Q: READ!! Norton users/Microsoft Antispyware users.....

Hi, There seems to have been a problem with a Microsoft Antispyware update, so those of you who have BOTH Norton software, and use Microsoft Antispyware program, had better wait till the next update which will hopefully resolve this:

Preferred Solution: READ!! Norton users/Microsoft Antispyware users.....

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.)

If you're using AOL and have Norton installed and have suddenly been having connection problems, this may be the reason:

An incorrect update to Symantec's Norton security software on Wednesday blocked Internet access for some America Online users.

The issue affected AOL customers using recent editions of Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security, Symantec said in a statement sent via e-mail on Thursday. The culprit was an update to intrusion prevention software that is part of the security software, the company said.

"This update incorrectly detected traffic patterns used as part of the AOL connection as a potential risk," Symantec said in the statement. AOL has about 20 million Internet service subscribers.

As a result of the incorrect update, AOL dial-up customers lost their connection and AOL broadband users were unable to access AOL servers, Symantec said. The erroneous update was removed from Symantec's servers about seven hours after it was released, and a corrected version was posted, the company said.

Hello, 
I come across an issue. I have some powershell scripts in a folder. My demand is that i'd like to share it with remote domain users. But i don't want them to check the content inside.
So, when i set the NTFS permission for the users,  I removed the read permission only retained 'Traverse folder/execute file" permission
and "list folder/read data" permission. however, the remote users could access the folder remotely but failed to see any scripts inside the folder. just looks like the the folder is empty.
My questions is if my requirement is viable with NTFS permission.

A:Microsoft Antispyware & Norton Internet Security 2006 Antispyware Edition Compatibility?

You can install it for scanning purposes but don't use the real time protection. In other words, don't have it run when your computer starts up. This will likely cause conflicts with NIS.

Hey Guys,

If you are using Kaspersky on Windows XP, and your Blue Shift is not working, I may have a solution for you. If you go into Kapersky, go to My Security Zone and then application activity. Go to Category and then click all. Scroll down until you find everything to do with Blue Shift ( Half Life Launcher, installation etc). Right click on each of these and change the status to Trusted. The game should work now. I hope this helps I've had the problem for a while and it was driving me nuts. I'd also like to thank the user "fragger" for giving me the idea to look at Kaspersky. If your reading this, hope it helps you out buddy.

User 1 logs in and works does whatever... Doesn't log out but screensaver goes back to user screen. 
 
User 2 logs in (switching users - not logging out user 1) and gets to work. 
 
Sometime later (ie. not right away) and not at a prescribed time, the network stops working.  
 
I try to disable / enable the network adapter and the machine freezes.   Reboot fixes problem.
 
If user 1 or user 2 is the only one logged in then never a problem.
 
Anyone heard of this? 
Thanks for any help!
 

A:Multiple Windows 7 Users-Switch between Users-network stops working

When switching users, it's always a good idea to have User 1 close out any applications and documents they have open and then log out before User 2 logs in. It sounds like you have fast user switching enabled, but I'm not aware of that causing any network issues -- unless User 1 was doing something that required a network connect.
 
Check the Event Viewer for error logs from the time it froze when you tried to disable and enable the network adapter. Post the event ID and description here if you need help diagnosing the issue from the log files. Perhaps another fix is to disable fast user switching, so that users are always forced to log out before someone else can log in.

It seems that Microsoft screwed most of us, as No-IP.com users (if you use their DDNS services.) Microsoft seized (legally, but unethically), a bunch of domains that were registered to No-IP.com, which means that if you are using their services, your server/computer may not be receiving the traffic it should.

End of Support for AVG 6.0
Grisoft announces the end of support for AVG version 6.0 effective on December 31, 2004 for technical reasons. This version has been available since 1999. It's structure does not allow for further improvements planned for version 7 nor improvements of detection techniques expected to come in the future.

End of support means we will no longer provide program updates or Virus Database updates for version 6.0 and therefore, within days, this version will not protect against new virus outbreaks!

Current AVG 6.0 users should upgrade to AVG 7.0. Information on upgrading to version 7.0 can be found at http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_upgrade.php.
- October 25, 2004 -

A:AVG users please read.....

Also to head off any confusion....AVG7.0 FREE Version will be offered to replace the older 6.0 version. So it's still FREE..but you'll need to upgrade to version 7.0 when it's released in Nov.

working with vista homeprem sp2 32bit here. ran a quick avast scan a few minutes ago, it caught some small-time junk in the temporary internet files (which were purged easily enough), but it also pointed out C:\users\all users as "the system cannot find the path specified". so I open up windows explorer and try to go there. cue the "refers to a location that is unavailable" error message. now, I don't usually need to prod around in there so I'm not familiar with what normally happens, but I know vista loves to have a bunch of directories displayed that are shortcuts it uses for people who leave "hide protected OS files" checked (I don't, I want to see what's where) which really ought to not be shown when you're not hiding stuff but I digress, that's for MS to be groused at after win8 flops.

Hi everyone,

I am the web masters of a local snowmobile club and our new website is having a few problems with printing. Please take a look at the site, http://www.strathroysnoblizzards.com/Strathroy_Sno-Blizzards/index.html

As you can see it has a black background which when printed on my Mac OS X has no problems with printing (it leaves out black background and keeps the text and images) and prints everything.

The problem is that one of our members are ticked that they can not print the site because of the black showing up above the text and images and I really don't want to change the background because it look good the way it is, so is there any way to change to printer settings or some ideas for him to help him out with this problem.

Second problem is that out of 4 pages, 2 are blank with nothing on it and there is suppose to be text and images on those pages, anyway how to fix this too?

Thanks Guys

Customers running Windows XP SP1 must migrate to Windows XP SP2 over the next 3 months or they will lose incident support.

What is the best way to share execution priviledges between limited users, power users, and administrators?

Say an application has already been installed by a higher priviledged user type, and a limited user cannot execute it - e.g. an ISP login software, or Spy Sweeper. Note: ISP login software lacks profile, so I suppose I could just create that, however, Spy Sweeper is a head scratcher.

Should the application be uninstalled and reinstall under All Users? How do you install an application to allow All Users to use it?

I have already tried to use the "Run As" right-click Properties w/Shift key approach and that does not work.

Is there an approach with regard to local security policy that would do what I want to do? How is that done? Or, is Access Control List the way to go?

Hello Andy,

Thank you for contacting Symantec Online Technical Support.

From your message, I understand that you are facing issue with IE6 Popups saying AdWare or Spyware is trying to infiltrate your system.

Andy, please be aware that this can happen if Adware/ Spyware/ Dialer/ Hack Tool/ Remote Access program/ Joke Program or Security Risk is installed on your system. Please note that Norton AntiVirus will only detect the threats, which is installed on your system. It will not remove or repair them. You must follow IE6 warnings also inorder to get full protection. IE6 and Norton finds AdWare or Spyware in different ways.

How to disable the Firefox .NET Framework Assistant installed by MS.
[COLOR=DarkBlue]
In a recent update of the .NET framework Microsoft silently installs an extension to your Firefox browser if it is found on your system. This extension enables websites you visit with Firefox to silently install software on your computer, thus injecting the most serious flaw of Internet Explorer into Firefox.

Microsoft installs this extension in such a way that it cannot be removed directly by the user -- it is listed in the Extensions list but Uninstall is disabled.

This is not a bug -- this is the intended functionality of the Firefox extension, probably to enable Microsoft to install software on your machine when you visit their websites with Firefox instead of IE. This extension introduces a serious security vulnerability to Firefox. It should be removed immediately, using the instructions below.

There seems to be a problem with the updates from Adobe for Adobe Photoshop 7.0. It seems that the updates never finalize and makes Photoshop be non-responsive. (It make be something to do with their severs, they are having problems there.)

If you are in this situation, the best way to fix this is take out your internet connection and then start Photoshop. It should then say that it could not update because there is no connection. OK that and then go to Preferences > Adobe Online and change the check updates to Never. This will prevent Photoshop from updating.

For those users that do not get the problem, it highly suggested that you change the update checking as well to save you the hassle later.

A:Hiding Users' files from Guest Users

OK this appears to be a simple permissions issue.

go to your root folder on the D: drive and right click the folder and select properties.

on the security tab you should see a list of those who have access to the folder - Make sure that your user has full rights and remove all rights to the "everyone" user group. This when OK'd should xascade down to all files and folders contained in the folder

If you wish you can adjust the rights available to any other particular user on the system - Make sure that you do not remove or change any rights given to system or administrative users unless you fully understand the result

When we access these one users text is too small to read but it can be enlarged each time it is accessed, the other users sc reen is too large and it cannot be made smaller. I want nboth users to have normal sized text and I want it to be fixed soi that it will not change.

A:one users screen is too small to read anothers is too big.

Hi sallye, Welcome to EightForums.

If you are using Windows 8.1 Pro this setup is very easy to enforce. You can use Group Policy to disable the page zoom function.

First, you'll want to open the Internet Explorer and press CTRL + 0 to reset the default zoom size for each user.

Next, open Group Policy. To do this Press + S, type: gpedit.msc, click gpedit.msc to open Group Policy editor.

In the left pane expand Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer

Locate, Turn off page zooming functionality > set it to enabled then click Apply. Restart the computer.

During the next few days, I will be updating and testing my 2 guides for Windows Vista SP2:

If you are still a die-hard dedicated user of Windows Vista SP2, both of these guides will be very useful to you.

Stay tuned.

I just got upgraded to Vista and now need to get an anti-virus software for Vista. But the stores has run out of Norton Antivirus 2007 so I am thinking of Norton Internet Security 2007 (3 users). Does NIS 2007 works on Windows Vista? One confusing aspect is Vista has a built-in firewall, will this clash with the firewall from NIS 2007?

Perhaps, the most important question is does Norton Internet Security 2007 works well in Windows Vista?

Thanks for any advice.
 

A:Norton Internet Security (2007 - 3 users)
