Internet Explorer and "enable protected mode"

Q: Internet Explorer and "enable protected mode"

Hi,
I am running IE 8 on Win 7 and have a problem accessing a site I am having developed. Problem is resolved by disenabling the protection above but I want to know if this is just my problem or if anyone else on Vista or Win7 encounters the same problem. I cannot expect customers to disenable. When I select an item for the shopping basket and press confirm the basket empties to zero. Please someone on one of the versions above have a go for me just as far as "confirm basket - no further!". Big ask I know. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer and "enable protected mode"

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.)

The message is a waste of my screen real estate. Yes, Protected mode is turned off. Sure it is, I turned it off myself, and it will stay off. Now how do I disable this annoying nag message?
Also the messages about File Downloads. Never once in my life I clicked a download link by mistake. Yes, I'm clicking that dang URL, because I wan't to download that dang file, now get out my way, annoying warning message. How do I disable this one
too? Thank you in advance

A:How do I disable the "Protected mode is currently turned off for the Internet zone" message?

Hi,
Based on my research, this is by design. You cannot disable the warning when you open a new IE windows.

Hello!

The subject says it all. We have all the
PCs in a domain. Via GPO
is "Enhanced Protected Mode"
aktivated.
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!

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

While using "Windows Explorer" as an FTP client I have put the system into a state where any attempts to access an FTP folder from "Windows Explorer" produces the following dialog:
Dialog Title: "FTP Folder Error"
Dialog Icon: Information Icon
Dialog Text: "Windows cannot access this folder.  Make sure you typed the file name correctly and that you have permission to access the folder.  Details: No more Internet handles can be allocated"
Dialog Buttons: OK
I had used the "Add a network location" feature of "Windows Explorer" to add an FTP site.  The FTP folder appears under "Computer" in the left panel of "Windows Explorer." 
It is not mapped to a drive letter.  I then initiated a large FTP transfer operation by using drag-and-drop from the FTP folder to a local folder.  A portion of the transfer completed as expected but after some time it produced the "No more Internet

"dependency chain" "windows 7" internet "windows explorer"

At the time of this writing, this search in Google will produce one result at best. Am I searching the wrong things? I have tried a couple handfuls of variants, and I am coming up with zilch.

Though I am fairly well versed in Windows 7 from working on other people's machines, I decided to stick with good old XP because of one issue above all else. When I instructed my firewall to block Windows Explorer from accessing the Internet it completely cut me off from the Internet, no ifs, ands or buts. My understanding of why this is happened leads me to believe the dependency chain for Internet access goes through Windows Explorer. I have long had a habit of blocking my File Manager of choice access to the Internet because... well, it's a file manager! Admittedly, my one experience with Windows 7 on my own machine was a retired student version of Server 2008 R2, but as soon as I found out that was the case, I decided not to make the move to Windows 7 and went back to my XP installation. I believe I was using Sunbelt Personal Firewall at the time. I now use PCTools Free Firewall.

Is this still the case with Windows 7? Is there a workaround if it is?

I haven't tried to recreate this on another person's machine.

I am attempting to start the "Mobile Hotspot" that is inside the settings menu, without an active internet connection. Is there any way I can do this, or is there an alternative?
What I have tested before is using the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network". I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
To clarify, even though the netsh method fails, using Mobile Hotspot with an active internet connection works fine.

Sounds like a permissions issue. Log in as an administrator or power user. See if you can make the changes you desire.

If not, (still logged in as the administrator) remove and reinstall the program. Reboot. Log in again as the administrator, update and see if that resolves the issue.

Win 7 Professional x64
EMET 5.2 & Adobe Acrobat Reader 11 were working together. Not sure what my EMET 5.2 mitigation settings were for Reader.
Upgraded to EMET 5.5 and now I get a message when launching Adobe Reader saying:
"Adobe Acrobat Reader DC cannot be opened in Protected Mode due to an incompatibility with your system configuration. Would you like to open Adobe Acrobat Reader DC with Protected Mode disabled?"
If I select open with Protected Mode disabled, Adobe still crashes for certain operations. My default EMET settings for AcroRd32.exe are everything checked except ASR.
If I disable all mitigations in EMET 5.5, Adobe Reader works normally.
If I return mitigations to default and then additionally disable EAF+, the problem persists, although I found a post saying that fixed the issue in earlier versions of EMET.
Question: Is there a custom set of mitigations that enable Reader to work, or should I disable Reader mitigations in EMET, or should I disable Protected Mode in Reader, or should I use a different PDF viewer like SumatraPDF?

Hello, I am (as of this writing) using Windows 10 Preview Build 14390. My question has to do with customizing folders in File Explorer.

Is there a way to customize every folder/subfolder on my system (including external hard drives, USB flash drives, and CD/DVD) so that the Bit Rate type I?ve selected in the Sort By context menu is displayed in ?Display? Mode?

As of right now, it seems I have to add this option manually to each and every folder I use, one at a time.

If this is possible, what is the procedure? Also, if it is possible, will it work for new folders, as well? And will it work if I rename a folder?

The Bit Rate option need only appear in folders that contain audio files. Is there a way to restrict this option so that it doesn?t appear in every folder? (It?s not a big deal if it can?t.)

Here?s a screen shot of what I?m referring to:

I used the website https://supportdetails.com to check the details of my browser and what other websites detect it as, and it detects it as Internet Explorer 7 for some strange reason. When I check the actual version of Internet Explorer
by going to the Tools button and then About Internet Explorer, it says I am using Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.18763.
I am running Windows RT 8.1 which might be the reason as to why other websites/services detect my browser as IE 7, as other devices such as the Surface Pro 3, iPad and other laptops all work fine.
If there is a way to make my device be detected as Internet Explorer 11 and not 7, that would be great.

I installed my Yamaha XY50 software synth the other day but i didn't reboot immediately because i was dialed up at the time and I don't have broadband currently so dialing is a pain. I didn't use the new software before rebooting 10 min later. After I rebooted I got a series of error messages.

unexpected exception "hercplgs.cpl, boot entry point"

-hercplgs.cpl is for my hercules sound card, this could be related to the yamaha synth installation.

and then a series of "...has encountered a problem and needs to close" errors

they are

itouch.exe
explorer.exe
msmsgs.exe

once explorer closes I cannot do anything, ctrl alt del doesn't work, so I press the restart button.

So I boot into safe mode and try system restore. there is a restore point from a few days ago, but I cannot change the month out of august, system restore is stuck in august. So I select the 11th aug system checkpoint. wait 20 min and it still hasn't rebooted.

Start\turn off computer\restart does not work either.

If I try to open 'my computer' I get windows explorer "needs to close."

I've tried Start\run\sfc /scannow

but it says cannot find the file.

I downloaded hijack on my bro's computer to try and run their test but I cannot open my A:\ drive because explorer crashes.

I am on a Windows 7 Professional SP1 system, running IE 11 (11.0.9600.19230C0, update version 11.0.101 (4483187).


When I have Internet explorer opened in "kiosk mode" on one monitor and I open a hyperlink from the other monitor it will open the link in a new IE window (non-full screen) .    If I do the same test with IE not in "kiosk mode"
the hyper link will open in the open window/tab. 

I have Internet Options -- Tab settings "Open links from other programs in"  set to "the current tab or window".  

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi, I am having a problem with my newer computer, I just got this rig a few months ago and never had a problem until last Thursday. It Blue Screened on me while I was installing ARC GIS 10.1. From then on it randomly crashes. (I have previously installed ARC GIS 10 and never had a problem.)

I keep things updated (windows and drivers) and I do think windows forced through an update earlier that day. I un installed ARC GIS 10.1 and the windows update, didn't make any difference. I have also ran the Windows Mem test and Auslogic BoostSpeed/ Registry repair. I keep getting "Bad Pool Header" and "Page In Nonpage Area" and I can't seem to find something that triggers it. So far it hasn't crashed in Safe Mode without network access. I tried it once with access and it crashed. Currently have windows checking the drives for errors ( I have 4).

I think I attached the proper dump files. This is my work computer so this is kind of causing a big problem. Thanks in advanced for the help!!

The crash dump you supplied, suggests the display driver failed there.

On my Win10 x64 home computer, I find that a I can't always start Internet Explorer (ver 11). I'll click on the icon, the "working" symbol spins for a second and nothing happens.

Then I open Task Manager, and I find about 10 or 12 instances of Internet Explorer and IE (32) running/open. If I then "End task" for each one. I can then get Internet Explorer working again.

For some reason IE is not closing fully when I end the session. It appears that I can continue opening/using IE until I get about 10 or 12 instances running then I can't open or use IE again until I close of all the open IE processes in task manger.

Yesterday my PC crashed and now I can only use it in Safe Mode. I have been through the Windows self repair program which has done nothing. The first time it happened, it allowed me to start from a system restore point, but then it crashed again and now doing a system restore doesn't even let me start up windows normally.

I looked in the "device manager" driver section and it has an exclamation mark next to the "Consumer IR Devices" in the "System Devices" section and It says: "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"
Further details:
"Driver Provider: Microsoft"
"Driver Version: 6.0.6001.18000"

I click on "check for solutions" it doesn't do anything, and I have tried uninstalling and restarting the computer, and also the "update driver" option but it says windows has determined it is up to date.

Does anyone have any solutions for this? I have been googling for a solution for hours and haven't came across any solutions, apart from that it could potentially be to do with video card/drivers or RAM.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi and THANKS for being there! This is primarily a term definition question. I don't find any clear answer in my user's guide.

I've got this terrific add-on AGP card installed, very fancy, very feature-rich. But I'm thinking that's beside the point. (It's a nVidia Geforce FX 5200)

This TV Tuner/Capture card dates back a ways; bought it for my old Windows Millennium machine and I remember that it worked just GREAT. It has the brand name "Brooktree" but that might just be the chipset or something. Anyway, I abandoned the TV add-on when I upgraded to a newer Windows XP machine in early 2007. I couldn't find the right driver though it worked pretty fairly with the old driver for most TV stations, it didn't work perfectly. I ditched it at the time.

I recently visited driverguide.com and searched diligently and finally did find a perfect driver for that TV card for XP. I am sure it is the latest and best driver available, so that is not even an issue.

Since I no longer subscribe to cable, I can use this old card to watch only channel 3, as output by my VCR. (The card also has FM radio, which works great!)

Here's the thing. A very itty-bitty teensy slight snag. When I initiate the TV Tuner, it always starts up in what they call "Preview mode". There is sound but no picture! No problem, I just tell it to go into the alternate mode, "... Read more

I am running Windows XP Home SP2 with the latest updates on a Pentium 1.8 GHz Dell 2350. Recently, IE and Eudora quit working. (No new programs had been installed.) IE will not load any pages, it just freezes. Eudora reports an "unhandled exception" and exits. "My Computer" generally will not open, but occasionally after searching several minutes it will function perfectly with every disk/link opening instantly. (I can bypass the "My Computer" button with the "Run" command to instantly open any drive. Using this method, the Control Panel may still open slowly.) Using Task Manager, no process generally appears to be using a lot of CPU resources. Also, "My Computer" and Eudora function perfectly in Safe Mode.

I did run the Panda online scanner. After 6 hours, it reported 37 potential "viruses or spyware" but did not give an option to fix any. I neglected to save the log file at that time--sorry. Since then, I have downloaded and run the following antivirus/spyware detection programs without finding any problems other than tracking cookies (removed all cookies): SpyBot Search & Destroy, AVG Free 8.0 full scan, BitDefender 10 Antivirus full scan, the latest Windows malware removal tool, sfc\ scannow (did not run with XP CD in drive), and Windows Defender. I have also uninstalled IE, restarted, and then tried opening Eudora with no improvement. After that, I uninstalled Eudora, installed IE 7, and res... Read more

The problem is only htm and html file icons in Windows Explorer.

Hi.

I accidentally pulled the plug out of my computer when it was in the middle of shutting down. Now that I've tried to reboot it, I get a screen saying:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode With Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Start Windows Normally

Whenever I click on any of the options above, I always ends up back at the same screen, suggest the above options again. I've tried rebooting I again a few times but nothing works?

Any ideas?

I shut down the computer last night and when I restarted and tried to access the internet I got constant "connection interrupted" messages. I remember that I installed Microsoft.net framework 1.1 yesterday, despite the program's warnings about compatability. So I ran a .net removal utility to no avail, though I'm sure 3.5 is still here.

I called my ISP for support and we tried several things: restoring to an earlier time did no good, but we confirmed that there were no problems with my IP, ping-ing any website or releasing/renewing with ipconfig. I've tried disabling my firewalls and antivirus software but it makes no difference. I've also scanned my PC with multiple programs (Trend Micro, Malwarebytes, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool) and it didn't find anything. So I'm a little lost here...

Hi!
I own an HP laptop running on windows 10. Since I got it back in December, I've had the unresolved issue as follows:

Whenever the laptop is starting up, be that from sleep mode or powering it on from off, it connects automatically to my home network, as it should, but with a "Limited" connection. The only way to resolve the issue is to disconnect and reconnect, and it is fine until the laptop is closed or shut down.

As you can imagine, this got rather tedious rather quickly.

This is the only device in my house with this issue, among phones, tablets, gaming systems, and other laptops/desktops.

Any help or solutions are appreciated!

Things I've tried:
Resetting the computer (duh.)
Resetting my router.
Replacing my router and modem (This was for an unrelated issue, but it was done regardless)
Clearing and re-inputting my home network settings
Resetting the router like 30 more times
Joining this forum!

Please help.

Hi TechGuy,

I'm having some recent problems on my laptop. When I log-in and start using it, the performance starts slowing down. When I look at the Task Manager, I notice that the task called Explorer.exe takes up a lot of my CPU. In a couple of minutes, I also start getting Internet Explorer windows to pop-up on my screen (I normally use Firefox) with advertisements suggesting that my computer is infected and some software downloads that could help. I recently installed McAfee Total Works, or whatever they call their 10-in-1 software which is supposed to do it all. I ran several scans, and on some of them, if did find and disable the Generic.dx trojan. Even though it claims it is doing something, I don't notice any changes - Explorer.exe continues to bog me down, and the IE windows keep popping up to the point that I cannot use my computer effectively anymore.

IBM T-40 laptop (about three and a half years old)
Microsoft XP-Professional

Any pointers would be truly appreciated!!

Thanks,
