I put my vb6 exe program on flash drives of my students. Some of them say that it does not open. (Others have no problem and can left click). I told them to right click and "Run As Administrator". My program then opens. They are using school computers in a computer lab with windows 7. What is interesting is that #1 They are not administrators, #2 They do not have to enter any password. My question is: if that is the case, then why must they right click and Run As Aministrator? More important to me , is how can …

My motherboard got fried after an update to Windows 8.1 I don't know how, it did. Before I send the laptop off for repair, I want to backup my drives. I've removed the HDD and am reading it through an exertnal HDD reader to my Win 7 laptop. Now, I can't get access to the user files, which don't have user access. I can't change the user access as recommended by http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/203795en and other similar sites, because the users are all greyed out. Even if I go to Folder>Properties>Security>Advanced> all of these tabs: Perissions, Auditing, Owner and Effective Permissions all …

Hi all, I have spent a long time on this problem and trawled all the forums. Much of the discussion is old. I have two Windows 8 computers, set up for file sharing, but the process is not exactly even, perhaps becuase the desktop is a private computer and the laptop is a work one, or more likely because there is something wrong with the permissions on the desktop. That would be easy to tease out if someone knew about it. I have looked at all the links, and tried numerous solutions, though. On the laptop, I can open the …

So after using system restore to restore to an earlier point that I hadn't seen before (Sept when only Oct was showing earlier), it rebooted asking me to log in--except there were no accounts to login with! The only account I had was the Administrator account, and it was setup to auto-login. :( Any ideas how to restore this? I researched this a ton a few months ago, but now I can't remember what the various solutions were. Any experience and expertise welcome.

I’m in my second year of Computer Systems Technology – Networking course and I’m thinking of trying to find a job as a student to try to get more into my field and gain real world experience. I never had a job yet and never worked in an IT environment. I’m just looking for tips on what to put on my resume, and also what are some jobs that a student in his second can do?

I have a WindowsService named, say, BST. And I need to give a non-Administrator user, UserA, the permissions to Start/Stop this particular service. My service runs on a variety of Windows OS, starting from Windows Server 2003 to Windows 7. How can I do this? I Googled and found some stuff about giving permissions using the command [sc sdset], but I am not exactly sure about the parameters. I do not want to set the permissions for a group, but ONLY to a particular user, UserA in this case.

Hi guys, I want to begin working on a project as stated in the title. I want to create an application that will be usable by any network/systems administrator to monitor the network/systems he administers. I need some opinions from you.

Hello All- I'm in the process of getting started a complete website for guidance and discussion about a new type of banking/lending. I would like to offer my fellow investors or potential investors greater access to slice and dice the data of one of the key companies involved in this area. They don't currently offer what I'd like to offer to users. However, one of their competitors; SNIP does have the exact concept I'd like to develop just for their competitor with different data and available data to work with. The system works like this. Peer lending is person-to-person lending. …

Hi everyone I'm a student on an IT university and I'm also working on a website project - playing the roles of the developer, designer and administrator the same time. When I avoid the my laptops screen I go to gym, do some sightseeing and partying with friends, or - most likely - spend a little time with my girl. Any questions are welcome except the ones that I don't like >)
