Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

IE Shortcuts keep appearing

Hello,

My companay recently applied some group policy that provided shortcut links (favorites) to IE 7, so now they are across the top of my browser. It is annoying because there is only so much real estate and I one of them is useless to me. I've gone int Documents and Settings and deleted them from all users. I've also deleted them by right clicking on them.

Some executable or something is running and keeps putting it back there. Is there anyway to find where it is originating from and delete it?

Thanks

    I tried it for all of them with the selection of "Add-ons currently loaded", except for those by Adobe or MS One note. Didnt work. There are other selections in the drop-down for add-ons that load without permission and add-ons that have ever been loaded. should i go through them as well?

Try going into tools- manage add-ons and disable browser add-ons one by one. When you get to the right one, your add- in should be gone. You have to shut down internet explorer and restart it every time you disable an add-on for the changes to take effect.

    You could try the add-ons that run without permissions -the ones that have never loaded won't be causing problems. You could try un-installing & re-installing IE7, but it's unlikely that this will work. One thing that will work is a program called "hijack This" by soperman. Do a scan with this & look for a browser helper object (bho) that isn't from a company you recognize. tick the box next to it & press the button that says "fix Selected". This will remove this annoyance when you get the right bho.

I have genuine windows 7 but computer says that it is not genuine


To resolve this issue, you can either disable the policy setting (Method A), or edit the permissions to provide the Licensing Service the required permissions (Method B). Method A: Disable the Plug and Play Policy
1. Determine the source of the policy. To do this, follow these steps:
a. On the client experiencing the Activation error, run the Resultant Set of Policy wizard by clicking Start, Run and entering rsop.msc as the command.
b. Visit the following location:
Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings /Security Settings / System Services /
If the Plug and Play service is configured through a Group Policy setting, you see it here with settings other than Not Defined. Additionally, you can see which Group Policy is applying this setting.

2. Disable the Group Policy settings and force the Group Policy to be reapplied.
a. Edit the Group Policy that is identified in Step 1 and change the setting to "Not Defined." Or, follow the section below to add the required permissions for the Network Service account.
b. Force the Group Policy setting to reapply: gpupdate /force (a restart of the client is sometimes required)
Method B: Edit the permissions of the Group Policy:
1. Open the Group Policy that is identified in Method A, Step 1 above, and open the corresponding Group Policy setting.
2. Click the Edit Security button, and then click the Advanced button.
3. In the Advanced Security Settings for Plug and Play window click Add and then add the SERVICE account. Then, click OK
4. Select the following permissions in the Allow section and then click OK:
Query template
Query status
Enumerate dependents
Interrogate
User-defined control
Read permissions
Note: The Previous rights are the minimum required permissions.
5. Run gpupdate /force after you apply the previous permissions to the Group Policy setting.
6. Verify that the appropriate permissions are applied with the following command:
sc sdshow plugplay
The following are the rights applied to the Plug and Play service in SDDL:

D:(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;SY)
(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)
(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;IU)
(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU)
S:(AU;FA;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;WD)
(A;;CC LC SW LO CR RC ;;;SU is an Access Control Entry (ACE) that allows the following rights to "SU" (SDDL_SERVICE - Service logon user)
A: Access Allowed
CC: Create Child
LC: List Children
SW: Self Write
LO: List Object
CR: Control Access
RC: Read Control
SU: Service Logon User
Note: If there are no GPO's in place, then another activity may have changed the default registry permissions. To work around this issue, perform the following steps:
  1. On the computer that is out of tolerance, start Registry Editor.
  2. Right-click the registry key HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20, and select Permissions...
  3. If the NETWORK SERVICE is not present, click Add...
  4. In Enter the object names to select type Network Service and then click Check Names and OK.
  5. Select the NETWORK SERVICE and Grant Full Control and Read permissions.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. After the restart, the system may require activation. Complete the activation.
