Explorer User Prompt/script Prompt Ie6

Q: Explorer User Prompt/script Prompt Ie6

Hello Everyone,

I am new and have had the horrible experience of getting inundated with ad/Spyware. My pc was running poorly. I saw an article on optimization. I did the opt. and installed Spybot-SD, Spyware, and Microsoft Anti-spyware and followed directions as the article suggested. I also ran the utils in admin safe mode.

My system is now cleaned up (no ad, malware, dialers, viruses) but there are a handful of sites that I can no longer access. When I open IE6 a dialog box pops up called explorer user prompt with the message script prompt with a long black bar. When I click ok, cancel, x, or try to close the browser it just freezes. The cpu usage jumps to 100%. I have to ctrl alt del to back out from the browser or if I keep clicking at close the browser crashes.

I reinstalled IE6 with no luck, messed with the IE security options, deleted all restricted sites, added the sites to the trusted sites, disabled all the three above mentioned anti-spywares, but still no luck. I enabled cookies on the privacy tab, java script, etc. in tools | advanced. I followed each anti-spywares instructions to recover files and turned off agents, etc. but still no luck. I am still locked out and cannot download. All the other sites are fine, it's just the ones before I ran the Spyblaster, etc. utils.

I am so frustrated. How do I fix this? I would really appreciate any advice at all! I don't know what else to do. Anyway, hello and thanks very much in advance everyone!!! I sure hope someone can help me, please..

I'm so glad to have stumbled across this forum, I have not been able to dig up much research to help.
I'm thinking one or another of the utils modified the list in registry.

Thanks again everyone,

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.)

Hello guys, today i tried to enter The elder scrolls forums and when i did a small window appeared named "explorer user prompt" loading some "script prompt" and a jpg named
"xpladv771[1]" came up then i had to shut down the browser.

Now i have AVG and i scaned with it, and it deleted 6 files indicated as "exploit" or something allong with this jpg.All the files were in temp.internet files if i recall.

Every other page looks good, but when i visit the elderscrolls forums.. this comes up and i have top to clean it again.

The last thing i want is a virus.. since i am in big stress in my life, and as my PC is a part of my work and enjoyment i really want it fixed.

I thank you in advance!!!

Hi there, spreading this a little wider to see whether anyone else has experienced the same issue and whether anyone has found a workaround. Disabled strong security on the cert works around the issue as the prompt will not occur without strong security
Summary of issue:
When using Internet Explorer 11 on 2012 R2 with RDS or Citrix
and "Enable Strong Security" is set on a Personal Certificate, the prompt to ALLOW or DON'T ALLOW the application (in this case IE11) to access the certificate appears in another users session.

I keep getting the promt "Scripts are usually safe to run. Do you want to run scripts on this page?" It's driving me nuts. Does anyone know what I should check/uncheck in my settings to stop asking me this prompt ??
Another internet explorer window that I get is that my settings prevent me from sending HTML forms. For example, when I try to sign up for a contests on www.swellwomen.com, my computer won't allow me to send in my information.

Please help!! Thank you-

If that is an exact quote, it doesn't sound like a Microsoft message.

However, try opening Internet Options > Advanced and make sure "disable script debugging" is checked, and uncheck "display a notification" for every error. (Approximate language for both)

Hi all.

I'm using Windows 10, Build 15063.

I have a huge folder of media files (some 15,000+).

Every day, a program that I use generates new media files and automatically places them within this folder.

These newly generated files are new versions of existing files (which they're meant to supersede), but are generated with a different name.

I then need to rename each of these files with the same name as the existing file (which I'll no longer need).

For example: The program creates XYZ.mp3 and I need to rename it to ABC.mp3 - a file that already exists (in this same folder).

However, if I try to rename the file with this existing file's name, I'll get a Windows prompt that says:

<Do you want to rename "XYZ.mp3" to "ABC.mp3 (2)"?>

The problem is that I don't want a file with a different name (a "(2)" version). I simply want the new file to replace the existing file altogether. I want the existing file to simply disappear.

Because I sometimes need to do this dozens of times a day - every day - it's a huge time waster for me to look for the old file (ABC.mp3) and delete it, and then go back and rename the new file (XYZ.mp3) with the name of the deleted file (ABC.mp3).

So my question is this ...

Is there any way in Windows 10 that you can set it up so that when you rename a file using the name of an existing file, it will ask you something like ...

<Do you want to replace the existing ... Read more

So a new box recently built, when booted, defaults to the local administrator account.

This is a Windows 7 machine for a Linux guru that doesn't want to be bothered pressing more buttons than is necessary, if you get my drift.

So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?

If I'm not being clear, please let me know and I will try to explain a little better.

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

Here's what I'm trying to do

in short: win7client is trying to access win7server without any user/pass prompt.

in details:
On my win7client, I have AutoUnattend.xml that has firstlogon.cmd stored in \\win7server\share\firstlogon.cmd. Previously, win7server was winxpserver. There were no login prompts. After migrating to win7server, things became rather difficult.

I have done the following:
1. "[o] Turn off password protected sharing"
2. net user Guest /active:yes (on both win7client and win7server for testing sakes)
3. tried various combination under "control panel\network and sharing center\advanced sharing settings" on both win7client and win7server

I can log in as guest on win7server, by entering "Guest". Closest I get to what I need accomplished is entering ' net use \\win7server /user:Guest "" '. parameter /persistent:yes does not work in this case. I will need to script this to startup to do what I need. It is ugly and I have not tested and I don't like it. There has to be a better way.

I've considered using a powershell script to join win7server homegroup but I can't find any such scripts.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone know why by default running regedit under a standard user account does not prompt the UAC for administrative credentials?

Under an admin account the UAC does prompt when running regedit, but obviously does not prompt for admin credentials.

I was successful at adding and modifying registry keys under a standard user account. It would seem like restricting access to the registry would be essential for security, any reason why its setup like this?

A:Standard user Registry does not prompt UAC

If UAC blocked access to editing registry keys, then almost all changes and all programms you run would have need UAC prompt. As almost anything now changes registry keys.

But as you said leaving it without any blocks, will be great security flaw.
So UAC only controls registry keys which it considers as Administrative.
So, user can edit and create registry keys under HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but it's denied to edit or create most registry enteries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and some registry enteries blocked even for reading.

Just simple examples:
1. In this picture my LUA (standart user) can't even access (read) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SECURITY as it dosen't have permissions.

2. In this example: LUA is denied access, when it tried to create new registr entry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current_Version\Run (Autorun for all users)
But LUA won't be denied if he tries to create registy entry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current_Version\Run
Because it's autorun only for this user and so user should be able to create autoruns for himself...

So, as you can see it's not security flaw, but just something to make standard user's life easier without braking security setup.

Hop it will help you

For the past day or two, I have been seeing command prompt popup windows when I login to Windows XP. I ran a full scan with AVG anti-virus (free) and it moved the following Infection to its virus vault:

Trojan horse Downloader.Zlob.AQXA C:\Documents and Settings\Jacob & Jamie\Local Settings\Application Data\tckihf\nvyvsftav.exe
f.y.i. "Jacob & Jamie" (referenced above) are my 10yr-old twin boys. They downloaded a game called Wizard 101 the night before the virus, popup, and script errors appeared, so I uninstalled the game.
I rebooted and still the command prompt popup window appeared, this time followed by a script error.
(I can attach a printscreen of the lengthy script error, if you need to see it).

I also ran Ad-Aware but it detected nothing. I got a few more script errors when browsing the Internet.
Please advise how to get my computer back to normal--I need it for school & work. Thank you! ~Melinda

I have three different MS Access 2003 applications that run on a SQL backend. For the Access front ends, I am utilizing Jet (.mdw file) for User level security. Scope of the applications has increased to where we are using eForms across multiple business sites. What I would like to do is enhance user security by tapping into Jet through vba before an activity is recorded under that user's name and date stamped, which is something as close to an electronic signature that Access could get I think. This would be a separate step from initial application log on, which I already have users do.
Ideally, the user would press a button to 'sign' a form, the vba subroutine would prompt the user to enter his application password, then verify the password against the users mdw file and then stamp the record with user name and date.
I know how to do everything except the password verification part. I am familiar with DAO, ADO and ADOX protocols within vba but all I can find is code to set up a new user and assign a password, but not verify a self-prescribed password of a user.
Does anybody have any comments, suggestions?
Many thanks.

A:Solved: Prompt for user password in MS Access vba

ctwest, sorry for the delay in responding, but Access questions are best posted on the Business Applications forum, even though yours is a programming question.
If you haven't found an answer to this question yet, you do not need to prompt users for their password to identify them.
Access knows who they are when they have logged on, you can identify them using the CurrentUser or Application CurrentUser.

I've started running the Sapphire TRIXX utility in my user account only when I need it to set a quiet fan curve when playing a game. I was having some instability problems following my upgrade to Windows 8.1 when TRIXX was set to start when Windows loads.

TRIXX installed with a shield on its icon and there appears to be no way of running the program without entering the admin password at the UAC prompt within a user account. I've tried seeting permissions for my user account to have full access to TRIXX but that makes no difference. I did find a utility Runasrobin which does work but it runs its own service and I'm unsure whether this is a security hole.

So how do I run TRIXX from a user account without the UAC prompt appearing (and without disabling UAC)?

Hi Brink,

A:UAC prompt for User Accounts Control Panel

Hello Malickfan,

If you have your UAC settings set to "Always notify" (top level), then it would give you a UAC prompt when you try to open the User Account Control Settings.

If this happens each time you wake or restart the PC, then check to see if you may have mistakenly added a shortcut to it in your startup programs.

For example, a game I play, Maplestory (don't judge), would always ask me for the administrator password when I open it which allows me to enter in the password and start the game. Now, it doesn't do that anymore and I have no idea how that happened. I have all my gaming and work and other stuff on this user, which is separate from the admin one. Since all of my things are on this user, I wouldn't want to have to switch to the admin user every time I try to play a game.

Long story short, is there a setting that makes your computer automatically prompt you for the administrator's password when required on another user?

Hi all,

I'm using W7x32 Enterprise in a domain and this only started happening recently so it must be a security update or a gpo pushed setting I suppose.

Incl. screenshots here's what happens.
1. I lock my computer using "Windows + L" or "ctrl+alt+del + lock computer"
2. I see the screen in attachment 1 (01042010001.jpg)
3. I press ctrl+alt+del to unlock the computer and instead of being prompted to enter my password, I have to select what user I want to use (and since only one option is listed this screen is absolutely senseless) - see attachment 2 (01042010002.jpg)
4. I hit enter or click on the user icon
5. I get to the "enter password" screen to unlock the computer - this is what I would expect to see after hitting "ctrl+alt+del" in the first place - see attachment 3 (01042010003.jpg).

Is there any way to remove this "user selection" screen in step 3/4? I know it's just an extra "enter" to hit but it's completely void in my opinion...

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

I am trying to make a shortcut to launch a program with admin privileges, with User Account Control (UAC) enabled, from a regular user account.

I had previously used 'runas' to launch a program with admin privileges from a regular user account using a similar method in the "How to Create an Elevated Program Shortcut Any User is able to Run" tutorial to create an elevated shortcut. In my case I am launching Process Explorer as an admin user from a regular user account. I had created a batch file with the command, then created a shortcut to the batch file, although the method in the tutorial where the entire command is just written out as the shortcut target is much simpler.

The 'runas' command used to work fine with UAC turned OFF. However it does NOT work with UAC turned ON. I'm not sure why. If I turn UAC off, it works. But if UAC is turned on, even though the application (Process Explorer) is launched with the admin user account, for system processes it shows <access denied> and no network and no disk information. I have verified the command launches as the admin user, since the admin user account username is listed next to the process, and the name of the admin user account is shown in brackets in the title bar of the application.

Interesting I also tried the Sysinternals 'ShellRunas' utility, which also did NOT work with UAC turned ON. I registered the context menu entry, then I right clicked to select "Run as different user...", and the... Read more

I have a special case where a user needs to run an installed executable as an admin. This exe was written for XP and will only work properly when ran as admin. I do not want the user to have an admin account or the admin pass, but he needs to be able to start and stop this program at will. I have tried checking the box to always run as admin, creating a desktop shortcut to run as admin and I even tried creating a shortcut that uses the command line runas /savecred but all attempts failed. Win7 always asks for the admin pass. I understand this is how it is supposed to be, but are there any options available to me? If I turn off UAC will that do the trick? But will turning off UAC override the GPO I have setup for non-admins? Thanks for your advice : )

I apologize if this is a duplicate or anything. I need to find a way to allow a standard user to execute a program that requires administrative access. I have attempted to set the program in compatibility to run as administrator but this has no effect on the standard user. For this program to execute it will still prompt them for an admin login before it opens.

This entire issue is negated if I make the user a local administrator but this isn't a long term solution I want to be using. Is there a way to keep UAC turned on but to allow the program to run for specific users? I'm open to any suggestions that do not compromise local security and appreciate any help you can provide.

I am a Vista Home Premium user. It all started when I kept getting a User Name and Initials prompt upon opening any Office document (WORD or EXCEL). I troubleshooted the issue, uninstalled and reinstalled Office, and still the nagging prompt panel. Upon Googling the issue, I discovered that I was unable to open or change permissions in the registry User Info file in the registry.

Still researching this issue, just today, I am now, when the UAC kicks in, getting a prompt to enter my OS log-on password! When I put in the password, it doesn't take it and the prompt for password screen returns!! I believe that the registry has locked this feature, and I am thus unable to get the password to register!

This is alarming! Is this an indication of malware or virus? I am presently running Trend Micro, but have no idea how to proceed. I went to try and turn off UAC, but when I click to do this, it prompts for my password, doesn't take the password, so I am not able to access this feature.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am sorry if I am being unclear, but basically I am getting the OS password now--when, for example, I right click on a program and go to RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR, the password prompt comes up!

I've replicated this issue on a few PCs all running Windows 8.1, so I'm not sure if this is a problem for Win 8 users too.

When we set the printer properties to require printer credentials (a print code set on the printer) to be entered before printing, the prompt sits in the background, minimized to the taskbar instead of popping up in the foreground.

So the user thinks the printing has failed, when it is waiting for the credentials silently in the background.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

My user folder is named "Mike&Michelle" but because of the ampersand, anything that uses command prompt to access the folder path gives an error unless the path is quoted.

A:Ampersand in User Folder Causing Errors in Command Prompt

What you want to do here, is to change your userprofile folder name, is that right? To what? If you change it to "Mike and Michelle", you'll have the same issue.

Hello Everyone,

I have the ability to run AT scheduler from the UI and set security configuration to run a program as a specific user who is logged on, run as soon as the configuration is created, and then delete\expire the trigger after 2 minutes.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible to do with in powershell or command prompt through the AT command to a remote computer to do this?

There has to be a way to do this.

I have recently begun experiencing this problem after updating to Windows 8.1 (although I'm not sure that it's directly related to the update).  I see that similar questions have been asked on other forums, but I see none for 8.1.
The best way to describe the problem is this: while using a particular window (such as a browser window or word processor window), the window will randomly become inactive. Sometimes it will switch back to being active automatically, other times I have to manually click back into the window to use it again.  This is especially frustrating when trying to type or use drop-down menus.  As I type this question I am constantly clicking back into the browser window to keep it active.  The problem appears not to be specific to any particular program or internet browser, but occurs for any window that I happen to be using. 
I don't know if this is relevant, but the activity of one particular background process appears to correlate with the timing of the problem. The process, "HPConnectedRemoteService", is continually appearing and disappearing from the Task Manager. It appears, increases gradually to about 20% CPU, then disappears.  Any given active window will become inactive when "HPConnectedRemoteService" reaches about 20% CPU. Again, I do not know for sure if this process is involved with the problem though. Attached are several screenshots of the processes running, in case they can aid in solving this.

I know that there are already several threats about this subject, but it does not reflect my problem.
All those threats concern network printers serviced by a print server.
My problem is as follow:
We are going to receive about 250 Canon C250i printers for our 250 branche offices.
Our users are going to print directly to those printers in the network without a printserver in between.
They use Windows 7 Enterprise on their workstations in a 2012r2 domain and the are no local admins.
I made a policy with the settings to allow point and print and I allowed the Class ID of the printer, WSD Printer and WSD Scanner.

This works fine. When a user installs the printer, they don't get the UAC prompt and are allowed to install the driver for the devices.
Only in this process they do get prompted for a PNPX device mapping. {cee8ccc9-4f8b-4469-a235-5a22869eef03}.
I also added this class ID to the policy of driver classes a user is allowed to install, but without succes.
I think there is happing more than just installing a driver becauso of the "mapping" part.
Has anyone had this problem or knows how to solve this?

Thanks, JFTE

As a single home user, in setting up Windows 10 I was not aware there is a hidden administrator who controls changes to the system.  I discovered this when I went to  open the check disk function.  I have spent hours trying different prescribed
methods found online online for ogetting access to the elevated command prompt - but all end saying I don't have the priviledge.  In another approach, my computer tells me I do not have access to luscr.msc and to instead go to account change.  Here's
the kicker.  Once there, I am not allowed to change from "standard" to "administrator"  - this is a Catch 22 since I am the only registered user of the system.  HELP - I'm not techie, but I'm also not a complete dummy.

Good afternoon.
I work on a PC running Windows 7 and I use Internet Explorer 10. I need to use IE10 as certain applications I access on a regular basis are not compatible with IE11 (Even in compatibility viewer). Recently I performed some Windows Updates
on my machine. Whenever I boot the PC and start IE the first time it will open an additional tab requesting I upgrade to IE11. I wish to disable this automatic reminder and I believe it is linked to a Windows Update to IE.
Could someone advise on how to get this disabled/removed?
