Internet Explorer Settings-Protected Mode question

Q: Internet Explorer Settings-Protected Mode question

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

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 :)

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.

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?

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.
Symptoms

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).
Workarounds
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.
Thoughts
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 ?

Thanks

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.

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.

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.

Hi,
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.
Leo.

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^_^

Hello,
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

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?

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?

A couple of weeks back I came across a link on how to improve/speed up IE7 on these forums. I have spent the whole morning searching for it but can't find it again.

The link in question detailed how IE connects to the net using one of three settings.

It gave three options from always showing the most current page (default setting) which it said was the slowest setting to one which it said was the fastest but recomended the second one and to which I clicked and applied ok.

Since doing this i have had minor probs with certain sites I visit and would like to undo the changes to see if that is the solution but I cannot find the link and cannot remember where on my PC to change it back.

I am sorry if this is vague but hopefully someone will know what I am talking about.

A:Internet Explorer Settings

I don't know the answer to your specific problem but I'd be very wary of adding Games Sites to your Trusted Zone - that's really leaving yourself open to attack from any malware running around on those sites (and there will be plenty). What anti-virus and anti-spyware protection are you running at the moment?You should check your system with some online scans:Online trojan scanner: http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/Here are some links to free online Anti-Virus scans. They do take some time to load and run and in some cases you can only use Internet Explorer, with ActiveX enabled, to access them but they are an excellent support for your existing anti-virus program.

Hi,

I can't seem to modify the security settings for IE. Specifically I am trying to log in to my Yahoo e-mail account and I get a message saying "The browser you're using refuses to sign in (cookies rejected)". The privacy report says that, indeed, several versions of the yahoo web-site have cookies blocked even though right clicking on the sites clearly shows that "Always Accept cookies from this site" is selected. I can see nothing wrong with the cookie settings and have cleared caches, temp files etc as suggested by many other solutions out there. Internet search suggests that there should be a P3P entry in the registry but I can't see it anywhere. Where would these records be? I've run Ad-Aware and SpyBot with no improvement.

The PC is running Ranger, a schools based OS but I've removed it with no difference.

XP Windows Pro SP2, IE 6.

Any thoughts gratefully received.

Regards,

Paul.

Have you tried moving Yahoo into your "trusted sites?"

I cannot paste the TSG SysInfo!
When I open Internet Explorer "This page cannot be displayed" or "Website doesn't appear to be valid" appears.
I also have problems with "LAN" settings. When using Google and going to a webpage I receive a message that No proxy server available or page cannot be displayed. I have changed the settings in Google settings and Internet Explorer but this message keeps returning. What can I do other than keep changing the settings?
 

A:Internet Explorer & LAN settings

Hi, I use Internet Explorer 6 with SP2 and the toolbars jump between
the normal ones with file edit view fav tools help kind of thing to some really stupid
style where everything is hidden. How can I get it to stay on the regular toolbar page and not do that weird kind of page? I cant even describe it correctly but want just normal page. Dont see how to reset it to that style. Thanks

A:Internet Explorer settings

Click on VIEW - TOOLBARS, and select the ones you want

OR

Right-click anywhere on the toolbars, and add the ones you want or customize.

THEN

When its the way you like it, right-click anywhere on the toolbars and select "Lock the Toolbars".

Whats the best security settings for internet exporer ? also for trusted sites? please help
 

A:~Internet explorer settings~

Make sure your ActiveX controls are set as follows:

Go to Internet Options - Security - Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."

In the ActiveX section, set the first two options (Download signed and
unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX
controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

Is there any way, i can save the setting of Internet Explorer? My PC has been set up for NTL Home Broadband! The installation disc wouldn’t run on my system, so I had to call them up and set it up over the phone! With them setting up IE with me assessing various pages on the NTL site, for my IE to recognize the broadband!! What I really want to do it maybe reinstall windows from scratch… deleted everything, clean the registry etc!!!! but id rather not have the £10 phone bill to call NTL again for them to set me up on broadband! So is there a way to save all these setting it a CDR or whatever, then put them setting on the newly formatted PC?

I am having problems with playing YOU TUBE videos. In my programs list under
the START menu there are 2 Internet Explorer programs ie Internet Explorer &
Internet Explorer (X64) . If I highlight the (x64) version and disable the POP UP
BLOCKER via the TOOLS button I can play a YOU TUBE video but only in the
one browsing session ie. as soon as I go back to open another session using
GOOGLE search YOU TUBE won't play.
Also I notice that I am getting a lot of frozen screens when browsing
with a message YOUR BROWSING SESSION HAS ENCOUNTERED PROBLEMS.
ARE these problems related? I was thinking of RESETTING INTERNET EXPLORER
but this sounds a bit dangerous.
ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE

Ice, welcome to Sevenforums!

Reseting it is a good idea. It will ask if you want to keep personal settings. After, go to get.adobe.com/flashplayer and download flashplayer to your desktop. Uninstall adobe flashplayer from contol panel in favor of installing this newer version. Check add-ons in internet explorer and make sure all the ones you want are there and none other. Having IEx64 and normal IE is standard on a x64 system, which you have. They are 2 versions of the same browser, but have about the same speed (for IE9). I'd use the normal one due to compatability reasons. Hope this helps

Nevermind... I found out that you dont set your IP in Internet Explorer. You set it when you configure yout network card. Is there a file that saves the settings of your network card such as the ip it is broadcasted over a LAN at? The reason I am interested is because I am a currently a highschool student and in a computer tech class. My job is to try to find a way around the blocking software. I relized that if I set my card to broadcast across the LAN with an IP that is in the exeption list on the blocking software.

If you could help me out in finding the file that stores the NIC settings I would be very greatful.

Thanks,

I was having some problems with my internet connection (which have been resolved) but my friend came over and hastily set all of my Internet Explorer settings back to default to "solve the problem".

can someone lead me to the right direction to get the settings so that they give me the most security/safety/control? (like what should and shouldn't be checkmarked, etc) thanks in advance!

As a whole, IE is a fairly secure environment. If wanted you can go into the security tab and set your internet setting to High instead of medium. The best thing to do is to ensure you have all your windows updates completed and ensure you have some type of Antivirus/Antispyware scanners to find anything that may be lurking on your computer already. Below is a list of my most used Antispyware programs. YOu can only have one Antivirus but you can have as many antispyware programs as your heart desires and you can never have to many.

Microsoft Anti-Spyware (for Win2000/WinXP only)

i guess the title was pretty vague... but i'm really not sure how to word my question.

My mom just got a new pc...running windows vista... she's a real estate agent.. and she's been trying to perform search on her mls database.... however, everytiem she presses "search" the page doesnt seem to load. i've tried turning off firewall, setting the site as a trusted site, changing the security level to low... and nothing seems to be working...

i'm not sure if anyone here would know about the database's system. but its something created from

" Stratus MLS is a trademark of Stratus Data Systems, Inc."
if anyone can shed some light upon me... i'd deeply appreciate it.
thanks a lot for anyone who's reading this.
her computer is running on IE7, 256bit? and its on vista home premium
