Duplicate name exists error

Q: Duplicate name exists error


I have been refered to this section by one of the trojan removal team.

I currently have a "duplicate name exists error" on startup (just prior to logging in).

I have attached a pic of the error message in hope that someone can shed some light on it.

The system I am using runs xp professional.

Many Thanks in advance


Preferred Solution: Duplicate name exists error

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: Duplicate name exists error

The computer you are trying to boot has the same computer name as another computer on your network. Unplug the Ethernet cable to this computer and start the computer up and log in. Right click My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/Change and change the name of the computer to something different then the other one. Restart the computer with the Ethernet cable plugged in.

Everytime I start Windows i get an error message in the form of both an error message that pops up on the welcome screen of XP and goes away without having to click OK, and as an icon on the taskbar (yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside of it) that says a "Duplicate name exists on the network". I have a Linksys Wireless-B 802.11b router with a direct ethernet connection through a port to and Xbox and also a second computer with a Wireless-B usb adapter. This error started after I hooked up the Xbox to one of the router's ports. I do not even know if this question belongs in this forum section but I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

Have a "stand alone" laptop w/ XP Pro and I get this error message when I boot up; I probably set up my OS incorrectly and would like it to only boot up w/ Administrator chosen, no error message, and then I insert my password. I also believe that I installed with my name as Administrator also, which is probably why the error message, and I would like to remove this. Can I accomplish via regedit, etc.? Please assist.

Hello! I have a medium sized network with several different OS's residing on it. Everyday a few of the computer will error with "A duplicate name exists on the network:" A quick Google search shows the same answer EVERYWHERE on the internet. So I changed the names of a few of the computers too something I knew was unique. Still though the problem persists/ it afters the two XP bases computers the most, but my main workstations (windows 7 sp1) has had this error a few times, although it appears to have left for a while. I have a feenas server but Active directory is not turned on. My router is a e4200. I was using DHCP server on there (and would very much still like to) although I have turning it off, rebooted both the router and the computers but to no avail... Thanks!

Huh? What does this message upon startup mean? Do I need to fix something?


A:[SOLVED] "A duplicate name exists on the network"

Do you have a network with multiple computers (perhaps in a home with more than one computer, all connected to the same router for internet access)? The message means that at least two of them have been named the same. Go to control panel, double click system, go to computer name tab and look at the full computer name field. Make sure each computer has a different name in this field. If you find two with the same name, hit change on this screen on one of them and give it a different name. You have to reboot for the change to take effect.

4 XP Pro puters on home network:
(A) my puter: 1a, wives puter: 2a, both connected to router.
(B) sons puter: 1b, daughters puter: 2b, both connected to a hub which is connected to the router.

Within the past month, my daughter's puter will post, now and then, an error message, "Duplicate user already exists on network", after initial bootup and at the log on screen, before logging onto the puter. She would then click 'ok' and log onto her puter with no problem's.

Yesterday, my wive's puter displayed the same message on her puter.

All puter's have all sharing disabled, no mapped drives, XP firewall inabled as well as ZA Firewall basic installed and enabled. All have the same user group name: WORKGROUP.
We jus share the router for our internet connection (no internet connection sharing).

Help! I have an annoying problem in Win 98. The Windows Installer window pops up several times when I'm signing on to my ISP saying "Preparing to Install". Sometimes it will pop up when I'm going into another application too. It doesn't seem to hurt anything but it's driving me nuts. I found a similar problem on the forum, downloaded a new file from Microsoft, and now I can't install it. I get an error window stating "The specified service already exists." What can I do???

A:Error - The specified service already exists

Services, as such, do not exist in primitive OS's like Win98. Be sure that the programs you have downloaded and tried to install are meant for Win98 and not NT, 2000, or XP.

3 installations now refuse to install onto my computer and I can't make any sense of why they won't install nor can I find an explanation anywhere on the internet.

Three completely different programs have refused to install.

1. Adobe Reader

2. BBC iPlayer

3. Dawngate (moba game)

Each of these programs, towards the end of the install, stop on "Updating component registration" and a dialog box pops up with an error that only says "Object already exists"

Does anybody know what's going on here and how I can fix it? It'd be really nice to read my PDF's again.

Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Error in installing some new programs "Object already exists"

I would recommend that you clean up your registry with CCleaner. As sometimes when you un-install a program the keys are still left in the Registry.

I have uploaded several PDF files to my website, but one is being stubborn.. I have several XLS files that I printed to PDF through CutePDF Writer and the PDF writer in MS Word2007. I got this message on a couple of them, but I wasn't able to get one of the files to display.

Error I get: "an error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly..contact the person who created the file..."

I changed the file name and "reprinted" and uploaded again, but I can't get this one to work for some reason.

I'm using WebEasy web builder, but I don't think this is the problem since I was able to correct other PDF files.



A:Adobe PDF "an error exists on this page"

Are you able to identify which particular PDF documents were created with Word, and which were created with CutePDF?
Maybe those that have errors were all created with the same application? I suspect it will be CutePDF because I've always used Word to create my PDF documents and they've all opened without any errors in Adobe Reader.

Hi. Hoping the experts on here can help me out.

I receive the message "A duplicate name exists on the network" when I start up my desktop. I am using Windows XP Home edition on an e-Machines. It has SP2 and I have searched all the available tutorials for this fix and can't find it.

I have isolated it to the "workstation" services in the windows services through msconfig but can't figure out how to fix it other than leaving the system service turned off. I can't do that forever, and I am hoping someone knows how the heck I can fix this problem. It just showed up out of the blue. Microsoft is no help. They want $60 to tell me they can't help me, and I am not willing to pay that for very little assistance, if any.

Thank to anyone who knows the answer. I am forever grateful.

Hello My name is Andrew, and I have a weird one.
When I Right Click On certain files I receive 2 open with context menu options.
One works, and the other doesn't.
more specifically, when I right click on a document file I receive 2 of the menus, 
when I right click on an "unknown file type" I only receive the one - the one that doesn't work.
when I right click on Mp3's or other known media types, I still get only the one "Open With" that doesn't work.
The Open with that doesn't work Gives me a file association error which makes me think it's a shell issue so...
I have spent a couple hours on ShellExView and ShellMenuView removing all non-microsoft shell menu's and i even un-selected hide standard menu items to see if I could find this duplicate "Open With"
If I do a registry edit, I can remove all the context menu's but that one, which is weird, including the "Open (openas)" and "OpenDLG" Just to see if those were it, I ended up only removing the working "Open" Context Menu to which I have put back.
I frequently change file associations via the properties context menu. Sometimes I open Batch files to edit them with notepad and "Open With" is normally very useful for me. So changing default file associations is not really what I need help with.
Thank you to anyone who responds.

Hello everyone,

So here goes the story. I had a couple of school files I needed to put into a CD-R. I inserted the CD-R into the drive and attempted to burn these files onto the CD.

I didn't know that the CD-R already had files on it. The School files were finished burning but when I opened up the CD I could only see the previous files that were on there.

The previous files that were on the CD before the school files were just random video clips, all in the avi. format. Now half of the files on the CD are still fine, they play normally on Windows Media Player. The other half of the files didn't seem to work.

I believed it was a common CD recovery issue so I attempted to recover the lost files, little did I know the files weren't even real avi. files. Here is the part that confuses me. The files that are not playable that come out to say "File Format not supported" do take up space. Some take up 1.6 mb, some take up 700 kb. It confuses me because the files take up space and claim to files yet they do not play.

When I tried using programs to fix the files it said the files were not even true avi. files. They still take up space though. As I looked farther into this problem I came to realize that the hex of the corrupted files seem to be quite different then the actual files that do work.
The good ones had "RIFF LIST or something like that" but the bad ones just had aslasga5s4f6asf15a1f... you know what I mean.

I attempted to fix this... Read more

Running Windows XP, Service Pack 3.

Trouble started three weeks with Live Care crashing system. Finally got everything running last night after a two day battle to install IE7. However, in the process User Accounts were damaged.

After reinstalling Windows XP and all software except IE7, everything worked fine. Had three accounts: Admin, and two limited accounts. pw protected. After IE install and lots of talk with MS tech support, only Admin appears on log in screen. Tried to create the two accounts since all data existed in C:/documents and settings, but error message is that account already exists. Created two new accounts with new names, transferred data, all is ok.

However, I would like to return to the old account names, so I changed login procedures to require typing in Account Name, which worked for the "lost accounts" so the profiles and data must be OK.

Is there any way to restore these original account names??
