Preferred Solution: Help Allowing Proxy Server to Access a Program

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.)


I have a stock/financial program installed on my computer. Every time I try to access it through a standard account, I get a UAC prompt that says an unidentified program wants access to my computer. I've tried going to properties while in my administrator account and allowed access for the standard account, but I am still prompted to enter my administrator password every time I try to open the program. Any ideas?

When configuring ICF (WinXP's native firewall .... yes I know it's not that great so please ..... no lambasting me) to allow windows messanger to send and receive files I set up access to the proper ports and set the IP# to (localhost). I still run into "blocks" with file transfers, when checking my configuration I noticed that the had changed to something like "user-i9w1xnci5g". Is this normal ? Or is it a sign of another problem?
I checked further and noticed wherever I used the localhost it changed to the same number. I don't know if this'll make a difference but I'm running WinXP home.

A:WinXP firewall (ICF), allowing program access

You can take the IP address out reversing what you did before, you were referring to in your above post and then restart your computer.

That's not why MSN Messenger can not send files, OK? It's a security measure in WinXP itself that modifying ICF won't change. Here's the fix although, I personally don't recommend modifying any Windows seruity settings. Windows is insecure enough. So proceed at your own risk. The below is tested and verified to work if followed carefully.


Using a firewall to connect to .NET Messenger Service with WinXP
Solve ID: 16

Click Start, then click the Control Panel

If you're in category view click Network and Internet connections then click Network Connections.

Right click your connection, then click Properties. For cable modem users, your connection will usually be called Local Area Conneciton. For dialup, it should be the name of your Internet Service Provider.

Click the Advanced Tab, verify the Internet Connection Firewall is turned on. Then click the Settings tab.

Click the add button.

In the Service Settings, type in the following information (use the screenshot above for assistance). For Description enter MSN Connection for Name or IP address enter, for both External and Internal ports enter 1863. Verify TCP is selected and click OK.

Now you need to repeat the last step but changing the ports to 5060, 1503, 3389, 6891, 6892, 6893, 6894, 6895, 6896, 6897, 6898, 6899, 6900. Yes, 14 (including t... Read more

We are trying to come up with a solution which will enable users to access exchange without having to give them full access to the internet. We have finally gotten a list of IP's from Microsoft that we need to allow connection to, but we cannot seem to find a way that we can enable this. I saw a way to use this using IE, but most of our computers are running wither Firefox or Chrome. If we cannot figure this out we will be looking at hardware solutions, but we would prefer to see if we could do this via group policy or something else first.

I need some expertise "know how" in this matter. I have an office in location A and another office in location B.
A is protected by Firewall-1 Checkpoint and running Exchange 5.5 mail system. Point B is using Proxy Server 1.1 and Exchange 5.5.
Office A is the HQ and Office B is the branch. I need to sync the Exchange for these 2 offices. How do I go about doing it?
I intend to use only VPN remote client access to login users from Location B to Location A. By doing so, I dun think I sync my Exchange on both end but at least I can control those those login in via VPN.
Ideas/advices much appreciated.

I've tried resetting the router, rebooting the computer etc. but that doesn't seem to work.
I've also ran malware bytes but that didnt fix the problem either.

My setup is well wired up, no question there. I'm (trying to)install Proxy Server 2.0 on NT4 Server (to which I added service pack 4 & Option Pack 4). The server has two NIC's, one to the LAN and one to the WAN. The hardware (router, hub, cables) works, that's for sure. I got my DNS addresses all written out, both NIC's configured, no WINS server, backlog of addresses entered from to 254... The Internet connection does work, the DHCP is in the router, the NIC on the inside gets its IP adress no problem upon booting, the other one I assigned one to it... I don't get it, and this is just not getting done.
Thank you

A:Proxy server can't access internet

What is the error message when you try to ping a site on the WAN? Are the DNS servers internal or external, and, if external, can you ping them by numeric address? Can you run a traceroute anywhere? Can you ping the addie of the NIC-WAN card? It sounds like you may well have tried these, but it certainly helps for us to know what you have and haven't done so we can help ya. Let us know!

I appear to be the victim of some piece of malware or virus that has added a proxy server setting that I am unable to get rid of. The main symptoms are that I am unable to change my proxy server settings in Windows 10. It appears to use this setting http=;. The result of this is that I am unable to do searches in the omnibar of Google Chrome (just takes me to a blank page) and I can't visit certain webpages, also if I am able to do a Google search the "Search Tools" button is missing.
I looked around on the internet and have tried a few fixes, I've deleted or changed the registry entries mentioned in Philip Turner's reply here: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/446898-can-t-disable-proxy-in-ie10?page=1
I also changed the entry mentioned here: https://fixedit.itxpress.biz/2014/10/08/unable-to-disable-windows-proxy-setting/
Making these changes allowed me to change the proxy server settings and once I change "Automatically detect settings" to on and "Use a a proxy server" to off then the issue is fixed and everything behaves normally. 
The problem is, once I restart my computer the settings revert back and are again unable to be changed unless I delete/change all the above registry entries again. I'm pretty sure that whatever did this is still on my computer somewhere and I need some help finding and eliminating it. Either that, or there is still some hidden registry entry that I am unable to find.

Hello! I am my company's Network Administrator, but I am not very familiar with Proxy-Server (Microsoft, V1.1) which we use as a "firewall". I've been fooling around with it a bit, but here is all I want to do:
I (the admin) would like full Internet Access. We don't block sites or IP's, but I can't connect to things like (here's an example) http://www.exite.com/games )
I can connect, but when the java applet attempts to load, it says it cannot connect.

Same for applications like Napster, or other programs like that where you have to get a connection to the internet to run it.

(Now, don't think I sit around playing games at work and downloading stuff- I need to do some on-line classes for my accounting software and the same thing keeps happening, but I thought I would use a familiar example or two.)

I am using Microsoft Proxy Server V 1.1 on an NT server and a Windows 98 client machine. I connect through a proxy server setting (company name, port 80). I am using a cable modem, which is run directly into the server.
I tried going into the security settings and granting myself full permission, but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas??

I would like to ask the community of these Forums for help to set my Desktop computer running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit to access chat programs that I have dowloaded from the Web and have installed on my PC.
My browser is Firefox 3.6.9 but i am unsure if the browser is involved in this.

Anyways, I do get in my e-mail a fresh daily list of free proxies to use to connect to the web, so given that I first have to open the program from icons that i already have on my Desktop ...
does anyone know how to set things so when I open them they would show -to anyone who wants to monitor(chat users and server owners on the other end)- the IP, geographic location and/or name of Internet Service Provider of the Proxy address itself and not MY OWN IP, location and ISP (as it happens now without the use of a proxy)?

Should anyone would like to take a peek at those 3 chat places before responding they are:

A. Halsoft Chat: www.vpchat.com

B. Yak Chat: www.yackity-yak.com/

I have programs that want to access the internet...and I want to route them through my GhostSurf proxy or at least any proxy so that my IP is hidden...is this possible, and if so, how? I know that GhostSurf automatically hides IE's IP and I can easily configure it to handle Firefox...but I have no idea how to anonymize my program internet access! (I think the programs that I want to anonymize are all accessing either DNS or HTTP addresses...what that ultimately means and how it pertains to my problem...I don't really know...

Hi brhanse,

Can you give us the make and model of the router. Also, do each of the computers connect directly via a cable to the back of the router; (example, there are 4 ports on the back of the router and each port has it's own cable leading to each computer) or, does the router connect to a switch and the other computers connect to the router through the switch?

Has this suddenly happened or have their been intermittent issues with connectivity recently?

This is a spoofing vulnerability that exists in the affected products and that could enable an attacker to spoof trusted Internet content. Users could believe they are accessing trusted Internet content when in reality they are accessing malicious Internet content, for example a malicious Web site. However, an attacker would first have to persuade a user to visit the attacker’s site to attempt to exploit this vulnerability.
Affected Software:

• Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0 Service Pack 1
• Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Service Pack 1 and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Service Pack 2

Note The following software programs include Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 (ISA Server 2000). Customers using these software programs should install the provided ISA Server 2000 security update.

• Microsoft Small Business Server 2000

• Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 Premium Edition

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.
Has anyone come across this issue?

I did a complete system restore and still unable to download anything or even at this point update my virus software that is out of date due to the system restore.
Now after system restore it is showing that I have two versions of Vista running on my computer. Any ideas?

Sounds like it's time to perform a factory recovery if possible.

Hello, I was wondering if there's a program out there that will allow only one execution to each file?

I have this game server, and I'm going to have it on several locations around the world, but it'll be synchronized, all the character / account files will be stored in one main server. However, to prevent fraud I would like the server program only to execute one account file at the time so that the person is unable to login to the same character on all the servers. Is there a program to allow that? I don't want to RESTRICT any programs, I just want the files not to be able to be executed if they're already executed as the program name would be the same for every server.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

i am just messing about experimenting on a few things at home and wondered if someone could give me some pointers on the folowing:
I have myself a win2k server that is connected to the internet using a cable modem connected using a ethernet net card.
I also have a 98 machine networked to the server using another ethernet net card in a workgroup
I want to use the server as a proxy server so i can access the internet from the 98 machine
i have tried a few diffrent things to get this working but usually end up losing all communication with the 98 pc
from what i can gather it involves setting up tings with DNS, and sharing the connection to the internet, but i am not getting to far at the mo.
can anyone point me in the right direction or better tell me how to do it?

The computer is running Windows XP Professional SP3. When I go into Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs, there are no options showing for "Remove" or "Change" program. I took this issue up in the Infection forum and tried to get it resolved there. However I couldn't fix the problem. After doing a registry backup, I performed tweak #337 in Kelly's Korner, as instructed, and then attempted a System File Checker "scannow" repair. The problem still exists. Anybody got any ideas?

A:Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs not allowing program removal

Caution is advised - at your own risk.As it involves a registry edit, backup up your registry first with a program such as ERUNT and you may also want to create a system restore point.See this link:Some applications in Add/Remove Programs list are missing Change and Remove buttons:http://www.winxptutor.com/arpbuttons.htmThis assumes that your system is not infected.

I am operating in Windows XP and switched from Office 2000 to Office 2003 about a year ago. I created a database for storing environmental data for my company near the end of 2005. I linked the tables in the database to worksheets in an excel file so that we could manipulate the numbers a little better, but have the convenience of the searchability of access. Everything worked fine until I switched over to 2003. When I went into my database it would not let me edit the data or enter new records. Since then, I've been having to logon to other computers in the office who still have Office 2000 to enter the info.

Well, two weeks ago all of the other computers in the office were switched over to Office 2003 and now, I can't get enter anything. I even recreated both the spreadsheet and the database and it still will not let me edit or add. Any ideas?

my friend was using her browser when a page popped up on her screen saying that she had a virus, and to call a number. She did call the number and of course they said she had a bad virus and wanted money. She said no but then they took over her computer and used the mouse. They Told her what her passwords were for places. She hung up on them BUT how did they get into her computer? She did no allow access

I am going to run a recovery on her computer. Are they getting into her computer through the adobe flash hack? Is running a recovery the best way to fix this problem? This is actually the 2nd friend this happened too. The hackers were in her computer without her allow remote access. I find this very scary.
