W2k Explorer security settings?

Q: W2k Explorer security settings?

When I have Win2k logged in as Restricted user some programs don't remember the last directory used in a program, either while it is still open or after it has been closed then opened.
Just wondering if there is any security properties that do this sort of thing with explorer? If so where can I find them?

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.)

Hi,A friend of mine is running Win XP and IE6.I have designed a web site for him which I have emailed to him for proof readings.Javascript has been used to disguise email addresses and an excel spread sheet is included as a download from a link.When trying to run the draft website from his machine in IE6 the script doesn't run but there is no security bar at the top of the browser window where you would normally expect to "click" to be able to select the option to allow it to. In his "Internet" and "Intranet" security settings "Active Scripting" is enabled.When he clicks on the link to download the excel file he gets a message which says something to the effect that "Security Settings will not allow download of this file".However, for a similar web site which I have designed and is published, which uses javascript for the menus, the menus appear as intended so clearly the script is executing. Further, on this site a word doc downloads with no problem.I have to confess I am stumped. Anyone have any ideas?ThanksDerek

I have just upgraded from IE6 to IE7 on PC with XP and SP2.
Everything works fine, except I always get the message that my security settings are at risk!
When I click on "fix it for me", the settings are not stored.
When I try to set the security settings to the default settiings then click OK, again the settings
are not stored.
This is very irritating and will cause me to go back to IE6, which is a bit annoying when my laptop uses IE7.
Can anyone help me to store my security settings, it seems so easy when you read the Help info!

I've been having a problem for a while that has been quite annoying to me. I think it relates to XP service pack 2, but I'm not sure:

In Internet Explorer, under Tools>Internet Options>Security, there are two problems.
The first is that the security settings slider for internet refuses to change to anything below medium. It gives the error:
"The Recommended security level for this zone is 'Medium'. The level you have chosen is lower than this. Please choose a security level of of 'Medium' or higher."
This sounds like a security pack issue, as I noticed the problem right after installing it. But it still bothers me to not have the ability to override the default.

The second problem on the same window is the lack of a "Custom Level" button. The button is there, but grey and unclickable. This is relatively recent and corrosponds to my recent virus infection which I just got rid of.
This problem is much more aggrovating as it doesn't seem to be any type of spyware or virus, and it restricts browsing in many ways.

I have run McAfee and found no current viruses/worms/trojans. I also have run both of the latest editions/updates of SpyBot and Adaware.

Somehow these problems seem easy to fix, but, of course, I've been unable to find any solution. Any help would definitely be appreciated.

I've been having problems off and on with my internet security lately. I can't download anything unless I set it lower than the default which isn't recommended by IE.

Anyway I decided to download Firefox today and I'm able to download but this one particular site won't let me upload anything because of my security settings:

I downloaded Firefox thinking it would solve this problem but it didn't. I turned off TrendMicro but nothing seems to work. At one point it would work in IE but I had to go another User Account. I don't plan on using IE so if anyone can assist me on how it can be fixed within Firefox I'd appreciate it.

I am trying to package a custom installation for Internet Explorer 10 using IEAK.  I am having some trouble with the Import Security Settings portion of the tool.
It is failing to import the security settings.  It says it has imported them, but upon installation the security settings have not been included in the IE 10 installation. 
Looking at the "INS" folder that is built and the custsec.inf file create there, I can see that only two security settings have been captured -- "1401" and "2500" and none of the other 50 or so security settings are collected
for any zone.
In addition, I have trusted sites set to not require HTTPS, but that selection is not captured into the custom IEAK generated browser installer.
Does anyone have any tips on how to successfully deploy a customized version of IE 10?  I am even more reliant now on IEAK since IEM mode was removed from Group Policy, so I reall need to figure out why it doesn't function correctly.

A:Internet Explorer 10 IEAK capturing Security Settings

More...
When ActiveSetup is run on a 64bit OS, first all the 32bit ActiveSetup keys are run first, and the 64bit ActiveSetup keys are run second.

The problem is that IEAK is adding the CUSTOM ActiveSetup to the 32bit key, and the ie4uinit.exe is added to the 64bit key.  While the IEAK has an ">" listed in the GUID (to signal for it to run last) it runs "last" in the 32bit
ActiveSetup commands.  The 64bit ones (which the ie4uinit.exe is part of) all run after the 32bit stuff....
So it appears that IEAK is not designed to build an IE 10 installation that will run correctly on 64bit OSes.  The IEAK CUSTOM settings will always apply prior to the ie4uinit running.  I suppose this can be changed by further manipulating the
registry after IEAK customized IE 10 is installed and making sure the >{GUID} entry is moved to the 64bit registry.
I suppose another way to look at it is ie4uinit is not correctly noticing that that the user settings are already present in the user's registry and is wallpapering over them with the incorrect settings.  Either way, the end result is that the incorrect
settings are being configured for the user on first logon.

I find it difficult to believe that Microsoft IE team has messed this up and that no one has discovered it before.  (I'm not being sarcastic) That makes me question what I am doing that is incorrect because I can't  believe that a problem like
that would exist in a ... Read more

I hope someone can help me work this out, it's driving me crazy!
I'll try to explain it in as few words as possible!
There is a website we need to access on which we're having trouble getting some of the buttons to display.  In short it works when the internet zone is set to "Medium" but not when it's "Medium-High" (I have added it to trusted sites
but in properties it shows as "Unknown Zone (Mixed)" so seems to use the "Internet Zone" settings.)
I am trying to track down which security setting is causing the issue.  To do this my plan was to make a note of all the settings that differ between Medium and Medium-High.  However if I set it to medium-high and manually change all the settings
to be identical to medium it still doesn't work... yet if I use the "Reset to: Medium" option at the bottom it does work!  This doesn't make any sense to me.
Are there other hidden stetting affected by the "Reset to" option that I can't change manually.
Any help would really be appreciated!  Thanks!

I have a drive that had Vista Home Premium on it & NTFS as the file system. The drive went bad with over 100 K bad sectors. Preformed a hard drive recovery; After several days I managed to remap all the bad sectors so that I could read the drive when booting from a XP boot CD or a UBCD cd.

Now When I view the drives directory structure I can browse most of what is listed except for the Documents & Settings folder. When I try that one I get the message "Access Denied". I tried getting into the properties to see if I can change the properties but the Security tab did not show up.

I am a lot more familiar with XP than Vista. Is there an added security feature Vista has on the Documents & Setting folder that only Vista can open it. I tried using a Vista Recovery disk but it was not able to see the partition. Also I am not sure if there are any tools on the disk to recover files from a drive that no longer boots windows.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You usually get infected because your security settings are too low.

Here are a number of recommendations that will help tighten them, and which will contribute to making you a less likely victim:

1) Watch what you download!
Many freeware programs, and P2P programs like Grokster, Imesh, Kazaa and others are amongst the most notorious, come with an enormous amount of bundled spyware that will eat system resources, slow down your system, clash with other installed software, or just plain crash your browser or even Windows itself.

I have found a temporarly looparound by moving a Firefox copy onto this PC from my Labtop via flash drive, but its far from a fix. Still can't download anything, but I can see images and watch some youtube videos.

But theres another error as well when i try to download off of firefox:

I have tried changing my Internet Security settings, but they don't solve anything and they actually reset themselves back to the defualt (Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded) after about 5-10 minuites.

Pretty confident it's a windows issue and not a Networking issue as everyone else can connect fine, and iits also causing issues like "File is corrupt" whenever trying to open files, and is breaking both Firefox and IE, But if mods think this thread is more appropiate somewhere else, Be my guest to move it where it would get awnsered better.

Tried so far:
Reinstalling windows (Yes i moved my games/files to flash drive(s) and formatted my disk when installing)

Hi and welcome to TSG,

You do not need to lower your security settings lower than medium to get Microsoft updates. It sounds like you're not allowing the ActiveX control. Check those settings.

Reset your ActiveX security settings like so... Go to Internet Options > Security > Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."
In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

I was wondering if anyone here could help me out. Here is my situation.

We have a computer that we have in our lobby for guests to be able to use. We have 2 logins set up. One for us as the admin (with password) & a second as guest (with password) for our guests.

We want to change the settings so that they cannot download files to the computer. We have set up these paramaters in IE options, but for some reason they keep getting changed.

Question #1 : Is there a way to password protect IE so that they cannot change any of the settings, i.e. active control, downloads, etc.?

Question #2 : Also, we would like to put a time limit as to when the computer logs off due to inactivity & would require the guest to sign back in. How can we do this & does this also work lets say if they do not close out any programs or browsers. Will the computer still log off?

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

btw, the computers are running VISTA if this helps any.

When I connect to the internet, Internet Explorer loses all it's security settings and I cannot go to any sites. When I go to the security tab, everything is grayed out. The only way I found to fix it is to run the internet explorer repair. This has happened on all versions of Explorer.
Anyone know why and a fix?

Thanks!

Hello ... I am experiencing some problems with receiving an alert that my security settings are not permitting me to send HTML forms. It's not allowing me to use my search functions through Yahoo or Google.

I'm trying to figure out what caused this. I just downloaded the most recent updates for Ad-aware and Spybot, which I think could have adjusted my security settings.

I was hoping to get some advice before I blindly began changing my Internet options.

Thanks

Installed Zone alarm and am trying the "pro version". I'm having problems on certain pages. Some won't show graphics although they load quickly, some show X's where pictures should be and with download manager a picture will go to my Kodak software, and on ebay, we get the page but can't bid.
Any ideas?

A friend of mine has been hit by a virus via Outlook Express (I don`t know which one) and her computer is now very unwell and not working. I have been getting warnings in Outlook Express myself and would I like to save this e-mail to disc etc. I have done a little research for security and found this extract. "Set the Restricted Sites security zone to disable all ActiveX and Java. Do this from Internet Explorer by selecting the following menu items.
Tools-Internet Options-Security-Restricted Sites-Custom Level "(I`m o.k. so far with this) Then it says, "Note: Just setting the restrictions to high will not work. You must choose Custom Level and scroll through the list disabling all options for scripting of Java and ActiveX. If you are unable to follow this step, it may be a good idea to ask an experienced friend for assistance."
Yes please, I would like some help! Could some kind person please run down the list and tell me which circle should have the "tick" in it. Many thanks for this and any other advise on the subject will be read and hopfully understood!......Penelope

hi Penelope,

"Tools-Internet Options-Security-Restricted Sites-Custom Level "(I`m o.k. so far with this) Then it says, "Note: Just setting the restrictions to high will not work. You must choose Custom Level and scroll through the list disabling all options for scripting of Java and ActiveX."

Ok you are now just needing to from the top of the window find the "Active X" section and in each of the 5 entries listed place a dot in each one of the top circles marked "Disable"
then scroll down past the cookies section etc. until you see the "Scripting" section and there you will see 3 listings relative to Scripting place a dot in each one of the top circles marked "Disable"
Hit the "OK" button at the botton to back yourself out of the area of the Internet Options.

All done Let us know if you need additional help....good luck.

In IE6 under the tools menu you select internet options, then you select the security tab and then you change all of the web content zones to "low" so that no sites are restricted, the very next time you go into these options they are set right back to "high" and "medium". Why won't these settings remain set where you have set them?
 

A:IE6 security settings

Are you clicking the apply button on the bottom of the screen ?
