Popup window is going behind the IE window in IE8 Beta2 Vista Protected Mode ON

Q: Popup window is going behind the IE window in IE8 Beta2 Vista Protected Mode ON

Hi ,

I am developing a BHO in C# that is using Win32 Window with the toolbar , In all the scenarios in IE6, IE7 XP, Vista and IE8 Xp this window is displaying correctly on before IE window i.e it is showing in front, But in Vista IE Protected mode ON, this window is showing behind the IE Main Window,

How to Bring this window before the IE main in Vista Protected Mode ON.

Is there any security restrictions for this ?

Any Help would be appreciable

Preferred Solution: Popup window is going behind the IE window in IE8 Beta2 Vista Protected Mode ON

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.)

It isn't a big deal when and where its happening,its that I don't get why its happening when it didn't happen with my other computer (Windows XP) before now.

When I am at Pogo and decide I want to add a background or whatever to my cart and go to checkout a new window pops up that is blank except for the words "protectedmodeoff" in small black letters at top of page. I have read about how to turn the mode off and on and have tried that,nothing works when it comes to this site. Also,if there is anything I can post to show this computers innards please let me know. It is a refurb buy and I had to delete (or maybe I just think I did) alot of extras that were in it. If you can help me clean it up and have it running at top performance I'd appreciate it greatly!

Hi,I really hope that someone would help me with this problem.I'm running Windows Vista as OS. There are no virus or spyware on my computer - i'm 100% sure. Two things I made today before the problem appeared was to update Vista and to install the live-tv software called Zattoo.The problem is that I constantly get popup windows with the message: "Test".It's the "usual kind of Window popup windows" and not virus/spyware popup windows...Please someone HELP me, because it's getting frustrating (!!!) and I don't want to format the pc.Thanks!

A:Popup Window In Vista - Help!

Since Zattoo is of the P2P type of share software, it's probable you picked up 'something' in the down load.You may be 100% SURE you have no viruses, etc., but the popup says different.Please follow our basic instructions here and post anew.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

A friend is running Windows Vista Home Premium and when he boots his system, he gets a popup window that says:

"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'status.msi' in the below below:


Any idea on what this installer might be for? He recently had some issues with Standby mode not working after installing an McAfee Internet Security suite, so it might be related to that, but I'm not sure.

Hello Vista Smart Community,
I have a problem with a stupid malware virus on my Window Vista laptop (x32). This is the typical malware virus (system tools) that pops multiple windows telling me that my PC is infected with viruses and then is asking me to pay them (ransom scam). In the past I was able to fix the issue by going to safe mode and then fixing the proxy on my IE and then downloading legitimates virus killer. This time, is a little harder for me to kill this virus. This time the virus is not allowing me to open IE at all in safe mode and is using ?Window Vista security center? as the name versus the other know names. Can someone please help me figure out how to kill this Malware when I cannot access IE?

thanks a million for the help.

A:Installing Window Xp On Window Vista

Well, first we'll need to know the size of the C: and the D: drives, their names (such as Recovery or Restore) and how full they are.
Next, you'll need to ensure that you've got the DVD's necessary to reinstall Vista should you ever decide to go back to it (this'll save you a boatload of money).
Then, you'll need to have a copy of XP - you'll need a full, retail version to be fully able to install this (unless you've got an old copy of Win98, ME, or 2000 laying around to use with an upgrade. You'll also need copies of all the programs that you want to install.
You can get the drivers for your system at the Dell support site by entering your service tag number - but I don't know if that'll show XP drivers or not - maybe you can ask Dell support (via email) where the XP drivers are for your syste..

Then it's just a matter of inserting the XP disk, formatting your hard drive, and then starting the clean installation of XP. After that you'll spend a lot of time updating drivers and Windows Updates, then installing and updating your programs. Don't forget a good antivirus, antispyware, and firewall program (at a minimum) for your protection while online.

hi i'm new to the forum just need a few help with things,
I had this problem for a while now and i am getting physically sick of changing back to the original theme then having to switch it off and then it would be switched back to the old classic theme which you and me know looks a bit old and bland i hope there are some computer technicians on because i haven't found anyone who could fix this problem yet.

I thought it would of been third party applications may be disallowing the change(s) from "sticking" so i got rid of McAfee and spy bot temporary just to taste it out but nothing happen.

system restore is out of the picture too because its been awhile I've been couping with this now and didn't really think it was a big deal until now

I have the window vista home premium please can anyone help i will be so grateful.

At a guess, I'd say that the UAC prompt appears near where you double-clicked the icon to start the relevant program. If you launched it from the <WINKEY>+<R> Run dialog, then UAC will appear near the bottom left of the screen.

So I have several programs - Google AdWords, QuickBooks, Excel 2007, etc... - that utilize popup windows to perform extra work. It could be posting to the Internet or performing a search/replace...you get the idea.

The problem is that these windows grow increasingly taller every time they open up. They soon become so large that the top and bottom cut off of the screen. This never happened in these programs in any prior OS so this must be a Windows 7 bug.

Does anybody know how to correct this issue?!?

A:Popup Window Issue

I don't know if this will solve the problem or not, but perhaps try setting those apps to run in compatibility mode for Vista or a prior OS. To do this, right click on the .exe for each app in question, select properties, compatibility tab, and click "run this app in compatibility mode" and try selecting different OS modes and seeing if any of them solve the problem. I would start with Vista and work backwards to older versions.

Hi. I have a virus/malware problem and couldn't solve where it comes up. Two weeks ago an pop-up comes up and said my computer is not protected and needs to install Window 7 antivirus suite. It modifies the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/.exe of my registry and insert a C:\Users\YYY\AppData\Local\fga.exe into the default class. Since then I removed the program. Ran the Microsoft Security essential and removed bunch of virus. I also did a system restore since my registry was so mess up after removing the line in the .exe that nothing would come up. Today the virus pop up again. I had to redo another system restore after removing this time a C:\Users\YYY\AppData\Local\hul.exe file and the registry. I downloaded and ran hijackit and dds.com. Can someone help me to pinpoint on what to remove from the system? Thanks.

A:Help - Window 7 Antivirus popup

Read other 7 answers

I am operating with Windows XP and have been getting a Popup Window entitled: "nmctxth.exe - Unable To Locate Component" It further says:
"This application has failed to start because NETSH.EXE was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

I believe this message started after getting a Cisco wireless router and the software "Network Magic." I did download a newer version of it, and also updated my CA Anti-Spyware program which the people at Cisco seem to think it is coming from. However, the message is still there, plastered across the screen every day, and I am pulling my hair out trying to find a fix that will delete it.

Can anybody provide any info on how to delete this annoying Popup?

A:nmctxth.exe Popup Window

I have a problem with a Popup Window that is entitled "nmctxth.exe - Unable to Locate Component". The rest of the note says: "This application has failed to start because NETSH.EXE was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."

I am running Windows XP, and this message started appearing after installing a Cisco Router and the software "Network Magic". In trying to get help from Cisco, they seem to point to CA Anti-Virus Program I have as being part (?) of the problem. So, I donloaded a newer version of "Network Magic" and also the latest version of CA Anti-Virus. But I still have this *&^%#L( popup message plastered across my screen.

Can anybody suggest help in getting rid of this annoying Popup?

I managed to open a can of worms on my computer and I think I've managed to clean most of it with the help of your forums (as well as various others) but there is a pesky Dialup window that will continually pop up during web surfing on Firefox and will just occasionally pop up anyways.

I've included a Hijack log and hopefully something will show up on that:

For the dialup popup, Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections

Make sure "Never dial a connection" is ticked. Let me know how that goes.

I need more information before continuing, please.

For now, I'd like a more comprehensive set of logs from Deckard's System Scanner.

This happens occasionally to me with smaller pop-up windows. I have one on the screen right now. It is an HP Update window, asking me if I would like to update now. I can not see the button to click on the bottom. Sometimes I can just barely make out a slightly darker line in the center of bottom line and it will react when I put my pointer there, but not this time.

I did some research and it said I needed MS. Net Framework 3.5 SP1. I had that. It also said I need the MS Net Framework Assistant. I downloaded it but don't find it listed in my programs in Control Panel.

Also, when this happened last week, I did go to HP in Programs and ran the update file. One update was successful and one was not when the HP Installer Plug-In stopped working.

Any ideas?

I read about another person that had this same type of issue, but I can use some help with this whole process. First off, I am using Vista Business edition. I got some sort of virus on Facebook when asked to download a file to be able to view a friend's video. Stupid me for clicking the link. Anyways, after that, I get a IE popup that comes up every few minutes from various websites.

I had Avast Pro, not sure exact version. It was out of date so I uninstalled it and tried to download the Free AVG version. Downloaded it and it found nothing, but the virus definitions weren't up to date. Tried to update and I was getting an error message with something to the effect that the file couldn't be found. I then tried to update my Spybot, same thing. This message says Error retrieving update info file!

Another part of the problem is when I try to go to certain websites, I get redirected elsewhere. Here's an example. I google search antivirus. I click on the link that shows me it will route me to www.pctools.com, third option down from the top. When I click the link, it redirects me to : hxxp://www.findstuff.com/home/search/?uvx=...GnO0vhY2W5lAA** This happens with most sites I try to search.

Ok, so I hope this is enough detail, anything else you need to know, let me know. The other person that had this issue had pasted something from a Hijackthis log, which I would like assistance on obtaining myself so I can show you what's going on.

Hi All,

Actually its not happening to me but I'm actually assigned to me I can't replicate it

Kindly try this site http://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folder...p430f5510.html

The problem is when he visit a particular page, It open up 2 extra window only containing an image of the company header logo. The 2 windows indicate this link
http://focus.ti.com/en/graphics/head...ti_logo.gif#90 and http://focus.ti.com/en/graphics/head...i_logo.gif#569.

Here are some of some of the steps
- reset Internet options at Security ('Internet' and 'Local intranet' ) and Advanced tab
- reset the IE by using the MS Fix It-Tool <MicrosoftFixit50195.msi>
- installation of nearly all available Microsoft and Windows Updates by using the 'Windows Update' function
- checking and correcting of some Network and Windows settings
- using another Windows profile onto several PCs and Laptops
- etc.
Hopefully I may have a clue whhy it does this. It works for him in firefox but IE7 seems to make the problem though my IE7 does not do this.

A:IE7 POPUP new window image only

Please help what could be the possible causes of these.

Thanks any help will be greatly appreciated

Well today I was looking for "skins" for my Counter-Strike: Source game. Came upon this site from Google, clicked on it and was taken to the page. Looked like a pretty alright site. Navigated the page for a bit and found a nice skin. Proceeded to download it and then I get a bunch of popups from McAfee saying that it blocked Trojans. I can remember one entitled "Zlob" and one entitled "General". There was one other but I forget what it was called. Then the icon in the taskbar showed up. And every 10 minutes or so it flashes a message saying that it is infected and I need to download software. I have had this exact same problem in the past on this computer, and it was fixed by the SmitFraudFix. That is why I need your help. Don't know what to do next.Have one question and is that, is this thing just an annoyance or does it work as a keylogger too :X.The following is the logs:Deckard's System Scanner v20071014.68Run by Chris on 2008-07-11 19:49:26Computer is in Normal Mode.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- System Restore --------------------------------------------------------------Successfully created a Deckard's System Scanner Restore Point.-- Last 2 Restore Point(s) --2: 2008-07-12 02:49:31 UTC - RP2 - Deckard's System Scanner Restore Point1: 2008-07-12 02:38:01 UTC - RP1 - System CheckpointBacked up registry hives.Performed disk cleanup.-- HijackThis (run as Chris.exe) ---------------------------...

When the IE finishes loading a window this pops up automatically. Happens on a random basis. How can this be permanently disabled?
A friend of mine even complains that WinXP does it with tasks, but I couldn't confirm this.

I think it might be spyware. Get Adaware and scan your drive for stuff like Save and Gator, etc.

My son's laptop has started displaying a popup dialog box when he starts the system up. the error message is below

"windows cannot find loader.exe make sure you typed the name correctly then try again to search for a file click the start button and then click search"

This dialog box obviously has an OK button and normal window close,zoom,minimize etc. This normally happens just prior to live messenger (i think that's the version he's running) starts.

I've run as-aware 2007 against the system and installed AVG and ZoneAlarm. I've checked various sites which seem to think this could be a malware problem? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Additionally I was wondering whether this could adversely effect wireless connectivity or could I be barking up the wrong tree and looking at a separate issue?

Thanks in advance and apologies if I'm wasting your time, but I'm at a loss as to what it may be.


A:Popup Window For Loader.exe

Just as an update. I'm working through (albeit slowly) the Hijack This file I posted yesterday and have come across the entry

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [tsnp2std] C:\WINDOWS\tsnp2std.exe

doing a wider search on this seems to indicate that this is some form of malware.

there is also

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [C:\WINDOWS\system32\V0260Ext.ax] C:\WINDOWS\system32\RegSvr32.exe /s C:\WINDOWS\system32\V0260Ext.ax

about which I can't find any information (in english) but it does worry me that something is running regsvr

if anyone can please advise on the above I'd appreciate it. I will also continue to work through the rest of the file.

Thanks again in advance

Whenever I surf through Amazon or other sites, sometimes almost at random. A window pops up saying that the site is trying to install something called res:ieframe.dll from a trusted website. No matter what I do this popup keeps appearing and takes three clicks for it to disappear only to reappear in the next page. Oddly enough it doesn't appear when I use Firefox. I've updated my Adobe Reader, Flash, and Shockwave. I've updated my virus and malware scanners and nothing appears after a full scan.

Guys, and girls,

I need help. ASAP.
Recently I have noticed this annoying "Work Offline" popup window appearing each half an hour on my display.
First time it happend was few months ago, when I have installed something, I don't know what. I could not solve it, so I reinstalled the whole operating system.
Few weeks after, when I installed the Corel X4 (cracked) it appeared again. And again I could not solve it, but reinstalled the operating system.
NOW IT CAME AGAIN! I installed "gBurner" software.
I know it happens because of the software that carries some malicious scripts. Those scripts attach to explorer.exe, since through Task manager, I noticed the process that runs "Work offline" was explorer.exe.
I do not have internet connection on the computer that has this problem. And I suspect that if I had it, this Work Offline would link me somewhere from where I can only pick spyware and bugs.

Please help...

my mail is: [email protected]
