Uac Blocks Startup Of Zonealarm Extreme Security


I am running as administrator. When i set uac to default it prevents zone alarm extreme security from running at startup. With the help of zone labs i have the latest clean install of zrm extreme security. If i run zone alarm after startup the private browser function and zone alarm toolbar in ie8 do not run and the zone alarm mail function is also inhibited.

I also found a problem running geniesoft backup software that should run on a schedule. Uac asked for approval to run geniesoft which prevents unattended backups. How can i get programs to run at startup? I see that was an issue with vista but it is still causing me a headache.

Line In Monitor Extreme Latency

On all my previous windows installation (windows 2000 home/pro, windows xp home/pro), i have been able to plug in a guitar into line-in and monitor is without latency through the speakers. This means playing and hearing is in real-time.

In windows 7, there's a latency of 180+ms. On the same hardware, i used xp and it didn't cause issues. I upgraded to windows 7 and latency is thru the roof. I have used microsoft provided drivers from win install and vendor provided drivers that came with mobo. No change.

Is this something to be deal with in windows 7 or am i overlooking some setting? I have been doing this since almost 2004 without issues on previous version. Does the windows sound management not provide a direct fast monitor signal?

Firewall Blocks Scanner

Spend several minutes with brother (model mfc-490cw). It's a 3 in 1. It is set perfectly. My computer is shown on the list were to send the scan to, but the connection doesn't go through. Able to scan from my computer to printer. If i disabled firewall, works. Try to add brother programs, don't find the right to add obviously (and the tech either). Was working just fine with vista! For now, only have config. Problems with windows 7. I don't think that removing my firewalls is the right answer.

Update Blocks Wifi Connection

So i bought a brand new computer with windows 7, bought a new wireless adapter (netgear wna1000) downloaded the newest available windows 7 compatible drives from a friends computer and hey i can connect. I turn my computer off after updating windows and now my wireless connection has "limited connectivity" which means that i can't use my network. The only answer i've found to this on my own and after countless hours on the phone with netgear and geek squad is to run a system restore back before the updates are installed and never turn off my computer. I know this isn't good for it. Does anyone have any solutions? Oh i'm running on a wep connection.

Activex Control Blocks Photo Upload To Email

I get the following error message when trying to upload photos from my pc to a hotmail email: "internet explorer has blocked this site from using an activex control in an unsafe manner. As a result, this page may not display correctly. "The error message does not give me an option to ignore the activex control. I have a hotmail account, use vista home and ie-8. I have checked and installed all the latest windows and microsoft updates. I had no problems on 31 july and have not added hardware or software since then, apart from the windows updates. Any ideas why this is happening? I have just tried uploading a photo as an attachment and that worked fine, but am still unable to use the insert photos function.

Uac / Admin Problem

I was setting up my mothers laptop because she ones again got a virus on it. So i was putting parental controls so she couldn't use is as an admin. I mad her a standard user i thought i'd be nice and hide the admin acct. By disabling the administrator via cmd.exe "net user administrator /active:no". Now i want to install some additional programs and i cannot enable the administrator login because the uac settings do not allow me to turn the admin on.

In the command prompt, it says "type administrator password and then click yes. " But when i type the password the "yes" button remains gray and i cannot click it, so it does not allow me to login as admin, so i'm stuck only able to login as a user, but not the admin. I know my admin password buti still can't log in as the admin.

Win7 Won't Allow Access To Uac

Brand new lenovo thinkpad running win7pro. I cannot access user account control. I've tried several different methods. For instance: control panel>system and security>action center then i click choose your uac level and nothing happens. Or

Control panel>system and security > click change user account control settings and nothing happens. Action center tells me uac is turned off, but i am unable to to change ownership settings on anything, and when attempting to install new software i get you lack permission or access denied messages.

I've tried various work around, running as administrator has no effect, effects to make registry changes result in access denied messages, attempts to enable the pre-installed administrator user fail with access denied messages. I've got 6 pounds of useless plastic that other people would call a brand new laptop.

User Account Control (uac) Problem

I'm running windows 7 64 bit. I had a problem with ram where i thought it was a system problem and my system kept rebooting because of the "blue screen of death". So i tried booting in safe mode and restor to previous version. This all coincided with the installation of updates, ram upgrade and webcam installation. Before troubleshooting i tried to do a repair thinking it was an o/s issue but later found out it was a defective dimm.

The defective dimm is removed and the system is running. However ever since the system restore, the uninstallation of the webcam and the removal of the dimm i get "the data is invalid" whenever i try to install anything. If i go into control panel>user accounts and family safety>user accounts anything with the little "administrator icon" wont run. If i try to run "regedit32.exe" i get "the data is invalid" error as well. I can go into cmd but if i run as administrator i get the same "the data is invalid error".

Is there a way to fix this without doing a clean install?

Windows Security Versus Norton Security

I have just taken for granted that i need a separate security company, because every time i purchase a computer, "norton" came with the included software. My question is; is windows defender and ms security sufficient security for a home computer?

Win 7 Startup

I'm running a dell e521 which started life with vista. I upgraded months ago to windows 7. The upgrade went quite smooth. This past week i was performing a system restore to a previous date when during the process the computer rebooted which is normal. I got the dell logo, then the windows 7 start-up screen with the four little revolving lights. Then the computer progressed to the black screen with the cursor in the center and froze at that screen. I have been unable to get past this screen since. I tried rebooting with the windows 7 repair disc but with no success.

I have since bought and installed a new hard-drive and was able to extract most but not all of my files from my external hard-drive. I would like to know if there is a solution to fixing my old drive so that i can retrieve all of my data and perhaps use it as a second drive in my computer. Note; when this problem hard-drive is connected i can't get past this black screen so i cannot access my computer to find a fix.

Unmute On Startup

I purchased my laptop with vista on it, with an upgrade to 7 home premium when it was released. I've since installed, but now the system automatically turns the sound on at startup. It never had a problem with vista, and i didn't mind that the very first time i booted into 7

This is particularly annoying when i'm in class and someone sends me a message and the whole class think's i'm talking away. I've had more dirty looks from instructors in the past few months than i can remember.

I know i can go through and disable all the sounds, and switch between sound schemes, but i would rather not bother going through that path 2-3 times a day. How do i get my sound settings to stay where i put them?

No Startup Folder

Recently, i put a program in the startup folder in

C:usersadminappdataroamingmicrosoftwindowsstart menuprogramsstartup

I later decided that i didn't want the program to startup every time i log on, but instead of deleting the program i accidentally deleted the startup folder instead. The folder is no longer in the recycling bin. Does anyone have any idea of how to replace my startup folder because i would really like to put some programs in there.

I've tried using task scheduler, but didn't find it to be very effective. What i really need is a new startup folder.

Freezes On Startup

I have a computer that is one day old and will not start up (windows 7 home premium 64 bit). It will freeze at "windows starting. " It will freeze under safe mode at the classpnp.sys file. I have attempted to boot from a recovery dvd and it will not not not boot from it and freeze, and the bios settings are set to boot from the optical drive 1st. It will freeze when i try to enter the repair console.

I am out of ideas as to what to do, and i can find no answers online.

The comlete story is as follows: i was installing various programs fine (office, symantec, turbotax 04-09, etc). After installing adobe photoshop, the os "freaked out. "  I have no other way to describe it. Various components of the screen starting flickering (not the entire screen, but certain parts of programs). The touchpad became unresponsive, jerky, and seemed to click on its own. The computer began a shutdown sequence - because updates had queued, those began installing once the os logged off. Upon power on, i made it to the welcome screen. Each time, the touchpad was unresponsive, and the keyboard seemed to have its own inputs, because it would freeze and lock me out of the system.

After a few cold shutdowns, the touchpad and keyboard stopped acting weird (i know this sounds crazy, but i swear its true), and i was able to log in. I created the recovery dvds using the vaio console, uninstalled photoshop, and did a system restore to before the photoshop installation. The computer shut down, but has never been able to completely boot into the windows welcome screen.

Startup Faliure

On june 23, 2010, my computer received an auto-update from microsoft. I believe that that my computer restarted once after the update, but since then, it fails to start up at all. The computer does not usually get as far as providing me with the repair screen options, but occasionally does. Those efforts were unsuccessful. I have even tried making the repair using the os software disc. However, that was not successful. Usually, i end up with a completely black screen. Dditionally, i tried to restore the computer to three prior periods, but each attempt has failed. I received the following information after the failed repair efforts:

Problem event name: startup repair offline problem signature 01: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 problem signature 02: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 problem signature 03: unknown problem signature 04: 21201010 problem signature 05: auto failure problem signature 06: 4 problem signature 07: bad patch os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1 local id: 1033

I'm guessing that i got dinged in the update that was downloaded. Regardless, i just want to get my computer back up and working. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Yes, i have disconnected all of the external devices and still have made no progress with this problem.

How To Get A Program Run On Startup?

Win 7 home premium i'd like to get a temperature utility program such as realtemp or core temp running on startup.core temp has a setting to have it run on startup, but it doesn't. (Neither of these are installed programs, but standalone .exe files that i run with a shortcut. )I've tried placing a short cut for either program into the startup folder but still have to start either one up manually. If i run system configuration, with either shortcut in the startup folder, it shows it being set for running on startup, but it doesn't run. http://moz.execulink.net/~jspirko/temp/system_config.jpg

Taskbar Freeze At Startup

I had tried several times now, but the same happend. When i upgraded first time from xp to win 7 everything went ok until a few days later. Then started the taskbar to freeze, i could not click any items in the taskbar etc. Until i start the task manager by pressing #ctrl-alt-del" when i had dne that the task bar can be used again !I had tried to run 5-6 different virus scanners, i have avg installed, nothing from any of them, i thought in the beginning it could be a problem with the csrss.exe file as in the task-manger can i not see the properties, it not come up at all, also it not show who user ise the csrss.exe, my notebook does that !

I had re-installed the win 7 2 times again, and now it seems like the taskbar freeze at sratup, so when had had started the task-manager 1 time it works all ok ! That is quite strange !Any have a brilliant idea about what is wrong ! My computer is an acer stationary, 2 gb ram. Intel core duo e4500 2. 2 ghz. Windows / 32 bit.

Taskbar Freezing After Startup

When windows starts the taskbar is frozen, and i cannot click on anything. All icons on the desktop are not affected and can be clicked. When i click ctrl+alt+del, then cancel it, it goes back to normal and works fine.

I was on windows vista when this was happening. Once a installed windows 7, with an otherwise empty computer, it is still happening. As there is nothing else on my pc now, i presume it is microsoft related, or hardware.

I have tested the memory and its fine. I have checked the temperatures and there fine. The bios is upto date. There are no virus's or malware present.

I have now ran out of ideas, and for the life of me cannot work it out

I have checked on google, and used many tech forums to no avail?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?

Startup Programs Not Starting

Have just moved a few pc's at home to windows 7 (one ultimate and the others home premium) and am having problems with startup programs not starting. The programs are all in msconfig as startup items but when i log in they don't start. All of the users are administrators but the only way to get them to start is via the start menu. When i do start them it comes up with the warning about do you want the following program make changes to your computer. Is there anyway to make these programs run at startup?

Black Screen At Startup

Bsod? With cursor? Updated my pc to windows 7 after vista gave me the true bsod a long time ago. I couldn't make a connection to my network's router. I restarted my pc using start->shut down when i pressed the power button, startup was same as usual. Until it got stuck on the black screen with cursor. Unable to start in safe mode. F8 will not do anything. Crtl-alt-del shuts my pc down instantly. I'd tell you the specifics of my pc if i thought that would be helpful but i've been running windows 7 since it came out with no problems. It's been over a week at least since i've downloaded anything.

Quicktime Error On Startup

Machine = dell studio running 64 bit windows vista with sp 2. I installed the latest version of quicktime. There was an error at the end of the install, but no error message beyond "windows installer has stopped. " Nothing specific. When i try to run quicktime, i get the "please install apple application support' error. I did some research and found that it was suggested that i re-register the vbscript.dll. I tried this, but got an error code = 0x80004004 message saying the call to the registration server failed. I don't know if this has anything to do with the original problem.

Startup Issue With Upgrades

I purchased a new computer a couple of months ago and have had on-going problems when turning the system on. Windows 7(64bit) was loaded by the supplier. To start with start up repair would loop two ot three times and then be unable to fix the problem, after re-loading and up grading using the disc, i now have the problem that start up repair fixes the problem and all appears ok. On turning off the system, there are always 14 upgrades. Leave the computer for several hours and turn on, start up repair fixes the problem. Shut down and there are 14 upgrades again and so on.

Error Message Upon Startup

I'm not certain this is the forum i should be in but if i am in the wrong place, please someone redirect me to the correct place okay ?! Upon start up when i turn on, boot up or whatever you wanna call it, i always receive this error message and i have done everything i can think of to get rid of it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled programs that i thought that particular .dll file
Came with and on and on but nothing has worked.

Error message: the program can't start because msvcr71.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix the problem.

I have searched and brought all of the crazies out of the woodwork with their "magical fixes" if you install this registry scan and that registry scan but i have enough smarts to know that is all they do is scan, none of them actually fix the issue.

Anyway, is there a simple fix for this. I ran a system restore but my restore points don't go back far enough and the error message box is still there! Lost

System Freezes During Startup

After behaving normally for two weeks or more, my computer (using retail copy of win 7 professional 32 bit system) will not start up.

It freezes during the "microsoft starting" phase. The 4-color logo never gets formed up and that's it. I have tried all or most of the config and reboot options but nothing happens i always get stuck at the same place. When i use the option that shows the 32 bit system drivers getting loaded it never gets past . Disk.sys or the next one . Snp.sys. And that screen ends with "please wait".

There were some downloads/updates installed on last good day (thursday 1/21/2010). I might have downloaded firefox that day as well. One more thing i set up a (wireless) network but i only have one win 7 machine so i don't think it will do anything for me.

Upon the next start-up two days later - i experienced this trouble that will not go away. I do not have a boot-up disk but when i try to start with the original dvd media the same thing happens - it appears to read the disk then the "microsoft starting" begins and ends just as already described.

Freezes On Startup Logo

I have windows7 home premium and am doing a clean install. The installation completes, but when windows 7 starts up for the first time, it freezes at the "starting windows" after the little balls have come together to make the windows logo. Keyboard strokes and mouse movements do not do anything, and i have no choice but to restart the computer by physically pressing and holding the power button. Windows recovery and repair doesn't fix it. I have a gigabyte ga-h55m-ud2h motherboard, intel i3-530 cpu, and 4gb memory, the boot drive is a sataii western digital drive. I removed 2gb of memory and tried the install again with the same result. What now?

Issue With Startup And Repair

So i have windows 7 on an alienware. It's been running great, but i recently started up my system and it was stuck at the screen that has the windows logo and says "starting". I turned off my system and ran the repair program. It eventually fixed the issue and started up, but now the system loads up about 5 times as long as before. It use to take under a minute easily and now about 5 but it does start up. I've run my anti-virus and no virus detected, i cleaned up the disk, and i turn off my system properly. Is there anyway to fix my start up situation?
