Problem:    Can not finish a Full Managed Backup with Ghost 14

After running a Full Managed Backup.
I get following error on Norton Ghost 14.0. 4.30.30167:

Error EC8F17B7: Cannot create recovery points for job: Drive Backup of (C:\) MASTER2007. Error E7D1001F: Unable to write to file. Error EBAB03F1: The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.
Details: 0xE7D1001F
Source: Norton Ghost

This error is consistent when writing to the external USB Rosewill R2-JBOD USB 2.0 DUAL-BAY 1.5GB box.

I get this error only when I send the file to a 1.5TB Seagate ST315003 41AS USB devise.
Another USB devise 250GB Seagate ST325082 4A USB devise does not have this problem.

I read everything you had online about this problem, but nothing helped or explained the problem. Actually I believe wrote that Symantec could not reproduce the problem.

So therefore I will attempt to...

We are trying to deploy the Altiris Software Virtualization to start using svs packages. Users that have the SVS agent without any SV layers installed have no problems on bootup. It is when we deploy a SV layer to them Users begin having local profile corruption issues. We beleive it has something to do with the Cisco Clean access agent. The only information in the event logs is that the system can not load the users profile because it is in use by another. Our company deals with the government and the users are lockdown quite a bit. EyeBlink Professional, Pointsec Protector, Mcaffee and a host of login policies.  Anybody out have an issue like this. Altiris support is stumpped.

Recently, there was a NSE file generated that was huge (> 20MB) By default, a Notification Server will not process that NSE file. It will get automatically discarded, as the default configuration does not provide a mechanism for processing those XML files that are larger than 20 MB.

Well, provided you have the horsepower to do it, you can process those files and include that data into your Notification Server. More than likely this data might be a custom inventory or a huge software inventory.

CAUTION:

Making this change should be considered to be a temporary setting, as it can consume a large amount of memory. Please make sure that you also perform these changes at a slow processing time for you Notification Server, when there are few background processes running.

You will simply need to edit a registry key on...

Smart UAC is a clever program developed by Security Stronghold company which automatically replaces UAC (User Account Control) from Windows Vista with a much more powerful and intellectual one.

Unlike standard UAC, Smart UAC Replacement will not disturb you with numerous alerts of the good programs you use everyday over and over again. Smart UAC remembers your choice for a given program and will allow or deny it automatically unless you haven't changed your mind or unless the program's executable has changed.

The second great thing about Smart UAC is that it has a large and regularly updated database of more than 400,000 known threats including viruses, trojans, spyware, adware, keyloggers, privacy breakers and even rootkits. Smart UAC will scan each run program and automatically determine in milliseconds if it is known malicious program...

This is something different thean what you think. I was working on a package for which I want to hide the Add\Remove Program entry but when I look into the following registry hive for systemcomponent entry it was not there:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{ProductCode}

Now what to do? I thought, I will make an entry at this hive with my product code, then I will create a Registry Key As follows:

SystemComponent=1 

And it works! If you face the same type of issue it may be useful for you.

When you right-click on a file it shows the verbs associated with the program, giving you the choice to print, edit, etc. It also shows you any Shell Extensions installed by your program. Funcionally, shell extensions behave similarly to file extensions but they have a special interface that programmers use to change what happens to explorer when you right-click. You must have seen that when you right-click on an exe file, the winzip menu has some extra items for self-extracting archives.

This article on codeproject.com explains it all rather well with an example dll to download.

The example there shows adding an extension to the txtfile progid so you see an extra menu item on txt files. There are no pictures of the registry so I thought I'd make...
