When looking at the Summary screen and clicking on the “Number” of Blocked Intrusion Attempts, the usual pop-up window does not appear… at least not in the normal way. It looks like it tries to pop up, but before I can even glimpse it, it disappears.
Same situation when in the Firewall\Common Tasks screen… clicking on View Firewall Events yields only the slightest flicker of a window attempting to open, then it disappears.
While confirming that all other links/buttons function properly, I discovered when I click on the “Number” of Active Applications Running in Memory, it responds just like to other two described above.
Interestingly, when using Alt-Tab to move between open windows, I can see CIS shield icons titled “Active Process List” and “Firewall Events”, but selecting them does nothing.
Logging is not disabled. Size is set to 2mb.
CIS version: 3.13.126709.581
OS: XP Pro sp3 32-bit
Recently updated: .Net Framework 3.5
-I’m unsure if it’s related but using Spybot S&D’s System Internals to check for registry inconsistencies revealed some missing common .dll files for .Net Framework 1.x? (see attached file)
Subsequent to discovering the problems the following were updated:
-.Net Framework 3.5 sp1 update (did not resolve missing common .dll files)
-Video card: BIOS, Drivers, and Software
Any help is greatly welcomed. Thank you.
Restoring the missing Framework files did not help.
Scans with NOD32, SuperAntiSpyware, and Spybot S&D revealed no problems.
Although the CIS shield icon(s) may visible in the Alt-Tab window, they are not on the task bar.
