Internet Security Settings?!?

Q: Internet Security Settings?!?

I have a WIN XP home SP2. When I try 2 change my internet security setting from medium to low, I get this error message: (attached image)

Does any1 know what could have cause this and how to solve it?


Preferred Solution: Internet Security Settings?!?

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 all, I'm a new member. My problem is there is this 'your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded' error every time I try to download any file from the web. And this is not solved by ajusting all my security settings to low, enabling activex etc. So what could be wrong. I'm not behind any firewall or anything either.

A:Internet Security Settings

So you went to Internet Options and tried lowering your settings under the Privacy tab. Did you go to the Security tab and choose Default Level at the bottom?

Hi, I cannot open certain internet links because the system says my security settings do not allow it. So I go to the Control Panel -Internet Options -Security screen and there is nothing there! I should see some icons for Internet/ Trusted Zones etc in the 1st box - there are none; it is blank. I should be able to select a security level but the apply button is greyed out. I can make no changes to whatever the computer has set itself as and I cannot open important study documents which are essential for my course.
Help please - what do I do?

A:Internet Options -Security settings - GONE!

I am running Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11. I am trying to find a listing of the recommended settings for the Security section under Internet Properties. I have found several listings for the Advanced section, but not Security.

Can anyone guide me to a listing like this or a website that gives specific details about what each setting does or controls so that I can adjust my system correctly. I find that using the Windows 7 factory settings slows the system down somewhat.

Thank you

A:Internet Security Settings in Windows 7

It sounds like you want to disable ActiveX content (flash) or you have an errant COM browser Addon.
or you have a long list of domains in your Trusted Sites zone.
Changing the default IE security zone settings is not recommended.
Legacy anti-spyware like Spybot S&d or the MVP hosts lists are no longer required and long Trusted Sites lists are known to slow performance.
SmartScreen Filter or your AV product include listings of known 'bad' domains.
You can find the latest listing here -
tools>activeX filtering to toggle site ActiveX filtering.
Internet Options>Advanced tab, uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions" (Close and restart IE for the full changes to take affect) to disable COM Toolbars and BHO's.
Check for updates to your AV program and run a scan to identify any malware that you may have installed.

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.

I am trying to figure out a way to have different settings (firewall filtering mode mostly) on different Windows 10 accounts. For example I have my main admin account where I've setup Eset on interactive mode so I can control inflow/outflow of connections etc. But I have also created a guest/visitor account with limited access for other users on my personal PC which I wish to set the filtering mode into automatic so they won't accidentally allow access to an unknown connection and end up messing my PC. How can I do that? I tried to use the profiles tab under firewall but it doesn't automatically change when I change accounts. Is there a way to do this?

For some reason, I am suddenly unable to access files on a DVD. I have a DVD I made, which is full of last year's photos. When I put it in my laptop drive and select the option to view files, it takes ages (green bar, crawling like snail, unwillingly across the top of the window where the path is listed) but eventually I see the top level folder, which is called Photos.

Double click on the Photos folder to look inside and there's another long wait (green bar spreading across again). When the green bar finally makes it across, I get the message:

These files can't be opened.
Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened.

What??? What has this got to do with internet settings. I'm not trying to access the internet. I'm just trying to look at my own photos on a DVD. The same DVD in another computer works absolutely fine.

A different DVD (also of my photos but created a couple of years back) works fine in my laptop. In other words, it's only one particular DVD and it only fails in this one computer.

Actually, while writing this I just spotted something. Looking at the top level listing I think my computer has decided that E:\Photos is a file, not a folder. Why? My ancient tower machine, running XP, makes no such mistake. Any suggestions?

A:Cannot access DVD because of, quote, Internet security settings.

can you try to see the files on the same computer but from another user account?

I'm running Windows 7 and use Microsoft Security Essentials for virus protection.  Two days ago, I rebooted my computer and noticed that the desktop background had changed to black, and the IE, Chrome, and WMP icons that were pinned to the taskbar had turned into blank document icons.  When I clicked on them, it said the target was not found.  I used the search box to find them and re-pin them to the taskbar, but internet access was very slow, and connections would sometimes time out.  I rebooted into safe mode, ran a full scan with MSE and it found and removed a few things; also ran Malwarebytes and it found and removed a few things.  Internet was still slow, however.  I ran Combofix, and this also found and removed a few things, and seemed to fix the slow internet problem in Chrome.  However, IE is still slow. Also, something keeps changing my internet security zone, under Internet Options, to Custom.  I change it to Default (Medium-High,) look back a few minutes later, and it's been changed back to Custom.  So, I think I'm still infected in some way.  Repeat full scans by MSE and Malwarebytes are not finding anything, however.  Where do I go from here?

Whenever I made any changes in Local Interenet Security settings e.g if I change the status of "Download signed ActiveX controls" from "prompt" to "enable" and save it. Upon re-openning the IE the settings are reverted back to prompt. I already did the On-line Scan by Eset, but it find nothing malicious.

Kindly note that I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3 with IE6. And I can't upgrade IE 6 to 7 or 8 versions because I am using the software that requires IE6 to access the machine for configuration and installation.

I already tried to reset the IE settings but the problem remains.

A:Unable to lower internet security settings

Read other 9 answers

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 was using it as well but discontinued using it after too many “aw snaps this page has become unresponsive do you want to wait or kill” messages; which now that I think about it was probably the first indicator of a problem.Anyway after failing to get Google to work properly, I deleted Google chrome wanting to use IE8 exclusively.I launched IE 8 and rc’vd the warning message that security level settings put my “system at risk”. I reset the security levels to windows default settings only for them to be changed back to this mysterious ‘custom level’ settings at the next launching of IE8. In addition. IE hangs if you click anything other than a link such as start a new tab, attempt to download or enter new search in the Google search window. Subsequent of link selections, or multiple uses of the back or forward buttons will also hang it up. IE hangs up indefinitely giving no choice but to shut it down and re-launch. On occasion IE pages are missing inf rmation like pics or are misaligned.

I cannot open any .exe due to "Internet security settings". I have looked around and for everyone else this seemed to be any easy fix by going to internet options and turning "Launching applications and unsafe files" from "Disable" to "Prompt". However for me it was already on "Prompt".
My suspicion is that this is a virus primarily because it won't let me open any .exe thus not allowing me to open programs like anti-virus software. I have also tried opening cmd and regedit to no success.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks,

Scanning with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware would be a good start, if you could start anything, but given your situation, you'd either have to pull the drive out and slave it to another machine to scan and clean it, or maybe if you're lucky, it might work in Safe Mode.

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

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

Half of the internet seems to be having this problem, and unfortunately none of the proposed fixes have worked for me yet.

Basically, most of my files will work fine and open without any issues. The problem comes with a game expansion mini image downloaded from Demonoid, in the format .mts, I then mounted it with Daemon Tools and went to run the application to install it. This is when I get the error message "These files can't be opened. Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened." In the details it only lists the external drive E:\ which is where the mini image is mounted.

Apologies if anyone else has asked this question and I'm just clogging up your forum, but after three days of struggling to get this to work I'm beginning to despair!

I am having problems with this computer, cannot change settings and cannot uninstall Norton Internet Security (NIS), the real problem here is I cannot access Windows Update site at scanning phrase, and cannot access many secure site, which I suspect that NIS is stopping the system from communicating / creating connection with these sites.

Because I cannot change settings, let alone view the settings of NIS and cannot uninstall it, its stopping me from using many sites and update Windows.

When I try to uninstall or change the settings it gives out messages that inform me that I am not supervisor or must be loggied in as supervisor in NIS, system tray icon for NIS fails to display, and I cannot log in as supervisor ( not that there option to login as supervisor anyway )

Anyone know ways around this? I've heard that this could be done by destroying certain registry keys of NIS but it sounds a bit risky to work on a machine thats not mine.

You'd be infected by virus - Trojan Horse. You can go to "http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_dwnl_free.php" and download the trail version to get rid of the virus.If you wish to uninstall NIS, try download uninstaller program from "www.download.com".

I've seen others on the forum with the same basic issue, but they all have different instructions so am not sure what will or won't work for my situation.
Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Security settings change by themselves, then internet slows to a halt

If may help...if we knew what security settings...how they changed...what the effect on the system was...and such other pertinent details for your situation.

Hello, recently ran into a weird error, as described in the title. Every time a user wants to extract some archive, he right clicks on it and a popup appears saying "internet security settings blocked one or more files from being opened" Can
click Continue or Cancel iirc. The file is not not blocked, but just gets a warning. It does not happen for other users working with the same files and settings. Tried resetting internet explorer security settings, tried setting Enable on Launching applications
and unsafe files and Launching programs and files in an IFRAME in security settings on all the zones, still get the same. Any other options? Could it be UAC or something else? Thanks

Hi, I have Vista Home premium installed recently. I am facing several problems in internet usage such as
1. When I try to send a mail from the lotus notes, the body of the letter remains disabled and it has some deactivated controls on that. So, I could not send any mail using lotsu notes
2. When I try to book train tickets, it works until I open the URL for finding availability, etc. But when I try to pay the ticket fair, it fails and logged out from the session. Which means it fails when it tries to access the credit card details
3. When I try to download something, it shows "page can not be displayed" error but it works fine in XP

I tried by changing the security settings and disabling firewall, etc. I even allowed popup for all the sites also I added those sites in trusted sites.

Can anyone help me to find out the solution?

Hello deepaktyagi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if you may be able to do a system restore at boot or in Safe Mode using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to hopefully fix it.

Hope this helps,

My father recently bought Kaspersky for his main PC because he wanted to feel more protected. He does mainly homebanking, video editing, some basic actions.
The machine is pretty powerful (i7, 16GB RAM). What are the tweaks you would perform in Kaspersky Internet Security, currently in default settings?
I've read several topics about this but they are particulary dated.
Looking forward to your awesome answers

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'm having this rather frustrating problem on new user accounts that I create on this computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit). It doesn't happen on my main account, but when I create a new one, whether it's a standard account or an admin account, it comes up with this when I try to change the keyboard layout. It does it on a few other things, too, and won't let me change the UAC settings (it doesn't respond when I click the OK button). Does anyone know why this is happening? Thanks

edit: The title should read "preventing rundll32.exe from opening", by the way.

A:Internet security settings preventing rundll32.exe on new user accts?

The first thing I would blame is whatever security suite you may be using.
Some of them have a lot of little settings hidden in them regarding account creation and permissions.

...it's worth looking into at least.

Hello. I am running Windows 8 on an hp envy m6 laptop. I have Norton internet security and Superantispyware on this system which I installed at purchase. Both are enabled for real time protection. Lately I have been noticing that my Norton kept showing block notifications for Trojan adclicker. I would run full system scans an get a virus detection along with about 15 to 30 tracking cookies. Quarantined them and restarted my computer on prompt. I noticed that my security setting in internet explorer (10) would be listed as custom and am constantly having to change it back to default. hen I kept getting messages saying internet explorer has stopped working/responding, as well as com powershell messages saying the same. I purchased a license for avast av program and did a full system scan. It found an removed some things but still having the same issues. I then installed malwarebytes and did system scan. again it found and removed some things but still having the same issues.

Iam using windows 7.Thank you for helping.

Hi.  I'm coming here from this thread.  My problems started about 2.5 weeks ago.  I rebooted my computer and noticed problems.  My original description is in the OP of that thread, but here's a list of the basic problems:
the desktop background had changed to black (I was able to change it back)
IE, Chrome, and WMP icons that were pinned to the taskbar had turned into blank document icons.  When I clicked on them, it said the target was not found.  I used the search box to find them and re-pin them to the taskbar
other key programs were missing from the Start menu (e.g., cmd.exe.)  
Internet access was very slow, and connections would sometimes time out.  (Chrome does a lot of "Resolving host...")
Something keeps changing my internet security zone, under Internet Options, to Custom.  I change it to Default (Medium-High,) look back a few minutes later, and it's been changed back to Custom. 
A window I'm typing in will lose focus for like 1 second, and then regain it.  I can't tell which other program the focus is going to.
Internet Explorer started throwing lots of JavaScript errors (I realize JavaScript errors aren't supposed to be my computer's "fault," but this change was sudden, IE hadn't been doing it before, and it occurred at the same time as the other problems.  I just disabled script debugging in IE.
System Restore wouldn't work
I followed all the advice given by Broni in the thread, which inclu... Read more

I am using Internet Explorer 11 from Program Files folder which supposedly launches 64 bit applications. This Internet Explorer 11 settings from Tools Options of Custom Level and Advanced tabs Security features were if selected; Internet Explorer
11 64 bit simply refuses to load websites with host of other truly funny messages like US DOD official website found 'Not Secure' or Microsoft's own msftconnect.com 'This website is not secure' etc., with other websites like default Internet Explorer 11 webpage
doesn't loads fast enough even though all options favours fast loading with Advanced security features; WHY? this ultimately stops after all settings are set to default without single modification in Custom Settings or Advance Security features.
This coupled with Microsoft Edge's unpredictable website loading with frequent Network's internet connection disconnecting to the brink of unusability; nothing; even Microsoft Edge Reset won't resolve these scenarios.
And now Microsoft Edge DEV; with all above said problems and beta version errings uses 1.5 GB of 4G ISP full speed memory to send computer information to Microsoft within half day of 12 hrs. day, rest of day goes with crawling speed of ISP setted 64 Kbps
in short without internet connection; this happening on all days Microsoft Edge DEV use; now a days I use only Internet Explorer 11 64 bit strictly with Default Level & Advance Security features Resetted instead of selecting app... Read more

Sometime, when I use IE8, I keep getting that message "An add-on for this website failed to run. Check the security settings in Internet options for potential conflicts.".Is there a way to stop the message? Note: (I don't think there are viruses or malwares on my computer)

A:"An add-on for this website failed to run. Check the security settings in Internet options for potential conflicts."

Well...I would take a look at my browser add-ons enabled...disable all, then add them back one by one until the error appears again.

I would also check Event Viewer for errors reflecting such failures...occurring in the same timeframe.

Just joined to say thank you to Squeezin who solved my problem in his thread:


What's with Windows having problems with long file names? This is not the first time I've been troubled by this Windows 7 peculiarity. The funny thing is that I did not have this problem with my old Win 7 installation until I wiped out my hard drive and did a fresh install of Win 7.

Anyway it's now solved and I'll always keep in mind the problem of long file names.

Thank you Squeezin.

Im trying to run a script .reg file , but i cant open it because windows keeps blocking it.
I cant figure out how to disable this blocking / security feature.

Windows 7 Ultimate,

The error message when i try to run or edit the .reg file is as follows:

"These files can't be opened"

Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened"

Ive tried disabling every bit of security i can possibly think of.... AV, UAC,windows firewall, killed pretty much every possible security option in the IE8, cant even open the .reg file in safe mode,...wtf

I searched for about a hour online, but only found irrelevant things, and mostly having to deal with UAC.
Any ideas?
Thanks for reading.
