Microsoft Security Essential - is it anti-virus or not?

I installed Win7 on an HP workstation. For this setup, I chose to use MSE and Windows Firewall.

On Win7, the HP Support Assistant reports that an anti-virus program is not detected when MSE is installed and operational. On the web, there is some lively discussion about the valueof the HP Support Assistant because HP apparently indicates that one should install a "real" anti-virus program.

However, the Win7 Security Center also reports that an anti-virus program is not installed, despite MSE being fully operational.

Thus, MSE is not indicating to Win7 that it is an operational anti-virus program, or perhaps it is not an anti-virus program.

I did configure the Security Center to not monitor for an anti-virus program and the feedback from both is still the same.

Is MSE a fully functional anti-virus program? If so, why does it not report its status correctly to the Security Center?

Extracting Windows Icons from Shell32.dll

I would like to be able to use the Windows icons in the Shell32.dll. Is there a way to extract them? Or a place to find them?

Blank White Windows on some programs

My problem is that on some programs, certain windows are blank white. An example: I installed Adobe Acrobat 8, also Adobe Reader 8. On both, the screen where it asks me to accept or decline the user agreement is blank, so I have no way of accepting.

All I can do is click the X (close) button, which then tells me that I have declined the agreement and the program willclose.
Another time this blank white screen shows up is on HP PrecisionScan Pro software. While the right-hand from which shows the preview of my scan works fine, the left-hand frame that is supposed to have the control buttons is blank white.

I have seen others ask similar questions, and there seems to be a connection between this problem and another one I am having: the Help and Support icon in my Start menu won't work.

When I click on it I get a brief hourglass, then nothing. Nothing opens, and no error message.

W7 (64bit) - Office 2010 Crashes

I run a MacBook Pro with Bootcamp using Windows 7 & Office 2010 Everything seems to work okay until I start to edit text boxes I.e. Excel or Powerpoint crashes as soon as I go to start editing. If I jump across to the Mac side and use the MS Office version there (latest 2011) it does not crash doing the same activity.

Incase someone asks here are the downloads from the events viewer - as I'm not a whizz kid on these things I have no idea what it means other than there's a problem:

My notebook makes BSODs how to analyze the Minidumps.

A four year Toshiba R500 old laptop that has been upgraded to Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit has been causing some trouble. It takes for ever to boot, so I don't turn it off anymore. It's basically a file server now and a remote access point to my home network.

For some time there has been a dll-error popping up (MSVCP71.dll error when starting Google Chrome or Opera). I've researched it, applied the various fixes but it did not help.

Tonight, it has started throwing Blue Screens.

I install the updates that Dear Mr. Microsoft offers me. I defrag, cclean and backup and do everything else under the sun to keep my Windows tidy and my nerves calm.

About the BSODs:
I have those minidumps. But frankly I am no expert in their analysis and right now I lack the resources for becoming one.

Are the Blue Screens are caused by software trouble (as indicated by the dll error) or by hardware failure as indicated by the slow start up and general sluggishness (RAM or HD error, failing mainboard or something like that).

Registering 32 bit DLL for context menu on 64 bit Windows

I am new to Windows programming / registry settings and I need help regarding setting a context menu. Allow me to provide details.

- There is a DLL written in C++ which somehow is able to display a "MyApp" menu when I right click any file. I am not sure how it displays the menu (not owned by me).
- The programming language I used to register the content menu handler is VB.NET. I have code that creates a new key:

1) HKCU\Software\Classes\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\MyApp\{CLSID of the C++ DLL}
- Both the C++ DLL and the VB.NET exe are compiled to run on x86. So they are expected to run on the 64 bit OS under WOW mode.

I have 2 questions in this regard:
1) Should the VB.NET code be creating the menu handler under:

1) HKCU\Software\Classes\Wow6432Node\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\
Instead of

1) HKCU\Software\Classes\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

2) Does the CLSID for the 32 bit DLL get saved under:

1) HKCR\Wow6432Node\MyApp\CLSID
on a 64 bit system ?

- Both the registering and the context menu work fine on 32 bit systems. I am only trying to make it work on 64 bit.
- The 64 bit OSes in question are Windows XP and Windows Vista [in future I might need Windows 7 64 bit too].

Links/pointers to existing articles will also be helpful.

Corrupt dll file D3D10Level9.dll

I have just upgraded to IE9 on my Win7 Pro 32-bit PC and certain websites don't load properly or cause IE to crash. From the eventviewer I can see that this is the cause of the problem but I don't know how to rectify it.

a) I can't delete the file in the hope of replacing it with a new one b) I've downloaded and installed DirectX again which didn't fix

Object found in startup folder

I'm concerned about something I found in WinPatrol's Startup folder. There are six programs listed but the one that concerns me is one simply named WebCheck. There is no command or Company info.

listed. Researching WebCheck I found that WebCheck. dll is a file that contains COM interfaces for
Website monitoring.But the one found in startup does not contain the word .dll.

A search of the computer found that I have 8 files for the .dll file. One of the files found was in C:\Windows\System32\ In Properties the File Description was: Web Site Monitor.

My concern is Should it be allowed to remain in the Startup folder?

Windows Explorer crashes

I have a major problem with two Win 7x64 computers (Windows (NOT IE) Explorer crashes) and on both machines a troubleshooter has told me that the likely cause is vengineie64.dll (whichsounds to me like a dll that is associated with the 64-bit version of IE).

I have been driven crazy by this problem for more than two weeks now. So far as I know I am not using IE64, and the Windows Explorer crashes are the very familiar click on something like 'Computer' or 'Games' or left-click on just about anything.

Sometimes I get a message, sometimes not, the screen goes blank while Explorer restarts.

The cure may be something as simple as uninstalling IE64 or replacing a corrupt dll, but now that I may have a handle on where the problem is coming from, I don't want to fumble the ball. Besides, others may have the same problem.

Missing ATL100.DLL

I have Windows 7 Starter with all updates. Recently I learned that I am missing ATL100.DLL & that shellmanager database is corrupt or missing.

How can I see whether a DLL is registered from my batch program?

I have a .bat file in Windows that I am writing. It will copy some DLLs to a directory on the user's machine and register them. I was thinking it might be good to check whether the DLL is already there and registered, before copying over and registering.

exporting a function from a static library.

I am interested in using my static lib to create a dll (implicitly linking). which means I need to (in vs2008) create a dll project that should generate the following:

1. header file (which have exported function declarations. These are simple wrappers to actual functions in the static lib and are using __declspec(dllexport) which are in the dll centric .cpp file)
2. import lib which will be made as a result of creating the dll
3. the actual dll which is created.

Now this is what I have:
I have made a test program that will utilize the above dll(including the import lib/header files) to test it. in this I have included all the three items. now the exe compiles/links without issue.

however in the main.cpp when I call the exported functions they seem to see the exported dlls.but can't seem to execute the static library functions which they wrap.

1. how do I get them to see those functions?
2. is there an easier way to do this such that I still share my static library but now if anyone wants to create a dll they can because I have added "the exported functioncapability" to my static lib? OR do I just need to provide them with a imported library from my dll which has all my static library obj files as well? (I thought I did that when I made my dll but maybe just adding that as a reference to create the dll in vs2008 does not work?

ntdll.dll not found

regsvr32 hangs

I am trying to register a dll on one of our employees computers, it has XP service pack 2, and when I run regsvr32 it just sits there if I go into Task Manager under Processes, you can see it there but it's getting no time.

I even set the priority to high and nothing. I have run regsvr32 on other computers with no problems. how can I get this to run successfully. I am trying to register a crystal reports dll.

craxdrt9.dll it's a pretty common dll, and like I said I have no problems with other computers.
