I suppose another way to import multiple Excel tabs into SharePoint would be to write a simple program that concatenates the tabs together to create a single tab, then import that.
Also, if you are broadcasting the entire screen from Chromecast and it’s choppy or has bad audio, you can install RealPlayer Cloud to fix the problem. After you’ve installed RealPlayer Cloud, set up a cloud location that is your local drive, then cast straight from the “cloud” (local drive) and it will play your downloaded movie cast as if it was through a tab instead of the entire screen – this will work better because it won’t have to worry about the resolution, it just plays the file 🙂
Veeam can also have a slow restore rate when you are using non English characters in file names when doing a file level restore (bug). A workaround to this is to do a full restore to another VLAN then copy the files out of the VM (perhaps detach the disk and attach to another VM temporarily) or use the Copy To restore.
Veeam restores can also go slow if your restore account doesn’t have permission to the files you are restoring.
Finally, upgrading to the latest version of Veeam Backup and Replication can fix slow restore speeds.July 24, 2014 at 10:11 am in reply to: XXX Refers To A Location That Is Unavailable – MKLink #552
Seems that the XXX refers to a location that is unavailable… error is related to user permissions because it works for another user on the same computer. Strange that I can view the files going via the network location instead of the symbolic link :s
It was probably just wrong in the BIOS when it arrived. Just change the clock to the correct time and you’ll be fine 🙂
If it’s a domain joined computer you’ll need it to be within 5 minutes of the domain controllers time, otherwise it won’t sync the time with the domain controller.July 18, 2014 at 11:09 am in reply to: How To Migrate The Trend Micro Control Manager Database #499
Well, it looks like either:
- our USB boot disk doesn’t have a system partition on it (in other words, it doesn’t have an operating system to boot to)
- Your USB boot disk has a disk error (The USB disk might be broken or the system partition has been corrupted)
- You may have the boot order set incorrectly – perhaps it’s trying to boot to the hard drive that doesn’t have a system partition on it, instead of booting to the USB disk
To fix the non-system-disk-or-disk-error, check that the PC is set to boot from USB (BIOS settings). Failing that, try recreating your USB boot disk.
Is the remote site on a FrameRelay / OneOffice type connection or a separate broadband connection?
If a user in the remote site does an ipconfig, what IP do they get?
Just to clarify:
The printer is in the central office and the users can’t print from remote sites?
The printer is in a remote office and the users can’t print from the central office?
Can the users that can’t print, ping the remote printer?
I’m using the SG CachePress plugin and CloudFlare. It seems that SG CachePress, was caching the login settings so when I clicked on a new page, it gave me the page the cahced (not logged in) page.
Since I couldn’t find any settings to tell it not to cache the logins, I disabled the SG CachePress plugin and it’s now working.July 13, 2014 at 8:55 pm in reply to: Is The Windows Defender Sufficient For Protecting A PC From Viruses? #442
I hear that Windows Defender doesn’t have the same level of security around preventing viruses from stopping it working, like Trend Micro does, for example. There is no uninstall password and it’s quite easy to disable the service and it won’t start up again.
That being said, Windows Defender is certainly better than Norton 360… My friend had a virus on her PC that a fully paid up copy of Norton 360 couldn’t detect. Windows Defender picked it up straight away.
Anyway, to answer your question, I don’t think that Windows Defender is sufficient for protecting a PC from viruses. These days the virus landscape is very different and it’s no longer sufficient to have just an antivirus product. You need the following to protect from zero day threats:
- A decent firewall with intrusion prevention and the rest
- Antispam software
- A Good patching regime
- Browser search protection to blacklist known bad sites
I think that Windows Defender is a good piece of the puzzle though, but not sufficient to stop viruses on its own.
Does it always get stuck doing the same update, or does it consider the update successful after you cold restart it?
If you are using a branded PC, such as an HP, you can download the Realtek drivers from the manufacturer’s website.
If you aren’t using a branded PC, you have a few options:
- You can get the sound card and try to find a serial number written on it. You can then Google the serial number and get the correct driver that way
- You can launch devmgmt.msc from the run command, find the sound card with the missing driver and look at the properties and try to automatically find the driver from the Driver tab
- If that doesn’t work, you can go to the Details tab and select Hardware ID from the dropdown. This will give you a hardware ID that you can search Google for to find out exactly what model the card is and what driver to use.
❗ Note: Although 3rd party websites are useful to give you details about your hardware, you should only download drivers from the official manufacturer’s website unless you like cleaning up viruses from your PC
Don’t forget to remove the power cable first!
Incidentally, if you don’t have a grounding strip, you can just tough the computer case to earth you.
After the graphics card is installed you need to install the graphics card’s drivers and any bloatware that comes with it, if you wish.July 10, 2014 at 9:34 am in reply to: How To Display The Printer's Secret Dots i.e. Fingerprints? #385
