Cannot say enough good things about this online service!

It allows you to analyze files and links in a virtual environment for malicious content.

The coolest part is it does a lot of the analyzing and reporting for you.

…In the good old days..

In the good old days we used to be able to survive on 1.5 mbps. That’s no longer the case.

For the love of god, please do an analysis for bandwidth requirements when deploying technologies such as VoIP and cloud hosted video surveillance.

New Journey into Cyber Security

I’m starting a new path into Cyber Security…or is it Cybersecurity?

I’ve changed the theme on the blog to P2 as I don’t expect to have much time in crafting lengthy blog posts.

Hackers are after your vendors….to get to you.

You run a tight ship. You’ve invested a lot in securing your environment, but are your vendors as secure as you are?

If a service provider’s email account is hijacked, guess who is the next target? If their network is breach it won’t just be their data that gets compromised.

FIX Arc Touch Mouse Not Working Windows 10

Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse stopped working in Windows 10.  Perhaps it was the Windows 10 Creators update, perhaps it was buggy to begin with, or perhaps the previous solar eclipse cause interstellar gremlins to mess with your stuff, I don’t know, just throwing it out there.  The thing is that the Arc Touch Mouse is not working in Windows 10 and I recently learned how to fix it.

After attempting to run the troubleshooter, removing the device and re-pairing, rebooting and what not, the only thing that worked for me was:

  1. Remove Arc Touch Mouse device (again)
  2. Connect Arc Touch Mouse device (again)
  3. Go to and download Arc Mouse Mouse and Keyboard Center 3.0 for Windows 10.
  4. Install Arc Mouse and Keyboard Center 3.0 for Windows 10 (the installation wizard will likely fail to detect your Arc Mouse as it did to me)
  5. Power off mouse.
  6. Reboot
  7. Open Arc Mouse and Keyboard Center 3.0
  8. Power on Arc Mouse.

Arc Mouse Keyboard Center 3.0 should now detect your device.

Hope that helps.  Leave a comment either way.  Thank you.

Fix : The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed

Scouring the internet for a solution to “The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed” has hopefully brought you here.

If like me you tried the following Powershell commands…

$credential = Get-Credential – (enter domain admin account when prompted)
Reset-ComputerMachinePassword -Credential $credential -Server dc-hostname.domain

Reset-ComputerMachinePassword -Server dc-hostname.domain

Test-ComputerSecureChannel -Repair -Credential (get-credential)

…and they failed, then be sure to do the following three things:

  1. Make sure you are running PowerShell 3.0 or newer.  That is because older versions of PowerShell do not support certain parameters.  Download at ; you will be asked to reboot the system.
  2. Run As Administrator – Log in to an Administrator account, right-click over PowerShell and select to Run As Administrator.
  3. Execute the following PowerShell Command as it worked for me (typed exactly as seen below):

Test-ComputerSecureChannel -Repair -Credential (get-credential)

After hitting enter, I was prompted for the domain administrator credentials.  And it worked; no reboot needed.
