Single IP, multiple devices

Q: Single IP, multiple devices


I have an ethernet connection running from a router to another room and I wonder if I could use that single connection for multiple devices (computer, game systems, etc). Will a hub work for a connection coming from a router?
Is it possible to have them all up and running simultaneously or does it have to be one device at a time?


A: Single IP, multiple devices

If it's a standard SOHO router, and not a switch or a modem, you can have up to 253 devices attached. (There are 256 addresses available, but you can't use the first or last address, and one is reserved for the gateway--the router itself.) Note that the 253 addresses includes wireless devices.

I'm trying to set up something at work and am looking for ideas. I'm trying to get multiple Roku devices to connect to a single computer which can then take control of them all (about 10 devices per computer). I'm thinking about something simmer to PuTTY where you can just connect to the devices and they will show up on different windows and from there you can take over control. No idea if there is any hardware/software that will be able to do something like this. Does anyone have any ideas?

I am writing about printing on an HP 1410 All-In-One. The problem is this.
I have a Word 2003 .doc. I then insert a jpg from a file. I locate it in the document where I want it and size it accordingly. For example: let's say the picture is 2" x 3" on the printed page. The document appears correctly in the program and in print preview.
However, when the page is printed, the jpg is printed twice, one over top of the other. Note: they are not superimposed. However, there are two images (2" x 1.5") and the perspective is "squashed."
Any suggestions if this is a Word 2003 problem, an OS problem (Windows 2000 Pro), or a printer problem?
Thanks for your help.

A:Single JPG Prints Multiple Times in Size for Single

I don't really understand what you mean. Maybe you could scan the print and attach it? The quickest way to tell if it's the printer or print driver would be to print something similar from a different program.

I have several sets of folder trees, each with multiple sub-folders, each sub-folder containing multiple files. I would like to merge all of this into a single folder tree, retaining the same sub-folder structure and each sub-folder containing a single set of files, eliminating all of the inevitable duplicates that will arise from the merging.

Doing this manually with Windows Explorer is both tedious and time consuming. I have to select all of the files in one of the sub-folders, then drag the selection to the corresponding sub-folder in the main folder tree, choose 'move and replace' and tick 'do the same for the next x conflicts' and repeat this process for each of the many sub-folders.

Although I did an online search before posting this plea for help, I have only seen utilities that will merge all files in multiple folders into a single folder, I have not seen a utility that will do what I need.

I'm hoping that someone will know of a utility that will save me doing this manually for the next many years!

Thank you in anticipation.

I have several folder trees each containing many sub-folders, say A, B, C, D and so on. The names of the sub-folders are mostly the same between the various folder trees, although there could be an X, Y, Z in one folder tree and not in others, or only 20 sub-folders in one folder tree and 40 in another.

Each sub-folder contains many files, most of which are the same as those in other sub-folders of the same name. For example, folder A in one tree may have 50 files, 40 of which are the same as sub-folder A located in another folder tree.

What I am trying to achieve is a single 'master' folder tree containing all of the sub-folders in each of the existing folder trees, each sub-folder containing all of the files in all of the sub-folders of that name, without any sub-folders or files in each sub-folder duplicated.

I can achieve exactly this by manually moving files to the corresponding sub-folder in the 'master' folder tree, clicking 'move and replace' and ticking 'do this for the next x conflicts', but it is tedious and very time consuming.

Thank you in anticipation that someone will know how to automate this otherwise laborious process.

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my laptop.  I have a Fedora Core 7 server running SaMBa.  They share a /28 subnet (with 0, 6, and 7 taken by networking, 1 - 4 on the server, 5 on the laptop).
The server has multiple SaMBa shares (for this example, \\myserver\share1 and \\myserver\share2).  There are two SaMBA users, user1 and user2, each either their own passwords.  user1 can access \\myserver\share1 and user2 can access \\myserver\share2 .  I log on to the Vista laptop using a separate user/pass from either of those two accounts.
When I attempt to connect to these shares, I can do so without a problem if I connect to them singly using "connect using different user name".  However, if I attempt to connect to both simultaneously, I get:
"System error 1219 has occurred.
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed.  Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again."
I need to be able to connect to both shares simultaneously, but using the different credentials (I don't want user1 creating files in \\myserver\share2 and I don't want user2 creating files in \\myserver\share1).

Looks like Ghosts of DLNA devices. Start by taking offline any DLNA capable gear, reboot the Gateway and also clear its IP Table.

There are multiple websites that I cannot connect to, facebook, rottentomatoes, youtube, to name a few. Others seem perfectly fine. A few seem okay, but seem to be running slowly.

This is the case for both my computer (on which I am running Windows 7), which is connected directly to the router, *and* mobile devices which are connected wirelessly.

Our ISP recently updated their hard ware to work with the Sprint network. Note: our ISP is not Sprint, but the local phone company.

Our Hardware:
Internet: DSL 10.0 (highest speed available)
Modem: Comtrend (ISP provides)
Router: Belkin N
Computer: 10 yr old Dell running XP - service pac3 - wired connection
Kindle Fire (first edition, no HD, etc) - wireless connection
Xbox 360 - wireless connection

Xbox - went from constantly bumped from Xbox Live game by losing internet connection to not being able to enter a game at all
Kindle - went from occasional "network error' message during online tasks to having to restart download (multiple times) or refresh page for most any or all online tasks
Computer - have to click refresh to get most any page to load after the home page

What we've tried so far:
I have recently cleared the cache on both the computer and Kindle. XBox's new security measures have been met.

My questions:
Do any or all of these issues seem to be related?
Is there a piece of equipment or something we may be missing to make all of these things work? I am a networking novice.
Who should I call to get these issues corrected, my ISP or a tech service? Note: if I start with the ISP and they do not find an issue I have to pay for the call.

A:Multiple issues over multiple devices

First. You should try to NOT use a wireless connection for any type of gaming: PC, Mac, Console, etc. If you can hard wire the xbox you'll be waaay better off than using wireless.

Now... Yes, the issues could be related - there maybe an issue with the Belkin N router. I'd try to first reset the Belkin router to default settings, check on manufacturer website for instructions how, most routers you can press a "reset" button w/ a paperclip or ball point pen. Reconfigure the Belkin router, recreate the wireless network and see how everything works. If you are still having issues, humor me and connect the Dell directly to the DSL modem, bypassing Belkin router. See if you still have connection issues, if you do then it could be the DSL modem that is the problem and call your ISP to replace. If you don't have same issues then it's most likely an issue with the Belkin router. Replace it. Don't buy the dirt cheapest router at the store, but you most likely don't need the most expensive one either. Find a good middle ground router, ask sales associate to assist you accordingly.

Post back, Hope this helps!!

Hello again everyone. I'm trying to make sense of broadband download speeds. I use Speed-o-Meter for a ballcourt data download speed. I have recently transferred to an ISP who say that my line is capable of 2MB broadband bandwidth. OK so far. On an average day a single download will show an average 'speed' of around 750Kbs. I discovered that, if I set up another concurrent download - a large file, say, speeds on the meter treble, quadruple, even go off the 8MB scale.
So, can my highish spec PC with XP Home be tweaked to receive those high speeds on a single download? How does it work? I accept variability during the day due to demand etc.
Any and all information will be welcome.

Hi, i'm new here, already tried to search the site for help but can't find what i'm looking for. I have 3 computers that I have already reinstalled Xp on them. Problem is they wont validate because the disc that I used came with another computer and i'm using the product key off the computers that I was reinstalling XP on, and when I go to validate them the product keys obviously dont work because they are suppose to be used with the OS that they came with. I did not know this until it was to late. So my question is, is there a xp disc, software that I can use to put on my computers and then use the product keys that are on the case to validate. I also just bought a win7 full version, both 32 and 64 bit disc that I have put on my laptop. So could I use the Win7 disc and just buy the product keys if the the xp option doesn't work?

Welcome here.

I couldnt get you clear in your previous post.

You installed XP with the same key to 3 machines and when you went to validate, it isnt validating.You would buy a new win XP but still not willing to reinstall the XP. you are looking for a software so that you could just update the key on the already installed xp rather than installing all over again and validate. If this is what you want, give a reply, will let you know the solution.

Hi there

I'd really love a keyboard that had say 4 buttons on it --like Fn buttons that would switch output to any one of 4 machines -- such a simple idea but why nobody hasn't yet got one out on the market I can't understand it

I'm really FED up with messing around with two / 3 physical keyboards and I don't want a USB switch box on my desk.

All the keyboard would need is 4 USB outs (or 4 receivers for wireless) the active connection being made by a key press on the keyboard. In fact the only difficulty would be the right receiver for the wireless transmitter but that is easily solved by say a different colour key on the keyboard and an id (same colour) on the receiver.

I'm sure some of you testing several machines on a workbench have faced similar problems of multiple keyboards.

Any budding entrepreneurs out there --I'm sure loads of you have felt a need for this type of keyboard. Maybe there is one - but not seen at all !!.

Any engineers -- any idea how I could even consruct one --I'm quite handy with a Soldering Iron etc.

A:multiple partitions on a single hard drive

Not doable, in my experience, within the capabilities of the OS. An extended partition is just that, an extention of the primary partition. I'm not sure of this, but you may be able to save the installation on the extended partition with Acronis True Image. Or parhaps there may be possiblities using a program like Partition Magic.

I've never attempted to do such an operation, but it may be possible. I'll just leave it at that and let others comment.

I have just rebuilt my PC and decided to make the jump from Windows XP to Windows 8. The jump has not been smooth, but it looks like I have ironed out my biggest problem (incorrect installation due to not creating a system partition therefore WIN8 = no DVD, no boot; rookie error).

Now I am stuck with an issue that is a real pain - windows detects my only screen as more than one. Sometimes it thinks I have two, more often it thinks I have 3 or 4. Installing the current nVidia drivers did not help.

What I have at the moment is 2 generic non-PnP monitors and 2 generic PnP monitors detected, according to device manager. nVidia control panel calls them Dell SX2210, VGA display, (i can't recall the 3rd one, I'm on my laptop now), and TV. Windows display setup calls two of the SX2210, and the other two are either generic non-PnP or PnP monitors. In nVidia control panel it looks as though I have a clone setup (2 screens enabled) with the Dell SX2210 and the VGA display. In windows display setup it looks as though I have a clone setup (2 screens enabled) with Dell SX2210 and generic monitor.

I have repeatedly unchecked the secondary monitors in both nVidia control panel and windows display setup, leaving me with what should be a single monitor arrangement and 3 disabled monitors. This works until I restart my computer, which then reverts back to what it was before. This is OK as a workaround most of the time, but sometimes when I boot up the computer it detects the wrong s...

Hi, I have a 2014 Z840 model K7PO7UT and a 2016 Z640 model T4N72U8#ABA. The Z640 is runs almost silently and has a single fan mounted at the CPU heatsink.  The Z640 has one 6 core CPU. My Z840 has a single 8 core CPU and I do not plan on adding a second CPU.  It has the large tool-less multiple fan assembly.  The assembly is rather loud and ramps up and down in speed.   Can this Z840 assembly be swapped out for just a single fan at the CPU like in the Z640?  If so, what parts do I need to order an how are they installed?  Will the BIOS or other software need to be updated?  The Z840 fan assembly was designed for two cores. Thanks in advance for assistance, Mick

I have a great brain-teaser scenario. Something unique that I haven't been able to find any info on...

I have a SINGLE physical disk which I will be plugging into TWO different Sytems with different CPUs. My problem is that if Windows is installed while the disk is in System1, when I plug it into System2 (with different CPU brand) there are obvious hardware differences and of course I get BSOD.

My approach has been to create two partitions, one for each system. Is this the only or best approach?

Step 1 - I am able to create two different partitions on the drive, one partition has Windows install for System1, the other partition has Windows install for System2.

Step 2 - ? How can I get an automated start-up script that could detect which System the disk is plugged into (is CPU1 present or CPU2 present?) and then have it choose the correct boot partition? I have seen where there are options to manually choose it of course, but I need to create something automated.

A:How can I share a single disk between multiple systems?

Why would you want to do this? It's a disaster waiting to happen in my opinion.
Buy another disk and keep one in each computer. Much simpler and a whole lot safer.

Apparently I had unwittingly installed multiple viruses onto my Toshiba netbook yesterday and it seems to be becoming more and more difficult to fix the issue as time goes on.

At first, my Toshiba had multiple windows come up saying there was a threat (a Trojan), but I did not click anything and tried to use Task Manager to kill it, but the Toshiba was shut down prior to that, presumably by the virus. It then restarted automatically with a ThinkPoint screen. I used Task Manager to kill the program (hotfix.exe) and then started up explorer.exe. I noticed that there were multiple pw.exe's also open. On another, Mac computer, which I'm currently using now, I was trying to find how to go about removing the virus, when another program, System Tool, started to say that files were corrupted. There was also a Win 7 Antispyware 2011 program, CFSwMgr.exe, and csrss.exe. There may be more, but Task Manager gets shut down shortly after explorer.exe is started.

I tried to open Task Manager again and can't. Nor can I open any programs. System Restore was also ineffective.
Using a USB with U3, I tried to download the Malware Bytes installation from a third computer, a Fujitsu. Malware Bytes is not U3 capable (as far as I know), so we tried to simply install it from the USB to the Toshiba, but, of course, it was blocked by one my the multiple viruses. AWESOME.


A:Multiple Viruses, Impeding Solution to Any Single One

Just a clarification:

ThinkPoint causes explorer.exe to not work. When I reboot the computer, I can still use Task Manager. Once I kill ThinkPoint and start up explorer.exe, that is when all the other programs start up to raze my poor netbook.

Hi, I currently have 3 discs of recovery data to reinstall windows. Usually, during installation, the system will prompt the user to insert Disc 1, 2 or 3.Currently, my DVD RW drive is not working. Therefore, I am looking to transfer the data on the 3 DVDs to a single bootable usb (doing this on another laptop of course).Does anyone know how to go about doing this? (including software needed etc). Direct transfer without burning to windows first would be even better.
Thanks in advance.

I am not certain this will work.  I am sure you can make an ISO of each disc with Imgburn but the question is how to load the ISOs as though they were discs?  I know YUMI can make a multi-bootable flash drive but I'm still not sure it will work.  You may have to use some sort of CD/DVD emulator.
BTW, what version of Windows are you trying to reinstall?  Windows 7?  Were these discs supplied by the manufacturer?  We might be able to find another way around the problem.

I know that this is a Windows 8 forum, but I am using Windows 8 and wondered if you guys knew if there is a solution to what I am trying to do.

Is there a way that I can make a shortcut for Chrome that will open multiple URL's at once? I know how to make one that will open a single URL, but is there a way to open several? For example, can I make a shortcut on my desktop that will open, and all at once.

A:Chrome: Opening multiple URL's in a single shortcut

The new chrome I don't see a setting to open new pages in tabs. I assume it's the default behavior.

To open more than one url just leave a space between them. That's how my BrowserBunch program works.

XP and later the command tail can be up to 4095 characters long. So you can actually open quite a few.

Example target line
x:\chrome\chrome.exe site1 site2 site3 site4 site5

(I'm not typing in urls or the forum software will dereference the links)

Hi guys,

I was recently running a setup with dual monitors. This allowed me to move toolbars and menus out of the way to maximise working area when 3D modelling. Unfortunately, I've had to temporarily rever back to a single monitor.

The problem is, when I load the application and open the toolbars, they open off the screen, on the missing second monitor. I'm sure there is a quick and easy way of fixing this problem, but I can't find what it is for the life of me! I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help out.

I've run into a problem in excel that I'm not to sure how to solve. I've looked through numerous other posts about condensing data from multiple rows into columns but haven't run across a method of condensing multiple rows into a single cell on a new line.

Here is what I am trying to do.

I have a sheet with two columns which looks something like this:

ID Software
1 Software A
1 Software B
2 Software B
2 Software C
and so on... Each ID can have up to 50 Software items, what I need for a project database is for each piece of software to be in the same cell on a new line, like this:
ID Software
1 Software A
Software B
2 Software B
Software C

Where ID is one cell and the corresponding software is in another cell. I can then perform a vlookup to import this into the project database based on ID.

I was able to use code from another post to move those rows into multiple columns so that each ID has only one record, now is there an easy way to move those items all into one column?

Sub MoveRows()
vStart = 2
Do Until Range("A" & vStart).Row = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row + 1
If Range("A" & vStart).Value = Range("A" & vStart + 1).Value Then
Range("B1:G1").Copy Destination:=Cells(1, Cells(vStart, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column + 1)
Range("B" & vStart + 1 & ":G" & vStart + 1).Copy Destination:=Cells(vStart, Cells(vStart, Columns.Count).End(... Read more

I'm quite confused about the "correct" use of databases. I have some basic knowledge of SQL and databasing from a course I was attending, in which data was always stored in several smaller datatables, and for presentations purposes a table of foreign keys was built. I do not understand why is that the case. As I'm being quite vague I'll use an example.

Say I want to create a database representing a library's book collection. My simple intuitive thinking would be something along the lines of:
1 table with the following fields BookName, Author, CopiesInStock, TotalCopies

But according to what I've learned, the "correct" way would be using 3 different tables:
table with the fields BookName, BookID,
table with the fields AuthoerName, AuthorID,
table with the foreign keys BookID and AuthorID, and the fields copiesInStock, TotalCopies.

Which is better? Which is more correct? And why?


A:Solved: Single datatable Vs. Multiple datatables

The reason for creating multiple 'small' datatables is normalization. See for details.

The most interesting part of the article for you is 'Problems addressed by normalization'. There are several anomalies you can avoid if you use normal forms. And normal forms mean 'smaller', multiple datatables.

On the other hand normalization usually means lower performance, so you can denormalize as well. The details are in the same article.

So you have to choose between speed penalty and anomalies. Many table <--> one table. It's your choice.

Hi, really hope you can help me with a tricky (I assume) VLOOKUP problem in Excel 2010,I have a spreadsheet provided by a colleague which lists asset information over a number of similar sheets. Each sheet is a room and the sheet lists up to 60 assets along with associated asset data. Each row is a unique entity/asset across the whole spreadsheet. On all these sheets the unique identifier is in Row A and I need to return the value in row W (asset life).I have added a MySheets sheet which lists the sheet names.I have added a master sheet which lists all entities (taken from another asset list) but has older data (which I need to update). I've added a blank column G next to the existing data that I want to compare. For each of the 7000 rows in the Master sheet I need to search for the same unique item in column B throughout all the other sheets (column A). I then need to return the value in column W from whatever sheet it is on into column G of the correct asset in the Master Sheeet. Sorry for the long winded explanation, hopefully it makes some sort of sense. I've tried various versions of VLOOKUP and INDEX (found after google searches) but can't work out the correct syntax. With luck one of you much cleverer individuals may be kind enough to assist.Many thanks in advance.message edited by GaryG

Hi guys,

I'm in the middle of migrating users from 1 exchange 2003 server to another. (We need more space, its an old server)

Issue is that I have to keep some accounts on the original box for now, so i need to be using both box's at once. Mostly this isn't an issue since migrating the mailboxes is fine, accessing them on the new exchange from outlook is fine...

where my problem lies is that some of our users use OWA (outlook web access) and they cannot access this yet from the new server.
I use ISA 2004 to control all traffic on my servers and obviously have all the certificates in place and routing setup to route users entering to our OWA (on original server)
I am failing however to be able to setup so that users who have had their mailboxes moved to new server can access it via OWA while the rule in still in place pointing users to our original exchange server.

I thought about adding a DNS record to do this e.g.
but is there anyway to just use the 1 domain for both OWA sites? and not have to give users a new domain to use when trying to access their mail externally? especially since once all users are moved over, we will be using the original domain for accessing the new server anyway.

any help would be appreciated and if you have any questions that need answered to better understand the situation please feel free to ask.

I know Microsoft stated, especially for XP that everything should be on 1 partition. XP would arrange the data, what was less used was put on the end of the drive (or almost) what was frequently used on the beginning of the drive.

In my opinion everyone (who wants to) should have 3-4 partitions, if the drive(s) are big enough, or if you have a raid solution you probably have even more space at hand.

Here is what i would do (and do). My old Dell Pentium lll, 600 mhz has only 1x15k Scsi drive of 18 gb. So the O.S. (Win2000 Pro) is on a partition of 8,5 GB. The second partition is used for stuff not for daily use but also for Office 2003.

However with the large disks available now ( a few hundred GB), i would suggest to use at least 3 partitions, i use 4 on the main computer.

So why this thread?

Personally i use the C: partition for the O.S. like everybody does.
then comes the O: partition with office 2007 on it for Word, Excel, Access documents.
Then there is the J: partition for the jokes and video stuff i receive daily from some friends. I save everything so right now 8,5 gb.
Finally the R: partition for the music and other stuff like downloads only used for installs like Dreamscene or whatever is downloaded. Once installed you hardly reuse this again

The benefit of having the OS on a stand alone partition (nothing else on it) is:

when crashing and the OS needs to be reinstalled, the Office documents, the foto's, video's etc will still be on the disk. If you put... Read more

Hi there

Is there any way to link directories on several DIFFERENT HDD's to the SAME top directory / library.

Trying a Multi-media server with video files on HDD1, HDD2, HDD3.

What I want is to say create a top level directory videos, then under that directories video1, video2 and video3,so my application which says Multi-media folder -- I could point to directory videos -- then I'd get the 3 folders as part of the top level directory.

(Using Spanned disks can work but I'd rather not go down that route these days as the 3 disks I want to use are EXTERNAL HDD's and spanned disks need ALL the drives to be available and if there's any error you lose THE LOT. !!! )

With Linux it's easy -- just create 4 directories in your /home folder say /mnt/videos as top level, then in this directory create 3 sub directories /mnt/videos1, /mnt/videos2, mnt/videos 3

then mount the devices /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdb2, /devsdb3 in /mnt/videos1, mnt/videos2, mnt/videos3

then browsing your home directory with mnt/videos you'll see all the data files in the 3 directories from all 3 HDD's -- no matter what their size, -- you only need a FEW BYTES too in your home directory !!. You don't actually copy or move any data from the HDD's to these directories. Things like search are great too since you point the search at the top level directory and the system will scan all the sub directories (so all 3 disks) too.

In order to make things easier, we want to be able to create a USB pendrive that contains all of the operating systems we want to use and some form of menu to start the installation of each. The problem is, I've not been able to find guides that explain how to do exactly what we want. The operating systems that would be going on this are:

Windows XP Home OEM
Windows XP Pro OEM
Windows Vista Home Premium OEM (32-bit)
Windows Vista Business (32-bit)
Windows Vista Ultimate (32-bit)
Windows Vista Ultimate (64-bit)
Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit)
Windows 7 Professional (32-bit)
Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)
Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit)
Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)
Ubuntu 9.10 (32-bit)
Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit)

We have the CD/DVDs for all of these, but we don't like wasting consumables by writing multiple CDs (and of course they get scratched easily) and they fill up a lot of space when they're in those CD wallet things. Plus, my experience with installing from USB drives has been quite positive and seemed to go much faster than installing from CDs and DVDs.

Now, there are a lot there, but we have drives big enough. I know that I could use WAIK if I was only going to put Vista and 7 but as far as I am aware I can't use that with XP and I wouldn't even think that there was a remote chance of installi... Read more

I have twenty-four pages in Microsoft Word 2000 format, each page a separate file. These pages have text boxes with text, text boxes with photos, some horizontal and some vertical pictures.

They were all created by my father-in-law (85 years young and doing well to do what he has done) who doesn't understand how to create a miltipage document for his Eighth Airforce Historical Society newsletter.

Now I must stitch these pages together into a single MSWord 2000 file so I can print 225 copies of this 24-page document in my duplexing printer (prints front and back in one operation).

Does anyone know how to join these? I'm under the gun on this and have to get his chestnuts out of the fire within two days or his newsletter will be late.

Is it possible to have a Vista media centre PC with multiple users?

For example is it possible to have the media centre set-up in your front room and have a monitor / keyboard in a separate room and have multiple users e.g. someone watching the media centre in front room while someone working in a study with a remoate monitor / keyboard - all from the same media centre box?

I have looked at some of the linksys / falcon etc... wireless media extenders but they only seem to extend movies / pictures / TV to another room and not the functionality of the PC through use of keyboard / monitor.

This is my first post. I installed windows 8 last night, not knowing all that much about it and realize its going to take a bit of getting used to. I'm upgrading (actually built a new computer, so its actually a fresh install) from a win 7 box that my wife and I share. We typically use a single user account, with auto login-- basically no or minimal security. She checks her email and facebook in a browser, and I'll do the same. I'm trying to figure out what's best for us with windows 8.

I want be able to try out and use the new interface and live tiles, but I suspect that given that we have different personal accounts for email, social networking, and such- it probably makes sense for us to have two separate windows accounts-- in fact, I'm curious if there is a way to have two sets of email/calendar live tiles on a single login account. Is this the case?

If I decide to use two separate accounts for win 8, instead of a single account, is there a way to make it easy to switch between users without needing to enter a password? (I suppose the answer will depend on whether the accounts are password protected to begin with; right now, I've got my account setup as a windows account w/ password).


A:Home computer: single account or multiple accounts?

I've been setting up 2 separate accounts for the past 2 weeks and I am nearly finished. The problem is I had to set up 2 new accounts on Outlook so as to be able to login and administer both and for each of us to login separately. The problem occurred when trying to separate emails for each other. I have had to login all our accounts on the web such as Amazon ebay etc, and give them each separate and new email addresses. Make no mistake this has to be done as in the future things will get very complicated having one email address for two people. Now it's finally done no probs.....

"How to Create a System Image in Windows 8 and 8.1" at System Image - Create in Windows 8

includes the following approach for create multiple system images on a single external drive. Will this approach work in Windows 10?

1. Navigate to the backup location above for where you saved a system image that you want to keep before creating a new system image.

2. Right click, or press and hold, on the WindowsImageBackup folder, and click/tap on Rename.

3. Rename it to something like WindowsImageBackup-Copy-1, press Enter, and click//tap on Yes if prompted by UAC.
NOTE: This way you can just easily change the 1 an the end of the name to 2, 3, 4, etc... for each new system image that you make a copy of.

4. You now have a different system image version that you can leave at this location to be able to keep multiple versions.
NOTE: When you want to restore a system image in a renamed WindowsImageBackup-Copy-1 folder in the future, then you must rename the current WindowsImageBackup folder first, then rename the WindowsImageBackup-Copy-1 folder back to WindowsImageBackup in order to be able to restore it. The WindowsImageBackup folder must be in the root directory of the drive, and not within another folder.

We use Peoplesoft within a browser.  We had some software upgrades including an upgrade to IE 9.  When I open multiple tabs within a single browser instance, I used to manage unique activities in each tab.  Say I open an "Items"
menu in one tab and a "Requisition" menu in another tab, then do work or investigation within the Items tab.  If I start to work within the Requisition tab, in less than a minute the content of the Requisition tab will clear and I get the message
"THIS PAGE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE."  And "To continue, return to your most recent active page or select one of the navigation icons in the header above." 

Whatever I saw in the Items tab now is duplicated in the Requisitions tab after the error message is displayed.  All work in the Requisitions screen is replaced by a duplicate of the previous tab.
No back button is used at any time.
Our I.T. says it's Peoplesoft and Peoplesoft says it's the browser.  I have a feeling there is a setting within IE 9 that can be tweaked to turn off this bleeding between tabs.  It didn't bleed between tabs in the previous version of IE. 
Any inspiration? Suggestions?

I am currently running 10 computers attached via wired network to a server running xp pro at my business. From home, I have set up remote desktop so that I can log in to my server and operate the software I need to from home, using the server as another workstation.
I am looking at uprgrading a few other computers to XP pro, (yeah) or sadly Vista Business (boo) which will allow connections to those computers too. I know about port forwarding, because I had to with the server that is connecting to the Web by a D-Link router. I want to make my salesmens computers which will have remoted desktop host enabled on them to be available from their offsite computers. I've searched the web, and found a few diff. ideas on this, but would like your opinions on this one that I found. My questions is, can the connections from offsite be performed concurrently.
"Well, you could make it a whole lot easier on yourself and just setup port forwarding on your work router like this:
external port -> internal IP -> local port

4889 -> -> 3889
5889 -> -> 3889
In this case, you now have one pass-thru and two redirected ports. This means you don't need to modify anything on each host, only the network configuration changes.

I use w10 on 3 devices, a mid range gaming PC, linx7 tablet, and lumia640. On the whole the experience is pretty good, syncing works well, reminders, alarms, contacts etc. This was one of the reasons I opted for android early, using chrome on a PC gave a similar, yet skimmed down, one OS feel.
I've not had one BSOD since updating the 'rig', my mobile works great, and the tablet is amazing for ?49!

I am led to believe it is a soundcard problem, i use an onboard sound card with the VIA VT1612A 2-channel audio Codec and i look in multimedia properties under audio devices, i had two different ones, Audio for via Ac'97 Enhanced Audio Controller(WDM), and Audio for Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM), i was told by a friend to uninstall the drivers and then reinstall to fix this, i did, now on top of those two devices i have a second Audio for Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM). I also have three MIDI for WDM-based Device. ANd Mixer for VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller (WDM), along with two Mixer for Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM),this may be normal, but like i said i'm relatively new at this and it doesn't really look normal, so can someone please help me? Thank You

A:need help, multiple audio devices

Look at the back of your computer. Do you have onboard sound AND a seperate PCI sound card? If so then you need to disable the onboard sound in the BIOS setup and use only the PCI sound card.

Now go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall ALL VIA AC97, AC97, Vinyl audio drivers and anything else that looks like it goes to sound drivers.

Then go to Device Manager and uninstall/remove all remaining VIA/Vinyl/AC97 devices listed under the Multimedia heading. Reboot only after all are removed.

Then download the latest VIA Vinyl drivers. When you first run the new driver setup program it will look to see if there are still drivers installed, if it finds any then it give you the option to uninstall them. Do that and reboot.

Then run the VIA installation again and install the drivers, and reboot.

At any point Windows may redetect the sound card and want to reinstall the drivers - let it. Do NOT click Cancel on the Found New Hardware Wizard. If all goes well prior to install the latest driver the sound card should be detected as a PCI Multimedia Device and that means all the drivers will have been removed.

Here's the latest drivers:
They are in a ZIP file, once extracted you need to run the SETUP.EXE file to install the drivers.

Is there any way I can get output to both the headsets?

A:using multiple sound devices

as far as i know you cannot output to two audio devices at the same time from one program unless the program alows this (eg. PCDJ)

To solve the problem you could get a 3.5mm spliter and another set of 3.5mm headphones but this would probably require a trip to an electronics shop unless you have one already.

also post what OS you are running in case someone else knows of another way.
