How to Fix Windows 8 Connecting to Network Drives Issue

With Windows 8 Enterprise, there is a common issue that I’ve been experiencing.  If you are unable to connect or browse a UNC or mapped network drive, then you may want to try this fix. This will show you how to fix windows 8 network drive issues on enterprise edition.  I believe the issue is with the local group policy and authentication protocols.

  1. From the run command line (windows key + r) type gpedit.msc
  2. Now browse this path… Local Computer Policy > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options
  3. Now Enablethe following Policies.
    1. Microsoft Network Client : Digitally Sign communications (always)
    2. Microsoft Network Client : Digitally Sign communications (if server agrees)
    3. Microsoft Network Client : Digitally Sign communications (if client agrees)

You should now be able to connect and browse the network drives on your windows 8 machine.

Also, remember to log off/restart the computer before confirming the fix.

Borderlands 2 Unlimited Money Glitch on Xbox 360

There is an unlimited money glitch going on right now, but the bad thing is that it is only for Xbox 360(guess not so bad if you have one).

Here is how you do it!

1: Join a Friend’s Game.

2: Then accept all his money in a Trade.

3: And Save and Quit.

4: Now, Just re-join the game and give your friend all your money.

5: Following that you must press the Xbox Guide button in the middle of your controller and then press the X button to Sign Out without saving, just make sure your friend is still in their game.

6: Last thing to do-  Re-join your friend’s game once more and you’ll both have lots of money, because the game didn’t save the fact that you traded the money back to your friend.  Rinse and repeat until content and wallet is phat!

How to Activate Windows 8 Enterprise Edition via Command Prompt

There are some known issues registering Windows 8 Enterprise with the correct product key.  For many people they are getting DNS errors when trying to register.  Here is how to register Windows 8(or any version of windows) from the command prompt when you are unable to do it normally.


  1. Open command prompt as Admin (right click it, run as admin)
  2. Type –‘ SLUI.EXE 3 ‘
  3. This opens the “Activate over the internet” windows.
  4. Enter activation Key
  5. Click on activate and it should give you a message that windows has been successfully updated.

Hope that helps, remember you can also activate over the phone, but I prefer internet unless there isn’t a connection to be obtained.

General Tips and Tricks for Borderlands 2 – Leveling, Gold, and Questing

Here are some general tips and tricks that you should know when playing borderlands 2.   I personally play on PC, so some of these tricks or glitches might not be able to be recreated on the PS3 or XBOX 360.

Pre-Level 20 Leveling Tip – Extra Gold, Weapons, and Experience Points

When you are able to raid Caustic Cavern, you really should do it. It is such a wonderful place when your pre-level 20 to get loot, experience, and a whole lot of dolla dolla bills yall(cash bro!)

I Entered there with a little over $5000, some  decent weapons, and on level 16. Three different raids with different parties later, left on level 21, over $50,000, and got an orange and magneto weapon -

Play the Slots!

The slot machines are a great way to blow some money and get great upgrades and super bad ass weapons!

Wondering where the slots are? They are at Moxxi’s place in sanctuary, where Sir Hammerlock hangs out at, that rascal.
