Windows 7 32bit on Dell 9200 4 GB RAM 2 x 500GB HDD ... with all OS updates.

Been working fine ...booted up, used for an Hr .. left PC running, returned to it, power on but screen was 'black'

Had to power off to reboot - on start up (normal) desktop paints in, the spinning wheel runs for ages, then eventually all seems fine ... but can't do anything, only action is cursor .. nothing clickable. (incl Ctl+alt+del) HDD led on PC running permanently.

Reboot in safe mode ... chose system restore .. and it shows a Windows Critical update restore point .. at a time that matches failure. ??
OK tried restore ... still the same.

Tried Windows 7 repair disk, again selected restore ... Tried restore to next previous (2 days ago) all seems to go well, get login, desktop paints in ... then screen goes black ... all that is on it is cursor.

The only other points I can think of is that this morning (last successful boot up) it brought up a pop-up "Express files updated" with recommendation to run it ... as it gave no program, or manufacturer ... I chose not to run.
On one of the boot ups during problem .. an unfamiliar icon showed on desktop ... "Homegroup", a green sphere, surrounded by 3 orbiting blue spheres" although not been there on any subsequent boot up.

Any suggestions on next step ?

Hello all,

Please help a newbie here. Really was wasting last 2 days trying to set up network and couldn't figure out how.

First let me describe how actually the physical network is set up.

There are 6 computers all having Windows 7 installed on them. One of the computers is connected to the internet via a DSL modem and the connection is shared with the Local Area Connecion.

I did create a Homegroup and all computers did see each other (file sharing and others) but non had access to internet. To mention here is that I did SHARE my broadband connection and selected the Local Area Network to be shared with.

This was my first try. Did not come out.

Second time I set all computers to Work Network and one of the problems here is that 2 computers had network defined as "Network" others as "Unidentified Network" - though on the physical level I could share files and other things but not the internet. Again I did share the internet connection with the Local Area Network.

Please guys help me out.. if needed I can provide screenshot and more details here. I had such a network set up with XPs and when changed to 7, really I'm stuck here.

Thanks in advance.

I experiencing Event id 10016 for several different scenarios and having problems isolating the cause due to Running Windows 7 Home Premium. I use this Laptop only while traveling and am about to leave on a trip. I would like to determine the settings I should see for the following before I dig myself a deeper hole by troubleshooting with limited tools available.

At this point I am not sure these events showing up are actually causing a problem but they are making me nervous about having the laptop fail while away from home . If I can not resolve by setting defaults, unless it fails, I will do a re-install of W7 after I return from the trip. A complete explanation of the problem is below after the request for information.

Can anyone tell me what Groups should appear in Component Services for Computer/MyComputer/Properties/Com Security Tab for a new install. I need groups listed and their checked permissions for both panes (Access & Launch/Activation) and both buttons (Limits & Defaults) or point me to documentation that lists (rather than explains) the defaults.

Also require a list of the users that would normally be members of the "Distributed COM Users" localgroup. I had none.

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID {xxxxx} and APPID {xxxxx} to the user NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using RPC). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services
administrative tool.

After not using the laptop for several months I attempted to apply all the outstanding windows updates and install the Netbeans IDE. When I attempted to add a plugin for NetBeans the application would no longer start (appeared to run but the IDE never displayed and no error). Also had some permission problems (access) with window updates that would later resolve next time they where applied.

I removed NetBeans and several other apps no longer used then used a system restore point roll back to two months earlier and re-installed all windows updates. I then created a system image which ran overnight and appeared to be work correctly. Windows also applied an update after this which required a reboot and a message indicating a problem with the backup not being able to run was displayed. It was at this point I received my first 10016 which was the wpengine (Microsoft Block Level Backup ) application with my administrator being the reported user.

I attempted to troubleshoot permission problems and found that I could not attempt many of the suggestions found due on the web due to running the W7 Home Premium edition. I have experimented with Component Services permissions (also added my administrator account to the Distributed COM Users group) and added my admin user to Component Services Computer/MyComputer/Properitesy/Com Security Tab defaults. This appeared to resolve the wbengine problem or have not yet hit circumstance to cause it,

After this I saw 10016 events with NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) being the user in each case but with more than one application. Mostly “LocalService IPBusEnum”, and each of these was paired with a separate “Event ID 2” and message “Session "Homegroup Log" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000035”. I believe I also saw Advance Device Presence(?) as the application. I only changed permissions in Component Services in an attempt to resolve and did not attempt troubleshooting logically

Services.msc and homegroup joining

I have a desktop with Win 7 home premium x 64 and a laptop with the same.
I have Belkin router and Norton security suite. I called both about this but they say they are not the problem.
I have uninstalled Norton on both to no avail.
The Belkin router pinged 4 packets out and 4 back successfully. So as an unskilled person I do not know if that excludes Belkin as the problem.
The home group exists on the desktop and when I try to join with the laptop by putting the password given me by the desktop, the error says windows cannot set up a home group. But, when I uninstalled Norton the error message was just that there was an error. I want the laptop to join, not set up, as the desktop is already set up.
I run the troubleshooter to no avail.
I know routers can cause issues even if the firewall is off.
The advanced page under homegroups is identical in both machines and it is yes to everything.
A forum administrator took control of my pcs and could not figure it out and he is a Major Geek.
My skill level does not allow me to modify the registry.
I looked ar “services.msc” and perhaps one of the settings is off. Do you know any that could affect my machines so homegroup would not allow me to join?
I was thinking of trying a Linksys router as a last resort as I have a few days left on my return policy.
Please give me some direction to go in as I really need to share files.
Thank you

My desktop PC is running Windows 7 64 bits. I have already created a homegroup on it. But when I try to view password, system does not show anything there and if I try to change the password to a new one it fails to do! Further I can not also leave the homegroup as the system shows the message 'windows cannot leave the homegroup'. What is the problem?

So i play CA (Combat arms, a first person shooter) at around 30-50 frames per second.
sometimes with tweaks i can get to around 43-57 consistent frames per second.
On three different computer i have had One moment of insane and godly frames per second around 300-400frames per second

-First time was on my macbook(Dual core 2.6ish GHz /Nvidia, 256 dedicated RAM/ 4GB RAM/)
I installed bootcamp and after a year or so of consistent lagging around 60 frames per second i was lagging in combat arms more , so i reinstalled my Nvidia graphics driver
After i reinstalled i was able to play CA On full graphics Anti-asling x8 anisotropy x8
overall settings high, and still run at around 200+ frames per second
On CA, fallout 3 new vegas, and some others.
As soon as i restarted my laptop it was back to same old laggy 50-60 frames per second.

-On a Metal laptop I had (for like 3 months before i discovered that buzzing feeling was the comp shocking me for those months)I was playing and randomly one night it started running at insane frames per second, i dont remember too much but it was fallout 3 on low then, full graphics.

And most recent on my current AMD quad core:
I was playing laggy games around 20-30 frames per second with lots of freezes.
I reinstalled my graphics drivers and instantly my games were running full graphics and the insane 200-300 frames per second.
Now currently I am running at 30-50 frames per second with rarely any freezes.

MY current laptop: CA 25-55 frames per second
Gateway - Windows 7 home premium 64 BIT
AMD Quadcore 1.5Ghz A8-3500m
4GB RAM DDR3, I did have 6GB but i gave 2GB to my Brother, it only caused me to be at current lower -10 frames per second.
640GB HardDrive space
AMD 6620G, 512 dedicated ram.
1366 x 768 and my VGA Display 1360 x 768.

Macbook/bootcamp:CA 30-80 frames per second
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit
dual core 2.6ish GHz
256 dedicated RAM
250HD space
Gamebooster report has more info

Programs & settings I use
- I sometimes use Gamebooster which gives me +5-10fps
- I also have been trying recently the
windows media player booster program with no signs of fps gain.
- I have fully updated windows 7
- I just now reinstalled my graphics driver with no improvement.
- I reinstalled CA alot and do gain too around consistent 50-65 frames per second frames per second for like 3 days.
-I used overdrive for month and it hurt my comp
It did not boost me and it caused my games to jitter and screech, it also caused my laptop to have other erratic problems
(I even set it to run at just over 100% CPU and had same effects)
I run on the lowest graphics on CA and AMD AMD is set to no v-sync, no antiasling, no anisotropy no triple buffer, and such with 30-50 frames still.
- I have tried in lower resolution screens with only small 10 frames per second.
- I have defragged.

-On the macbook and this AMD quad core i had been playing for over 10 hours
one person told me it takes times for the comp to heat up and then it will run faster
(Problem is I play around 14 hours per day, and it does get faster but only up to around +10 frames and MUCH faster loading speeds)
If this is true, then how could i implement this and keep my comp in correct temperature.
(I have a fan and when i rarely have used it I think it slows my comp down)

-MY CPUs on this quad core never go above 25%
my GPU according to system monitor Gets maxed out during current CA gameplay
Maybe i can somehow get my comp to use my CPUs instead of my GPU?

-I heard the having 3D vision installed on the Nvidia computers sometimes lags people up so i made sure to disable featues like that when i reinstalled, but im not sure if i disabled anything, maybe you know of some feature i should disable.

I think it was prob some feature/setting not being installed with my drivers.
or some setting put in by windows the the AMD/Nvidia driver messed with.
(maybe reinstalling cleared a cache that lags me)

Why it cant be some things.
-I was not running game booster or any program like that.
-I was not running on low graphics i was running on max, after i saw that i was running so fast on low graphics, in attempt to sea how much it could handle.
I had no overdrive.
-I did no hardware changes at all within at least 1-2 months of the 3 incidents.
(probably longer like 1 year)
-I have reinstalled my windows 7 comp and instantly installed CA and then played it with only consistent 50-60 frames.
-Its not CA because i have tried reinstalling and then not installing CA and still ran slow on fallout 3, and even Runescape.
-I have played on no page file, and on 7GB page file
-I have tried turning off themes, running gamebooster, defragging. and it is pretty smooth but still a measly 43-60 frames per second.
-I was playing On 1280 X 800 res during incident.
I defragment.
Current game speeds
Skyrim 30-40frames per second
None of the weak fixes are what im after im after those moments of pure..........insanity...
Where i had 300-400 frames per second.
but maybe a weak fix will be all i need to tide it over.

I got 10 headshots in a row easily on CA where 10 headshots in a row is as rare as winning lottery.

I dont want to post this and watch it get ignored like most forums.

I know its possible because it happened to me three times, and on this AMD laptop.

I dont think this is a gaming topic because its about graphics, not a specific game.

It also effected the rest of my system at least a little, that i could load games and such faster.

This is unrelated to this problem but im thinking about buying a 8GB RAM stick for my laptop i just want to know how much would that help. My teacher said that upgrading the ram will speed up my computer ALOT. (RAM is Cheap and yet expensive, I need a cheap 8GB high quality stick, said $45 and at Freys instore it was like $25ish, but its like 100miles away now)

I have my CISCO IT essentials so i can easily handle windows tasks and i already have used MANY different tweaks of Regitry, and other system tweaks.

Hello All,

I have a very strange problem which I am assuming is some wrong with the Apple Bonjour service. It appears that it only work one way. By this I mean, the Win7 64-bit Ultimate system can be seen by other computers and devices but IT cannot see other computers and devices. Here's the rundown of the network:

Desktop/gateway system
Win7 64-bit Ultimate SP-1 plus all additional patches
Netgear wifi card connected to the rest of my network in infrastructure mode
ICS running & connected to the Internet
File & Print sharing running in a Workgroup not Homegroup
Windows Firewall running
iTunes & Bonjour 64-bit installed
Linksys ADSL modem connected via ethernet port

Laptop computer
Windows XP Pro SP-3+ 32-bit
Internal wifi adapter active and connected to my network
On board LAN disabled
File & Print sharing running
No firewall running
iTunes and Bonjour 32-bit installed
.NET 4.0 installed

Second Desktop computer
Windows XP Pro SP-3+ 32-bit
Netgear wifi card active and connected to my network
File & print sharing running
No firewall running
iTunes and Bonjour 32-bit installed
.NET 4.0 installed

Wifi router only to serve DHCP addresses and provide wireless SSID and WPA-PSK2 encryption. Firmware is DD-WRT mega latest stable build. No firewalling or other services are being provided by the router.

iPod Touch 2G
iPhone 4GS

All machines see one another on the network for file and print sharing, Remote Desktop and Internet access.

Scenario 1:

iTunes 10.6 64-bit is installed on on the gateway machine and as you know Bonjour is an integral part of Apple's zero configuration. So Bonjour is running. It set the correct rules in the Windows 7 firewall.
iTunes 10.6 32-bit is installed on the two other systems. Apple Homesharing is turned on for all systems. In iTunes, the two XP machines see their media libraries as well as the Win7's media libraries and can connect to them. The problem is that the Win7 system does not see either of the 2 machines media library.

Scenario 2:

Running an application called Airfoil which allows you to stream music to it's client systems wirelessly. Software requires .NET 4.0 to be installed. It too requires Bonjour to locate other devices. If the Airfoil Server is running on one of the other two systems and the Airfoil client is running on the Win7 system the server sees the client . If the Airfoil server is running on the Win7 machine it never sees the clients on the other two systems nor the client app running on the two iDevices.

These two scenarios lead me to believe that there is an issue with Bonjour as it is the underpinning of both applications.

What I have done...

First off, I had the same problem with Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit before installing 64-bit. It makes NO difference whether I am connected to the Internet or not and it makes NO difference whether the Windows Firewall is on or off.

This problem has really got me against the wall. After 30 years of being an IT Comms Specialist, I have exhausted all my methods of troubleshooting.

Has ANYBODY experienced something similar? Surely I cannot be the only person who has this issue. I have combed the Internet ad nauseum and have not been successful in finding anything even similar. I would appreciate any and all assistance.

Thanks and regards,

Jan Smoller

I have a client that has about 5 computers set up in their small office, 2 running XP one running Vista and the other two running Windows 7. All on a wired network

The main document server one runs windows 7. The docs are in the public folder on that PC.
All the PC's can see and access these folders perfectly.

The only one that cannot is the other one running Windows 7 (which is a laptop). I have tried normal networking, homegroup.

I think the problem lies in the fact that when the client bought the laptop, They didnt think and gave it the SAME NAME as the computer it needs to access.

I changed the computer name, but as you know this doesn't change the User/Folder structure or name.

Thus far I have been unable to solve it.
As they are the only ones on the Homegroup. I can click on the Icon and see the Shared Documents, Music, Pictures folders etc. But when I click to go in to them it does nothing.

Has anyone encountered this before?

And lastly, I CAN access the laptops public docs from the document server PC?

Thankyou for your time and help.


Hi, I just got a new laptop pre-installed w/ Windows 7. Everything works fine, but when I go into Windows Explorer I'm missing an icon for my hard drive. On the left side, there are five main categories: Favorites, Libraries, Homegroup, Computer, and Network. Some of the categories have subcategories underneath. Under the fourth category, Computer, my hard drive is listed as a subcategory. It is labeled HPLJP1000_1500(C). Just to the left of each category/subcategory, there is an icon that corresponds with each item. To the left of "Computer" there is an icon with a computer. But to the left of "HPLJP...", there is just the missing-icon icon. It's very small, but it appears that it resembles a white piece of paper with the top right corner folded over with a window in the middle with some icons inside of that window; just a generic placeholder icon I guess. I know this is vague, if you need more details let me know, but I would GREATLY appreciate it if anyone can help me out. It's driving me crazy!

Have you tried rebuilding the icon cache database, if not, take a look at this article. Rebuild The Icon Cache In Windows 7 or Vista

I've been Googling this problem for at least 2 hours and still haven't found a solution.

I've had this problem for a while now and I didn't really mind since I still have access to the internet. However, today I was trying to access my HomeGroup but it tells me that I'm not connected to the network.

I haven't installed anything. Just one day, I turned on the laptop and there the red x was. I haven't had any problems with Windows 7 aside from Firefox crashing all the time. I think it blue screened on me two or three times too.

I set File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks to ON in my LAN adapter properties. When I reboot it has turned itself off.

My PC runs Windows 7 64bit.
With File & Printer Sharing on, I am able to access folders on another Windows 7 32bit PC and that PC can access mine. After a reboot of my PC, neither is possible - file & printer sharing has turned itself off in the adapter properties.
In Control panel / Advanced Sharing Settings I also have the file and printer sharing option specified - and that stays on across a reboot. But it appears it is not sufficient to allow these two PCs to see each other.

When I turn File & Printer sharing back on in the adapter properties, both PCs can then see each other (no reboot necessary).

On the other PC, file & printer sharing survives across a reboot without being reset.

I withdrew both PCs from our homegroup last night in an attempt to narrow down where the problem lies.
My PC is using the standard Windows firewall t present.

This is one aspect of various strange problems I have been "enjoying" with Windows 7 networking which I have mentioned in other threads Following suggestions in those threads I have turned off jiumbo packets and have created an identical logon id on both systems. The Intel web site confirms I have the up-to-date Intel network card driver.

This is very strange. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

I already posted this in networking but thought this might be a better place for it... sorry for duplicating

I've installed Windows 7 Home Prem, it's nice I must say, but have run into my 1st problem.... I cannot access a NAS that is attached to my network we use for backup.

I have configured the correct workgroup in network and have that and Homegroups working great, except every time that I try to connect to the NAS I get an error 1208.

Any help? An answer I just found on google said W7 home prem can't use Nas any one else hear this? If so any solutions?

Other than the Windows Update issue that seems widespread, my Win 8 upgrade is working OK, but the Homegroup needs your help (I've searched and read the other threads here but no answers that fit).My Win 8 Pro (retail) upgrade over Win 7 HP (both 64bit) preserved my existing Workgroup. The desktop is ethernet to the router (D-Link DIR-655) and the laptop is wireless.As Woody says in his Win 8 book, a Homegroup coexists nicely within a Workgroup, and once set up initially by one PC, all are "equals" within the Homegroup without one being the "boss" over the other.At present on each machine, Network and Sharing Center show "joined" to a Homegroup as well as being in the Workgroup. The Win 7 network map sees the desktop. Win 8 has no such map, but does see the laptop's shared workgroup folders. Access to these is denied due to a permissions problem (see second theory below)Also, both machines show all the libraries I selected for the Homegroup as being shared.However, clicking on the navigation panel's Homegroup on the desktop's File Explorer and the laptop's Computer shortcuts produces a "No other homegroup PC's are available right now".The Homegroup troubleshooter finds no problems to solve on either PC.Each PC can ping the other's IP address.The above conditions remain the same even after I went into my Advanced Sharing and gave full control to Homegroup users on every folder. When that did not work, I decided to delete all such shared folders under my workgroup, to see if they were interfering with the Homegroup sharing. That left the workgroup functioning essentially for internet access and wireless printer sharing, nothing else.

I have two theories. The first is that Win 7's Homegroup Listener service will not start (another widespread Win 7 issue). The second is User name and password conflicts. For the first time in years since NT4, I'm logging on with a different user name and password to my desktop than what I use on the laptop, due to use of a Microsoft Account logon choice I made when installing Win 8. I've tried to go into my laptop's Control Panel|System to copy my Win 7 profile over to a new one with the same name as my desktop, but of course that "copy to" button remains grayed out as it has been for years.

If I create a new Win 8 local user separate from the Microsoft Account, with the same user name and password as my laptop, will I have to reinstall all my apps again? Other ideas?

I have some excessively slow networking in Windows 7. I thought at first it was one application (a payroll program), but I have reproduced the problem in Excel and Word.

The problem occurs when changing from one open file in the application to another. Firstly the File-Open dialog box takes around 45 seconds to appear. Then when I select a file to open the previous file takes another 45 seconds to close. When that has happened the new file opens at normal speed. As I have said, I have tried the same sequence of events in Excel and found it similarly sluggish.

The machine where the files are stored is a fast Windows 7 machine, and the client machine is a somewhat slower, although still reasonably fast, Windows 7 laptop. Win 7 Ultimate in both cases.

I have tried with the Homegroup enabled and disabled, with and without a mapped drive letter, and via Wifi or wired network with no appreciable difference between any of these scenarios. Opening files is always a perfectly acceptable speed if the file is opened from Explorer, or indeed once the file-Open dialog has finally opened.

This slow experience has only happened since Windows 7 - back in the old days when both ends were XP pro the speed was never an issue.

I have Googled many times for any hints and got nowhere. Hopefully I will have more luck here!

Yes, I posted this under networking a couple of days ag, but nobody has responded, so I hope I will be forgiven for reposting under Windows 7... For a couple of years we have run with our two PCs accessing files via our wired network on a ReadyNAS box quite happily. Miscellaneous shared files, backups, photos, media etc on several Shares have all been accessible to both our PCs. We run Windows 7 Home Premium. No Homegroup. The shares each have distinct drive letters in windows explorer.

Suddenly for no apparent reason I find that from my PC I can see everything, all the folder listings, etc., but I cannot copy files into any of the folders. My wife's PC still has full access.

I am rather at a loss to explain this. I am not aware of having done anything to cause this.

It is easy to get drawn into possible red herrings when tackling a problem like this and I am trying to avoid getting dragged down to too much detail, as there may well be a basic problem in my settings that accounts for everything.

But I will relate one strange bit of evidence. I seem to be able to copy a file into the root of these shares but not into any of the folders on them.

I have thought about fiddling with the security settings in the properties of each folder - eg. reset read only, allow full access - but why should that be necessary and it will be time consuming? Something basic has gone wrong.

I will pause at this point before I confuse the picture further. Any ideas anyone as to what has caused this problem?

Thanks, David HS

I have a problem that I just can't figure out.

I have a laptop computer running Windows 7 Pro that I've used for a few years successfuly on my home network. I recently went on vacation and successfully connected to hotel computers, assigning them the Public profile.

When I got home, I can see my network name and connect to the internet. However, all the computers on my home network are not accessible and visible. This is true no matter if I connect by Wi-Fi or ethernet.

network problems2.jpg

I can run Network Scanner (a windows program the searches the local network when you enter a IP range) that identifies any computers or printers or network devices it finds, with the associated IP address. When I run this program, all the network devices show up. If I double-click on an IP address in Network Scanner of a networked computer, Windows Explorer opens and I can then move or copy files.

network problems3.jpg

What I can't do is have notepad++, for instance, open and save files to a network computer as I could before I went away. Also, My Network doesn't show the other computers. I have no problem running Firefox and getting on the internet. I have run the network diagnostics, and I get the following error message: Problem Found: file and print sharing resource (network name) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts.
network problems.jpg

However, I have another Windows 7 Pro computer, a desktop, that has no problem connecting to this XP computer. I also have another XP computer and a Windows 98 computer that is on the network and they successfully connect to each other and the Windows 7 desktop. I don't have a Homegroup setup, just the normal workgroup. The only problem is with the laptop. I suspect something was changed, unbeknownst to me, while I was away and connected to a public network. I can't figure out what it is.

I have searched for a solution on line, talked to friends who are knowledgeable and am stymied.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi All,

I'll try to keep this as short and sweet as possible without leaving anything out. I would ~greatly~ appreciate some help with the issue.

For many years now, I have been running the following setup for my remote office and home network

DSL modem (with ALL Gateway/DHCP/PPPoE Features OFF)

LinkSys RVS5000 Router - Acting as DHCP, PPPoE, Wireless access point etc. I have assigned the IP Pool to be -> 50. I did this on purpose because my office in orlando that I VPN into is using the 192.168.1.XXX pool, and I didn't want any IP Conflicts while my VPN was up between my remote office and home network.

My Windows XP workstation, Static assigned to via Linksys 54G PCI card (Running Cat5 was not an option to my desk location). I then have a Linksys 5 port Hub plugged into the LAN port of this workstation, and my voip phone plugged into the hub.I had the LAN TCP/IP set to a static of 192.168.254.X and the default gateway set to the same as the PC (, which is the Router) I had ICS turned on, and it had no problem sharing the Wireless with the LAN/Hub/voip phone setup. I would also do this with my XP laptop which allowed me to move throughout the house and work, with my phone. Essentially I was sharing the wireless internet out to the LAN and to the phone with a hub instead of a crossover cable.

Ok, so long story short, I recently had to upgrade the machine from XP to Win7 x86. I've gotten everything installed and arranged, but am having a doozy of a time getting my ICS setup working again. I have assigned the same workgroup, (not homegroup) and turned on the ICS. I then added the LAN setup, just as it was, (using an address from my 192.168.254.XXX local pool for the LAN just like it was) and it doesn't work. I then (through MUCH trial and error) found that if I set the IP address for the LAN to a static 192.168.1.XX(with the same default gateway, DNS etc) it actually works for some reason..however like i said in the beginning, that is my work's pool/scheme, and everytime I connect my vpn, it kills the phone. as soon as I disconnect the VPN, the phone comes right back up.

I have tried everything I can think of to find out why 192.168.1.XX works and NOTHING else does and I can't seem to get myself to the answer. Is there something in 7's firewall that says only thing on that scheme get through? I have tried enabling everything for public networks (and private) with no luck.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated, and I hope I've been clear enough. I can post and logs that would help, just let me know where they are! Thanks!!

Hi all,

I know this subject was discussed extensively and I read quite a few posts about it but couldn't solve the problem.

After installation of win 7 64 RC and after I set homegroup I could see the other 3 computers in my home network. I could access files on them (not vise versa - this I didn't solve yet ).

Now, I don't know what happened, all other computers are gone from the 'network' I see when I open windows explorer. All I see under 'network' is this win 7 computer.

Please help,

Hi All,

I've decided to start learning PowerShell and although I've ordered a couple of books I don't have them yet. I've been working with the "Windows PowerShell Primer" {downloaded from MS}. My problem is that every time I try to execute the command: get-WmiObject -Class Win32_BIOS -ComputerName [computername] I get a RPC error {see graphic}. I've done some research on the net and I've tried turning on services and configuring the firewall with NetSh advfirewall set currentprofile settings remotemanagement enable on both my Desktop & Laptop {both 64Bit Win 7}.

Additional Info: There are 4 PCs on the network (2) Win-7 64 Bit, (1) Win-7 32 Bit, (1) WinXP Pro XP-3.
I am NOT using Homegroups. See graphic 2 for relevant services settings.

Any Ideas?

I did a clean install of Win 7 HP on a new desktop PC. I have internet access and can see folders on my other Win 7 HP PC but can not access the files. Both PC's are set to share. When I go to network page I get a box that says "To view shared resources, first join the homegroup created by CHUCK (which is me). When I click the 'join now' button it asks me for the password I created when I created the homegroup. I don't recall doing this and when I click on "Where can I find the homegroup password?", a help windows opens and says (1)to 'Click to open HomeGroup.' and (2) Click View or print the homegroup password. Only problem is there is no view OR password.
I have run the troubleshooter and found that (1) the IPv6 is not working, however when I go to the ethernet card and click on properties it shows as installed and working. (2) In Device Manager I have a yellow ! on MS Teredo Tunneling Adapter (under network adapters). Under properties for this it states "This device is not started (Code 10).
Thanks for ANY help.
