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!
