HOW TO REINSTALL MICROSOFT EDGE

Reinstalling Microsoft Edge is difficult but I will try to describe how to do it.  First of all, understand
that Microsoft Edge normally exists as a "package" which is essentially a folder with a set of files which must be installed to properly install Microsoft Edge.  Do the following:
To be sure a package exists on your machine:
1) Scroll down Start menu and find "Windows Powershell" and click to open
2) RIGHT Click "Windows Powershell" displayed under "Windows Powershell", and hover on "More>"
3) Click "Run as Administrator"
4) enter the command "Get-AppxPackage -allusers | more"
   This should generate LOTS of output.  Hit the space bar to go through it page by page.
   Look for an entry which references Microsoft Edge like the one below.  Type "q" to exit
   the scrolling list.
Name                   : Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge
Publisher              : CN=Microsoft Corporation, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US
Architecture           : Neutral
ResourceId             :
Version                : 38.14393.0.0
PackageFullName        : Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_38.14393.0.0_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe
InstallLocation        : C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe
IsFramework            : False
PackageFamilyName      : Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe
PublisherId            : 8wekyb3d8bbwe
PackageUserInformation : {S-1-5-21-652432458-1574307298-3343364176-1002 [rjohn_000]: Installed}
IsResourcePackage      : False
IsBundle               : False
IsDevelopmentMode      : False
Go to the directory listed to the right of "InstallLocation:" above.  Usually this will be something 
like C:\Windows\SystemsApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe but not always.  This
directory SHOULD contain everything you need to install Microsoft Edge BUT it could be corrupted. 
More specifically,  it MUST have a file named "AppxManifest.xml" and this file must be correct and
contain in XML format  all of the directions necessary for the Edge package to load correctly.  If this
file is missing or bad, you will need to fetch a healthy copy of the Microsoft Edge package.  First, back
up your machine by creating a restore point.  Delete the contents of this directory (you may have to change security specifications and ownership on this directory to do this) and then fetch it 
again via the command:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers -name Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge
and then add the package via the command:
C:\WINDOWS\System32> Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
All on one line where the directory string in this command is the directory string you found to the
right of"InstallLocation:" above.
Note that you can get and install ALL packages via the command:
Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
all on one line but I don't recommend it. If AppXManifest.xml is missing or corrupted for any
package then the whole thing comes to a complete stop.  It is also overkill and takes more time. 
Not Good.  After doing this restart your machine.  Hope this works for you.  Let me know what happens.  Good luck.  --Rob Johnson

unable to copy and paste from remote desktop.

I had a peculiar issue with copying and pasting files from my local computer to a Remote Desktop session. I could copy and paste locally, but the option to paste would be grayed out on the Remote Desktop computer. There are several ways to solve this problem depending on what you are trying to copy and paste.

Client Settings

  1. Right-click on the RDP icon that you use to connect, then select “Edit“.
  2. Select the “Local Resources” tab.
  3. Check the “Clipboard” option. To allow file copying and pasting, select “More…” and proceed to step 4. If you just need the ability to copy and paste text and not files, stop here and click “OK“.
    RDP Clipboard option and More button
  4. Select the “Drives” option. Click “OK“, then “OK” again.
    RDP Drives option

Server Settings

First ensure that the Redirection settings are what you want them to be on the server.

Windows 2008

  1. Launch “Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration” from the server.
  2. Under “Connections“, right-click the connection and select “Properties“.
  3. Select the “Client Settings” tab, and make sure the “Clipboard” box is unchecked. If  you want to allow copying and pasting of files, make sure the Drive selection is unchecked. Click OK when done.
    Server Side RDP Settings
I should also note that if you have all of these settings configured correctly and things still don’t work, you may need to restart the server or just kill the rdpclip process.

Windows 2012

  1. Open “Server Manager“.
  2. Select “Remote Desktop” Services.
  3. Select “Collections“.
  4. Select “Tasks“, then choose “Edit Properties“.
  5. Under the “Client Settings” tab, ensure the “Clipboard” and “Drive” is enabled.
This should be all you need to enable copying and pasting of files to your Remote Desktop session. I hope this tutorial has helped you. Please share your experience in the Comments section below.

Windows Update - code 80244019

When I check for my windows update I get the message: "Windows Could not Search for new updates -- code 80244019 windows update encountered an unknown error"

I have searched online and it appears as if I should do this:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
change the value of the key
“UseWUServer”=dword:00000001 to “UseWUServer”=dword:00000000
Reboot the Windows Vista PC and that should fix the problem.
I cannot get to that path in the regedit as I dont have the WindowsUpdate\AU folders.

What should I do to proceed so my windows update works?

pen drive not showing full space

fter writing the FreeNAS IMG to a 16 GB USB flash drive, I can now only use 938 MB. I used the Win32 Disk Imager tool to write the IMG to the device. Then later, when I inserted the the USB drive into my Windows 7 computer it said that it had to be formatted, because it couldn't read it. I believe this is normal. So I formatted it inside Windows using the format option when prompted. So in Windows Explorer now, 938 MB is reported as capacity of this device.
a
Also, when i check the properties dialog box I can see the same numbers.
b
And when I check with diskmgmt.msc I can see there are several volumes I don't recognize and unallocated space of 12.79 GB.
c
Now, I have another 2 GB USB flash drive with the same problem. It too was used for FreeNAS, and it too has a reported capacity of only 938 MB. I thought it was broken there for a while, until I saw the same problem with this 16 GB model.
I tried using diskpart on the 2 GB model, and I saw that there were several partitions there (list partitions) just like on this one. So I used the clean option to try to wipe it, but that wiped off everything so it's totally useless now. I'm not sure how to rebuild it.
Is this a standard routine, like part of the whole "user experience", that whenever you make a bootable USB falsh drive with FreeNAS, it messes up your device? I am new to FreeNAS, so i wouldn't know. But it sure looks like it. Maybe it is in fact the format operation in Windows that messes things up... I don't know. It's not very nice.

These files can’t be opened. Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened.

these files cannot be opened.
I came across this today while trying to run an unsigned, potentially harmful executable. There are plenty of recommendations out there on the web on how to fix this, but I found the fastest solution to be as follows.
Open internet explorer and select internet options:
internet_explorer_settings
internet_explorer_settings
Next select the security tab then restricted sites:
internet_explorer_settings_security+restricted_sites
internet_explorer_settings_security+restricted_sites
Now Select custom level and in the new window scroll down and enable “launching applications and unsafe files(not secure)”:
internet_explorer_settings+security_settings-restricted-sites-zone
internet_explorer_settings+security_settings-restricted-sites-zone
Select ok and agree to the warning:
internet_explorer_settings+warning!
internet_explorer_settings+warning!
Now try to run your executable. If this still does not work try using the above steps on the internet, local intranet, and trusted sites zones:
internet_explorer_settings+main_menu
internet_explorer_settings+main_menu

No synchronization icons for files and folderes in OneDrive for business

or the situation, do you mind trying the steps below and give us the result?
Given the situation, do you mind trying to clean the cache to check if the issue lies in the OneDrive for Business cache?
1. Stop Sync All Folders.
a) Right click the “OneDrive for Business” Icon in you task bar.
b) Click “Stop Syncing a folder”, to let a popup window appear which lists all the document libraries.
c) “Stop syncing” all the libraries. After that, none of the document libraries will be listed in the popup window.
2. Backup all the local documents & files in your document libraries to another place.
3. After the backup work is done, remove the original documents & files in your local OneDrive for Business folder.
4. Cache clearing for OneDrive for Business.
1) Right click on the Windows status bar, select Start Task Manager, and get a list of running processes by clicking the “Processes” tab.
2) Verify that none of the following processes are running:
groove.exe
msosync.exe
msouc.exe
winword.exe
excel.exe
powerpnt.exe
3) Close all the application you are running in you system.
4) If any of the above processes are running, stop the process by right-clicking it and selecting End Process.
5) Give yourself an administrator role as follows:
Click the start button and type cmd in the search bar. When cmd.exe appears in the results, right-click it and select Run as Administrator.
6) At the command prompt, delete the Office file cache and Spw folders by issuing four commands as follows:
 Type “cd %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\” and then press the Enter key.
 Type “rmdir OfficeFileCache /s” and then press the Enter key.
 Type “cd %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\” and then press the Enter key.
 Type “rmdir Spw /s” and then press the Enter key.
7) If you get an error when executing either rmdir command, one of the .exe processes is probably still running. Correct the problem by returning to the Task Manager (step 2), stopping the processes, and then removing the directories as described previously.
Thanks for your time.
Thanks,
Lawliet Xu
