Problem Opening Files On Server


We have a small network; windows 2008 sbs and 10 workstations. 2 of the workstations are running windows 7 enterprise. Only those 2 workstations that are running windows 7 are having the following problem:intermittently, when attempting to open files from the server (word and excel definitely, possibly other types) explorer will lock up. The document will not load. Only way to break out of it is to use task manager to kill explorer.exe and then reboot. Ll workstations and the server are updated with current ms updates. We don't have any errors in event logs when this issue occurs. We've disabled antivirus to no avail. Any ideas on what to look for?

Opening Files With The Correct Program

I have done something to my laptop and i am not sure how i did it. I tried to open a pdf file and it would not open. I proceeded with trying to open it with adobe reader. I figured out later that the reason it did not open is because the original file could not be found. The original file was on a flash drive. Anyways, the problem is now when i try to open a file it tries to open with the adobe reader and all the icons on my desktop are the adobe reader icon.

I think when i tried to open that specific file using "open with" it changed everything. My question is: is their a way to change it to where the files will automatically open with the program they are supposed to? Is it something simple or will i need to seek professional help?

Opening Chm Files Using Ie8

My name is hyeree kang from lgelectronics. We're developing user's manual with adobe framemaker. I have a few questions about ie8 and opening chm files. I've recently heard that ie8 creates security warning notice when i download chm files from web. And when i open downloaded chm files, it doesn't show any contents. Though our chm files have absolutely no defect, our customers may feel anxiety about opening files when they see security warning. What can i do about this problem?

Opening Files From A Specific Source

When using ie7 i am able to download my work tickets for my job remotely. In this i am able to open subfiles like contracts, maps etc for individual customers.

I cannot use any other source to get into my company files other than ie mozilla google they will not be accepted.

Opening .sln Files With Visual Basic

I am trying to mod a game (half life 2) when i stumbled upon this type of file - . Sln, i have been told that windows visual opens it, so i downloaded microsoft visual express version. After installing, my computer told me that it needed to restart before it can take effect, except once i restarted, i couldn't find the program. I guess to sum it up- how do i open microsoft visual basic (i know i've installed it correctly) and secondly-  is there a program already installed on my computer that can open . Sln files?

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Autorun.inf Help With Opening Txt Files

I have always been using autorun files, but i decided to discover more features that it has to offer. Anyone who has any experience knows what this code does:

Shell\setup\command=setup.exe
Shell\setup=run setup

Does anyone know how to open something like a text file instead of the executable? I've tried doing this:

Shell\text\command=class.txt
Shell\text=open text file

But that just gave me an error. Does anyone know how i could set that up, and if its even possible.

Problem Saving / Opening Files In Explorer & Programs

I have problem saving and opening files in windows explorer and third-party programs. I've been having this problem for a couple of months now and it's very annoying for example, when i use the snipping tool in windows 7 the files will not save so i have to take a print screen of that and open it with more software. Also, when i download files in firefox and other things, clicking 'open file location' does absolutely nothing. I assume these two issues are related as they started occurring around the same time.

Dns Server

I have a windows dell inspiron. I have a wired connection to the router and there is a problem with the dns. It says there is a problem with the dns server that it can't fix. My other computer is wireless and connects to the internet no problem. I can enter the ip address and get to the website but not the www.Msn.com type address. I spent hours with first my internet provider, then microsoft, then dell (who assures me there is no hardware problem). As best they can figure it is a third party software conflict causing the problem.

My latest attempt to solve the problem was to install windows 7 (before i had windows vista). After 3 hours of going online with no problem the same "dns configuration" problem cropped up. During all these problems i am able to download torrents using utorrent. Does anyone have any ideas? I am at a loss.

Websites Opening On Their Own

I am getting a web site over the top of others - possible virus. The site is a video (tv /movies etc) site that brings itself up after ie has been open for a while - 15 or so minutes - and does not shut down by closing ie as it does not show up in the programs. I have only found it when asked to restore previous session. It generates over 10 instances of iexplore.exe in task manager (processes), but not in applications. The only way to stop it is to restart / shut down the computer, or take out each process although some generate themselves if left.

Folder Keeps Opening Up

Every time turn on my computer, the c:windowssystem32 folder automatically opens (full screen). Under one user account, it opens up completely, under another user account it doesn't open up but an error message opens up (about 5 or 6 times) saying that the folder should be associated with another file. This leads me to believe that the desired setting to change is in the user's settings someplace but i can't find where. Or i am wrong completely.

Domain Server Not Reachable

I have a problem going to a certain website. Never had a problem before. It's www.Thegoodcook.com. It keeps saying. Internet explorer cannot display the webpage. Internet cannot display this website. This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The domain name server (dns) is not reachable.
The domain name server (dns) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
There might be a typing error in the address.
If this is an https (secure) address, click tools, click internet options, click advanced, and check to be sure the ssl and tls protocols are enabled under the security section

How To Access Home Server Ui?

I am volunteering for an organization where i need to install hp media-smart ex490 windows home server to 5 windows 7 machines. I have really very basic "setting up" question if someone could help please. All i know about it is that i will have to connect it to the modem or a wireless router so that it gets connected to the network. What after that? 

1. How do i access the windows home server (whs) ui on all the 5 machines ?
2. Do i need to buy a separate monitor for the whs (windows home server)?

Dns Server Problem

I purchased an hp mini netbook at xmas time. It came with windows 7 starter. I use it mainly for work. In the beginning i had no problem with being able to connect with my wireless work network. Just this week however, i have the issue with it connecting. It tells me that it is connected but without internet access. When i run a diagnostic on it, it tells me "dns server may be experiencing problems". When i run further info on it, it tells me the problem found is "your dns server might be unavailable". I'm not very computer savy, so it goes without saying that i have done no changes to my computer since i got it. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Print Server Issues

I have a trendnet te100-p2u1p print server that is not playing well with windows 7 ultimate 32bit. The server worked well with my network, win xp sp3 32bit and the hp psc950xi. Run the server install cd and i can print test pages like crazy. I connected the hp to the win7 machine w/ usb and loaded the windows update driver and it works well. Reconnect the hp to the server, run the server install cd and win7 finds the server and sees the hp. It asks to reuse the existing driver and i say yes. I send off the test page and win7 does not show any errors but nothing is printed.

The local printer port is created and the ip address is correct, looks the same as in xp, but can not get it to print  tried to install new printer and create the same port config but that causes print errors in queue. So there are two different problems. I have installed printers in the past using these methods but not with win7. Any suggestions on where to correct my issues with printing?I almost forgot, i searched this forum for help with the key word p2u1p and found "http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/bc837a7a-768c-41c5-85a7-9c89a556511f"

But it does not allow me to view the replies. This forum getting ready for windows 7 must have been removed.

Server Login Failed

I have a server running on windows server 2003, all the other 5 computers are able to map the drive in the server and login with the credientials i have. The problem: i just goit a new computer, custom built, i installed a fresh copy of windows 7 everything works fine, the internet is working, i see all the computers in the network and i also see both servers in the same work-group. I can go in the server and connect to the new computer using the correct login. However, when i try to map a drive on the server, it asks for a login username and password. I type in the right info a million times, and it says login failed, unknown user or wrong password.

But all the other computers connect to the server with the same login. I cannot login the server at all, both servers. Every time i type in the login info, it just says that the login failed and it gives me a refresh ( so i can retype) and if i keep pressing enter with the "wrong password" it does not lock me out or anything, it seems like i'm not even connecting or anything. I am pretty knowledgeable with computer, this has never happened, i have tried everything, this is not something common.

Print Server Problem

I have a d-link dp-300u print server. T has 2 lpt ports and 1 usb. I am using 1 lpt and the usb. Windows 7 finds the print server in network under other devices and even shows it with a name as a computer. Double click on that open it up and allows me to see the 3 ports on the server. If i try to connect at that point the os tells me that it cannot connect. I have gone the route of setting my printers up as ip ports and used a generic network print server listed there but as soon as i reset my router, the print server goes to another ip addr and i lose my printers.

I also tried to statically set the ip address of the server but i cna't get that to work either as the router just assigns an ip and pays no attention to what the server may want to do. Windows 7 finds the server under devices no matter what and finds it under computers. So why can't it automatically connect ot my printers?

Dns Server Is Not Responding

I use my laptop at home and work. At work i can no longer connect to the internet, my laptop is connecting to the router, but the router isn't connecting to the internet, my isp has confirmed that my service is working fine. The message i am getting is that the "dns server is not responding". I've gone into the ncpa. Cpl and looked at the settings there for "internet protocol version 4 (tcp/ipv4)" and they are as my isp has recommended, all automatic. Obviously i can't get any online help whilst at work - so having to ask all this from home - very frustrating, self employed, and this is killing me! 

I am using an adsl router, and ethernet cable, and i have windows 7. I have tried another router with wireless, and that is doing exactly the same thing. Laptop is connecting to internet at home no problem. Everything was fine last thursday, and on friday it wouldn't work, can't remember if i had any updates on thursday when closing down - but probably. By the way, i'm not very it savvy, and a lot of the jargon used on these forums is baffling to me, please can any answers be written as if you're talking to a total idiot! I can follow commands, but i don't understand what i'm doing!

Server Is Busy Program Not Responding

Recently i have noticed that when i am working on my laptop, windows 7 stalls and gives an error message of server busy and program not responding. I have purchased the system in april and have only added 3 programs that i use for work. When i use the self help or the troubleshooting program, the system says there is no problem and to get help online. I end up manually shutting down and restarting the system. It works for a while but does not remain consistent.

I have also noticed my outlook program seems to blink in the search section of the menu even though i have not used this feature. Can anyone provide any insight as to why this is happening? Oh i almost forgot, on the help menu it states there is a link to assist me and suggest that i "click here" for the answer. Well there is nothing to click on and when i click technical support link, it stalls again. Help me please.

Hp Laserjet 5m Drivers For Print Server

I work for a small private college and we have several old hp laserjet 4, 5 and 5m printers on campus. There are all network printers that are managed by a central print server. We have started to deploy windows 7 - 32 and 64 bit. We have not been able to find a driver to install on the print server. I know that if the printer were connected directly, it would automatically install, but we need an . Inf driver. Has anyone been able to work around this kind of problem?
