I am attempting to figure out how to fix this problem. It has to do with Microsoft’s proprietary Activex scripting. Basically when you attempt to log in at a secured website or need to run an AX script be it to validate Windows, or to do a virus scan at Panda’s website, it just says an error has occurred for the latter and the page just sits there for the former. I am at my wits end trying to figure out exactly how this can be mitigated. I’ve tried resetting IE’s security settings; I’ve tried resetting all the advanced settings within IE. I tried clearing the cache, clearing temp internet files, pretty much everything that a normal person would do. My guess, and this is just a guess, is that it has to do with a registry key or string of registry keys not having the proper permissions on them thus I am being denied access to write to the specific key or keys. It’s just a hypothesis and I even attempted to delve deeper into this. I downloaded and used SysInternal’s RegMon which basically monitors your registry for any changes and reports it to you on the fly. I did find one particular key that kept popping up that it reported as could not find.
I’ve searched Google to my heart’s content. I’ve searched Google Groups, only to find solutions that I’ve already exhausted.
Anyone who deals with spyware on a day to day basis, care to let me know your little secret? Even an overlay of the operating system will not do the trick. This is a game I’ve been playing with spyware for quite some time now. I will get the upper hand, I will. It’s just a matter of time.
