I need to restore my computer without disc, what should I write in command prompt?


To access the System Restore Gui from command prompt you will need to type in rstrui.exe
OR
%Windir%\System32\rstrui.exe

Other Thoughts
--------------
If you are experiencing Boot issues you will need to install a boot manager. If your system is missing a file or a file is broken, you may need to replace that file with a working version that's compatible with your OS Version.

How to Unblock Facebook at School
Open the Command Prompt on your computer at home (Windows). You can start the Command Prompt from the Start menu. You may not be able to access the command prompt from school, so try this at home first.
  • You can also start the Command Prompt by pressing ? Win+R and typing cmd into the box.
Open Terminal on your computer at home (Mac). You can find the Terminal program by opening the "Applications" folder and then opening the "Utilities" folder.
  • You may also be able to access the Utilities folder from the Go menu.
Type .ping facebook.com and press ? Enter. This works in both the Command Prompt and Terminal. Your system will make a connection to the Facebook website and return the results.
Make note of the IP address. Once the Ping command has run, you will see a series of numbers next to facebook.com in the results. The IP address is four groups of up to three numbers each. Write this number down, including the periods, and take it to school.
Enter the IP address into the browser address bar at school. Press ? Enter to visit the site. Some older blocking systems only block the name and not the IP address, so you may be able to access the site this way.
  • IP Addresses change on occasion, so you may need to repeat these steps after a while.

OR: METHOD 2

Method 2 of 4: Using a Proxy Site

1. Find a list of proxy sites on your computer at home. A proxy is a server that you connect to that allows you to get "outside" of your network. A proxy is also useful because all the work is being done through the browser, so the method works regardless of your computer's operating system.
  • There are several websites that list proxies that you can use. Proxy.org is a great place to start that is constantly updating its
2. Make a list of 10-15 sites to take to school. There's a good chance that proxy listing sites like Proxy.org will be blocked by the school network. Visit the proxy listing sites at home and make a list of 10-15 proxy sites to try at school. list.

3. Try the first site on your list on your school computer. If the site is blocked, try the next one.
  • Proxies that are overused get noticed and blocked, so vary which ones you use on a day-to-day basis.
  • Schools update their proxy site list very often, so chances are that most of your selections will be blocked already. Try to have a large list of proxy sites to try.
4. Select the URL box on the proxy site. Enter "facebook.com" or any other website you wish to visit. Since proxy sites reinterpret the data of website you are trying to access, there's a chance that the site won't load correctly. Most commonly, videos will not load. If this is the case, try again with a different proxy site.
  • Using a proxy site will make browsing significantly slower. This is because the traffic is rerouted through the proxy, reinterpreted and then sent to your location. Be aware that videos and websites may take longer to load, or may not load at all.

Method 3 of 4: Using Your Phone as a Wireless Hotspot

1. Check that your phone can make a hotspot. You will need a smartphone with tethering enabled through the carrier. Many plans in the US allow tethering automatically, though some require paying for the feature to be enabled.
  • Using your phone as the network connection will bypass any restrictions placed on the school network.
2. Open the Settings app on your iPhone or Android.
3. Open the Portable Hotspot/Tethering section. If you can't open this section, then your plan does not support tethering.
  • Android - Tap "More" in the "Wireless & Networks" section. Tap "Tethering & portable hotspot".
  • iOS - Tap "Personal Hotspot".
4. Turn on your phone's hotspot. This will allow you to use it as an access point for a new network.
  • Android - Check the "Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot" box.
  • iOS - Toggle the "Personal Hotspot" toggle on.
5. Get the wireless password for your new network.
  • Android - Tap "Set up Wi-Fi hotspot". Check the "Show password" box.
  • iOS - Tap "Wi-Fi Password".
6. Connect to the hotspot on the computer. Click the computer's wireless network icon and select your mobile phone from the list of available networks. Enter the password from your phone to connect to the network.
7. Connect your phone to the computer via USB if it doesn't have wireless. After connecting your phone with tethering enabled to the computer via USB cable, you should be able to select it by clicking on the network icon in your system tray (Windows) or menubar (OS X).

8.Visit the Facebook website on the computer. Now that your computer is connected to your personal network, you should be able to visit any site without restriction (as long as your personal data plan does not have any restrictions in place).

Cant remember password for lap top how do I use command prompt to open laptop without password


magooster857,
You cannot use a command prompt to find the password of your computer.If you made a recovery disk from within Windows you can boot to it to recover your password. You will need to purchase software online to recover your password or reinstall Windows.

Thank You,

Hello there,

What particular error does it give you? Try to use other browsers like using IE instead of Firefox and vice versa. Also, try clearing your internet cache files and renew your ip address. Open a command prompt and type there: ipconfig /renew

Please let me know if this helps so I can assist you further. THank you for using FIxYa.

Good day, pls. help me, how can i install network ip address for konica 7035. thanks alot


Using arp command (Windows 95/98/NT/2000)
From Windows 95/98 MS-DOS prompt or at Windows NT/2000 command prompt, you can use the arp
command to assign the IP address to the network interface card. It is necessary that TCP/IP is set up
correctly on the computer that will execute the arp command. Perform the following procedure:
1. At Windows 95/98, select [MS-DOS prompt] from the [Start] menu. At Windows NT/2000, select
[Command prompt] from the [Start] menu.
2. Execute the arp command. For example, if the MAC address of the network interface card is
00:11:22:33:44:55 and the IP address to assign is 192.168.0.128, then input as shown below,
and then press [Enter].
(Example: C:\>arp -s 192.168.0.128 00-11-22-33-44-55
3. Execute the ping command for the assigned IP address. In this case no response is returned
from the network interface card.
(Example: C:\>ping 192.168.0.128
4. Turn off the main power supply to the print controller and the main body printer, then turn it
back on.
Chapter 2 Setting Up the Network Interface Card
2-4 Konica Network Interface Card INSTRUCTION MANUAL
A Status Page will be output. Check that the IP address is correctly set in the list. Or, when about 5
minutes have passed after having restarted the print controller and the main body printer using the
ping command, check that the network interface card responds correctly. The ping command is also
executed at Windows 95/98 MS-DOS prompt or Windows NT/2000 Command prompt. The example
of executing the ping command is shown below:
(Example: C:\>ping 192.168.0.128

HOW DO I BLOCK AN IP?...IM GETING HACKED, IT WONT STOP


The easiest means to block IP addresses in Windows XP is to use Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) filtering rules. The primary reason to block IP addresses is to protect your computer from network-based threats, such as computer worms, viruses and other malware. To block IP addresses in Windows XP, you will need to activate and configure IPSeccmd, the firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP. IPSeccmd does not come preinstalled with XP on your computer. It can be found on Disk 2 of your service pack upgrade or downloaded from Microsoft directly.



  1. Install IPSeccmd from your Window's XP Service Pack 2 installation disk.
  2. Step 2 Open the Command Prompt on your computer by selecting "Start > Run" from the primary file menu and type the word "cmd" in the blank text field that appears.
  3. Step 3 Enter the following command at the DOS command prompt to block a specific communication type (UDP or TCP) and port number on your computer:
    "IPSeccmd.exe -f [*=0:PortNumber:Protocol]
  4. Step 4 Open the user interface for IPSeccmd on your desktop, and select the "General" tab under the "Policy" section. Choose the "IP Block" option and enter the specific IP address of the host(s) that you desire to block. Exit the application when complete.
