When I try to apply the updates, the updater app stops with a "Access Denied" error, showing the path to the file with...

In my Inetpub\wwwroot directory's subdirectories, I am trying to lock a web app so that I must use Windows Authentication and log in as myself to access a locally hosted web site. For some strange reason, I cannot enter the Advanced security settings so that I can disable inherited security and remove the permissions granted to everyone. Is there some reason why the Advanced button is...

"C:\Documents and Settings" after upgrade? by Jan Wagner
Hi, more a "nice to know" question he After doing an upgrade from XP SP2 to Vista RTM, it seems what was previously "C:\Documents and Settings" is now C:\Users, but the folder "C:\Documents and Settings" is still there. Running cmd.exe as Administrator or normal user, "dir "C:\Documents and Settings"" just says File Not Found. NTFS messed up? Or is Documents and Settings still used by...

"dir" shows different results in cmd vs. 4NT by Keith S.
I'm sure there's some simple explanation for this, but I'm currently stumped. If I open a command prompt (cmd.exe) and type "dir c:\windows\system32" in my Vista Ultimate x64 install, it shows that I have roughly 2300 files there. However, if I open a 4NT window (an alternate command shell by JPSoft Inc.) -- whether it's as myself or when choosing "Run as administrator" -- and type the same...

It was easy in XP - I could click on the "Edit" button and choose "change scope" button and do the job. But not in Vista. There is no "Edit" button. "File and printer sharing" firewall exception...

"Force shutdown from a remote system" by
What do they really mean by this? I was able to shut down a server with no users having this user right, using terminal services. I took everyone out of this user right, and I refreshed the policy then connected to the server via terminal services, and proceeded to shut it down, no problem. What kind of tool does this policy expect the remote user is going to be using to accomplish the...

"Logon Failure" when running executables on NAS by Lynn Henderson
I have a Linux-based NAS running Samba with user-level password protection (the same userid and password as Vista). I can browse files, etc., but I am unable to run any executable files. UAC prompts me for approval, but then give me a "Login failu unknown username or bad password" error. It must be a UAC issue because I have no problems when I turn UAC off, but I'd like to leave it...
