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.)

rdubayah,
If your computer was running WIndows 10 without any issues prior to downloading the Anniversary update, then you would not have had to change any settings in the bios to install the update.The UEFI and Secure Boot settings are to enable booting with a USB or DVD to install Windows.
Disable Legacy Boot Mode and Enable UEFI
Start the computer and TAP the F2 key to enter the bios. Once in the bios Press F9 to Restore the bios to the Default Settings. F10 to save changes and exit. You could have a hardware problem. To run a hardare diagnostics on the computer you would start the computer and TAP the F5 key. Insert a cd/dvd in the optical drive for running the diags.

I need to return a desktop computer. I just turned on bit locker and plan on also erasing the drive as well (after bitlocker is complete). It is an SSD.

Out of curiosity, once bitlocker is on, can anyone access the data if they do not know my log in information or recovery key?

A:Bitlocker to Secure Drive I have to return

In theory anyone sufficiently motivated could brute force crack the encryption, but it would likely take an extremely long time to the point of not being practical in the likely cost:benefit analysis. All encryption, assuming it can be decrypted, is subject to brute force cracking. There is also a well known, and intentional, back door built into Windows. It's usually not that big of a deal because it requires physical access to the computer, but it basically allows you to wipe out the password on an account in the event you forget it. I have absolutely no idea how that might interact with Bitlocker though.

Welcome to BC Mackem Oof, you have certainly described a mess. I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.I would add that it might be a good idea to stay disconnected from the internet as much as possible.Orange Blossom

Hello all,
I own an Asus laptop with pre-installed Windows 8.1 and, after downloading & installing recent Windows updates (20th of September 2014, if memory serves me correctly), I am unable to access desktop because system freezes at boot sequence returning me this error: "Secure Boot Violation. Invalid signature detected. Check Secure Boot Policy in Setup" printed inside a small red box.

After googling around, someone suggested to disable "Secure Boot" from BIOS and enable "Launch CSM". I performed such operations but I got no results (BIOS menu automatically appears after every reboot). Someone else suggested to change boot sequence and start system from a Recovery CD but I got no CD supplied with my laptop as Asus stopped providing CDs from very long time AFAIK.

I am quite sure problem relies on Windows Updates because I used this Laptop very little times and no p2p or hacked programs are installed. In addition to that, as far as I read, it seems other Win users experienced the same issue after installing WinUpdates but they have different BIOS so is not easy for me to understand my BIOS accordingly to what they do in their own BIOS in order to solve issue.

What annoys me most is that I bought this Laptop in July 2014 and, just three months later, it got freezes because of official Windows Updates and not because of bad behaviour of user.

Thank you all for reading.
I appreciate your help very much.

I had to buy a new (SSD) HD and had trouble booting from a disc until I enabled Legacy Mode and disabled Secure Boot in BIOS. Boot orders in both UEFI and Legacy are the same, with DVD Rom set to boot first. Also, the settings for IPV4 and IPV6 are set to IPV4 (Legacy) when they were once set to BOTH IPV4 AND 6 and are unable to be changed, if that's important. Now whenever I boot up I always get a "No Boot Device Found" message until I hit "Enter" at which point i'm allowed entry into my precious Win10 laptop.  I disabled Legacy in BIOS, but then i get a different "No Boot Device Found" error, and hitting "Enter" doesn't help. Could some kind person tell me how to correct this, and possibly why it happened and the differences in each option? I'll settle for how to correct this, though, with much gratitude.  MUCH gratitude. GN

Hi all,

Here is my current situation:

Got a new HP desktop (Windows 10 Pro) with RX 580 GPU. Disabled Secure Boot in BIOS since I wanted to avoid potential issues from flashing custom GPU bios, then flashed the custom BIOS (nothing fancy, just modified some timings which worked for me in the past with another RX 580).
After rebooting it will not post and it gives 3 short beeps and 3 long beeps, which according to HP signifies that "the embedded controller has timed out waiting for BIOS to return from graphics initialization."
I tried pulling the GPU and plugging into integrated graphics via HDMI but got the same result. It could be that the integrated graphics are disabled (the ports were covered) but I can't seem to get into BIOS to check.
I tried swapping in a different GPU (not 100% it's working since I have no other PC to test with currently, but I have no reason to believe it's dead). Same result.
Tried removing and re-inserting the CMOS battery, then booted up with no GPU, then with RX 580, and then with other GPU. Same result each time.
Any suggestions as to what I should try next? I'm pretty stumped...

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:

Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:


My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.


Any thoughts people?

Microsoft has been attempting to patch a serious Secure Boot vulnerability that can be exploited to bypass the security feature and install rootkits and bootkits on Windows devices. Researchers believe the security flaw cannot be fully patched.

-

On systems where Secure Boot is locked down and cannot be disabled (e.g. Windows RT, HoloLens, Windows Phone), configuration changes can be made using policies, signed files loaded by the boot manager (bootmgr) from a UEFI variable. There are some boot loader executables (EFI files) signed by Microsoft that can be used to provision such policies.

Before loading a policy, bootmgr checks it to make sure it?s valid. However, researchers discovered that Microsoft introduced a new type of Secure Boot policy during the development of Windows 10 Anniversary Update (v1607) that can be abused to bypass the security feature.

On my Toshiba QosmioX70-B Secure Boot is enabled in the UEFI/BIOS-Setup (F2). Windows 10 Pro, installed on HD, always boots fine.

When I booted OpenSuse Live KDE 13.2 from DVD for the first time on this notebook I was asked a question I cannot remember exactly. It must have been something like, if I want to bypass Secure Boot or not. I decided to bypass it.


Now everytime I boot from the above mentioned live DVD no question is raised and the boot process goes straight through.

On another computer (Dell desktop) I have never been asked such a question and everytime I want to boot from the live DVD I first have to disable Secure Boot in its UEFI/BIOS-Setup (F2).

What has happend to my Toshiba notebook? I doubt whether Secure Boot is still effective. How can I switch it on once again? Let's remember that the UEFI/BIOS-Setup (F2) still shows Secure Boot as enabled. I prefer to explicitely disable it everytime (as on the Dell System) I want to boot from the live DVD instead of having that doubt.

A:QosmioX70-B - does Secure Boot work properly?

It is still effective, but it sounds like Linux added its own Secure Boot Key to the BIOS, or replaced the Microsoft key.

I have read, on the Internet, that Bitlocker can be got into, without using the password, by 'experts using encryption breaking tools.

I use a 13 part password, incorporating upper case & lower case letters, numbers and special (punctuation?) symbols.

So, just how secure is Bitlocker?

A:How Secure Is Bitlocker?

There really isn't a better alternative. The only real alternative, TrueCrypt has been officially discontinued, and while they didn't come out and say it, it's likely that it's able to be broken by a sufficiently powerful cracking hardware.

If you're using a TPM chip, then its going to be secure against all but the most determined attackers. For instance, one method of attacking such a system is to freeze the RAM in liquid nitrogen, then use an electron Microscope to read the "state" of the RAM, and search it for the encryption keys in memory. There's also a technique that can use an active Firewire port to read memory (though most PC's don't have firewire ports, and most that do have them disabled by default).

In general, the XKCD rule applies: xkcd: Security

If you can get into the system, it's likely that anyone that is determined enough to crack your system will just torture you, use leverage against you, or some other tactic to simply get you to divulge your password.

I work for a bank and we have a few laptops set up for users. They mostly use these laptops when away from their office to remote into their workstations at work. They each have windows passwords set up on their laptops and I have also turned bitlocker on.

My main concern is if they misplace or someone steals the laptop I don't want a chance of them being able to get any info. I know if the thief tries taking the drive out and placing in another pc that the bitlocker recovery key will be requested, but what if they have a windows 7 install disk and they hit f12 in bios on the laptop with bitlocker on to boot from cd/dvd, from what I remember the recovery key is not requested when choosing another boot option. Would they be able to some how get the users profile documents/info from the hdd or would it wipe the drive like when doing a custom install?

A:How Secure is Bitlocker?

They will not be able to get anything without the encryption key. At this time brute forcing AES (which Bitlocker uses) is not viable. So any data encrypted with it is secure as long as the key remains secure.

I was trying to make a purchase at a web site today and as soon as I went to the secure area (green lock)I got a "cannot display page " error. I tried several other sites with the same error. This problem may have been here for a while. My last internet purchase was several months ago. I use a modified version of IE that Earthlink uses as default. I have SSL 2.0 selected in internet options.

Recently I have lost the ability to get into secure sites. Example: When ever I go to checkout to make a purchase, I get an error message saying.

Problem Report
There was a communication problem.

Message ID
TCP_ERROR

Problem Description
The system was unable to communicate with the server.

Possible Problem Cause
The Web server may be down.
The Web server may be too busy.
The Web server may be experiencing other problems, preventing it from responding to clients.
The communication path may be experiencing problems.

Possible Solution
Try connecting to this server later.

Also some sites that I used to login into won't let me back in.

Running ME (has worked great from day one)

I have tried different Browsers:

IE 6 with latest patch, checked all the security and privacy settings, and has toggled off and on many of the advanced settings.
I have checked my settings, SSL 2 and 3 are enabled and TLS1 is enabled.
I am using a program called AnologXProxy for my network and when I look at the LAN settings I am using local host 9877 for all the ports.
I really don't understand the LAN settings but I don't believe they have changed recently.

Hi All,

My son dropped a book on his Samsung Np355V5C at uni the other week and cracked his screen. So now he is home for easter I've changed the screen but he has killed the hard disk at the same time though I am able to recover his docs using easeus recovery program.

I have gone and got him a new 1TB western Digital Hard drive today and fitted it but had the following problems when i tried to install Windows 7 Pro

I read through your clean install guide and reset the BIOS to defaults but when i then change the boot proirty to cd i get a red label saying

Secure Boot Violation

Invalid Signature detected. Check secure Boot Policy in Setup

OK

After restoring to defaults the boot order looks like this
Boot option Priorty

Boot option 1 [Windows Boot Manager (P0: WDC WD10JPVX-22JC3T0)
Boot Option 2 [Windows Boot Manager (P0: WDC WD10JPVX-22JC3T0)
Boot Option 3 UEFI: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SN-208DN

I have a windows 7 pro disk which has worked previously so could use some help please.

I dont' understand what is going wrong

I've tried changing boot priority multiple times to have my CD/DVD drive boot first & the SSD second & 3rd disabled.

But it doesn't ever seem to save the settings and does NOT boot from the CD/DVD and instead goes directly to the SSD, either my Ubuntu or my Win7 SSD, whichever one I happen to have hooked up at the time.

Anyone know what the problem & solution is? This is getting very frustrating, I've been trying to do this for a couple weeks now and just no luck. I've tried multiple Secure Erase DVDs, one made through Samsung Magician & one made manually with an iso burner, both gave me same results regardless of SSD Ubuntu/Win7

Hi guys,

i recently bought a windows 10 tablet from Onda that came with full licenced windows 10 (didnt upgrade from anything) and i reset it as soon as id finished fiddling about with it and testing it so i could set it up fresh. it worked perfectly before resetting it and it connected to my wifi fine but after it wont find any internet connections and when i click the wifi icon in the corner it says connections unavailable.

ive tried the reg delete thing as it has vpn on it and i googled around trying to find a fix, one of which suggested if you upgrade from windows 8 that vpn breaks the wifi so this might be similar? however the command prompt didnt find the reg key/thing it was supposed to delete so that was a no go.

ive tried diagnosing connection problems and it resets the wifi adaptor but nothing improves, ive also tried updating the wifi driver but it says its already up to date and i cant connect to the internet on it to search for another adaptor. ive contacted Onda but theyve just offered to replace it if i send this back which im a bit wary of doing as they might just deny recieving the item and im out ?160 + whatever it costs to send to china tracked.

could anyone please help me?
this was what i tried:

Step-2: Execute the following command and then press Enter

reg delete HKCRCLSID{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f

HP Notebook 15-f009wm
OS: Windows 8.1 with Bing 32 bit

Hello all,

This is my problem:

I can't get my USB drive to load while in Secure Boot mode and continue running into 'Boot Device Not Found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk' screen. The only method that works thus far is disabling Secure Boot mode and enabling Legacy
Support. Here are the methods I have tried based on extensive research of various forums after several days:

- Performed all the generic System Diagnostic tests (F2) + Memtest86 + sfc /scannow multiple times after every fresh install + physically checked HDD. Performed all HP recommendations: http://support.hp(DOT)com/us-en/document/c01443463


- Did multiple fresh installs of Windows 8.1 with Bing (32 bit) erasing all partitions from hard drive every time (my system is designed for 64 but I only have access to a 32 ISO). Installed using Legacy Support (I understand you can't go back and enable Secure
Boot and disable Legacy once it has been installed this way but due to lack of any other way of installing Windows, I have no choice).

- Used 'Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool' to create ISO which automatically formats drive to NTFS; converted to FAT32 using 'AOEMI Partition Assistant' software (preserving all partitions/data) but it still won't read.

- Used 'Rufus v. 2.11.995' software to create ISO as FAT32 under several different setting iterations:

Hello all, This is my problem: My BIOS won't boot my USB drive while in Secure Boot mode (Legacy Support disabled). After researching this, I realized UEFI Secure Boot won't read NTFS formatted flash drives hence requiring user to reformat to FAT32. I've reformatted to FAT32 but it still won't boot. I continue to run into the 'Boot Device Not Found. Please install an operating system on your hard disk.' screen. The only way to get the USB drive to boot is to disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Support. Virtually every forum I have researched pointed to this being the problem (aside from loose hard drives / hard drive and/or memory problems). I have checked the hard drive and have ran the F2 System Diagnostics and am sure there is no problem with the HDD. I have even tested the RAM/CPU with Memtest86 with 0 errors. I have ran multiple 'sfc /scannow' tests after each fresh Windows install and there are no corrupt files during installation. I have been trying to install a fresh Windows 8.1 with Bing (32 bit) on a system that originally came with 64 (there were no 64 bit ISOs available anywhere to download and since Microsoft conveniently doesn't make this specific Windows version available for download via their Media Creation Tool (or anywhere else on their or their affiliate sites for that matter), I was forced to resort to a 3rd party site to obtain this download. The problem is I am forced to install using Legacy Support as there appears to be no o...

Hi all,

I have this problem which is very annoying. I cannot enter a secure site (my bank account, paying bills etc.)with my passwords using IE 7. I checked my security options in Internet Options and made sure my SSL and TSL were checked. Tried it again with no success.

Then I un-installed IE 7 using the '%windir%\Ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe' command line. I then re-installed IE7 from the Micro$oft website hoping to get a clean installation of IE 7. Finally, I ran all the updates and I still had the same problem.

At this point I'm thinking it could be a virus because I can access secured sites in FireFox (my bank account etc.)without any problems whatsoever. So I ran a complete scan using AVG. No success.

The reason I have to use IE 7 is because I am taking a tech course and the use of IE 7 is required to hand in my assignments. I can't do this using FireFox. My school suggested loading IE8 Beta LMAO.

I hope I don't have to do a clean install of XP Pro.

So, any help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I am trying to make an secure POP3 (port 995) and secure IMAP (port 993) connection thru Verizon FIOS via the ActionTec MI424WR modem/router/802.11G box that Verizon supplied. I am running Vista, and I am using Outlook 2007, which is set to these ports.

I wanted to do this with the firewall set to the "Maximum Security (High)" setting.

These ports were not available in the ActionTec's pick list so I added these ports (using the "Advanced" tab and then under "Protocols") so they read "TCP any -> 993" and "TCP any -> 995"

I tried adding these ports to the "Access Control" table, and the "Port Forwarding" table and the "Advanced Filtering" table but none worked.

The Verizon Tech Support line worker told me the only solution was to enable the DMZ host and set it to be the IP address of the computer I happened to be on.

To my astonisment, with DMZ enabled, the "Access Control" rules seemed to kick in for the DMZ host and my secure POP3 would only work if I had this port allowed in the "Access Control" table.

Questions:
1. Is it safe to run with DMZ pointing to my computer.

I thought this effectively brought the "DMZ host" (i.e. my computer) outsied the firewall and exposed all the ports on my computer directly to the internet. (But if that were the case, then

DMZ does indeed expose the computer directly to the outside world, that's why it's called the DMZ!

I have a laptop that I take to work, and would like to set things up to use my home internet connection from elsewhere. I don't have another computer to function as a server for me at home, so would like to do it so that my router alone provides this access (log into it from the internet anywhere and use my internet as if I am using it from home).

How would I go about doing this? Would it require installing new firmware, or how can I tell my router that I would like to access it like this?

I have a router with remote access capabilities as well as a bridging mode (and I have another older router).

Many thanks!
