Windows Filtering Platform

Q: Windows Filtering Platform

In the task scheduler, under Windows Filtering Platform, an item exists called bfeonservicestarttypechange, where bfe stands for Base Filtering Engine. I know not enough about firewalls to know whether I may disable the task scheduler entry. I like the
Microsoft Windows Firewall and always use it.

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.)

The typical "answer" to this "problem" if you ask google is 1) reinstall windows or 2) uninstall the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) software. You may read that it is an "extra" driver you accidentally installed.

Not true.

These errors come when you have installed the TPM but have not enabled the BIOS settings that activate it.

To get rid of these errors and take advantage of the added Trusted Platform Module (TPM) functionality, you need to activate TPM in your BIOS. Instructions are here:

I have had AT&T Uverse that came with a 2Wire 3800HGV-B Gateway for about a year now. I enabled MAC Filtering and entered all my home computer's MAC Addresses. About six months ago my brother tried to connect his work laptop to my wireless network but it would not connect until I added its MAC Address. For this past Christmas, I bought a new HP laptop running Windows 7 (64-bit). To my surprise before I had registered its MAC Address, I was able to connect to my wireless network and surf the Internet. I checked and MAC Filtering was enabled. I diabled and re-enabled. I rebooted the wireless gateway several times and still I was able to connect with this new laptop even though its MAC Address had not been registered. I removed an existing registered MAC Address and again to my surprise I was able to connect to my wireless network and surf the Internet despite its MAC Address had been removed completely or moved to the Block area. I showed this to my work Sr. Network Admin and he found nothing wrong. I have asked AT&T Support but so far no response. I doubt it is a hardware issue. I think it is the firmware. I am at the latest version of the firmware. I think I may need to re-flash the firmware. Since I do not techically own this gateway device, I am reluctant to do anything without AT&T approval. I did try contacting the gateway manufacturer 2Wire but they refuse to help me and directed me to contact AT&T. I am using WPA2-PSK with AES. Anyone have any sugge... Read more

Hi,

I recently bought a new Dell laptop. I went to add a new standard user (for my kids) and set set up parental controls. To my surprise, this version did not come with web filtering. I went to the Help, and asked "What happened to Parental COntrols Web Filtering and Activity Report?". The response is:

"The Parental Controls web filter and activity reporting program isn't included in this version of Windows. To enable web filtering and activity reporting, you'll need another program from Microsoft or another company."

I would be very grateful if someone could tell me how I can install the web filtering and activity reporting capability on this new laptop just as I do on my other Windows 7 and VIsta machines.

Thanks for any response!

Hello,
  I'm working with Bitdefender Total Security 2019.  I've noticed that their firewall is enabled when my Dell Latitude E6410 connects to my wireless network approximately 1.5 minutes after Windows 7 Professional starts.  In an e-mail, the
company told me that their firewall is enabled after the specified interval because of Windows Base Filtering Engine (BFE).  They also described the issue this way, BFE controls
the operation of the Windows Filtering Platform.  This is a network traffic processing platform that allows software to ?hook? into Windows networking stack and perform such functions as firewall, traffic shaping, filtering, etc. When this service loads
with a delay, it also triggers a delay of the Bitdefender firewall driver, which translates into the notification "Firewall status changed". The driver is coded to wait until BFE is completely loaded, otherwise it can't work.
     I've worked w/Checkpoint's ZoneAlarm Firewall (free edition) and it is enabled right when Windows starts, there is no delay.  Can
I modify BFE to enable Bitdefender Firewall to initiate at Windows startup?

Any and all feedback would be appreciated!

Thank you

I have some MS BASIC programs I wrote back in the '80s and a couple of them I still use. However the later versions of Windows can't access them. I have an old comp with XP on it and that can cope, but versions later than that can't. I know there is a Windows BASIC app, but that seems to be quite different and can't read the original MS BASIC, and I no longer have the energy to start from scratch and rewrite what are quite lengthy programs.

Hi - I have just built a new i7 920 for a mate, he does graphic work so he needed XP 32 bit OS so as to be compatible with his current software(he will upgrade in the near future).
I used a Gigabyte EX58-UD3R board with 6GB of PC3 12800 OCZ Gold memory, a Zalman 750Watt PSU, CPU is i7 920 with standard cooler, 7200rpm Western Digital Cabiar drive, LG Dual layer +/- burner and Quadro 4850 graphics.
My problem is that the system starts up and seemed to run fine but then simply would reboot. It stays running fine in bios, and I have tried a Windows repair and a full fresh re-image. These haven't worked, the system kept running fine whilst it was loading the OS, then when I loaded all the drivers all was well, but then it crashed and restarts when Windows is simply starting and running for a minute or a few seconds, or before it even fully starts. The OS is Service Pack 3......
Pls note, it is not blue screening, it's as if some one has hit the reset button....
Am I missing something important about compatability of the OS here with the i7 ??? pls help - desperate to get this fixed asap!

I current have Windows 7 and my wireless router is provided with bellsouth/att. However, my Westel router was replaced with 2WIRE. it does not accurately show my mac addresses. my Ethernet and wireless connections are all listed as one device and once I enable mace filtering, I am booted off the internet and unable to log on. Also, I received an email that i tried to delete but it opened anyway and my browser shut down immediately, could this have been sent to gain access through my computer through a surveillance program like spectorsoft pro.

Malwarbytes continues to scan my computer but i keep getting Broken-OpenCommand and I got HijackDisplayProperties. what is this. I have a bran new dell computer and Mcafee Internet Security Suites. Please advise as to what I should do. Thanks, I am new to all of this, do I need to have the someone come in a scan, fix, repair. Or should I reset to factory delivery.

A:2wire router Windows 7 will not enable mac filtering

Well, mac filtering is a painful way of achieving a useless affect. I tried to use it to allow only the computers I know onto the internet (the purpose), but every time, it just booted them all off the network. From what I've read, it's pretty useless. Doing things like mac filtering, not broadcasting SSID, etc...only serve to make it more difficult for you to connect to the internet. The signal is transmitted in many more ways than that. Somebody with the right tools can still find your network even if you do things like that (mac filter, hide SSID, etc.) The best way to stay secure is to use WPA2 encryption with a long password (random, non-dictionary based ASCII characters, like !*?R#PZPwv^)Sounds like that email may have infected your PC somehow. You can either hack in out in the "Am I Infected? What do I do?" sub-forum (NOT in this topic!!), or you can do the simple thing and just reset to factory settings (my recommendation).But yeah, forget about the mac filtering. Just use a strong WPA2 password, and reset to factory settings to get rid of any malware you might have picked up. If you had had it longer, I would say to try and fight it. But with one fresh from the factory, you might as well just reset it to factory settings. Good luck!

I first got the Win 7 Security 2012 issue. I thought I fixed it with Malwarebytes and TDSSKiller... but then my Google pages would redirect. I "fixed" that but then my desktop icons were gone. I manually changed some registry entries and they reappeared. Now... I noticed Windows Firewall isn't working (and Base Filtering Engine isn't loaded). I tried using several System Restore points but it couldn't find a file (not sure which one) and didn't run.

Here is my DDS Log:

Windows 7
Windows Firewall Advanced Security

How can I block all outgoing traffic to the internet except one program? I have tried making an outgoing rule to BLOCK all programs, and then an outgoing rule to ALLOW out traffic from the program I need. However, the block rule is took priority and the allow rule was ignored.

I don't want a single outbound connection except one program; no ICMP, DNS, TCP, UDP, MALWARE, nothing. Surely I don't have to individually block every program and port do I?

A:Egress filtering, Windows Firewall Advanced Security

Okay, here's what I did next: Only port I want open for outgoing is 20050

Create outbound rule,
--Custom
--All programs
--Protocol=TCP
--Source Port=Any
--Destination Port=1-20049, 20051-65535 (leaving the 20050 hole)
--Block
--Applies to Domain, Public, and Private profiles

If I am correct, this will allow no TCP traffic outbound except port 20050. I guess I should now create a separate outgoing rule to completely block every other protocol. Does this sound right?

I've got a problem with a machine which won't connect to the internet.  I thought that it was something to do with a faulty network card at first but have changed the card and the problem persists.
Whilst I was monkeying around with the card, a popup appeared telling me the firewall wasn't running.  I went in to the Control Panel and tried to switch the firewall on and got an error 0x8007042c "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings."
I decided to look this up, and eventually made my way in to services.msc .  This showed me that a number of services weren't starting.
I traced through the dependencies and discovered that they were all dependent on the Base Filtering Engine.
I tried to start the Base Filtering Engine Service and got "Error 2 - The system cannot find the file specified''.
I have run sfc/scannow several times, both from my Windows 7 CD and within Windows itself.  It hasn't found any problems.  I have tried deleting BFE.DLL and running sfc/scannow.  It restored the file and the problem still hasn't gone away. 
The amount of information I've managed to get from the internet has been sparse and I don't know what to do next.
 
I really am at my wits end with this one.  If anyone could help I'd be most grateful.
 
Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind, i found it. It's under tools > message rules. Sorry guys.

I remember in outlook express i could define keywords for removing spam.
I could set a preference like, if an email has "rolex" or "viagra" in it's subject line to be moved or deleted. I can't find that in Windows Live Mail, anyone know where it is or if it exists?

A:Windows Live Mail - Keyword Spam Filtering

It looks like the Junk email options were moved from the Tools menu to the Actions menu in WLM (2009). But if you want to specify the specific words in the subject line yourself, I believe only the usual Message Rules can/could do that.

My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, it was upgraded from vista. my computer model is the HP Pavilion Slimline s3300f
this first happened about a week after I upgraded to 7 from vista. the high cpu usage usually happens at startup and for some reason also makes it so that it takes a long time for my browser to start up also, I've also noticed that this also seems to happen randomly though that is uncommon. Another instance of this happening is when the internet gets disconnected. Usually I wait until the high cpu usage goes away away on its own, usually 20 minutes to an hour but that had become frustrating, so I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what I can do.
heres a screen shot of what I observe as high cpu usage

A:At startup windows firewall of base filtering enginer uses up 50%cpu

Welcome
With those problems, it sounds like you may have actually upgraded than do a clean intall. You can and should do a clean install with an upgrade version CD.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. I am getting an error message from Norton security that tells me I need the Base Filtering Engine. I can't find it so I'm told to run Microsoft Fix it tool to replace this component. I run Microsoft Fix it and I get the message "Windows Firewall Cannot be set as the default firewall." It then says its "because of an existing Group Policy or because you are using the McAfee Firewall firewall program." I use to use McAfee but now I'm using Norton. I searched by I don't have any MacAfee  programs on my PC as they were all uninstalled. I don't know what Group Policy to change or how to change it.

PC: Gateway dx4860
OS: Windows 7 64 bit Service Pack 1

I have been trying all day to install the windows 7 SP1 platform update (kb2670838). When I restart my computer to finalize the update, it will get to 98% then say "Failed configuring windows update. Reverting changes". Checking the windows update history tells me it failed due to error 80070005, which googling says it is a permissions error. The reason I don't just forget about the update is because some games require it to be installed.

Things I have tried:

Windows update troubleshooter, which claimed it fixed 80070005 but didn't really do anything

Turning windows firewall and antivirus off

Installing in a clean boot slate

Running subinacl with the instructions in this microsoft support page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/968003

Manually resetting windows update components

Contemplating suicide

Scanning with Microsoft Safety Scanner, no files infected.

Also, I've been installing it manually from the microsoft website. When I try to use windows update, it hangs on 0% downloading, or most recently "Checking for Updates". I think this is related to the cause of 80070005.

I have noticed in the last few weeks that Windows Live Messenger don't start as it should be.
Clicking the icon, opens the windows live messenger conneting window saying it is connecting, etc, but after a while comes out a message saying: windows live communications platform stopped working!
Does anyone knows how to solve this?
Thanks,

A:windows live communications platform stopped working!

Hello Jorge, you joined just before I did The first thing I would do is try a System Restore point from before the problem started if you have one. It is also often suggested to update to the latest version if you have not already. Uninstalling, then reinstalling is also a suggestion.

Here is something else to try. Try deleting the wldlog.dll On x64 Version of Windows 7 this is located in

C:\program files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared

In x86 version it would be

C:\program files\Windows Live\Shared

Save a copy of the dll just in case. Right click on the dll and choose Copy. Now go to desktop and right click an empty area and choose Paste. This will give you a copy to copy back in case of any problems. Now delete the wldlog.dll and Try and launch messenger. If no fix, just copy the wldlog.dll back to it's original location. Let us know how it goes. If you'd like extra assurance, create a System Restore point before you start:

Hi all,

I recently installed a couple new screen savers. They work exactly like they're supposed to but once I return to to my computer a warning appears saying "Windows Live Communication Platform has stopped working" and windows live messenger gets signed out. This is the "problem details" provided:

Any ideas on why these screen savers are affecting messenger like this?

A:Windows Live Communications Platform has stopped working

Code presumably from the screen saver (saver1.dll) has been injected into the wlcomm process. There appears to be a problem in saver1.dll and that in turn makes the entire process crash.

I'd suggest either finding an updated version of the screen saver software, and in particular the saver1.dll module, or removing it. It's almost certainly a bug in the current version of saver1.dll.

So I've seen this problem all across the internet, but I haven't found a stable solution. I hope someone from here can help me =)

Recently, I've downloaded a couple of screensavers. They all work perfectly fine, but some of them will produce the error in my title. If I preview the screensaver or use the screensaver, then move my mouse to close it, I get a window saying "Windows Live Communications Platform Has Stopped Working" and I get the normal options of closing and sending a report, or just closing the program. My Windows Live Messenger will be signed out, and I will need to sign on again.

Now, like I said, not every single screen saver does that to me. Only certain ones. I downloaded four of them thus far: Inception screensaver from the Inception website; both Dark Knight screensavers from The Dark Knight website, and the Batman Arkham Asylum screensaver. Only the Batman: Arkham Asylum screensaver works perfectly, and does not give me the above error message.

Hi I have a friend who just bought a new computer about two weeks aog. She is running windows Vista Home Basic. The problem she is having involves yahoo games. I am not familiar with vista at all.

She is using internet explorer 7 with java that she installed for vista

When loading the games the java platform will not load

However when i installed a different broswer the java platform ran with the browser and i was able to lead the games and play them however some of the buttons were kinda faded out like as if you could not use them.

I tried all kinds of things and can't get it to work. Any ideas and i would also like to know about which types of browsers are compatible with vista.
