I know this might be kind of late for some of you but I just had to perform an upgrade to our SQL server as our last vendor now supports SQL 2005. But I ended up with a problem. When upgrading I got an error (-1). What the hell it that? It was totally non-descript.… Read More »
Here is a good fix. I recently upgraded to the UM175 WWAN device from Verizon but there was a problem.
After I activated the UM175 I would get an error:
A connection to the remote computer could not be established. You might need to change the network settings for this connection. For further assistance, click more info or search help and support center for this error.
***Now, I did not get an error code but after some research I discovered that many other people were getting error codes! Most of the computers with the errors were Dell and Lenovo machines.
I called support and they were no help at all, they told me that it is s problem with WinXP and deal with it myself.

Wow, I had one user yesterday having a problem with word 07. Every time she closed Word it would crash. The build-in diag tools didn’t find a problem.

Now apparently there are other issues noted by Microsoft in KB article 930056, but this didn't solve my problem. Here's what did though..
All of our computers after an upgrade from TM7 to TM9 were crashing and I had to call support. I hate that! Well after working with them for three days we discovered it was because of bad data in three database tables.
I had several machines not checking into a new WSUS server. After some digging I discovered that after cloning machines from the same image that a registry key was preventing the machines from joining the WSUS server. You see, they all had the same SusClientID key and would compete for the connection to the server.
I decided to check the size of some of my logs on specific servers. Well, as it turns out there were 4GB of logs! I needed a script that would delete the files after so many days. I was really lazy and looked up the recursion portion (MS Scripting Guys)! You can point this script anywhere and it will delete any files older then the days you specify.
