You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item.

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item. Looks familiar to you when you are installing a new software or in Deltek GCS Premier service patch upgrade?

This is because of security implementation in Microsoft Windows 2003 Server. Very easy to solve this problem. All you have to do is select the file you want to run, right click on, then select properties. In General tab, scroll down and you will see Security: This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer. Click on Unblock. Click OK
Now, run the file again by double clicking, and it should work for you. Assuming that you have administrative permission to install a new software to this computer.

I just got this news today, very interesting to know what Google's response.

"The Internet attacks that may end up driving Google Inc. out of China originated from two prominent schools in the country, according to a story published late Thursday.

The New York Times reported security investigators have traced the hacking to computers at Shanghai Jiaotong University and Lanxiang Vocational School in China. The newspaper attributed the information to unnamed people involved in the investigation.

Google didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Lincoln Property Company finds a new home with Google Apps

Lincoln Property is the fifth largest property manager in the United States. When I joined the company, 950 of our 3,500 employees were using Novell Groupwise for email. We were maintaining an expensive infrastructure including servers, a SAN and data center space. It was difficult to maintain our email archive. It was also tough to find IT staff skilled in Groupwise. At the same time, we were looking to outsource as many of our mission-critical applications as possible.

Evaluating our options, we first considered remaining with Groupwise or switching to Microsoft Exchange. At the prodding of one of our tech-savvy partners, we tried out Google Apps and liked what we found. We did a comprehensive TCO analysis that included licensing and maintenance, data center costs, spam protection, server, SAN, migration costs, you name it.

Brand Awareness

Some known companies are already seen in SuperBowl Ads but not Google Search. Yesterday Google Search provided a simple demo on how to get the information you need using search engine, from going to Paris, booking tickets, where to buy a flower, a gift, name it you will find it.

Mobile TV ad by FLO.TV is also a great way to promote their service but also to the .TV domain name extension. Most businesses are using .COM for their website and email, but if the domain name is not available you can register other extension such as .TV .NET .ORG .INFO .BIZ .US, and other country extension. Visit NeedName.com to search your domain name.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We will back as soon as practical.

HOWTO Export contacts from Outlook to Excel.

This HOWTO article applies to Microsoft Office 2007. I think it should work for Microsoft Office 2003 as well. This is to export your Outlook Contacts information to an Excel worksheet. A little information to share about the difference between Outlook Address Book, and Outlook Contacts. "They are both part of Outlook. However, the Address Book is a compilation of the different address lists you might have stored in Outlook, such as Personal Address Book (.pab), LDAP Internet directories, the Global Address List (GAL), or other third-party address books. Contacts is just one of the address lists that makes up the Address Book." (2010, Office.Microsoft.com)

175 Million People Log Into Facebook Every Day

"Last year we interviewed Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. This year we interviewed her again. Notably, this time I brought a tripod with me and didn’t cut off Sheryl’s forehead.

A year ago Facebook had 150 million users, and more than 200 million people visited the site monthly. I noted “You realize it’s like 1 in 5 people in the world that are on the internet visit Facebook.” Sandberg replied, joking “So we have 4 in 5 more to go.”

The thing is, they’re well on their way to getting those other 4. Facebook has more than doubled in size to 350 million registered users in the last year. By this summer well over half of all Internet users will likely visit Facebook each month." (2010, TechCrunch.com)
