Internet Explorer - Access Control List

Q: Internet Explorer - Access Control List

I'm having problems with my laptop which is connected to a modem/router via a wireless card adaptor. Although it is connected I can't access the internet when I open Internet Explorer - all I get is a message which reads "Forbidden you denied access because: Access denied by access control list"

I was advised to download Hijack and have copied the file log below - but I don't know what I'm looking for! Would someone mind having a look and advising if you can see any problems?

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer - Access Control List

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have installed the BT home hub (British Telecom) There are two user accounts on my pc. I am the administrator, and have no problems using the connection to the hub (either wirelessly or by cable) at all!

I do however, have a problem with any other user been able to connect to the internet. I have tried making them and "Administrator" too, and I get the same error message:


You were denied access because;
Access denied by access control list.

My reasoning told me that it might be a software problem, as a dial up connection, and a standard broadband cable connection all worked peviously with the two "Adimistrator", and "restricted" user accounts.

I spoke to BT who decided that it was a microsoft issue...microsoft UK want to charge me ?49 to help as my XP Home Edition wasn't bought from them, it was pre-installed. I contacted Time Computers for help from them, though I am utterly dissapointed in them...I am a novice computer user, but I recognised that my ?1 per minute technical help call was ludicrous...DON'T USE IT! They spend 5 mins getting and checking your details!

1, Since when has creating a shortcut to a connection ever "lifted" an access denied?

2, I was also told to delete the accounts that were not allowed the access. They told me to click on save files, after I had started to delete the account...they got mixed up with the order of how things are done! Luckily I got it halted!

A:access denied by access control list

Read other 10 answers


I had to rebuild my PC a week or so ago and now cannot access a website that I have always been able to access before.

I keep getting a message saying "Forbidden. Access denied by access control list" but there is absolutely nothing within my access control list restricting this site.

I then went in and added the URL as an allowable site within the access control list thinking that might help and I'm still forbidden from accessing the site.

I've cleaned out my cache and ran Ad-aware to see if that would help and still nothing.

Any suggestions?

Thanks very much.

Do you have a firewall running, the ACL within the firewall might have the URL listed.

Hi All!
I'm having a problem trying to change the name of a user account in windows XP.
You can go into the control panel fine, but when you click on the
"User Accounts" in Control Panel, the page that comes up is blank.
Also there is an error that pops up saying, " The Access Control List (ACL)
Structure Is Invalid." And when you click on the "Back" or the "Forward"
Buttons, an error occurs, "g_navigator is null or not an object"
This is extremely SAD! as I do NOT want to do a reinstallation or a
paste reinstall of windows XP.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Access Denied by Control List...???

If you're on a dialup connection, the problem is usually fixed by creating a new dialup connection and deleting the old.

My Computer>Dialup Networking>Make new connection, step through the wizard to make a connection identical to the old except for what you call it. Example: If the old connection is named "Internet," name the new one "Internet2."

If that works, just delete the old connection.

If it doesn't work, start looking here.

I have a Win2000 system. I have mistakenly set the Access Control List (ACL) to deny access to the C: drive for everyone (stupid, I know). Now I am unable to access any of the programs or the porperties to change that setting back. As a last measure, I tried to reinstall Win 2000, but for some reason the system will not let me do that.

Can someone help?? Please.

Many Thanks

A:The access control list (ACL) structure is invalid

ProgramData folder is a hidden folder which contains the application's settings. This folder is separated from Program Files for better security from Windows Vista onwards. AppData folder is also a hidden folder containing user specific settings. Microsoft has made these folders hidden from users on purpose.

Only Administrators have full permissions for ProgramData and AppData folders. Ordinary users will have read only permissions so that they are prevented from making damaging changes to applications.

Checkup whether your another user is an administrator.

I suggest you leave these folders from making changes, unless you know the implications.

Hi Everyone,

I am running a Domain (using Windows Server 2008 R2), that services a variety of Windows (only) client computers. The Windows clients in question are XP Professional, Vista Business, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 8 Professional.

I would like to control access to the internet on my Domain, such that client computers are only able to visit a very select (specific) list of URLs.

Preferably I would like to be able to administer the control of URLs from the Windows Server. Furthermore I would also like to be able to allocate various clients into logical "business groups", e.g.: "Stores", "Sales Team", etc. Finally each group will be permitted access to specific URLs based on their day to day needs.

If simple administration of URLs is not possible from the Server; or if the cost of this approach is inhibitive I am open to suggests on how to limit the URL access of each client computer.

Most client computers in my network have "Administrative" privileges so control from the Server is my greatest hope. However I am able to set various client computers to "User" only privileges.

For extra background information most of my clients use a variety of browsers; therefore it is not uncommon to have Chrome, Firefox & IE all installed on a single client.

Any suggestions & / or help here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

This is a problem on my friends PC, no Internet access possible, so I saved a HijackThis log on floppy, and am now posting this thread from my own PC.

The PC had no effective AV software (a very old copy of AVG free edition not updated in 6 months), and even older version of Ad-aware, and that's it. No longer possible or able to update them, but I ran them for what it's worth (AVG found 2 Trojans and sent them to virus vault).

I took with me Coolwebshredder on floppy as well and ran that several times. A bit inconclusive, in that it said all clear once, then later said it had found and removed Googlems. Whatever, it seems clear now.

Homepage was initially set to about:blank all the time no matter how many times it was changed to Google. I sorted that by removing what I thought was some obvious BHO (sorry if that was the wrong thing to do), homepage now stays as Google but doesn't allow it to load.

When I open Internet Explorer I get this message instead of the homepage;

You were denied access because:
Access denied by access control list.

This comes up whatever web address is typed into the browser.

Here is the HijackThis log;

I just did a clean install of Vista on my Thinkpad T42 last week. I am now noticing problems with permissions -- many folders in my Documents folder show up as "read-only", and I'm having trouble accessing and modifying a lot of my own documents. If I look at the properties of a folder, it says "read-only"; I go to the "security" tab to give myself full control over the folder by checking off the top box, but when I hit "apply" it repeatedly tells me things like:
An error occurred while applying security information to
The access control list (ACL) structure is invalid.Click to expand...

I've also tried unchecking "read-only" in the folder properties and hitting "ok", but after I log in again, it goes back to "read-only".

One idea I've had is that this could be related to my using the Windows Backup Utility to back-up my data from XP before I did my clean install. Maybe something about the file permissions was stored in the .bkf file, and conflicted with something on my Vista system? Just a guess; I didn't find too much that directly related to this on Google. I tried creating a new profile in Vista and moving all the folders over there and trying the same things, but this didn't solve the problems.

Any ideas? You guys seem to really know your stuff.


A:Error: "The access control list (ACL) structure is invalid"

I suggest you remove the current ACLs and add yourself to the ACL list and apply that new list to your files.

After installing IE 7.0 on one of my computers, I am no longer able to click on one of my favorites and move it up or down the list where I would like it. When I click on it, it immediately launches the URL and takes me to the site. I have to go into "Organize Favorites" to make a change in the order in which it appears on my list. With the rest of my computers, I simply click and hold on the favorite and can move it to any position I want on the list. Is there some way to change my settings so I can do this?

A:Internet Explorer 7.0 - Favorites List

Works for me, the fact that you are launching the website suggests that you may be releasing the bouse, you need to click on the folder, keep it "clicked down" while you move the mouse up or down to relocate it.

Mind you my IE7 is part of Vista, but it worked under XP as well from memory.

This is weird. I use Firefox as my main browser (but have Internet Explorer as default browser so I can stay in touch mode in Metro Apps), but now I can't launch Internet Explorer directly!
It's not listed in the apps list, and search doesn't pull it up. Yet Programs and Features says it's still installed and I can launch it by clicking on a link on the desktop or another app.

I have it pinned to the taskbar now, but How do i bring it back into the start screen?

I was not online, trying to install a downloaded program, when Internet explorer began to open one window after the other, at the end I think I had about 30 windows trying to open. They were coming on faster than I could close them. Let's me download but goes crazy when I try to install. I save the download in a folder on the desktop, go off line and then try to install. I'm also getting a error message that I have no macromedia flash player.

While it?s hard at work developing Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft is also focusing on ensuring that Internet Explorer 8 customers get the best browsing experience possible.

The Redmond company is now offering a new update designed to kick up a notch the compatibility between IE8 and third-party websites.

KB 2447568 has been released accompanying the actual refreshes served by the software giant that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center.

As IE8 customers are used to, the update doesn?t change the actual bits of the browser but instead is focused on refreshing the Compatibility View List.

?An update is available for the Windows Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View list that is dated November 23, 2010,? Microsoft explained.

?This Compatibility View list update makes websites that are designed for older browsers look better in Internet Explorer 8.

Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility Update for the View List - Softpedia

A:Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility Update for the View List

The Softpedia links to the update at the bottom of the page all lead to an error message:

"We're sorry, but there is no Softpedia web page matching your entry.
It is possible that you typed the address incorrectly, or that the page no longer exists.
Generated on: 2010-11-27, 03:29 GMT"

But wouldn't we be getting it from Windows Update anyway?

Hi. I'm new on this site, so hello to everyone !

My problem is not a showstopper, but annoying just the same. At one time, when I clicked on the little down arrow at the r/h end of the address bar, it showed an extensive list (about 20) of the previous URLs typed into the address bar. This was great as it showed most of the sites I visit regularly. Now, however, for some reason, it only shows 5 and I can't find any way to change this. I cannot seem to enlarge the box like you can with most windows. I also have no idea why this change has occurred. Can anyone help or have any suggestions please ? Many thanks in advance.

In Internet Explorer 8, click in the menu on Favorites, then right click on the favorites list and select "sort by name". The favorites list disappear (instead of displaying it in the new sorted order). In IE7 it worked properly (the favorites list didn't disappear, instead displayed the favorites in the new sorted order). Anybody having a hint how to fix that wrong behaviour in IE8?

Wait until MS comes out with a fix?

There are too many issues with IE8 to count. I would suggest uninstalling and going back to 7 for the time being.

I am currently trying to download the latest version of Adobe Flash player from the Adobe site and just before the installation I get the below popup in IE7

"Internet Explorer blocked this site from using an activeX control in an unsafe manner"

I have tried the following:
Adjusted the security settings in IE7
Downloaded and installed a standalone version
Downloaded the latest XPP and IE updates

Can anyone think of anything else other than installing another web browser?

I'm not really sure.. The only thing i can think of is you're not on the official Adobe site?

my AVG suite has a component called Web Shield. Is this primarily the same thing as was found in Norton's Personal Firewall ??? I used to run NPF...& it had a function that would detect & disallow dangerous connections.

for example, it used to pop up from time to time w/ an 'Internet Access Control' window...during web surfing...advising me to block a high risk remote system which was attempting to access my machine. They were various Inbound TCP, UDP, IMCP & NetBIOS Services...utilizing any number of different ports.

Is this what AVG's 'Web Shield' is accomplishing ???

(I never see a warning window from AVG).

Hi, I have been having some disturbing problems with my computer recently. After running a Spy Sweeper virus scan, I discovered a Trojan/Zlob virus which I thought I took care of by removing. Now, I am having troubles with my Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, as they will randomly decide to not load anything at all or only after hitting refresh at least 20 times. Typing in a URL takes ages and 3 times so farnone of my browsers were working and when i closed the browser window my computer immediately bluescreened and crashed. When I start Windows back up and report the error, I get a report saying it is caused by an unknown driver. I looked into my Add/Remove list and found Internet Explorer Security plugin 2006 and Internet Security Addon, whihc I thought were suspicious. I googled them and found that they were indeed malware caused by the Trojan/Zlob and I read that removing is in the Add/Remove list would not solve the problem. I dont know what else there may be on my computer, but I performed each step as reccomended in the prep guide for posting a hijackThis log file and I am still having these problems.

Welcome to the BleepingComputer forum. We are currently studying your log and will have instructions for you shortly. Thank you for your patience.HijackThis is an analysis AND a repair tool. When you fix something in HijackThis, you are deleting a bad entry in the Windows Registry. In case of a mistake being made, there is a reversal for line entry deletions. HijackThis creates a new file which is a backup log of changes and you can reverse the line entry deletion. BUT...HijackThis needs a safe folder to keep these critical backup logs and a temp folder is definitely not safe as you might run Disk Cleanup and delete them. Please place HJT into ITS OWN PERMANANT FOLDER. You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e). Double click on C: If the folder is hidden, click on show the contents of this folder. Right-click on a blank space in the right column and select New > Folder Name it HJT (C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe Move HijackThis.exe into this folder. When you run HijackThis.exe from the C:\HJT folder and have it Fixed checked, it will create a backup file of modifications to use which are easily accessible if restoring any files is necessary.

A:How to disable the ActiveX control in Internet explorer 6.0

hi, There is a whole bunch of things you have to check out before trying for SP2, to avoid a waste of time:

Have you scanned for spyware lately, with good antispyware programs like Adaware and Spybot?

If you have any firewalls or other ActiveX blocking programs, they may interfere with SP2.

Got your antivirus program up to date?

Turn on Automatic Updating?

Hi everyone,

First off I'm a new user, so apologies if I do anything wrong. I've done a few searches but can't quite find what I need.

I'm trying to sort out my sister's computer for her, which has gone a bit wrong.

Computer: Acer Aspire 5338

Symptoms: Internet explorer not working (does not open, although computer thinks about it slightly before hand)
Control panel does not load (non of the icons load, and it does not respond, has to be shut down by task manager)
Same problem with the Network and Internet box
Supposedly Safari works, but I can't get it to now.

Could it be a virus? Or a complete windows failure?

Quick help would be much appreciated!

Firstly hello to everyone. Admin - Please move to correct section if in wrong place.
I checked my computer for viruses with NOD yesterday. It found a virus called Genetik trojan in WIN32. It also found problems with hg1.dll fil. It asked me if I wanted to delete it although other programs may use it. Stupidly I deleted it. Now for some reason, I can not open Internet Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer or Recycle Bin. I click on the icons in the desktop but nothing happens.
I'm assuming there is a problem that is based out of Internet Explorer since those other programs use the same type look. I've tried d/ling Internet Explorer 7 but it has not fixed the problem.
Can anyone help me out please? I am a teacher and use my computer daily in lesson - but now I've really messed it up. I can get access to the internet using Mozilla.

A:Can not open Internet Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer in xp

Hi and welcome to TSF.
HG1.dll is not a Windows file so it is likely that an infection has caused your problems. Your best bet would be to run a Deckard's System Scan but this is going to be difficult if you can't access Internet Explorer. First of all, let's see if we can correct your system files using the System File Checker. Only do this if you have SP2 on your installation disc. Otherwise you will need to slipstream SP2 to the installation disc. Follow these steps (courtesy of Chauffeur2)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow ?please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).

Hello all.
Today I installed Windows XP SP2 on my father's Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. When it finished installing and loaded up again, I could not access the control panel, internet explorer, Windows update, or My Computer. If I tried to do so, it would only show the desktop, and then appear to restart explorer, as the "Your computer is not secure" bubble would appear. I could access the internet through firefox, but whenever I would attempt to download something it would crash. Also, when I tried to install AVG antivirus, it got to about 80% and errored. Assuming that it would help, I went ahead and installed SP3 as well, however the issue is still there.
Also, I have tried to fix it in safe mode, but likewise I cannot access the features above. I do not think it is malware, because before I installed the service packs it worked fine. Also, this computer is about 5 years old, and I don't have the operating system CD anymore. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Installed XP SP2, cannot open control panel, internet explorer, etc.

I'm wondering if you didn't install SP2 (or SP3, I'm confused on this...) while the machine was infected.

Try running System Restore and go back to a day prior to doing any of these installs.

Did you have any odd symptoms prior to installing SP2 or 3 ?

It's a bit late to be doing either of these. What prompted you to do it? Was the machine having problems before ?

A:Can not open Internet Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer, etc.

Let us have a look-see.........

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.
