Folders Not Showing In Internet Explorer 10 Protected Mode

Q: Folders Not Showing In Internet Explorer 10 Protected Mode

Ok, this question has been asked around many corners of the Internet and these forums and I haven't found a "real" answer so I'm asking it again and hopefully seeking a final resolution to the problem.
Symptoms

When "Protected Mode" is turned On, users are unable to view some folders in the file upload dialog that they can normally view (e.g. under Documents, Pictures, etc.).When viewing the same folders in Explorer running as the same user as the Internet Explorer instance, the missing folders are viewable.Launching Internet Explorer "as an administrator" allows the user to view the missing folders (but this is not recommended due to security concerns).
Workarounds
So far, the workaround that I found was to either run some crazy tool from BleepingComputer called Unhide that resets everything on your system -- this is the sledge hammer-to-thumbtack approach. Another one was to go into Organize > Folder and
search options > View and uncheck the hide options and select the show radio option. The last one was to search for the folder in the file upload dialog, right-click the folder, and uncheck Hidden.
None of these, IMHO, are valid solutions to the real problem which is that something is special about this folder that is causing IE in Protected Mode to treat the file as Hidden.
Thoughts
The last "workaround" seems to indicate that the "hidden" file attribute is set for the file, but this doesn't appear to be true if you view the file outside of Protected Mode security. If you right-click the folder within Explorer
or you run ATTRIB, the file attributes appear normal.
What I'm thinking is that there is an extended attribute associated with this file that is not normally viewable in the file properties dialog. Similar to the "temporary" file flag that gets set with some files that causes DFSR to not replicate
them. However, when I look at the File Attributes with fsutil, both folders (one that is shown and one that isn't shown under Protected Mode) are 0x10 (which is simply DIRECTORY). I also verified the same with PowerShell looking at the Attributes
property of the directory (System.IO.FileAttributes object): the value__ is 16 which is 0x10 (DIRECTORY).
So, it seems that the process of displaying folders (and possibly files) in either Protected Mode or the common dialog for file selection uses something
other than the file attributes when determining what is displayed and not displayed.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

I am using Win 7, 64 bit with IE 8
I went into Internet Options, Security Tab and turned Protected Mode off for each of the Internet zones (I don't remember why) but then later turned Prot Mode on again for each of the zones.

But the status bar at the bottom of IE 8 window says Protected Mode is Off.

How do I get the Status to indicate properly?

1.) Launch Internet Explorer.

2.) Go to 'Advanced tab' in 'Internet Options' Pop up window.

3.) Down below 'Settings' clcik on "Restore advanced settings"

5.) Restart IE.

Since August 28th Automatic Download from Microsoft, I've been unable to print documents in Internet Explorer which concern mostly finance. This includes Intuit payroll check stubs, my bank statement, and sometimes a recipe. The webmaster at the USPS consulted about the inability to no longer do Click N Ship labels suggested Internet Explorer 8 as the villain and suggested I change browser. Should I go back to Internet Explorer 7 and if so how. Using a different browser like Mozilla's would be difficult because of my vision. I have to stick with what I know. Or should I delete the update if that is where 8 replaced 7?
If you can help please e-mail me at [email protected]
PS If I disable protected mode even for a few minutes, my computer just goes crazy with security warnings... and this doesn't work in all cases such as Click N Ship.

I'm  trying to understand how these two options work together. 
If 'Run As Administrator' is unchecked
on IE shortcut, does Protected Mode in IE Option work or not? 
If 'Run As Administrator' is checked
on IE shortcut, does Protected Mode in IE Option work or not? 
In my assumption, the Enable Protected mode in in IE internet zone only works when IE process is launched with a standard  user access token the user uses . If IE process is launched from a administrative user token (run as administrator), will this
IE Option still work if it's checked and restrict access to securable objects like system files and registries?

If I want to reduce the level of access that a malicious website might have on computer, then I can turn on Phishing filter and that takes care of this problem.
I just came to know that , I can enable IE Protected mode and that will reduce the level of access a malicious website might have on computer.

Are both these solutions used for the same purpose ? Which one is better option ?

Thanks

A:Whats difference between Phishing filter and Internet Explorer Protected Mode ?

In Protected Mode, Internet Explorer cannot modify user or system files and settings without user consent. Protected Mode requires the user to confirm any activity that tries to put something on your machine or start another program. By ensuring the user consents to these kinds of actions, the likelihood of automated or unwanted software installation is reduced. This feature also makes you aware of what a website is trying to do, giving you a chance to stop it and take time to double check the trustworthiness of the website.

Phishing is the technique of convincing a user to send personal information to a bogus (or potentially malicious) website that is designed to appear legitimate. The Phishing Filter in Internet Explorer combines a local system scanning for suspicious website characteristics with an online service.

Hope this makes sense.

From the Microsoft website: "In Protected Mode, Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista cannot modify user or system files and settings without user consent. Protected Mode requires the user to confirm any activity that tries to put something on your machine or start another program."

The first thought that comes to mind is the browser reset function that restores IE7 back to facorty defauts. This tends to clear up alot of thoses things like this that cause strange problems. You can find the Reset in the Internet Options under the Advanced tab.

A:Internet Protected mode has changed by itself!

Go to Tools / Internet Options , Security Tab.

Click on each icon, then for each icon's page, checkmark Enable Protected Mode ....
It doesn't do any harm to enable protected mode for all types of sites.

IE classifies web sites you go to, and detects whether they are local on your hard drive, on your intranet etc. and turns Protected Mode on or off accordingly. After setting the checkmark as per above, it will always be on.

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^_^

I'm having a very bizarre issue on a laptop running Windows 7. Windows explorer is showing all items as the wrong size, it's as if the math is off by a few 0s. For example an outlook file is showing up a 548 GB which clearly isn't possible. I looked up the
file on another computer and it was actually 5.48 GB. Every file on the computer shows up that way. It also doesn't matter if I'm looking at a file on the local drive or on a mapped drive, it still shows the incorrect value. I've never run into something like
this before and haven't had much luck finding anything on Google either. Has anyone seen something like this before or have an idea for how to change the math behind explorer? If that is even what needs to be changed.

As an extra note, kind of funny but even the transfer rate is buggered up, the laptop is transferring files from a mapped drive at a miraculous 522 MB/s, sure do wish my computer could move that fast.

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

Please do not post your Hijack this logs here. Due to Forum Rules we cannot assist in malware removal here. Have you tried a different browser (Chrome, Firefox etc)? When you say IE only works in Safe Mode with Networking, Do you mean you boot the computer normally and use IE (safe mode) or are you booting the computer into Safe Mode with Networking? In other words you can't boot normally?

Now all of a sudden that doesn't work and infact nothing regarding js on the page works. Not even some of the simple text link effects such as bolding on click.

I have tried:
- Reinstalling IE 7
- The website in IE on other computers and it works fine
- Setting the security settings in IE to as low as possible and also just default
- Adding the tag: <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet --> to the page
- Other browsers on this computer and it worked fine
- Set all settings in IE back to default settings
- Googling for hours

Thanks in advance!

I have just built a new computer, using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, however, I've noticed when I open Windows explorer, 3 out of 4 times it will continuously search for drives when opening up explorer and not show any drives that are installed. I've tried reformatting, using different hard drives, but the problem persists no matter what I do. I've reinstalled Windows 7 with only a single drive plugged in, tried different SATA ports, but this problem keeps coming back. The only thing I can think of is that the Windows 7 install disk is corrupted and not installing properly.

I've also noticed that once it starts searching like this, the icons wont display in any folder, although the file names will. Likewise, when trying to sort files by date, type, etc, they will not sort.

When this happens, I can easily type in C:\ to get to the drive without problem to access the drive but above problems with icons not showing, sorting, etc still is a problem.

Has anyone had this problem? Know of a way to fix this? I'm not looking forward to having to reformat again as I don't have the time to sit through and reinstall everything again after.

I'm trying to remove it by ending its process but then iexplorer.exe just keeps on showing up from time to time. Moreover, it uses up a lot of memory and then eventually slows my computer down. I have to end its process so that the computer can function faster. I scanned the computer using Bitdefender Total Security 2015, but it found nothing. The log will be posted below. Help needed. D: Thanks so much!

Hello
I have a windows vista premimum loaded laptop with internet explorer 8 installed. Everything was working fine up to a point when i had to reset the internet explorer settings to its default.

Prior to the reset, I was able to add favorites and view the favorites in my address bar asi begin to type the letters. But after the reset, this behaviour stopped.

I have tried the autocomplete path. The address bar and the favorites check box are ticked under tools > options > content > settings. I un-checked clicked ok and checked back again, just to make sure that it gets reset in the registry. But still I cannot get the favorites to display in address bar as I type.

This happened before and I followed a registry tweak which corrected the behavoiur. Unfortunately I cannot find the link anymore and I did not add it to favorite !!. Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks

A:[SOLVED] Internet Explorer Favorites not showing up !!

Ok, Looks like either no has a solution or no one has bothered to reply. Anyways, for the benefit of others who might have faced the same problem, find below the solution that I figured out.

In IE go to Tools > Internet Options > Content.
Click Settings under Auto Complete
Make sure Address Bar is ticked and so is Favorite.
But most importantly, make sure that "Use Windows Search for better results" is un-ticked.

Click OK and OK again.

Now you will be able to see favourites appearing in the address bar.

Thanks for viewing.

Hello all.
First time here and probably not the last on account of Murphy's Law.
My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (x64).
I installed IE11 with no problems.
Once completed, I rebooted but could not locate the IE desktop icon.
Inspected the Internet Explorer folder. All files seem to be there including the .exe file. After clicking on this IE11 .exe file, nothing happened.
Checked the Control Panel to ensure IE11 was in fact installed and that it was "activated." All in order.
This is a mystery as I have used previous versions of IE without any problems.
Any attempts, to resolve this glitch, will be appreciated greatly. Cheers.
