Preferred Solution: FIREWALL How to Defined Predefined set of Computers??

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 am working with a Windows 7 Embedded system that is in a workgroup (not on a domain). The firewall rules are specified in the Local Group Policy. Much of the system has been locked down according to DoD standards. The first time the system identifies a
local private network, all firewall rules are applied as expected. After a reboot, only firewalls specified in local settings (the MMC snapin) are applied as seen through the Advanced Firewall Monitoring in the MMC snapin. I can run "gpupdate /force"
to re-apply the rules. However the firewall reverts to local rules after the next reboot. 
The local group policy is configured to not allow local rules. The behavior with this set seems to be opposite of expectations (local is merged, GPO rules are not) but changing this does not change the outcome.
I've reviewed all of the Windows event logs that I know to be applicable, and find little to go on. Any help would be appreciated.

I am continually getting the error "Run Time error 1004: Application defined or object defined error," each time a user clicks one of the cells within this excel file. It comes up as apparently a visual basic error. I've search other sites and unfortunately do not know enough about macros or excel formulas to know what to do next, so I thought I would post about it here. One user apparently has no trouble opening it while every other user has the same issue. Here is the debug code:

Private Sub Worksheet_Deactivate()

End Sub

Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142
Target.EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
Target.EntireColumn.Interior.ColorIndex = 8
End Sub

The "Cells.Interior.ColorIndex = -4142" portion is highlighted in yellow, so I assume that's where the error is. From there, I'm not sure what to do to change it. Please let me know as soon as possible what direction I should take.


A:run time error 1004 application defined or object defined error

To be honest...I would assume that the file is corrupt and try to replace it. All seemingly meaningful links on this error involve VBA coding and things that can go wrong with it...way overhead my head and out of my interest arena .

If it truly is a coding error (as seems implied), I would take it to the originator of that file, since it throws an error.

Very strange that e pluribus unum...manages to use it without problems .

I am trying to remove OEM branding from IE 11 in Windows 10. For the most part I have managed to get rid of most of it but there is one last thing that is proving tricky. This is a pre filled url in the dropdown IE address bar, which points to the manufacturer's
support site unsurprisingly.

Obviously you can click the cross next to it and it will go, but will return upon any reset of IE.

I thought the answer may lie in the reg key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\
plus the corresponding HKLM keys also.

Having deleted the entire key, which contains every setting for IE, I sill see that upon any reset of IE (from advanced tab of internet options), the url returns.

So the question is really where is IE getting this information from at the point that it is reset. More to the point, where have the manufacturer hidden something somewhere that IE then pulls into it as it's default.

Many Thanks

I am looking for an app or browser extension that instant searches every text that appears on the screen and alerts me when a predefined text appears somewhere (In Webpages and WebForms).

I am using a WebAplication with Chrome built in Java in a intranetwork, where i work.

I tryed looking for a Chrome extension but no luck so far.

Any ideas? Thank you.

A:Predefined Auto Search. Everywhere.

Hello BlitzMX, I have given a good look for something similar to what you are looking for, but I am not sure if there is such a browser extension, probably not enough people have the need for it.

Why are you looking for something like this anyway? The only application I can think of, would be IRC, where you may wish to say something based on a reply that appears (making a bot).

If you are making a website, then you could use JavaScript/PHP (depending how you implement it) to show messages once certain text appears and/or is inputted.

I have two computers linked and networked via a switch. Both computers have Norton 360. I can view the workgroup computers when the Norton firewall is disabled. And I have the Windows firewall enabled. My question is: Is just the Windows firewall enough for the computers? One computer is connected to the internet - the other is not. If I turn on the Norton firewall, I can't view my workgroup computers.


A:Workgroup computers and Firewall

You should be able to setup Norton to permit the individual IPs of each computer on another, and very likely, permit incoming traffic from remote ports 137, 138 and 139 and 445 for TCP and UDP protocols from trusted computers on your network for SYSTEM. Likewise, permit the same local ports outbound to trusted computers on your network. Do the same for port 135 for SVCHOST.exe.

But I think Norton has a concept of a trusted network (or similar description) which would make it simpler than what I wrote above.

I don't use Norton, so can't help more. Do they say anything about setting up for Microsoft file and printer sharing in the Help file?

Windows firewall is not sufficient. And many firewalls don't play well when it is turned on.

Buy a router.
My exp. with software "firewalls" have shown that these programs are highly unstable and unpredictable. Why many users exp. absolutely no problem, i get calls everyday related to corrupt "firewall" installations.
I am using "" because in reality, these programs are not firewalls, they are nothing more than software programs designed to protect your computer from internet intrusion. The nature of these programs is to be "overly protective" I suggest abandoning these programs and investing $50-100 in a home router. A router is a true 'firewall'. Plus, its a lot harder to crack a piece of hardware than a piece of software.

I'm looking for a way to quickly reference a predefined selection of files.

For example, folder "Photos" contains:


In another folder, "Best of Photos", I want to reference a few of the photos in "Photos". I say 'reference' because I don't want to actually move or copy any files from "Photos" to "Best of Photos".

One way to do it would be to create several shortcuts, one for each selected photo, and place them in "Best of Photos". The downside is that it can become a mess when there are many selected photos.

A different way would be to use a saved Windows Search. I could use the query "1 OR 2 OR 4 OR 8" and than save the Windows Search to the "Best of Photos" folder. In theory it's an elegant solution but as soon as there are more than about 80 OR's this method no longer works.

The way I'm currently doing it is by adding some sort of suffix to the selected photos filename, e.g. 1_SEL.jpg and then searching for SEL to select the right photos. This is probably the best solution I've come up with, but it's not ideal since I prefer to keep the filenames untouched.

Would there be a better solution to this problems than the ones I've come up with?
Thanks in advance!

Whenever I capture and save a pre-defined screen area image using ScreenPrint32 I am not entirely happy with the image quality.

Notice the "white spots" or "speckling" that surround most of the text as seen here in this unedited version:
I use Dell Picture Studio's Image Expert to edit my pix and again I mention that the image above is unedited or resized it's 1:1....this condition exists when I first view the image after saving into Image Expert and prior to using UploadIt!

If I want to resize the image from, in this case, 792x143 Pixels down to a more practical 492x87 Pixels size for Forum Thread viewing, the image quality and text clarity/sharpness is even more deformed as shown in the following image.
Here I simply resized the image:

An odd one maybe.

I have created a template, the template is named as such. when a user goes to save it, they tend to just click save, so in the job folder it says 'template', this is no good - they are fools.

is it possible to define a save name? say 'job programme'? then id want them to enter a bit of id to it, but its better than 'template'.

it is odd i know, long way round for a short cut maybe, but the original template has to be called 'template' otherwise my co-workers will never find it - or assume theyv done it.

maybe choose the name from a cell? dont know if thats possible either (i know they could change it then, but the problem is that they dont)

any advice will be welcomed.

I have four computers in my network. One is connected via cable to the router. Two are wireless, and the fourth one connects through ICS on one of the wireless computers. All of the computers but the ICS(Win ME) one are running Windows XP Home.

The problem is with the wireless computer sharing it's internet connection. Whenever I enable Windows Firewall the other computers cannot access it. If I click on it in the workgroup (on one of the other computers) it says network path not found. If I disable windows firewall, everything works fine. It can access the other computers fine either way.

How do I configure Windows Firewall to allow access by the other computers? I figure it has something to do with the ICS because I didn't have this problem until I set that up. Does Windows Firewall just not work with ICS? I think I provided all the information, but let me know if something else will help. Thanks

My mother is 77 yrs young and has trouble, too often for my liking, with dragging and dropping files to the correct folders. She imports pics from her digital camera, which get sent to a newly created folder (date-time) insode her main picture folder. Then she edits the file-name and sometimes crops and tweaks the images. When she is done, she needs to move them from this temporary date-time folder to any number of specific folders.....Thanksgiving, Christmas, John, Mark and Terry...etc.

I'm looking for a more fail-safe way of the move process. My first thought was to create a "move to" link for the right-click. But from there she has to continuously search for the "Specific file." I thought there were programs out there that allowed one to have a group of 'specific folders" to move files to. In other words, Right-click on a file, select move to, have a list of folder that one could move the file to, select the folder, and its all done.

any ideas??

A:Finding an easy way to move a file to a predefined location

If there are not too many target folders, you could include them into the sendto right click menu. That would work with up to e.g. 10 - after that it gets a bit messy.

If that's something you want to try, post back and I give you the details. Here is an example of my right click menu that I have set up that way - but only for 1 folder => A1Temp.

I have in my house a small network consisting of two computers, a Desktop and a Laptop. The desktop is connected directly to a Cable modem. I also have a Wireless-G access point connected to the modem, and through this i can connect my laptop to the Internet.

I have both computers setup in a workgroup, sharing files between them.

Both computers are running Windows XP Home with service pack 2. As far as i can see the Firewall configurations are the same in both computers. I have enabled the UPnP framework and it worked fine for a while. However when i turned off both computers for the first time after setting up the network, and turned them back on, the Firewall on the desktop began blocking the laptop, so it couldnt recognize it as part of the workgroup, thus the network stopped working.

From the desktop i can access the laptop without any problems. However, from the laptop i cant access the desktop. I get a message saying:

"An error occurred while reconnecting to W: to (mapped drive from desktop name) Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored"
If I turn off the firewall the network connections work perfectly, however i can't seem to get it to work with the firewall and i really don't like the idea of having the firewall turned off.

I really don't know what to try next, so I would appreciate it very much if someone could help me out with this.

Thank you

First off, THANKS for your time - anyone who responds! And yes, I have searched and searched... and understand what I need to do mostly, but need some expert opinions.

We have a cable modem going to my wife's work Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall which goes to her work computer and VOIP phone. The Netgear is basically a router and uses 192.168.5.#.

The problem is, I want to open some ports for our home computer and use wireless in our house - but cannot access her work router (not wireless) or have my wife understand anything I ask her to ask her IT people to do.

So, I have a Linksys wireless router that I want to connect to the modem FIRST -- so that I can control the wireless on that and open ports as needed, etc. and then connect her work router to ours ( where hers can then go off to her equipment ).

The issue: I cannot change her router settings at all... nor the gateway, IP's, etc. -- I want our home computer to not have to use her router's settings anymore... as currently, everything is plugged into hers as there are eight slots. Both CPU's are running XP.

I know in networking two routers, you have to turn one DHCP to auto get IP's from the other, etc. and make one address static - like while the other is with the range of IP's the second router pulls from.... but I do not know how to do what I want on my router WHILE using the settings from her router.

Can I reverse the process/order like this? If I connect my wi... Read more

would like to reformat hard dive, but new motherboard will not detect cdrom and floppy drives. when i boot up it says that there is no array defined..... so how do i find the cdrom so i can reformat.........thanks

A:no array defined

If your mother board won't pick up or reconsize the floppy or hard drive or cd when it starts to boot watch and somewhere on the screen usually bottom left corner you will see something like to enter setup press delete.

Do this and go into set up and have the motherboard find them and then all you will have to do is accept the settings and save and exit.

The floppy you might have to tell it that it is there or another problem might be you have the cables on backwards or a pin might have gotten bent.

I know the last suggestions you might think stupid but we all do make a mistake every now and then so it won't hurt to check. Not trying to insult your intelligence.

Also you might want to check the mother board jumper settings.

You could have Expand to current folder turned on for the navigation pane to have it expand to Data.

Navigation Pane "Expand to Current Folder" - On or Off
In addition, you could use this below instead to also have it do so without Expand to current folder turned on, but it opens Data as a separate group in the navigation pane.

%windir%\explorer.exe /n,/e,/root,C:\data

I use Windows Live Mail Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3538.0513)

Wanted to forward an email and clicked on the To box. I got the following message:

"none of your contacts have an email address defined".

Then tried to send a regular email and got the same situation.

I obviously need to get all my email addresses back.

What happened and how do I correct the issue?


A:none of mycontacts have an email address defined

If you store your contacts in a Hotmail account, then use it to sign-in to WLM it will work.

ok so i have a Netgear DG834PN ADSL router

I have 2 machines connected to it, my server box (running XP) which is setup as follows:

Gateway (Netgear Router) -


My main rig which used to run XP was configured exactly the same but with an IP address of

Im on BE Unlimited which uses a static IP address connection that doesnt require a login on the router.

This setup has worked flawlessly for years with both machines running XP.

As soon as i switch my main rig over to Windows 7. the 7 machine refuses to connect through to the internet if i define my parameters as above. I run troubleshooter and it says that "this machine isnt running DHCP. Try fixing this as Administrator?"

When you say yes and it removes your defined settingsa and uses DHCP it works....

but it still sufferes the random disconnects and fails as its an nVidia connection (680i chipset)

anyone have any clue why i cant define specific ip address etc and can only use DHCP?

A:Windows 7 wont allow a defined IP address

Any software that covertly gathers user information through the user's Internet connection without his or her knowledge, usually for advertising purposes. Spyware applications are typically bundled as a hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in the background to someone else. ...
While not necessarily malware, adware is considered to go beyond the reasonable advertising that one might expect from freeware or shareware. Typically a separate program that is installed at the same time as a shareware or similar program, adware will usually continue to generate advertising even when the user is not running the originally desired program.
A software program capable of reproducing itself and usually capable of causing great harm to files or other programs on the same computer; "a true virus cannot spread to another computer without human assistance"
Trojan Horse
A Trojan horse is a program in which malicious or harmful code is contained inside apparently harmless programming or data in such a way that it can get control and do its chosen form of damage, such as ruining the file allocation table or hard disk. A Trojan horse may be widely redistributed as part of a computer virus.

A:Virus, Spyware, Malware, etc. defined

Thanks for the explanation
One question, what's your opinion, is trojan, or virus more dangerous, I mean, can make more damage? From your experience that is, or that you heard of.

Excell XP:
Where is the file where the user-defined chart types are stored?
And is it possible to make a back up of this file?

I just had all my customiezd chart types deleted for no reason. I wish I had a back up of them...

It can be also useful in case of total reinstalation, sharing with others...

Second problem: when I close and re-open Excell, the user-defined chart type, that was set as default is giving squeezed chart area on the top of the chart window, making it unreadable, after I put a title.
The same operation work if I don't close Excell. Once I close it, the chart type become unusable.

A:Where do I find User-defined ChartTypes?

Well, I just created a custom chart and checked my machine for files that changed at that time. Then I searched for those file names. You can view the results, I did not.

Excel10.xlb (this also stores toolbar settings, see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=280659 )
Excel10.pip (never heard of this one, but see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=193006 )
XLUSRGAL.xls (prior versions used to create xl5galry.xls for custom chart storage, but see http://www.woodyswatch.com/office/archtemplate.asp?v5-n11 )
XL8GALRY.xls (don't know why--I didn't TOUCH Excel 97 and XL8 is Excel 97)
