Hi Guys,

Can please help with this issue?We had two windows 7 machines have this issue:
Domain IDs in local groups show SID not the actual name.
Please see the screenshot.
The rest windows 7 machines all ok.
These two PCs connected to our domain and have network connection.They are using the same image as other PCs.

Thank you.

A:Domain IDs in local group show SID not the actual name

Welcome to TSG!

Is the SID the correct one for the Domain? Windows only displays the SID if it can't find it in the User Database, as it has no friendly name to Display in that case.
Could just be a corrupted entry for whatever reason.

Remove those two groups/accounts and re-add them.

The first (ending in -512) is the Domain Admins group
The last one (ending in -98061) is not a well known RID, but if other systems are showing the names, should be easy enough to re-add the correct group/account

First off I apologize if this isn't the proper place for this post. We have an active directory domain at the school corporation I work for. The elementary school's use a generic student account to login. All of the faculty members have their own accounts to login with. Every time we log in using a specific elementary school's generic account it creates two different user profiles. One user profile that is created is for the account we logged in to XP machine with. The other user profile that gets created is of the account that belongs to secretary at the same school of the generic login account we used to login with.

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.

However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com

Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Is there a way to accept the certificate so it does not prompt repeatedly?

We have a strange issue going on with a couple of freshly imaged Windows 7 workstations over here.

At first we were unable to remote in to them because of a message that the remote computer does not support NLA. Setting the option to Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure) works, but then RDP goes directly
to the remote machine and authentications happens there, which would be the case with a XP (or other non-NLA-capable) machine.
I tried troubleshooting the issue by opening the Certificates snap-in in mmc and deleting the Remote Desktop self-signed certificate but I seem to be unable to reissue/recreate it again...
I have read that i need to restart the Remote Desktop Configuration service in order for the certificate to recreate itself, but whenever I try to do this, Event Viewer logs the following error:

Hi all,

I will cut straigh to the point! I am wondering if it's possible to set up a VPN to connect to a PC on another network so i can access the other machines on that network. e.g If I have an office with a router and 1 pc connected to the internet and 4 more machines conected to the router but not going out to the internet. Is it possible to connect to that machine via VPN so then it would be as if you were on that network to then be able to access the PC's on the network?

If you need any additional information please don't hesitate to ask!



A:VPN to access a local machine

Josh, welcome to the windows 7 forums.

One option which I use is a free vpn called Hamachi. It is owned by the logmein people but it does have a free version. It is encrypted and allows you to access the other machine using either Remote Desktop Program or another of the free programs like VNC. There is also the free version of Logmein.

search on hamachi and you should be able to see what it does. They do have a pay version but there is a free version.

My main NT machine cannot see my local network. The problem is not card or cabling. Forgive the long message, but I want to skip past the fixes I've already tried.

I have networked four machines in a workgroup called, let's say "Tollbooth.", with IP addresses in the 10.###.###.### range, incrementing the last digit, as described in all refence books (the IP addresses have been checked, verified, and rechecked) and using the same subnet mask (checked, etc.).

The machines are --
1. GreatOne, the Micron, NT 4.0 SP6a, diaup modem. 3Com 509 Combo NIC with latest drivers and diagnostics, RAS, NetBEUI, TCP/IP, WINS client. The NIC adapter is bound to all three protocols but not to RAS services. I have two RA WAN Wrappers listed; the one bound to everything but NetBIOS, the other bound only to "RA WAN Wrapper" [?]
When I choose Network Neighborhood, GreatOne can see the workgroup, but not the machines, NOT EVEN ITSELF.

2. Slippage,Toshiba Portable, Win 98, RealSYS MCMCIA card, Win 98 dialup for builtin modem. It can see [4] Zipper, and [2] itself. Cannot see [1] or [3].

3. Shapeless, handbuilt, NT 4.0 recently reinstalled and then updated with SP6a. 64 megs of RAM, 120mHz, LinkSYS card. Networked successfully before crash and SP6a (when running SP4).

A:NT Machine can't see local network

Check to see if the "Computer Browser" service is running on the NT machine Great One (under Control Panel/Services). If it's not start it. If it was running then stop and restart the service. If that fails remove great One from the workgroup and re-add it.

As for Shapeless I would uninstall and reinstall the service pack to see if that fixes the problem.

I would also dump NetBEUI on allv the machines since you don't actually need it when running TCP/IP.

Hi i dont know if anyone is going to be able to help or whether due to the nature of the query if you guys would be willing to help. Anyway here it goes...

Ok i have recently started a new job IT Technician/Administrator within a local school of mine. The problem that i have is that all of the admin passwords where held by the old Technician/Admin and i cant find or no one that works in the school knows what the pass could possibly be. We have managed to get onto the old server as the co-ordinator had an account on it, so we have managed to change the admin pass on the server, but there is a new server to be installed and i can not change the domain name in the network ID properties because i do not have the admin password for the clients.

The logons on the server do not corispond with the logins on the clients, because with it being a primary school the old Tech thought we would just have a local account on the machines.

The reason we do not know the passwords and we can not ask the old Tech for the password as back in april he suddenly passed away. anyway i was wondering if it is possible to get around this? is there any software i can get that might be able to show me the admin pass or to delete it so i can this new server online that they are so eagerly awaiting for Or is the only Solution a fresh install of the OS?

Anyway i hope there is someone that may be able to help me with this matter.

Thank You

A:Local Machine Administrators Password?

The only legal way to do this is to re-install the OS. You do not need to be the local admin to join a computer or change the domain the computer is on. You just need to be an admin for the domain.
Is there a reason why the users log into the local machine? It kinda makes it pointless to have a domain.

I would like to restore the ablity of the system to boot these start up entries from the default location. Any ideas as to how this might have happened and how to reverse it? I already tried creating a new version of the key By exporting the entries and deleting the key and merging the .reg file after checking it for any surprises just in case it was in the key itself. I also replaced winlogon.exe to be safe. This is a good one and I am out of ideas.

Why running a VM in a VM? I believe it's a test.
You'll lose considerable performance that way and there's more chance for the machine to crash.

Running Hyper-V in a Windows host is the only way to get best results.

Try upgrading or running from Parallells build 9.0.24217 or otherwise run Hyper-V from bootcamp install.

Hi there,

Let me explain my situation. I have a PC on a crowded network that cannot handle much more bandwidth usage.

I am now going to have a tons of transferring to do offsite so I added a second internet line just to deal with the influx of file transfers.

I tried a dual WAN setup on my router and the performance was not improved (if it was nobody noticed it) so I said forget that idea, I only need to do these massive transfers from 1 PC so I will just add a second NIC to the machine so that the 1st NIC can maintain local network functionality and the 2nd NIC will be just for internet traffic (sending files up/down to offsite location)

Essentially I just need NIC1 for handling local network, connecting to exchange etc. and NIC2 to handle files transfes to offsite location through seconday internet line.

So now I have a desktop PC with two NICs. One of them built into the board, the other a pci add on nic. they are both 10/100

On nic1, there is a connection to my network 200.200.1.X which is the internal network for Exchange, local files transfers etc. This is the network i have always had connected and I have no problem connecting to my exchange server etc. (my server is providing dns/dhcp/wins/AD/MSE for the entire network)

so I installed a secondary NIC and a secondary network line to the NIC2 on the machine.

I set it up with an IP, a SN, a gateway and a DNS

I removed the gateway from the 1st NIC.

When I did this I am now on 2 networks

I understand you want to remove the ASP .NET account.  


This account is needed for some system functions, so I don't know that removing it would be the best option.  User account in Vista and up work a little differently than they did in XP.  To help control malware, the top level administrator account is disabled by default with a second level, with less privileges, gets the Administrator label for users to use.  Some programs, especially older programs, depend on this top level admin account that is disabled.


What is anti-virus are you trying to uninstall?  There may be a removal tool that is necessary to properly remove the program.


I would recommend trying to uninstall the app through the system admin account and then disabling the admin account once you are done.  This guide details how to enable and disable this account.  You could try launching the uninstaller with admin rights (right-click>run as administrator).

This has me completely baffled, I've never had a problem like this before and I've been at this game for a while. If anyone has any ideas no matter how irrelevant they may seem please tell me.

I have 2 PC's, both running Windows 7 Enterprise x86.

The main PC has an internal drive and an external USB drive, both of which have shares a plenty. Until yesterday they worked fine.

If I type \\main-pc (from the main-pc) I can see all the shares but when i try and access them I get the message 'check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network'. The network diagnostic wizard doesn't find a problem.

If I type \\192.168.72 , which is the main-pc ip, into the run line, it cannot access the workgroup browse list and comes back with the same message about checking the spelling.

The second PC can access the main PC shares without any problem at all, including via Ip address.

When I ping the netbios name I am returned a valid IP.

Here's what I have done so far:

Reinstalled the network card, tried another network card.
Reinstalled client for ms networks and file and printer sharing.

I can see the shares via netbios name but not IP, and I can't map it for some reason.

Bear in mind this is not a networked pc any more, I took it off.

Greetings all-

As all of you know by now SP2 makes your computer 'safer' from the outside world.

Well it also doesn't allow some of our bussiness apps to run correctly. We currently utilize Primavera's Expedition 9.1 (totally web based). We are running into problems with the use of ActiveX within Expedition. The program requires ActiveX to print and as we all know by now, SP2 basically disables AcitveX.

I was wondering if you all had any work arounds to getting ActiveX running within our browsers again that does not include shutting down the LMLZ. Perhaps excluding our Expedition site? One thing of note, the Expedition site is part of our local intranet.

Any suggestions or help you all can bring is most appreciative.

Have you tried allowing it in via the IE Information Bar?

s.writeline(document.data.name.value + "|" + document.data.email.value + "|" + document.data.location.value + "|" + document.data.comments.value);
var strErr = 'Error:';
strErr += '\nNumber:' + err.number;
strErr += '\nDescription:' + err.description;

<form action="test.hta" method="post" name="data">

I was running "License Crawler" & saw an entry in 'hkey-local-machine' that remained after uninstalling Kaspersky Lab's expired Internet Security Suite.

Is it safe to delete such entries ( register backup made first of course)?

A:hkey-local-machine entry removal

If you've uninstalled Kaspersky Internet Security Suite and have restarted the computer and don't have ANYTHING else installed that's Kaspersky-related, do the following:

1. Go to the C:\Program Files folder.

If the Kaspersky folder still exists, delete it.

2. Do a search for Kaspersky.

Select and delete all files that are associated with it.

3. Restart the computer.


Doing this is a lot safer than poking around in the registry and accidentally deleting crucial registry keys.

I am on a Windows XP Pro machine, service pack 2 or better.

Some while back, I tried to set up an internet gateway over the LAN through another machine. I'm pretty sure I used the Create New Connection wizard from the Network Connections (My Network Places) window.

This machine at that time did not have a functioning modem on it, and the other machine did. The other machine, however, was (still is, actually) connected to the LAN via a wi-fi card. Anyway, I could not get the internet connection to work, which is to say, I could go online on the other machine, but I could not share the internet connection with this machine. Later on I got a working modem for this machine, and now I've got high-speed internet, so the problem has long since been rendered moot.

The problem at hand, though, is that in the Network Connections window, where the old "Dial Up" and "LAN or High-Speed Internet" connection icons are shown, I have an icon that keeps popping in and out between these two.

For maybe two seconds at a time, I see a heading come up "Internet Gateway" and underneath it appears an icon saying "Internet Connection on VAIO". It disappears as soon as it appears, and then maybe 25 seconds later it pops back up for a second again. Well, sometimes it stays on the screen for 8 seconds.

I want to delete it, remove it entirely, but when I right-click on it, I find the Delete option is greyed out.

I know there is supposed to be some al... Read more

A:bogus Internet Gateway to a local machine

It appears that there is a Sony computer with a wireless card that your wireless card is detecting. Perhaps you could tell us more about the machines, like make/model, what version/patch level of windows, and what networking equipment you have.

We Deploy Window 7 X86 SP1 using SCCM & MDT. It's a unattended deployment (No Image).
As far as I know "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce" should be removed if the execution is a success. But we have 4 keys remaining in RunOnce:
ASYNCMAC, rundll32.exe streamci,StreamingDeviceSetup {eeab7790-c514-11d1-b42b-00805fc1270e},asyncmac,{ad498944-762f-11d0-8dcb-00c04fc3358c},C:\Windows\INF\netrasa.inf,Ndis-Mp-AsyncMac
ehssetup, "%WinDir%\system32\rundll32.exe" "%WinDir%\ehome\ehssetup.dll",LaunchProcessInputFiles
iessetup, C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iessetup.dll",LaunchProcessInputFiles
wmssetup, C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmssetup.dll",LaunchProcessInputFiles
Is this by design or should these keys be removed by the system?
Also when I make a custom RunOnce (Notepad, %windir%\notepad.exe) the key is executed each reboot/logon.

A:Local Machine RunOnce settings persist in the registry

Yes, its "by Design" ;-)
