Driver not Windows XP signed

Question: Driver not Windows XP signed

I have been trying now to install drivers for my Panasonic Digital Camera, which installs itself as a ZIP drive (it uses a 3.5 100MB ZiP disk instead of memory cards), and Fusion Dazzle which is an analog to digital convereter. Both plug in via USB. They used to work perfectly until I had to reformat and reinstall Windows on my computer.

I now get an error message that it is missing certain files (which ARE on the system) and it is looking for "C:\PCLEUSB.drv". When I point it to the correct driver location I get an error message saying that this driver has not been digitally signed to be compatible for Windows XP and will now exit installation.

I am using the most current drivers from the manufacturer and they say that they are Windows compatible and I am the first to have this problem. So far, they have been unable to assist.

Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Driver not Windows XP signed

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Driver not Windows XP signed

usually the program will ask you if you want to continue, I have never experienced where it just "exited" on it's own. I always continue regardless but it is up to the user.

I recently purchased a new pc that came with win vista 64 bit premium home installed. I am now reloading all my old programs and I keep getting ?windows requires a digitally signed driver" error message. I also can't seem to play my old movie files, all of which played fine when I had Win XP. Apparently Vista does not want me to make my own decisions, so I am wondering how I might go about disabling all this extra secure vista crap. Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.
Regards,
William

Answer:windows requires digitally signed driver

Welcome to the Vista forums

1) You don't want to disable UAC (User Account Control) as it does a lot to protect your computer from various malware. If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

Hi

The last few times I started my computer, the system comes with the warning:

"Windows requires a digitally signed driver
Driver: Broadcom NetDetect Driver
Service: BASFND
Publisher: Broadcom Corporation
Location: C:\Program Files\Bra...\BASFND.sys"

Windows suggests to uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publishers support site to get a digitally signed driver.

The problem is that I have no idea of which program or hardware is using this driver. All the drivers I have installed in my computer are from the computer manufacturer.
I have also been at Broadcoms homepage and there is plenty of things to download there. But I dont want to ruin anything.

Suggestions on what to do?

System: Windows Vista 64
 

Answer:Windows requires a digitally signed driver

Broadcom is your onboard ethernet, I don't see why it would suddenly complain unless there was an update.:confused You can disable driver signing but it only cures the symptom and not the cause.

is it necessary to sign driver in win xp 32 sp2.

when i google i got that it is necessary for win vista , win7 and other upper version.

Answer:windows require a digitally signed driver xp 32 sp2

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

If you have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and you install a driver that has a Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) or Authenticode signature on the computer.
But in Device Manager, when you expand the corresponding device, right-click the driver, and then click Properties and then click the Driver Details button on the Driver tab, you may find that the driver file is displayed as unsigned! This issue occurs because of incorrect logic when the Authenticode flag in the catalog file of the driver is checked.
To fix this issue download and apply this hotfix from KB2619914.

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

Hello,
I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

I don't know much about digital signing of drivers. I've seen in a couple of threads that I might be able to sign the drivers myself, ... Read more

Obviously many more problems than just the mouse driver.

Am trying to install HP Deskjet 630c printer and it keeps telling me this driver is not digitally signed. I just put Windows xp on the computer. What does this mean and can I get help? I am not very computer literate and any help would greatly appreciated. Many thanks Paula.

Answer:driver is not digitally signed

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

I recently got a docking station for my laptop (Dell precision M65 w/WinXP Pro SP3 all updates) and when I plugged it in (after all the plug-n-play stuff detected the new docking station stuff), the mouse plugged into the dock USB port would not work (it worked fine previously when plugged into the laptop USB port). I undocked and plugged the mouse back into the laptop's port but it still didn't work.

I went into the device management applet and and tried to update the driver. There was nothing under "Mice and other pointing devices" except the PS/2 touchpad. Under "Human Interface Devices" there was an entry called "HID-Compliant device" If I deleted that device and then did a "scan for hardware changes" I would get the "found new hardware" popup in the tray and then breifly see "Dell USB Optical Mouse" during which the mouse would work but within 2 or 3 seconds it would switch to "HID-Compliant device" and then inform me that my hardware was ready to use at which point the mouse stopped working.

After much screwing around with the device manager and various other USB mice, I found that I could use the "Update Driver" right-click menu item to force the driver to "HID-Compliant mouse" by bypassing all the "Automatic" stuff. This resuted in a working mouse, but I have to do this every time I turn on the laptop.

I'll try to keep this brief:

> Upgraded GFX cards to 2 x Asus EAH4980 (ATI Radeon HD4890 architecture) from NVidia 8800GTS

> Performed full format on HD and reinstalled Windows Vista X64 Home Premium as well as SP1 and SP2

> Installed chipset drivers etc.

> Installed bundled VGA drivers (8.592)

> Installed miscellaneous software/games

System was running very stable and performing well in Benchmarking tests and games. I then tried to update the VGA drivers to the latest versions, first from ATI's own website - Catalyst 9.8 with VGA driver displayed in Device Manager as 8.640 - and then from Asus' website - displayed as 8.630 in Device Manager.

No matter what drivers I update to I am met with BSOD errors as soon as I try to run any kind of media on my PC. The dump files/dxdiag info etc. is attached to this post.

Upon investigation I note that one driver is not loading and is listed as 'not digitally signed', namely

ATKDispLowFilter.sys

This driver is an AsusTek release. It appears to load ok before I perform these driver updates. I can find no reference to any issues with it either on Asus' forums or elsewhere so this doesn't appear to be a common problem.

I've tried to locate a signed version of the driver to no avail.

Any solution would be very much appreciated.

Hi, I finally have my File System mini-filter driver working great, and tested it a lot on Vista 64-bit using the testsigning boot option. All was fine.

However, when I turn testsigning OFF and try to start the service (the driver), I get the StartService failed with 577 - windows cannot verify the digital signature. Note that the driver in INSTALLED, and the Registry is updated, etc. I just can't start the service (even when running as Admin).

It is signed using a Microsoft cross-certificate, based on the original certificate issued by GlobalSign, as directed in MSDN. You can examine the certificate using the driver's properties, and all looks fine.

I also tried installing the certificate, but that made no difference. This should all be correct, except that it doesn't work!! Any idea what is going on here? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I thought I was all done with this project, but since it doesn't work, I am currently screwed. THANKS!

Hey,

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

However, when installing the x64 version of MagicDisc/MagicISO I get the following error:

Can I get around this?
 

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

Hi I'm wondering if anyone knows if i can find a Microsoft Certified Display adapter/video card driver (are those the same thing?) for my :
ASUS AGP-V7100 Geforce2 MX video card.

The reason i ask is because when i look at my drivers through the DirectX diagnostic tool 's display tab it shows my driver as 'nvdisp.drv' and in the 'notes' sections adds :

" The file nvdisp.drv is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs. You may be able to get a signed driver from the manufacturer of the hardware device"

but when i look through the ASUS home page i can't find my video card. I know my driver is from NVIDIA and i've found the right page to update from them but i'm also wanting to update my chipset driver from VIA and they warn of compatibility problems with NVIDIA so i'm looking for a "signed" "certified" or "standard" adpater/driver?

I installed the driver from the intial driver disc and it says unsigned, I was able to get the latest driver from Intel's website and that too says it can't verify the digital signature.

When I boot into the F8 screen and disable driver enforcement I am able to get online.

I'm not sure if this is related or not, but regardless of how I boot, Windows updater and troubleshooters do not work.

I'd appreciate any help.

OK, I have come across 3 methods to disable driver signing with the bcdedit program on various websites:
bcdedit.exe /set testsigning on/off
bcdedit.exe /set nointegritychecks on/off
bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

What are the differences between them and which one should I use? Oh, how do you re-enable driver signing for the DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS method, if I use it?

Hello, I have Windows 10 (64 bit) and all the latest Windows + Lenovo updates.

It says that "A digitaly signed driver is required". Also, the Samsung Magician software reports, that AHCI Mode is deactivated and SATA Interface is N/A. Does that mean that my system is not running on full performance?

I have x220 with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Device manager shows under Storage Controllers "Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller," but there is a yellow triangle with "!" and a Device Status Code 52 message "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device." I checked in C:\Drivers\WIN\Multicard and found two *.cat files--which, I understand, are required to confirm digital signature. Each of them (ridisk.cat and risdxc.cat) has a signed and valid certificate! So what is going on? Will the card reader work? Is there something wrong with how Windows 7 is treating the Ricoh driver, which I downloaded from the Lenovo site? Why should I be getting this grief?

Answer:Ricoh card reader driver-not digitally signed?

Hello,
 
Perhaps the driver is damaged?
 
Try deleting the Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller from the Device Manager and then restarting the computer in order to let the Device Manager re-detect it and re-install the device drivers.  Does that solve the problem?

Hi,

This is my first post on these forums, so please excuse me if anything is wrong.

Details of the problem: I have a Sony VAIO laptop that runs Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I recently downloaded the same version from digital river that has SP1 included and installed it on my laptop. I installed the drivers that I had downloaded from sony's esupport site which went fine. After I rebooted and tried to install the rest of the drivers, I started getting the Code 52 error: Windows cannot verify the signature of this driver. I've seen that every driver can be installed immediately after the system has been booted the first time (after a clean install). Once rebooted, it starts giving the code 52 error. I can't install my iPhone drivers (through iTunes) or PS3 utilities because of this. I'm wondering what changes during the first reboot. I must also say that these very same drivers were used on the previous build of Win 7 HP that I was using except that it did not have SP1 integrated.

Has anyone had a similar experience? I know that the digital signature check can be disabled using bcdedit.exe but I want Windows 7 to work the way it should: it should stop me from using unsigned drivers while installing signed drivers correctly. Does any one have any clue to what's going on with my Win7 on my laptop?

Answer:Driver Digital Signature error when using signed drivers (Code 52)

Hi ajayav, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Boot into Advanced Boot Options and disable driver signing checking.

The Advanced Boot Options screen lets you start Windows in advanced troubleshooting modes. You can access the menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key before Windows starts.

Disabling driver signature enforcement has helped a lot of users in fixing the issue.

You may also delete the USB "Upper Filter" & "Lower Filter" Entry and check if that helps.

Only been here an hour and already on to my second problem, lol.

So my only other problem is one little hardware adapter that has 64bit drivers... but they're not signed.

Is a "Syba" Serial to USB Adapter (SY-USB-S)...

basically I need to use it so that my battey backup can talk with Windows and give reports on power spikes etc... as well as control the shutdown of windows when I'm not around if there's a power outage.

Now, it's not a huge deal as the battery backup will still work of course, but the extra features won't work until Windows can communicate with it. Unfortunatly the backup only as a serial connection (and my motherboad doesn't) so I'm forced to use the "Serial (RS232) to USB" adapter.

So I'm wondering a few things.

1) can I force Vista x64 to use the unsigned driver from the company?

2) can I trick Vista x64 into thinking the driver is signed? (or someone mod the drive to that it is signed by me?)

3) Anyone know of a signed driver from another company that will work with this item? I assume a few companies use the same chip inside the device. All it does is make a bridge from USB to serial so it's a pretty simply device as well.

4) Anyone know of another Serial to USB adapter that has singed drivers that I could purchase to replace the current one?

Thanks again for any advice or help,
TK.

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

I'm wondering if any of you know how Windows determines if an activeX is signed by a trust worthy certificate or not. This is an annoying work related question I haven't been able to figure out. We have a website that installs two different CAB files onto client machines, on the client machine we add our site to trusted site zone and enable download Signed ActiveX, this has worked on 99.99% of clients until this week. One client for whatever reason is blocking this file. To make sure the website developers hadn't changed anything I retested and Windows XP and 7 installs them fine as if they are signed internally and on the external site. I'm wondering if there is some Windows XP setting that would block windows from knowing if a CAB is signed/trusted that anyone has run into? Everything on the internet I have found basically says temporarily allow your security to install an unsigned activex control ... it is signed so I don't want this to be the perm solution. -Confused.

So I've had Windows 7 x64 for a while; all fine and dandy. I decided to give the new Win 8 Developer Preview a go (x64)- I installed it to a separate partition on the same HD as Win7- all went smooth as expected. I've spent the past day or 2 playing around with Win8- but decide I want to boot back into 7. So Win8's installed the lovely new Graphic Bootloader and has both OS's listed (again as expected). I select Win7 and it reboots and attempts to load from the Win7 partition (can't fault it) until it instantly loads the whole recovery / repair failsafe of Win7. That's unable to detect any issues with boot, however upon exiting that I'm thrown back to the graphic bootloader of Win8, and the circle continues. So I realised that I still have recoverymode enabled on my Win7 entry in the BCD; I go ahead and disable it to be greeted with a message explaining that winload.exe is no digitally signed (when trying to boot Win7). If I try to access advanced options to temporarily disable driver signing I'm taken to the new bootloader which gives me no such options for Win7.

So I'm unable to boot back into 7. I can still get on the Dev Preview of 8 (in fact that's where I am right now), but I'm a little confused; why is Win7 now spitting out this error on boot? Surely the new Win8 bootloader isn't too dissimilar to manage booting Win7 correctly?

Hi, everyone...

I'm trying to find a registry hack or something to address the change Microsoft made going from Windows 8.x to Windows 10.

Here is a quick run-down of what Microsoft changed:

My wife and I have 4 children. One of our PCs is used by all of the children. There are 5 Microsoft accounts set up on that PC, one for each of the children plus one that I have set up as the Admin account.

Windows 8.x indicated on the Sign-in Screen which users were already logged/signed in. So, if the Sign-in Screen was displayed, you could see right there if anyone was signed into their account. For example, if 2 of the 5 accounts on our PC were already signed in, then right there on the Sign-in Screen below the picture and name of those 2 users that are already signed in, it says "Signed in" for each of those 2 users. You know right there at the Sign-in Screen if anyone is already signed in that might need to sign out before a restart or shutdown.

Windows 10 removed this information/indication. If you are already signed into an account, then you can look and see which users (if any) are signed in and there is no guesswork needed.

Hi, everyone...

I'm trying to find a registry hack or something to address the change Microsoft made going from Windows 8.x to Windows 10.

Here is a quick run-down of what Microsoft changed:

My wife and I have 4 children. One of our PCs is used by all of the children. There are 5 Microsoft accounts set up on that PC, one for each of the children plus one that I have set up as the Admin account.

Windows 8.x indicated on the Sign-in Screen which users were already logged/signed in. So, if the Sign-in Screen was displayed, you could see right there if anyone was signed into their account. For example, if 2 of the 5 accounts on our PC were already signed in, then right there on the Sign-in Screen below the picture and name of those 2 users that are already signed in, it says "Signed in" for each of those 2 users. You know right there at the Sign-in Screen if anyone is already signed in that might need to sign out before a restart or shutdown.

Windows 10 removed this information/indication. If you are already signed into an account, then you can look and see which users (if any) are signed in and there is no guesswork needed. However, if you are at the Sign-in Screen and want to restart or shutdown the PC while one or more users are signed in, then you are told users are signed in but have no idea which users are signed in. The only way to know which users are signed in is to sign into one of the accounts and find out.

Answer:I want Windows 10 Sign-in Screen to show which users are signed in

Windows 10 changes a lot. To see currently logged on users, you can click on the Start button, click your user icon on the top left side of the Start Menu. It will display all signed in users in the list.

Hey All. I just wanted to let everyone know that I got my party pack from MS but I wont be able to have people over for the release date. I'm also a Technet subscriber so I really don't even need this copy of Windows 7. Anyone interested in buying it??
Also, any thoughts on the marketing of MS for the House Party for Windows 7 debut?

Answer:Windows 7 Ultimate - Steve Ballmer Signed Limited Editi

the disc has written on it "promotional copy not for resale."

i'm not trying to get into a discussion about the first sale doctrine, i'm just sayin... you got it from houseparty (i got it too and am hosting a party), you say you don't need it... get with the moderators of sevenforums and see about gifting it to someone... have a contest for sevenforums members--something! or just give it to someone who's interested in having a signature edition of windows 7...

but selling it... come on--just my two cents about it.

We have a strange issue going on with a couple of freshly imaged Windows 7 workstations over here.

At first we were unable to remote in to them because of a message that the remote computer does not support NLA. Setting the option to Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure) works, but then RDP goes directly
to the remote machine and authentications happens there, which would be the case with a XP (or other non-NLA-capable) machine.
I tried troubleshooting the issue by opening the Certificates snap-in in mmc and deleting the Remote Desktop self-signed certificate but I seem to be unable to reissue/recreate it again...
I have read that i need to restart the Remote Desktop Configuration service in order for the certificate to recreate itself, but whenever I try to do this, Event Viewer logs the following error:
Log Name: System
Source: TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager 
Event ID: 1057
The Terminal Server has failed to create a new self signed certificate to be used for Terminal Server authentication on SSL connections. The relevant status code was An internal error occurred.
.

Any help or ideas on that would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:How can I reissue the Remote Desktop self-signed certificate for a standard Windows 7 client machine?

Hi,

Please check if this post can help:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverTS/thread/8df42746-465f-4902-95a6-121ef1f0fd68

Meanwhile, you can try the following:
Check the MachineKeys directory.
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\XXX

Copy the keys to a different directory by taking a backup and go into the file system and also delete the files in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\.
After deletion log off and log in to see how it works.

If this cannot help,
I recommend to post in Server Forum to get more insights.

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

Thanks

I use a Lumia 830 on release ring and most days it works fine. But once a week I usually have to restart it because Cortana, Xbox app, Groove and basically anything that uses my account will sign out and can't sign back in. No other device I have does this so I don't think it's the account. Anyone know the problem or a fix?

Because if you can't I sure as hell have found the exception.

It's that same annoying people app that I am having issues with on my phone, but on my laptop.

ASUS Book Flip TP200 running the most recent Windows ten build.

I'll just post the screenshot of what has happened.


How can I fix this? I don't know how it got signed in twice.

Answer:Can you be signed into an app twice?

Hello @Johninadelaide6,

Yes, you sure can sign in to an app with more than one Microsoft account (MSA).

You should be able to click/tap on the MSA you don't want, and click/tap on the "Delete account" option to remove it.

I'm kinda confused and frankly a bit sick to my stomach.

i have been hacked in the past so i'm kinda sceptic about all kinds of stuff right now.
i scanned and cleaned both my computer and my laptop with MBAM and changed my passwords
all was fine untill just an half an hour ago my MSN gave me the popup saying i was signed out because the other messenger i was signed in at did not allow for multiple locations.
as far as i know i am spyware, adware, malware and virus free but i'm getting kinda paranoid here...
i signed back in and it hasn't happened again yet.

am i being hacked or what? i'm confused and paranoid at this stage.

both my PC and Laptop have Windows 7 and as far as i know 7 doesnt have a windows messenger so that is out of the question.

if any more info is needed, ask please. i will be checking back on this post from time to time.

Answer:MSN and getting signed out.

If you're not having further issues, sounds like it might just have been a glitch when logging in and out.However, to put your mind at ease, you can always get a second opinion by performing an Online Virus Scan:Eset Online Anti-virus ScannerF-Secure Online ScannerWindows Live OneCare safety scanBitDefender Online Scan-- F-Secure requires free Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to be installed before scanning for malware.-- If given the option, choose "Quarantine" or "Cure" instead of Delete.

Question: keep me signed in

Once you have ticked the box to keep you signed in is there a way to untick it?

Answer:keep me signed in

If I recall rightly, when you sign in, you also have the option to tick or un-tick the box.
You will need to log/sign out first, then log/sign back in at a later time, to alter the set-up.

Question: remain signed in

Help please, I have suddenly lost the facility to remain signed in on ebay. I suspect the problem is not directly to do with ebay rather than Windows.
In ebay preferences there is definitely a tick in the "remain signed in box"
In IE 7 Tools- Privacy- Advanced I have selected "override auto cookie handling" and selected "always allow cookies"
But definitely I leave ebay even for a couple of minutes I have to go through the whole sign in procedure again. It used to work fine, cant think of anything thats changed.

My PC, which is not shared and only used at home, has suddenly stopped retaining all my log-in details, even though I have ticked the web site boxes such as: "keep me signed in on this computer", and have ticked the Firefox "remember this user name and password" box.Anyone know why this should suddenly happen? I haven't deleted any cookies.PC / OS details are: MESH Athlon 64 running Windows XP SP2.

Answer:PC Won't stay 'signed in'

If you have installed spyware programmes these can sometimes delete cookies or stop websites from storing cookies on your system.If using IE check in: Tools/Options/ then click the privacy tab, then the sites box. You can allow or block cookies for particular sites here.
