Have you tried WMI filtering? I had in my organization many loopback GPOs, and they were a mess. I separated all these GPOs to 'Computer policy' and 'User policy', so the 'Computer policy' applies to the relevant computers (no problem here), and the 'User policy' applies to all users but includes a WMI filter so the policy applies only on certain computers. ...

ospy is a ProcMon ALternative. You could try troubleshooting procmon startup with that.

Never done it with screensavers but have implemented a similar type of policy with printers. GPO that targets just the specific OU with the Terminal Servers -note* we are targeting computer objects. Use loopback policy to enforce the screensaver settings on users; if configured correctly, it should apply to all users at logon.

FreeRDP-WebConnect may be an option [it appears to be a web server backend to interface with RDP behind it, with HTML5 client front end] then you could open the port through to your box [whichever one it's serving on] and hopefully access that using HTTP. Assuming websockets aren't blocked. Guacamole appears similar (you setup a service and web server on ...

I did some digging, and the solution was to manually configure either the winmgmt service as a standalone server, or set static ports. The answer as outlined by Lawrence Garvin Dec 4, 2013 1:13 PM (https://thwack.solarwinds.com/thread/60649): "Open the Registry Editor (you'll need to use REGEDT32.EXE) and navigate to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Rpc Create a ...

I use bogus credentials to really disable access. net use * /d /y net use "\\10.0.0.5\c$" "badpassword" /user:"baduser" net use * /d /y that seems to overwrite the old credentials and forces explorer to attempt to use the new bad credentials.

The issue turned out to be driver related. (DOH! I forgot to try a different driver version when uninstalling and re-installing the drivers.) The OEM drivers caused the machine to have the "no internet access" symptom, and using a driver straight from Intel resulted in the system functioning correctly. The system is a Dell M6600 with an Intel 6200 WiFi ...

Check for any user or computer log in/start up scripts that might be failing. One of those might be looking for some kind of interaction or be pausing to display some kind of error.

I found a solution to make it work. My work laptop need to be connected to a vpn with cisco any connect . And I wanted to connect to my work laptop using remote desktop to have a better experience with my home PC mouse and keyboard and a bigger screen. I had this error after the VPN was connecting: Vpn establishment capability from a remote desktop is ...

These are all guesses, but: Is there anything weird going on with the NTFS permissions in users? Is C:\Users\Default corrupted? Is the disk full? Is there something weird going on with the registry permissions in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList? Lastly, Is it your antivirus? Microsoft says, "Occasionally, ...

When connecting to a domain network, but using a local login, the "." in default domain name for logon in gpedit.msc does not change the user name to authenticate locally by default. Whenever I log off the local user to change to the local admin, I always have to type ".\" or I get a bad user name or password error. Manually entering the "computer name" in ...

Set the affinity mask. By default it is all 1's (run on any core) so you would need to set it to a value with 4 bits set for 4 cores. For example to 15 for processors 0,1,2 and 3. (0xF).

Alright, this doesn't really answer your question, but I guess it contains some decent information anyway, so I'll leave it up. Hopefully someone has a better one. Do: (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration | Where { $_.Description -match '^Red Hat.*#2' }) | Get-Member And observe the output. You will see that this instance does not ...

After hours working on this, I figured out that Registry permissions do not matter when it comes to CGI scripts, even with Everyone having Full Access IIS still blocks it. The only way a web app can access the registry is by running as a normal user, instead of as IUSR. I wrote a batch script that assigns a username/password to virtual directories, creates ...

Another command that may have implications (REF: http://www.speedguide.net/articles/windows-7-vista-2008-tweaks-2574): netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled Otherwise, I'd probably go to network monitor/wireshark at this point. You need to compare the exact same file(s) uploading/downloading to/from the same server but with different clients - the one ...

Assuming it's a .NET application, the developer likely embedded a manifest that causes the application to request elevation when run. The manifest is named application.exe.manifest and needs to define the AssemblyName as the name of the program itself, so naturally renaming the .exe file will break the manifest and cause it not to prompt. The workaround is ...

Long shot answer but something to look at... I had a Windows Server 2012 VM that would say No Internet Connection, though I could browse the web just fine. Could also ping and connect to M$ dns.msftcsi site without issue. What I found cleared the No Internet message, was re-enabling IPv6, even though we only use v4.

We had a similar issue with a couple of users with admin rights on their machines (developers) who were setting up their machines, including installing Office 2013. One connected to his home network and activated Office that way, while the other contacted me. Our small office uses a Watchguard router that includes a proxy server that requires no settings ...

Bot(s) was converting comment to CW.... Looks like is .NET Framework 4.5.1 not compatible with Powershell V4. So, I have uninstalled .NET Framework 4.5.1 & Windows Management Framework 4.0. Then I installed .NET Framework 4.5 (dotnetfx45_full_x86_x64.exe) & re-installed WMF 4.0. And rebooted the computer. This time I saw Windows Update was running ...

As you mention that the computer is joined to a domain, it is possible that there is a group policy setting a custom NCSI server instead of the default one from Microsoft. You should be able to see if there is a custom server defined by looking under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\NlaSvc\Parameters\Internet with the registry editor. ...

A different answer, probably not your case, but it's worth a shot: you said "no software firewall is enabled", so I'm assuming this include Windows Firewall too; but how did you disable it? If you by chance disabled it by actually stopping the Windows Firewall service, then you must re-enable it immediately. That's not the proper way to disable the system ...

You don't mention anything about a proxy, thus I'm assuming your network doesn't need one for Internet access; if this is the case, make sure you have no proxy configured in Internet Explorer, and also make sure you have no proxy configured for the system services; you can check this using the command netsh winhttp dump, and you can reset those settings to ...

Dealing specifically with the "No Internet Access" message, Windows uses NCSI (Network Connectivity Status Indicator) for this. This checks two things: A request for http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt - Page called ncsi.txt containing the following line of text with no terminating new line or other non-printing characters: Microsoft NCSI A request for DNS ...
