Windows server 2008 admin rights issues

i have an issue on a 2008 server where all the local admins can not see event 
logs and really have bugger all rights at all, domain admins can.
i have turned off User Acess Control and it has made no difference apart 
from the pop up box no longer comes up to say are you sure you wnat to do 
this.
i even logged on as the local admin and that does not have the righst to see 
the event logs.
the message we get is "cannot open eventlog service on computer '.'." 
has anyone got any ideas on this?

Pass Through to SQL Server Optimization Questions
On an autoexec function several recordsets are opened. Some are queries to local tables, some are to sql server tables. I have been trying to optimize performance but I haven't seen much difference in speed between queries run directly against linked SQL Server tables vs pass through queries. Here is my code for creating the pass throughs (I have another function OpenRecordSetLocal that handles queries to tables within the frontend. The ODBC connection string resides in the query Q_PassThrough. Am I missing something key? Is there a better way to do this? Thanks. Function OpenRecord...

MS Office 2008 home version with Pro for entourage

Exchange 5.5 to 2003 upgrade issue 3
We have upgraded our Exchange 5.5 server to 2003 and moved all the mailboxes and moved and re-homed the folders following the KB articles. We turned off the 5.5 services and for a week everything was working fine. Now for some reason the messages to the main distribution list is being sent to the old 5.5 server on a x400 protocol. How can I stop this and assure that the 2003 server is self contained so I can get rid of this server? ...

Dropped connection to POP3 servers
Just installed Office 2003 under XP Home. Outlook is dropping connection to POP3 servers, I check 2 different servers with a S/R. Both fail at the same time, never separately. Sometimes I can exit Outlook gracefully but a reboot is required to get Outlook to work again. Sometimes locks entire system and have to powerdown manually. Pattern not fully determined but it appears to happen when there is other activity to the internet that is going to specific servers using an ID and password. I use Medved Quotetracker with E*Trade quotes (requires ID). If I bring up Quotetracker, Ou...

Vb.net 2008 ContextMenuStrip logical error when running code
Greetings, I have a connectmenustrip item that when clicked runs the following code (see below) Now if the event is called by the button i.e. cmdDeleteingBooking.Click the linq query returns the appropriate value. However when called by cntMnuCancelBookingItem.Click is returns 0 even if a checkbox is of 'TRUE' value. Debugging shows the code runs exactly the same code (which loops around rows in a datagridview checking if the checkbox has been checked). Could someone explain the reasoning why the same code would return different results? Private Sub cmdDelete...

Chart printing issue in Excel 2007
A spreadsheet with charts was created using Excel 2003. I have Excel 2007 and saved it in compatibility mode. I inserted a couple colored lines on the chart and created my own legend based on these. A couple of issues: 1. When I close the file or even minimize, 2 of the colored lines on a couple of my legends disappear upon reopening. 2. When I try to print a chart, it looks good in Print Preview, but then looks magnified,half off the page, and only one of my drawn lines is printed. When someone with 2003 prints, the sizing is correct, but all of the colored drawn lines are missing...

DPM and VMM on same server using side-by-side SQL installation
Windows 2008 Std R2 Server, 64bit VMM 2007 is currently installed (with the built-in default database) SQL 2005 Express Edition, SP3, 32bit. I was advised by Microsoft that both VMM and DPM could be installed on the same server (small DR environment) The VMs are hosted on a Windows 2008 Enterprise Server w/ VS2005R2 - because the hardware didn't support HyperV. VMM works great to manage the Windows 2008 VS2005R2 Host running Win2K3 server instances ... after lots of trial and error. Now, I need to install DPM 2007 onto the same server...
