Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including:

using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.

My netbook has a 1GB RAM. everytime i open it, it takes time to load and more often, a notice saying "Not Responding" appears. How can I make it load files/programs faster?


There are several options possible.
Easiest would be to use some optimizing software package (glary utilities or advanced systemcare - both freeware) to clean registry, drives,... If the netbook has dual core cpu (like atom), use core optimizers like CPU control-freeware or Ashampoo Core tuner (shareware).
Last, but not least, using n-lite create your custom windows installation (exclude services which are not needed,etc. there are a lot of manuals regarding customization of windows) which will most certain offer the best solution.

Pick via unknown @ intel 82801gb ich7 - high definition audio controller [a-1] pci to your hard drive how can i get a driver for this


Go to your Mainboard manufacturers' site, and download

1. The mainboard chipset, then install to your PC.
2. The audio/drivers drivers and Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio. Sometimes the (UAA) is incorporated with Sound drivers itself.

Installing high definition audio Drivers for windows.
**Take Note.
If the audio/sound drivers and Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) are separate files, you have to install the UAA files first before the installing audio/sound drivers files or your sound drivers will not be install properly.

You have not mention what OS or what type of mainboard, brand, name... you are using.

Hope it helps.

Hitachi hard disk model no. Dk23ba-20 crached. it isnot working. is theire any way to make it workable.


It depends on your definition of "crashed" -- if it still spins and works, but the copy of Windows stored on the disk no longer successfully boots into Windows, that's one type of "crash",
and you can recover (by reinstalling Windows).

If it does not spin, or nothing can be read from the disk, that's another type of "crash",
and it's usually a "fatal" problem -- the hardware will never work again.

However, there exist professional "data recovery" services, that can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to _once_ read your files and copy them to a new disk-drive.
Example: http://www.seagate.com has "no-charge-if-we-cannot-recover-your-files".

To protect your computer and maintain network functionality, re-enable this service if you are using any of these programs.


Windows XP Service Pack 2
If you are running Windows XP with Service Pack 2 and are using the Windows Firewall, the operating system will alert you when the SharedAccess service is stopped, by displaying an alert balloon saying that your Firewall status is unknown. Perform the following steps to ensure that the Windows Firewall is re-enabled:
  1. Click Start > Control Panel.

  2. Double-click the Security Center.

  3. Ensure that the Firewall security essential is marked ON.

    Note: If the Firewall security essential is marked on, your Windows Firewall is on and you do not need to continue with these steps.

    If the Firewall security essential is not marked on, click the "Recommendations" button.

  4. Under "Recommendations," click Enable Now. A window appears telling you that the Windows Firewall was successfully turned on.

  5. Click Close, and then click OK.

  6. Close the Security Center.

    Then click OK.

  3. Do one of the following:

7. Go to the folder where the files have been extracted and browse to the \HDAQFE\xpsp2\us\ folder or the \MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\ folder. (The name of this folder depends on your desktop board model.)
8. Double-click the file kb888111xpsp2.exe to install the High Definition Audio Driver Package.
9. Restart Windows.
10. Install the audio driver.
