i every time open my computer one massage is open on my desktop your system may be at risk how to solve this problem


Windows is alerting you that you have either

1. No firewall settings configured, no firewall, or turned off windows firewall

or

2. No anti-virus/anti-malware software

To solve number one, you should turn on the windows firewall or install a 3rd party firewall program of your choosing. To turn on windows firewall, follow this procedure for Windows XP:

1. START > Control Panel > Security Center
2. When security center opens, look for the section "Manage Security Settings For" then click "Windows Firewall."
3. In the Dialog box that comes up, click the circle in front of "On" to turn on the firewall. This setting may already be turned on. Verify the firewall is turned on.
4. Click "Ok" to save your choices and exit, or "Cancel" to close the window without saving any choices.

If you choose to install a 3rd party firewall program, use the above procedure and select "OFF" in step 3. You want to do this so that there will not be conflicts between the Windows Firewall and the 3rd party firewall program. Once you turn off Windows firewall, immediately install and turn on your 3rd party firewall program to minimize exposing your computer to threats.

For number two, you should install a quality anti-virus or anti-malware program. McAfee, and Norton are popular choices. Avast! Antivirus, AVG and Malware Bytes are a bit more comprehensive, especially Malware Bytes. Avast! Antivirus is free, both to download and update. The license lasts a year, but you can simply re-download and install the program to get a fresh new license that's good for a year. Each program has varying features and goodies, so choose the one that's best for you.

Order Number:246889. I have not received my answer. Problem is a DLL ERROR ~ not printer. littlecaesar@atc.cc My problem is a script error (IE frame.dll error) Please give answer by email promptly !!


  1. Restart your computer unless you've already done so. The ieframe.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

  2. Install the latest version of Internet Explorer. No matter if you're missing ieframe.dll or if you're receiving a browser error message about it, reinstalling or updating to the latest version of Internet Explorer has resolved many user's issues with ieframe.dll.

  3. Using Visual Basic 6? If so, change the reference for Microsoft Internet Controls from the existing ieframe.dll to shdocvw.ocx. Save your project and then reopen it.

  4. Restart your router, switch, cable/DSL modem and anything else that's used to communicate to the Internet or other computers on your network. There may be an issue in one of these pieces of hardware that a simple restart could solve.

  5. Scan your entire computer for viruses. Sometimes, the ieframe.dll error will show up when your computer is infected with certain kinds of viruses. Use your antivirus software to do a complete system scan for virus infections.

  6. Disable Windows Firewall in Windows XP if you have another firewall installed. Running two firewall applications at the same time can cause problems so if you have a firewall program installed like ZoneAlarm, Norton Personal Firewall, Comodo Firewall, etc., then you should not be running Windows's built-in firewall simultaneously.

    Note: Even if you're positive that the Windows firewall is disabled, check again. Some Microsoft security updates have been known to re-enable the firewall automatically even if you have an existing firewall enabled in another security software program.

  7. Update all non-Microsoft firewall and other security software on your computer. Certain security updates from Microsoft have been known to cause issues with security software from other vendors that those vendors are responsible for resolving. Check their websites for updates or service packs and install any that are available.

    Note: If you're already running a fully updated version of your security software, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the software instead. A clean installation may stop that nagging ieframe.dll error message.

  8. Install any available Windows updates. It is true that some previous updates from Microsoft may actually cause some ieframe.dll errors, but installing more recent updates, especially those to the Windows Update software itself, may help resolve the problem.

  9. Clear the temporary Internet files in Internet Explorer 7. Some ieframe.dll issues may have to do with problems accessing existing temporary Internet files.

  10. Increase the frequency that Internet Explorer 7 checks for new versions of web pages. If the default setting is too infrequent and there are issues with certain pages, you may see ieframe.dll and related errors.

  11. Disable Internet Explorer 7 add-ons one by one. One of your installed add-ons might be causing the ieframe.dll issue. Selectively disabling them will show you which one, if any, is causing problems.

  12. Set Internet Explorer 7 security options back to their default levels. Some programs, even some updates from Microsoft, will sometimes make automatic changes to your Internet Explorer 7 security settings.

    Incorrect or overprotective security settings can sometimes cause ieframe.dll issues. Returning these settings to their default levels may correct your issue.

  13. Move the IE7 Temporary Internet Files Folder to its Default Location in Windows XP. If the Temporary Internet Files folder in Internet Explorer 7 has been moved from its original location, plus both Protected Mode and the Phishing Filter are enabled, the ieframe.dll error will occur.

  14. Disable the Phishing Filter in Internet Explorer 7. This isn't a great long term solution if you don't have another phishing filter installed, but disabling IE7's phishing filter has been known to correct ieframe.dll issues in some situations.

  15. Disable Protected Mode in Internet Explorer 7. The Protected Mode feature in Internet Explorer 7 can, in some very specific situations, be involved in generating an ieframe.dll error message.
