Reincarnation of Phobos

I have been setting up the reincarnation of Phobos as a W2k3 server.

Install went ok.
Couldn't RDP to it for a while there, then checked the System Properties and enabled RDP Access :D
Set up the printer.
Set up an _template user with fields with %username% not %user% makes it nice when creating new users :)
Created folders for shares.


Linksys Wireless Routers

Loss of Pass Phrase

When you enter a passphrase into the wireless setup it generates a WEP key from it, it then seems to lose all trace of the passphrase, leaving you with only the WEP key . This has caused problems for connecting people twice now as the passphrase does not seem to work anymore, you have to use the WEP key.

Seems a bit pointless to have the passphrase in the first place, but there you go.


How to add other person's mailbox to your Outlook profile?

4. Type the name of the Mailbox owner in Add Mailbox.
5. Click OK twice.

In Outlook 2002 or 2003:


Send large attachments via Email

Sending large files to other people on the Internet is a problem. If you send something bigger than 3Mb to someone with dial up or 20Mb on broadband you can end up locking up the recipients Inbox for an extended time and they may even think their computer has crashed. It can lock your machine up while you send it, and lastly increase the size of your and their mailbox dramatically ending up with problems such as corrupt mailstorage in Outlook and Quota Limits being hit and no more email being received in the recipents mailbox.

There is a solution however, called that allows you to send attachments up to 1000Mb by sending it through their service which hosts it temporarily on a website for 7 days and simply sends a link to the recipients email address.


Typical day in the life of RunPCRun vs Spyware

Customer: I seem to have lots of rubbish installed on my screen when I go to internet home page such as smiley stuff and cursor stuff I think that it is slowing down my computer and I'm also concerned that it may be spyware or something??? I have tried to get rid of them but can't seem to be able to.
Any ideas?

RunPCRun: They are a really difficult to remove sometimes.
You can run something like "Ad-aware" which could do it all automatically. Ad-aware is an automatic spyware cleaner, it'll find this rubbish and then ask you if it should remove it, make sure you tick it all and please realise it can't always do everything. If this doesn't work or you'd just like us to take care of it. RunPCRun can remove spyware manually too.
