Dot defender blocks my requests (sometimes)

Q: Dot defender blocks my requests (sometimes)

This occurs at Arrisi.com. Arris is Motorola's cable modem sub-company, and is the official site for info on specific Motorola and Arris modems. Sometimes pages load fine, sometimes a page gives me the message " dotDefender Blocked Your Request" 
 
Reloading the page yields the same message, but navigating to the same page from a google search seems to work fine- i.e. page displays and no such message.
 
Also, sometimes pages at Tom's Hardware will give me a "Suspicious Activity Detected!" warning, and require me to enter a captcha in order to see a page.
 
I have Norton Security Suite, and scan fairly regularly with MBAM. I am certain my drives and OS are malware free. Is this anything to worry about?

Preferred Solution: Dot defender blocks my requests (sometimes)

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.)

Last night around 1 or 2 in the morning, I was looking at websites like alluc.org. I searched for "onclickvideo" in google. I found the website that I was looking for and went to it. It was onclickvideos.com. Somewhere between that homepage and one page that I clicked on there, my browser started acting really weird. I was using firefox. Firefox started to crash everytime I re-opened it. Then I got a fake security center result saying that there is a Trojan detected. It gives me this button to click to "fix" the problem. When I click it, it takes me to defender-review.com and that webpage tells me to download the software. This is the only webpage that firefox will open without crashing. I have NOT downloaded that software. While that page was up, I opened a new tab and searched google to see if it was legit, which it was not. Firefox still wasn't acting right, so I did what the people in the forums I found said, which was to go to the AppData folder and go through there seeing what was created around the same time that it first started acting up. I went into safe mode and did this. When I restarted, firefox would not open at all. It tells me that there is already a window of firefox running but that it is not responding and to either close that window or restart. I went to Task Manager, and it doesn't show anything firefox running.This is what Task Manager showed.I tried to get HijackThis, but it said "Your current internet security settings... Read more

You can safely run Adobe flash player. That warning is just to let you know that this add-on was already there and asks you to confirm that you want to run it.

I suspect some kind of phishing bug but I am not sure what might cause this issue.
In the 17 years since I started using a computer I have gotten only a few requests to log into the server when I opened my email client. It has been more than a decade since I saw one.
In mid October this happened randomly and I ignored it. Instead I opened my properties folder and checked each tab and closed it. Then I was able to get my email.
After that I think the next day maybe a couple of days later it came back only this time it wouldn't let me get my email when I checked the properties. I ran an MSE scan and it seemed to fix the problem.
Then a week later the same thing happened. This time checking properties and doing an MSE scan had no effect. I was able to send a test email but I did not receive it. I ran an ESET online scan. This seemed to "fix" whatever was causing the log in request. Since about 28 Oct until today there was nothing then this morning it has come up again with a twist; When I check the properties folder my user name and password lines were blank!
I am running an MSE scan and ESET is on deck to run right after. I feel like I am getting a bug from somewhere that is raising a false need to log in so that my password can be gotten. IDK ?????

Please read this carefully before posting.
The idea:
This thread is meant to collect user's request of new features to add to Windows 7, or to bring back features that were taken out since XP / Vista, and are sorely missed.
The idea is to create a list that MS might want to take a look at.
For this to have a chance, we need to keep the thread clean, and free of unnecessary comments and discussions.
So we need a set of rules.
The rules:


   Information

1. No rants, no debates or discussions, no personal comments, no reactions to other posters, no MS bashing, period!

2. Maximum of 10 lines. So make sure your post is clear and to the point.
One or two words more won't matter, but don't push your luck.

3. Posting of screenshots is allowed to clarify your point.

4. No utopian requests, keep it reasonable.

5. Double posts and posts with features already requested by others will be deleted.

6. Adding a reason why you want it is allowed, but remember the 10 line rule.

7. If a user posts a problem that can be fixed, no help allowed other than saying poster should open a thread about his problem.


   Warning

Not complying with these simple rules, will get your post removed.


   Information

1. Please examine the list to see if your request is already there.

2. Please think about what you're requesting is a good thing for less knowledgeable users.

It's time for me to replace my old HP 200LX, and I can't seem to find a PDA that is suitable. Here are my search criteria:

I am 50 & my eyes aren't as good as they used to be.
I need a decent sized display (Palm Pilot types are
too tiny).

Besides the usual PDA (calendar, contacts, etc.), I want
to be able to run some Excel spreadsheets. My spread-
sheets can be robust, so I prefer a landscape display,
not the portrait shape of Palm Pilot type PDAs). Bonus
points for syncing up with my Quicken on my PC.

Connecting & syncing with my Windows PC is a good
idea. This device should augment my PC, not replace it.
(I do use MS Outlook).

My handwriting is horrible -- I need a keyboard, but
the keyboard can be small -- I don't mind hunting &
pecking on the PDA. I also don't mind navigating with
arrow keys.

Ideally, I'd like something about the size of a paperback book. I don't want a full sized laptop -- laptops are a bit big & too expensive. Finally, it would be nice if the device had modern conveniences, like ability to play MP3 files, surf the net, play some basic games, etc. I also wouldn't exclude from consideration any PDA / cell phone combination (although I don't have/use a cell phone yet).

Thanks in advance.run some Excel spreadsheets

I want to be able to view the connections (net watcher) to any given computer on the network from one 98 machine. It was easy to set this up on all of the 98 machines, how can I view this information on the nt boxes from the 98 machine. When I try to access the nt machines with net watcher it tells me that the computer does not accept remote requests. If this is not possible can you tell me how to view this information on all of the nt boxes from one nt box.

Is there a place that we can leave feedback or requests for the ATA product?

There are a few things i would like to see changed.  

1.  Alerting
We get alerts during backup windows that the ATA cant keep up but it doesn't seem to have anything to do with CPU or RAM.  In addition, we have no users in the system at that time so i find it very hard to believe
that this is true.  I would like to set time windows where we can exclude these alerts or maybe thresholds where if it is seeing that for 5 minutes, 10 minutes etc.
2.  Email Audience
I would like to be able to say these types of emails go to this distribution list and those go to another so that we keep the number of alerts the team gets down a bit.  
3.  Suspicious Activity
When we get an alert warning of suspicious activity and click the link to take a look, the first thing you have to do is answer whether it is normal or not, but we cant click the link to see the suspicious activity unless
we open the excel file in the email.  This should be adjusted.

I certainly appreciate your position. Indeed you are correct that I originally posted a request for assistance on another forum. After getting a reply from another user on that forum and nothing from the moderators for 2 days I decided to post on your site/forum...thinking that the user reply had suggested to the moderators on the other site that I was already receiving assistance.I have since received a request for my HJT log and info files from the other site so I will rely on them for assistance, My apologies for any confusion this may have caused. It was not my intent. More it was my misunderstanding of how these forums work.Thank you again and again, my apologies for duplicate postings. It was not my intent to over-tax either forum. I was simply getting impatient and after some reading thought erroneously that the user reply to my original post suggested to them that I was already receiving assistance when I was not.

I set up family safety for my 12 year old daughter, and ticked all the apps she can use freely. Every time she logs on the computer it pops up little messages telling her to request permission to use all the apps that I didn't give her access to. It's very annoying, so how do I stop it, other than the obvious but unhelpful step of letting her access everything?

A:Permission requests

Hello Andy, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The apps that are checked are the ones that are blocked instead. Only the unchecked ones are allowed.
Family Safety App Restrictions - Set and Manage in Windows 8
When you get a request to allow an app and either allow or block it as per the tutorial below, you and the user should not see the messages for that app anymore.

Hope this helps for now,

I have a small network (12 users) running SBS 4.5. Clients are Win2K Pro and Office2K Pro. When a users creates a new meeting request and invites some (but not all) users, the meeting request is received by ALL users.

I suspect that it is something to do with delegation, but am unsure where to start looking.

Any guidance would be welcome. Thanks
 

A:Meeting Requests going to all users

I found this under the help in Outlook 2002

Troubleshoot Delegate Access
This feature requires Microsoft Exchange.
Viewing another person's folders
I can't see an appointment in another person's Calendar when I'm the delegate.

When you view days in the Calendar folder, you can't see the details of an appointment, but the free/busy time shows that the time is busy. This is because, even though you have delegate access permission to the other person's Calendar folder, if the other person created an appointment and marked it private, you cannot view the appointment unless they have given you permission to do so. Have the person who granted you permission clear the Private check box on the Appointment tab in the appointment, or have the person modify your permissions so that the Delegate can see my private items check box is selected.

I receive meeting requests and responses that my delegate should get.

The person you set up as your delegate might have been deleted from the Microsoft Exchange Global Address List, or there might have been an internal rule-handling failure on the server. To reset your delegate's permissions, click the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Delegates tab.

The Send meeting requests and responses only to my delegates, not to me check box might not be selected. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Delegates tab.

I'm a delegate, but I can't open the other person's folders... Read more

Whenever I plug a device into a USB port it says cannot proceed without formating the device, even though the device (photo card, flash drive, etc) always worked before. I don't dare format the device because I don't want to lose the information stored. I've tried everything I can find and still cannot solve the problem. Sure do need help.
Operating system is Windows 7, 64 bit pro. Exployer 9. Every thing else seems to be working OK except after updating my drivers the other day Exployer 9 seems to have problems downloading many graphic displays from websites. May be entirely different problem not connected to USB problem as that started more recently. USB is my main problem. I work from home so I'm usually around the computer much of the day or evening.

Using Outlook Web Access to access an Exchange 2003 server: the server does not have a security certificate, so when IE first touches the site, it issues a security warning. I click through that and log in. Nothing new there. However, I am now having a problem reading messages. Every time I open one, I get ANOTHER security warning that I have to click through. That is new in the last month or so. I launched a Virtual Machine of XP that is not current with its Windows Updates. It works as expected.

Does anyone know which recent update from MS might be causing this problem. It is really annoying.

Hi folks

Just a quick question ..... Zone Alarm has asked me whether or not to allow these two items access to the Internet. A Motive Cursor Daemon and NetBios. The Net Bios request has come up a couple of times, and I've been denying it so far, on the basis that denying it doesn't seem to be causing any problems. But I'd still like to know whether to deny or allow permanently. The Daemon is a newbie

As always, thanks for your help

A:Zone alarm requests ...

The Daemon program should be some kind of virtual drive program (if I'm not wrong). I would Deny access to both. To avoid this nuisance, check the box at the bottom to remember the settings. If anything, you can go back into ZoneAlarm and change the permissions again if needed.

Only allow access to programs that you know. If anything goes wrong, try giving the program access (it may be valid).

I am running Windows Vista and Norton 360. After a Norton scan failed to turn up anything, I tried to use Malwarebyte's anti-malware, but that too failed to find anything.

Every time I try to use Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome doesn't respond. The frequent notices are annoying and Internet Explorer keeps going into offline mode.

Help would be greatly appreciated, I tried to do the scans requested by the forum, tell me if i've done anything wrong. Thank you in advance.
