Hi and welcome to the site! I split your question out to a new topic because it’s a new question (helps people searching). Also coz I’m a control freak lol.
From memory IE checks for an updated version of the xml site list something like 90 seconds after starting the browser. As I mention in the previous article, I’m not working in an environment that uses IE Enterprise Mode anymore, otherwise I’d do some testing and let you know. I don’t know how often, or if it checks regularly thereafter.
I believe that an XML site list is cached in the users profile and a version number is cached in the users registry. Gotchas to watch out for if you’re doing funny stuff with user profiles, like profile management such as VMware User Environment Manager.May 12, 2016 at 4:48 pm in reply to: SM Bus Controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C22&SUBSYS_20498086&REV_04 #1832
After installing the drivers from the CD, it seems that the SM Bus Controller with hardware ID PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C22&SUBSYS_20498086&REV_04 is actually an Intel(R) 8 Series/C220 Series SMBus Controller – 8C22. Hope that helps someone, if you do find a direct download link to the Intel website, please do share it 🙂
You can also download the driver from Dells website for the network card with hardware ID PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_15B7&SUBSYS_06c71028&REV_31April 19, 2016 at 3:37 pm in reply to: PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_8241&SUBSYS_2ADC103C&REV_02 USB Driver #1809
Actually, that URL didn’t work. Seems they don’t support Windows 7. At least I know what the device is now – it’s a RealTek card reader, not just a USB Controller.April 19, 2016 at 3:28 pm in reply to: PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_8241&SUBSYS_2ADC103C&REV_02 USB Driver #1808
Never mind, I found the drivers for my USB controller here: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-ENVY-23-All-in-One-Desktop-PC-series/5295879/model/5319258March 13, 2016 at 4:41 pm in reply to: Can't Connect To This Network (WiFi) – Windows 8.1 #1773
Hmmm, that’s a pain because you can’t restart the router. Maybe ask the owners of the network connection for help. It sounds like you’ve done everything you can at your end.
I wonder if it works for other users?
Also, if your Chromecast is slow because lots of other people are using your wifi network, then consider buying a wifi access point (wifi AP) to connect to your router, then set up another wifi network just for the Chromecast to connect to. For best results, have the wireless AP plugged into your router with a cable and position the wireless AP as close as you can to your Chromecast, to give it the best signal.
Of course, this is only useful if your wifi bandwidth is being used up, not your internet bandwidth 😉February 23, 2016 at 8:36 am in reply to: What Rights Does The Service Run As Account Need For PowerAdmin Server Monitor? #1741
You can set the PowerAdmin Server Monitor “Service Run As” account permissions to servers through the following group policy:
Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment
The above post tells you which user rights need to be set for PowerAdmin Server Monitor to be able to monitor your Windows servers.February 23, 2016 at 7:30 am in reply to: How To Turn Off The Kindle Screensaver – Permanently #1740
Kind of a new thread, but I wonder if it’s possible to rebuild the operating system on the Kindle to fix your issue?
Note that the above Google Chromecast review was for the first version of Google Chromecast. The second version should be a lot better, so I’ll review that once I get around to buying one.
The SM Bus Controller driver with the same Hardware ID (PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3D&SUBSYS_05A41028&REV_04), can also be downloaded from the same Dell website, I think it was the chipset driver that I installed which fixed the problem.January 21, 2016 at 6:55 am in reply to: How To Deploy Internet Explorer 11 From SCCM 2007 / 2012 #1636
While the script did install IE 11 in our environment, I don’t think we ended up rolling IE out with SCCM that way.
With some testing (despite Microsoft’s recommendation), it turns out that you don’t need to reboot in between installing these files, so no need for the script.
How we deployed it in the end, I don’t remember. We might have even used IEAK 11.
So it would seem that when choosing the cache ratio from the HP Cache Manager, you have to decide whether you’re going to do more reads or writes to your storage. In addition to this, you want to consider what type of RAID your array is set up with as some types of RAID do fast reads but slower writes, in which case, you would want to Cache more writes and less reads.
I’m pretty sure you can, unfortunately I’m not currently working at a company that uses IE Enterprise mode, so I can’t see how I’ve done this in the past.
❗ Correction: It was actually the Intel Chipset Device Software that was required for PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_A123&SUBSYS_06C71028&REV_31, not the Management Engine Interface. The Intel Chipset Device Software can be downloaded from the same link.
