Windows Firewall Is Giving Me All Kinds of Problems

Q: Windows Firewall Is Giving Me All Kinds of Problems

I attempted to install the Netflix application on my Windows 8 laptop, and it told me there was an issue with the firewall.
 
It gave me the Error Code 5, so I fixed it with this video. The instructions within got rid of the Error 5; however, I'm now getting the following message when I attempt to start the firewall from "Services."
 

 
There reason I'm trying to start it from Services is because when I try to start the Firewall and "Use recommended settings" from settings page, it displays this, and loads for a second, and then doesn't do anything.
 

Also, I'm not sure if this is relevant or not, but when I try to start Windows Defender, it shows this.
 

 
I don't know what to do, and this is frustrating me to no end.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I solved all kinds of software problems instantly when I uninstalled Computer Associates security suite. For some reason, once that program is installed, there is no way to turn it off. And, it wreaks havoc on software installations. Once I uninstalled it, all of my Windows 7 software installation woes were gone. Go figure!

Now I am trying the Symantec/Norton. I will keep everyone posted as to how that goes. So far, so good.

Ever since I installed Windows 7 and IE 9 my computer has been giving me fits. Pages and games load extremely slow and I have to refresh constantly. Windows live mail is a nightmare as it takes over 2 minutes to load an email just so that I can delete it. Can I uninstall IE 9 without causing any problems on my computer? And will it revert back to IE 8? I'm thinking that IE 9 is what is giving me such problems and I have heard that it causes a lot of problems with other programs and games. I scan and defrag all the time so I know that isn't my problem with too much junk on the computer. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello all,

I used to use incredimail until I got a new computer with Vista on it. I installed incredimail, and used it (kind of) until I found out it wasn't compatible with Vista, and then uninstalled. I switched over to Windows Mail and have a question.

First off, I HATE IT. I know im a nerd, but I love all the little icons and themes that incredimail has...and windows mail appears to have none of. Well...to the question...

I set up my account, and email works just fine, but there is a problem with attachments. I can receive (for instance) a pdf and save it to my computer. If I open it from its saved location, it opens up perfectly. If I click on the attachment in my email and try to open it that way, I get an error that states something like "there is no file extension set for that file. Please go into control panel and set one."

I know there is a file extension set, because I went into control panel and checked, but it has the acrobat reader icon for the file, and I can open it pefectly if it is saved to my desktop.

Does anyone have an idea why I can open the pdf files perfectly as long as it is saved to the computer, but if I try to open it from Windows Mail, it gives me that file extension error?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
 

A:Windows Mail is giving me problems

It has something to do with Vista's tight security. With XP, I can open PDF files either way.

I recently noticed that the system was trying to do 7 updates every day at closedown, and found that update was giving a return code of 800736b3.

I have run SURT several times, and it doesn't seem to give any results (or should I be looking somewhere else?).

I ran sfc /scannow and extracted the results and they are in sfcdetails.txt (attached). SFC said there were some files it couldn't fix, even though sfcdetails.txt says it has fixed all of them.

CBS.zip is much too big to upload using the paperclip - is there another way?

I tried restoring to an earlier restore point, and unfortunately all the attempted updates have flushed my list of restore points - and the oldest few all give me a return code of x00000022.

Not sure if this is one problem or two...! I am reluctant to do a System Recovery as it sounds pretty drastic - help would be much appreciated!

I was like, really excited to get it, then it started giving me problems. ._.

Yesterday, the night I got it, I was playing The Sims 3, and I found that I just couldn't type a thing. Not a thing. I typed things into the box, nothing came out. Thank God for the randomize name feature or I wouldn't have been able to name my Sims. Clicking was okay, and I restarted, haven't had this problem since.

Then about 15 minutes ago, I was happily playing The Sims 3 again, and browsing the web on Firefox, when suddenly my cursor froze. I looked down, and the red light was on. I tried using the arrow keys to scroll down the page, but it gave me a beep. I restarted and it worked fine again.

Five minutes later, the same thing happened, only that I could use my arrow keys to scroll, not like the first time.

Also, one more thing. When I refresh the page in any browser, it sends me straight back to my home page (Google). Is this a feature of Windows 7, or a bug? I'm not really sure since I've been using XP all along. Help please?

I was reading this thread:
http://forums.techguy.org/t105845/s48e4dca6bc6e32510b25ab28cdf7c337.html
and it got me thinking, what programs do you guys allow full permission to access the internet from within your firewall configurations?

I use NIS 2002. I have lots of programs that have "Automatic" or "Permit All" access in the firewall access panel. I have things such as Kazaa Lite, Acrobat Reader, MS Word, AIM set up to get access automatically, or to Permit All. Bad idea?

I wouldn't mind okaying things each time if necessary. But, other family users of this computer have no patience for this stuff, don't even want to think about computers, and consider me paranoid. If I find out this firewall setup isn't a good idea, they will laugh in my face AND will howl if I try to run a tighter ship. My husband would be the worst complainer and would actually get quite bad-tempered over an action like that. So I might not be able to change it even if you say I should...still I want to know.

Also!! - - my NIS 2002 firewall access panel lets me grant or block access to the programs listed there by clicking and selecting the access level from a list of four. (Block, Remove, and TWO kinds of access, Permit All and Automatic. ) What's the difference between Permit All and Automatic? They must be different; if they were the same they wouldn't offer them together to choose between them, right?
 

A:Giving programs permission for internet access via Firewall controls

I would give the programs you've listed automatic access. And for peace in the house, I'd give access to any programs your family regularly uses. We use NIS at work and I can't stand manually allowing access each and every time I want a prog to get on the net. Not much point in that as you're going to allow it anyway.

For an explanation of what "automatic" vs. "permit' check out this page. About half way down.

The main purpose of your firewall is to prevent malicious port probes and to keep things like trojans on your machine from communicating over the net.

Hi. I am running Windows XP and my problems started a few weeks ago with my computer just running slowly. My CPU usage was routinely at or near 100%, so after chasing down all of the process listed in my task manager, I determined that I have 2 that are possible trojan horses, LSASS.exe and CSRSS.exe. I cannot end either from the task manager. I get the message: "Unable to Terminate Process. THis is a critical system process. Task Manager cannot end this process." I am not a computer genius. I have no idea where else to look for these programs to end/delete them. SO.. I downloaded Malware Removal Bot, which didn't seem to make a difference. We noticed that my firewall kept being turned off everytime I restarted the computer. Most recently, my task bar had disappeared. I have tried the CTRL/ESCP and another method that took me through the following steps: Please press the following buttons in ascending order CTRL-ALT-DEL
-Click on "File" and type in Regedit.exe
-Click "OK"
-Click on "File" then "Export" and special destination to save a back-up of the "Registry" in case anything goes haywire.Give it a special name, say Registry back-up then click save.
-When back up is done, proceed to the steps below within the "Registry" interface.

Hi,

Please stop trying to fix things on your own from now. Csrss.exe and Lsass.exe are both system processes, you cannot end them using taskmanager.

Reboot your computer and follow our pre-posting process outlined here:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html

After running through all the steps, you shall have a proper set of logs. Please post them.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.

Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within three days this thread will be closed.

My PC specifications:

Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3
ASUS Motherboard SocketAM/AM2 - Model M2N (installed latest chipset drivers)
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ 2,2 GHz (Cool'n Quiet - Disabled in BIOS)
2 x 1024 MB RAM = 2048 MB RAM

SoundMAX HD Integrated Audio (installed latest audio drivers)

First of all, I have recently got back to XP from Vista, because of full cpu usage and stuff. I have installed the OS 2 times. First time it was because of those slowing downs and lock-ups, freezes. It was SP2. I've reinstalled it again recently with SP3 and latest drivers for all hardware. However, for an unknown reason I am getting these strange problems again.

Here are some of the things that happen to me:
- Sometimes, while I play World of Warcraft, the game freezes/lock's up
- Sometimes, while I play World of Warcraft, the whole system freezes and I have to restart the computer
- When I start/exit an old game from 2000 called Deus Ex, the system goes into standby mode
- When I sign-in into Windows Live Messenger (8.5.1302.1018) it goes into the Not Responding state and I have to wait 20 seconds before it works properly
- While browsing (using Firefox) programs one-by-one go into Not Responding state and then the state is gone after 20-40 seconds

I have no idea what is causing all of this, or if it is even related. I have a new Sony Vaio RA VGC-RA840G Desktop. Well I have had it 4 or 5 months.

Anyways I will Try to make this clear. But I am one of those not very pc savy people.

Dont know if this is needed but the pc states:

Performance: Intel Pentium D processor speed 2.80 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 2MBL2 Cache, 1 GB PC2-4200 533MHz, DDR2 Windows XP Media Center 2005

Graphics and Audio: PCI Express 1 x16, ATI Radeon X300 Graphics 125 MB Intel HD audio, 5.1 ch support

other things listed- prob unrelated

(whatever all that means)

My husband says this is a 64 bit core processor. (But I didn't find that printed on the pc)

Microsoft Office 2003
Norton Internet Security 2005 (updates automatically)

Webroot Spysweeper Version 3.5.0 (must update manually)

Security is paid versions

Now for the Problems:
1. Reboot is Always slow, or doesn't work at all

If I go to restart computer, since the Very beginning this pc has always been Much slower then all of the other pcs I have used including ones with 95, 98, and 2000

Today- couldn't reboot at all
-restart wouldn't do anything
-off button, screen would go black. when turned back on- pc still locked up (3X) Finally pulled the plug

2. Updates on software Won't download, if it does download it won't run correctly, or at all. Problems connecting or keeping connection with downloaded programs

1st thing to do is online av scan (it's better than onboard av: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Then install SpywareBlaster (it keeps most nasties at bay: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

The run a check on your system files; RUN, type cmd, then type sfc /scannow (note space) and pop in xp os disc.

Another thing is get Startup Inspector which tells all the startup progs so you can decide which ones to load: http://www.windowsstartup.com/

BTW it may be best to reload xp over itself (a repair), but we'll do that if none of this works.

I'm visiting my aunt and always have to be online for my work, unfortunatly her computer has so many problems I can't. The first thing I noticed was the colors were all messed up, the background picture is blocky, and the icons have started to turn black (not the entire icon just where it says what it is like explorer or my documents). When I did finally get online (it's really slow as well) there were ads popping up on almost every page. I was reading through some of the other threads here and found some pretty helpful stuff but I'd really like to have someone to help me specifically with this. She doesn't have a windows me disk, so I can't exactly reinstall it.

I just installed Norton SystemWorks and now I've got all kinds of stuff going on. I have a weird thing with my IE happening where I have it set to my start page and now when I open it it keeps going back to "about: Blank" It won't stay on the page I've set for my home page. I never had any indications from Norton AntiVirus that I previously had installed nor my Adaware program. Now I keep getting all these adaware warnings and when I delete them they just keep coming back to. I really don't want to have to reformat I have too much stuff on my puter.

Here is what I keep getting messages on. I'll have to maybe send them in 2 or 3 parts...

I told it to delete them all but it did not delete the tibs5.exe. When I do a search for the items it will let me delete some to the trash bin but not others...

I have two 80 gig hard drives and I only have text files and photo files on it, plus a back up to my outlook contacts and copies of my emails. If I do a reformat to my C drive will it affect my E drive that has no other stuff on it but those I've listed? If I do a reformat will it even get rid of this crap? I've never had a worm, virus or anything in the 15 years I've been online... This just sucks.

Welcome to TSF.

We'll help you get rid of this. First, you need to give us this log:

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Reinstaling Firefox same problem. Also Yahoo Messenger dosen't eaven start, giving that "eror" right after starting. Uninstalled it, but could not install it back, it gives same error when it tries to download his install files. Internet explorer7 has NONE of theese problesm, it works normally. Forgot to say that i tried Firefox in safe mode also, no luck; tried to create a diferent profile to Firefox, again no luck. Now Age of Conan can't eaven connect eventually giving me that error.

Would appreciate input from anyone who has experienced/fixed these issues in W7!

First - Dell Inspiron 530, 3GB RAM, 128MB NVIDIA 8300 GS (upgrading to this beast as soon as it arrives), all latest drivers as provided by Windows Update and official Windows 7 Hardware Support page.

-iTunes will start, but after about 10 seconds it freezes. Music will continue playing until I eject the CD or turn off the computer, but the UI is non-responsive. Trying to end the process through Task Manager is useless.

-Unable to shut down the computer without pressing and holding the power button. I had this problem in Vista awhile back and traced it back to either the audio or video drivers. Unable to trace this one as of yet.

-Abnormal Program Terminations in Firefox all the time. I usually browse with 3+ tabs open, but never had a problem in Vista.

-System Restore left overnight, woke up to find it still "restoring the registry". Likely related to the computers inability to shut down

-Various small glitches, such as the desktop (set to be straight black, no photos) randomly freaking out and showing 20-40 pixel high rows of different 'captures' of past screen activity. Fixed by right-clicking > Personalize > problem goes away

-Volume control is too loud - on its lowest setting using the system tray icon, the volume is far louder than it should be. If I turn it up past 6-7 notches, it's blasting (out of 100)

Thanks in advance - loving everything else about W7 so far

Personally, if I see this kind of mess happening on my system, I'd just go ahead and do a clean install.

On drivers: I'd also suggest going directly to your components manufacturer site to check the drivers from there as some just churns up new drivers almost regularly.

On iTunes: There's been no real problems with this program especially the latest one. A reinstall of the latest from apple might do the trick.

On Shut Downs: I'd check event viewer for clues as to what processes are holding the shut down process. You can use a registry tweak to shorten windows wait time on forcing processes to end;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
WaitToKillServiceTimeout = 5000

On FireFox: Re-install the latest package available, here

On System Restore: Probably a corrupt system restore point, software/hardware conflict, check error codes in Event Viewer. I'd look carefully for loaded forced devices that are not vista compatible (i.e. USB devices, Old sound cards, unsupported external connections, etc.)

On Desktop Display: points to a faulty video driver

On Volume: driver issue, reinstall audio drivers

Please let us know how it turns out for yah

I've recently been infected with Smitfraud-c and thought I had it under control using advice previously posted on this forum. Since then, my PC is acting very strangly. I've got Spybot - S&D installed and it occasionally finds worms and malware and says it removes them. However, I still get strange behavior: IE hijacks, V E R Y slow internet speeds, constant attempts to change/add values in the registry, system crashes. I just can't seem to kick this thing, whatever it is. I have Avast anti-virus installed and the real-time protection finds files in my Program Files directory named tmp******.exe. I can delete them but they keep coming back. My Windows firewalled is being disabled also. I've run HiJackThis and I'm posting the log hoping someone can help. The 'O21' entries below are what are continually trying to be inserted into my registry. I haven't allowed it because I don't know what they are.

Hi! Recently I started having all kinds of problems with my homebuilt system
that worked fine for about 8 months. Here's my setup:

MB: Asus P5B Deluxe
CPU: Pentium Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz
RAM: 4 x CM2X1024-6400 (4GB)
2x74GB WD Raptor hard drives in RAID0 - OS is there
1x250GB WD hard drive
1x500GB WD hard drive
1x250GB WD external hard drive
Video Card: nVidia GeForce 7900GS 256MB
Sound Card: Creative Audigy 4

So, about a month ago the system stopped booting (I had the CPU overclocked
to 3GHz or so). Clearing CMOS every time was basically the only way to boot
it. I decided to upgrade BIOS, upgrade failed and totally killed the
motherboard. Later I read on ASUS forums that this had happened to everyone
who tried to upgrade BIOS in P5B Deluxe in Vista (the only way to do it was
through BIOS setup). I ordered exactly the same model, but even with the new
board these problems did not go away. At least I know that the motherboard
is not the problem.
The system now never starts up when I turn it on the first time. I am
getting blue screens, no POST at all, or Vista just hangs during startup.
It's always something different. Yesterday, for example, I had to clear CMOS
in order to finally load the OS. Once the system loads the first time, I can
reboot it however many times I want - no problems. Then, on the next day
problems start again. When I turned it on earlier today, the system began
turning off and on by itself. Then, it froze a couple of times in BIOS
setup, froze a few ... Read more

Hey, all. I've got some symptoms I've seen from others with search engine redirects. I saw it get fixed by some by going into Safe Mode and running SUPERAntiSpyware and setting it to close all browsers, check cookies, not start on boot, and to terminate memory threats, but that got me nowhere. Some said to run TDSSKiller, which reports that "atapi.sys" is infected and that it will remove it, but it doesn't. Before those more specific fixes, I've run AVG, Avast, Avir, SUPERAntiSpyware, and MBAM all numerous times, with varied results. They squashed some of the problems, but there are still some lingering. Thanks in advance for all you guys do, and I look forward to your suggestions.

I have had so many problems in the past little bit with my two laptops. I would like to get them both taken care of. I will start with the better of the two first. This one, shall I say, is the least "taken over". I have read this forum and many postings, and you guys know your stuff. I don't know too much about computers, but I have general knowledge.This computer is running Windows Vista 32-bit. I had an alert about 2 months ago from AVG that it detected a virus. After that my computer didn't run right. I then did a reinstall of my OS and thought everything was ok. Now, for the last two months, the computer has been forcing itself to shut down when I place it in sleep mode; it does this by going to a blue screen; so, I ran some scans on the computer, but nothing turned up...it showed the computer was clean. Then, I started trying to access other files on my computer and it was giving me the message that either I couldn't access that file since it was being used by another user or my access was denied. I am the only user that it shows on the computer; even in safe mode, it doesn't show any other user. Now, the largest problem is, my "D: drive" has had its name changed to "Access Denied"....this is the actual name that is on the screen when you go into My Computer. I am unable to access my D: Drive. This is where my drivers are located and I do not have access to any of this.Can anyone please help out? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.DDS... Read more

ok, here is the story...

The other day I was watching a DVD and it is one that I have watched many times. After the dvd was done, my computer went into a power saving mode, and I was not able to wiggle the mouse and bring the computer back.

I reset the computer trying to bring up the system, and it crashed at the Vista loading screen. I tried restarting it multiple times, and sometimes it would take well over 30 mins of just leaving my computer alone and I would eventually get to the point where I could put my password in. When I did that it just did nothing.

Sometimes I would get a BSoD and sometimes I wouldn't. I ran many tolls on the drive including dskchk, Spinright, and Bart PE. I was able to save all the data with Bart PE, and Spinright saw no errors that it needed to correct... check disk did however. I used seatools, and was convinced that it was a problem with the HDD. I have sent it back to seagate as the tech guy came to the conclusion that I needed a replacement for the HDD.

Well today I tried to install a fresh version of windows XP on another hdd that I had perfomed a low level format on a long time ago. The drive is a good drive, and has worked just recently in another comptuer. I installed all of windows XP on it, and when the installation was finished, I got the loading screen to go to the first screen of windows XP. Well, now I am getting the BSoD with that as well.

I was sure that it was the other HDD, but now that this other HDD... Read more

Hello,
I apologize, I know I've read on this forum that you would like for everyone to be specific with their problems, however, I have many here, and I think they may all somehow be related.

In No specific order:
My media buttons on my keyboard don't work (including volume knob), and my mouse has also been acting goofy (scrolling too slow then speeding up & having me all over the place), If I click on start-control panel, my computer freezes and has to be turned off by the on/off button. All programs and web pages open VERY slowly, I cannot open any attachments in my outlook express email program (drop-down of paper-clip is shaded), After running spy-bot, I have a long list of "missing shared DLL's" and "wrong app path" in Registry. My computer shut-down is never complete without a pop-up that states "One-Touch Multimedia keyboard: This program is not responding", many of my other programs do not respond on a regular basis also. Whew, I think that's all the problems.

I have a HP Pavilion Intel Celeron Processor with 71% free system resources, 255.0 MB of Ram, 32-bit file system, & 32-bit virtual memory. My keyboard is HP (Netropa?) one-Touch Multimedia & my mouse is a Microsoft Trackball optical. My OS is Windows 98SE.
