Preferred Solution: New AOL security feature

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 had to reinstall windows Vista Business on 2 computers (different specs) this weekend, the install disk already contained SP2 and i just installed dotnet 4.5.1 after the clean install followed by all the patches from winupdate. Everything great, no error, no issues, no nada.

Problem is i cant run any .exe or merge any .reg files from external disks or usb jump drives, is it a security feature or a bug caused by windows updates, since I dont remember this happening when I used Vista like 6 years ago, and I really used Vista a lot.

Thanks a lot guys!

A:Vista security feature?

Do you have the same problem when you right click the .exe and select run as administrator?

As we known, MS Internet Explorer has a special feature called “AutoComplete”, it can remember certain details entered on web forms, such as username and password. Let’s talk about how to do this feature first.
Referring from: http://www.mediacollege.com
Title: How to Remember Names & Passwords in IE (AutoComplete)

Go to the Tools menu on IE and select Internet Options.

A window will open like the one below. Click the Content tab, then click the AutoComplete button.
In the AutoComplete Settings window, check (or uncheck) the options you would like to use.

Although this feature will help you saving a lot of time on surfing the Internet, here we talk about the security. Do you think it is security? At this time, I’ll say no, because some unauthorized users can also login any forms with these information you saved on your computer. So my opinion is that you should uncheck the AutoComplete feature or use some third-party tools, such as JJSoft IntelliLogin, IE Login, and Smart Login etc.

You can find these tools on:

Executive Summary

Microsoft is aware of a security feature bypass vulnerability in Secure Channel (Schannel) that affects all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. Our investigation has verified that the vulnerability could allow an attacker to force the downgrading of the cipher suites used in an SSL/TLS connection on a Windows client system. The vulnerability facilitates exploitation of the publicly disclosed FREAK technique, which is an industry-wide issue that is not specific to Windows operating systems. When this security advisory was originally released, Microsoft had not received any information to indicate that this issue had been publicly used to attack customers.
We are actively working with partners in our Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP) to provide information that they can use to provide broader protections to customers.
Upon completion of this investigation, Microsoft will take the appropriate action to help protect customers. This may include providing a security update through our monthly release process or providing an out-of-cycle security update, depending on customer needs.

Mitigating Factors
A server needs to support RSA key exchange export ciphers for an attack to be successful.

Please see the Suggested Actions section of this advisory for workarounds to disable the RSA export ciphers. Microsoft recommends that customers use these workarounds to mitigate this vulnerability.
Read more here.... Read more

A:Vulnerability in Schannel Could Allow Security Feature Bypass



Suggested Actions
Apply Workarounds
Workarounds refer to a setting or configuration change that does not correct the underlying issue but would help block known attack vectors before a security update is available.
Disable RSA key exchange ciphers using the Group Policy Object Editor 

so, what can I do if my version of windows lacks the requisite group policy editor?

Article on enhancing Win 10 security

Nifty new feature that comes with Win 10 1903

How to Enable the Windows 10 Tamper Protection Security Feature


With the release of the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, Microsoft introduced a new security feature called Tamper Protection that protects security settings for Windows Defender antivirus from being disabled by malware or third-party programs.

When enabled, Tamper Protection will only allow Windows Defender related settings to be changed when done through the Windows Security settings screen. If a program, such as malware, or even PowerShell tries to change security settings or Microsoft Defender preferences, Tamper Protection will block the settings from being modified.

Due to this, Tamper Protection is an integral part of the Windows 10 security environment and should be enabled by all users for increased security and protection from malicious programs. Click to expand...

Directions follow in the article on how to enable.

edit: I just checked mine and found it was already enabled.

Hello everyone. I just got a new laptop running Vista Home Premium x64, and it's my first experience with both Vista and an x64 OS.

I've changed the security settings in IE7 to a custom level, and now I get the notification bar saying "Your current security settings put your computer at risk. etc." I know this can be disabled via gpedit.mcs but of course Vista Home doesn't include that feature. So, a couple questions.

Nobody here seems to know much about getting GPedit to work in Vista Home, so I won't even touch that. However, I did see mention of the Microsoft speadsheet that lists all the various group policy settings and their corresponding registry entries. I found the "Disable Security Settings Check Feature" entry, but now I'm not sure what to do with it.

HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Security!DisableSecuritySettingsCheck
HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Security!DisableSecuritySettingsCheck

I can navigate to the Microsoft folder in regedit, but that's where the trail ends. Do I need to create a key or something? I don't have much experience with the registry, and I really want this notification bar gone. Help please?

cheers everyone!

A:Disable Security Settings Check Feature && GPEdit

Hello mousetopher. You probably allowed something in the security settings that you should have just set to prompt. Scripts, Activex, something that will tolerate nothing beyond prompt. Allowing anything unsigned more permissions then prompt will set off that warning. Reset them to default and then your security warnings should disappear.

Hope it helped. If not I probably read it wrong.

What security feature disallows applications from loading DLLs from their own directory?

I have two DLLs named ws2_32.dll and wsock32.dll. I also have an application that i want to utilize these two dlls rather then the ones in system32 but it apears that it doesn't. I ran a dependency scanner and found that in fact the application does load these two DLLs rather then the ones in system32 folder.

How i know its not working: the dlls are suppose to make a log file. It succeeded in making the log file on winXP but not Win7.
I found some one else having same problem but with vista but that could be fixed by doing the following:

'set the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\DevOverrideEnable" to 1" '

However, i can't find the DevOverrideEnable field in my win7 registry. so upon the suggestions of some friends i added the field in manually and set the value that didnt work either.

What i have tried:
On Admin account
Run as Admin
Set compatibility to xp
take ownership
turn off all security features that i could get my hands on

all of that and no luck please advise.

Thank you,

Microsoft has suspended the "Attach-Photo" feature in Hotmail as a result of security concerns.
Webmail users can still add photos as attachments to Hotmail messages, just not in the same way as before. Microsoft expects to restore the suspended feature by the end of September.

Microsoft spoke about the recent suspension in postings to the Windows Live blog here and help pages here on Thursday.

Redmond explains the feature was suspended after testing unearthed a security glitch involving the interaction of its feature with IE.

I have a trial version of ESET Smart Security Premium installed which has dedicated banking and payment protection.
I have noticed that other software such as Kaspersky, Bitdefender,Comodo,F-Secure all have similar elements. Do these additional features actually give more protection ? An IT consultant friend says that these features are mainly 'cosmetic' . Is this so ?

Would welcome further advice and recommendations please, thanks.

Apparently a legacy shell extension was not playing nice. Hopefully I repaired that).

I use IE9 for a lot of browsing and sometimes I inadvertently click the 'Open in a new window' rather than 'open in a new tab' which then produces an offset for the new browser window. Since my browser window is not full screen (I use gadgets on the right-hand side) this often results in the new window overlapping the gadgets and what is worse is that when I close the browser it retains the shifted location on reopening - even having closed all windows or tabs. I haven't bothered searching for a solution for this as I try to be careful but it is really annoying. Am I missing a really simple tweak to stop this behaviour?

A:Annoying IE feature?

You can grab the tab and bring it over to connect with the previous IE window. You sort of drop the tab off in the first window (IE9).

Maybe a week ago (I was busy with year-end stuff and so postponed this query) Chrome started telling me when I had a new "notification" on Facebook. Even if i had no Facebook window open. There are no new processes running, and it doesn't happen with Firefox or Explorer. So Chrome has learned a new trick. Which means it installed an update without telling me. I am not happy. ToolBarCop doesn't identify any new anything in Chrome. Its not that being told that "there is news on Facebook" is bad, its that I am a control freak when it comes to my PCs, and this is out of control. Any ideas? Anyone else got this going on?

I clicked three links on my Yahoo home page, expecting little boxes to come up on the toolbar as those links opened. Instead, only one little box remained on the toolbar, labeled "My Yahoo" for my homepages, but the box had a little up arrow in the upper right hand corner. When I clicked on the arrow, a window popped up with a link to each of the three pages I had asked for.

It seemed faster that way, and it takes up less toolbar space.
