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.)

1) Suppose there are two user-defined data-collector sets: SQL and SQL-MEMORY. If I use

logman start/stop SQL or logman start/stop SQL_MEMORY
- both commands succeed.
2) If I export, for example, SQL data collector set to the xml file, delete the SQL from Performance Monitor, import it back by 
logman import SQL -xml C:\Distr\SQLServer2019\COUNTERS\SQL.xml

and try to start using the same command  (logman start/stop SQL ) the following error arises:

The same error arises when starting SQL in GUI.
This error does NOT arise if the SQL data collector set (its xml file) is imported manually!

It means no data collector sets can be started after being imported by
logman import command ... why???

Microsoft's Windows Server team released a preview of the next Windows Server product, Windows Server 2019, yesterday to the public.

Windows Server 2019 Preview is available for any participant of the Windows Insider program but the post on Microsoft's Windows Server website is unfortunately a bit vague when it comes to actual downloads of the preview version of Windows Server.

The very first thing you need to do is register an organization account or a personal account; Registering in this case means that you join the Windows Insider Program with the account so that you may download and use Insider Builds.

Once you have done that head over to the Windows Insider Preview Server download page and select "Windows Server vNext LTSC PReview" under available downloads. You can download localized versions of the Server 2019 Preview ISO and have 24 hours to download the 4.2 Gigabyte ISO image from Microsoft.

Microsoft plans to release the final version of Windows Server 2019 in the second half of the calendar year 2018. The company plans to release System Center 2019 as well which will support Windows Server 2019.Click to expand...

I have an application running .NET Framework 4.7.2 which we have recently started migrating onto Windows Server 2019 servers. We have started receiving reports of issues in Internet Explorer 11 having issues with controls (which we can replicate). Some of
the errors we see in the console include.

'WebForm_FireDefaultButton' is undefined
'WebForm_SaveScrollPositionSubmit' is undefined
'WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions' is undefined

When an app pool recycle is performed on the application, the issue seems to go away for a period of time, but does return.

I recently came across the following article in which the symptoms appear to be very similar, but for a previous version of Windows Server.


Has anyone else experienced similar issues with software running on Windows Server 2019 accessed with IE11?

I'm having an issue customizing the Start Page registry key in Windows Server 2019 (this method works fine in 2016) I would load C:\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT and add \Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page REG_SZ "Company specific URL"
and when a new user logs in they'd get the "Company specific URL" but with Windows Server 2019 this isn't working.
I have also tried adding "First Home Page" and "Default_Page_URL" and it doesn't make a difference, it seems some sort of mini setup is configuring the registry keys and ignoring or overwriting what I entered into NTUSER.DAT from the
Default user profile.
I've also got IE Enhanced Security Configuration disabled for Admins and Users along with the following other registry keys set that all are working fine.
[HKEY_USERS\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Friendly http errors"="no"

[HKEY_USERS\DefaultUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]

[HKEY_USERS\DefaultUser\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

Wondering if anyone has found a workaround or missing key that also needs to be set, thanks.

Running the following cmdlet on a Setting that is in the "NOTSET" state works fine, after setting it to Enable/Disable using the following powershell cmdlet:

and I am unable to ever change the setting again using PowerShell commands. The same process works without issue on Windows 10, the issue only seems to exist on Server 2019. Changing the setting using the Windows Security GUI works as expected.

For other controls, such as DEP, CFG,  I still get the error, but the command applies the new setting properly anyway. So far SEHOP is the only setting that is unchangeable, but there may be others as we haven't tested extensively yet. It fails for both
System and App level settings.

I've already asked the
question regarding auto-starting the data collector sets and have posted MS's answer - now it seems the issue can be much broader: I failed to make my user defined data collector sets start according to their schedules, for example:

I've tested various user defined data collector sets on all my Windows Server 2019 computers - physical and virtual, domain and non-domain joined, the result is always the same - the data collector sets just don't start and the following event(s) get registered

Hi All,

I bought a 15 user licensed Back Office Small Business Server which was

un-installed as the company grew and SBS was no longer adequate for

their needs.

The software includes all documents and licenses and have a proper

invoice from the company, confirming that it has been completely

un-installed from their servers and that now i am the licensee.

I installed Back Office Small Business Server successfully using the

registration ID provided on the original CD case. However, it asked

for a 15 digit ID before it installs office 2000, which I can't find

anywhere in the pack or on the back of CD.
Called the company and they claim that they had gave me all the

documents and Cd's and either can't be bother to look for it or they

really think it was in the back.

However, this leaves me in a somewhat undesirable position, as I have

already paid for the complete bundle which included Novell, NT

Workstations, FaxWare, ARCServe, Backup Exec and a few others and am

not able to complete the installation of my server and am left with a

intranet without a domain controller.

Can anyone suggest where or how can I prove that I have genuine license

and obtain a new 15 digit id for office 2000 that is included in Back

Office Small Business Server.

If this does not come free, as I have already invested a lot in

hardware and software, I have no choice.

I did spend some time browsing Microsoft site hoping that I will find

Well, I've heard something today that struck me as odd. A lot of AMD processors that are sold in laptops and desktops are sold with with cores disabled. Has anyone heard of anything like this? I work at Best Buy and my manager told me that a lot of the AMD processors are sold with a core disabled by default.

I've been searching the web for an explanation as to why AMD would sell their processors like that but can't find anything. Does anyone know why dual core AMD processors would be set to work as single cores by default?

A:Dual Cores Sold Working as Single Cores!?

This kind of thing is not at all unusual in the computer industry. There could be a variety of reasons, here are a couple off the top of my head:
- one core is damaged or not up to spec
- there is a shortage of the single core machines and AMD has commitments to meet
- due to the economies of scale, it might be cheaper to have a single "production line" instead of two.

I'm looking at laptops, specifically the HP Probook and Pavillion lines and I find the difference between 2 and 4 cores confusing. Would 2 2.4GHz cores generally be better than 4 1.6GHz cores? I'm guessing most modern games and media software support 4 cores.

The laptops I'm looking at are: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/233122 and http://www.ebuyer.com/product/226839
The pavillion looks a bit more powerful to me - better graphics, bigger cache, expandable RAM, but it doesn't appear to have SDRAM, and while it has more cores, the cores aren't as quick (at least in clock speed). So which one is the better buy?

Hello guys. So thanks to some awesome TS members valuable input, I put together this PC knowing that I will be using the IGP for a while until I get dedicated GPU(s), and I am actually really satisfied with the performance.

Essentially, there isn't a game that's unplayable, with the APU even handling the newest titles with High graphical settings quite well. Now, I may not be getting incredible frame rates (usually 35-45 FPS), for a system without a dedicated GPU, that's pretty damn good if you ask me.

Now, my question is - I pushed the GPU cores on the CPU from default 844 MHz to 1022 MHz, and the system is working flawlessly, I get no crashes while gaming. If I push it to 1088 MHz, games will start crashing and the system becomes slightly unstable. Now, is this the max I can push the GPU frequency? If I underclocked the CPU cores, is there a possibility I could crank up the GPU cores furhter? Also, I just adjusted the frequency, I did not do anything with the voltage, and I am not sure if I should, but could it be a voltage issue?

Any input is highly appreciated, but the ~200 MHz overclock makes a huge impact on gaming performance, it would be awesome if I could push it even further until I get a dedicated GPU.

A:AMD A10-6800K - Underclock CPU Cores to Overclock GPU Cores

Are you using the stock air cooler for cooling the APU or do you have an aftermarket cooler? If you are running the stock cooler, I would suggest NOT trying to push for the max stable overclock. What are your temps with your current overclock settings and running a demanding game?
I don't believe you can push the GPU higher by underclocking the CPU. Yes it will technically reduce some heat, but you will achieve best overall overclock by following directions below.
I suggest you overclock the integrated GPU before you overclock the CPU, since the GPU is the limiting factor here. If you go too high with the CPU clock, it can get really difficult to raise the GPU core clock. Start off with stock settings for the CPU and and keep bumping your GPU settings up until they are unstable. Once found unstable, take the settings down 1 notch and start overclocking the CPU settings. Repeat process as you did with the GPU. If you want to adjust the voltage after determining your max overclock with stock voltage, I would suggest doing so in small increments. Bump the voltage up a little at a time and repeat the same processes above with overclocking. Do NOT bump up the voltage above 1.5 volts (1.55v is the official max voltage supported by the APU before it gets damaged).

Hey all,

I'm trying to reinstall windows on a desktop computer. I purchased it (used) from a company who was upgrading their desktops and didn't need the old ones. They did a fresh install of windows, and everything was clean (no bloatware or anything) when I received it.

I've since been infected with malware I can't get rid of, so I'm trying to reinstall windows. But the problem is that I don't have a windows activation code. I've tried using tools like magicjellybean to extract it from the registry, but these programs only return a key of BBBB-BBBB-BBBB-BBBB. Other forums suggest this is because windows was licensed with a volume key.

I've poked around online, but haven't found anything useful for my situation. Any suggestions on how to reinstall and activate windows 7 given my situation?


A:How do I reinstall windows 7 on a volume-licensed machine?

Just install and run MBAM to get rid of the malware.
