Computer Problems Resolved:

Lately, I have become very frustrated with looking for answers to my computer problems and NOT finding them on the Internet.

I, instead, find ads that bring me to more ads, forums with endless ideas but not solutions, or scams asking for my money before they even solve a problem.

So, I decided to make this page. I promise that it will contain NO advertisements and it will ONLY contain solutions to various computer related problems that I have used successfully.

I make the instructions as easy to understand and as non-technical as is possible.

As I just started this page on 12/18/2012, I will not include an index yet.


Problem 1:

WinRM hosted in IIS fails to start with error 1300 in event log

WinRM is hosted within IIS by enabling the WinRM native module at a particular IIS site, app or a vdir. IIS sites and apps can be configured to run in a specific application pool. Each application pool runs under a specific user context. WinRM will fail to start when the user associated with the application pool does not have the required privileges.
When this happens, the following event shows up in the event log:

The WinRM service is unable to start because of a failure during initialization.

Additional Data  
The error code is 1300


To fix this problem, do the following:

  1. Open secpol.msc
  2. Navigate to Local Policies -- User Rights Assignment
  3. Select the value "Generate Security Audits"
  4. Add the user account to the list


Problem 2:

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: NTDS General
Event Category: Replication
Event ID: 1079

Internal event: Active Directory could not allocate enough memory to process replication tasks. Replication might be affected until more memory is available.

User Action:
Increase the amount of physical memory or virtual memory and restart this domain controller.


A registry parameter is available that will allow you to increase the Kerberos token size. For example, increasing the token size to 64 KB (65,535 bytes) allows a user to be a member of more than 900 groups. Because of the associated SID information, this number may vary.

To configure this parameter you should do the following on every Domain Controller and every server / workstation in the Domain.

  1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).

  2. Locate and click the following key in the registry:


  3. If the Parameters key is not present, create the key.  To do so:

    Click the following key in the registry:


    On the Edit menu, click Add Key.

    Create a Parameters key.

    Click the new Parameters key.

    On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:

    Value name: MaxTokenSize
    Data type: REG_DWORD
    Radix: Decimal
    Value data: 65,535

  4. Quit Registry Editor.

    In Windows 2000 (the original released version), the MaxTokenSize value is 8,000 bytes. In Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Windows Server 2003, the MaxTokenSize value is 12,000 bytes.

    Microsoft recommends that you set this value to 65,535 decimal (0xFFFF hexadecimal). If you set this value incorrectly to greater than 65,535 decimal Kerberos authentication operations may fail, and programs may return errors


Problem 3:

Actiontec GT701D Ethernet DSL Modem and Router

Instructions on how to setup the Actiontec GT701D to work with another router (i.e. how to force the Actiontec GT701D to act as a DSL modem only):

  1. Follow the "Quick Start Guide" from Actiontec to configure the modem according to your specific ISP provider. HINT: You need to know your ISP's (AT&T) member ID and password. If you don't remember, you may call your ISP to find out.
  2. After configuration is complete, confirm that you are connected to the internet.
  3. Click "Advanced Setup" on the Main Menu.
  4. On the "DHCP Settings" page (the list on left side of your screen), turn off DHCP Server. Clink "Apply".
  5. On the "WAN IP Address" page, click "Yes" on the warning. Select RFC 1483 Transparent Bridging. Click "Apply". Please note: The internet light on the modem will be off, and it will remain off in bridged mode.
  6. Remove the Ethernet cable from your computer, and plug it into the "Internet" port of your Router. (Now, your modem will be connected to your router)
  7. Turn on your router by following your rounter's set up instruction.
  8. Enter your ISP's member ID and password (same as above)in your router settings. Follow instructions in your router's to enable DHCP on your router.
  9. Now you are connected to the internet by using your new modem and router in "Bridged" mode.
