System File Protection on a jpg?????

Q: System File Protection on a jpg?????

Hi, My cat has given birth to 4 beautiful kittens. Woo-Hoo.

Obviously i have taken photos of the cute little critters and transfered them to a folder on my pc.

I used G6 Utilities to rename and enumerate all the pictures. When i look in the folder now there are several pictures missing. Fortunately i have found them. Unfortunately i found them by showing Protected Operating System files.

After googling for a while i have only managed to find out how to disable the File System Protection for all of Windows. Before i attempt this i would like to know if it will allow me to recover the pictures or if it is just better to delete them and take new ones.

Or does anyone know of another way to remove this protection? Any software that may help?

Thanks in advance.

For the last week I've been in the midst of a gruesome malware infection that I had been trying to rid from my mom's computer.

I sought help as it was outside of my level of knowledge with dealing with viruses and other sorts of trouble, and thus arrived here.

In the process of cleaning this system I was advised that the computer has problems with its windows file protection system. I had a problem with my system file rundll32.exe. It was deleted by ComboFix in the malware removal process; that issue was fixed but I guess the system was not working as it should to replace the loss of a file or something?

I'm not too sure. BTW Is this a severe issue? Where can I get to/go to in Windows to see more about this feature?

If you haven't all ready done so, try:

I am running windows ME on a Packard Bell computer and am running out of hard drive.
The package supplied with the computer includes a variety of software which is of no use to me but I am unable to remove it to make more space because P_B have managed to include it in the template used by the file protection system.
How can I edit the template? Preferably without using DOS for I am not good in that area.

Less than a month ago I build a new rig, installed Windows 7 on my SSD and at a later time I attached my old 1TB large disk with still had XP installed on it.

Windows is protecting this drive, all folders are flagged read only and I'm unable to remove the read only flag, each time I try, and check back after processing a job to un flag it, there still there.

I'm able to delete files and folders after accepting the UAC popup, however, there are several folders I want to remove but am unable to, /Boot, /Documents & Settings, /Windows and some root system files, but windows doesn't let me.
(I need to run programs with elevated rights in order to be able to modify those files)

The /Boot is from an older Windows 7 install and it should be safe removing it, because I installed windows 7 on a SSD with out any other disks attached, so no dual boot stuff.

But worst of all, many files are also flagged read only, along with my project files that I'm now unable to modify.
What buttons do I need to press to get windows to understand he should not be protecting this disk and there ain't no windows installed on it so I can clean up get rid of those read only flags on the files

I bought MalwareBytes because I had been using the free version for so long and swore by it. But now I can't enable System File Protection. I've been going back and forth with their Tech Support department and so far there is no resolution. They had me run various software (like mbam-check-2.0.0.1000.exe and ComboFix), as well as do virus scans outside of Windows, but still the 2 checkboxes just will not be enabled. Does anyone have any idea about why this might be happening?

Hi guys,

I know that there's a brilliant tool that changes the Start Button text, I think from the same guys that do the orb changer too... It's a blackbox, lord knows how it does what it does, but sadly it's stopped working...

I tried a sfc /scannow on an offending VHD exhibiting the symptoms (start button {VHD} label "stuck", cannot be changed) here's the fail log from CBS

Is Explorer.exe protected? context menu "take ownership" in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas isn't available...

I'm currently in my old build, where the button text hasn't been tampered with (as the button was hidden, by 7+ taskbar tweaker, very good and I'm wondering if I can retrieve a copy of whichever files that are corrupted in the store and the build, and manually replace... (please see log, and if you know how the startbuttontextchange is successfully affected, so I can manually attempt, that'd be christmassy)

Please help if anyone can, and I'll owe you one. This isn't the first time I've made progress with tweaking Windows, only for functionality to give out.. having to restore to previous working builds as latest started suffering firewall over-protection issues, but that's another story..


Many thanks to all, and best wishes in your quests

A:System File Protection, and MUI Cache issues (start button text)

Did the program you used to change the text create a backup of Explorer.exe. Most orb changing programs do. Have a look in C:\windows and see if there isn't a Explorer_Backup.exe or similar. What program did you use to change the text? A Guy

2. Open %SystemRoot%\System32\SFC_Patch.DLL in a hex editor.

3. At offset 0xE2B8 and 0xE2B9, change 8BC6 to 9090 and save the changes.

4. Open a CMD prompt and type:

I am going nuts here. I downloaded a file for work purposes last night & have been having problems ever since. I downloaded a .mov video off of a site. I wasn't able to download it directly, so I used RealPlayer recorder and saved it to my desktop. The file is 164 MB. I haven't been able to open the video with any program (they freeze up when I try). I downloaded the video because I wanted to convert it to an .MP3 so I could transcribe it easier, I was unsuccessful with that.I can't delete the file. It goes through the motions, saying it is sending to the recycling bin, but it never completes it. I tried going into command prompt and deleting it that way. It shows up in the directory, but when I type the request to delete it, it says the file is not found! I also tried deleting it from the desktop in safe mode. That didn't work either.I have scanned with McAfee, MalwareBytes, and SuperAntiSpyware. Those haven't picked up anything. I used ATF Cleaner. I did a System Restore, hoping that would solve my problem. That just seemed to make things worse, because now McAfee is disabled for computer & files, it won't fix the protection items because it says some components are missing (this might possibly resolve itself with a reboot, as I have had it do that before).

I've had the System Integrity Scan Wizard, PC-Antispyware, and Security System Protection Control Panel popups. They've been very stubborn but after reading some of the posts here and running Spybot, Adaware, SmitfraudFix, Panda Activescan, Housecall, Stinger Avert, Windows Defender, and SDFix, I am now getting only one popup, which shows up as a blank white rectangle in the center of the screen (and now I can't click "Close" to get it off the screen, since the "Close" option is missing). From the size & shape, I believe it's the Security System Protection Control Panel. Would you please review my HijackThis log? Also, in some of the posts I've noticed recommendations to update Java.

A:System Integrity Scan Wizard, Security System Protection Control Panel

The blank popup appeared to be repopulated with information over time...apparently the spyware refreshed itself. I also learned from Task Manager that all of my popups were from the System Integrity Scan Wizard. After some more searching, I found the name (in my case, yzqrqzkp.exe) and told Norton Firewall to block it from accessing the internet. I used HijackThis to fix it and then deleted it and a namesake (YZQRQZKP.EXE-1253B76A.pf) from Windows\Prefetch (not sure that was necessary but deleted it anyway). My only concern is that from what I read, there should have been another copy in \Local Settings\Application Data, which I didn't find. I updated Java per instructions in another post, also turned System Restore off and on. I think the PC is now clean, but would you review my latest HijackThis log to be sure?

You have no Restore Points. Use System Protection to create restore point.
When I attempt to turn on System Protection, it doesn't show any drives available when it opens -- it just says that it's searching for available drives and it keeps searching and doesn't stop. Eventually, I'll receive the following Error Message:

My PC is infected with 3 malware popups named Security System Proctection Control Panel, System Integrity Scan Wizard and Security System Warning (the last one telling me I have Abebot). I have tried to get rid of them with Kaspersky Antit-Virus, Adaware, spyware sweeper, and SpybotSD, but they are still running. I didn't run the online scan by Kaspersky because I have the most recent version installed and running on my PC. When I ran a rootkit scan with KAV, it took just over four hours and reported my PC was clean. So for whatever reason Kaspersky is not picking up these three forms of malware.

Hello,

I have recently just successfully cloned my Old primary 1TB Western Digital HDD onto my new 1TB Samsung EVO SSD to increase hard drive performance to give it a quick boot up and to enable Windows and my programs to load a lot quicker and perform better with multi tasking. My laptop is one of the bigger 17inch Acer models which comes with two hard drive bays. So once I had wiped my older WD HDD I then inserted a new 2 TB Seagate hard drive into the second bay to be able to store it for personal and media files, and any other imprtant data, to keep it the SSD as the primary hard drive and just for OS and programs only. My system runs the Windows 8.1 OS and is 64 bit.

However, I wanted to create a restore point and upon doing so, I found that System protection was turned off for all my both my hard drives.

I thought I had managed to somehow enable system protection on my C:/ Dive (including the partioned / drive on the same hard drive) on my SSD, and yet though it shows them enabled, it shows the word missing next to them, and I am assuming this is telling me the previous restores are missing; whether as a result of cloning I don't know. The other weird thing is further up the properties page it also shows the C\ and D:\ Drive but turned off.

Hi, I defragged my registry (castigate me later, please), and well, my system crashed. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a Lenovo laptop, and on startup, I get a blue screen claiming that the OS couldn't boot, and the option to try a system repair. After analysis, it says that it can't repair the system automatically, and offers more advanced options. I can try a system restore, but after selecting a restore point (clearly the one created before defragging the registry), system restore says that I must enable system protection on the drive. I don't remember disabling it, and I don't know how to enable it without access to the desktop.
From those same advanced recovery options, I can use a system image recovery (don't have an image to recover from), the windows memory diagnostic (it claims there's no memory error), or the command prompt. I know very little about using the command prompt, but I can open the task manager at least, though not explorer.exe or msconfig.exe (the prompt claims they're invalid commands).
I've tried booting in safe mode, with the last known good configuration, with boot logging, and everything else from that menu, as well as a Windows 7 recovery disc (though I believe this disc just provides the same options as those installed on the laptop.

Hi Everyone

I've been searching the web for a solution for the past couple of hours and it seems like quite a common problem. However I've tried all of the suggested solutions and nothing seems to work.

My Toshiba Notebook (x64) (running Windows 7) has stopped being able to open/run programs. I've been using safe mode to try and find a cure, and safe mode works fine. I ran a few antivirus programs that detected a few things, but none of them solved this issue. Using System Restore seems to be the only thing I can really do, but I've been having some troubles with it.

Only one System Restore point shows up, and it's only from a few days ago, which isn't far back enough to fix my problem (I've already tried restoring it to that point). There are no other options as you can see here and here.

I tried to create my own restore point, but ran into some problems. When I go into "System" the "System Protection" option is missing. I only have these three options:

When I use the search bar to find it instead, "Create a restore point" comes up, but when I click and it opens System Properties, the "System Protection" tab is missing.

When I looked it up, someone had suggested running Regedit and checking HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore\DisableSR but I couldn't get that far.

If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

System protection wasn?t turned off on that one.

I do not use shadow copies: If shadow copies are in use on my computer it doesn?t matter to me if that is the case as I don?t know how to use them anyway. I just don?t want system protection turned off.

A:I donít want system protection turned off when I do a MR system image

Hi,

The available disk space on the pc with the warning issue is probably too small to store both backup images (MR) and system protection image.






I do not use shadow copies:



Actually you do. System Protection is a form of Shadow Copying.

Furthermore, it's not wise policy to store backups on the same physical drive as your system. Still better than nothing but all in all not sound practice.
Better to store back up on an ext. removable drive.

In the mean time you could reduce the amount of space allocated to System Protection and see if that helps any.

Cheers,

I recently found that my file protection was turned off so I turned it on and now when I start my computer it asks for my windows xp cd and it goes through and replaces files that are missing. This happens every time I have to shutdown and restart my computer.

Also I have windows xp home edition, but it asks for my pro cd. I hit retry and it does go through and replace the files from my dell oem version of windows xp home.

I have antivirus and firewall updated and running. I also have adaware and spybot updated and run everyday.

Any ideas on what I should look for to find out why my files keep disappearing?

Also if this means anything everytime I go inot my control panel now I have to switch back to icon view, it keeps changing back to details all by itself.
Thank you for any help.

Yes it is, and its fairly easy to do so. Find a file you want to restrict access to, right click on it, click properties then go the security tab. Pick each one account you dont want to allow access from, and uncheck the checkboxes below for permissions. Apply changes.
Be careful with what you are doing, make sure you understand the checkboxes and their purpose. Else you could find yourself unable to access them yourself(if you dont have administrative rights on the computer).

Hi,
I wanted to start system restore. The window shows: to create a restore point

open System Protection.

When this link is clicked, the System Properties dialog is opened by

SystemPropertiesProtection.exe

But the Tabs "System Protection" and "Remote" are missing in this dialog.

Something is wrong with the installation, but I cannot do new clean installation as many software is installed upon the platform. I have mounted the Vista installation DVD with "GImageX", but I do not know which files or Registry Entries I have to extract.

Hi,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Run Regedit and check the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore\DisableSR.

If the key is present and has any value other than 0 then system restore is disabled and the system protection tab will be hidden.

Viruses often disable this by setting this registry key. Often they will also disable the task manager and regedit too.

If you get a message saying regedit has been disabled by your administrator then it's quite possible you have been targeted by a virus, in which case a full scan of your system is a good idea.


As always, before making changes to your registry, back it up.

i didn't encounter such problems in the past when i'm updating my windows..

what should i do ?
 

A:Windows File Protection

Type sfc /scannow (note space) in command prompt and put in os disc. Once it's replaced system files you can Click Start, Run, Type: eventvwr.msc and then Click OK

Click System

Then under Source find Windows File Protection (WFP) If there are only two entries, it means 1) It started 2) It finished.

If there are any more it means it has replaced a file. Just double click it to find out what it has done.

Then you can do the updates.

This afternoon my scanner software started crashing. After reinstalling various versions, I looked at the event log and found several messages from Windows File Protection. For example:

The protected system file mfc42.dll could not be restored to its original, valid version. The file version of the bad file is 6.0.8665.0 The specific error code is 0x800b0100 [No signature was present in the subject.

But the MS DLL Help site says this is the current version.

I ran SFC and it logged a lot of supposed errors with DLLs.

It appears that SFC and File Protection are confused. Any suggestions for getting this cleared up?

The scanner software is stil not working and I have no idea if a bum system DLL is the culprit or not.
 

A:Win2K File Protection

Can't help you with your files but the scanner problem should have nothing to do with it.

When you installed the scanner it should replace all files that will not work with it.

What I would do is remove the scanner programming. Delere all files and folders that have to do with it.

Make sure your scanner is turned on and reboot. Let windows find the scanner and install it.

Once you have the scanner insatalled, then CTRL/ALT/DEL and close all programs except Explorer.

Then install the software for the scanner.

Don't confuse the program software with the scanner drivers.

By doing it this way you are installing the drivers for the scanner before windows fully loads and then after it is booted up and closing all programs you are installing the scanner program files with everything closed and if a file isn't right it will be able to replace it.

I've a friend who is running WIN XP and AOL 9.0 Optimized. After he has been in AOL for awhile he receives a "Windows File Protection" dialog box which says:

Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been
replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability,
windows must restore the original versions of these files.

Insert your Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM now.

Retry More Information... Cancel"

If he selects "More Information" he receives another "Windows File Protection" dialog box which says:

Possible reasons for this problem:

. You have inserted the wrong CD (i.e. a different windows product CD than the version installed)
. the CD-ROM drive in your system is not functioning properly."
He tells me he only has the one Windows XP CD. Also, the CD-ROM is working OK as it is able to read CDs.

If he selects CANCEL to the first message, everything goes about its merry way and things seem to work fine.

Can anyone tell me what may be causing this message to appear besides the obvious which is stated in the message? I know from past experience that what is said in messages isn't always the truth.

TIA
 

A:WIN XP File Protection Error Msg

It probably is the truth this time since AOL has a long history of replacing system files with AOL versions. In Windows 3.1, there would have been very little there if it weren't for AOL at times.

If those files are being replaced by AOL versions, and there is no reason to disallow the replacement, then it is best to just let the files be replaced.

I'm not clear from the post whether there is an option to approve of the replacement. Usually, another window pops up and asks if you want to allow the replacement to take place and if you say, "Yes," then it stops bothering you.

But if the window pops up every time, you will probably need to know what files they are so that their versions in the dllcache can be replaced, too.

Certainly, AOL support should be familiar with the problem.

A:Windows File Protection

I guess you didn't do something simple like making a full backup back when things were working properly. Just about a must with Win XP.

You can try a normal restore procedure to a day when things worked but Win XP demands a backup for a lot of problems. Without proper backups you are making relatively easy solutions very tough in some cases.

Name of the game is you can't do to many backups, especially with Win XP. I would have at least two independent copies at all times. Maybe one on a partitioned drive (same as physical C) and some other physical separate place, a USB external drive is nice. I keep many copies, don't erase the older ones until space becomes a problem.

Running a restore of a full backup cures many problems. You should always backup all Drive C operating files, system settings / registry as provided by the OS.

A:windows file protection

Answer Match 43.26%

I'm running on Windows XP Home. Every so often a message pops up stating the following:

"Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by
unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must restore
the original version of these files.

Insert your Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM now."

I'm assuming that I'm supposed to reinstall the os to replace the files because that's the only option the cd offers that looks like it might fix the issue. I've already reinstalled and the message continues to pop up. I've downloaded updated files from the Microsoft web site and still it persists. Please help!!!

Thanx,
elbob
 

A:Windows File Protection

Windows updates themselves contain files that the original OS doesn't recognise (and sometimes tries to restore to original). While I'm not going to say this is the problem without further information, it's not unheard of believe me.
Microsoft has (finally) announced the release of SP2 (Service Pack 2) for XP that should resolve this issue (and several others).

I recently have been looking into putting passwords on my files, to protect myself from hackers and from prying eyes cough**mom**cough. I tried using TrueCrypt but its a pain to have to mount the drive every time you log in, then dismount when you log out and keeping the program open. I've also tried putting opening a notepad document and implement this code:
cls
Echo OFF
title Folder Private
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER

echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N)
set/p "cho=>"
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK

echo Invalid choice.

I am curious I was reading a previous thread which concerned a Teacher, Wendy and her issues with her current computer instructor. When following the thread a program I have never heard of, HijackThis was mentioned several times. Is this a program that just simplly reports problems to the user or is it like Spybot S&D(which I am currently using) in that it can also fix any possible security issues. If HijackThis can do the previous: fix report and whatever else; then what additional advantages does it provide the user that Spybot doesn't support, and would U use this in place of Spybot S&D or something else.
 

A:system protection?

It is not an automated tool, and provides no judgement or recommendations on removal. It simply shows what is present in several locations of the registry and file system - you have to know what you're looking at to use it to delete entries.
When I think it's preferable that dll's are unregistered etc., I will often recommend that SpyBotSD be run first and then use HJT to look and see if it missed something.

You can see some instructions at http://tomcoyote.org/hjt/ if you want to look at it.

Why can I not save restore  points when I have it set to restore previous versions of files only?  It shows system protection turned off when set this way. Only way it will show turned on is if I have setting and files turned on.

A:System Protection

Hi -
System Restore is just that - System Restore -
I have not been able to set mine to restore only one file / folder to an earlier time, unless I have a backup made.
 
However I may have missed a setting that I could not find, but I can only set mine to System Restore -
 
More general information ..............

 What files are changed during a system restore ?
 

System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It can also make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files created under any user account on your computer. System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file.
NOTE :: If you have backups of your files, you can restore the files from a backup.

 
Always create a backup of your system prior to doing any System Restore
 
Open System Restore and follow the links in that area as to what you will restore and what you can do there.
There is a lot of helpfull information listed there -
 
Thank You -

System Protection - Turn On or Off

Answer Match 43.26%

I just finished "cleaning out" an old Dell desktop. I deleted a lot of files. I don't intend to un-delete any of them (couldn't anyway, because I did a wipe of the free space), but the thought occurred to me, what if I wanted to un-delete one of them? In the old DOS days, I could do that without software (like Recuva). But with NTFS file systems, I note that there is a system setting called System Protection that provides a built-in way to recover deleted files, as long as you haven't overwritten them. I checked the settings for this app on my desktop. System Protection is Off for both of my drives, so that's apparently the default.

Question: What are the downsides of turning that On? My guess would be that it burdens the MFT with more entries, thereby slowing drive performance. Is that true and are there any other downsides?

A:System Protection

The only real downside to turning on System Protection is that is consumes some disk space but you can control that. The impact on performance is insignificant.

Hi Cailleach Echo, welcome to BC I have moved your topic to the "Am I infected? What Do I Do?" forum since you appear to be infected by a rogue security product. This will allow our members who specialize in malware removal to find your topic more easily.I've always been warned not to open anything that ends with ".exe"Sound advice. You're infected with some sort of rogue security program. These programs falsely warn that your computer is infected (like in the list of baddies you were given) and then prompt the user (you) to download a file to "clean" the computer. Do not download anything it asks you to. Do not purchase any program it recommends. It is a scam and will only serve to make the situation worse.

Yesterday I, as always before, was going to do monthly Macrium Reflect system backup. As per usual I did all the AV, HW and software checks, made sure windows and SW was up to date, absolutely everything works as good as ever. At the end of those checks I did sfc /scannow but would not go past 58%. Dism also got stuck at some 20% on or offline, in safe mode too.
All disks are in perfect shape and so are drivers etc.
Before I do something radical like restoring last moth's Macrium backup or doing windows repair I would like to see if there's something less radical to troubleshoot this problem.
I still have W10 on another disk to fall back to if necessary so in no way I could be left without OS on this computer. Willing to try anything. Any ideas ?

How does System Protection work...does it save information to a separate partition?

I have a 7gb partition on my drive that I do not know what it is for. I deleted it and was am thinking of adding it to my main C: partition. Did destroy the System Protection partition?

A:System Protection?

That partition was likely put there by the manufacturer to help you restore the PC to factory specs if you ever needed to do that.

If you in fact deleted the partition and do not have "recovery disks", you will have problems restoring to factory specs.

Do you have any install discs at all? What happens if your hard drive fails in 30 minutes?

System protection is not the same as "system restore", which you may be thinking of. System restore returns the operating system to the way it was on the date the restore point was made---typically somewhere in the last couple of weeks-----not to factory specs. System restore points are stored on your C drive along with Windows.

This drive should have no changes usually - its purpose is to keep the original version of your operating system, settings, drivers, original image and to be able to restore your PC to factory default condition.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

To work around this problem, make sure that the Windows installation CD is available when you run the sfc.exe /scannow command, and then click Cancel every time that you receive an error message. The System File Checker utility will successfully complete the scan operation.

Note If no Windows installation CD is available, you may have to cancel the error message many times. In this scenario, you may want to cancel the whole operation. To do this, follow these steps:Drag the Windows File Protection dialog box to another location on the desktop.

Note After you move the Windows File Protection dialog box, you will see a second Windows File Protection dialog box. This second Windows File Protection dialog box contains the following message: Please wait while Windows verifies that all protected Windows files are intact and in their original versions.
Click Cancel in the second Windows File Protection dialog box.
Click Cancel in the first Windows File Protection dialog box, and then click Yes
You can also, put the XP CD in, and copy the i386 folder to the root of the C: drive.

Yes, save it to the hard drive under any folder you wish, I usually prefer C:\i386.
Click start-run and type regedit and go to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\
Look for a REG_SZ string that is called SourcePath. Right click and select modify. Enter the pathname that you saved the CD under. So for example C:\i386.
