  • Hm, which one should we use?  Are the Fix it downloads all the same in each of these?  They look similar but not identical...

    It would be nice to have direct links to the Fit its in these posts.

  • Hey Rob,

    Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. The Fix it disables TCP auto-tuning by running the "netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled" command. That command is what is called out in each of the articles. The reason for this is having TCP auto-tuning enabled results in multiple symptoms which are individually described in each of the articles.

    Thanks,

    -brian

  • Hi, i had a client with a vista laptop that did not connect to file server then when i tried the autofix me and i ran it , things worked

  • When I initiate windows outlook express 6, I have windows XP by the way. It goes to the email where the heading reads, "Inbox-Outlook Express-Main Idenitity-Backup, then after about a minute on click on the max button, then it goes (Non-Responsive) where it stays and does not work. It just locks itself in and that's basically it. This started about 2 to 3 days ago and it will not click in.

    Thank you, for any suggestions.
