WSUS Cleanup Script in Powershell

By | December 13, 2011

The only change would be to line 7 where you need to type in your “SERVERNAME.DOMAIN.DOMAINSUFFUX” Then you can run it as a scheduled… Read More »

Start Automatic Services That Have Stopped

By | October 29, 2010

I hate it when I reboot a server or when we had a wind storm the other day it kept knocking out power and out UPS kept wanting to shut down the server gracefully. When they came back up 2-3 services didn’t restart(yes auto restart was enabled). So this script will run as a scheduled… Read More »

Windows Startup Locations

VZAccess Manager Error

By | June 30, 2009

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.
