Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.
I am working on an HP laptop that needed a new hard drive. I cloned the failing hard drive to a new hard drive and installed it back into the laptop. I tried to get Windows Updates but received the following error: Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer. I tried stopping the wuauserv service and re-naming the SoftwareDistribution folder and even deleting it but nothing worked. I finally stumbled onto a TechNet forum post that said to try and update the Intel Rapid Storage Technology” drivers and all I did was Google “Intel Rapid storage Technology HP” and used the first one that showed up from hp.com. It worked. Another symptom you’ll probably have is Microsoft Windows Defender won’t start, nor will the service. You will get an error message that says: “windows could not start the windows defender service on local computer error 0x8e5e0247.”
Synology 1512+ Backup & Replication to Amazon S3 extremely slow upload
So we are having problems with one of our client’s experiencing extremely slow uploads to Amazon S3. We just reached out to support to find out what can be done but from briefly searching the Internet it doesn’t seem to be that big of a problem. I’ve found a few instances of others having similar problems but nothing concrete in solving the actual problem. I have enabled multi part uploads and it is at its default setting. If I can figure it out I hope to report back here and let you all know.
Ricoh MP3001 printer does not remember user code with PCL6 driver
Ran into a problem with a Ricoh MP3001 printer installed onto Server 2008R2 using 64bit drivers PCL6. I had a user who could not print. We setup his user code and then he would try again and it still wouldn’t print. All things pointed to the user code. We check and the user code he just inputted is gone. Once you hit apply and then OK and that window closes and if you go back to printer preferences and job type and user code it was blank again. Changed the driver to PCL5 and the user code remains. Try it, it should work for you.
