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.

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.

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.

Firewall And Sharing

I have a program that is unable to work while windows 7 firewall is enabled. I have tried restoring the firewall to default and then repeatably allowing the program access. I have tried the more advanced options and they still do not work. I have resorted to installing a third party software firewall and behold i have found out i cannot disable windows 7 firewall and disable network sharing and file sharing. This is super poor design. I do not want networking sharing or file sharing on at all. What am i supposed to do in this situation?

Cannot Enable Win 7 Firewall

I recently purchased a new hp laptop with windows 7 home premium. However, i cannot activate my firewall. When i go into my firewall settings from the control panel, it doesn't even allow me to click the 'turn windows firewall on or off' option to the left. Now, it stated in my firewall settings that "these settings are being managed by vendor application norton firewall provider".

So i thought perhaps my norton firewall was interfering with it, so i turned off its smart firewall. But i still can't turn on my windows firewall. In fact, i cannot click most of the options in my firewall settings at all (turn firewall on/off, restore defaults, change settings etc). The only thing i can click is the advanced settings and troubleshoot.

Firewall Access - Bittorrent

On my computer i have bittorrent and for the longest time it was working perfectly fine. I was able to download torrents quickly and easily but recently i haven't been able to download any at all. I get this message "error opening windows firewall: 0x80070005 access is denied". I never got it before this just randomly started happening. I am not the greatest with computers so i was wondering if anyone could provide a step by step process to solving this problem.

Some information that may be important: bittorrent is installed on my laptop and i use a wireless connection to the internet.

Firewall Blocking File Sharing

Came into the office today (two computers on the network) and one of the computers could not see the other on the network (it was not a problem the other way around). I went through some troubleshooting, and figured out it was the firewall on the one computer blocking access. The firewall is controlled by macafee virus protection. So, i turned off the firewall, and bingo, i can now see each computer from both directions. The problem is now i don't have any firewall protection. Any reason the settings on the firewall would have been different today than they were yesterday, and how do i turn the firewall back on while allowing the file sharing to continue on as before over the network?

A Program Or Firewall Is Not Compatible With This Version Of Windows

I am having a reoccurring windows security alert and  issue with my windows 7 home premium edition.
I have a dell studio1737 laptop. I get a windows security alert warning stating "a program or firewall is not compatible with this version of windows"

Name: microsoft console based script host
Publisher: microsoft corp
Path: c:windowssystem32cscript.exe

I also run norton internet security on my laptop. I am also quite careful about my online activities so i am pretty confident it is not a malware issue. But i could also be wrong.
I have contacted norton support and after removing and reinstalling norton is 2010 a couple of times. They advised me to contact microsoft support for assistance because they could not rectify the issue i am having.

Dell support have not been much help either (nothing new there). I have searched extensively for a solution and an answer but i have unfortunately not found anything that has helped me. Can anybody here help me with this issue. Because i am not filled with confidence at the moment about my laptops security? Also if anybody could give me any information about what cscript.exe is and why it is causing these problems.

Disable Windows Firewall " Stealth Mode "

Is there any way to disable "stealth mode" on the windows 7 firewall? I want windows to send icmp unreachable packets. According to this technet article, stealth mode is enabled by default, but there is no information on how to disable it. It was possible to control this on xp. Allow meto pre-answer the obvious questions about my question.

(1) i've already googled it. I found other people asking the same question, but no answers.
(2) i really do want to disable stealth mode. With all due respect, i'm not asking for advice or opinions on the wisdom of my choice.

1815dn Scanner Not Working

We have installed windows 7 pro to our dell latitude d820
Processor:  intel t2300 1. 66ghz
Ram:  1gb
32-bit os

We have an all-in-one printer - 1815dn - that we have used before the os upgrade. Previously, we used this printer as our network scanner. Since the os upgrade, the printer will not scan over the network, nor if we connect the laptop directly to it. Its as if the scanning option/software doesn't exist, or at least is not recognized at all by win 7. Anyone know of a patch/upgrade/work around to get the scanner back as a network scanner?

Dell 1815dn Scanner Problem

I had windows xpand the dell network scan program on my laptop, and had no problems. My company then installed windows 7 on my laptop, and the dell network scan program back on.

I've gone and searched for updates, fixes/patches, but nothing.

Canon Mf4150 Scanner Functions Not Working

Windows 7 does not "see" the scanner functions on my canon mf4150 multi-function printer/scanner/fax. I've already updated drivers on the new pc. Checked services are enabled. Verified all functions of the canon mf 4150 are working properly using my old pc with the same software (paperport 12. 0). Checked registry entries for latent issues. There must be a resource conflict somewhere, but i cannot find it. Anyone have useful suggestions?

Minolta Film Scsi Scanner Problem

I have a minolta film scsi scanner, dimage scan dual, and had it working in xp. The only way i could get it working in xp was to load the program as admin/safe mode. Do you have any suggestions as to how i should try and install this in windows 7? Minolta has not supported photographic products in many years. When i first installed it in xp it didn't work. Found a note which informed me that the only way to get it working in xp was in admin (safe) mode.

It was successful. Now i would like to try it on 7 but with the xp installation steps, might there be a suggestion as ti installing it on 7?

Canoscan D2400u Canon Scanner Does Not Support

I cannot get my trusted old scanner to work. (Canoscan d2400u), no updated drivers at canon's website and 'vuescan' does not support either. Would the ultimates virtual xp allow the old drivers to operate my scanner (given that it only responds to 32 bit xp) or do i have to throw away a perfectly good piece of machinery? Is windows 7 going to cause an upsurge in landfill with all this redundant hardware?
