I had to do an iPhone factory reset because before I changed the main email address of an Apple ID from a non-existing email address to a new email address, the user of the iPhone didn't sign out (by going to Settings -> iTunes &amp App Store -> tap on the field says 'Apple ID' -> click Sign Out). But before doing a factory reset, I need to backup the contacts.

Note: Restoring from iTunes backup will also restore the old Apple ID.

In this scenario, I'm using a Windows 7 computer with iTunes 12.1.1 installed and an iPhone 4S.

To summarise the restoration, I will be backing up the iPhone using iTunes, then extract the contacts from the backup using iBackupViewer. Import the contacts (VCF files) to Windows Contacts. Restore iPhone, setup as new iphone, disable automatic sync then sync contacts from Windows contacts. Then sign in on iTunes and iPhone using the new Apple ID.

I was working on a HP computer (Windows 8.1) with Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013, Office Home and Student 2010 and Office Professional 2010 installed.

I had to uninstall the Home and Business 2013 because the trial expired.

After the uninstallation, everytime I run Outlook 2010, two unnamed folders were created on the desktop and sending emails thru Outlook would show an error "Not implemented."

The fix for "not implemented" for me was to repair Home and Student 2010 and a computer restart, although Outlook 2010 is part of Office Professional 2010.

After importing emails from Windows Live Mail to Outlook 2013, then importing contacts as CSV (Comma Separated Values) to Outlook, the contacts still would not appear when I clicked the To... button when creating new email.

I've also checked that the Contacts name properties -> Outlook Address Book tab has a tick on Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book


The issue was the email address was missing on all of the imported contacts because the email was not mapped accordingly. So make sure to drag E-mail Address from the left to the right where it says E-mail.

Note: This has been tested only on a computer connected to the internet via network cable and not wireless.

  • Login to the computer as local user (eg. user)
  • Install OpenVPN and setup/configure as normal
  • Create the OpenVPN certificate for that new VPN user you want to login as (eg. domainuser) if it doesn't exist
  • Using OpenVPN, connect to your network VPN as the user you want to login the domain profile as (in this case is domainuser)
  • While connected to the VPN, go to Start and Log Off and Switch User
  • Login as different user, type the domainuser and password (this is assuming the computer has been joined to the domain beforehand). Now you should see the Welcome screen and now the profile has been created locally to the computer.
