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.)

Hello,
I'm with security issue CVE-2020-1472 | Netlogon Elevation of Privilege Vulnerability and the following occurs to me:

I'm having trouble starting to collect events 5827-5831
I have installed the August 2020 update on a DC Microsot Windows Server 2012 R2 to start the event collection, and no events appear, even when logging in with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 without the August update.

I have set the FullSecureChannelProtection registry key to 1, and from a server with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 without the August 2020 update I can login without problems.

No events appear in the security log and I can login without problems with FullSecureChannelProtection at 1. I don't understand where the problem is. Can anyone give me any clues?

sorry for my english

Hiya

The Windows Redirector is used by a Windows client to access files,
whether local or remote, regardless of the underlying network
protocols in use. For example, the "Add a Network Place" Wizard or
the NET USE command can be used to map a network share as a local
drive, and the Windows Redirector will handle the routing of
information to and from the network share.

A security vulnerability exists in the implementation of the
Windows Redirector on Windows XP because an unchecked buffer is
used to receive parameter information. By providing malformed data
to the Windows Redirector, an attacker could cause the system to
fail, or if the data was crafted in a particular way, could run
code of the attacker's choice.

Hiya

The Network Connection Manager (NCM) provides a controlling
mechanism for all network connections managed by a host system.
Among the functions of the NCM is to call a handler routine
whenever a network connection has been established.

By design, this handler routine should run in the security context
of the user. However, a flaw could make it possible for an
unprivileged user to cause the handler routine to run in the
security context of LocalSystem, though a very complex process.
An attacker who exploited this flaw could specify code of his or
her choice as the handler, then establish a network connection
in order to cause that code to be invoked by the NCM. The code
would then run with full system privileges.

Hi
With this latest vulnerability, i need some clarification about what exactly is a "Non-Compliant Device".
In the KB articles definition, A non-compliant device is one that uses a vulnerable Netlogon secure channel connection.
So that means, lets say you have a Windows machine, that has not been patched correctly, and still uses vulnerable netlogon connection.
So once the DC is patched for this vulnerability, what will happen to this Windows machine?
Will it get denied connection and be reported in event ID: 5827/5828?
Or will it be allowed connection, as it is technically a non-compliant device based on the definition, as it is using vulnerable netlogon connection? And be logged under event ID: 5829?

The other question i have is for the use of the GPO policy: "Domain controller: Allow vulnerable Netlogon secure channel connections"
So i understand that this will bypass the enforcement.
However, if the "Non-Compliant" device is not a windows device, i will assume that the GPO will not work for these devices. So when in enforcement phase, for these such non windows devices that is still using vulnerable netlogon connection, there
is no workaround right? Either get vendor to provide a fix or decommission?

Thanks DM.

I have seen this question asked before and attempted a few solutions. Fixing computer problems is not my forte and I would really like an easy to followed solution. I have downloaded the program Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2. It has converted most of my files to OpenOffice.org XML 1.0 Spreadsheet. When I first downloaded them and was able to open some they would only open as spreadsheet files, OpenOffice calc. Now all I get is the above message.
I'm not wishing to make myself unwelcomed as a new comer but I have found things becoming more and more complicated and not as easily fixed since moving from Windows 7. Unfortunately, for me, when I purchased my current laptop it came with W8 which I managed to cope with only just. When W10 came along I was drawn in by the online recommendations and went along with the upgrade.

He has helped me out with a download that I purchased and was not able to install with Windows 10 by using his Windows 7. He has also downloaded and is using Apache OpenOffice without any problems.

Hi easily confused,

I did some checking, and it looks as if it might be a permission error. See HERE for details.

Also, if you are unable to get that sorted out, there is the option of using a replacement program called LibreOffice. See HERE to compare the two.

Hang in there with Win-10 as these bugs will resolve in time and sooner or later. The one thing that might help might be to do a clean install, rather than a basic upgrade. See HERE.

I'm trying to do a ipconfig/flushdns. It wouldn't work. So i ran cmd.exe as an administrator, and it worked just fine. However, i found the fact that I had to do this a bit annoying, since i'm already an administrative user. I looked at the file permissions for cmd.exe and i noticed that the user "trustedinstaller" had more rights than administrator did, who had the same rights as the average user. How do I go about changing my access rights to those simmilar to trustedinstaller, or just change my classification to trustedinstaller all together? I don't want to have to find cmd.exe and run it as an admin, every time I want to do anything that might be "unwanted."

Would it be easier if i disabled windows defender?

Also, I would like to change it so that when I right click .html files, they open in firefox, but I would like the "edit" option to be notepad. I know how to do this in xp, and I know how to change overall file association in vista, but how do I change just the edit option in vista?

I am trying to write a simple script that will check to see if a domain user is a member of the local administrators group, and if not, add that user.

I am currently doing this manually by doing a "runas" command to run MMC as a user that already has local admin rights, and then add the actual user (whose account is on the domain) to the local admin group, then have them log off and logon again to make the changes take effect.

Here is what I am looking to have the script do:

run from the command line
gather domain name and user name of locally logged in user
have a "hard-coded" username of a user that already has local admin rights
prompt for the password of the "hard-coded" username (but not show the actual username on the prompt)
elevate the local domain/user to be a member of the local administrators group
prompt the user to log off and back on to make the changes take effect.

Can this be done with a simple batch/cmd file, or would it require WSH/VBS?

I have been trying to mod my system's appearance by installing dlls that came with a theme I found online. I ended up renaming Imageres.dll to Imageres.dll-bak...however after I did that I can no longer push yes or no when prompted by UAC. The actual window doesn't show up at all. All it says is that I need admin rights to do whatever it is I'm trying to do, but then doesn't show the yes or no or password thing. So I can't change it back, and can't put any new files in that folder since I can't get administrator priviledges to do so.

I also tried doing a system restore but I then got a 8x80004005 error and can't even do that.. I'm about to try enabling the built-in administrator account and see if I can make the changes there but I'm afraid to log out so I'm making this post now. Can anyone help me out?

I've been running Windows 8 x64 on an HP ENVY H8-1445 desktop for a couple of months. I have Start8 (Start button plus boot to desktop) and ModernMix (run modern apps in windows) installed to make it bearable. UAC is set at the minimum level (I build live CDs with WinBuilder and it needs to have UAC as off as it gets).

About two weeks ago, without any apparent event that triggered it, installation programs started failing. The problem was elevation; they couldn't do it. E.g. if I downloaded a file and told the browser to run it it would fail immediately. This happens in all IE, Opera, and Chrome. If I download the file and save it then run it as administrator it works fine.

There must be a setting somewhere that governs this, but I sure can't find it.

Hello,

I have an application that is run from the command line. I cannot get the application to run without error unless I run as administrator. I have two newer versions of the same application that run just fine and do not require administrator. The differences in the code between the versions are not extensive and I can't figure out why the old version needs elevation to administrator to run. These applications were built with gnu cpp and don't have a manifest. The application is actually two binaries that communicate through shared memory. There is a parent process that launches a child process, passes data to the child, and receives data back. I don't know what this would have to do with anything because the versions that work do the same thing as the versions that don't.

Can anyone here shed any light on reasons why windows 7 would require administrator and possible work-arounds?

LMHmedchem

A:why does windows 7 require elevation to administrator?

For security reasons Windows requires admin privileges to access many system resources. This has been a feature of the NT platform since the beginning. Each new version of Windows has tightened up security to meet the demands of the world of today. That creates some issues for applications designed for older operating systems, particularly when running with a non admin account. Needed resources that were accessible on older systems can no longer be accessed without an admin level account. Newer applications were designed for the more modern tightened security and they run as expected. They may not with a future OS.

Workarounds, if any, will depend on the details of the situation.

Lately, I've been experiencing a weird and new problem: Programs I run with elevation (i.e. as Administrator) have been randomly terminated. I'm not sure why this is happening. Is this a new Windows 10 security feature?

Examples: I run Process Hacker with elevation to access all its features and allow for services to be stopped, processes to be killed, etc. But Process Hacker is one of the applications that is itself being terminated somehow at seemingly random intervals. It will be running, tray icons and all, then suddenly be terminated. I won't know it has been killed until I move the mouse cursor over its tray icons, which disappear as soon as I do.

There are several other examples of programs I always run with elevation. They are all being terminated at the same time, but I'm not doing it. It's pissing me off.

Nothing jumps out at me in the event logs.

On a Win7 ultimate system (svc pack 1), when I try to open any file in the my documents folder I get an error message that says that this operation "needs elevation".

So I picked one particular file that I couldn't open and I looked at the owner in the security tab. Indeed the owner was not set to me. It was set to "Administrator". Although I'm logged in as an administrator, my login has my name in it, so this was not me. (I don't see any other user accounts however). So anyway I go ahead and change the owner to me. If I cancel and go back in thru properties I see that this worked. (i.e. I am now listed as the owner of this file). However windows still will not allow me to open the file (same error messages). I have the permissions set to "Everyone", and all the permissions are checked. (I do this to allow full file sharing, even with non Windows 7 computers). I've tried playing with various permissions, but everything I see is checked. Why is windows still so insistant that I shouldn't open this file?

By the way, I tried copying the file to another drive. Windows allows that, but again I can't open it. Then I deleted this copy, which windows did without complaint. I'm dumbfounded. Windows thinks it's perfectly acceptable for me to have rights to delete a file that I have no right to even look at.

By the way, I have run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. Both found and fixed a few problems, but still this needs elevation problem remains.

I am not sure if this would be applicable for your case, but Task Scheduler can solve your problem.

Hey Everyone, my first time on the forums here, and hopefully i am posting in the right section!

This is going to be a bit of an in depth explanation here and i am sure i will leave stuff out that we have already tested, as i have done a fair bit of tested into what exactly is happening. Unfortunately we do not know what is causing the issue yet, which is what i am going to try and narrow down first. I will try and lay this out in as short of a way as possible so here goes.

We have a Windows 7 image that we use, and have had an issue where our main user account (which is a member of the administrators group) ends up not being able to install applications, due to what seems to be UAC not elevating. We have a second admin account we have for our own uses, and the guest/built-in administrator accouts are disabled.

We are running Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
After an image of a machine (i think it was just sysprepped and maybe driverpacks were used) the account is fine, and it seemingly breaks "randomly" (have to narrow down when it actually happens)
UAC is disabled on all machines working and not working(all prompts disabled, i realize it is technically still enabled)
If you re-enable UAC, the installer or program will run fine with appropriate administrative rights, but if you run the application and it needs to create files to run there can be issues we run into.

Just figured i would post back as to what the issue was as i THINK i just figured it out. Eventually i narrowed it down to an issue with the desktop, not necessarily the C: drive so something off in my troubleshooting there initially lol. Running the following command showed me the issue:

icacls C:\users\username\desktop

c:\users\username\desktop NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM(OI)(CI)(F)
BUILTIN\Administrators (OI)(CI)(F)
HOME-PC\username (OI)(CI)(F)
Mandatory Label\Low Mandatory Level (OI)(CI)(NW)

Do not know how it set this low mandatory level in the first place or even what it is as it is not there on working machines, but it was preventing most files from running from the desktop. Running this commands fixed it for me:

icacls C:\users\username\desktop /setintegritylevel high
then
icacls C:\users\username\desktop /setintegritylevel low

this removed the (oi) and (ci) inheritance from them, so not sure if its actually not technically active on items on the desktop now with those settings which could explain why its working... that setting must now only be active on the desktop folder itself and not its children.... i also found a utility that removes it all together from a third party called CMHL that removed it with a command line command!

Hope this helps someone else some day down the road!

Hello,

Just got a home PC with Windows 8 last week. We were running a program called ExamGuard for the past week. This program basically locks your browser so you can't copy/paste or navigate away from the exam until it's completed.

Suddenly today it stopped working. When running a diagnostic, it states Requested Operation Requires Elevation.

Help! This user is the administrator. Can't figure it out and we have a test to take!

Thanks

A:Requested Operation Requires Elevation - ExamGuard

Hello Celial, and welcome to Eight Forums.

That usually means that you will need to right click on the program's shortcut and click on Run as administrator for the program to run elevated.

Run as Administrator - in Windows 8

If you like, you could probably use OPTION FIVE or OPTION SIX in the same tutorial above to always have that progam "Run as administrator" when you run it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Script Elevation PowerToys for Windows Vista


Download the code for this article: Utility2007_06.exe (159KB)


Among the many features Windows Vista introduced to address security concerns, User Account Control (UAC) is one of the most significant. With User Account Control, even users who are administrators run most applications with standard privilege, but have "elevation potential" for specific administrative tasks and
application functions. After using Windows Vista™ for many months, elevating a task or application as necessary has become second nature. However, I also encountered a number of shortcomings when trying to elevate some types of tasks in Windows Vista, and that became frustrating.
So in the spirit of the old Windows? PowerToys, I’ve created a few Script Elevation PowerToys to overcome these limitations. You can find all of the PowerToys I’m about to discuss in the code download at technetmagazine .com/code07.aspx. And you can read about how UAC works in the November 2006 article "Achieve the Non-Admin Dream with User Account Control" by Alex Heaton (see the "Additional Resources" sidebar).

Elevate Command PowerToy

The first annoyance was that there was no method to elevate an application from the command line or from the Run dialog box. So after asking around within Microsoft, I came across a sample scri... Read more

Where I work a manager bought a /16 block of Public IP addresses and it's been used for everything in our network.

In a GPO it's set to prompt for Zone Elevation in the Local Intranet Zone part of settings.
With IE9 users never get a prompt when going from one intranet URL to the next.
But with IE11 they suddenly do. No GPO's altered (yet).
Reading
this blog I understand why it happens. And it makes sense when you use private addresses for your LAN.

Is there any way I can work around this?

Looking for some explainataion here. I've have through local (yes local not domain) group policy configured the allowed bad logon attempts to 3, requiring an administrator to unlock.  But i have noticed that when i trigger the UAC elevation
prompt for consent, it triggers a bad logon attempt (evt id 4625) on all user accounts. potentially leading to locking out all acounts if its three times within the period.
Could someone enlightment me on the interworkings of UAC and why it attempts logons on all accounts? and if i'm lucky, how to make it stop?

Update: the events don't seem to get created for elevating a cmd prompt with "run as administrator" or opening up the event viewer. They do get created with add/remove user accounts and setup parental controls.

I reinstalled XP Pro w/ SP3 and now there are several hardware issues that have arisen.

1. Upon normal boot, screen locks then gives me blue screen with a BAD_POOL_HEADER error. From what I understand this is often caused by hardware issues. I searched the device manager and found that my Ethernet Controller is not found. It is listed as a yellow "?" with an "!" on top of it. I used Everest Home Version and could not locate my Ethernet Controller- I do not know if it is called something else or what the deal was.

2. Upon shutting down the computer I get another blue screen stating that there is an NMI Parity Error and I need to contact my hardware provider for service. Again, caused by hardware, and I am assuming it is the Ethernet controller again.

A:Errors resulting from XP Pro w/ SP3 reinstall

A Parity Error usually means there is a problem with the RAM sticks, or it could an incompatible driver. Download the ISO image for Memtest and burn it to a CD with IMGBurn. Then boot off of the newly created CD and run the tests with one stick of RAM in at a time.
As for your Ethernet driver, Is this a brand name computer? (HP, Dell, Gateways etc) if so, then go to the manufacturers support web site and type in your make and model and it will take you to the download driver page for your computer.

Good day...

My first post here. I'm usually pretty self sufficient at this kind of thing, but yesterday started getting a nasty BSOD message ( several actually - seems a bit different each time).

I don't recall the "original" STOP error that precipitated this whole series of events. However since that occurred I pulled my drive out of my system, replaced it with a spare drive and re-imaged that drive with a "clean" backup of OS and programs using Acronis 2009. At that point everything seemed fine, and so it should have been

[I'll remind you that I have XP with SP3 loaded over an un-updated SP2 (that is my install was XP, SP2, no updates, SP3. My copy of XP (registered) is old, pre SP1. I've not needed anything else.]

I got hit with my first stop error yesterday after everything had been cruising along just fine - it was C.....50, and I think the statement was "page fault in non paged area". I've received that since yesterday and while working through this problem I received several other messages via STOP errors as well, so that's the really confusing part, knowing what really describes the root cause - to be able to fix that problem.

I'm aware of just how vague some of this might sound, but at this point, I'm able to reimage ( from backup) my testing drive in hopes of resolving the issue, and possibly take action to correct my "working" drive once I get it all figured out. There's not a... Read more
