Q: IE9 can't restore default internet security. Keeps reverting to custom settings.

After I change the setting to default, when I close and reopen IE9 the settings are back to custom which I never changed to begin with. I know I have a virus because SUPERanti spyware catches and removes up to 30 at every scan and I am being redirected to google when I try to do searches of certain things to get answer's to this problem. Iam using windows 7.Thank you for helping.

Preferred Solution: IE9 can't restore default internet security. Keeps reverting to custom settings.

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.)

My computer suddenly stopped detecting my webcam, and in trying to solve the problem, I deleted the driver. I cannot find any place online where I can restore the driver (a Bison NB Pro built into an MSI laptop). I'm tempted to restore the computer to its default settings, but I'd like to know first if that will restore the camera's driver.

Does anyone know if this will work?

I hope someone can help me work this out, it's driving me crazy!
I'll try to explain it in as few words as possible!
There is a website we need to access on which we're having trouble getting some of the buttons to display.  In short it works when the internet zone is set to "Medium" but not when it's "Medium-High" (I have added it to trusted sites
but in properties it shows as "Unknown Zone (Mixed)" so seems to use the "Internet Zone" settings.)
I am trying to track down which security setting is causing the issue.  To do this my plan was to make a note of all the settings that differ between Medium and Medium-High.  However if I set it to medium-high and manually change all the settings
to be identical to medium it still doesn't work... yet if I use the "Reset to: Medium" option at the bottom it does work!  This doesn't make any sense to me.
Are there other hidden stetting affected by the "Reset to" option that I can't change manually.
Any help would really be appreciated!  Thanks!

This isn't a serious problem, but it is annoying since it has never happened before and I'm used to having a Win XP custom desktop.

Anyway, I can't think of anything new that I've done to my computer as of late except install Spybot and other spyware detecting programs (Hijack This!, etc.) but now, whenever I restart or turn off my computer, my custom icons revert to default windows icons.

By this I mean:

My Computer
My Documents
My Network Places
Recycle Bin (full)
Recycle Bin (empty)

I can normally customize these by clicking right clicking on the desktop > Properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Change Icon

But, just as of this week, they have begun to revert back to the boring default windows icons.

I'm sure this is a simple problem but I can't for the love of God figure out how to fix it.

Any suggestions would be incredibly appreciated.

Before editing the register, you should always back it up, but that doesn't help you now. Your best chance to get what you're calling default settings are to go back to the earliest restore point and see if it works.

Hi all

New user here. I'm pretty good with Windows and computers in general, but can't figure out this new problem. I started worked from home recently, and find myself easily distracted by going online (facebook, etc) or going through my personal files on my computer.

I download an app called Cold Turkey which works well for blocking websites and programs I shouldn't be using during work hours. This is great.

To block myself from my personal files, I installed another hard drive to save my work files on. Then I created a standard user (my work account) and blocked it from accessing my personal hard drive. (My C: drive is separate SSD). I then made another standard user for my personal desktop, and used the parental settings to not allow me to login to that account during work hours. I let my wife create a password for the admin user, which I am not allowed to know, and I only change settings with her letting me into the admin user.

In summary, as it stands:
work user: standard, no access to personal drive
personal user: standard, restricted to login during non-work hours only
admin user: full rights, only my wife knows the password

Now, the problems. I can't install new software under my work user or my personal user without my wife being home to insert the password. This is annoying and unnecessary and sometimes I need to install something for work and I have to wait until later when she's home.

Does anyone know how to go about restoring WMP 64-bit to default settings. One used to be able to roll back to WMP 10, then reinstall 11. But that is apparently not an option anymore. Also not an option, so please spare me the posts, is a system restore; the problem occurred too long ago.

Here's what is going on. I used to be able to click on any VOB file in a DVD folder, and WMP would play the DVD. Somehow I broke that ability, messing around with codecs or settings or who knows what. So I want to go back to square one as far as WMP goes without having to take all of Vista with me.

So I want to know if there?s any way to just restore the default values/settings for Clear Type?

I have looked everywhere here and elsewhere...there are a lot of great tutorials and other posts...but I can only find one set of directions for my purpose and following them is NOT working.

The left hand side of my Windows 7 Premium Home 64 bit start menu is completely blank (why or how I am not sure)...I have repinned a couple of programs just to see if I could populate it again, which I can.

So far I have:
1) Control Panel - Start Up - Customize - Restore default settings - Apply - OK
This has consistently not worked.

2) ...Customize - check/uncheck options - ... store and display recently opened each checked - Apply - OK
Again, not worked.

...........restarted all times

3) I have seen a great number of interesting tutorials and posts, but nothing that captures this problem, the opposite of most queries.

I'm wondering if I have to set up a new user account? and switch settings for the accounts? i.e. account profile corrupted? (How does this even happen?)

Anyone with any other ideas how I might restore the start menu default settings besides the obvious (that should work!!) Customize option, I would be greatly appreciative.

I messed up my windows 8.1 pro theme and settings. Windows Title bar text is gone instead there's white blurry box as caption. And under folder option>view>always show menus, if the box checked or not menubar always stays visible.

The things i did to get in this position took few days and i don't know when the problem started but my guess is win7 transformation pack. Please check the steps below,

First i installed UltraUXThemePatcher_2.5.11, Aero Glass - Win8.1 - 1.3.1, and couple of custom themes, It was working perfectly for days.
Then i tried 7tsp_GUI_v0.4_B(2015) for icons but instead i used a transformation pack of windows 7, but restored it.
Title bar got messed up then i tried UXTheme Multi-Patcher 13.1, UxStyle to fix but ended up unistalling/reinstalling all of these multiple times from scratch, I also use OldNewExplorer v1.1.5.1, Shell32_Patch_Setup_v1.6 since windows installation but again reinstalled because of this mess. Then the menubar problem occured, stays always visible.

I was unable to find the solution online, tried couple of command in cmd > sfcscan, dism etc but no luck.
I tried opening local admin account and it's fine there, no messed up title bar and no menubar. Sure i can move to there but it feels a bit hassle to change every settings of windows and hundreds of softwares again.

Unless you're signed into your Microsoft account, nothing will be lost though the syncing. You can change the sync data by simply changing whatever, it'll sync up. It doesn't save to your puter, it saves the data to a cloud.

I would say refreshing would help, but if you're having issues with metro app, I've had success running sfc /scannow in command prompt.

My computer was acting up. I had a lot of files, and it was eating up almost permanently "30+%) of the physical memory, even with everything but required files closed.

http://i820.photobucket.com/albums/zz121/japika/ComputerSpecs.jpg

I was hoping a system restore to factory defaults would fix it, but now I am getting some strange issues.

The Physical Memory usage is just as high.
There is one svchost.exe (netsvcs) that is eating up a lot of memory (113,000 KB working set).
DWM.exe is also ~113,000 KB commit but only 77,500 Working set.

It is running just as slow as it was before the restore. In fact it seems to be running a little slower.

What is strange is, in that image I showed you, it lists 3gigs of memory and a 32 bit system.

I have 4 gigs of memory (it showed that before the system restore) and 64 bit system. When I did the restore, it said it was installing the 64 bit system....

I am at a loss...

The computer is a little old (at least 2 (maybe 3) years).

Bad memory? Would investing in some new memory sticks be worth while?
I really don't want to buy a new computer...

Quick addendum
I have yet to install any of the microsoft updates.

I am going to uninstall the included programs that I will never use like Napster..., search and install the updates, then shut down the computer and pull out, 'clean' and reinsert the ram chips, to see if there is any effect.

I'm trying to reset this computer back to its default security settings due to the fact it got owned by a virus.

I've gotten the trojan off the computer, but it set a bunch of policies on the computer and now I can't run/install quite a few programs. It would be much easier if I could just edit the group policies via gpedit.msc but since its XP Home it doesn't have it built in.

I went through all the places in the registry I thought the policies would have been set but I couldn't find anything.

What I'm trying to do now is reset the computer back to its default security settings by going to Run and typing MMC. When the console pops up, I click File, then Add/Remove Snap-in and click Add, and your supposed to add Security Configuration and Analysis, but I don't have that option to select from the menu. If I could add this in I should be able to just load the setup security.inf and reset the computer back to its default settings.

I've tried quite a few other things today but I am starting to run out of options. Any help would be awesome thanks!

A:Help restoring default security settings for Windows XP Home.

You could try running SDFix. As a malware scanner I think it is quite out-of-date, however it will reset a lot of the registry items back to their default value as part of the scan.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/131299/how-to-use-sdfix/

(windows 7) I accidentally messed up the security settings in the "Default Folder" (a shortcut?) of the Users folder.
I removed administrators permissions , that caused my pc to be unable to restore to previous restore point correctly. However, I was able to re-add the admin permission and everything now is fine.
Yet I need help here.
1 could anyone post screenshots of the default "default folder" security settings? I need to set it back to the default one even though now it works fine.
2 why the hell does that folder NOT HIDDEN? Are yours not hidden as well? Of course the option to hide all system file is checked on my pc. The only reason I messed with that folder is because I thought it was just a normal folder and not a system folder. Anyway to get it back to be invisible?
Thanks for helps in advanced. And I don't want to go to Microsoft supports because they always give robotic replies with no helps at all.

Hi Everyone

I am having trouble locating where the default settings for internet explorer 11 is stored.
By that I mean when you go to press the reset button in the advanced tab - where is it pulling the default settings from?

IE keeps enabling "Display intranet sites in compatibility View" when I press reset button.

Thanks

Ben

Hi,

Hope someone can help.

I have a user that needs to download files on IE, however the security settings don't allow him and need to manually changed each time. Because the user is logging into a domain I think it resets back to the default settings.

Is there any way to change the default settings in IE to prevent this from happening.

It's on Windows 2000 Professional using IE 6.

Cheers in advance,

Paul

Hiya and welcome

I've moved you to Web and Email for more response

As this sounds like a network issue, have you tried the System Administrator, as they may have set up the restrictions for a purpose.

I just finished typing in all my IP and DNS settings in the TCP/IPv4 Properties and my port was forwarding fine. However, once I restart my computer, the TCP/IPv4 settings default back to 'Obtain an IP address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS Server address automatically'. Any ideas why that might be?
Many thanks.

Welcome to the forum vangoose,

If you search for TCP with the search function, higher up on this page, you may find a solution to your problem. This one appears similar but there may be other ones too.

Can anyone help?

I have always used IE without any problems until a few days ago. I have a BTYahoo a/c & every couple of weeks have to sign in to verify my password.

Now every time I try, it briefly leaves the sign in page before immediately returning to it. It rests on the new page so briefly, merely a flicker that I don't have time to read what it says but I have seen ' browser settings' (I think).

My question is if I ask IE to return to default settings, will that solve the problem? Thanks.

Kieg.

A:[SOLVED] Internet Explorer Default Settings

Have you changed any IE settings lately? When entering your password, be sure the user account is correct and check the keep me signed in box. Make sure the sign in page is fully loaded and use the Yahoo "Enter" with a single mouse click. To see if the problem is in your box, try getting in from another computer.
