IP Address conflict when resuming from sleep

Some of our portable users experienced IP Address conflict when resuming their machines from sleep mode.

An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN (local area network) or the Internet have been assigned the same IP address. IP conflicts usually render either one or both of computers unusable for network operations.

To avoid this situation you can extend the lease for the Scope or use a DHCP reservations.

If above suggested is not acceptible for you, there is also another way to fix DHCP address conflicts by creating a simple batch file that will renew IP address automatically in the case of IP conflict.

Windows Update Standalone Installer 0x80004005 - Remote Server Installation Tools for Windows 8 x64

From the time when Windows 8 became available on Technet and MSDN I am using it. Since I have the need for RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) during my first installation everything went fine but after I have reinstalled Windows 8, applied patches I wasn't able to install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8 anymore.

I presume that some of the hotfixes, pathces or updates could be the culprit for this behaviour.

When I tried to run the Remote Server Installation Tools for Windows 8 x64 (Windows6.2-KB2693643-x64) package I have received the following error message:

Windows Update Standalone Installer
Installer encountered and error: 0x80004005

How to change Search Provider in Internet Explorer

I could not believe that changing default Search Provider in Internet Explorer 10, probably in couple of versions below too, was complicated, but it surely is, of course, if you are located outside of United States.

I have clicked on the Tools icon in Internet Explorer 10 and selected 'Manage Add-ons'. In the left pane I have choosed 'Search Providers' ad since only Search provider was 'Bing' I have clicked on the link 'Find more search providers' in the bottom of the 'Manage Add-ons' window.

I was redirected to the Internet Explorer Gallery in my native/local language where I have browsed all of the listed Add-ons and also used the Search box trying to find the 'Google Search Provider Add-on' but without luck.

If you are systems administrator and you are using separate administrative accounts for Admin access to domain servers you have probably run into this issue.

If you access the server resource / share with your domain account, the share will open, but you are not able to browse folders on that share because you need and Administrative permission for that.

Therefore you try to access the share by using Admin share like \\Servername\D$ and once you enter your Admin credentials you will receive the following error message:

You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the adminsitrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
