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.)

If I wanted to keep my current home computer as my main server & be able to access it remotely via laptop any where in the world if I'm away for whatever reason.

What kind of laptop would be best?

My business is websites, so I almost automatically jump to an apple since its pushed more for the graphics/artists

But I also like the dells & alienwares.

I'd also like them to talk wirelessly/via bluetooth while they are in the same room together to "sync" up.

I'm just not sure which way to go.

I wont be gaming, just heaving internet surfing & web design/work.

I run Win7 64 & Ubuntu 64 (though I havent used it as much since win7 64 came out)

A:Apple, Alienware/dell for laptop to acces remote server

Apple is also pushed strongly in the professional audio sector.

That doesn't necessarily mean it is better for a professional or studio to use, however.

Any laptop will do. Look into Dameware software. It's great.

Hello there,

Please help, I have discovered that my Bonjour is corrupted and connected to a fake Apple remote server.
My anti-virus looks like it scans but it is all an illusion. Browser redirecting. Over all the computer isn't giving me that big of problems but I want the remote servers and keyloggers off.

Thanks!! Here are the requested logs.

I have two windows 7 pro machines and 2 xp pro machines. Every once in a while I need to remote into the 2008 server at work. I can do that perfectly fine when I am using my XP machines. With my Windows 7 machines, I can remote into any workstation at work but it will not allow me to remote into the 2008 server. It asks me to enter my credentials (I try typing in the admin username and password but it doesn't work). It doesn't bring me to the usual full screen where I need to put the username and password to join the domain, a different box pops up asking me for credentials. From what I read, I can log onto 2008 server with Win 7. What am I doing wrong???

As someone who is working towards a bachelors degree in computer networking, I have a half decent understanding (or so I thought) of how the internet works. But today... today my mind was blown. I knowingly downloaded something for a game that was a bit sketchy, fully aware that there was a 90% chance a keylogger came packaged with it, didn't concern me that much. I tend to be a bit reckless with my machine because just about every virus I've ever come across I can take care of with relative ease (and heck virus removal offers a weird thrill). Throw in a Hiren's boot CD, run trusty old MBAM, TDSS killer etc. and smash malware with an iron fist. Not to mention I tend to re install my OS every two months because I make such a mess of my file system I figure its best I start anew, and continue to dump everything to desktop.
 
So here's the story of what happened today, I'm playing my game and having a blast when all of a sudden it closes. I figure "Hey, the game just crashed that's pretty lame". Upon attempt to run the game again and log in I was confronted with a "Password is incorrect" message, at this point I knew what was going on, got keylogged and someone was in the process of trying to cause havoc with the account. I giggled a bit, then proceeded to go to the website and push a password reset request through my email, since the email had a different password I wasn't too concerned. Upon logging into my email to confirm the password reset... Read more

I work from a remote location, and use a VPN to access files on the company server. I have no problem logging into the VPN, but when using Windows 7 64-bit, I am denied access to the specific folder containing the files I need, even though I can see and open other folders on the same server.

However, if I connect from an old laptop running Windows 2000, I get a login pop-up when I click on the desired folder and after entering my username (including the remote domain name) and password I can access the files. In the newer OS, I just get a stock "access denied" message, with no option to log in. Specifically, in W7 the message is "You do not have permission to access this folder", which is nonsense.

Our IT department is baffled. Does anyone know how to set up W7 so it will allow me to log into the protected folder in the same way I can do it in W2K? Once logged in to the VPN itself, I use the 'run' command with the remote IP address to bring up the folders in a normal Explorer window.
 

A:Solved: No login pop-up for remote access in W7 64-bit

If, instead of using the run command, you open Windows Explorer and click on Network in the Navigation Pane (or Start - Network if you have Network in the Start menu) does the server show up? If so, does double clicking on it show the shared folders? And, if so, does double clicking the folder there give you the chance to enter credentials?

I have found that although "Network" and a "normal Windows Explorer window" look alike, they don't always give the same results.

As I was getting ready for bed my PC's screen came on and I noticed the mouse was moving around all laggy/jittery.

I instantly knew someone had RDP'd into my PC. I sat at my computer desk and chrome was open (I always leave it open with 3 email tabs). The person was in my main gmail tab deleting emails. One from my bank and another was the lastpass security notice email.

I quickly disconnected my pc from wifi and removed my wifi usb adapter. I began changing my gmail passwords from my phone's browser (disconnected it from wifi as well). then I get a text from my bank that my account has been charged ~$2,500.

Panicking that I can't change passwords fast enough on my phone, I connected my PC back to wifi and started changing passwords for my bank, paypal etc from my PC.

I installed and ran bitdefender and disconnected from WiFi while it was scanning. It froze at 44% and I reconnected to WiFi to download another Anti-Virus. When it reconnected it started running really slow and TeamViewer (which I've never installed or used) popped up with a login in French. Also chrome notified me new extensions were installed (a bunch of those BS Spigot extensions) I disconnected from wifi immediately.

Made a bootable USB from Avast and scanned my computer. Installed a bunch of anti-malware programs (malwarebytes, adwcleaner, RogueKillerm, JRT). I found out the person had installed a keylogger and all my password changes were logged in .dc files in c:/users/.../appdata/ro... Read more

Hi Everyone,

I have a 64bit machine currently running Win 7 64bit. Unfortunately, a client I work for has a 32bit server which I cannot access from my 64bit installation.

A few questions here really:

1. If I install a 32bit version of windows 7 on a partitioned part of my HD and dual boot will this mean that my machine runs in 32bit mode allowing me to access the 32bit server?

2. If so, can I then run the 32bit installation through virtualbox (or similar) and get the same result?

3. Is there a more simpler mechanism to solve this issue that I have overlooked?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thurs. nite, something happened to my computer, where files in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM were corrupt or missing. This has happened before, so I threw in my Windows disk and "repaired" it.

I immediately ran the Norton Antivirus (which had updated that morning). HijackThis (nothing unusual), Adaware6 and Spybot.

I have not had a problem doing this before. However this time, I cannot get online. The two error messages I've received are:

Remote Access Server Error. A device attached to the system is not functioning.

OR

Remote Access Server Error. The request is not supported.

I uninstalled Compuserve, then reinstalled, but still get the same error messages.

Also, about 14 hrs. after the computer bombed, Nortons found a "virus":

Virus name: Suspicious Script
Feature: Script Blocking
Action Taken: Blocked
Suspicious action: File System Object: GetSpecialFolder
I called my internet server (Compuserve) who told me that I needed to uninstall, then reinstall DUN.

Please help. I'm at a friend's house, as I can't get online, so my responses might take time.....

I will attempt to be as clear and concise as possible. The situation is that a company is being purchased by another company. Company A is being asked for information by company. Company B wants all of the information required to remotely access company A's servers as soon as the transaction is completed. The problem is company A no longer has IT support or even anyone onsite who is capable of providing this information. Company B has specifically requested a domain password. I have been given this responsibility because I am the closest thing they have to support. I have established remote access between personal computers in the past. But never a company server. How can I direct those onsite through the process of accessing the required information from their servers and then possibly setting up a vpn or remote test to make sure it works? Is a domain password all that company B will require to remotely access servers and network of company A?

Hello,
I've just started with a small company who already have AD and a file server, exchange, etc. They currently use webdav or RDS to remotely access files on the server and everyone complains about having to imput their username and password to open a file and how slow it is. I'm trying to find the best solution to give them access to the files without using the cloud. The main office, where I am has AD. 2 Remote offices have no infrastructure, but using laptops provided by us with domain cached credentials. Then there are 2 people in another country who work from home. I thought VPN either client based for everyone or static between the offices with each office having a DC and syncing files a few times a day. I'm just not sure that is the right choice for such a small company. Circa 30 people. 12 in main office, 5 in the other two offices. Also good to mention, the two other offices do not have a reliable fast internet connection. Please, what solutions do I have without using the Cloud?

Sorry if this topic is in the wrong section. Not sure where it goes.

I would like to setup my server to allow remote access from home. It's on an office network which is separated from the WAN by a router. So long as I'm on this network, I can access the server from any computer connected to it. I enter the https URL of my server through IE and it brings me to the helm interface (the one that comes with Windows Server 2003). I can click on Maintenance and then on Remote Desktop, and it opens a new window with the server's desktop displayed.

If I'm somewhere other than the office network, I can't access it. IE gives me a "can't find webpage" message (or something along those lines). How do I setup my server to access it from outside the office network. I'd prefer to have a similar graphical interface as Remote Desktop.
 

A:Solved: getting remote access to my server

You should be able to access it from anywhere using the MS remote desktop client that ships with xp. The catch is that you have to set your router up to forward all remote desktop requests (port 3389) to your server's ip. From the outside, put IP that your ISP assigns to your router in the remote desktop client and it should open up a login screen. The other option would be to set up an IPSEC connect on your router (if it will let you). Then you connect to your router with IPSEC VPN and it's like your on your network... where ever you are.

I ultimately want to control the mac desktop via my win7 pc, mouse and keyboard.

A:Remote Access to Mac mini via VNC client/server

Why wouldn't you just install VNC on your new Mac machine, allowing it to be controlled from the PC?

The product itself is cross-platform.

There are downloads for each host and each client environment.

I'm not a Mac person and only use VNC for Windows hosts and clients. But the product's description certainly shows it as being intended to be cross-platform capable.

A:Remote access to file server via the internet

Make sure that NetBIOS is bound to your network card on the server/PC you are trying to connect to. Big security risk doing this though...anyone can access your files!! If you have a firewall open to the proper ports with letting static IP's in thru them then you should be fine.

I am having a very frustrating problem with unauthorized and silent/secret access of my computer. No matter what operating system I install, I am always setup as a client, and someone immediately gains access and control over my entire system. I become unable and authorized to make changes that will prevent or stop this access. I have tried making a windows 7 lite version myself, but either I do not eliminate the correct services or features that I need to, or I eliminate too much and the system does not work correctly or install at all.

Hello all,

I have a LAN with four Windows XP Pro clients connected to one Windows Server 2003 machine.

I want to access the files in the server when I go abroad. How can I do that ? I've already given all the clients and the server a static IP.

Another question, are there any security threats that I must be aware of when I connect to the server remotely? I don't want to lose all my data!

Please help. Thank you.

I have a Windows 2000 Server in my home office. Two people need to access this server remotely.
What can I do so these two people can gain access to files that reside on the 2000 Server?

I once had a static ip address that enabled the two users to gain access to the server.

Thank you for looking.
 

A:Setting up remote access in Windows 2000 Server

The simplest way is to configure an FTP server on the server. That doesn't require any special handling. If you don't have a static IP address, you can use DynDNS or a similar service to map your dynamic IP address to a static URL.

Hey everybody,

Im hoping someone here can help me out. I am running Outlook 2007 on my laptop and Exchange 2003 on a personal server located in my apt.

When I am in my apt. connected to my wireless, as expected, I have no issues sending/receiving email through exchange.

When I am on the road however, I am obviously unable to connect to my exchange server. I setup a VPN tunnel that works successfully and when I manually dial the VPN connection or manually put outlook into offline mode (so that it dials the VPN connection), I am able to successfully get my emails through exchange.

My question is, is there away to setup outlook such that I dont have to manually dial the VPN or put it in offline mode? I set the exchange server account settings to automatically detect my connection status, but it is detecting my network connection as being ok, even though the Exchange server is not located on that network and needs to be dialed in.

I know it sounds lazy and it is, but Id rather not have to manually do anything, especially if I decide to give some of my less computer literate friends email addresses in my domain. Id rather not use IMAP and SMTP due to security issues having to open the ports on the firewall.

Hello,

I have installed SQL Server Express 2008 on my desktop and am attempting to connect to it from my lap top. I have enabled remote connections for SQL Server and opened up a port on my desktop. When I attempt to connect to the server instance from my laptop via ipaddress\sqlserver with the Windows 7 firewall turned on and the port open, the attempt fails. However, if I turn off the firewall and attempt to connect via my laptop the connection is successfull.

I followed the steps to open up the port:To enable port 1433 on Windows 7
On the Start menu, click Control Panel.
Click System and Security.
Click Windows Firewall.
Click Advanced Settings.
In the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on Local Computer dialog, click Inbound Rules.
In the Actions panel, click New Rule?.
In the New Inbound Rule Wizard, click Port, and then click Next.
In the Specific local ports: box type 1433. Ensure that the (default) TCP radio button is selected and then click Next.
Ensure that the (default) Allow the Connection radio button is selected and then click Next.
Clear or select the Domain, Private, and Public checkboxes as appropriate, and then click Next.
In the Name box, type an appropriate name, such as SQL Server Port, and then click Finish.

Can anyone offer up any suggestion on why I can connect with the firewall turned off, but not when it is on?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

A:Remote Access not working on Windows Home Server 2011

Well, the first thing we need to know is, does the server have a static IP address or Dynamic? Normally a server will have a static IP address but sometimes not.

1. Check for a static ip address
2. If not static, change it to a static ip address

Report back what you find and we'll dig a little more.

Hi there,

On Linux, we can easily enable remote access to MySQL server, but on Windows, I got no success so far ( a client tried to connect to MySQL on the server)

Here's the steps to do that (on the server computer):

1. Open a DOS command prompt on the server.
2. Run the following command from the mysql\bin directory:
mysql -u root --password=
3. A mysql> prompt should be displayed.
4. To create a remote user account with root privileges, run the following commands:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'USERNAME'@'IP' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';

'USERNAME' is the username to be created.
'IP' is the public IP address of the remote connection.
'PASSWORD' is the password to be assigned for this username.
(IP can be replaced with % to allow this user to logon from any host or IP)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> exit;

So it is. But I couldn't connect to that MySQL from another computer, both are Windows XP.

If you have any experience, I'd like to receive your help.

Thanks in advance.

I previously routinely logged into my daughters computer (running Vista Business X64 behind the firewall at her university's network) via TS Web Access.She upgraded the system to Windows 7 Ultimate to solve a video card issue and now the Remote Desktop login fails.  I can get to the machine through the gateway but it gives the "The username or password in incorrect message" on every attempt.I can have someone log using Remote Desktop from the internal network just fine using the absolute same username/password.I have had her check all of the remote settings multiple times (I have seached this one extensively).  Can anyone suggest what the problem may be and a solution.  Or even a method to diagnose would be helpful.This is a critical issue for me since she is near clueless.

A:The username or password is incorrect when attempting login to remote computer running Windows 7 Ultimate via TS Web Access

I found my own answer to this issue after I got acces to the machine physically and was able to view the security logs for the failed login attempts.  For some reason windows seven required that I use the entire computer name \\computer name\account name\ to get to the machine whereas Vista did not require full name.  Problem solved as long as I use the full name convention for the computer as expectedf behind the ts gateway.  Also don't pass the ts gateway credentials on to the remote computer as this causes it to want to log on with those creditials at the machine.

Hello, yesterday my stepbrother came to the house and while i knew he was on the mobile phone to apple support, i paid it no attention as i was rushed getting ready to go work. On returning from work later that night i was told by my brother (not the stepbrother) that he (stepbrother) had been on the phone for four hours to "apple support, some guy in Portugal" during this time this support tech guy had attempted and succeeded to gain remote access to my downstairs PC, apparently he was attemting to fix my stepbrothers ipad which his young son had locked and shut him out.

This is somewhat hard to explain to you guys as i was not present to witness this so can only relay 2nd person information.

Obviously as i am the only somewhat tech savvy person in this household, alarm bells are ringing and especially after what my brother then said next.

I have two computers running Windows XP. Let's call them Acquiring and Processing.

Processing has SP3. Acquiring has SP2 and is behind a hardware firewall/router. (cannot upgrade to SP3 due to some software it has to run that will crap out if the computer is upgraded, hence the firewall.)

I configured the firewall/router to give Acquiring a specific address, and to open the port for remote desktop, and to forward anything coming in on that port to the Acquiring computer, which is the only device on that router in any case.

When I go to the Processing computer and try to Remote Desktop to the Acquiring computer, the login window comes up without a hitch. Once I type in the username and password and try to login, however, the desktop of the remote computer won't load. I get the little bar at the top of the screen with the computer name and the option to minimize or close, I can see and move the mouse, but the rest of the screen is completely black. Eventually I just end up closing the remote session (without logging off though, since I am not given that option)

Over on the Acquiring computer, the screen hasn't been locked as per usual. I can still see the desktop, but the computer is frozen. I have no mouse, and I can't even get the keyboard to toggle the lights for numlock and capslock. I then have to do a hard reboot of the Acquiring computer to get it un-frozen.

Hi,

I am new to windows 7 Back up feature. Is it similar to Time Machine for apple?

So for instance, I would like to Create a copy of the current data of my laptop on day 1.....then by 14 I have modified several of the files (deleted + added + modified) and backed it up once again. If my hard drive fails on Day 15 can I retrieve the Back up, from my external drive, to as it was on day 14?

Sorry, I am just trying to figure out what the back up is really doing.

thanks for your clarification.

Windows Backup is very similar to Apple time machine however it is not designed for a manual Recover so if you want to keep something synced then you may want to use Synctoy as this will only add New files, Modified or deleted files and folders to the specific location

Works with Network, USB and SATA locations

hey-

I'm trying to get apple remote desktop (v 2.2) to allow me access to my home machine via the internet. i've got an asante friendlynet router (or an airport extreme - i can use either to set the port - of course machine will be connected directly to 1st config'ed router)- and have cable internet service. as long as i can keep track of my router's assigned ip address, i should be able to do this, correct?

so, i've got my assigned ip, i've allowed remote desktop in my client's system prefs sharing panel, i've tried to assign port 3283 to the ip address of the desired client machine (in the Distributed Servers Setup - Service Ports). > Then with my remote desktop software: added by address, using the ISP given IP Address, Login Name, and password specified in the Remote Client settings- BUT, NO LUCK.

Wondering if someone can help me out with this.  I have my Windows 7 Enterprise 64 SP1 box on a domain.  Our corporate office setup a 2008 R2 SP1 print server and created a few queues on it.  When I try to go to start and then type in the
\\servername I get
\\servername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The remote procedure call failed.  When I try to access the same server
from an XP SP3 machine it opens up fine using my same credentials. I have also tried this from another user's machine who has 7 Enterprise x64, whose machine was built differently than mine and I can get to it fine from that system too.  Any ideas what
I am missing here? We run McAfee here and I've tried stopping all the services, and played around with a bunch of other things too, so far to no avail.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Remote Server Not Accessible - Remote Procedure Call Failed

I can't think of any off hand that would restrict just one resource - that's not to say there aren't though.  Here's what you can do to check the Services:
Note that you must be logged in as a Domain Admin or have Local Admin privileges on the machines.
Start up two instances of services.msc.
On one of them connect to one of the Windows 7 machines that is working properly.  The other leave connected locally.  
Now go down the list and make sure the services on your machine match the services on the working machine.  If they don't, change them so that they do.  Pay particular attention to the Server and Workstation services.  Also the Remote Procedure
Call and RPC Endpoint Mapper services.
