Preferred Solution: How do I disable the "Protected mode is currently turned off for the Internet zone" message?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
Based on my research, this is by design. You cannot disable the warning when you open a new IE windows.

Hello!

The subject says it all. We have all the
PCs in a domain. Via GPO
is "Enhanced Protected Mode"
aktivated.
Under Win 8.1.
everything works perfectly.

Update on Win10: domain user
(with roaming profiles
- but should not matter ...) are not able to open any page in IE zone "internet. If I type the URL manually and press ENTER, nothing happens. When I click on a link tp any external page on our
intranet page, two new tabs open with
the URL "res:
//ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#,about: blank"

Intranet and Trusted Sites
(also via GPO defined) works fine (because protected mode is disabled for them by default).

By trial and error I found out that it
is the "EPM" that causes the problem.
If I switch it off, IE works again.

But why does it work
under Win8.1 and no longer
under Win10?
(BTW, when I try to start IE like this "iexplore -extoff", it opens with an empty window, stays for about ten seconds and then closes again. No error message, nothing ...)

Can anyone confirm this behavior?

Recently, my company started working with a company where they wanted to redirect from an internal Intranet Kiosk site to a publicly available application site. The site apparently (due to lack of something) does NOT have the ability to remove any File Upload
links when coming from the Kiosk URL.  The Kiosk computers are running Windows 7 Pro with various GPOs and registry keys locking them down to using Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode replacing the explorer.exe on the user account. The problem is we have
not been able to find a way to Disable "Choose File to Upload" dialogs in Internet Explorer 11. This seems like it should be a pretty straight forward option as you can disable File Downloads using GPOs but apparently disabling File Uploads isn't
something commonly done. 
A number of blocks are in place, but there is always the fun the user could have of uploading files by using their Environmental Variables (Example: %WINDIR%\win.ini) that we would like to avoid.  In fact, I'd like to avoid any dialog to avoid any issues
with seeing Libraries or Desktop folder paths.
Given Kiosk Mode for Internet Explorer has been an age old feature, I'm amazed disabling "File Upload" isn't some default option when you set in Kiosk Mode.
Please assist!  Thanks!

Hello,

I'm a new poster here and I discovered the forum while searching for a solution to a problem that I am having with my Windows Security Center being turned off.

This is the last symptom of a problem that I noticed about a week ago. At that time my Google searches in Firefox were being hijacked to other sites on a pretty consistent, but not 100% basis. Google searches in other browsers, IE9 and Chrome still worked. Also my System Restore functions had been monkeyed with so they looked like that was not working (wouldn't open) but I could tell that it was actually working and the error message was spurious.

I was able to restore the Google search functionality in Firefox AND get system restore back by installing and running SUPERAntiSpyware. That program found several bits of malware and apparently fixed most/some of them. (Yes, I purchased a copy immediate--out of gratitude, if nothing else!). I also own a copy of Anti-MalwareBytes and ran that, but it found nothing.

I thought I was good to go, but today I noticed the little flag icon in the system tray was red X'd and I discovered the error message about the Security Center is turned off. I tried going to the service center and turn it on, but same error. I tried opening the list of services and there is none for Windows Security....so I'm assuming some malware has either removed or disabled the files in there.

As I mentioned I came here via Google search and read a long thread about a similar probl... Read more

After posting my message above, I continued to Google around and found a page with directions about restarting the security service. I guess I'm not SUCH a "savvy PC user" after all, as I had missed the exact name of the service and I reported it missing above.

I re-enabled and then restarted it and it seems to be functioning again.

Thanks for anyone who read the entire message and my apologies for wasting your time if you did.

Whenever I boot up now I find that the Windows Defender icon is not in the system tray, and when I double click on the WD desktop icon there is a message that "Windows Defender is turned off". I can open it without a problem, but it is certainly a nuisance to have to do so manually every time I boot up. I am not sure how long this problem has existed, but it's been at least a week that I know of. Scans appear to run normally, as does Windows Update.

My OS is Vista Home Premium 32 bit on a Dell machine. I also run NIS 2009 and Webroot AV/AS. I prefer to use the Norton Firewall. All of these apps have been running together without any obvious conflicts. Is it possible that updates to any of them might be responsible for this problem? I doubt very much that malware is to blame because full scans never turn up anything, and I try to run a clean machine.

Thanks to anyone who can offer some insight.

A:message "Windows Defender is turned off"

Hi, the solution is simple, Norton it is just not suitable to run on any home computer. Get rid of it, use their uninstaller and use windows firewall the problem with Norton is very poor code and it's firewall integrates poorly with Vista, there is a known issue with defender and Norton. I do not recommend either product. Use Nod 32 for AV or AVG free use windows firewall and superantispyware for malware protection.

Hi,
Since a few days back a strange problem started ocurring for some users in our domain. Some have IE9 others like me have IE11. Problem is that IE can't browse Internet pages (it just keep loading with the white screen) when Protected mode is ON. Previously
there was no problem with this. Other browsers don't have this issue. OS in the company is Win7.
Thank you.
Leo.

A:Can't browse Internet zone when protected mode is ON

Hi Leo,
Could you please include a link(s) (copied from the IE Address bar) to any website you are having problems with, in your questions. This will enable us to visit the sites to make some tests and guesses.
Protected Mode, on Win7 forces the IE tab process to use a x64 process, so x86 activex controls will not run and are blocked.
For IE11/Win7 there is also ActiveX filtering which will stop x86 or x64 ActiveX controls from running.
IE11 also has depreciated the ActiveXControl object which some sites may use for feature detection. From memory, I don't think IE9 had ActiveX filtering, but there are Addons for all versions of IE (Flash block for example) that have a similar functionality.
Use Tools>Manage Addons>Show all Addons to locate and find the properties of your installed ActiveX controls and whether or not they have been disabled.
So I await your re-post with some sample web addresses where the problem is occurring.
Also, the first step in troubleshooting web browser issues is to test in noAddons modeRob^_^

Hello,
I'm finding that our users are experiencing issues accessing full functionality from multiple web sites and when I disable Protected Mode, their issue is resolved.  I have some specific cases that I would like to share:
1. A website which is secured.  The Windows security dialog appears and prompts the user to enter credentials (Not an HTML form...this is a windows dialog).  If protected Mode is enabled on the Internet zone, then this prompt never appears and
therefore the users cannot sign-in and gain access to the site.
2. OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online are accessed using ADFS for authentication.  The sites were attempting to load but simply timing out until I disabled Protected Mode on the Internet site.  Then the both sites (accessed via
https://portal.office.com) would completely load and be usable.
3. There are others but now that I think of it, they appear to be redundant.  It seems with Protected Mode enabled, authentication does not function properly on multiple sites.  We have tried circumventing this by adding some of these sites to
the Proxy Exceptions List and also configuring policy to treat all Proxy exceptions as Intranet Zone.  Protected Mode is disabled on the Intranet zone.  However, it seems counterintuitive to have Internet sites added to the Intranet Zone or to Bypass
the proxy server to access them.  So I would love to know where I'm going wrong with our configuration of In... Read more

I have a laptop with a USB 1.1 sockets only running Windows XP SP2.

Whenever I plug-in my USB flash drive or wireless card (both of which are USB 2.0 devices), I get the annoying ballon/message pop up stating "This Device Can Perform Faster" (if plugged into a USB 2.0 port etc).

Both devices work fine at 1.1 speeds, and I don't want to be reminded of the fact that I only have a 1.1 socket every time I plug the bl**dy thing in!

Is there any way of making a registry entry/edit or some other way to stop this popping up? I've found plenty of info on how to turn pop-up ballons/messages off altogether, but I only really want to stop this one.

If anyone knows, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

PS: I've searched on TechNet but that only returns the usual un-related crap.

A:Disable the "This Device Can Perform Faster" balloon/message in Windows XP SP2

In Device Manager, click on the USB host controller, click the Advanced tab and then check the box on the bottom of the window that says "Don't tell me about USB errors." I think you need to do this for each USB controller listed under USB in Device Manager so that the error message will not appear no matter which controller the device gets plugged into.

I have my Toshiba laptop set to turn off the screen while it downloads overnight. Every morning, I find the same problem: the computer has completely locked up with no pointer. I can't do anything, so I have to press and hold the power button to restart the machine. On restarting, the computer gives me the standard "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" error. Yes, I know. Windows doesn't need to tell me this. I know there was an unexpected shutdown because I shut it down, unexpectedly.

I'm not interested in fixing the problem. I've tried, and nothing I do helps. What I want is to simply eliminate the error message. Is there a way to get Windows 7 to stop telling me what I already know? It's very annoying.

A:Disable "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" message

I figured it out. Tell Windows to quit whining. Go into the Group Policy Editor. Under "Computer Configuration," select "All Settings". Scroll down until you will find an entry labeled "Turn off Windows Error Reporting". Right click on it and select "Edit". Tick "Enabled'. This turns off Windows error reporting.

It doesn't fix the improper shutdown issue, but it's good enough for me and the girls I go out with.

Hi.

The title says it all, but let me clarify anyway:

1-The problem mostly occurs when running demos you can find at Pouet.net and rarely (but still do happen) in other application/games.

2- After some testing, I'm, fairly sure the problem is due to the GPU memory being used to the max or near the max. So lower resolution, simpler textures and turning off post processing (like MSAA) should help. It should, but it does not always. I suspect Windows 7 to trigger low resources alert much too easily, in fact giving false positive all the time. Like when decompressing large textures and busting the max VRAM cap, even for a faction of a second. If I find my system sluggish, I will take the necessary action, no need for Windows to interrupt me all the time.

3-Yes, I have searched an answer extensively on Google, here, and other forum, for the last hour. Threads from 2009 to 2014.

4- No, none of the provided suggestions worked as NONE of the suggestions precisely addressed the goal of ***eliminating the popup windows completely.***

In conclusion, I'm asking a simple question that can be answered by yes or no: Do you, yes or no, know how to *disable* the Windows 7 message "Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance"?

If the answer is yes, please give me the detailed procedure and I will be eternally grateful. If the answer is no, sorry to be blunt, but your wild guesses are of no interest to me. Technically, this thread should have 1 reply and... Read more

A:How to disable "Do you want to change the color scheme" message

Don't know if this will be of any help - I have an i7 and a good gfx card, but I have one program that insists on changing the theme. The prog is the screen recording app Camtasia, and it's really annoying to get interrupted 2 mins into a session. My solution was to create a basic theme that I named 'recording' with no aero etc that I switch to before I do any Camtasia stuff.

R-click the desktop and > personalize, then click Windows 7 basic and tweak desktop, colors etc to your liking. R-click this unsaved theme and give it a name. Then when you are doing your 'demos' or whatever, switch to the basic theme first. It's a PITA, but that's what I have to do on my fairly powerful system (o/c i7-2600K, GTX 750Ti 2GB, 8GB RAM).

Hi, I have turned off my internet protected mode on my IE8 browser and I wish to turn it back on. However, I am unable to do so even though I have reset the browser settings to default under tools > internet option > advance > reset > reset all personal settings. I have closed and restart my browser.

I have done in both on the 1) browser and 2) control panel > internet option but to no prevail. Can anyone please advise me? Thanks!

A:Turned off Internet Protected Mode and unable to turn it back on

Do you have UAC turned off also? That will keep it from being turned on.

See if this helps also,

Not sure what I have installed and caused the above problem. The internet connection or to be precise, the IE/Netscape Navigator is running very slowly even when the Network Receiving smooth data. i.e. the network connection from I see is running reasonably alright. But the loading page of IE or netscape doesn't seem to be right. And also, a lot of IE page when browsing, turn to "Blank Page"! The URL showed on the address bar is only "http://". It repeats the same thing when I clicked "Back" button.

Even when there's no any online programmes such as IE, messengers and downloading programme is running, the connection flow is still large. I suspect there might be some malwares or adwares running at the background which I can't find them by seeing "process" of "Ctrl-Alt-Del".

Please advise with the following hijackthis logfile. Thanks a lot.

I have installed Wamp server and I have created 2 tables in phpmyadmin that are connected via ODBC to an Access database. I have tested it with and another Access
database, which sends test orders to it via a php file.
Now I wish to connect an AI2 android app to localhost to send test orders from this source.

I found a web page which sets out a method to connect an app via the IP address, but when I enter my IP address into Windows Explorer I get the following message.
?The device or resource is not set up to accept connections on port "The World Wide Web service (HTTP)".
I have seen a previous answer that suggests resetting Internet Explorer\Tools\Internet Options\Connections\LAN Settings and checking the ?Automatically
detect settings? box, but on my system this is already checked.
Is there anything else I can do please?
My system is Windows 7 32 bit and I have Microsoft Security Essentials and Microsoft Firewall running for home & private networks.

I also need to disable "safe mode with networking" option. Isn't there really another way except paying for an overpriced hack? (Disable Safe Mode)

A:need to disable "safe mode with networking"

Again, why disable it? There has to be a specific reason for it, or are you simply worried that someone could start up the computer in safe-mode-with-networking and then somehow access it from the outside to hack into it?

Win 7 Professional x64
EMET 5.2 & Adobe Acrobat Reader 11 were working together. Not sure what my EMET 5.2 mitigation settings were for Reader.
Upgraded to EMET 5.5 and now I get a message when launching Adobe Reader saying:
"Adobe Acrobat Reader DC cannot be opened in Protected Mode due to an incompatibility with your system configuration. Would you like to open Adobe Acrobat Reader DC with Protected Mode disabled?"
If I select open with Protected Mode disabled, Adobe still crashes for certain operations. My default EMET settings for AcroRd32.exe are everything checked except ASR.
If I disable all mitigations in EMET 5.5, Adobe Reader works normally.
If I return mitigations to default and then additionally disable EAF+, the problem persists, although I found a post saying that fixed the issue in earlier versions of EMET.
Question: Is there a custom set of mitigations that enable Reader to work, or should I disable Reader mitigations in EMET, or should I disable Protected Mode in Reader, or should I use a different PDF viewer like SumatraPDF?
Thanks

My "Enable Protected Mode" box is checked but all my browser windows status bar shows "Protected Mode: Off", with a red "locked" circle icon on an eye icon or a circled exclamation mark in a square icon... next before blue globe icon "Internet".

Is this what it is supposed to be? Or am I missing some built in protection here? Shouldn't it be "Protected Mode: On"?

Could some please explain the correct sequence or syntax of the http entries in the Internet Explorerís browser address line to invoke the name and password entry box for a D-Link Camera, when accessing it remotely?

I have a dynamic host, which has an address that is entered in the browser's open box, in the following format:
http://servername.dynamichostnameortnumber. The port numbers are the ports assigned to the two cameras. The server name is the same server name that is assigned to the router and the DYNdns host. The dynamic host name is set up with DYNdns.org and has been tested using their tools and is reported as working.

I have tried the remote (internet) access on computers running both Windows XP home and professional, service pack 3.

The cameras are DCS-6620G 802g Wireless cams. Have configured cameras. If I am on my wireless intranet, I can access the cameras by either typing in their local IPs into the open box on the File Menu of Windows Internet Explorer or by using the IP Surveillance Software, no problem, so far. Each camera has an internal static IP, and each has been assigned its own HTTP port number which has been forwarded to the respective static IP in the Linksys WRT54G router.

Each Camera has an administrator name and password that has been saved. When accessing on my intranet, either through IE or the Surveillance Software, there is a drop down box that opens to input the name and password. This works fine on the intranet.

Hello @all!

Sorry for my English... I'll try to explain it as simple as possible.

We have a computer where only remote access is done. We do not use keyboard or screen on it because we don't need to access it locally.

We had a problem to which I am looking for a solution. After a short power loss the computer started automatically up again but showed the message where you might boot into safe mode... and, as it seems, there is no time out. So we had to change the computer to another place for pressing enter.

Is there any possibility to avoid this message or put a timer?

We are using Windows 7 64bit.

Thanks for any ideas!
