    User account control and Internet Explorer

    I have now been using Vista as the sole user (therefore administrator) on my
    PC.
    When the user account control is on, I cannot open Internet Explorer: a
    message pops up which means: "Internet Explorer does not work anymore,
    Windows is searching a resolution"
    When I turn off the user account control, I work with Internet Explorer
    without problem … but have permanent security alert reminder about
    desactivated user control.

    It's likely that you have an add-on in Internet Explorer that is causing
    this.

    Try running IE without any add-ons. To do this, follow these steps.

    Right click an empty spot on the Desktop and select New/Shortcut from the
    menu.


    In the "Type the location of the item" line place the following:

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

    (Including the quotes and space)

    Click Next, Click Finish.

    Double click this shortcut to start IE. You will see a page about starting
    IE with add-ons disabled. Click the Home Page icon and then do some
    navigating to make sure it works.

    Let me know what you find.

    Ronnie,

    Thanks a lot for your proposed resolution.
    Unfortunately, it does not fix the problem, I receive the same message:
    "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close
    and notify you if a solution is available."

    a) Referring to thread posted 2/3/2007 in Internet Explorer Discussion
    Group, "IE7 errors with Vista", I implemented resolution as described
    2/4/2007 by Frank Saunders (MS-MVP) : my conclusion is that I (apparently)
    have no spy-ware (Lavasoft Ad-aware), no virus (Norton), no registry error
    (Uniblue registry booster2).
    b) Because IE works fine when I deactivate users account control, I believe
    I have no conflict with other installed softwares (OmniPage ?).

    Referring to KB 936215, I read (in French re translated in English) that
    Receiving an error message may be due to
    - Conflict with other software (I don't believe).
    - Damaged user account
    - Viruses, spywares , …(I don't believe).
    - Config / compatibility problems
    I created a test user (standard) and received the same problem message.

    Additional info, I use Norton 360 without their additional anti spam
    etc…functionalities

    You might want to check for the exact error that is occuring.

    Go to Start and type: eventvwr.exe in the search box. Click the Event
    Viewer to open.

    In the left pane, click on Custom Views/Administrative Events. Look for any
    red icon error messages there that coincide with the date/time that the
    error last occured. If you find any, double click the error and at the
    bottom of the dialog box, click the Copy Button. Paste the results in a
    reply to this message.

    Re: User account control and Internet Explorer

    Ronnie-

    I am new to Vista and I am running in to a similar, but different problem.
    I am getting a UAC messgae "an unidentified program wants access to your
    computer" for Internet Explorer. I tried loading with -extoff. No such
    message.

    Seems if it is activex or something like that it is normal browsing of the
    internet. If everything is actually OK is there a way to tell Vista to omit
    this warning?

    You need to identify what program/activex control or other add-on is causing
    the UACmessage to appear. This could be a malicious program that could harm
    your computer.

    What that message is trying to tell you is that "A program is trying to get
    complete and unrestricted access to your entire computer".

    First, determine what steps you are taking that makes that UAC prompt
    appear. Next, go to Tools/Manage add-ons/Enable or disable add-ons.

    Near the top of that dialog is a drop down menu that gives you different
    views of the add-ons. Using these different views, disable a block of the
    add-ons and then recreate the steps that make the UAC message appear. If the
    message does not appear, re-enable each of the add-ons in that block,
    one-at-a-time, checking to see if the message appears after enabling each
    one. When the message appears, you have identified the culprit.

    You can then go to the website of the maker of that add-on and make sure it
    is legitimate. If it turns out to be OK, check that website for an updated
    version of the add-on for Vista/IE7.

    Re: User account control and Internet Explorer

    Now that is a good explanation and use for the hated UACs. I understand
    better why they can be beneficial. I will give it a try.

    Thanks.

    Re: User account control and Internet Explorer

    Now for something completely different... I went and one-by-one disabled the
    add-ons. All, but Microsoft add-ons. Reason being I was short on time, I
    felt MS was probably NOT the culprit, and there were a bunch of them from MS.

    Still get the message. When i get time I will go ahead and disable the MS
    ones as well to see what is causing the prob.
