Windows 7 Offline Files Issue - The system has detected a possible attempt to compromise security.

Q: Windows 7 Offline Files Issue - The system has detected a possible attempt to compromise security.

I have looked through all the similar threads but still couldn't find a solution to this. We have Windows 7 machines logging into a Windows 2008 AD networks. While on the network, our clients are set to use internal DNS set by DHCP. A few of our
folks have offline files setup on their home drives. These users can successfully log onto their computers offline. When they attempt to access their offline files however, they receive the message "The system has detected a possible attempt
to compromise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you" along with the option to provide their credentials. Entering their credentials fails of course. The work around for them is to disconnect from the wireless network
or disable the WLAN card. At that point they can access their offline files. But as soon as they reboot, they receive the same message. If they reboot with the WLAN card disabled, they will not receive this message and are able to access their
offline files. Additionally these users are setup with VPN. If they enable VPN, the issue is corrected and they can again access their offline files.

We've attempted removing and rejoining to AD, removing their user profiles and completely rebuilding the laptop from scratch. It appears when the laptop is connected to a wireless network, it wants to contact our AD network. The articles below haven't offered
a solution.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 Offline Files Issue - The system has detected a possible attempt to compromise security.

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.)


So this isn't a question but wanted to post here an issue that we had and now have resolved in the hopes that it may help someone else.
We have mostly Windows 7 workstations connected to a single Domain (2 AD servers, 2 DNS) and began to get calls requesting assistance in changing passwords as we force password resets every 60 days.  The error that our users were getting was "The
system detected a possible attempt to compromise security".  The end result was an update (KB3172605) was causing the issue and after uninstalling the update this issue is now resolved. The reason I wanted to post it here is that the error is not
indicative of where the issue lies and when looking on these forums there were some older issues / responses which pointed to firewall or DNS but this turned out to be my issue.  
If anything changes about this I will post it here just hope it helps.

At work, there's another server in a different domain and when accessing shares we sometime get the message prompt for credentials and system detected compromised security...etc.  It's very random in nature, although, once the share comes up it then
never prompts afterwards for that session.  It's 2008 server win 7 clients.

Hey guys, wondering if anyone can ehlp me with this problem. I'm totally stumped. I setup a network with one 2003 server and about 10 workstations. What is happening is that the workstations are spiratically losing connections to the network resources on the server (shared drives, printers, etc.). The funny thing is that there is always a connection (you can run pings and everything is connected. The workstations can see each other but can't see the server's resources or presence in my network places. When I access the shared drives I get an alert that says "The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security blah blah blah." Sometimes it happens to all the workstations and sometimes it just happens to a few. At times it even occurs on a single user account reguadless of the location. Has anyone ever experienced this before? What could be the problem?

I have Windows 7 64bit Pro and Ultimate clients, and Windows Server 2003 R2 32bit domain.  All systems are fully updated.  I have no problem with Windows XP clients.
When the Win7 clients try to browse to a network share, such as \\servername they get the following error message:
The system has detected a possible attempt to compromise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you.
Sometimes, I also get the following message:
Windows needs your current credentials to ensure network connectivity.  Please lock this computer, then unlock it using your most recent password or smart card. To lock your computer, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and then press Enter.
Of course, authentication should be automatic and behind the scenes.  These messages should not come up.  But even when I type in my credentials or lock/unlock as it says, there is no change.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my laptop. I have a Windows Server 2008R2 server, set up as a domain controller. The laptop is part of the domain. When I try to access mapped drives, often I get an error that the drive is unavailable and that there has been
a possible attempt to compromise security. Sometimes it gives me a user/pass dialog to enter, and of those times, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I don't get a dialog at all. Most times I have to restart the laptop in order to connect
to the mapped drives.
Possibly related... When I initially did this, when I hovered over the wireless icon in system tray, the tooltip said the name of the domain under the AP name. Now it just says (internet access) under the AP name.
I found a post somewhere that suggested changing a group policy setting relating to timeout of the logins (don't remember it off hand), so I went in on the server and made a change to the group policy. However, my laptop cannot find a domain controller when
I try to force gpupdate. Active Directory cannot find a DC, either. Somehow my laptop continues to allow me to log in using a domain user/pass (which is a domain admin), however, it doesn't seem to find a DC for those other purposes. In my past experience
after a number of days, a laptop (different laptop, different domain, different place) would stop allowing login until it found a DC, however this has been going on for months, and I'm still able to log in.

A:Attempt to Compromise Security - Mapped Drives

I would suggest dis-joining and re-joining the laptop from the domain.  See the following article:
After dis-joining from the domain, delete and re-create the computer account in Active Directory.  In order to dis-join from the domain, simply join a dummy workgroup.

It started with windows xp security center refusing to open Firefox or IE. It popped up a window stating there was a trojan keylogger virus. I tried some online scans and only found a firewall and virus scan override registry changes.

I did a system restore but on reboot I was asked what program I would like to use to open rstrui.exe with. It did not complete.

I haven't been able to find the issue - but haven't tried much more than what I mentioned above. Now when trying to open any program (IE, firefox, calculator, to name a few) the windows "Open with" prompt opens immediatley asking what program I'd like to open firefox.exe with, or calc.exe, etc... had to work my way around that just to try and run a scan.

I could not get GMER to complete with out the computer freezing.

If I try to open windows security center through the control panel I get the message "c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe Application not found"

Came home from evening activities to find popup from Norton saying Security Request Outbound Traffic Detected. Suggested running Norton Power Eraser. My security history showed "System Infected W97M Downloader Activity 6," saying "no action required" and "an intrusion attempt by informz.net was blocked." The attacker URL was www.informz.net/pricechopper/data/images/160705/mm.jpg. It also says "the attack was resulted from \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME3\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT OFFICE 15\ROOT\OFFICE15\WINWORD.EXE" The time of this item in my history roughly corresponds to the time I received an email in my Outlook with an ad from the local Price Chopper supermarket chain, which apparently uses Informz to provide them advertising services (http://www.informz.com/blog/client-success-story/price-chopper-case-study/).
I have not done anything to clean the system (other than regular Norton running as per norm in the background).
I don't know if this should cause major concern, but is there anything I should do at this point? Win 7 64 bit system.
Many thanks.

A:Security Request Outbound Traffic Detected after intrusion attempt blocked

Welcome to BC....
Would be a good idea on your part to scan for adware and malware. Likely just adware was involved in this instance. Use the programs
below to clean, scan and remove both adware and malware.
EDIT: You can view their weekly flyer online...no need for email. To avoid any spyware/ adware you can block the store in Outlook from
sending the email flyer.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here
Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
Once MBAM opens, when it says Your databases are out of date, click the Fix Now button.

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help. I have been Googling all over the place last couple of days and looking through hundreds of regkeys but cannot find the answer. 

We have 1800 PC's using Offline files to a NAS location. Even though the Group Policy is set to force PC's Offline no matter what the latency value. I have noticed some PC's that have Offline files enabled but are set to work online. Maybe set manually
before the GPO was applied. Anyway I was wondering if there is a way to detect on numerous PC's whether a PC is set to work Offline or Online? I have been looking to see if a regkey changes when the Work Offline / Online button is pressed on the file menu
of the redirected folder. 

I have found a key that changes if you hit the button Work Online/ Offline button
manually HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\OnlineTransitionLog Value - (name of nas share) but this clears when the PC is rebooted or logged out and does not reappear unless you do the switch again manually.
This will not work when I try to scan all the PC's.

Help would be much appreciated.

I've got a situation here whereby .TMP files are appearing in network directories, and the files are going missing. The size of the TMP file matches the original file.
I'm trying to narrow down the issue, because I think there may be two problems here.  
1. Offline Files are enabled, to allow profile redirection.    It seems that this is also by default, is allowing Clinet Side Caching when there are network issues.  Does the original file (.doc for example)  get renamed
as a HR234.TMP for example when the Slow link detection sees slow performance? 
2.  If the above TMP file is created when there are network issues, should this resolve itself (sync itself back to the network) when performance improves?
Currently we are in a situation where we have a department that have files missing from many network shares, all the missing files seemlingly replaced with a .TMP file, so do we have to go round to every machine in the department, and manually
sync them to resolve this?

I have recently installed 24 new XP computers in our K-12 lower school lab. In the morning all is fine and we are able to use all of the software that these students use in the lab. I am losing connection to the mapped drives.

The first class to use the lab has no problems. When the second class comes in (after 10 to 15 minutes) they cannot connect to the software the class before them was using.

I can see the mapped drive in My Computer {G:\server\shared folder}, there is not a red X showing loss of connection. However a message will come up eventually telling me that G:\ is not accessible. If I double click on the G: drive in My Computer I will eventually get the following message: "The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you."

If I reboot all is well until we try to get back into the application after someone has finished their lesson. We even have seen a few computers freeze during the lesson while using the application.

I have two servers that has been mapped one is a Windows 2000 and the second one is Windows 4.0. The XP has been updated to XP Version 2.

I have a user on Windows 2000 Pro who is running offline files to our 2003 Server. Everything was working fine until the other day when he ran Synchronization and then certain folders appeared with a red arrow instead of the original double blue arrows denoting offline files. I have never seen this red arrow, does anyone know what this signifies?

since yesterday we have problems with computers where the offline files are enabled and the cache is encrypted.

Users cannot save files the message access is denied is coming up.

It's possible to create a file, which has then 0 bytes and when opening the file the same message is coming up.

If we do not encrypt the offline cache via GPO, everything runs normally again.

This setup worked now for several years without problems.
Any Patchday issue?

Hi, my MSE and superanti spyware will not update, i keep getting the message internet or network is down, but i was actively browsing at that time. i also tried to download malware bytes, got to the website but as soon as i tried to download it same message came up.Ok, i have found what was the problem , but in a way the new one seems worse.My computer was some how connected to another router and my router at the same, which made me lose most internet connection. The router it was connected to was a different brand and definitely not in my house. when i click on it it required a pin, which i did not have, then i tried to login to my router, but i got a message saying i was already logged in, which was definitely not. After a while i unplug the power for my router waited a while then plug it back in. when i check my network setting again the other router connect was gone and i was able to login to my router again, i then changed the password.I use wireless to connect to the router in my house, so i wondering if someone was logging my computer on to that router and also logging into my router and how i can prevent it. Thanks.

With wireless connection you can set it up to connect automatically to the one with the best connection. I would also highly recommend that you login to the router via wired means to make changes.

I'm sitting with a big issue at a customer and ask for your help.
- 3x Windows 2008 R2 file servers configured in DFS
- approx. 500x Windows 7 clients (Laptops)
- 3x network shares, Common1, Common2 and Homefolder. 
- "Offline Files" and "Folder Redirection" enabled for entire user profile.
- Everything is controlled by GPOs and there are no login scripts.
Due to some faulty settings in the client GPO and the fact that the "Common" shares was set to allow Offline Caching of files and folders, the majority of clients now suffer from sync issues and conflicts.
Most of the conflicted files are located in the users home folder, but some users are also seeing the same issues with files located on the "Common" shares. The users themselfes are not allowed to enable Offline Files as this is disabled by GPOs.
The only folders that should be treated as Offline Files are the ones in the users home folder.
A new set of GPOs have been created that correctly set up "Offline Files" and "Folder Redirection". These are linked to a test-OU and the computers and users applied to that OU are not suffering from the problems above.
When we move a client, the cache will be deleted and all non-sync'd work will be lost.
Today we manually look at every users sync center and try to resolve the conflicts before we move them to the new OU. This is extremely time consuming when... Read more

I recently downloaded the Sims 3 Pets from Origin. Think it's possibly not a coincidence that when I searched through the similar topics for the virus that people had the Sims 3 in their files. I checked the file location for something MalwareBytes picked up and it was created the day I downloaded this game. I can't seem to get rid of this virus. Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Firewall and Windows Update will not turn on. When I scan with M Security Essentials and with M Security Scanner it gets to a certain point and then comes up saying there is a critical error and the laptop will restart in one minute. What can I do to get rid of this virus? I've uninstalled M Security Essentials now and have installed MalwareBytes. My details are:

64 Bit Operating System
Dell Inspiron N7010
Windows 7 Home Premium

The same restarting seems to happen on MalwareBytes. It's got to the same file on a quick scan three times:


There are three files inside:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

Once it's identified it, it says it urgently needs to restart.

Microsoft Security Essentials identified it as Win64/Sirefef.B

From MalwareBytes:

First of all, this is an office computer. Half the things installed, I had nothing to do with. Last night, it was fine, and then this morning all of a sudden it was giving "security" popup messages in the taskbar and attempting to fix/install something. It has popped up every few seconds ever since. I clean this computer regularly, so I have no idea how it got on here, but that's beside the point. So far I've installed and tried AdAware, Malwarebytes, AVG Free, and Counter Spy. A couple of them pulled up results, but after the cleaning process, the taskbar popups are still there. The computer also already had Yahoo Antivirus installed, so I tried that as well. (No results). I also run CCleaner and Advanced Windows Care fairly regularly.Out of sheer frustration, here is my HijackThis log - any help would be appreciated!

I will be assisting you with your computer issues. All of my proposed fixes and suggestions must be approved by a fully-qualified Malware Removal Instructor. This will delay response times somewhat, but I will endeavor to respond within a reasonable time, normally 48 hours after your last post.
I will need some time to review your FRST logs and consult with the Malware Response Instructor (MRI) who will be assigned to supervise this topic. That could take a few days. Once I have reviewed my proposed response with the assigned MRI, I will reply to you with initial instructions.

Is there any solution to constant system failure to a level where the blue screen turns up and laptop can't be even turned on, after every system update?

I've checked the drivers and everything, but since the big update pack somewhere in March every update ends up in system failure. And the restore points before the updates are useless, because system doesn't recognize them.

After the second time this has happened and I've lost all the files that has not been backed up on hard drive I really start to think is there something wrong to Lenovo and Windows 7 combination?

I almost start to regret that I have legal version with update option.

I am implementing windows 7 soon at work and i have a test machine i have been working with. At my business we use the syncing of offline files in this way. Currently with XP all of our users My Documents are stored on the server and mapped to the users my documents on there PC

I have been searching for this in windows 7 and have had no luck. the only thing i have found is they want you to map a network drive and use it that way.

Does anyone know if what i am currently using in XP works in 7.


A:Windows 7 offline files

The process for folder redirection remains pretty much the same as it has been in previous versions of Windows, the only caveat being that, you cannont use the link from the start menu "Documents" or the link within libraries "Documents". You need to use the actual location c:\users\YourUserName\My Documents, right click, properties, location tab, move.
Maybe these two articles might help further.

Hi, sorry if i?m in the wrong area of the forum.

I tried to switch my laptop on yesterday and my computer froze on the Windows welcome screen. I waited for ages but it wouldn?t load so I switched it off by holding down the power button and tried to switch back on again. This time, it went to a Startup Repair screen. Waited for ages again and when the startup repair had finally finished it said it couldn?t be repaired. I have tried restarting loads of times since then and same thing happens. I got a message with all the error codes so I kept the details of this so I could determine the problem but I can?t find this exact error code/problem signature combination anywhere else.

Heres what it said:


Problem signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385

Problem signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385

Problem signature 3: unknown

Problem signature 4: 11

Problem signature 5: AutoFailover

Problem signature 6: 1

Problem signature 7: BadDisk

OS Version: 6.1.7601.

Hi there,

I have recently got a new laptop, and as I wanted to use the network offline files (not onedrive offline) I upgraded it from Windows 10 Home to Pro specifically for that feature.

I have done this upgrade before with no problems.

However, on this laptop, when I go to the Control Panel, select 'Manage Offline Files', and click enable, simply nothing happens; no error message is displayed.

I have tried to enable offline files multiple times (tried restarting), with no luck.

How can I fix this?

Many thanks.

Notebook with Windows 8.1 Pro. There is set folder redirection for Documents folder via GPO. It works fine on many our PCs, but on one machine it works bad. I open This Computer-Documents and copy there files - cca 20GB. Redirect folder on server has 20GB,
offline folders on PC (Synchronization center-Offline Files) has too 20GB (size of max. capacity Offline files changed from default 8GB to 70GB before copying). After disconnectig/reconnecting network the Offline Files has 8MB. WHY it disappears? Second try,
copy the same files (20GB), disconnect/reconnect network, Offline files changed from 20GB to 15GB, some folders and files are unaviable after disconnect network. I misunderstand it. Copy files from local folder to Documents folder was via classic windows CTRL+C
- CTRL-V, but it works unususal - about 1/3 copy with speed 1-10MB/s, the rest was copy with speed +-100MB/s. Synchronization center was without error. Windows are updated. Please help.

The mapped drive status in explorer is disconnected Network Drive. However when I open the Offline Files folder I see all the cached files and the Server Status for all files is online.

Is there a way I can force the server status to offline so that I can access these files via the mapped drives I have set up.
