net share ipc$ command corruption

by Ariey2k / November 25, 2004 7:52 PM PST

My home network consists of desktop+notebook both with Windows 2000 Pro. My AV is Panda. On booting my desktop I get a message from Panda that it disinfected a file b.bat, which I cannot locate in either computers. When it first occured, I noticed that I lost the printer server feature from the desktop to which my printer is connected. Some searches and trial and error brought me to a way around it and the resumption of my printer server services. Now, immediately after boot, I enter at the DOS prompt the command c:> Net Share IPC$ <Enter> and all WORKS fine until, of course, the next boot. I know, it is just a minor nuisance but it is one nevertheless. Can anyone explain this mystery or offer an end all corrective measure? My approach was purely deductive imperical.

Bob, many thanks. I am away from home and thus from my network so it will take a few days to research the suggestions in your link. However, I should point out that I am not prompted to enter IPC$ I just found out in reading somewhere about this command. At the end of my boot of the Desktop, I go, unprompted, to the DOS window and enter the command. The response is that the command is accepted.

I do logon to windows with username and password and the network is functioning okay. The only feature that appears not to work until this command is manually enterd is the printer services across the network. Still, I will do a thorough check on my home coming. Thanks again for your prompt response.

Your method would do an endrun around the normal IPC$ prompt. However the issue and solution is the same.

In short, the supplied article is all about accounts and the ms client protocol.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
