Context menu appears slow with right mouse click on desktop on Windows 8.1

When I right clicked on my desktop it took about 30 second until the context menu appeared. I tried to solve it with updating the graphic card drivers but it still didn’t help. Finally I found the solution.

Delete all Graphiccard related entries in the registry:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

How to make a member Domain Controller to the primary Domain Controller in an emergency

So if you can’t recover the Primary Domain Controller then you have no other choice than making a member DC to a PDC. You can seize the roles with ntdsutil.

Run command prompt with domain admin rights:
1. ntdsutil
2. roles
3. connections
4. connect to server MyMemberDC
5. q
6. Seize domain naming master
7. Seize PDC
8. Seize RID master
9. Seize schema master
10. q q
11. dsa.msc

* We don’t seize Infrastructure Master because it should be on another DC where the Global Catalog isn’t installed.
* You can get help in ntdsutil anytime if you just write help and press enter

There are several software (emulator) to run android apps on your windows or mac computer. I tried so far BlueStacks and Genymotion. BlueStacks made a cluttered and slow impression and Genymotion worked smoothely and fast.

Here you can download Genymotion:
Genymotion

If you want to install Android apps on Genymotion you need to install Google Play Store first. Follow this step by step:

Usually the user content of a GPO will be ignored if it is a ou which just hast computers in it. But what to do if you want certain user settings to have them applied to just certain computers. For example for Terminal Servers you might have them more restricted.

To do this you need to activae Loopback:
[Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Group Policy\User Group Policy loopback processing mode]

There are two modes:
1. Merge
If user settings are already applied they will be used and will be replaced with the new ones in the loopback process.

2. Replace
Ignores all already applied user GPOs und will just use the ones in the loopback process.
