Hosts

Written by leif. Posted in Tips

Modify your hosts file

Last updated on: 2016-06-08 Authored by: Rackspace Support

Modifying your hosts file enables you to override the DNS for a domain, on that particular machine. This is useful when you want to test your site without the test link, prior to going live with SSL; verify that an alias site works, prior to DNS changes; and for other DNS-related reasons. Modifying your hosts file causes your local machine to look directly at the IP address specified.

To modify the hosts file, you add two entries to the file that contains the IP address that you want the site to resolve to and the address. Adding the following two lines, for example, point www.domain.com anddomain.com to our current PHP5-ITK (“Refreshed” PHP5) cluster:

64.49.219.194 www.domain.com 64.49.219.194 domain.com

Windows 7 SP1 Windows Update stuck checking for updates

Written by leif. Posted in Tips, Windows

HIwmY

This is what I do when I reinstall Windows 7 with SP1 or have issues with Windows update stuck on checking for updates.

If Service Pack 1 is not installed, install it before following this guide.

Choose

windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe

for 64bit W7 or

windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe

for 32bit W7

Download KB-3138612 and save it where you can find it later

Download SUR Tool save it to same place

Restart the PC and disconnect from internet before Windows loads, this is important because at every boot windows will check for updates in the background and this will start the checking for updates hang all over again and will prevent the install of the downloaded packages until it finishes checking, so disconnecting from the internet before Windows loads prevents this.

Once booted install KB-3138612, if reboot is required do so and stay disconnected from internet.

Now install the SUR Tool package, this is a big package and will install many updates along with cleaning up and repairing the Windows update store. It will also cut down on how many more Windows updates will need to be installed later.

After install of SUR package reboot, connect to internet and do a manual Windows Update, it should work much faster now. Even after these fixes I have seen some W7 PC’s take up to an hour to finish checking for updates if launched from Control Panel manually.

If you have other Windows updates issues and the 2 updates above are installed, download this Microsoft Windows Update fixit tool (right click “save link as”) run it and select aggressive mode to completely reset Windows updates. Reboot and try Windows Updates from the Control Panel again.

Never10 – Disable Windows 10 upgrade

Written by leif. Posted in Programmer, Tips, Windows

Download an execute Never10

Original site https://www.grc.com/never10.htm

Unattended/automated operation
Version 1.3 of Never10 adds much-requested command-line switches to perform and further automate all Never10 operations. Never10 now offers the following command-line switches:

  • delete ‑ deletes any and all pre-downloaded Windows 10 files. If no Windows 10 files are present, the command’s presence is registered for user-interface suppression, but the command has no other effect.
  • disable ‑ disables the GWX subsystem to prevent all user prompting and pre-downloading of Windows 10. If both ‘disable’ and ‘enable’ are specified (though that makes no sense) this disable command takes precedence and all future Windows Update OS upgrading behavior will be disabled.
