Trusted- PC

Q: Trusted- PC

2nd post on this subject

I want to remove two computers from my trusted-PC list.In security info the only option I get is to remove all trusted-PC.If I use this option will I have to do trusted-PC again for each Computer I want ?

Preferred Solution: Trusted- PC

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: Trusted- PC

Hello Fred, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Unfortunately, Microsoft has changed it to only being able to remove all "trusted devices" now instead of being able to remove a specific "trusted PC" as before.

If you remove all trusted devices, you would then have to go through the process of having the other PCs added as trusted again.

I know that many "clean" sites must include ads in order to be able to support the site, so I wonder:
Is it technologically possible and is it practical for a normally clean website, such as this, to tell me as I login that
1. it has not been hacked by criminals
2. that the ads included for not-logged-in people run on this server and not someplace else, and do not have keyloggers, trojans, viruses, and other crapware in them

Hey guys
Need something trusted and secure. Need to make “onion layers security” with the most secure and harder to hack/crack software. How to protect yourself from government in the internet, I’m from Russia, need to post few docs and article on the internet but need to be 100% sure they won’t find me. I have no clue what Edward Snowden is doing here in this corrupt and dictator country. Please use simple English, basic tech terms, be as detailed as possible, or direct me to articles links with info, but real good tips will be appreciated.
I just bought new hard drive going to install new OS and other programs on it:
1 Which OS? Windows 10, Linux, Qubes, Whonix etc, or use Whonix inside of Qubes? which the most secure? If Linux which version? How the best to configure it?
2 Then need to install virtual machine on it? which one?
3 Then which third party programs I need on it?
4 What browser to use? If TOR - What’s the best Configuration for TOR browser? As I know just using TOR browser is not enough they still can find you. and Use China server? 
5 Need Antivirus? Antispyware? Which one?
I guess that’'s should be enough?
Thanks a lot for saving my ass.
Moved from General Chat

A:Need something trusted and secure

I would go with tailsOS in this case, there are plenty of tutorials and documentation for it.
It was Snowdens OS of choice after all.

I have added a site to my "trusted sites" list in Internet Explorer:
However I cannot get the site to load at all.
I keep getting the error message:

I have tried over and over to find the problem.

Websites like downoad3k.com, download.com, softpedia.com and others offer hundreds of downloads claiming that the products they are servicing have been tested for viruses, spywares, adwares, backdoors etc. But at the same time, some of them make the "report spyware" option available for users. So are their products to be trusted or not? Has anyone here downloaded a software from these websites and which turned out later to be infected by a spyware or worse?

A:Trusted Websites, Are They Really?

Hi mesmerized.

When downloading anything off the Net, it is up to you to ensure that your personal computer protection is adequate and uptodate.

There are literally hundreds of download sites out there and some are decidedly dodgy. A good first indication is by using SITE ADVISOR or WOT. Reputable sites such as Download.Com, Softpedia, Tucows, MajorGeeks, can generally be trusted to have done their best to ensure that the stuff they host is as safe as can be.

How does an application go from not verified to not trusted. I have a program called setupwizard.exe. It is part of BeyondTV. Recently I installed a quad TV tuner card and ran this program to setup the tuners. The system is a windows 10 clean install. Today I noticed that the other tuner card was not found in device manager. After several attempts I switched the tuner card between PC's. After rebooting both systems the tuner card in each PC was found. I then tried to run the setup program and got the "This app has been blocked for your protection." So this application worked with in the last three weeks. Now it won't run. I then tried to run the setupwizard on the other PC and got the same message. I have a third system running windows 10. This system has been offline for that last couple of weeks. I booted this system up and was able to run the setupwizard with no problem. I then copied the setup wizard from the system that worked and tried to run it on the failing system. It still got blocked. I then tried to reinstall the BeyondTV program and the installer also got the blocked message. I just installed this program two weeks ago.
So the question is what changed. The only thing I can think of is a windows update. in the last two weeks.
When I ran the program on the system that was offline a pop up message asking for permission to run a not verified application. But no the pop up says not trusted.

When ever I go to the following site I get a Security Alert that states that the certificate was issued by a company that I have not chosen to trust...would I like to proceed, or install the certificate. Normally, I just click "YES" to proceed and I get my data. Sometimes I'll re-install the certificate as if it will do any good for next time...but it doesn't.

What is the domain of the site? The "*" just means any prefix for a URL on that site would be trusted. I don't like adding entries there as it basically gives them permission to bypass security measures on your computer.

Trusted Installer is the internal "user" account that is active when installing/uninstalling programs. Don't stress about it. It is active ONLY when installing or uninstalling programs.

If you remove it or otherwise disable it, you will no longer be able to install any programs.

I regulary browse a site called 'Desktop Nexus' usually without problems. Recently a window appears on my screen every few minutes or so which says 'The current website is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list. Do you want to allow this? -
Current site:http://ad.xtendmedia.com
Trusted site: res://ieframe.dll'
Thing is, if I don't click 'Yes' to allow this, I lose Internet access/lose internet connection.
I have noticed that this window only pops up when one of the advertisements on Desktop Nexus fails. Should I be worried ? Also, is there a way to stop from recurring ?

Oy, hey there,
Not sure if this belongs under Networking or IIS, it's a bit of both...

I'm mainly wondering how users from a trusted domain are viewed on another, especially in relation to IIS with Integrated Windows Authentication.

Here's the deal, I've got webserver on DomainA.
I've got a user on DomainB.
DomainA trusts DomainB.
DomainB\user wants to use IWA controlled app on DomainA\Webserver.

When DomainB\user accesses a resource on DomainA, is he still viewed as DomainB\user, or is DomainA(anything) associated with that user?

Because for the custom application, which happens to be on the webserver, I need to allow access for each user. So would I simply put DomainB\user? Even though the webserver is on DomainA?

Now to part 2...

Also, I want to use IWA on the webserver on DomainA; will it be able to work with a user account from DomainB?

To put it horribly graphically, I'm trying to do this:
(DomainB: DomainB\user)---using IWA--->(DomainA: Webserver)

Networkingly speaking, is that just impossible?
As far as a user coming in from a trusted domain...does that fall to pieces concerning IWA, causing them to enter a DomainA username\password?

Thanks for convolutedly reading this.

Hi folks,
I think I have a BIG problem, but I'm too noobish to know for sure.  
1. I have 100s to 100s of thousands of files & folders with a unique footprint.
2. Each looks innocent ... at first.
3. Right-click > Properties > Security starts the intrigue
4. System, Adminstrators, and Users have Read & Execute permission; my account does not show up; while TrustedInstaller has Full control. I know -- TI comes from Microsoft (as do some rootkits).
5. Click Advanced > Owner & find that the owner is Administrators, but now I am there as a potential Owner.
6. Click Auditing > Continue to find that a new player (hidden until now) "Everyone" has "Special" access.
7. Double-click Special to learn that Special includes Take ownership & Change permissions (for both Successful & Failed)!
That sounds like an invitation to hackers. Particularly when 1 such file is efsui.exe -- with Encription connections that ransomware loves.
Meanwhile, there are several other unusual footprints that TrustedInstaller produces.
I've spent a full week on this and gained nothing but an acute case of paranoia.
Any advice would be appreciated.

A:Can TrustedInstaller Be Trusted?

Many of the installers out there are junk/nasty installers, it is impossible to differentiate.  What helps a little is to look at the items found in a search and go to the actual vendors site, this is not fool proof!  You must be very diligent watching for obscure boxes or choices within the applets, many are confusing.  You will run into some where you must hit the decline button to get no added junk, I even being very careful still pick up things.

Hello, fellow computer users

First I want to thank you for giving me this chance to seek help in this amazing forum
Second, here is my problem:
While seeking a software to protect my pc from an infected flash drive, I installed this software called USB guardian ( Website: http://www.usb-guardian.com ), and after using it I found it totally useless and doesn't do anything at all, so I started wondering if it's fake. I checked the their website and it said that the software is guaranteed to be clean by Softpedia, however there is nothing about that in softpedia. Also their page on CNET was removed (I know that because there's a cached version in google search).
I checked the setup file (the installer) and Norton said it's good to go, but checking the .exe file in the installation folder, Norton insight said it's bad and there are indications that it's not safe. I uninstalled the software but I'm still worried so I have to ask:
How do I know if this software is safe or not?
Is uninstallation of any software a complete process? or can it leave files behind without deleting that can threaten my pc?
Can I be infected? and how do I know if I am in this case?
Is Norton alone enough for protection form software and malware or do I need an extra software?
Operating system: Windows 8
Security: Norton Internet Security 2013
I really hope you can help me with this matter  

A:Can this software be trusted or am I infected?

Softpedia says its an ad-supported application that offers install a toolbar and offers to change your homepage/default search engine. That may be the reason it was removed from CNET.usb-guardian-setup.exe is the name of the installation file so you should be able to remove it from Add/Remove Programs via Control Panel or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7/8. It most likely added an entry to run itself at Startup so you will need to open Task Manager and end the process before uninstalling.You may want to get a second opinion. Submit the setup file and the .exe Norton detected to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:Jotti's virusscanVirusTotalVirSCAN--In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.

I believe my computer has a rootkit on it. The Gmer program wouldn't even do a full scan as it wouldn't let me click Systems, Section, Devices, Module, Processes, threads, or Libraries.I recently reinstalled Vista because my computer wouldn't even load properly. I needed to use System Recovery. I thought I had formatted the computer when I reinstalled it but I guess it saved my old stuff for me(which is obviously infected). Before I reinstalled Vista I had deleted about 30 gigs of stuff but the harddrive still read the same space taken up. My wireless internet also doesn't seem to work. Edit: I tried to install Kaspersky trial and it was interrupted beyond my control!I'm running an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 1.80 GHz2 gigs of Ram64 Bit Operating SystemI would like to fix the computer but if you can't help me I'll format it. -Geezor

Not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but as its related to IE I am putting this here
What difference does it make whether or not a website is added to the trusted Sites list. The reason I ask is some of the icons on a website do not show up when not in the trusted sites list and I cannot figure out which setting I can change to make this
work without adding this to the trusted sites list.

Dear Tech Support Guy,

Could you please tell what risks there are in making a website my trusted website?

I get continually asked, for instance, on amazon.com--every time I go to a new page there I get asked, and it takes three or four clicks to make the request go away.

Is this legitimate? It has never happened to me before.

If I decide not to add it to my list of trusted websites (it may Norton that is doing it), could you please tell me what I can do to make the requests stop? I have some repetitive motion issues, and this is causing me to click an awful lot.

Thank you very much,


A:Solved: Trusted Websites

You can add any website to the Trusted list if you are sure that it can be trusted not to steal private information or install malware on your machine. Amazon is trustworthy. Read their privacy policy. Generally, any web site that is well-known can be trusted. They don't make money or get site hits if they alienate their visitors.

As to why it appeared suddenly, there may have been changes to your security settings. Look in Internet Options and set all the sections to their default levels. Amazon should not be causing these in the first place.
