Reset Local Area Connection 2 Adapter


When i upgraded to windows 7 64 from vista 64 a few weeks ago i began getting stop page in my internet connection requiring "reset the local area connection 2 adapter". The internet ceases during video-on-demand downloading and requires manually running the network troubleshooter which "reset the local area connection 2 adapter" to get the connection back. I have nvidia nfp 3600, driver is up to date according to nvidia's test app. There are a ton of people with this issue, and as many superstitious suggestions, seemingly none embraced by microsoft as a definitive cause and solution. No, i don't want to install a vista driver on my windows 7 box.

No, i don't have the "task overload" option to turn off. No, changing the internet rate to 100mbps from auto didn't fix it. No, i'm not doing complex registry alterations to "see" if it goes away. No, reseting the cable modem didn't fix it. I want to know microsoft acknowledges it to be a general problem so i can follow the progress on providing an update to fix it.

Remote Desktop Connection Setting Reset Indexing

I recently tried setting the local devices and resources setting in remote desktop connection to share my drives. After i did this and connected, my index item count went from almost 25000 to almost nothing first of all, why would this happen? My c: drive was still my c: drive, it's not like it had been removed or renamed or anything. Second, while i wait however long it takes for all my stuff to get re-indexed, is there any way to undo the un-indexing? And last, is there a safe way to use the local devices and resources setting in remote desktop connection to share my drives without resetting my indexing?

My question will be, is there any possibilities where i can have consideration and instead activate the product key over here in the united states because i wil be here for 5 more months?

System Icons In Notification Area

I have 1 system icon, "power", that is not showing in the notification area. When i go to "customize notification area" and click "turn system icons on or off", the"power" icon is off and grayed out. I searched and found others reporting the same problem and did the posted "accepted solution" which was located here:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/945011. I first did it step my step manually and when that did not fix it i rebooted and ran the automatic "fixit" which also did not work. Anyone have a fix for this?

Password Reset

I just purchased dell inspiron 1545 and set up my user name and password. I've ordered my modem. I bought a transfer cable to connect my older pc to this one to transfer my files. The problem is that i can't log on because it won't accept my password. I just set it yesterday when i took it out of the box. I've checked everything i know such as caps lock and possibly transposing my password. The password i set up is the same one i've been using on my other pc for years, so i know i didn't forget it.

I need to find out how to bypass the log in to reset the password.

User Account Has Reset Itself

I recently restarted my computer, after uninstalling my "dell support center" because it's been annoying. When i logged back into my user account, it was like i was logging onto a brand new account. No files were in my documents etc. And no shortcuts were on my screen. However, all my files are still on my hard drive. Is there something i can do to fix this and get my old account back? I've checked and its still the same account name, just everything gone.

Power Settings Reset

Although i have setup my laptop not to enter sleep mode when i close the lid and this has worked several times, after installing updates this setting does not work anymore. The settings themselves did not change, just the behavior. I tried to change them back to default and then change them back to how i want (i.e. Not to enter sleep mode when the lid is closed), but the laptop still goes into sleep mode when the lid is closed.

Any ideas where i can begin troubleshooting?

Monitor Unwanted Auto Reset

I have recently installed windows 7 premium onto my desktop. It has been performing reasonable trouble free but this latest glitch has me perplexed. It has been hot, but the machine was performing well until i left it for a short time and came back to find that the monitor setting had reset to create a blank screen and the "not optimum mode. Recommended mode:1280x1024 60hz". I have restarted the machine and the program is restarting properly, but there is nothing on the screen, just this message.

The machine has quad core q6600 2. 4ghz *mb cache
4gb dual channel ddr2 800 mhz memory
Nvidia geforce 8600gt - 512 mb pci-e graphics card
Samsung syncmaster 710n monitor

I have encountered this on an xp machine and the solution is to interrupt the boot process get into the a mode where you can change the monitor settings, but this was done by a technician. Any solutions?

Login Password Recovery / Reset

A friend of mine is setting up a new laptop with windows 7. He gave his assistant his chosen password to access windows, however, she forgot to write the case combination she used down. So now he can't access windows. Is there a password recovery section or a way that he can reset this. I am not sure if there were alternate security questions asked that he could refer to, but getting around the password with alternate questions, would he still need the password to be able to reset this?

Reset Password Without Administrator / Disk

I just got my new computer and powered it on. Windows asks for my passwords, and i enter them both (i am sure i entered the same password both times). Windows 7 boots up, goes through the set up. Then says there are a couple updates, to restart the computer. I restart the computer. Now when i try to log in, it says my username/password are incorrect and i can't reset it because i haven't even been able to set up an administrator account or a password reset disk. How do i fix this?

Reset All User Permissions To Default

How to reset all user permissions to default? I accidentally stopped a user permission change task and now my system is all messed up, programs won't load correctly after reboot, etc. . I can't change the permissions back because it tells me that i do not have access to certain folders. When i try to find these folders to change them manually, for some reason they are not visible any more. (I have show hidden files to show them). I tried a system restore and the restore points are corrupt, so, i have been looking for a way to reset all permissions to default or factory setting if you will.

Is there any way to reset all permissions to default without going one by one?

Reset Back To Admin Account In Xp Mode

I have set the admin acct to limited user in xp mode, is there a way to reset to admin? I set the xp mode user to limited for security reasons, only to realize later that it was the admin account that i had changed. As a limited user i can't run my xp software because it requires the user to be a power user or administrator. I'm looking for a way to get an admin acct back in xp mode. Or, if i need to reinstall xp mode how can i save my data? I would need a fairly detailed explanation as i am new to windows 7.

Reset Security Settings / User Permissions To Default

I replaced my winxp computer with a new windows 7 machine this weekend and i'm still getting my feet wet with the new os. I tried to download and install a game, but i kept getting error messages indicating that i didn't have the proper rights. The solution ended up being to set the uac settings to zero. Before i got there, i made some unfortunate attempts to change permissions on the c: drive that got stopped part way through due to errors popping up.

Is there a way to set my permissions all back to default without recovering back to before the changes were made? There would be quite a bit of work (downloaded programs, rearranging files after the transfer from my old machine, etc) lost if i just use the recovery tool.

Flickering Pop-ups Reset Themselves Every Couple Seconds

I just installed windows 7 ultimate and installed all the latest drivers for my machine. The problem i'm having is that all windows-related windows and popups reset themselves every couple seconds. If you do nothing, they just sit there and flicker but if you try to drag a window around it resets to its original position. Pop up menus like the network connections are almost impossible to use in this state because they disappear almost instantly after you click on them. This appears to only affect system windows because programs like firefox and nvidia display manager work perfectly with zero flickering or problems of any kind.

Like i said, all drivers are up to date and the only other software installed is firefox. If anyone else has seen this problem and knows a solution, i would really appreciate your help.

Phantom Local Disk In Computer

I'm not sure what caused it, perhaps some software i installed, but i now have a phantom "local disc" q showing in computer with 0 bytes used and free. I cannot access it. It does not show in either device manager or disk management. I have a card reader, but it shows as a removable drive f when i do use it so that's not the problem. I am using a linksys wec600n (broadcom) wireless adapter in the smartcard 54 slot, but that should not create a disk i would think.

How to i remove this "phantom disk" from computer since i cannot access it in device manager to uninstall, nor can i see it in disk management. Even 3rd party partitioning software such as partition wizard cannot detect this disk. I just want it gone.

Local User & Group Management

Recently i just got my win7 upgrade to the home premium edition for my desktop, which is going well and runs smoothly in conjunction w/ my ubuntu laptop. During my setup process on any computer; i disable/rename the default guest/admin accounts just as matter of old habit from xp it days. Now imagine my surprise when i went to my computer>manage and didn't see the user accounts.

My question is, is this something not apart of the home premium edition of win7? And if it is apart of this edition, where did it get moved to?
