Hi, When I ping the domain controller from a client machine, it only pings by typing the ip address but does not ping while resloving the domain controller name.
Also, when I do an 'nslookup' i get a response saying ' Can't find server name for address '.'.'.' What do you suppose the problem is? I think this is why I can't apply policies to the workstations.
Please advise. best Regards!Rob

I just visited http://www.sysinternals.com and was greatly saddened to learn that they have been bought out by Microsoft. Whilst this is undoubtedly extremely good news for Microsoft, Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell, it is very sad news for the end users because: 1. Mark and Bryce have been lost as independent voices, willing to speak the truth, even if it hurts Microsoft's reputation or bottom line.
2. You can be sure the SysInternals tools will soon disappear and development will beco.... read more

I have a notebook PC that I use in a port replicator, in a docking station, and undocked. My desktop icons seem to have different position settings for each of these hardware profiles. I would like to be able to put the icon in one place and have it stay there no matter where I dock Any ideas?

The same applies to temporary audio or graphic files which are generatedduring the downloading of various music or movie clips etc. When these.... read more

My name and address keeps filling in forms and questionaires, such as my city for all of the cities in Orbitz, or my name and address for all of my new contacts that I am trying to add to my address list. How do I change this so that this information does not continue to pop into all the fields?

How many fonts can I load into Windows XP and still have it run okay? Just got a new computer with XP, had ME before and could only keep about 600-700 installed at any one time. I do word processing in several languages, and need fonts for various alphabets other than English.
