When you try to connect to join a domain on any Windows operating system or after entering a username and correct password, you may receive an error with the message “the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted”.
This “the specified domain does not exist or could not be contacted” error is usually due to invalid DNS settings on the workstation, as Active Directory requires domain DNS (not the router’s address) to function properly. The error can also occur because IPv6 does not work.
Go to Control Panel. Network and Sharing Center - Chang adapter settings - Properties and uncheck IPv6. Note that in Windows 11 this is the ONLY way to disable IPv6!
You're Very Welcome :-)

Go to C:\Windows\System32\Tasks find the related task and assign "read and execute" rights to the user you want to be able to access it. Be sure to assign to "current object only." Then the task will be visible and runnable from the limited user, and it will work if you saved your credentials in it and checked "run whether user is logged on or not."

Windows only: If you've ever come back to your PC and noticed it was rebooted, you might be curious to know exactly when it was shut down?
To figure out when your PC was last rebooted, you can simply open up Event Viewer, head into the Windows Logs -> System log, and then filter by Event ID 6006, which indicates that the event log service was shut down—one of the last things that happens before a reboot. This technique won't help you figure out when there was a power outage, but you can filter by Event ID 6005 to see when the system was last turned on—that event shows when the event log service was started again.
It's a simple tip, but could come in handy if you come back to your PC and want to figure out whether Windows Update or somebody else restarted your PC in the middle of the night, or you're just curious how many times you've rebooted in the recent past.
