Enabling add-ons in IE7

Q: Enabling add-ons in IE7

I've upgraded to IE7, but keep getting advised that add-ons & Active X are not enabled. MS screen advice to close and restart IE7 makes no difference.
When I go to tools the manage add-ons button is grayed out and cannot be chosen, so I go to tools,internet options,then programs, the manage add-ons there tells me they are all enabled, but when I open any window in IE it tells me right away that add ons are disabled.

Preferred Solution: Enabling add-ons in IE7

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.)

I am new to Windows 7 and have version Home Premium. I need to enable IIS and not sure if the blue colored checkbox means. Do I need to install IIS separately and how many of the item under IIS do I need to enable? Coming from XP there was only i choice.

A:Enabling IIS

I'm assuming you're in the "Turn windows features on/off" dialogue?

The coloured square means only some of the sub-items are selected. You may need to expand the Internet Information Services item and make sure the features you need are all ticked, or just tick everything (then the top-level checkbox will change to a tick instead of a solid colour).

Hello everyone, I have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router, and I have trouble enabling WEP security. I've done it before, but with the help of D-Link customer support service.
I've done a lot of research on this, but something is wrong, either the info im looking at is for another DI router, and my router isn't there, or the info just doesnt seem right.
Thanks a lot for reading.

Trying to enable .NET 3.5, and when trying to download files from Microsoft, it tells me that it was unable to complete the download, and the check my internet, even when I have internet access. Sometimes it loads part of the way, and then gives me the same message. Ideas?

A:Enabling .NET 3.5

Randomly tried it for the 5th time and it worked. Apparently you can also install it by entering the following in the command window:

dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

But you have to replace :d with the correct drive.

Just posting in case anyone else has the same issue

-hey guys whta is the benefit of enabling SSL & TLS in web browsers?

A:Enabling SSL & TLS

It is enabled by default. You might like to check that it is. As far as I know, there's no reason why you should run a browser with it disabled. It is needed for secure communications on secure sites. Perhaps there's no need to go further than that but if you would like to learn more about the protocols, there is plenty to be found.

I've read several articles but I'm still somewhat confused about this DMA feature in device manager under Disk Drives.

I checked the DMA box under properties and couldn't reboot, had to scanreg/restore to boot. Bios option for UDMA is enabled. But what else do I have to do to set up for this? My BIOS may need an update. Would this make a diff?

A:Enabling DMA - Why Can't I?

your hard disk is already set to UDMA so if you try to make it DMA you will have to disable the UDMA (ultra DMA)

I recently formatted my harddrive to install on C:win98 and on D:winXP the problem is after the installation of win98, I had to install my via 4in1 driver that's when it started, after rebooting my machine I couldn't load into window it'll get up to the welcome screen and stay there forever. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help at all the only way was to disable DMA mode on all my driver (CD rom included) I tried the oldest via driver and also the newest one but that didn't help. Strangely that on my winXP partition it didn't have any problem at all.

I was wondering if S.M.A.R.T was enabled for my HDD.
I've checked my BIOS and have seen no options for it. (Not sure what my BIOS type is but I have a COMPAQ Presario C700t and the BIOS version is F.34
I've also tried to access the advanced BIOS (I Googled it and the only thing I've seen was to press Crtl + F1 to access the advanced menu in the BIOS, but nothing happens when I do that.)

I also see a hidden entry in my Task Scheduler under DiskDiagnostic called 'Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticResolver' and the description says:

"The Microsoft-Windows-DiskDiagnosticResolver warns users about faults reported by hard disks that support the Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) standard. This task is triggered automatically by the Diagnostic Policy Service when a S.M.A.R.T. fault is detected."

I've always had it as Disabled and I enabled it. When rebooting and viewing again, it shows it has not run. If I run it manually, it triggers DFDWiz.exe in system32 but nothing happens.

How do I know/enable S.M.A.R.T.?

A:Enabling S.M.A.R.T

as far as i know, s.m.a.r.t. monitoring is enabled/disabled with the bios. if you don't have that option, then you can't enable it. however, there is a free program that you can monitor your hdd's. but, i don't know if it requires that your system has to option to use s.m.a.r.t. monitoring.

I recently upgraded my computer (by myself : :blackeye: ). It was new installation of a video card. My old one was an Integrated NVidia that is forever onboard as far as I can tell, and the new video card is an ATI Radeon 7000. I installed it, and it seems to be working all right as far as everything goes.

I recently went to play a game, LineageII. I knew I fell somewhere between the minimum and maximum requirements, so I went to play and it told me that my AGP was deactivated, and to enable it for consistency. When I'd start the game, the screen would go black. I figured I'd better enable my AGP -- however, when I went to do so I realized I had no frickin' clue how to do it. I tried to do it through DirectX, but it's greyed out. When I tried to do it in Bios, my Bios said NOTHING about any AGP but at the same time I haven't an idea what to look for and modify thus I got really confused. I've been trying for two days now to figure something out without ruining my computer Help!

I know I run an ASUS motherboard.

Boot into Bios and make sure HDMI is enabled. Then, depending on the type of Video card you may have, there should be an Icon for the display in your System Tray next to the clock, either the nVidia Display or ATI Control Center. There you can choose to either enable mirror display or Extend your Desktop across 2 monitors. You can also access it in the Display properties in the Control Panel.

I recently got a Stop error, but my computer isn't writing any minidumps.
I think I disabled the minidump option by mistake but can't turn it back on because I can't access my system.

I can however access another Operating system that is installed on my computer, and through this i can access the files that was on the none respoding OS.

So is there a way to enable minidump on another OS without going to control panel or my computer?

You would need to change [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PCHealth\ErrorReporting] subkey
DoReport reg_dword 0x00000000 to reg_dword 0x00000001.

This could be done, apparently, using BartPE (for instance); http://windowsxp.mvps.org/peboot.htm

Hey guys. I've recently been having some issues with burning DVDs and I've come to learn (via a software support forum) that I need to enable DMA mode as it appears, according to a DVD burning log file, that PIO mode is currently enabled. In order to do that, I was told to go to Device Manager, find the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers tree, find the primary IDE Channel, and enable DMA Mode under Advanced Settings. However, I don't have an IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers tree under Device Manager because I'm using a new Dell with a SATA hard drive and only one IDE Channel. Does anyone know of an alternate way to enable DMA mode? Thanks!

Attached is a screenshot of my Device Manager. Also, posted below is a copy of the log file from my burning software that shows that my dvd burner is in PIO mode (as opposed to DMA mode).

I had a nasty Vundo/Virtumonde infection on my XP Pro SP2 system. After a week of effort and great help from some security experts I was able to remove it. However, I believe one of the tools I used to clear the infection disabled autoplay. I like having a CD or DVD start playing when I put it in the drive. I've tried enabling autoplay (on CDs only, deliberately disabled it on removable media like flash drives) using TweakUI but it doesn't seem to work. I also checked the registry for the entry that disables autoplay and it isn't present. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

A:Re-enabling CD autoplay

To change or add the necessary entry in the register, you can try this. But only do this if you're comfortable making changes in your registry. An error in your registry can have disasterous results. I recommend backing up your registry first.

Click on Start > Run, type in regedit to open the registry editor.

Navigate through the following folders.

HKEY_USERS > .DEFAULT > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies > Explorer

In the Explorer folder, double-click the "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" if present and change the value to "91"

If "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" is not present, click "Edit" from the drop down menu, select "New", select "Binary Value".

Type in "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" as the name (without quotes) and press "Enter". Press "Enter" again to access the "Edit Binary Value" interface, enter "91" as the value, click "OK", exit regedit and reboot.

You should be good to go.
