Windows Vista is not valid RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the error that I am getting when I start Vista. The only two programs that I have installed within the last few days are Adobe Reader 9.1 (on 03/16/09) and Ad-Aware 8.0 (on 03/12/09). Both are Vista compliant.

    How do I correct this? This is really annoying and makes no sense. Why doesn't Vista valid the stupid "tamper" thing when a program is installed so that I don't have a problem three days later that I have to guess what's causing it?

    I CANNOT EVEN OPEN CONTROL PANEL TO UNINSTALL ANY PROGRAMS.

    Thanks,

    Ed Brancheau

  • Hello Ed,

     "Why doesn't Vista valid the stupid "tamper" thing when a program is installed so that I don't have a problem three days later that I have to guess what's causing it?"

      To do that, either:
     
    A) Vista would have to run the program (right after it was installed) and on it's own, automaticly try every possible function of the program to see if one of the functions triggers the Tamper event. I'm not a programmer, but given how many programs that are, I can't see how you could program Vista to know how to 'try-out' every possible program ever made. 
    or 
    B) Microsoft would have to test every program ever written. Which, of course, is impossible. 

      Microsoft (and any other Operating System maker) has to depend on the Program Writers to test thier own software and inform the user which Operating System their software is compatible with.

      In addition, Malware can also cause this issue. (a Virus, Worm or Trojan are still just programs and can be just as incompatible, with an OS, as any other program) and most current Viruses are designed to install without the OS knowing.


      From your Diagnostic Report, I can confirm that your issue is a In Memory Mod-Auth tamper, which is caused by a Incompatible program. It is doubtful that Adobe Reader 9.1 or Ad-Aware 8.0 are the cause.  An easy way to confirm that they are not the cause is either set the programs to Not Run at startup (An incompatable program Must be running, to cause this problem) or just uninstall the programs (this ensures that none of their backgroud proccesses are running at start up)

     The fact that you are receiving the error at start-up tells me that the programs that is causing it, is also running at start-up. If, thru the process of elimination, you are still unable to find the program, you may need to start looking at the possibility that some sort of Malware is to blame.

      If that is the case, I encourage you to scan your system with whatever Anti-Virus program(s) you prefer (ensuring they are Vista compatible) as well using the '
