Preferred Solution: Unexpected Exceptions

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.)

Is there any way to add program exceptions to the UAC? I recently decided to start using it, and noticed that it prompts me whenever I start windows live messenger.. Bloody annoying. I want to add that to the exception list - is it possible?

A:Add exceptions to UAC?

There is no exception list that a user can change (that would be a huge attack surface).

BUT Live messenger should NOT be tripping it. At least not if it's a newer version. Are you using an old version? You might try upgrading to the one included in Windows Live Essentials...

To anyone that cares to listen,

So we are deciding to implement UAC in our rollout of Windows 7 this year. I do like UAC and the security that it does provide however I'm running into a bit of a road block with some users. I have these remote users who at some points may be off-site and they will need to install a printer. Well, it's fine and dandy if the print drivers are in Windows 7 but for those that aren't they are unable to install them. Reason being is that if they go to HP's or Brother's site(s) they are downloading the .exe file not the actual .inf files.

Has anyone run into this in your company? I'm trying to develop a way around it, some sort of exception for running these .exe's. This may not be possible but it doesn't hurt to ask.

The Windows Firewall window says that it "is blocking incoming network connections, except for the programs and services selected below'. The exceptions list five items, CallWave, File and Printer Sharing, Remote Assistance, Remote Desktopi, and UPnP Framework. I know little about any of these except the CallWave which I installed.

After trying to do some research, and not finding anything very helpful, I concluded that I don't have to add any of the programs I have as exceptions until Firewall notifies me that it is blocking a program and then I need to decide whether to except it.

Is that right, or no?

I also wonder about what guidelines a person should use in deciding whether or not to except a program that Firewall is blocking.

Thanks, grandpaw7

I have a list of a few exceptions on my firewall settings like messenger (msn and yahoo) and Lexxpps.exe (for the printer?)
My question is: When I go to 'add program' there are a few things in the list like microsoft antispyware, ccleaner, fax tools...should these be on the communication exceptions list for the firewall?

Thanks guys

50 view's a not one single reply to what seem's a fairly simple question. You guy's don't like me do you?
I think I'll stick to computer geeks at that other site because at least they answer their posters. If you post here with computer ignorance you are ignored like a homeless guy in the alley. Thanks alot computer masters for nothing because truthfully speaking I think you have helped me (to an extent) like twice out of the 50 something post I have made here...what a waste.

I have a Logitech Squeezebox Touch which requires that I add exceptions for 3 ports as follows:

Port 3483 UDP
Port 3483 TCP
Port 9000 TCP

The Squeezebox is being used to play music that is stored on my PC's HD and so needs access to that. When I disable the Win7 Firewall all works well but I don't want to do that.

I know how to do it, Firewall/advanced/new rule but I don't know exactly what to do.

Do I have to create an Inbound rule and an outbound rule for each of the 3 instances above (6 rules in all) or what?

Help would be appreciated.


A:Firewall Exceptions

Hi Simon,

I think thats correct an inbound and outbound rule for each port. This tutorial might also be of help:

I've recently Installed a burner ( no prob ). The problems began when I installed the HP cd software and adaptec. I was getting various conflicts and error mssgs. I uninstalled adaptec, cd stomper, and the HP cd software. As I was un-installing, I got a window warning my I would be deleting dll and inf files. I was trying to recover as much hard drive space as possible, so I said " yes to all " oops. Now, I get a blue fatal exception error screen when I attempt any of the following: 1) load software eg. Norton utilities 2) go to Windows explorer 3) go to Start, find 4) go to recycle bin ( to restore files) Do I need to formatt and re-load Win98, or can I restore missing files?

A:fatal exceptions

I also receive fatal exception notices from time to time...hopefully someone can explain just what those are and what they mean.

i have opened the windows firewall icon in Control Panel (because I am having trouble with a file sharing program) and am surprised to see in the list of exceptions 5 different ports (PORT_18863 and 4 others).
As I have no recollection of setting these up ,is it possibly the work of some kind of virus ,trojan or someothersuch?

Hi, recently 'something' deleted my DEP exceptions. I've not seen that happen for a long time. Then it happened again. I even suspected a ccleaner upgrade (hmm, surely not!).

Anyway, given that, do you know where they are held? Or how to back them up?

I tried regshot, before and after adding one, but it found nothing. (Compares registry snapshots).

Searched for DEP exceptions/back up/ backup/ location etc etc...


A:DEP exceptions- where are they held?

Hi, I can finally answer my own question:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
appears to be where the list is recorded.

Using Process Monitor with careful filtering, after several attempts, a list of exactly the exe's recorded as exceptions appears here.

Good Morning (from here in the UK)

Forgive me - my IT knowledge is somewhat lackingso this may be a silly question. brace urself.

I'm currently going through the steps on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html as my first attempt at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-system-check failed... and as you may guessi am turning on my windows XP firewall (i do believe i had one in place previously via AVG)

Although some of the exceptions to allow are common sense, others have absolutely no meaning to me. can someone please advice, should i allow the exceptions for:

slp_port(427) UDP and TCP, and UPnP framework?

To assist we do have a wireless hp printer, i do usually use uTorrent although not since getting this malware (this malware appears to have seeped through while uTorrent was off and i had multiple google image tabs open in firefoz)and the internet is via a router controlled by my brother.. who has tried to fix teh pc and basically said give up and buy a mac.

for the time being i am going to go ahead an allow these (seeing as firewall was off completely previously) but I would be grateful for any advice.

many thanks

I have a program that will not work when Avasts firewall is turned on. (It is a little program, not a commercial product) Anyway, how can I figure out what the name of the application is in Avast so I can add the exception and everything works well.
Avast puts their applications in sections. I recognize all of them but those in the "Other" category. Is there a way to determine what Avast thinks the name of this program is so that I can let it dial out whenever I start it?

Thanks for your consideration.

I tried to figure it out from Task Manager, but didn't have the know-how to do the job.

We have an internal domain environment xyz.com.au and an external facing dns domain
We are publishing both as proxy bypasses in IE 11 however attempts to resolve hosts in the
xyz.com domain are not bypassing proxy unless xyz.com
is the first entry in the bypass list.
- if we bypass "*.xyz.com;*.xyz.com.au", we can reach hosts in the
xyz.com domain directly.
- if we bypass "*.xyz.com.au;*.xyz.com", we can't reach hosts in the
xyz.com domain and we can see traffic for this domain is being send via the proxy.
Can anyone how proxy bypassing should be implemented for similar domains or explain the above behaviour?

Hi, running thru an issue with an MS escalation engineer, I was asked to add regsvr32.exe to my DEP exception list. (A fairly normal if questionable 'fix' for 'Registry Server has stopped working' e.g. when installing certain apps). Ok... ah, but..

Clicking Ok, Apply, the window closed. No error msg. Just the usual warning about the risks of disabling DEP...

When I checked the exception list, regsvr32.exe had not been added.

But I can add other application exe's, including one or two from C:\Windows\system32\ (most are protected from being added).

What could I look for?

And just out of curiosity, where is the list of exceptions held? Not in plain text in the registry...

Thanks! dal987

A:Unable to add regsvr32.exe to DEP exceptions

Hi, actually it seems that regsvr32.exe is simply not shown in the DEP exceptions list although DEP is disabled for it. Any ideas how to make it visible?

- latest discovery - it seems I have disabled DEP for regsvr32.exe; the problem is it isn't shown in the list of DEP exceptions, which suggests I can't reenable DEP for it.

I can enable/disable DEP for it if I globally enable/disable DEP using bcedit.

A number of problems have recently developed with my Sony Vaio laptop:1. 'svchost' exceptions which occur after logging on;2. URL redirection to shopping sites;3. AVG 9.0 update failures;3. Malwarebytes forced shutdown.I posted the details onto the AVG forum as it seemed to be related to upgrading from AVG 8.5 to AVG 9.0 Anti-Virus Free Edition:AVG forum postHowever, I have tried all the suggested fixes but, unfortunately, none has worked.The symptoms seem very similar to those posted by Kenickie on this BB:Infection that shuts down Malwarebytes, Proving very difficult to remove!I would be very grateful for any assistance in tracking this one down - presumably it could also be logging keystrokes.

A:URL redirection and svchost exceptions

Just for information, it turns out there were a number of trojan infections (18) which seem to have been cleaned successfully by Malwarebytes.

After gleaning information from other posts, essentially the steps which worked for me were:

1. Disconnected from the internet and removed AVG 9.0 completely;

2. Rebooted;

3. Ran a scan with Malwarebytes (removing AVG 9.0 enabled it to run for more than a few seconds) and used it to fix a number of Trojans which seem to have been residing in: msacm32.drv and wuasirvy.dll (C:\windows)
There were also infected dlls in the Macromedia user download area.

4. Reconnected to the internet and updated Malwarebytes and ran a full scan again which was clear.

Hope this helps anyone else experiencing similar symptoms. A reply on the AVG forum suggests running the Malwarebytes scan in safe mode.

I freshly installed Windows 8.1 on a new build about a week ago. Installed Steam, Chrome, Malwarebytes, and Skype, pretty much the only internet-accessing programs I have. My motherboard came with a "Killer Networking" function for Ethernet, but I do not use it and instead use its Intel Ethernet functionality.
I was looking through my Firewall settings today and noticed a few listings I'd not seen on my last 8.1 build (though I never really looked through my Firewall settings on it, to be fair). They were:
I've never seen or heard of these before today. I've never used any VPN software. Searching for these on Google (they were apparently common searches) revealed little information. Some links to Microsoft downloads, a few forum discussions. According to one person, they were related to Microsoft Apps on Windows 8/8.1 and were not harmful. According to another they should only be present if you've used VPN software - if not, something might be up. Another person on another forum gave advice to all users to block them on their Firewalls as "beneficial security tweaks." I've blocked them for the time being.
I did figure out that "Killer Networking" has a process open, which might be causing it, but I'm not sure. Computer's clean, with Malwarebytes and my AV reporting nothing malicious.
Are these exceptions normal, or should I be concerned?

Hi everyone! As you can probably tell with the topic title, I'm getting Machine
Check Exceptions like crazy now. The first one I ever had (until now) with this
computer was five months ago. Now all of a sudden, I'm getting them all the time
with the same error code at random moments. Here's what I get.


Technical Information:

***STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x8054D5F0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

I searched the internet for solutions and have run Windows Memory Check and
Memtest for about 12 hours with no errors. I also updated ALL drivers, double
checked to see if overclocking was enabled by accident, checked my hard drive,
cleaned my registry, checked for viruses and spyware, and went through all events
in control panel to see if there was a log of some kind. These seemed to start
occurring a few days ago, about the same time I installed IE 7. Could something
in IE be causing them? I did get one just after I unplugged my USB printer from
the computer, the printer is hot swappable and I never had any issues doing it.
I removed the drivers for the printer and reinstalled them and they still happen.

Here is my computer's specs.

I'm using a dial up provider called BasicISP.com (they seem fine, and cheap)
They provide a branded version of SlipStream, called HiSpeed.exe

When activated, of course it acts as a proxy pointing to
No Problem, works like a champ. Been on this package for ~45 days.

While tackling another issue, I had occasion to wander through my proxy exception list:

(Internet Options>Connections>Lan Settings>Advanced>Exceptions)

And I was amazed at the long list I found.
Dialers and XXX and advert.com, oh my!
Full list is pasted below.

This list comes and goes as the HiSpeed.exe is started and stopped. Of course my first thought was that BasicISP had placed this rubbish in their HiSpeed package.

As a test I installed HiSpeed on a clean machine, started it up, and nope! None of the garbage in the exceptions list.

I'm using Sygate firewall, NOD32 antivirus, and have scanned with Ad-Aware, Spybot and MS AntiSpyware, all of which give me a clean bill of health. WinXP SP2, clean install only about twenty days old. (sigh)

I probably shouldn't use windows firewall in itself, i tried zone alarm once but found it difficult to use.
Anyway in the control panel>security centre>windows firewall, in the exceptions section there are a number of programs. Some aren't checked, but the following are:

remote assistance (i don't know what this is about)
windows live messenger 8.0
windows live messenger 8.0 phone
yahoo! ft server
yahoo! messenger

basically, are these exceptions safe? would unchecking them do anything different

A:Windows Firewall Exceptions

Hi niall...

Remote Assistance is a program built into Windows XP to enable users to get technical support from friends/professionals via their internet connection - if it's not something you use, you can remove it from the exceptions list. The same applies to Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo too.

The other two listed are associated with your AVG Anti-Virus program.

I don't think unchecking them will cause any problems though you will get the notification popup asking for access when those programs are used in the future.

I see a ton of postings on the web about IE9 ignoring group policy pop-up blocker exceptions, but I'm having the same issue with IE11.

Afterward, I can see on a Windows 7 test computer that a registry entry has been made in "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\Allow" for the site I wish to exclude.  I take this as proof my group policy setting has
been applied.  But, it has no effect.  The site still doesn't work, and the URL is still not listed in the pop-up exceptions list in IE. 

I also tried using the same Group Policy setting under the computer policies, which likewise resulted in a new registry entry in "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\Allow".  This also fails to work, and does not
result in the site in questions appearing in the exception list.
In looking through the registry, I see that any manually added pop-up exceptions are stored in "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\New Windows\Allow".  If I manually add my site here, or via the IE gui, then the site works as expected.
What am I missing here? Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

SmartScreen Filter seems like a good idea on the face of things, but I think that a few changes are in order:

1. Allow user defined exceptions for frequently used applications.I am currently playing through Avernum: Escape from the Pit, a remake of a classic turn-based isometric adventure RPG. The problem is that every time I launch the app from my desktop or directly from the .exe, SmartScreen blocks it. I went into the .exe's properties and tried to turn off the SmartScreen feature for this app, but it didn't seem to make any changes after hitting Apply. I don't want to turn off SmartScreen completely because of it's value in preventing malicious software from running, but I also don't want to half to ignore the warning every time I launch this app.
2. Warn us before Windows sends data to Microsoft.
I'm not aware of any feature in the SmartScreen Filter that warns the user that Windows is transmitting data to MS. This isn't a big deal for me, but you can bet that at some point down the line, someone will cry fowl about a privacy invasion. Just like Windows error reports, users need to see what is being sent and need to know when it is being sent. An assurance that a name will never be attached to the report is also important. This isn't so much for me as it is for a hypothetical situation in the future that could get MS in hot water.
Perhaps these changes have already been implemented in the RTM, but I haven't seen it yet. I look forward to a final release of Windows 8 and... Read more

Found a number of Cookies that I wanted BLOCKED, that I don't even know how they got on my system, like Clickserve.cc-dt.com, Specificclick.net, Etc. Well, all has gone fine with my other Browsers, except for Firefox.

Firefox will NOT Keep the Blocks that I put on!! The minute that I Log out of the Privacy, and Cookie Exceptions, they are all right back again!!

I have even tried turning Off System Restore, logging off my computer, then back on, and they are still there, after having Blocked them all. The other 2 browsers are no problem.

I'd like to have an antivirus that when I set an exemption for a file, it will ignore that file everywhere. There are many things like utility programs, demos (especially ones from Farbrausch) and other things using unusual programming techniques that cause antivirus and antimalware programs to have a fit.

Currently, Windows Defender is insistent upon deleting the setup.exe for Kerbal Space Program 1.05.

I want a security program that when I tell it to ignore a specific program, it ignores it no matter where it is on my computer, not just in a specific location so that if I move it or want to run it from a USB stick it pounces on it and deletes it. I've had some that would allow an exception to be set but would still attack and delete when I'd try to run it.

Avast does NOT fit this bill, despite calling its exceptions "global". It only works by full path location. Set it to ignore something on a USB stick and if the drive letter changes it will delete the file.

I don't care *how* it sets a recognition for a specific file, MD5 hash or some "fingerprint", as long as when told to leave something alone it will obey me without question.

Hello all,

I have just created an account on this forum for this specific problem.
5 days ago (thereabouts) our new computer was delivered.
It's a powerful, custom built gaming computer, yet it fails at the thing it was designed to do: play games.
All of these games worked fine on my old XP, but ran badly.
On this new Windows 7 64 bit it is the opposite. The games run brilliantly, then crash.
This is very frustrating for me, because I do not expect a computer of this power to do such a thing.
However, there is an exception:
any games that do not run a 3D engine usually do not crash (Such as FTL: Faster Than Light).
Unfortunately, Minecraft also eventually crashes the computer.
he crashing is random, but will happen eventually, unless I quit the game.
If you need my system specs, tell me where to find them and I will either edit this thread and put them in, or post a reply with the specs.
Also, one thing I have noticed:
I am not sure, but the computer is saying something about an Nvidia Driver error.
Also, I cannot install SP1, as the Readiness Tool does not install either.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope the problem can be fixed soon, as I am becoming frustrated.

P.S: I have just activated Do not Automatically Restart. I will post a crash if I can.

We're unfortunate enough to have to use a proxy server for web access. I use group policy preferences-applied registry keys to configure these settings since Microsoft removed them from group policy with IE11 (great idea...). The settings are applied, but
they don't work (shocker). Whitelisting "site.domain.com" with the proxy should allow users to https://site.domain.com/directory, but it doesn't. I've read a bunch of tutorials on how to do this, but their advice is futile. I can configure it, but
Windows won't use it. Any ideas where i could be going wrong?

I really like the 'show desktop' feature in Windows 7, but have Winamp setup so that it is not in the way of other windows, and is set to be always on top.

Is there a way to prevent it from being minimized when using the show desktop button? Of course I would still like to minimize it when I click the button.

A:Show desktop button, exceptions?

Hello foreversilent004,

Sorry, there is no way to modify the function of the show desktop button without some serious hacking. What you can do, though, is instead of clicking that button, press Winkey+M. This minimizes all windows, not show the desktop, so it will not hide the windows set to stay on top.

Hope this helps,

I need to add to the exception list in my firewall and antivirus. how do I access and add to the list.

A:Add to list of exceptions in firewall and antivirus

Each AV and Firewall has it's own method for doing that.

Unless we know the name of the AV and the name of the Firewall, we cannot assist you.

Using XP and Word 2003.

When typing a document, noticed some sentences were not beginning with initial caps. Discovered that in Autocorrects, there are exceptions to capitalizing the first word of a sentence. I may have 200-300 exceptions. I can delete each one individually, but cannot delete all of the exceptions. I tried Alt+A which does not work. I tried holding the shift key down while selecting more than one. That does not work.

Is there a way to delete these exceptions, without having to do them one at a time?

A:how to delete exceptions to initial caps

You do realize that if you delete them all and rely on AutoCorrect to capitalize the first word of every sentence instead of typing the traditional way and capitalizing as you go, you may end up with capital letters in the middle of sentences where you don't want them. The entries listed there are to prevent the system from automatically capitalizing the next letter after an abbreviation.

I don't know the answer to your question but wanted to be sure you realize this before going ahead and deleting them all.

I'm running Vista Home Basic SP2, currently without any antivirus software or additional firewall installed.
I uninstalled a VMWare product, and now I can't connect to the internet while the Windows Firewall is turned on.
I've clicked the option to reset the firewall to recommended settings. I also deleted all the programs from the exception list and re-added them, but these programs still can't access the internet.
Just in case it's important, Vista came pre-installed with my laptop and I have no recovery CD. The recovery partition doesn't appear to work, so I don't think I have any way of re-installing the firewall.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

A:Vista firewall exceptions not working

Without the recovery or repair disk, a system file checker is not an option at this point. What does it mean when recovery partition is not working? Please post the computer model next time.

While IE 5 is open and I disconnect from the internet, I get a blue screen with
a Fatal Exception ( 06 has occured at 0028:00000001)
Then when pressing next key to continue it then goes to "Illegal Operation" performed.
Details claim:

WINKWI caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0247:bff7b9a6.

I then have to reboot and also remove and re-install the modem or it will not connect.
Dials, but won't connect to the ISP.

All of this thanks to the very smart Klez Worm Virus. I've cleaned and cleaned but can't get it
to stop. Systems Config Utility has added the WINK.exe files in the startup.
I've used the Klez removal tool to re-clean. But it won't delete the drop files and it's creating
a WINK folder.
It continues to reincarnate!

Before, I also received a Fatal Exception "WINKQo caused a divide error in module WINKQo.exe at
I've also done a scanreg/restore.

Have you installed the Microsoft Outlook patch? And are you opening emails that might be infected?


Try running an online scan to get an exact identification of the virus version:


And post a copy of your startup log by running StartupLog.com and copy/pasting the full contents of the StartUp.log file (but not stubpaths.txt) to a reply.


Panamoe, please post antivirus questions in the Security forum, where this is being moved to.

And have you tried running that fix tool from a floppy disk, so as to ensure nothing is running that it can't delete? You want to run it from true DOS, not from Windows DOS.
