Windows 10 – Update 2004 – Issues with Chrome whereby you go and launch the application in windows and the browser does not open.  What does happen though is you can see the process running in task mgr.  This happens for previously deployed workstations and new machines which are run up.  You can click several times on the chrome icon before it will open a window which is reflected by the number of chrome processes running.

There are several articles out there which all talk about removing chrome, reg entries and the profile itself.  None of those make a difference the symptoms still persist.  I have almost narrowed it down to say that it has been caused by the cumulative updates applied to Win10 Build 2004.

 

One interesting thing I found which is off the back of an article is if you rename the exe to chrome1 it works flawlessly every time.  Change it back to Chrome and the same symptoms persist

Fix 1)

Remove 09 Cumulative update (KB4571756) this also fixes the problem.

After finding that I was able to come up with the following https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/70587649?hl=en

Fix 2)

  • Kill all instances of Chrome
  • Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application or C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application
  • Right click chrome.exe > Properties
  • Change settings for all users
  • Set Compatibility mode to Windows 8

Recently found an application that couldn’t have files dragged and dropped into it on some computers. It would display the following cursor

The trouble was mismatching Program DPI’s ( Between Explorer and the App )  Turning the App down to disable scaling fixed this

Recently I was trying to use Item Level targeting on some group polices using just NOT statements ( so it should apply to anything that isn’t NOT ) 

NOT UserA OR NOT User3

However it was not working , Turns out your statement cannot be all NOT’s it has to have a IS in it as well

So it needs to look something like

User IS in Domain Users and NOT UserA or NOT User3

When users try and use the Mimecast for Outlook Add-in they login and get Application Disabled

  1. Make sure this is ticked
  2. Restart Outlook then try again
  3. Sometimes Mimecast caches Authentication Profiles locally in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Mimecast\msw.s3db , Delete this file with Outlook closed and try again

Recently a user found that an email with an Attachment when Files into iManage/Worksite did not show the “Attachment” icon . e.g the below email actually had an attachment

More research shows that anything filed using the “ThinClient” , which is users Dragging and Dropping emails into iManage using Desksite instead of using the the EMM Toolbar

Has this problem. The workaround is to use Outlook to File Items instead of Desksite

 A user whos laptop was joined to Azure AD was suddenly not being able to connect to Teams due to caa70004 error and Onedrive was bringing up 0x8004de40. WebApp worked fine , password had not been reset.

Rejoining the PC Azure AD didn’t resolve , and that Windows Profile could not join to any other Microsoft Account. Signing into the PC with a Local Username and password it could open and sign into Microsoft Apps

Our organization whitelists the 2fa prompt on trusted IP’s , so we changed the machine to connect to a non trusted IP 4g Hot Spot , which allowed the user to enter in the 2fa code and re-sign the Authentication Token

Do they use Auto-Mapped mailboxes?

 Had this issue with a number of staff here directly after migration from 2010 to 2016

Fix:

$mailboxes = Get-MailboxPermission -Identity * -User <username> | Select -ExpandProperty Identity

Foreach($mailbox in $mailboxes){Remove-MailboxPermission -Identity $mailbox -user <username> -AccessRights fullaccess -Confirm:$False}

Foreach($mailbox in $mailboxes){Add-MailboxPermission -Identity $mailbox -User <username> -AccessRights fullaccess -AutoMapping $false -Confirm:$False}

Wait a few mins then see if the user can open Outlook.

I have been using this plugin to https://wordpress.org/plugins/pastacode/

highlight some of my programming. I write a bit in Powershell however this is not a supported markup. This is what to add to your functions file of your theme to add another library

/** pastcode plugin */
add_filter( 'pastacode_langs', '_pastacode_langs' );
function _pastacode_langs( $langs ) {
	$langs['powershell'] = 'Powershell';
	return $langs;
}

add_filter( 'pastacode_tinymcevars', '_pastacode_tinymcevars' );
function _pastacode_tinymcevars( $pvars ) {
	$pvars['scripts']['powershell']=get_template_directory_uri().'/js/powershell.js';
	$array=array(
			'libs'      => array('powershell'),
			'mode'      => 'application/x-powershell',
			);

	$pvars['language_mode']['powershell']=$array;
	return $pvars;
}

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mytheme_scripts');

function mytheme_scripts() {
  wp_dequeue_script( 'prismjs' );
  wp_deregister_script( 'prismjs' );
  wp_enqueue_script( 'prismjs',  get_template_directory_uri().'/js/prism.js', false,PASTACODE_VERSION, true );
} 

 

You will also need to create a js folder and upload the new .js library from https://codemirror.net/mode/ and prism.js

Vmware KB:

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/67686

The PSOD is because of a race between reset and data path. There are two issues here:

Tx queue xmit and completion path ran into a race

The above race caused queue stuck and uplink reset, which ran into the PSOD.

Identified thanks to these legends in the vmware reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/vmware/comments/dan3k3/pf_exception_14_in_world_2481950vmnic00tx_ip/

 

Fixed in later driver release:

Bug Fixes:

———-

– Fixed intermittent TX hang due to race condition between start and stop of TX queue.

– Fixed duplicate nic reset due to race condition between uplink reset and watchdog threads.
