptop to use the cached files online again. However, I still cannot manually get into and out of the 'work offline' mode. If anybody has any ideas, I would be grateful. If there is a registry value that would put things into and out of the 'work offline' mode, I could at least write a batch file to do this.

I cannot get Windows Media Encoder 9 to work at all at home, but I have no problems with it at work, so I know I'm not trying to do something with it that it can't handle.

At home, every time I try to convert either an AVI or a VOB to WMV, either using the wizard or the custom settings, it lets me get through it all and then, when it starts trying to encode, it throws up the message:
"Windows Media Encoder has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. ..."

It never gives me any more information than this, just crashes and closes. I've tried repairing it through the control panel, as well as completely uninstalling it and reinstalling it, but it hasn't helped.

At home I'm running Windows XP Media Center. At work, where I've never had it crash, I'm running Windows XP Professional. Is there something in Media Center that causes it to crash? Is there any patch I can download or thing I can do to get it to work on my home computer?

Thanks for your help.
 

A:Windows Media Encoder doesn't work at home, does at work

I'm currently having the same problem . I open the .vob file set the output folder , settings etc etc . just as it was about to start converting , WME just stops and crashes . I use windows xp home edition so if your company's xp professional can make it work im thinking it is something in the professional edition which allows it to work not something in our edition that doesnt allow it to work. Are there any alternatives for encoding a video? i dont have much cash right now so i was hoping i might find some freeware alternatives . thanks

It's supposed to work with keeping finger on item some time, then release after that (it will open menu or just right-click). That doesn't work. It spoils all of the touch screen mode experience. (Surfing Youtube, for example) How do I get it to work? Please note that some areas it works, some it doesn't (e.g., on this website and on Youtube and on Facebook, it doesn't). Please answer. EDIT: It is the Chrome browser. Any idea how I can fix that?

I'm having difficulty figuring out this persistent malware. I think it's likely that there are multiple issues.

I'm running Windows Vista.

The malware started off with "google redirect" symptoms, and disabling my Symantec software

Shortly following, I could no longer access the web. However, the malware itself would create an internet explorer popup every 5-10 minutes (not my default browser) that would go to "search sites" (none that I recognized....) and search for lewd topics. Running the taskmanager would show multiple instances of iexplore.exe running on my machine (one for each popup). The popups would have to be eliminated one by one using the task manager.

Trying to run a system restore, I discovered all restore points had been deleted.

I installed AVG antivirus and got it to run once which seemed to help the problem. However, upon restart, all issues were back and I could no longer run avg. Windows defender constantly pops up that a new trojan is attacking my machine.

At this point, I unplugged my internet connection and started using another machine. I had left my problematic computer alone for about a month.

Upon turning it on last night, each time I logged on, it gave me a warning that "Windows had encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute" and would restart. I tried running cmd (in that one minute) to intercept it, but the task manager would freeze if I tried to run it from there and explorer wo... Read more

I'm running a Dell E510 with XP Media Center Edition, and I teach College courses online using WebCT. I won't go into an anti-WebCT rant right now, however tempting that is.
Anyway, several major features of WebCT simply won't work on my computer, because they depend on Java.

Most (but not all) Java applets simply won't run on my computer. I click the button for, say, WebCT email, and nothing happens. At all.

I have uninstalled everything Java related and installed the latest Java. My anti-Pop-Up software is disabled. I have done everything short of sacrifice chickens to Satan. Nothing I've found elsewhere on this forum works.

My College tech guys have given up, though one of them whispered in my ear the other day that I'm not the only one with this problem. I could ask WebCT, but that would need a seance.

Anyone got any suggestions, as this is driving me totally nuts and making my job impossible?

I purchased a computer at a garage sale a couple of weeks a ago for a couple of bucks. the older couple said it was dead, but I liked the case and was planning on moving my internet computer into that case. it was a micron millenia max gs 800 and the only thing wrong was the video card was dead. I put in an old video card, cleaned up the windows os and the computer ticks like a new watch. according to the micron website, the motherboard is a tazer 2, tyran s1854 http://support.mpccorp.com/apps/specs.asp?ID=3176 the total pc133 memory is 768mb. my current internet computer (pIII 500) is limited to 384mb of memory so I'm thinking about buying 3 sticks of pc133 256 memory for this micron (it has 2 sticks of 64 mb for only a total of 128). the micron website and several other memory websites say that this computer will use pc133, cl-3, unbuffered, non-parity, 168 pin, 3.3 volt sdram dimm.http://www.crucial.com/store/MPartspecs.Asp?mtbpoid=3A9D9256A5CA7304&WSMD=Millennia+MAX+GS+800&WSPN=CT178220 since pc133 is so expensive new, I want to try and find some used memory, but comparing all the pc133 (on ebay for instance) and trying to figure out which will work is ridiculous. my question, will most pc133 cl-3 unbuffered 256 mb work in this computer? what are the important specs, what should I look for in the specs so that I get the right memory so it will boot? thx
 

A:I need some help trying to figure out which pc133 memory will work and wont work

Anything on this page would work actually. And the prices are not too bad.

Buying ram off ebay is not usually a good idea, if you do make sure you have a very liberal return policy wth it. and buy only from a reputable company. Buying from an individual is not a good idea for computer components at ebay.

I have done a search and realize there are several threads here that address this, but I haven't been able to solve this. This is the same laptop that I posted a thread about with the bad power button. Not sure if the two are related, since the two problems seemed to crop up around the same time. Anyway, I've tried HP's troubleshooting, but haven't gotten the speakers to work. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, checked the volume (duh), and attempted to do a system restore. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that system restore had been apparently been disabled for some time, and there were no restore points to choose from. I've googled this of course, and besides the things I've tried, it seems that either the headphone jack switch is stuck or the speakers are dead. Would both speakers give out at the same time? I've tried jiggling/rapidly pulling a headphone plug in and out to dislodge the switch, no dice. Anymore ideas I can try? I've been using external speakers plugged into the headphone jack, but this gets annoying after awhile.

Hello,
My real problem is that I have offline files enabled.
When I connect to the office with high bandwith VPN, I can sync all files, but when I connect through slower (HSPDA/UMTS) mobile connection, I just cannot make to sync files, thus I cannot see non-sync folders in my domain.
In many artcles like this:
http://www.tomstricks.com/how-to-prevent-use-of-offline-files-in-windows-7-or-in-windows-vista/
I can read that there has to be a Work Online button somewhere in the Explorer in Windows 7:
"Now, with Microsoft’s Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, there is a button right in the Explorer tool bar called “Work Offline ” that automatically forces the transition to offline mode.When you click
that button again, it changes from “Work Offline ” to “Work Online ” so that you can force the transition back."
Q1: Where is that? I just cannot see it anywhere.
Q2: Is there a good way to enable sync on slower mobile connection, too?
Q3: XP used to be set up to ask if I want to sync files if VPN was connected. How can I do the same with Win 7 (Ultimate)?
PS. our server is Win 2008 R2.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Hello,
My problem is as follows: when launching some .exe files, either by double-clicking in Explorer or by having another program launch them, they show up in the Processes tab in Task Manager, take up some memory, some threads and some handles, and then stay
at 0% CPU and nothing else happens. Launching the file again only adds a new process, equally "dead".
The weird thing is that some files work fine: Chrome, Steam client and at least one Steam game, regedit.exe, msconfig.exe, Adobe reader, VLC media player, one compiled AutoHotKey script...
The ones that conspicuously don't work are OpenOffice (all its .exes), many Steam games, installers for new programs (such as OOo),
other compiled AutoHotKey scripts, Pure Data.
None of these problems seem to appear in Safe Mode.
So lots of stuff still works, but I'd love to fix this and be able to work on text documents and spreadsheets again...
What I've tried so far:

updated Windows to all it asked forsfc /scannow returns no problem at all (just ran it again now)chkdsk /r /f, everything is finetried a system restore, which failed even in Safe Mode, with the message about antivirus software preventing it from doing its jobuninstalled AVG, which was only possible in Safe Mode, am now running the free trial of Malwarebytes, which says everything is fine after a scanfollowed the instructions to correct .exe file association in the registry found here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2688326
