How to setup Microsoft Outlook for Exchange Server?

To setup Microsoft Outlook for use with your Microsoft Exchange Server, follow the steps outlined below (Note: Some steps may appear slightly different, depending on your Outlook or Exchange versions):

Internet Explorer can't type in text boxes

 

If you ever have a situation where Internet Explorer loads pages correctly, but you can't click on any text boxes and type into them, then it is likely one of the Windows DLL's has become de-registered.  This is likely to be caused during software installs or potentially during the regular monthly software patching process we need to do to keep the system secure.

Good news is that there is a very simple fix!!!

Open a command prompt window (Start>Run>cmd) and type the following at the
prompt

regsvr32 mshtmled.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll

You will receive a pop-up confirming as each of the DLL's are registered.  Once you have finished, just re-open Internet Explorer (IE) and everything should be back to normal.

Hope this helps,

Exchange 2007 or 2010 Activesync issues - Admin account inheritance

If you are experiencing issues with some users using Activesync for Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010, you are not alone. There appear to be plenty of potential solutions for this problem around if you search the web, but the solution to the majority of these are simply related to AD permissions.

If you open up Active Directory Users and Computers and locate one of your users that is not working, Double-Click into the account and click on the Security Tab (if this is not visible, Click on View> Advanced Features from the Menu at the top of the screen then navigate back to your user). Once on the security tab, click on the Advanced Button and make sure that the ‘Include Inheritable Permissions From This Object’s Parent’ is ticked. Click OK twice to close the user account.

How to identify RAM memory modules?

A common cause of slow performance in todays PC's is a lack of available RAM but with the lower cost of RAM today, this doesn't not need to be an issue for most users.  The price of RAM has fallen dramatically over the years and, assuming your PC is not too old, this can be a very cheap upgrade that makes some very big differences to your PC performance.

If you are looking to upgrade the RAM on your PC, first of all you need to identify what type of RAM chips are currently installed on your system. Here we are going to discuss about main type of RAMs which are being used now-a-days.

EDO RAM – Extended Data Out or EDO RAM was introduced in 1995 as a modified version of FPM RAM. EDO RAM is almost abolished and it was used on early version of Pentium based systems. It looks as follows and the width is around 108mm and comes with a single notch.

Cisco 2600 series IOS upgrade procedure

Cisco 2600 Series Routers Upgrade Procedure

  • Establish a console session to the router
  • Verify that the TFTP server has IP connectivity to the router
  • Copy the new image into the Flash memory of the 2600 Series Router through the TFTP server

Step 1: Establish a console session to the router

Even if it is possible to connect to the router through a telnet session, it is strongly recommended to be directly connected to the router using the console port. The reason is that if something goes wrong during the upgrade, it might be necessary to be physically located next to the router to power-cycle it. Moreover, the telnet connection will be lost while the router is rebooting during the upgrade procedure.

A rolled cable (usually a flat black cable) is used to connect the console port of the router to one of the COM ports of the PC.

Once the PC is connected to the console port of the router, you need to open Hyperterminal on the PC, and use the following settings:

How do I Defragment hard disks in Windows XP

The performance of your Microsoft Windows XP can deteriorate over time due to something known as Fragmentation of your hard drive.  Fragmentation means that the pieces of your programs stored on your hard disk (HDD) are split up and not in a single "chunk" on the drive.  What this means is that the heads of the drive have to move around alot in order to read the information you need off the HDD. This means that it will be slower to load your programs.  The longer you have been using your PC and the lower your drive is on space, the worse the fragementation will be. 

Microsoft has included some tools in Windows XP (and earlier versions too) to allow you to "defragement" your HDD.  This is quite a simple process, but may take a little time if you drive is large and very fragmented. 

Below is an extract from the Microsoft Knowledgebase article that describes how to use the defragementing tools in Windows XP:
