I lost my cd for my d link wireless router and i am unable to set up my new computers


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to enable the hidden Administrator account in Windows 7 and Windows Vista


Unlike Windows XP the administrator account is disabled by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Many people prefer to have the amin account open just in case they forget their main account password or to alocate admin rights over another user account like your childrens for example.

In the tip I am going to tell you how to enable the admistrator account so it is visible on the Welcome Screen.

These step only apply to Windows 7 and Windows Vista accounts that have admin rights, they won't work on an account which is limited or which is a guest account.


1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Click on All Programs.
3. Click on Accessories.
4. Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. An Adminstarator Command prompt window will open.
5. In the command window type "net user adminstrator /active:yes" or "net user adminstrator active:yes"(with out the quotation marks)
6. to disable the admin account type in the command window "net user adminstrator /active:no" or "net user adminstrator active:no" (without the quotation marks)
7. Close the command window.
8. Log out of your account.

When you have logged out of your account you will see the Administrator account on the Welcome Screen.
If you don't see the admin account straight away all you have to do is restart your computer.

That should be it.

How do i enable ntfs compression in vista x64


You don't want to compress your drive... it's really not recommended. And you can't de-compress it once compressed.

I will suggest buying a new drive; Harddrives are rather cheap, and cloning utilities will make the transfer of your data eazy peazy.

Unable to enable ntfs compression


There are a number of reasons for compression to be disabled, but check these two things:
The cluster size for that volume:
Compression is not supported on cluster sizes greater than 4KB
By default NTFS cluster size for Windows Server 2003 never exceeds 4KB

This one is less suspect, but another registry entry that MUST exist
for 'Disk Cleanup' compression to take place:
HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerVolumeCachesCompress Old Files

Other thoughts:
The command line "compact" utility can be used to disable compression for a folder and, optionally, it's subs. This might be a suspect if it were invoked at any time on that volume.

PLEASE READ:
Before you invoke compression on a volume it's best to read this "Best Practices" article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/251186/EN-US/. Compression can have a detrimental effect on performance if used improperly.

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.
