I want to join a domain on microsoft windows XP professional but I need someone to tell me a domain I can join on my computer


Hello Steve, go to a pc which is already connected to domain. Right click on my computer icon of the pc and select properties. You will see it there. Or else type echo %LOGONSERVER%. This is the easiest way for you now. Or else you can search internet for your answer. Good Luck. Hope your system administrator returns soon if all fails :)

How to improve Windows XP performance in 6 short steps?


Though the computers of today are strong enough to handle and run Windows XP, with all the visual enhancements enabled, some old computers, or systems with low amount of physical memory and/or a "weak" graphic cards could (and would) run more smoothly with those "cosmetic visual enhancements" disabled.

The default setting is to let Windows choose what's best for your computer, but in 90% of the time, "helping" it a little will surely improve your computer performance!

To disable those visual enhancements, all you have to do is follow the following 6 short steps:
  1. Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties.
  2. Go to Advanced tab.
  3. Click Settings, under Performance section.
  4. Choose Adjust for best performance.
  5. If you would like to keep the "Windows XP Style" (as oppose to "Windows Classic" = Windows 98/Windows 2000 style), you will need to re-tick the 2 last options (Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop and Use visual styles on Windows and buttons). This will keep the nice graphical interface and will preserve Windows XP "fancy look".
  6. Click OK on Performance Options window, then click OK once again, to close System Properties.
  • You can always turn the visual enhancements on by repeating steps 1-4 and choosing Let Windows choose what's best for my computer.
  • To make ALL visual enhancements on, choose Adjust for best appearance instead.
Note: Changes take effect immediately, no reboot required.


Another side-issue regarding visual styles is the wallpaper, or Desktop Background.
Having no background (a solid color. Select None in the background's settings under Desktop tab in Display Properties) will demand less resources from the computer and increase response time when showing the Desktop. On the other hand, having a large-size (both in scale and in file size) photo will need more resources (especially memory) to rescale and view/reload it, every time the Desktop is shown.

Thank you for the last one. know i want to set up mu 3laptops on the windows server 2008 r2 standered and use the server as a domain and the laptops as well like a domain.


first you need to setup the roles in the server, go to the manage server console, ( can be found as a shortcut in the taskbar or under start menu ) then open the console and go to add roles.

1 - add active directory

2 - in the process it will ask you to install the DNS server role ( do it )

3 - after installing the role in the CMD command prompt type DCPROMO

4 - the DC controller installation and setup will beging ( do not do anything during this proccess )

5 - when asked by DC setup to choose what type of domain functionality level do the following

1 - windows 2003 ( this is for compatibility for windows server running 2003 and XP machines )

2 - Windows Server 2008 ( at this point nothing lower than XP can be added to the DC of course domain functionalities will increase - Only other 2008 server domain controller can be added and cluster migration from server 2003 to 2008 is not supported. )

3 - Windows Server 2008 R2 ( at this point only machines running Vista and 7 can be added to domain - windows xp is no longer supported. All the functionalities of the domain controller are available)

keep in mind once you promote the domain controller to a higher level it can't be brouht to a lower level.

once active directory is installed restart you server and the you should be able to add the clients pc or laptos to the DC example

- right click over my computer icon
- click on properties
- computer name
- change the computer from workgroup to domain
- type your FQDN ( fully qualified domain name) example: mynetwork.local or mysite.com
- apply changes and restart
- your computer will be part of the domain next time system boots up.

How to install the textwist?


Right click on the game icon, select properties and select the compatibility tab. From there check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). It might be good to also check "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition" Hope it helps.
