Preferred Solution: how to restart a remote machine automatically when it got hanged

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.)

A: how to restart a remote machine automatically when it got hanged

Can't do it remotely since when it's hung, it will not receive or respond to any command you can send it.

About a week ago I went on a trip out of town and left a box running a game server through Hamachi at home. I have done this countless times and never had a problem. TeamViewer is loaded on the box and has always connected and ran just fine remotely. However, on this specific trip, TeamViewer simply gives up on trying to connect. The iPhone version brings up an error stating 'Protocol negotiation failed.' The game server application no longer responds either. Also, both the remote and the local machine I am on right now are connected through Hamachi on a VPN. The interesting thing is the remote computer responds to ping, allows me to bring up shared folders in Explorer, and is listed as running in the Hamachi client. What it does not allow me to do is control it remotely in any way. This system needs a restart badly and I have run out of ideas on how to remotely access it. Seeing that I am a couple of hundred miles away, I cannot drive over and restart it in person so easy. Here are some further details:

Remote System:
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
TeamViewer: Logged in and setup for unattended access - Shows up on my list with a yellow dot.
Hamachi: Connected with direct tunnel
Firewall: Comodo Firewall (older version) - Every program I've mentioned has been allowed through with no issue.

Local System:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Firewall: Windows Firewall

A:Need to restart remote machine, TeamViewer down, only on a VPN now

Well I drove back home earlier than expected and fixed the remote computer in person. Turns out the system had run out of memory after being on so long and TeamViewer simply had no resources to initiate, or everything was just timing out from the system taking so long with any request. I'll be picking up more RAM after the 4th. I suppose no one had any answers on how else I could restart the system remotely, but I'll be marking this thread as solved.

Check that the case fans are working as the CPU fan & PSU fan are not the only ones to consider.

If there are no case fans you may need to fit at least one.
There should be a position for one or more on the inside of the enclosure, usually situated behind a panel of perforations where air can either be drawn in or blown out.

Hello All,

I have a situation where I need to map a network drive on a remote server so that a scheduled installation can tale place from the mapped drive. For scheduling the installation I used the Schtasks.exe which has an option to create the scheduled task on a remote machine too using :

Schtasks.exe /create /S <remote computer name>

What I am interested in knowing is if there is any EXE file that can help me map a network drive on a remote computer in the same manner as schtasks.exe as there is no option for doing it in net.exe that is used for mapping a network drive. To avoid confusion let me put up :

machine that I want to map the network drive upon : ABC
Server on which i need to map the network drive upon : XYZ
Network path to be mapped : \\PQR

A:Using Net Use on a remote machine

Hi rahul1911,

The procedure should be possible. Here's a tutorial that may help as it contains additional commands and addresses share issues: How-To Map a Network Drive using Windows 7, Vista or Windows Server 2008.

I hope this helps. If not, check to make sure the server is sharing properly and that permissions are set to allow this to occur (you aren't prohibited from Group Policy or Active Directory) and/or that you are using an appropriate username and/or password if required.

Good luck!

A:Computer Automatically Restart

"Event ID: 1003"The symptoms you describe could be malware related or they could be due to hardware or overheating problems caused by a failed processor fan, bad memory (RAM), failing power supply, underpowered power supply, CPU overheating, motherboard, video card, faulty drivers, BIOS and firmware problems, dirty hardware, etc. If the computer is overheating, it usually begins to restart on a more regular basis. If your not finding any malware then its sounds like one of the latter problems.Some video cards run so hot that they have their own cooling system. If the fan fails, the video processor will not be far behind and your system may start crashing. If that is the case see "Illustrated How to Replace an AGP Video Card" and "10 things to know before buying a video card".In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error or crash occurs. You should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. Read "How To Use the Event Viewer Applet". You can then gather more information doing a search of the Event ID number at: "EventID.Net""MonitorWare EventID Database""Windows Security Log Events"."Events and Errors Message Center".Note: Windows 2000 users should see "Windows Restarts Continuously with Blue Screen" and "Gathering Blue Screen Information After Memory Dump in Windows 2000".An easy way to use Event Viewer is to create a log as follows:Click Start > Run and type: eventvwrpress Ok or Enter.In the right pane, right-clic...

A:Computer Restart Automatically..

If its running fine for 30mins - 1 hour then it might be a heat related problem. Have you opened up the case and cleaned out any dust that has built up? Especially around the heatsinks and fans.

You can use canned air to do this which you can get from most hardware / pc shops.

To check if it is heat, before you buy, try running it with the side of the case and see if the problem still occurs.

I have one very powerful PC that I would like to use as a VM server, and then I have a netbook and a HP pavilion dv2000 laptop that I would like access the VMs. My ideal setup would be to have my main machine running Windows 7 and have two virtual machines running Windows 7 that would be accessed and used by the netbook and notebook across the network, this would allow the two mobile PCs to make use of the main PC's sizable resources while still being three different machines that can be used by three different people. The reason I want to do this is that I have a lot of people who want to use the computer, but only one that runs Windows, has Office, and is very powerful. Any help on this topic would be appreciated.

A:Remote Virtual Machine

Problem: The VMs would not have office unless you could install it in each VM and that means a separate product key.

Also, each instance of Win 7 would need it's own product key since you can't run the same one in a virtual machine.

Other than that it sounds doable running Win 7 guests under Oracle VirtualBox. Just set the networks up as Bridged so they get their IP address from the same router, then setup port forwarding to a VNC server running in each VM. TightVNC is a good choice.

I don't think you will be very happy with the performance though. Even with Gigabit network adapters it will be slow.

It would be fun to try though.

Lets say I set a service on a client machine. I want to protect that service from being disabled. If someone were to disable the service on a client machine, is there some way that I could tweak the registry or something to cause the service to restart and reset to automatic?

Thank you.

A:Is there a way to automatically restart disabled services?

If you have XP Pro, you should be able to go into Services (Run -> services.msc) and alter it. Double-click on the service to go to Properties, then click the Recovery tab. Choose what you want to do from there. You have the option to have it continue to restart itself, or even restart the computer.

I have tried to use AdWare remover and JFT in safe mode.  They seem to work correctly but do not restart automatically when I press the Restart button in the appliczations. Both worked fine on my Win 7 machine.  Any suggestions?Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:AdWare removal and JFT will not automatically restart Win 8.1

They may not be compatible with Windows 8.1 yet...I will have to check with the developers.

I am facing this peculiar problem since last 4/5 days. Whenever I log into windows, a new user "wobrsqqw" gets created which is of the type "Standard User". From the control panel, it can be easily deleted. But, if I restart again, as soon as I get into windows, the same user gets created again. Once, I renamed it and restarted and surprisingly no new user got created. As soon as I deleted it and restarted again, again it got created. What might be the possible reason behind this? Thanks in advance.

Sounds like some kind of malware to me. Try running a full scan with your anti-virus software.
Download, install and run Malware Bytes Anti Malware (free version) and do a full scan.

Let them fix whatever they find. See if that helps.

Also run msconfig and check the Startup tab to see if there is anything starting there that looks suspecious or unusual.

Windows key + R, type msconfig and press Enter.

Hi,

I have a bat file that needs to run all the time. Often the app initiated by the bat file, stops working. The developer is working on a solution at the moment, but in the meantime, I'm looking for a workaround.

Is there any way, I can stop and then initiate the bat file on a timer. NOTE that the app just issues spurious error messages, which is more difficult as I can't just use an application monitoring program.

i have a very urgent problem and i don't know how to solve it. i run the sfc/scannow command and the error was:
windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.Log
C:\windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.Log
i don't know what should i do next.
Thanks

A:window explorer restart automatically

If you have a laptop, try your rescue cd to repair the corrupt files, if you have a desktop, use your installer to do the same. As for the restart, just wait some more experienced people here; they will help you like they did to me.

The touchpad enhancements (e.g. side-scrolling, etc.) of my computer keep crashing. I've seen that many people have had this same issue, and there doesn't seem to be much to do other than restart it when it crashes. I've created a shortcut for it so I don't have to go digging all the time, but I wanted to know if there's some way to use a specific program crashing as a trigger for it to restart.
Task scheduler only lets me use "Application Error" as a trigger, but not a specific application.
Thanks.

A:Restart program automatically when it crashes

There are programs to do such things (like Restart On Crash), but have you tried updating to the latest version of the touchpad driver instead?

Hi All, I am regularly using RDP between my laptop and 2 desktop machines (all running 7 Ultimate) but would like to be able to reboot the remote machine. RDP hides the reboot options so does anyone know of a gadget or similar that would enable such action. I guess it must be possible as some software installations actually carry out this action when installed remotely. I have tried some gadgets but they do not work.
Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Hi,

I dont think there is away for this, but can you connect to another machine that can still be used, but under a different setting on Windows XP Pro, like you can with Windows Servers?

I am here at the office attempting to use remote desktop to connect into my Vista Ultimate SP1 laptop.

I get connected and logon, get the desktop and everything drawn on screen, the it totally freezes.

After a minute or so I get the dialog box showing that I have been disconnected and it will attempt to reconnect.

Attempting to logon at the console of that laptop now, I put in my password, it says Welcome, then a message comes up stating , "This network connection does not exist."

If I click on OK and attempt to logon again, it gives me the same message.

If I wait about 5 minutes, I am able to logon again.

In the event log I am seeing from source TermDD an event 56 stating, "The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client."

Is this because I am using SP2 on the XP machine instead of SP3 ?

I've seen similar issues but only on occasion when connecting from the same XP box to my home desktop running Ultimate SP1. Every attempt I may to get into this laptop results in the same thing.

Any thoughts on this? I'd appreciate any input!

Thanks!

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???

Hi All,
I was wondering whether it is possible to check if a particular username exists on a remote machine given the machine's IP address.

(something like : Net user dude100 //193.63.251.8)

TIA,
