I get a message saying that windows has detected another computer on this network. I have another computer could be this one

I get the message windows has detected another computer on this network.i have another computer could be this one and is it a problem?



1 have you added the other computer on the network?

2 have you made changes on the computer before this problem?

3. When do you have this error code or error message?

The computer has detected in the network may be the other that you have, you will need to check the network and check the name of the computer. I would suggest trying the following methods and check if it helps.

Method 1:
You can get a new IP address from your computer. You will need to do if you encounter connection problems.

a. Click Start. Type cmd in the search box and press ENTER.

b. at the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER:
ipconfig/all (there is a space between ipconfig and /)
The command ipconfig/all command displays for all your network adapters, TCP/IP in Windows settings.

c. enough at the command prompt ipconfig and press ENTER. This frees up your current IP address.

d. ipconfig / renew in command prompt and press ENTER.

The DHCP configuration for all adapters is renewed. To renew the IP address for a
specific adapter, type the name of the map that appears when you type ipconfig at the command prompt.


Method 2:
If the problem persists and you have not Windows Vista Service Pack installed
then you can refer to the link below and check if you use the fix passes solve you the problem.


Hope the information is useful.

    original title: Itunes and DEP

    While downloading Itunes on my laptop right before you start to install, I get a message saying that windows Explorer stops because the prevention of execution of data has stopped installation.  Is there any solution for this?  I'd like to install itunes on my laptop.

    Hi Steve681229,

    Thank you for using the Microsoft Answers forum.  Here's what worked for someone else.  Thanks Kevin

    Hi thrivenformore,

    Please use the forum for Support of Vista,

    You could try to add iTunes to the DEP exception list.  However, this behavior is not normal.  Go to the support forum of Apple for iTunes for Windows, search on DEP.  There should be a thread "How can I turn off DEP for iTunes?" or it Prevet planting iTunes? "which provide troubleshooting steps you might want to try before adding it to the list of exceptions."

    How to add the program to the DEP exception list:

    1. Press Start, right click on computer and select Properties.
    2. in the window that appears, click Advanced (on the left panel) system settings.
    3. in the first box that says Performance, click on the settings button.
    4. in the window that opens, click the Data Execution Prevention tab at the top.
    5. There should be a box of exceptions in the middle of this window. Click the Add button and navigate to the C: drive, then Program Files, then the iTunes folder, and then choose the iTunes exe.
    6. Add the exception, and then click OK in the window of the DEP.

    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral

    Here's what I use and recommend: (these are all free and very effective versions.)

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
    launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
    reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leave the file system, Web,.
    Operational network (Script and behavior are also recommended in Ver 6 +).

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
    right of IE)

    Avast - home - free - 7.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
    Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
    Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
    Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
    disabled - click OK

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
    programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
    or use Google to see how to remove.

    Choice of PCmag editor - Prevx-
    http://www.PCMag.com/Article2/0, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
    would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
    (not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
    never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and boot into Safe Mode.

    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem. To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore. Click on the box that says show more restore points.


    You can check the corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type CMD in the search box, right-click on CMD. EXE and click run as administrator. Then, from the command prompt type sfc/scannow.


    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log. To do that click on start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools. Once in Event Viewer system log-click and scroll entries looking for these "error" with indicator see if you can find guidance on where the problem may be.


    When you get your system in good working condition, I invite you to back up your system up to an external hard drive and make it regular periodic updates.

  • When I go to rip a cd I get message saying that windows is not able to accomplish this task.

    When I go to rip a message from windows cd is that it is not able to accomplish this task. also when I go to change where I whant recorded music it is empty and I'm not able to open to choose where to save it. Windows Media will play music, but that's all

    Hello from the McCanns,

    Thank you for the question!

    I'm sorry to know that have problems you with the ripping. As I understand it impossible to rip a disc and get a message that unable to accomplish this task.

    I need to ask you some questions to help you best.

    Method 1:- You may be able to complete the rip by turning on error correction.

    In Windows Media Player -> click Tools-> Options -> peripheral, click the CD burner, choose > Advanced and set the error correction on it.

    Method 2:- There are two ways to change the rip while settings in the Player library. You can insert a CD into your CD-ROM drive and clickRip settings, or you can click on the Rip music tab in theOptions dialog box. The music tab Rip in the Options dialog box offers additional options that are not available in the Rip settings menu.

    To extract music from a CD, follow these steps:

    a: For best results, make sure that you are connected to the Internet before you begin.

    When your computer is connected to the Internet, the Player attempts to retrieve information from press about the tracks being ripped from an online database. The player then adds the information to the files during extraction.

    Note that you can rip a CD when your computer is not connected to the Internet. However, the player will not be able to identify the name of the CD, the artist who created it, or the names of the songs until you go online.

    b: insert an audio CD into the CD drive.

    c: (Optional) If you want to select another format (for example, MP3 instead of WMA) or bit rate (for example, 192 Kbps instead of 128 Kbps) for files created during extraction, in the Player library, click the Rip settings menu and then click on Format or the quality of the Audio.

    d: (Optional) If you do not want to extract from each song, in the Player library, clear the check boxes next to the songs you don't want to extract.

    e: Click the current playback orRip CD CD Rip button in the library of the player to begin extraction.

    For more information, visit the following link: -.


    Meet us if you encounter problems during extraction or any other problem of Windows, and I'd be happy to help you again and try to correct the problem as soon as possible.

    Good day!

    Hope this information helps.
