Digital Signature.

Q: Digital Signature.

How can we obtain digital signature for the existing application ? Is it neccessary for running it on Windows Vista? What is SignTool and where can I find it?

Preferred Solution: Digital Signature.

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.)

A: Digital Signature.

You'd have to ask the company who developed the application. I haven't needed a digital signature in Vista in quite a long while. Also, I believe that they must be able to be applied to different OS's - or the signature would be worthless.

Does anyone know where I can find a digitally signed "ATI Integrated Digital Audio" driver for Vista x64 Business. The installed driver works, but only if I F8 at boot to disable signature enforcement, which is a pain whenever the system autoboots after an update. I have been living with the F8 approach since Vista was first released.

There is no information on the ATI (AMD) or HP support sites.

Driver details are as follows:

Driver Provider: ATI Technologies
Driver Date: 9/13/2006
Driver Version: 6.1.4242.1

The specific unsigned files are:
... atiwdma.sys
... LVUSBS64.sys

It is for an HP DV5000 x64

Thanks ...

Digital signature - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In simple terms, its like an ID card. It won't affect the program its just that Windows will warn that the ID for the program is no longer valid. Whether you trust the program or not is up to you.

I posted once before months ago, but didn't get any replies.

We have to use PKI/digital sigs for one of our main clients. We send attachments and emails encrypted because they include patient name, partial social security numbers and health information about the patient.

My PKI works fine, I have been having employees get them and they work fine. My boss has trouble with his. I can send and receive from him. He is using Outlook 2003. When he gets a certificate from a client and adds it to his outlook contacts, it shows up as being his certificate and not their certificate.

We have worked and worked on this and can't figure it out. We are in seperate offices, but I am going to try to get to his office this weekend to see if I can figure it out. We got the certificates from Versign and they don't provide any support. We have read all the help pages, emailed and not gotten any help back from them.

Any ideas on what could be wrong. I am running out of things to check.

Thanks.

Do you have to have the digital signature of your recipient to be able to successfully send them an encrypted message? Or, do you have to have that recipient saved in your 'contacts' list?

I have read the section on encryption and digital signatures in the 'Step by Step' book and it doesn't mention either of these needs. But, I have had several people tell me that I need both in order for them to open an encrypted message. I'm so confused now that I'm ready to go back to snail mail and interoffice envelopes!

Hello,
I have signed up to broadband via BTinternet and I have to download their security stuff. However when I try to run this programme a window pops up saying- Internet explorer security warning, windows has found a problem with this file- Name (blank)- Publisher unknown publisher- file was blocked does not have a valid digital signature.
The only option is to click the ok button and that is it, no option to over ride. I then noticed that this happens with every file that I download including trying to upgrade graphics drivers from Nvidia site which is pretty annoying as they are out of date. So far under advice from Bt and the computer manufacturer I have wound back windows, turned off every security setting, run as administrator, removed the antivirus software and even done a complete vista re install. I cannot believe that this is a unique problem but the previous mentioned tech support teams are baffled. Please help

A:conhost.exe digital signature

Hi,
 
Based on my knowledge, conhost.exe is the new host process for console windows. Previously those were handled by csrss.exe which is the ?Client Server Runtime Process?, a process running with system-level privileges. The conhost.exe process sitting in
the middle between CSRSS and cmd.exe allows Windows 7 to fix both of the problems in previous versions of Windows?not only do the scrollbars draw correctly, but you can actually drag and drop a file from Explorer straight into the command prompt.
 
I would suggest you to see the following link for more information.

While downloading the latest version of my ISP's software yesterday, the installer stopped the installation after the download and declared that it was unable to verify the integrity of the file (17.4MB) that it had just downloaded.

Looking at the properties of the file, indeed, its cetificate stated its Digital Signature Invalid.

Viewing the certificate details, a Copy to File button exists which when pressed invokes a Certificate Manager Export Wizard.

My understanding of "Digital Signature Invalid" is minimal at best, but I suspect that the download file was changed after it had been signed which would explain the problem.

I run a Win98.SE platform with 512MB RAM and 40GB disk - so, system resources are plentiful.

Does the ISP need to re-sign the download file to correct the problem?

Does my platform need a new Root Cerrtificate for the ISP installed to correct the problem?

Or, do I need to export the "invalid digital certificate" via the Certificate Manager Export Wizard to proceed with the installation?

I have already contacted the ISP with these details, and since they are already sending me a second CD-ROM of their new software, they claim that should fix the problem.

While I am willing to wait to see if that corrects the problem, I would like to know your thoughts about the digital signature problem and its correction that I have explained to the best of my knowledge above.

Thanks in Advance,

-- Tom

2. I am creating a web-based form that used to be a pdf that applicants printed off and mailed in. Problem is they used to sign the application and mail it in. I know that there are digital signatures, but anyone that has tips and experience with something like this I'd love to hear how you managed to overcome this problem. Did you use digital signature technology or go with an alternative method?

A:pdf in window and digital signature

Hi.

AFAIK the plugin for the pdf is still buggy in IE6.0. I'd be interested to hear otherwise. I've advise my clients NOT to update at this time.

As for the digital signatures.....I have one called on-sign that I use in conjunction with my PDA. However, to use it with Acrobat I need to do some fancy cut & paste from another app.

The problem with digital signatures is I'm not sure how they stand-up in court. For legal type stuff I still use the old pen & ink method. But for correspondence I don't have any problem plugging in my digital. I think you will have to check the laws in your area about such things.

I hope someone can help me - or refer me somewhere for the problem I'm having this weekend. My problem is w/QuickBooks Pro 2006 version. QB Technical support isn't available until Monday morning, and I need help now. (My problem started on Friday A.M.)

I have a Compaq Presario 6350 computer, XP sp2, I use AVG and Ad-Aware. I have lots of memory and I'm still on dial up.

Here's my story: I was having problems w/other issues on my computer a few days ago. A friend of mine (he's a professional tech) determined I needed to do a reinstall and data restore. He did back everything up to disk.

I thought everything was working perfectly and he'd really helped me out, BUT - when I tried to do payroll in QB, a message popped up saying I had to do payroll update first. It appeared to be working fine, but it was taking forever, so I knew something was wrong. Then, I got the dreaded message -- Error 15222. "The payroll update did not complete successfully. QuickBooks could not verify the digital signature within the update file."

Can someone tell me where to go in my computer - so I can get the setting back like it was. I didn't have the problem before, so I feel like a setting has been changed. Or - my friend maybe did not re-install a needed file. If I knew which file is needed, I could access it from the backup disk he made for me.

I had some problems with my video care, an ATI All In Wonder Radeon, so ATI told me to do a few things, which now has screwed up my display drivers. I have tried to re-install the video card, but I get the Digital Signature Notification error. It says that the driver may not have been tested by Microsoft, and wont be installed. I have tried to change the settings to warn, but it wont let me click the advanced tab, it has been greyed out. I have tried to download the drivers from the ATI web site, but they wont install properly. Is there any way to change the warn vs block settings in Windows ME?? thanks in advance kirk
 

A:Digital signature problems

Just a though

Are you logged on with username and password rather than guest or default.

Have you tried windows updated, it may offer you a video driver to temporarily correct the problem

Had trouble like that along time ago, ended up using windows update at first, finally got the advanced to warn rather than block.

When I try to create digital signatures in Adobe "the create new digital ID is greyed out" How do I change the permissions for this setting? Thanks

Is it a document you created, or is it a document someone sent you? If the document is set to read-only, digital signature creation may be disabled.

I hope someone can help me - or refer me somewhere for the problem I'm having this weekend. My problem is w/QuickBooks Pro 2006 version. QB Technical support isn't available until Monday morning, and I need help now.

I have a Compaq Presario 6350 computer, XP sp2, I use AVG and Ad-Aware. I have lots of memory and I'm still on dial up.

Here's my story: I was having problems w/other issues on my computer a few days ago. A friend of mine determined I needed to do a reinstall and data restore. He did back everything up to disk.

I thought everything was working perfectly and he'd really helped me out, BUT - when I tried to do payroll in QB, a message popped up saying I had to do payroll update first. It appeared to be working fine, but it was taking forever, so I knew something was wrong. Then, I got the dreaded message -- Error 15222. "The payroll update did not complete successfully. QuickBooks could not verify the digital signature within the update file."

I called my friend and he told me to insert the Backup of "important data" and look for the file I need. However, I have no idea which file I need. I did go to QB support website and followed the instructions as listed. I went to "add & remove" and followed the prompts and did a repair through there. The message stated my repair was successful. I did a reboot and thought I would be able to successfully update my payroll. But - still no luck.

Hi Guys

Have tried this post on " am I infected" forum without reply. Probably wrong forum anyway. I have Vista OS with AVG 2011 free. When I scan it comes up with 7 files with the narrative " this file has a broken digital signature issued by the Microsoft corporation" I have no idea what that means, can anyone enlighten me?

regards
Cluey

A:Broken digital signature

Although I'm not familiar with this particular AVG 2011 message, the meaning is quite obvious to me.

AVG 2011 has checked the digital signature (Authenticode) of Microsoft executables, and found 7 executables produced and signed by Microsoft, that have an invalid signature.
The most common reason for an invalid signature is that the executable has been modified after it was signed.

Does AVG tell you which executables have a "broken digital signature"? Can you share this with us?
Because one possible explanation for a modified executable, is that you have a malware infection.

In this blogpost, I explain how to check digital signatures: http://blog.didierstevens.com/2008/01/11/the-case-of-the-missing-digital-signatures-tab/

Hello!
Can you tell me what is "Programs digital signature"? According to my knowledge some security software categorize programs trustworthiness using program digital signature.
How do program developer get digital signature?
Why some programs not have digital signature?

A:What is Program Digital Signature?

To #1 I'll clip you what Microsoft has to say about that:





Quote:
A digital signature is an electronic security mark that can be added to files. It allows you to verify the publisher of a file and helps verify that the file has not changed since it was digitally signed.
If the file doesn't have a valid digital signature, there's no way for you to be sure that the file is actually from the source it claims to be from, or that it has not been tampered with (possibly by a virus) since it was published. It's safer to avoid opening the file unless you know for certain who created it and whether the contents are safe to open.
Even a valid digital signature doesn't verify that the contents of the file are harmless. You must decide if you should trust the contents of the file based on the identity of the publisher and where you are downloading the file from.


What cracks me up about that statement: They basically say "Even if we digitally sign the file, you can't be sure if it's authentic" Doesn't that statement contradict the sense and purpose of the whole process ???

As for #2 as a dev you can submit your file to Microsoft to obtain said digital sign

As for #3 because it costs money and it takes time for your files to be processed. Sometimes the cost of the driver or program doesn't cover the licensing fees ...that together with Microsoft's statement, that even a signed file could be bogus might influence decisions not ha... Read more

I upgraded a desktop and laptop from Vista Ultimate to Win 7 RC and have the same problem on both. I can't install programs, run msconfig, cmd, regedit, etc, because I receive a digital signature error that is supposedly related to a recent hardware or software change. I can't even edit the properties of the accounts because of this same error.

Interestingly enough on my laptop one account shows a blank programs list when you go to start-all programs, but on the other account they show up. I restored the desktop from my windows home server and will shortly do the same on the laptop if I can't figure out this problem.

Any ideas?

Hello Awraynor,

It may be a issue from the upgrade. You might see if doing a clean install of Windows 7 may work better for you instead.

Hope this helps,

I recently installed another Windows to my computer.
It works and boot, but the older Windows can't boot and gives an error of

"\Windows\System32\winload.exe" cannot be trusted because of its digital signature.

It tells me to go to F8, but when I press F8, it goes back to error screen of winload.exe.

I tried start up repair options with both disks (I have two disks in the computer), but start up repair was just messing up the boot. After several times of repairs, I came back to the boot screen, can boot to the new.

Is there any way that I can solve this?

Thanks.

I noticed that Windows files under system32 such as svchost.exe, csrss.exe, cscript.exe etc do not have a signatures tab. Even C:\Windows\explorer.exe is an unsigned file (at least so when you look for Signatures tab in their properties). Kindly
provide information on why MS has chosen to hide signature tab for these components.  

It becomes difficult to implement a white-listed environment when core Windows components are unsigned. And how do I certain their integrity when we have been hit by a file infecting virus?  

If I check with sigverif, they come back as signed. Thanks to ElderN from MS forum for introducing sigverif.

Hello,

I am using a new surface (Christmas gift) and trying to install windows messenger and i receive the following "windows cannot verify the digital signature"

I tried looking for updates several times but comes back system is up to date.

any suggestions?

A:windows 8 cannot verify the digital signature

when you are speaking of windows messenger, can you be a little more clear? are you referring to live messenger? the default messenger (which should've already been installed)?

note that the Surface RT device runs Windows RT which is the operating system for ARM processors. It cannot run Windows 8 software which runs on x86/x64 processors. The software you can use with the Surface RT is any application that's available in the Windows Store and the ones already installed on the device like Microsoft Office 2013.

Since Windows RT cannot run x86/x64 software, you can't download Windows 8 software (or any older traditional Windows 7 or earlier software) through a web browser and install. You are restricted to Windows Store as well as some sideloading options.

I am aware that there are other threads for this topic, I have read them but I am still not sure what to do as my circumstances are a little different, and because of the circumstances I think It is more likely that the broken signatures were caused by some kind of virus in my case.

I was on the internet when AVG notified me that it had blocked two threats, so I closed out of the site, then proceeded to shut down my computer anyway to be cautious. I restarted my computer and started a scan just to be safe, and It found two broken digital signatures:

C:\Windows\Installer\25706.msi\ISSetupFile.SetupFile7

C:\Windows\Installer\25706.msi

I cannot seem to locate either of these on my computer, and what is even stranger is that when I pasted the second one into the navigation bar It attempted to initiate an installation of what it said was some sort of video program (didn't think to take down the exact name unfortunately). However almost immediately the first little window closed and another one came up saying that the installation didn't work.

You will have to bear with me as I am not 100% technically savvy (though i'm not utterly technologically illiterate), But something is definitely wrong and I would appreciate any help you can give.

Thanks.

A:AVG 2011 broken digital signature.....

That might be nothing but I would want a second opinion:
Load this and run a full scan:
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a free download that removes viruses and malware from your computer

Then I would get rid of AVG (too bloated, too many false positives) with this here:
AVG - Download tools

and replace it as you antivirus with either
avast! Free Antivirus - Download Software for Virus Protection
or
Download details: Microsoft Security Essentials

Hello, I'm new to this forum. Excuse me if this was posted before. I recently upgraded from Vista x32 to 7 x64. I'm getting the error stating, windows can't verify the digital signature for this file, winload.exe. status 0xc0000428. The computer will not boot unless I have the windows disk in the cd drive. THen, everything is ok. I tried just about everything that I found but, the same old thing. My question is, why does it boot to windows with the disk installed whereas the disk has the same files that were installed on my hard drive? I never had this issue with Vista. I even re installed win7 to see if that made a difference but it didn't. I tried bcdedit, bootrec, sfc /scannow, disable integrity checks, starting in safe mode, etc. If I keep the windows disk out, when booting, and after getting the error screen, it asks if I want to boot to Vista, which I don't even have. I deleted the windows.old folder. I have all the updates installed. Could this be a bug in windows 7 or is there something I'm missing. I'm willing to try anything. Thanks

Hello.
I am a software maker. For my program, I bought a digital signature and signed installation file. However, when users downloading my file, despite the presence of a digital signature, there is a SmartScreen warning that the file is suspicious.
The users must to manually confirm the start of the file.
I thought that the presence of a digital signature increases the credibility of the system and the file will run without smartscreen warning.
How can I increase the confidence of smartscreen filter to alert users do not ever arise?
