I've just been looking around for ages to figure this out, so felt compelled to write about it.
I have several Windows 7 machines, all able to remote desktop to each other no problems.
I added two Windows XP machines to the network, and could not remote desktop to them.
Went through all the troubleshooting, and realised they have Windows Firewall enabled on them. So I went in and ticked the box in the Exceptions. This still did not work.
I shortly discovered I could connect if I used their IP addresses, but not if I used their machine names.
I later discovered that if I turned off the firewall completely, the connection worked no issues.
The answer lies in the Exceptions entry for File and Print Sharing. You don't have to tick this box entirely if you do not want to, but there are two ports in there that need to be openfor Windows to locate the machine by its NetBios name: 137 and 139.
I realised this when I read the below KB article:
It shows that those ports are used by the local machines NetBios name service. So you will have to open up more than just port 3389 in the firewall if you want to connect by machine name.
I have exported a link to my desktop of one of our databases that is stored in a server. This link does not seem to be working. To open that database, I have to open the Access database program first, locate the file then open it from there.
Is there a way I can fix this? I have other database links on my desktop and they all work, except this one.
I need to create a shortcut on my Win7 desktop for a often-used URL but my default browser is Firefox and this URL does not run well on FF, so I need the shortcut to launch it in Chrome or IE8. Can't seem to figure out how to do that.
Been running Win 7 Pro 64-bit fine for several months; al of a sudden, many folder icons on the desktop now have the addition of little padlocks. What does it mean? What did Ido? What am I missing? And, if I move the "padlocked" folder to another desktop folder, the padlocks disappear!
Why is the estimation byte size different than the actual size backup?

Just recently (in the last couple of weeks) any file I save to the desktop does not show up visibly until I hit F5 to refresh the screen. It is a bit annoying when I am researching something and saving a lot of pictures or PDFs and leave before I hit F5.
I use RDC but I need to keep the remote pc desktop screen on not logged out so the other user can still use a program.
Is this possible it connects flawlessly the other person still needs to work on particular program so login screen is preventing this.
As you can see in the attached picture there is a blue color background on the name of the desktop shortcuts. How to remove this.)
In win 7 is there a way to make the font of the desktop clock in the lower right corner larger and bolder?

All 3 computers are designated Workgroup.
I just noticed that on my computer if I open Network and Sharing Centre and click Homegroup in the left pane, and then click "Leave the Homegroup" I am told I cannot. How can I leave Homegroup?
All 3 computers can see the shared folders on the other 2, but my friend's laptop and desktop cannot open the shared folders on my desktop. The access denied etc. message comes up. How can I resolve this problem?

What are the difference between windows local admin and a domain admin. Are the users from a admin group have the same privilege as the admin.
Finally was able to get a Win 7 box to start checking compatibility and other issues of programs we use on a day-to-day basis. Most of our programs don't seem to have many issues as far as those that I have run on this box.
I installed MS Office 2003 Sp3 and everything there seems to work. Outlook even seems to work mostly except when I try to setup an Exchange Server (2003) mail account. I keep getting the message "There was an error locating one of the items needed to complete this operation.
It might have been deleted". This is what I get when I just put in the server name and username then click the "check name" box.
If I type in the full server & domain name and the full user name and click next or more settings options I get "The account you have added is not fully configured. It might notwork properly until re-configured correctly."
And I can only hit cancel from here, it won't let me proceed any further.
I have checked the event logs for any errors and warnings and found these:
Application Event Log - Warning
Security policies were propagated with warning. 0x534 : No mapping between account names and security IDs was done....
Does anyone know of a way to map a drive for any user that logs in to Windows 7, including a newly created user? the mapping is going to a file server that is not a domain and not using active directory.
I need to write a script that will add the system to the domain and also change the system name as per naming convention. Could you please tell me a suitable guide to learn scripting in windows.
I have a website now want to set a domain name for it and make my pc a web server how can I do this.
