Network / Sharing :: Cannot Save System As Home Computer

Feb 9, 2013

When I go to advanced system settings and choose Home instead of business, when I save and restart it is still on Business network. I have windows 8 pro 64 bit on a HP pavilion elite 8 gb ram i6 1tb drive. I have made sure that the services below are running as well as set to Auto.

o Computer Browser
o DHCP Client
o DNS Client
o Network Connections
o Network Location Awareness
o Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
o Server
o TCP/IP Netbios helper
o Workstation

Also, I have recently "refreshed" my computer which I thought had fixed it. It actually fixed the "turn file sharing" not saving issue I was having, now this.

Network / Sharing :: Restarted XP Computer Now Cannot Access File On Windows 8

Sep 15, 2014

I had to restart a computer on our office network which uses Windows XP on Wednesday, September 17, 2014. Now I cannot access a file on a computer which uses Windows 8 unless I tell the Windows 8 computer to let EVERYONE access the file - which I don't want to do. A computer using Windows Vista on the same network has had no problems. I've created a new username on the Windows 8 computer and given the problem computer that name but still no access. I've enabled read/write file sharing and given the problem computer full access permissions but still can't get in. I removed all Microsoft updates that had been installed four days before the problem occurred on the Windows 8 computer and recovered the Windows XP system to the day before the problem occurred - still can't get in.

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Save Changes In Network And Sharing Center?

Aug 20, 2014

I've been trying to set up an old Savin 9033 printer through the company's router, but I couldn't find the network it's set up on from any other computer.

So I pull up Network & Sharing, see that Network Discovery is turned off.

I check it, go to click on "Save Changes" and nothing happens. I click it a few times and it kicks me back to the previous page, nothing saved. No password prompt or anything.

I double checked that all the appropriate services are running (DNS Client, SSDP Discovery, UPnP Device Host, Function Discoveryr Resource Publication, etc.) and made sure Network Discovery was allowed through Windows Firewall.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Pro - HomeGroup Settings Wont' Save

Jun 25, 2013

I'm using Win 8 Pro and i'm on a Private network which happens to be my Home Network. I'm having problem saving HomeGroup settings; I went through Change Advanced Sharing Settings then I checked Turn on network discovery and Turn on file and printer sharing, I clicked save and but when I return to the setting page again, the settings are not saved.

I've tried this several times but nothing seems to be working out. The same thing still happens when I go through Charms >> Change PC Settings >> HomeGroup >>Libraries and Devices.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Cannot Access Wireless Properties Or Save Password

Dec 28, 2012

Every time I sign into my windows 8 account at home it never automatically connects to it. I tried following the tutorial at [URL]......

However when I get up to the part where you are support to right click on the wifi connection to access view connection properties I am unable to. Right clicking on the wireless connection does absolutely nothing. I even tried clicking on it and holding and still nothing.

When I go to the network and sharing center and click on the wireless connection it pops up a dialogue called wi-fi status. However there is no button for wireless properties. I remember in windows 7 there use to be a tab where you change the key encryption type and there was a check box where you can save the password. Essentially I can't access the dialog box in page 10 of the above link.

All Programs Crash When Trying To Open Or Save

Dec 30, 2012

I've been having some major trouble with all of my programs. At first I thought it was just with my Adobe Creative suite, but then I noticed it was happening on my Office Suite. Then on firefox, IE, etc.

Every time I open up the window to save or open a file from a specific directory, the program crashes. Resetting my computer works for a while but after a few hours, it goes back to crashing all my programs. I'm getting very desperate as I have some looming deadlines and this is really affecting my work.

I've tried 'refreshing' my system and it says my drive is locked...

I've tried restoring a backup but get an error...

I've tried formatting my system and it says a partition is missing...

SaveAs Dialogs Save But Box Stays Open?

Dec 13, 2013

Getting SaveAs dialogs save, but the box stays open? It's weird. For example I save a file in a folder where the same filename already exists. It asks me if I want to overwrite the existing file. I click to do so. But the box stays open. If I hit Enter again to work the Save button, I get the overwrite query all over again. Mouse click seems to work normally. But the Enter key has something weird going on.

Network / Sharing :: Sharing WiFi Connection To Another Computer Via Ethernet

Jun 16, 2013

My ISP provides service only via 802.11. I use laptop A most of the time. The captive portal for the service provider only allows one login per account at a time. The policy is intended to prevent multiple people sharing one account. It's just me, I'm the only user, but very occasionally I'd like to have a 2nd laptop access the internet simultaneously. No abuse, just the simple convenience of not having to logout from A if I need to use B for 30 seconds.

What I want to set up seems simple and it probably is:

WiFi Internet <---> Laptop A <---> ethernet cable <---> Laptop B

Such that Laptop B can share A's active WiFi connection without having to request its own unique address from the ISP.

At present, Laptop A has its network interfaces set up so:
- WiFi is connected, active, functional. Selected the "Yes turn on sharing and connect to devices" in sidebar.
- Under the wired network properties IP Version 4, I manually set addresses to be

Laptop B has only a wired network, set to

A & B can connect directly to each other, share folders, etc.

What do I need to do in order to get laptop B to transparently use A's WiFi connection? My guess is that A needs to be set up to do some routing between the internet side and the 192.168.10 subnet, and B needs to be set up to look to A as its "ISP" ... but I don't know where to begin.

Network / Sharing :: Computer Settings Does Not Match The Network Requirements

Aug 4, 2013

It was working earlier but couple of hours later when I booted up my Windows 8 laptop.. There was a red x on the network I was trying to connect to and a message saying my computer settings not matching.

I looked it up on youtube and I tried selecting "No authentication" and for encryption type I chose "None". But still didn't work.

Sometimes it would say limited first then when I try to reconnect the message above will appear.

Network / Sharing :: Computer Disappears From Local Network After Few Hours

Dec 9, 2013

I have a local network at home with 1 router, 5-6 computers and a few gadgets connected through WiFi.

I have a problem with one of the computers with Windows 8.1, let's call it Computer A. When I boot it, it is connectable from the other computers using its local IP address. But after a few hours it usually disappears from the network, and I'm only able to connect to it using the router's external IP and port forwarding.

By "disappears from the network", I mean that it's still connected to the router and to the internet, but none of the other units on the network is able to connect to it in any way.

Computer A can always connect to the the other computers on the network and to the internet.

The problem is solved if I reboot Computer A, so at the moment I have a scheduled task to reboot it every night. Unfortunately, sometimes it disappears from the local network after only a few hours after boot.

Turning the firewall off on Computer A doesn't work.

Below is the result of ipconfig /all on Computer A:

C:WINDOWSsystem32>ipconfig /allWindows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : bjarte-media2 Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :

Network / Sharing :: Cannot Disconnect Shared Computer On Network

Dec 30, 2013

Windows 8.1x64 clean install from dvd. I have a private network configured as a Workgroup consisting of a W2000 photocopy machine,XP desktop, W7 desktop and laptop and now a Windows 8.1 desktop. During the initial installation I have files on the Windows 7 desktop I need so from Windows Explorer I clicked on the Windows 7 computer to gain access to the password shared folders and their files. I entered the User and Password info and clicked the "stay connnected" as I expected to reboot several times during this computers installation.

Everything worked just great UNTIL I no longer wanted the connection to the Windows 7 computer. On XP and even Windows 7 it was trivial to Disconnect a computer that I had established a share with.

However, on Windows 8.1 I cannot figure out how to do it. How do I disconnect the share with the Windows 7 computer?

This may seem trivial but I cannot figure it out. Obviously I can disconnect from the W7 computer but that computer is shared with others as well. And then the other computers would have to re-establish their shares. And, that would just be a work around.

Network / Sharing :: How To Disable Password Access To File And Printer Sharing

Feb 6, 2013

I am in the midst of the final steps in setting my my new Win 8 system.

I have a Win XP and Win 8 computer on my home network. I believe that I have set up file and printer sharing correctly. I can access the files and printer on the XP system from the Win 8 system. However, when I attempt to access the Win 8 files from the Win XP system, I get a long delay (about a minute or two) and then it asks me for the User Name & Password. I enter them and then and it works fine.

If I try to print on the printer attached to the Win 8 system from the XP system, I get a printer error unless I have already signed in with the ID & PW when accessing files. It never asks me for an ID & PW before attempting to print.

On the Win 8 system, I have selected "Turn off password protected sharing" in the "Network and Sharing Center/Advanced Sharing Settings".

The Win XP system has previously been correctly sharing files and printers with another XP system for some time and I haven't changed any settings on the XP computer.

Both the XP and Win 8 systems are assigned the same Workgroup name.

Network / Sharing :: File Sharing With Password Protection From Windows 8

Jun 8, 2013

I would like to make a folder share from a tablet with windows 8 with password protected to a laptop of windows 7 and another of vista. I have followed the tutorial of File Sharing - "Share with" & "Stop Sharing" in Windows 8. My PCs have been set in the same workgroup and same user account, network discovery and file and printer sharing turned on. At the first time, it is OK for windows 7. However after some changes of account (delete and create them on both windows 8 and windows 7), it doesn't work anymore with the error from windows 7 "Login failure: user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" whenever password protected turned on in windows 8 and only OK when password turned off.

Apps / Software :: Open Or Save To Folders Locked Into Full Screen

Feb 25, 2014

I don't know if this is a Windows issue or just an issue with my software but I was using Corel Paint shop pro x6 and I'm not sure what I did but after opening files or using the save to option several times, all of a sudden the window started opening full screen and there doesn't seem to be any way to minimize it.

I tried to see if I could at least drag it some place but it won't move. I tried going to every side and corner to see if I could resize it that way but nothing happens. This is the only program that opens my folders in full screen so perhaps it has nothing to do with Windows but how I can get my folders to open in a small screen where you can move them over or out of the way of something you might be looking at.

Network / Sharing :: W8.1 - Can't Open Files On SMB Folder Shared By A Mac

Oct 29, 2013

I have a PC with Windows 8.1 and a Mac with Mavericks. I have a folder on the Mac that is shared with the PC. When I'm on the PC and I try to open a file that is shared by the Mac, such as an ISO file (a disk image), then I get a message saying that I cannot open the file, or the file is in use (it depends on the app/filetype). I have the same problem when I open a video file. Strangely, text files and PDF files are just fine. And if I copy any of the problematic files to the local Windows disk, then I can open them just fine.

The specific error messages are:

- AVI files opened in VLC: "Your input can't be opened. VLC is unable to open the MRL."
- ISO files opened by Windows Explorer: "Sorry, there was a problem mounting the file."

This only started happening after I upgraded to Windows 8.1 on the PC and Mavericks on the Mac. Mavericks upgraded its SMB version from SMB1 to SMB2, so perhaps that is related?

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Open Certain Webpages Unless IPV6 Disabled

Oct 1, 2013

I have three Windows PCs - 1 Windows 7 Pro laptop, a Windows 7 Home Prem PC and a Surface Pro (Win 8 Pro).

Lately (the past month or so) I have had trouble opening a couple of webpages, notably from the Win 8 Surface Pro. Sometimes it opens OK, many times it fails to open, with the spinning wheel on the tab. It times out.

The other PCs have no problem opening wikipedia whilst this problem is evident on the Win 8 Surface Pro. This problem exhibits itself whether I use my default FF browser, or if I use IE as browser - same problem.

If I use Control Panel > Network > Properties and DISABLE IPv6, then wikipedia opens fine right away.

A reboot of the Surface Pro fixes it for a while, but it returns. A reboot of the router (Linksys E4200) also seems to improve the situation, temporarily.

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Access / Open Shared Folders From Ext HD

Jan 10, 2014

I have a bunch of folders that are shared from external hard drives, connected to my new windows 8 machine.

Other computers/phones/tablets at home on the same network can access folders from the internal HD on my main computer.

But, with shared folders from external hard drives - despite showing up while accessing the network cannot be opened or read from connected devices or other computers on the network.

I'm a relative amateur when it comes to networking but I did not have this issue with my older windows 7 home computer.

Take Screenshot And Save It As File?

Sep 29, 2014

In the past whenever I would press my Win-key and PrtScr-key, it would make a copy of my desktop and automatically save it to a folder. I'm not trying to copy it to the clipboard, Win has a feature that will allow you to make a copy of the sreenshot and save it to a particular folder called Screenshot.

Anyway, I just recently upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 8.1 Pro w/Med Ctr. After which this has stopped working. I use this feature a lot.

Not sure if my image insert worked, but here's what I'm trying to get to work again. I am aware I can use the Sniping Tool, but it does not work the same.

Network / Sharing :: File And Folder Sharing?

Mar 11, 2013

On my home network there are Windows 8-A, Windows 8-B and W7 machines. There is no problem networking among these machines except from Windows 8-A to W7. The shared folders on the W7 are displayed on Windows 8-A but if I attempt to click-open any one of them no ID/PW is asked for and the following message is displayed:

"You do not have permission to access . . . . . Contact your network administrator . . . "

Windows 8-A <--> Windows 8-B OK
Windows 8-B <--> W7 OK
Windows 8-A <-- W7 OK
Windows 8-A --> W7 NG

Windows 8-B and W7 are logged in by the same ID and password, but Windows 8-A is logged in by a different ID and PW. I can open any folder of the W7 from Windows 8-A *if* Windows 8-A is logged in by the same ID and PW as for W7/Windows 8-B.

Can't Save File To C - Despite Changing Ownership And Access

Jan 14, 2014

I am currently on 8.1. I can't figure out what else I have to do, to save a config file to the root of C. It's an old application, and that's where the config needs to go.

I am worried that the medicine is worse than the illness in this problem - all the messing around with ownership might have damaged my windows installation.

Who needs to be the owner of what, on C: for me to simply save a file there?

My user is already the owner, and it's an admin user. I propagated across C: and then added System and Trusted installer with Full admin access.

Yet i STILL cannot write to C: Getting message: Error 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client.

What more do I have to do, to write to my own c: drive on my own computer.....

Network / Sharing :: How To Access Computer Remotely

Jan 29, 2014

I have an aunt who runs a business who wants to be able to let the computer run over night at her business and let me access it remotely to do the usual disk cleanup, defrag, virus scans and backups. Currently I have to go on Sundays to do all this and it is just a pain to sit there and wait for the task to complete. I did have some of these automated but some how under the computer illiterate they always get messed up.

Is there a piece of software (preferably free) that will let me access her machine to do all this? It doesn't matter if I need her on the other end to grant me permission to access the machine but I would rather do this from home during the night then do all this on a Sunday.
