Error: "Document not Saved" in Excel 2013

When saving a document stored on a network drive, this error occurs when clicking save.
If the document is copied locally the error does not occur.
NTFS Permissions are all correct.

This issue arrose for me and the issue was that "Offline Files" was causing an issue. When I opened and cleared the temporary offiline files from the Sync Center this solved the problem. Also when I re-enabled the offline files for this document the issue returned.

Windows 10 start button or system tray icons are not working

Right I had this issue after migrating a system image from a VM to my phsical laptop.

First thing to try is the System File Checker - Run this as admin. If you can't get CMD open, remember its located at c:\Windows\System32. You could get here by CTRL+R > Type the location > Hit Enter.

sfc /scannnow

If the outcome says that it could not repair the files, either mount the windows 10 ISO or insert the disc and then run this:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:F:\sources\install.wim:1

F = the drive letter the media is mounted to.

Then re-run sfc /scannow

If this failes, run PowerShell in admin mode (can be found at C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\)

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

At this point my start button and system tray started to work again.

This issue occurs when you have WSUS installed on a server with a webiste. It's caused by conflicting modules from the top level server node and the web site node in IIS. Here is how to fix it.

1. Run CMD as administrator: and run

%windir%system32inetsrvappcmd.exe add backup "My Backup Name"

This will backup your IIS config,

Removing DynamicCompressionModule and StaticCompressionModule from IIS:
a. In IIS manager, click on the Server node for the IIS server.
b. Double click on the Modules icon

c. Find
DynamicCompressionModule and click "Unlock"
d. Find
StaticCompressionModule and click "Unlock"
e. Now click on you're website node, and open the Modules config.
f. Select
DynamicCompressionModule and then click "Remove"
g. Select
StaticCompressionModule and click "Remove"

3. Restart IIS

Use JetPack to compact the DHCP database

Jetpack is not in the location it should be on a clean install.
Search the windows directory for "Jetpack" and copy it to c:\windows\system32\DHCP\


IE8 application errors

If you have probblems with a machine using IE you can try re registering there .dll files. This has solved various things for me before.

regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\urlmon.dll
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\shdocvw.dll
