In Windows Vista, all icons that have the shield mean that you need to have administrative rights to open that program.

To remove the icon,

  1. Launch MSCONFIG from the Run menu("Start" button + "R"

  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.

  1. Press the Launch button.
  2. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  3. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.

Front inputs? (green and pink not working)


I thought the front was for a microphone and headset. I don't think those are speaker jacks. Look closely at the icon that is next to the pink and green on the front, does it show the icon of a microphone and headset?

Normally the speaker jack will show and arrow going out which means sound going out. If you look at the speaker port in the back of the computer it is normally the light green port. Notice the icon on it. Does the icon on the front look the same as the one on the back? Is the color on the front the same as the one on the back? I think you're plugging into the wrong port.

Make sure you have the volume up in your Audio/Sound properties and make sure you don't have the speakers on mute. Also make sure you turn the speakers on and turn the volume up on them.

A fella at work had this happen to his profile.
I fixed it for him.
I found http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-security-shield
on the above page it talks about putting in an activation code ( 64C665BE-4DE7-423B-A6B6-BC0172B25DF2 ) to the Security Shield app which shuts down the Security Shield and stops it from popping up.
Then you can delete it.
run some cleanup software

I have a Compaq Presarion 1425. I am trying to remove the administrator block so that my sister who is in college can download things from her school. A message about administration comes up when she is...


If running Vista: Try the following
Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it. Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer. You should be done with administrator prompts! Now, Microsoft highly recommends that you do not do this. A little red X shield icon plants itself in your taskbar, telling you about the security risk. In Control Panel, go to the Security Center. On the left hand side, click the "Change the way Security Center alerts me" and choose "Don't notify me and don't display the icon (not recommended)"

Just by a wild chance the "block" isn't coming from your sisters colleges web site?

I cannot remove "Shield Deluxe 8" from my P.C.


Hello,
Try turning off the program. In the right hand bottom of the screen, right click on the D icon and click on exit. This will disable the program. Then go to the Control Panel, add/remove programs and select the shield deluxe program and uninstall it.

If you still have problems, let me know..

Thanks,
Lolita
