Local security policy error and missing tabs on properties

Q: Local security policy error and missing tabs on properties

I noticed that i'm missing nearly all tabs on properties, only general and summary tabs are visible. So at least security and compatibility tabs are missing and i need them. I noticed that when i go to Local security policy settings on Control panel>Administrative tools i get this error: and i think these problems are connected. So i need to fix that error and get the properties window working right again. Im administrator and running XP pro SP2.

Preferred Solution: Local security policy error and missing tabs on properties

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Local security policy error and missing tabs on properties

You can restore missing tabs on properties go to Start>Run, type regedit. In the Registry Editor go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
you should have a DWORD key "NoDispSettingsPage" change the value to "0".
If you don't see "NoDispSettingsPage" create the key give it a value of "1" then go back and change the value to "0".

**ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES**

If you're not comfortable messing with the registry wait for someone else with another suggestion. Good Luck!!!

I'll precede my question by stating that I had a couple viruses that I believe are gone now, the problems I am having may be remnants of them. First problem was with Office install, there was a restriction on a registry key, I was able to get the permissions back for the key and installed successfully. Now I am trying to update to Windows Media Player 11, and am getting an error code C00D2AFB also 80070005 General access denied error. Which I think may be another restriction problem. Have had no problems with any other software vendors other than Microsoft. Also I don't know if this is odd but, under administrative tools there is NO Local Security Policy listed there, but this is XP Sp2 Home, I don't know if that is only for professional. How can I get it back, and restore all policies to default?

Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator.

Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it?

I take it that you want to restrict access to this drive to everyone but yourself. Which drive are you referring to, is it locally connected or via a network?

OK....feel like a dumb a$# ... I got hit with virus/malaware. I was able to clean the harddrive usinBullgurd 8.0, but after clean-up I find that my display properties is missing the Walpaper and screen saver tabs.

How can I restore these?

A:Missing Display Properties Tabs

The first thing is to be sure that you're clean. I'd suggest a couple of these free, online scanners to verify that you're clean: (Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)http://housecall.trendmicro.comhttp://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner Scan Only - no removalhttp://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.htmlhttp://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtmlhttp://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asphttp://onlinescan.avast.com/http://ca.com/us/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspxhttp://www.eset.com/onlinescan/ If you're not clean, then a fix is unlikely to help you out - and if you're not clean, I'd suggest posting in the Am I Infected forum for assistance from the experts (here's the link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ )Once that's done, post back and we'll work on fixing the display properties.

Hi fellas,

I am experiencing a big problem. As the title of the topic suggests, tabs in Display Properties are missing. Well, I have searched through Google a lot for this, and none of the advices worked. The advices generally point to a registry hack, but it does not work for me.

Well to describe the problem better, this thing arised after a Spyware Infection wallpaper came to my computer. I fixed everything related to it (at least I think so), but this sticked on me. If I run in safe mode, I can see all tabs properly. Also in normal mode, I can only see the themes tab, (with Windows Classic, XP, current theme, etc. as options) if I change to another theme and say apply, I can see the tabs (not exactly as they should be) until I press OK to close that window.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

A:Tabs Missing from Display Properties

Check this first: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=922370

Have you installed the display drivers for your chip or installed card?

That is sometimes a factor.

The other is a policy setting, but this should not occur on a clean install.

If one exists, it would be found in one of the registry keys below:

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
System]

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\

Hello RFED,

That's how I understand it.

Just to verify, did you also enable password expiration to enforce your min/max password age?

Hi,

My local security policy on my Win 7 Pro x64 machine is only showing a limited set of policies (see below). I need to modify "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" in order to remotely connect to my PC at work. But that policy does not appear in my local security policy. I have tried the following:

1. using "Security Compliance Manager" and "Local GPO" to install the default set of policies.
2. adding "LmCompatibilityLevel" registry key set to "1", see: LmCompatibilityLevel.
3. at least three "sfc /scannow" followed by restarting.

with no luck. Would appreciate your insights. ced

A:Incomplete local security policy

Try the search here:

Group Policy Search

Use the filter and tree views to find out how to apply the required settings either via Local Security Policy or via the registry if the LSP setting is not available on your machine.

As for LMCompatibility Level - I had the same issue and manually created the required registry key. I ran the software mentioned in the following link on another forum.

https://forum.avast.com/index.php?to...3725#msg943725

It provides links to resources about LMCompatibility Level (if it detects that it needs fixing)

Hello to BC
Due to our forum rules we really cannot help you do what you want to do. Your admin probably implemented it as a security feature to prevent bad software from being installed on the machines, I would go ask him if you need to install something.
Per this forum rules:"No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user.

Also if you can disable the searching of hidden files or filders for all users except Administrators.

Ive looked in the Policy but cant see anything there, i thought it could of been an option.
Is there a script anywhere or registry editing?

Plus what settings in there would you disable for most users, can you disable CMD?

You take it up with them. This is a work environment, and they put those policies in place for a reason, and we will not assist in bypassing them. May want to re-read the rules page at techguy.org/rules.html

Norton/Symantec, in its ever-ibimitable wisdom installs its Internet Security and Utilities packages into a locked folder(s). By locked I mean that one CANNOT modify (Rename, Delete, etc) the installed folder(s) and any of its sub-objects. I AM an administrator user, so I SHOULD (expect to) have such ability. Rather, I am issued Access Denied errors when attempting any form of modification of the folder(s) and/or its sub-objects. When attempting to change access security on the folder (modifying Administrator's access rules) I am again denied access...stupid. Can't get there from here!!!!

What does one do to overcome this most annoying impediment? I'm assuming that it would be through acces of the Local Security Policy function.

Probably some negative comment is due Microsoft for its clumsy implementation of security and the difficulty(s) trying to manage it, resulting in utter frustration.

Thanks in advance.

A:Backup/Import Local Security Policy?

Technically local security policy is by definition "local" to that machine. You can try copying the contents of one machines' LGPO contents to another, but this isn't always going to work. I guess the question is, are all of the settings you are modifying in the local GPO policy? If so, they're all just registry settings, so figuring out which registry value each policy changes and to what data you'd like the value set means you can really do this with a .reg import of the settings. Unless you're modifying things like adding certificates or setting service configuration (both of which can be scripted using other tools, btw), anything in the Administrative tools section (and a lot of things in the other sections) are just registry values.

If I change the theme and click Apply, the tabs all appear. But if I close & re-open the Display Properties, I'm back to Themes with no tabs.

There is a similar post here already, but no one has posted any solutions.

Help!

You might see if downloading and meging the gif option in the tutorial may be able to help. It will restore the default associations for .gif files.

Hi Team,
Please let me know what is the standard Setting for below Security Setting ( Audit Policy ), which are followed in most of the Company.

For Eg:- Should i set ' Success & Failure ' for ' Audit account logon events ' & for ' Audit account management' etc...

Something utterly strange and annoying has happened to my external 2TB hard drive. All of a sudden, I can see the drive in 'My Computer' but have no permissions to access it in Explorer.

Additionally, when i try to right-click and take ownership, that's not an option. And when i do open the properties for the drive, there is no Security tab where I can change owners/permissions.

The odd thing about it -- as if that weren't enough -- is that I can still access (view) the files on that drive if I do it through an application (like VLC) that has already a 'recently played' list, etc.

I have also run chkdsk and it reports no errors.

HELP, PLEASE!

I was using my USB stick on my parents PC (XP) & got infected with some worm. It marked all the folders in the root of my stick as hidden & created shortcuts named after those folders.
Ive disinfected the stick (using MSE on Windows 7) but need some help with my folders. I can see them & access them since i set my computer to display hidden files and folders. I am unable to unhide them, the checkbox is grayed out. The Security tab in the folder properties (of these folders) is missing so I cant change the ownership or permissions.
I tried running Take Ownership from the context menu of the folders but it didnt help. Any ideas?

Hi,
I have a problem connecting to a work network and have been asked to ch eck the following settings -

Go to: Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy
Select: Local Policies -> Security Options

there are two settings to change.
"Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" -> Send LM & NTLM responses
"Minimum session security for NTLM SSP" -> uncheck: Require 128-bit encryption

The problem is that I have the "Home premium" addition which does not have the "Local security policy editor" and would like to know how I can either add this to my version of windows7 or how to check/change these settings in the registry.

Thanks in advance,

In display properties there are absolutely no tabs.

The computer has XP with a Nvidia geforce4 mx 440 vid card.

-I have installed the newest driver and an older one, neither fix it.
-The tabs do appear in safe mode
-I have reinstalled SP1a
-I removed all spyware
-I have scanned for viruses
-I have disabled abolutely everything on startup
-I did find one mskb article that referrer to a similar problem after upgrading from 98 to xp but this came with xp and the article didn't have all the tabs missing.

Does anyone know of a way to get the file/folder properties page from a cmd prompt as though you have just gone and right-clicked the file/folder in the gui?

The reason I ask is because I may have a user logged in and need to look at the file/folder properties (specifically the ntfs permissions) and because they are logged in as a user account and have no access to the folder they cannot even see the security tab of the properties box.

So I need a way from the command prompt to open the properties box of a file/folder (as I have done a runas to get an admin prompt inside their user gui session). Looking at security settings in a cmd program may also be of some interest if anyone knows that either...

I have computers that are not on a domain they are just part of a work group. each computer has a Agent and a Admin account. My employees log into the agent account which is a limited account. However they still can use the cd-rom. The problem with this is they put cd's in and listen to music. this slows down their production and causes issues on the floor. Is there a way to change the local policy on said machines to not allow the limited account access to the cd-rom and keep it from reading it or something?

I think you have more of a personnel management problem than a PC problem.

If you don't want folks listening to CD's while they are working, make the

By default, password expiration is disabled in Windows 7, so it never expired by default. However, the tutorials below can help show you how to set these though.

But the User policies will not take effect until I go into gpedit.msc and change any user setting (doesn't matter what it is). I can view the User settings, and they are set correctly, but the problem of not taking effect still exists.

I distribute these policies in a script and run gpupdate /force and reboot the machine. But still,the problem exists.

I have determined that if a system already has User policy settings, the new settings I deploy take effect as expected. But if a system does not have any User policies set, I experience the problem.

Any idea how to overcome this?
