Ace Fekay's Technical blogs:

This is a list of blogs I've written over the past few years. I've taken some of my experience as a Microsoft Certified Trainer keeping up wtih and learning the latest technology, as a consultant, and as a Microsoft MVP in Directory Services helping numerous folks in the Microsoft Public Technet Forums pro bono. I am constantly updating them as well as writing new ones.

I hope you find them helpful. 

For expert technical assistance with any Windows products, please visit the Microsoft Technet Forums at the following link. Search and choose a forum for your product. Keep in mind, all the assistance is pro bono assistance from Microsoft engineers, Microsoft MVPs, and passersby.
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US

More info on the Microsoft MVP Program:

http://www.microsoft.com/mvp

Of course, if you can't get the assistance you're looking for in the forums, and the issue you're experiencing is an urgent matter with a production machine or product, I highly recommend calling Microsoft PSS (Product Services and SUpport) to get immediate assistance. The charge is approximately USD $260, but they will take all the time required, days, weeks, etc, to fix it for you for the one price. Use the following link to access Microsoft's support site:
