Security :: How To Remove AVG Toolbar And Search

Apr 27, 2014

I hardly ever turn off my computer, I just put it to sleep. But once a week I turn it off and I did last night. When I turned it on this a.m. My Internet Explorer had AVG secure toolbar and search. I do not want it, I did not ask for it and I cannot remove it.

There should be a law against people putting stuff on your computer that you can't remove. I called Microsoft and they told me I had to pay to get rid of it. I will not, nor can I pay. I'm on Social Security. This is BS.

How to get rid of it. And where did my Microsoft Security Essentials go? Now it's missing from my computer

Toolbar Is Taking Over Internet?

Jan 27, 2013

Yesterday I had to download WinRAR to be able to open up some files and during the setup it only asked me once if I wanted to download a toolbar. I said no... but after I closed the setup and opened Internet Explorer, this "Internet Search" tool bar is here and I can't remove it! It's annoying because I can't click a link that opens up a new tab but instead of going to the link it goes to this "Internet Search".... I tried removing it from my Add-Ons but that didn't seem to work either.

Faded Address Toolbar Type?

Dec 12, 2013

I have searched all the keywords I can think of & I can't seem to find this problem addressed anywhere. The type on my address toolbar in the taskbar is very faded. Almost like it's grayed out, but not quite. I had it do this when I first installed Win 8.1, messed with some settings, but none that seemed to make any sense & it went away. Now it's back & I haven't done any setting changes!

IE11 - How To Disable Yahoo Toolbar

Aug 18, 2014

I accidently added the "Yahoo Toolbar" to my MIE-11.

I followed the standard instructions for removal.

I went to "Tools" then "Manage Add Ons".

The list of Add Ons appeared. When I click any other Add On in the list the "disable" button lights up.

When I click on "Yahoo Toolbar" the "disable" button does not light up so I am unable to get rid of the toolbar.

While on MIE11, I tried clicking on the "X" at the left side of the Yahoo Toolbar. Two choices appear :

(1) Hide Yahoo Toolbar temporarily
(2) Disable Yahoo Toolbar permanently.

I can Hide the toolbar but when I click on the option to permanently disable the toolbar I get a message that says "This action is restricted. Contact your system administrator".

Went to control panel uninstall software , couldn't find Yahoo Toolbar on the list !!!!

Creating Usable Program Toolbar WITH Sub Menus

Nov 22, 2013

Although I don't really miss the Classical start Menu any more It's quite useful to have a quick popup of some programs you use from time to time that don't always warrant being either pinned to the desktop or the taskbar also with SUB MENUS where appropriate -- All the tools like WIN-X editor that I've seen don't allow sub menuing or need fixed location toolbars or folders so here's an EASY way to do it - although it's manual so perhaps knowlegable people with some programming skills who know some scripting could easily automate the process.

An Easy way to do this actually exists in WINDOWS itself by the use of a bit of trickery and Custom toolbars -- you don't NEED any Registry hacks etc. Also you can save your created toolbar so you don't need to re-create it or go through the whole process again if you re-install Windows again either.

Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder - Windows 7 Forums Toolbars - How to Use in Windows 7 and Vista - Windows 7 Forums

1) Create a Folder anywhere on your system say on Vol D: and call it My Progs.

2) Create a Custom toolbar (right mouse click on bottom taskbar==>toolbars==>new toolbar

3) Select the folder location to the one you've made D:My Progs.

Now the trick is to POPULATE this folder correctly.

For Items that don't have any sub menus - for example on my system I'll take Winamp.You need to find the FILE LOCATION - easy way to do this is to search in the applications and then RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the .exe file and then SEND TO DESKTOP (create Short cut).

Now on the DESKTOP RIGHT MOUSE CLICK on the icon and choose COPY.

Go to your folder D:My Progs, chose Paste Short cut. Then delete the desktop icon if you don't want it on your desktop.

Now if you want SUB levels - create a Folder in the My Progs folder and then simply copy the procedure above.

You can do this for as many levels as you want.

For the TOP level items say Office Create a Folder Microsoft Office. As an example I've also added one Classic Games.

If the link is ALREADY a short cut then just past direct into the My Prog folder - you don't need to create a short cut first.

Finally re-arrange it so it appears on the screen at the most convenient place for you.

"Seemples" -- Bye Bye Startisback or any of those 3rd party apps -- I think my method is far more flexible and you can have ANY number of toolbars too.

I've shown two screen shots here with a small test toolbar - Office and Classic Games have lower levels and the other one is the example My Dir containing ONLY short cuts and folders.

Apps / Software :: Classic Shell Explorer Toolbar?

Apr 16, 2014

The loss of the Classic Shell toolbar in Windows Explorer is still puzzling me.

I've been through all the Classic Shell options (I think!) and messed around with Windows Explorer, but after installing 8.1 the toolbar seems to have disappeared.

I used to have all the View buttons pinned to the bar and I'm really missing it. I know they can be put in the Quick Access Bar, but it's not as usable/fast as the Classic Shell version (the change as hovering I also find very annoying).

EDIT: Just realise I hadn't checked the version I was using. It's 4.0.4 and re-checking the developers site I've now realised that they're up to 4.0.6 ------ Could this be the issue?

I seem to remember that 4.0.6 was not yet stable, or have I dreamt that - I think I probably have

How To Manually Resize Icons Sizes In Quick Launch Toolbar

Sep 15, 2014

What I am asking for is a request to manually size the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar. I do not want a suggestion that states an alternative way for viewing my icons (for example, pinning programs or what-not).

I am asking to see if there is a registry tweak that manually sets the size of the icons in the QuickLaunch toolbar (refer to the image). They are a bit small, and want to slightly increase their sizes.

Windows 8 - Right Side Toolbar Displaying When Move Cursor In Middle Of Screen

Jul 19, 2013

I just purchased a laptop with Windows 8 installed on it. I have one problem. I know if you hit one of the corners of the screen the right toolbar becomes activated and is displayed. My problem is that it tends to be displayed when I move the cursor in the middle of the screen. When it is displayed I have to deactivate it in order to continue what I was doing. I do not mind the toolbar if it is not so sensitive.

Security :: How To Manually Download Latest Definition Updates For Microsoft Security Essentials

Mar 7, 2013

Initially on Win7, I was manually updating Security Essentials when was offline from this link:

How to manually download the latest definition updates for Microsoft Security Essentials

You choose x86 or x64 and go from there.

What's not mentioned, is that you can use the same links to update Windows Defender on Windows 8 as well.

I've been doing this for quite some time without issues. So the two programs are very much alike.

Security :: Can Change Local Security Policy Entries From RegEdit?

Mar 8, 2014

Which registry settings should I change to set the top two default Windows rules back to 'Unrestricted' ?

I set up some rules in the local security policy some time ago when there was fuss in the news about the cryptolocker virus. They looked a lot like the rules above (I found that screenshot online as I can't take one myself, read on..)

Today I was installing some software that wanted access to the areas I restricted. I temporarily disabled the rules, then re-enabled them. Being a dumbass I also set the top two rules (which are Windows default rules) to Disallowed!

Over the following 10 minutes various aspects of my PC stopped working, telling me that the local security policy prevented access. I couldn't even get into the Control Panel or the Local Security Policy screen to change it back, once I realised what I had done. I rebooted the machine - it won't come back up

I've tried a system restore by booting from the installer on USB (which did not work, it grumbled that it could not restore due a file locked by anti-virus) so I think I've got two options:

Refresh my system using the Windows 8 tools - but I suspect that might leave the LSP rules in place, as it retains my settings & preferences.Hand edit the registry to correct the settings.

Option 2 is looking best, I can get into RegEdit from the recovery console, but I'm not sure what to edit and what to set it to? This is on Windows 8.1 Pro...

Security :: Temporary Disabling IE Content Security Blocking

Mar 28, 2014

I came to some trouble installing CorelDraw software which apparently uses for it's setup launcher web active container performed by IE core. If I launch setup, the setup windows is evidently noninitialized showing the top warning band about active content being blocked for security reasons. Even allowing active content by selecting from the top bar menu doesn't make the setup continue. So now I'd need to temporarily bypass all IE's security checks, ie. allow everything. What I already did was browsing the security tab in IE options and allowing most of the choices in branches ActiveX controls and plugin modules + Scripting (Local Intranet). On Advanced tab I have checked in Security branch Allow execution of active content from CD discs on this computer + Allow execution of active content from files on this computer. Nothing of these affecting the installer to run (ie. I still see then active content blocking bar).

My download settings were already at "prompt" anyway, so there's something deeper I can't figure out. I'm a reasonably competent generalist but not super computer smart.
