Protected mode in Windows 7 -- Internet Explorer 8

Q: Protected mode in Windows 7 -- Internet Explorer 8

Since August 28th Automatic Download from Microsoft, I've been unable to print documents in Internet Explorer which concern mostly finance. This includes Intuit payroll check stubs, my bank statement, and sometimes a recipe. The webmaster at the USPS consulted about the inability to no longer do Click N Ship labels suggested Internet Explorer 8 as the villain and suggested I change browser. Should I go back to Internet Explorer 7 and if so how. Using a different browser like Mozilla's would be difficult because of my vision. I have to stick with what I know. Or should I delete the update if that is where 8 replaced 7?
If you can help please e-mail me at [email protected]
PS If I disable protected mode even for a few minutes, my computer just goes crazy with security warnings... and this doesn't work in all cases such as Click N Ship.

Preferred Solution: Protected mode in Windows 7 -- Internet Explorer 8

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 am using Win 7, 64 bit with IE 8
I went into Internet Options, Security Tab and turned Protected Mode off for each of the Internet zones (I don't remember why) but then later turned Prot Mode on again for each of the zones.

But the status bar at the bottom of IE 8 window says Protected Mode is Off.

How do I get the Status to indicate properly?

A:Internet Explorer 8 Protected Mode On or Off

1.) Launch Internet Explorer.

2.) Go to 'Advanced tab' in 'Internet Options' Pop up window.

3.) Down below 'Settings' clcik on "Restore advanced settings"

4.) Now under "Recent Internet Explorer settings" click "Reset..."

5.) Restart IE.

Thank you :)

I'm  trying to understand how these two options work together. 
If 'Run As Administrator' is unchecked
on IE shortcut, does Protected Mode in IE Option work or not? 
If 'Run As Administrator' is checked
on IE shortcut, does Protected Mode in IE Option work or not? 
In my assumption, the Enable Protected mode in in IE internet zone only works when IE process is launched with a standard  user access token the user uses . If IE process is launched from a administrative user token (run as administrator), will this
IE Option still work if it's checked and restrict access to securable objects like system files and registries?

I was checking the Internet Explorer default security settings for the different zones. I haven't changed anything and mine are showing Protected Mode is Enabled for the Internet and Restricted zones.
But Protected Mode is set to Off for Local Intranet and Trusted sites. Are these settings the correct defaults?
I have read on some sites that Protected Mode is set to be Enabled by default for all the zones except the Trusted zone or was this with older versions of Internet Explorer?
Im not even sure what a Local Intranet is!! Im just accessing the Internet using a single PC from home and my computer is using the Private Network setting

Ok, this question has been asked around many corners of the Internet and these forums and I haven't found a "real" answer so I'm asking it again and hopefully seeking a final resolution to the problem.

When "Protected Mode" is turned On, users are unable to view some folders in the file upload dialog that they can normally view (e.g. under Documents, Pictures, etc.).When viewing the same folders in Explorer running as the same user as the Internet Explorer instance, the missing folders are viewable.Launching Internet Explorer "as an administrator" allows the user to view the missing folders (but this is not recommended due to security concerns).
So far, the workaround that I found was to either run some crazy tool from BleepingComputer called Unhide that resets everything on your system -- this is the sledge hammer-to-thumbtack approach.  Another one was to go into Organize > Folder and
search options > View and uncheck the hide options and select the show radio option.  The last one was to search for the folder in the file upload dialog, right-click the folder, and uncheck Hidden.
None of these, IMHO, are valid solutions to the real problem which is that something is special about this folder that is causing IE in Protected Mode to treat the file as Hidden.
The last "workaround" seems to indicate that the "hidden" file attribute is set for the file, but this doesn't app... Read more

If I want to reduce the level of access that a malicious website might have on computer, then I can turn on Phishing filter and that takes care of this problem.
I just came to know that , I can enable IE Protected mode and that will reduce the level of access a malicious website might have on computer.

Are both these solutions used for the same purpose ? Which one is better option ?


A:Whats difference between Phishing filter and Internet Explorer Protected Mode ?

In Protected Mode, Internet Explorer cannot modify user or system files and settings without user consent. Protected Mode requires the user to confirm any activity that tries to put something on your machine or start another program. By ensuring the user consents to these kinds of actions, the likelihood of automated or unwanted software installation is reduced. This feature also makes you aware of what a website is trying to do, giving you a chance to stop it and take time to double check the trustworthiness of the website.

Phishing is the technique of convincing a user to send personal information to a bogus (or potentially malicious) website that is designed to appear legitimate. The Phishing Filter in Internet Explorer combines a local system scanning for suspicious website characteristics with an online service.

Hope this makes sense.

Using Vista home premium and had to place 4 links into the trusted sites in security to get vista to accept activeX so i can get to play at game site i like and it worked.

But clicked the protected mode back on, and getting a warning its still off, is there a problem with having links in trusted sites and having the protected mode running? Or did i miss something??

What does the internet Protected mode do and shouldn t it be on if possible? - thanks . . .

A:Internet Protected Mode

From the Microsoft website: "In Protected Mode, Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista cannot modify user or system files and settings without user consent. Protected Mode requires the user to confirm any activity that tries to put something on your machine or start another program."

The first thought that comes to mind is the browser reset function that restores IE7 back to facorty defauts. This tends to clear up alot of thoses things like this that cause strange problems. You can find the Reset in the Internet Options under the Advanced tab.

Hello Jerry,

In Internet Options under the Security tab, click on each zone icon at the top to double check that the Protected Mode option is checked in each zone. Be sure to close and reopen all instances of IE8 to apply the changes afterwards. You may not have it checked in one of them, or did not open and close IE8 afterwards before.

Hi. I am using windows Vista. At the bottom of the screen when I am in explorer an using the internet - it says Protected Mode: Off. It used to day 'On'. I am worried why it has changed. How can I switch it back on again - also what does it mean? what is it protecting me from. I have installed some plug-ins - maybe this is why?

Thank you

A:Internet Protected mode has changed by itself!

Go to Tools / Internet Options , Security Tab.

Click on each icon, then for each icon's page, checkmark Enable Protected Mode ....
It doesn't do any harm to enable protected mode for all types of sites.

IE classifies web sites you go to, and detects whether they are local on your hard drive, on your intranet etc. and turns Protected Mode on or off accordingly. After setting the checkmark as per above, it will always be on.

Since a few days back a strange problem started ocurring for some users in our domain. Some have IE9 others like me have IE11. Problem is that IE can't browse Internet pages (it just keep loading with the white screen) when Protected mode is ON. Previously
there was no problem with this. Other browsers don't have this issue. OS in the company is Win7.
Thank you.

A:Can't browse Internet zone when protected mode is ON

Hi Leo,
Could you please include a link(s) (copied from the IE Address bar) to any website you are having problems with, in your questions. This will enable us to visit the sites to make some tests and guesses.
Protected Mode, on Win7 forces the IE tab process to use a x64 process, so x86 activex controls will not run and are blocked.
For IE11/Win7 there is also ActiveX filtering which will stop x86 or x64 ActiveX controls from running.
IE11 also has depreciated the ActiveXControl object which some sites may use for feature detection. From memory, I don't think IE9 had ActiveX filtering, but there are Addons for all versions of IE (Flash block for example) that have a similar functionality.
Use Tools>Manage Addons>Show all Addons to locate and find the properties of your installed ActiveX controls and whether or not they have been disabled.
So I await your re-post with some sample web addresses where the problem is occurring.
Also, the first step in troubleshooting web browser issues is to test in noAddons modeRob^_^

I'm finding that our users are experiencing issues accessing full functionality from multiple web sites and when I disable Protected Mode, their issue is resolved.  I have some specific cases that I would like to share:
1. A website which is secured.  The Windows security dialog appears and prompts the user to enter credentials (Not an HTML form...this is a windows dialog).  If protected Mode is enabled on the Internet zone, then this prompt never appears and
therefore the users cannot sign-in and gain access to the site.
2. OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online are accessed using ADFS for authentication.  The sites were attempting to load but simply timing out until I disabled Protected Mode on the Internet site.  Then the both sites (accessed via
https://portal.office.com) would completely load and be usable.
3. There are others but now that I think of it, they appear to be redundant.  It seems with Protected Mode enabled, authentication does not function properly on multiple sites.  We have tried circumventing this by adding some of these sites to
the Proxy Exceptions List and also configuring policy to treat all Proxy exceptions as Intranet Zone.  Protected Mode is disabled on the Intranet zone.  However, it seems counterintuitive to have Internet sites added to the Intranet Zone or to Bypass
the proxy server to access them.  So I would love to know where I'm going wrong with our configuration of In... Read more

We are preparing to roll out IE11 to about 12,000 desktops.  We have determined which modes (Document Modes or Enterprise Modes, in a couple of cases Compatability View) each application needs to be run in and added the appropriate settings to a central
Enterprise Mode Site List (EMSL) XML file.  For historical reasons there are various settings in the Group Policy delivered from Active Directory and in the HTML tags of application pages thart specify various modes.
Going forward we are looking for a way to conclusively identify where the settings for a page have come from.  From experimentation we have found that if you open the F12 developer tools and open the console then go to the navigation tab, click start
recording, refresh the page then click stop recording then in the console:
* If the mode was set by the Doctype tag of the page it will state in the console output that the page targets a particular mode
* If the mode is set using Group Policy then it will state in the console output that the mode was set by Group Policy
* If the mode is set using a meta X-UA tag in the page (see http://sbjoomla.org.uk/IE11/withdoctypeandmode10.html) then there will be no mention in the console output
* If the mode is set using the EMSL XML file then there will be no mention in the console output
We have been advised by Microsoft support that the EMSL XML file *should* take precedence over all other settings, however our experience, and comments from applicati... Read more

Please do not post your Hijack this logs here. Due to Forum Rules we cannot assist in malware removal here. Have you tried a different browser (Chrome, Firefox etc)? When you say IE only works in Safe Mode with Networking, Do you mean you boot the computer normally and use IE (safe mode) or are you booting the computer into Safe Mode with Networking? In other words you can't boot normally?

I am having an issue where Protected Mode causes certain websites to crash with IE11. I have noticed it on three different websites. Our internal Citrix webpage, GoToAssist's portal, and our Exchange OWA website. If Protected Mode is on, these websites
cause IE11 to crash. When Protected Mode is off, the websites work fine. I have only seen this behavior on Windows 10. It works fine on Windows 7. I have noticed this on multiple machines that are both domain and non-domain machines.

I posted a message several months ago about a credential prompt problem when activating EPM on Windows 10.
After investigation, I finally found that, in Windows 10, when EPM is activated, Internet Explorer pages are sandboxed in AppContainers. These AppContainers doesn't have access to the local network, which seems great but not for me actually.
The proxy server's custom error pages are hosted on the secure intranet site.
When a user browse an Internet page which contains a frame trying to access a blacklisted site, he is prompted to enter his credentials to display a page telling that this has been blocked by the proxy, because of the AppContainer security.
So for our tests I diabled EPM in Windows 10.
Now, I need to enable EPM. This is a requirement and cannot be bypassed if we want to do more tests.

Except by publishing the custom pages on Internet, which will be also refused, is there a way to handle this kind of problem?

I just did a reload and went to use IE7 and saw that the protected mode was Off.

I double clicked on it, lower right side of screen, and a Security box came up indicating that it was in the Protected Mode, with the upper Internet Icon being assigned to the setting.

I unchecked the box and clicked Apply and a couple warning boxes came up and I clicked OK on them. I then got off of IE7.

Later I came back to IE7 and went to the Security box again and clicked to Enable the Protected Mode. I then got off of IE7 and then later came back, I did not do a restart, and it still did not take. I am still in the Protected Mode: Off status.

Does anyone have any advice as to how I can get this change to stick?

The subject says it all. We have all the
PCs in a domain. Via GPO
is "Enhanced Protected Mode"
Under Win 8.1.
everything works perfectly.

Update on Win10: domain user
(with roaming profiles
- but should not matter ...) are not able to open any page in IE zone "internet. If I type the URL manually and press ENTER, nothing happens. When I click on a link tp any external page on our
intranet page, two new tabs open with
the URL "res:
//ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#,about: blank"

Intranet and Trusted Sites
(also via GPO defined) works fine (because protected mode is disabled for them by default).

By trial and error I found out that it
is the "EPM" that causes the problem.
If I switch it off, IE works again.

But why does it work
under Win8.1 and no longer
under Win10?
(BTW, when I try to start IE like this "iexplore -extoff", it opens with an empty window, stays for about ten seconds and then closes again. No error message, nothing ...)

Can anyone confirm this behavior?

Recently, my company started working with a company where they wanted to redirect from an internal Intranet Kiosk site to a publicly available application site. The site apparently (due to lack of something) does NOT have the ability to remove any File Upload
links when coming from the Kiosk URL.  The Kiosk computers are running Windows 7 Pro with various GPOs and registry keys locking them down to using Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode replacing the explorer.exe on the user account. The problem is we have
not been able to find a way to Disable "Choose File to Upload" dialogs in Internet Explorer 11. This seems like it should be a pretty straight forward option as you can disable File Downloads using GPOs but apparently disabling File Uploads isn't
something commonly done. 
A number of blocks are in place, but there is always the fun the user could have of uploading files by using their Environmental Variables (Example: %WINDIR%\win.ini) that we would like to avoid.  In fact, I'd like to avoid any dialog to avoid any issues
with seeing Libraries or Desktop folder paths.
Given Kiosk Mode for Internet Explorer has been an age old feature, I'm amazed disabling "File Upload" isn't some default option when you set in Kiosk Mode.
Please assist!  Thanks!

I for one love a challenge.. ( to a point)
Have a newer computer here running Windows 7 with office 2010.  The user double clicks on an excel spreadsheet and up comes Excel as it should, and up comes the document.  All of the options are grayed out so it is either opening in read only mode or some sort of protected mode, I suspect the latter.
Here is the gotcha; if you move the document on the screen, or minimize it and maximize it, all is normal after that.  Currently scanning for VIRI but I don’t think I will find anything.

Sounds as though the document is not active until selected. But, this is only a guess on my part.

The issue a client is having is they need to be running 32 bit browser to run in order to use a check scanner with a local bank. when they try using IE11 it run 64 bit and will not run 32 bit no matter where you launch it from. Confirmed that enable protected
mode is turned off as well. They can use google chrome eith a add on called IE tabs but it hasnt been playing nicely so would rather they use internet explorer if we can get it to run in a 32 bit mode. anyone have a suggestion on what else we can try

Every time I put my laptop to sleep and have a Windows Explorer window open, the CPU goes to 100% for several minutes after waking up the computer. If I wait for a long time, it will eventually go back to normal, but most often I close all the Windows explorer
windows, manually or using Task Manager, and reopen them again to get to a normal CPU working load. I have not been able to identify clearly with process explorer what is causing this, although SHCORE.DLL is one of the suspects. Searching on Internet I have
surprisingly not found many similar cases, so I do not know how to proceed.
Running sfc gives a few errors, which do not seem to be possible to repair, but I doubt it has anything to do with this problem.

I have Windows XP. Internet Explorer Emergency Mode is on. E-virus continuosly pops up indicating that my computer maybe infected, identity theft is possible and that a malicious virus has possibly infected my computer. My browser works very inconsistently and with great difficulty. The warning box from E-virus is constantly on my computer screen and the pop-ups from E-virus occur often,especially when I try to utilize my browzer. Any advice? Please help. I've run avast and it indicates that nothing is infected.

I am quite a novice with computers but my pc has internet connection but I was unable to access internet explorer it just said address not valid or page could not be displayed. I was told to do a reset on internet options which I have done and nothing happened. I was then told to try and access it in safe mode. I am now in safe mode and can not get out of it! Help please how can I get back to normal mode and get my Internet Explorer page back. Kind regards,

A:safe mode and internet explorer

Hey, to get out of safe mode (if this is windows safe mode you're talking about) then when booting:
- Tap F8(Before the windows image and loader comes up)
- Choose "Normal..."
- Press enter.

As for the IE problem, is this on every page?

This is my 1st post, so hello to all Windows Users.

How do I turn on the compatibility mode in IE 9 Beta, so that it will work automatically for every website that has icon with it?

Thanks in advance.

A:Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility Mode

Hello Nenes, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you want all sites to use compatibility view in Internet Explorer 9, you will need to press ALT to be able to click on the Tools Menu bar item instead to. Afterwards it's the same as in IE8 in the tutorial below.

Internet Explorer Compatilbility View - All Websites

If you only want specific sites to use compatibility view, then you will still need to manually click on the compatibility view icon to turn it blue when it appears in the IE9 address bar, or manually add the website to the compatibility view list.

Internet Explorer Compatibility View - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,

Help Needed!

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop, running Windows 7, 64 bit. Two weeks ago my Internet Explorer began running slowy, and then after a few days, the program would open but after about 30 seconds, would start clocking and give a Not Responding error message. It runs in Safe Mode just fine. I downloaded Firefox and experienced the same problem.

I have been trying to find an answer for the past week. I tried several things from different forums and posts.

1) msconfig; Disabled add-ons - restart - problem remains
2) Malwarebytes - 0 problems were found
3) CCleaner - no help

I saw one of your posts that said to run HiJackThis ....I would really appreciate anyone who can read it and tell me what needs to be done so that my Internet Explorer will run in Normal Mode.

I am a computer novice, so will need the Dummies explanation.

Thank you in advance for your help!!

A:Internet Explorer will only run in Safe Mode

May not be the same problem, but I recently had a similar situation with my neighbor's PC. They'd been using Norton Internet Security for years. All of a sudden about a month ago they had sporadic and then no internet connection. But they had connection in safe mode. I tried everything I could find online to no avail but eventually led me to uninstall NIS using their Uninstall utility. With NIS uninstalled, everything was fine. I tried twice reinstalling NIS (after Uninstall utility) and couldn't get it to work. So, I replaced NIS with Komodo and everything's fine again including their Internet access being much faster than it had been in a long time according to them. Thought I'd mention this just in case you're using NIS or, maybe, some other AV is causing a similar problem.

I can do security scans in safe mode, but IE "cannot display this site". The diagnostic says an error has occurred.
Would appreciate your help.
Thank you.

A:Internet Explorer In Safe Mode

i am not much more than a newbie, but i might be able to help you. safe mode has an option menu. i think you may want to choose "safe mode with networking". if you chose the first option "safe mode", the connection to the internet is disabled. some safe mode options direct you to "pages" that don't appear to have any way out. there is a flashing underscore like a command prompt, and you're supposed to type "quit", "stop" or "exit" (then hit enter) to leave. there is no red X in the upper right hand corner. i can't remember which word it is.

I started having problems 4 days ago, I downloaded Ad Aware Anti-virus and uninstalled Comodo Internet Security. I installed Glary Utilities about 3 months ago. I don't know what happened exactly, while I was uninstalling the Comodo Internet Securit. It started giving me problems with errors and then i just lost the internet. I have a wireless signal full strength, I even called AT & T to see if they could help me. They had me try some things, but told me it seemed like a browser problem. I have a Backup & restore disc, that I made back in August last year, plus I have Toshiba Recovery Discs (2), that I done myself. Plus a cd of Toshiba Applications and Drives. I can log on to the internet through safe mode with no problem. I really hope you can help me get my laptop back to where it was.

I hope you can help here. My kids downloaded some malicious adware and I managed to remove all of them with Adware/Spybot/Spycatcher. However I deleted a (virtual bouncer) file from my local registry and somehow I could not open my internet browser. I am able to open it fine in safe mode but I'm not sure how to reestablish connection in normal boot mode.
I am running windows 2000.
I appreciate any advice as I think I'm going mad with frustration.....
