How To Delete Domain From Computer Name

Dec 28, 2009

Some time ago after installing Windows 7 on my computer, I added a domain name (don't ask me why - I was just fiddling around ). Now, I cannot delete it. From my dos commands, when I do a pathping, I get Rick-PC.mydomain.net and I want to get rid of the domain part of it since no one else has that domain.

We all log in here on our computers not from any domain controller. We share an Internet pipe and a simple file server.

I have tried going in through Computer|Properties|, under computer name - 'Change Settings' under "To rename this computer click Change" [Change], and under [More] where it states a DNS suffix, it is blank.

Domain Slowing Down Computer?

Sep 12, 2011

Our setup is as follows: Users are in a remote location connected by satellite link to the domain server. The domain server is DNS and DHCP server for client computers. Because of the satellite connection data transmission has a longer than normal latency delay but transfer speeds are not bad (0.5 mps).I can understand that when logging in, a client computer might experience a longer login time as Windows communicates with the domain server to validate credentials.However, after logging in, are there network activities being performed by the client computer with the domain server on a permanent basis that would make the client computer much slower than normal while performing local tasks? Users report that when logged into the domain, their computers slow down significantly even when opening files on their hard disks.It might be that other issues are causing the problem, but I would like to understand better how the client - server relationship works when logged into a domain so that we can test further.

Computer Is Not In A Domain Environment

Apr 25, 2012

The computer is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit edition version 6.1 Build 7601 service pack 1. The computer is not in a domain environment. I believe this may be a security issue however I completed an in-place windows 7 upgrade to try and fix the problem but after all of the windows updates, etc the error remains and appears every time the computer is rebooted..[code] The relevant status code says that the "Object already exists" which I think is far more relevant then some memory issue. Do I have to delete some file or registry entry? Or is it a security issue?

I'm currently developing a new SOE from scratch for the company I currently work for as my first real project I have a few concerns surrounding what should be included and what can actually be achived.When I create the image from PC1 does it copy absolutly everything EG: Computer settings and Product keys?

Corrupt User Profile When Removing And Adding Computer To Domain?

We have removed a computer from the domain because of some network issues.When we logged in to the computer as a local administrator we've noticed that the user folder of the domain user who was previously logged to that computer was almost empty(except for the appdata folder).When we joined the pc back in the domain the computer made a new profile.Unfortunaly the user did save some documents on his dekstop in the old profile.

Can't Connect To Home-group From A Domain-joined Windows 7 Computer

Apr 19, 2012

I have a Windows 7 PC that's joined to a domain. The network location says "Domain network" and cannot be changed. According to Microsoft, you must set your location to "Home" in order to be able to join a computer to an already existing HomeGroup.My advanced sharing settings for both Home and Domain (domain being the current profile) show all the sharing and discovery settings enabled. HomeGroup Listener and HomeGroup Provider services are started. My Windows Firewall is enabled. I can connect to \computername of my HomeGroup computers.However, I cannot join the HomeGroup. It says "There is currently no homegroup on your network." [URL]I verified the group policy settings do not prohibit me from changing my network location from Domain to Home so that I may join a HomeGroup. However, I still cannot click on "Domain network" in order to change it to Home.How can I join this computer to the HomeGroup?

How To Delete Corrupt / Ghost Files From Computer

Oct 2, 2012

I have this really annoying file in my library on windows 7 and I can't seem to delete it. I've tried the traditional ways of deleting it, dragging it to the the recycling bin, renaming it, copying and pasting it somewhere else and then trying, using software programs called "Unlcocker" and "CCleaner", and even going into the CMD prompt of my computer attempting to remove it from there; side note...(I'm not the best at using CMD commands and navigating through there, so maybe I've missed something). Ive also tried to run chkdisk command to see if it was some sort of registry error and I've also tried safe boot mode to see if I could simply delete it that way. The problem with this file is that my computer cant seem to find it on my hard-drive, its like the file doesn't exists, its just a icon in my pictures document.

I have several machines running Windows 7 64 bit, on which I am running the XP Mode VM. Both the host and the vm are connected to the Domain. I have been having problems where a person will be logged into the vm, then minimize it to work on other things.When they try to get back on the vm, they have to log back in, but are informed that they domain cannot be reached. The only way I have been able to solve this is to un-join the vm from the domain, then rejoin it to the domain. The vm will be in hibernation when the login attempt is made. Is there a setting I need to make to keep this problem from happening

Windows 7 Can't See All Domain Computers

Jul 21, 2011

I have a windows 7 pro that is connected to the domain, but it has a lot of issues, it can discover only about 5 machines from about 50.Also no one in the network can access in through LAN although it can join the domain with no problem. I tried lot of things like:

- Rejoin it to the domain.

- Rename PC name before rejoin it to the domain.

- Remove all profiles and create new ones.

- Remove DNS entry and AD computer entry regarding this machine.

I think it is a system problem not a network problem, but i don't wanna reinstall the system as i have a lot of licenses for it and it is hard to reset these licenses again.

Error When Joining Domain?

Apr 23, 2011

I'm trying to join a domain on Windows 7 and I receive the below error message. I'm testing with 2 computers on the network. The other computer is a server with Windows Server 2008 and DNS installed. I set the DNS on Windows 7 to the server's IP address. Installed domain controller using the frasersales.com domain. After restarting the server the computer logins into the domain. The A record for frasersales.com is also pointing to a website. Not sure if this will affect it.Pinging the domain controller works. I was reading on the web that after installing the DC there should be SRV records in the DNS managers domain name folder. Looks like these are missing. Is it possible to manually add them?

Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:Windowsdebugdcdiag.txt.The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "frasersales.com":The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.frasersales.comCommon causes of this error include the following:- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. his computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:192.168.0.3- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

Logging Out Of A Domain Account?

Apr 29, 2011

So I recently added a new system running x86 windows 7 to the network, and when I log out or shut down using a local account,everything works as it should. If I log on to one of the user domain accounts, however, these actions don't work. Instead, the start menu and icons disappear and I'm left with the desktop background indefinitely.Unplugging the network cable and plugging it back in then makes the system proceed to regular log out / shut down procedures, but I'm not sure why... Any ideas on some setting that is mis-set?Also, this only seems to happen the first time I attempt to log out or shut down since the last reboot. So, if I log in to a domain account and try to log out, it will do this "freeze". Then, I unplug the network cable and plug it back in, and then the system logs out of the account. If I then log back in and try to log out again, it will work fine. But if I reboot the machine, the problem returns.

Logged Into The Domain But Can't Ping DNS?

I have a computer that is a member of a domain and can log into the domain but once logged in it cannot access anything on the network or even ping either DNS. From another computer on the network I cannot ping that machine either. When logged in locally we ensured that all the TCP/IP settings were correct and the Windows Firewall is turned off.

Where else should I look for the cause of this issue? Why would the computer not be able to ping either DNS but still be able to log into the domain?

We recently moved to a different domain, previous to that, OUR DC had our login script and all worked well. The login script is defined in our GPO and works well for everyone else (running XP), I'm the only one on Windows 7 and its not running for me.Its a simple .vbs script. The odd thing is, when I save the file to my desktop and run the .vbs locally, it runs fine, and maps the drives I need, etc., it just won't run when I log into the domain. If I log into another machine running WinXP, the login script runs just fine.
