how to disable edit button in security tab Results

Sponsored Links:

I am having an intermittent problem with my network connection dropping out for no apparent reason.

When it drops, I still see the lights blinking on the NIC card, but cannot pass packets even to the router.

Windows does not report the connection or the cable as disconnected when this problem is occurring.

The problem will persist until I disconnect and reconnect the CAT-5e wire, or disable and re-enable the NIC.

As soon as I do one of those 2 things, connectivity immediately returns (and works for another hour or so).

I am running a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on an HP Pavilion.

All of the latest Windows updates and the latest firmware drivers are installed.

My ethernet connection is a wired Local Area Connection with a static IP address, gateway and DNS.

The IP address, gateway and DNS settings are accurate and work for several other computers here.

The Network Interface Card is a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (VEN_10EC / DEV_8136 / REV_05).

NIC Power Management, Energy Efficient Ethernet, and Link Down Power Saving are all turned off.

On the NIC, ARP/Large Send/IPv4,TCP,UDP Checksum/NS Offload, Flow Control, and are all on.

Receive Buffer Size on the NIC is 64Kb (512 buffers). Receive Side Scaling on. 128 Transmit Buffers.

Interrupt Moderation is turned on. Magic Packet features are turned off. Optimal Performance enabled.

NIC Speed and Duplex are set to 100mbps Full Duplex wherever possible (automatic was also tried).

802.1X authentication (EAP or PEAP) is disabled. Auto connection logic is disabled.

Connection routes through two switches into a Belkin router; other devices on same networks unaffected.

Much of my data is stored on a Network Attached Storage device, with UNC shares mapped to drive letters.

Other Windows, Mac and Linux devices connected to the same NAS device have no problems staying connected.

When the issue occurs, I can't ping the gateway, do DNS lookups or pass any packets as far as I can tell.

I have tried swapping out the CAT-5e cables for other cables and even ran them through a cable tester.

Network fixes I have attempted from the OS level so far include:

~ Switching the dynamic port range to start at 10,000 and run for approximately 54,000 ports
~ Systematically reviewing every running service to make certain that only the essential ones are on
~ Disabling all NIC stacks except Client for Microsoft Networks, IPv4, File and Printer Sharing and Comodo
~ Attempted connections with Comodo turned completely off and its NIC driver disabled
~ Attempted rolling back the RealTek driver to an earlier one from the same family and device line

Using netsh I have tried the following settings:

~ netsh winsock reset catalog
~ netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
~ netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
~ netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
~ netsh int tcp set global chimney=automatic
~ netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
~ netsh int tcp set global congestionprovider=ctcp
~ netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=disabled
~ netsh int tcp set global timestamps=disabled
~ netsh int tcp set global netdma=enabled
~ netsh int tcp set global dca=enabled

I have ruled out any malware, spyware, virus or trojan horse as a possibility after extensive scans with:

~ MalwareBytes Anti-malware (subsequently updated to latest DB)
~ Kaspersky TDSSKiller
~ Microsoft Antimalware Security Essentials
~ Avira AntiVir
~ RootkitRevealer
~ Sophos SAR 15 SFX
~ PrevX v3.0 CSI Free Edition

All virus definitions and malware databases were successfully updated prior to these scans.

Software I am currently running on this PC (and that have not posed a problem for me in the past) includes:

~ Privoxy
~ Polipo
~ I2P
~ Comodo Internet Security / Comodo Firewall / Comodo Dragon
~ Avira Antivir
~ Microsoft Antimalware Security Essentials
~ PeerBlock
~ uTorrent
~ Bitcoin
~ DAEMON Tools Pro
~ Tor with Vidalia
~ Steam
~ Skype
~ Pidgin
~ ooVoo

~ Mozilla Firefox
~ PowerISO
~ Evernote
~ Calibre
~ GoToManage Professional
~ Cisco VPN Service
~ SmartFTP Client
~ KVIrc

When the connection is working, an ICMP test responds normally:

This problem only started happening a couple of days ago. I haven't rebooted in about three weeks.

If at all possible, I would like to resolve this issue WITHOUT a reboot, as that can take several hours.
(I have over 1000 suspended Google Chrome tabs & over 500 Comodo tabs; reloading them is a massive chore).

Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 is quite possibly the best overall system maintenance tool of the year. Having received 5 stars from CNET, they also receive a 10/10 full endorsement from BoostSpeed isn't just about making your computer fast: It's about making preventative maintenance manageable through one application. While the market calls for a typical system scan to attract buyers, that scan is entirely legitimate, and does correct serious registry problems in a way that far exceeds industry expectations. CCleaner, for example, can hardly hold a candle to this utility.

Looking closer at the System Advisor, we can determine whether or not the Internet connection can be automatically optimized. This is done with BoostSpeed through a manual or automatic setting in the Auslogics Internet Optimizer. Auslogics Registry Defrag will let you know that you can reduce registry access time and increase overall system performance by running this tool. This is a very delicate task that most freeware applications will not take on. Defragmenting the registry involves significant risk if there is a failure and that is why Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 comes with a Rescue Center, which can literally allow you to backup the changes that have been made within the program. The program will even automatically create these restore points before adjusting your system for perfect fine tuning.

If the Disk and Registry Maintenance options weren't enough, Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 comes with in-depth ways to determine and modify your System Status and Privacy. If that weren't enough, the System Tweaks area allows you to optimize your Windows services around how you use your computer. This can be so useful in a work environment, as most system services continue running unabated, even when they will never be used!

Control over startup items and installed software has never been easier. Needless duplicate files found on a system can be deleted and disks can be explored to discover what is eating up all of that storage space. The System tweaks area is where Auslogics BoostSpeed really shines. It contains management options for the User Interface, Start Menu, Taskbar, Windows Explorer, System Security, Startup and Shutdown, System, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Office, and numerous additional Software Tweaks.

"Hi, I’m Jessica Dolcourt from CNET Download and this is a first look at Auslogics BoostSpeed. This is a top rated program that attempts to defrag, tweak, and otherwise optimize the computer where its most likely to get bogged down. Looking at the clean launch interface, you might never guess that there are 18 tools bundled into one app. The main pane is dominated by shortcuts for testing the health of the system. One Button Checkup will scan for issues and attempt to fix them. For instance, Disk Cleaner’s job is to find and remove junk files. With most scans you run, you’ll have the opportunity to take a closer look at the files, and to back them up before you change anything. Since the goal of the program is to optimize performance, BoostSpeed often frames problems in terms of how much space you would free if you deleted the loose files. On the left, the system tools are organized by activity: Computer, Cleanup, Optimization, Privacy, Settings, and so on. When you click the task category, you’ll see the available tools and a brief description of what they do. Clicking the tools launches it in a separate window, so that you can return to this main interface at any time. Most tools are easy to work their way around, and most changes can be undone in Auslogics Rescue Center, which you can get to from individual tool interfaces or from the settings on the BoostSpeed panel interface. In the Rescue Center, you’ll see a list of the changes you’ve made. You’ll be able to see full details for each entry and view archive backups as well. Which system files BoostSpeed will back up, and which it will leave alone, are things you can specify in the program settings, under the tab that says Rescue Center. We’re fans of Auslogics BoostSpeed for its comprehensive system maintenance and nicely packaged interface. Some of the app’s component parts are offered as stand-alone freeware products, such as the Disk Defrag…" - Courtesy CNET Review of Auslogics BoostSpeed

It is quite probable that Auslogics BoostSpeed is the best program on the market for system repair and optimization EVER. Even if you don't know how to use the options listed above, that is why this program is great. It really DOES it for you. It really does repair your registry, with money behind it that went into big time research and development.

Their previous freeware products have been used regularly by IT professionals, but this product includes absolutely everything. There is nothing missing in this program, and updates are absolutely frequent. It is the one application I would recommend to every member of without hesitation. Even if you do not know what these settings mean, this program will optimize and repair your system without any doubt. Today, there are so many programs that "claim" to do this and do that. When we saw Auslogics offering a commercial solution I had to start offering it on my website after I saw what it could do. I had to make a video about it. I had to find a way to provide a discount to members.

I have recommended it to my mother, my grandparents, and I will bring it up to a client I am currently working with tomorrow who is asking for Windows XP. This is the program that you need to automatically manage your system and keep it up-to-date, speedy, and performing in top condition.

Windows 7 Forums Rating: 10/10 Stars

Don't take my word for it. CNET gave them 5/5 stars too!

With the error message on the memory problem, I right-clicked My Computer,
went to Properties, Advanced tab, clicked the Settings button under the Start
up and Recovery section, and clicked the Edit button under the System startup
section, and Under [operating systems] replace the parameter /NoExecute=xxxxx
with just /Execute. Fixed it perfectly. Right click and DiVx work now. You
can try that, but back up the file first so if something else goes wrong you
don't have to re-install Windows. Good luck.

Was running XP Pro with all the latest updates, on a Pentium 4 M, 2.0 gHz,
768 MB RAM. As I wasn't seeing SP2 on the Windows Update site, I downloaded
the Full SP2 pack (for IT Professionals). (As I have two computers, I
figured that way I wouldn't have to download it twice through Windows Update
either.) (Glad I have two computers. I'm writing now through the other one,
that didn't have SP2 installed. I cannot do anything now with the SP2
computer.) (With my dial-up connection, took a long time to download! One
full night and part of another.

The SP2 installation didn't give me any choices, no customization. On
executing the file, it went through to the end of the process, until the one
choice "do you want to re-boot now"?

First of all, a couple of minor gripes. An icon for Windows Media Player is
put in the Quick Launch bar and the Start Menu, without having consulted me.
I don't want an icon for it in the QL bar. I already have it in the Start
Menu, in a folder where I want it, I don't wish to have another icon for it.
Why is that done without asking the user?

The "Security Center" is also annoying. I don't mind it popping up at the
beginning, asking for your preferences. But that it later keeps popping up
FIX IT", because I disabled "Automatic Updates" (I frequently manually
update), and because it doesn't recognize my virus scanner. (A good one,
Trend Micro, and I frequently update the virus signatures.)

I right-clicked on the Quick Launch icon for WMP, so that I could choose
delete, and delete the unwanted intruder in my QL bar. Well, rather than
seeing the context menu, I saw an hourglass, got an error message that said:


Explorer.exe application error

The instruction of 0x02464156 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory
could not be written. (OK to terminate, Cancel to Debug)
Well, whether I clicked on OK or Cancel, I then had to wait a very long time
with an hourglass, before I could do anything with the mouse again, before I
could try anything with the computer again. I went to the folder where the
Quick Launch shortcuts are kept. (They sure try to hide that--in the
"Internet Explorer" folder in Application Data". Why is it there? The Quick
Launch bar has nothing to do with IE.) I highlighted the WMP icon, and
pressed the delete key. Same result, same error message.

I was beginning to think it was a ploy by Microsoft to prevent anyone from
deleting that WMP icon. But I discovered that I would get the same result on
trying to do almost anything in Windows Explorer, including deleting files
from the Temp folder, etc. I also sometimes got a Dr. Watson error message
after that, I forget the wording.

I went to Control Panel and disabled the new Windows Firewall, thinking that
might be the source of the problem. I went to "services" under
"Administrative Tools", and changed any service that looked new and
suspicious to me to "Manual", instead of "Automatic". This included
disabling the Security Center. But no matter what I tried, including
rebooting in between, nothing solved the described problem.

Booting up is also MUCH slower than before, like molasses, although I have
all startup programs currently disabled, and turned off many of the
automatic services.

I am on the verge of uninstalling XP2. If I do so, I certainly hope it
reconfigures my system to how it was before the install. Anyone done that

Before I do so, if anyone can give me advice on how to fix the problem I am
having with SP2, please let me know. Something to change in configuration
somehow. Some Windows tweak? Registry change?

To those who have been successful in installing SP2, do you really find any
improvement in it? In what ways? Only security, the Windows Firewall, etc.?
Other improvements?

I thought this product was in Beta a long time. You think they would have
thoroughly tested it, and worked out all the bugs. It sure didn't work well
for me so far. (Perhaps they want to fix it more before putting it on
Windows Update. But why put out the final release for "IT Professionals",
who might install it for a whole company, and then find out it screwed up
many of the company's computers?

What's up with this SP2?

If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
