In reply to: hvac resulted in zero hits. I wonder what you did to evoke a new and never reported error message.

Let me start with this. If you do want to get great help in these forums, always pay close attention to those error messages. Put them in "quotes" so they stand out.

I haven't had any issue with said modem/router, so I can't say that is the issue here. Also, I rarely use the Microsoft remote assistance since I consider it to be a security risk. Instead we use TightVNC when its called for.

Best of luck with your new and yet sighted errors.

answer to the reply The other computer that I did the remote with got into my laptop with no problem at all and when I tryed to get back to his desk top that is when veery thing went wrong. the first Msg. was "remote host could not resolve please try again"
then I received an other Msg."win32 nor responding and will shut down" I own a company and I need to use the remote between all of the computers at first I had a mix between Home an Pro. and have changed them to the pro. ver. and have had the same problem all the time.I feel that the problem might be in the router set up or software this is no made up story as I do not play around and trying to run my bussiness. I hope that some might help and by the way when I received the Msg. that the computer was shuting down the lap top locked up Why?. In order to get the exact msg. I will have to one of the other ask me for a remote that is when this all happens

That points to a name resolution issue. It is not a router or Microsoft issue. Your IT staff needs to define how a name to IP address name gets resolved.

There is not enough information in your post for me to hazard a guess why the name didn't get resolved.

For testing, try a command window (hint: start, run, cmd) and try PINGing the computer by name. You can also help your IT staff with the NSLOOKUP command since it will help determine what DNS needs the entries for the target machine.

Best of luck in resolving your first issue.

-> Next that shutdown issue. That reeks of some virus/spyware/trojan or just damaged OS issue. Sorry, but there is not enough detail for me to guess otherwise.

Sik the IT people on that one.

In closing, TightVNC could be easier to setup and use. Try that. And it doesn't require the Pro version.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
