Similar registry settings work well for other applications like Firefox, Outlook Express
but not for IE! StripMyRights.exe is well in safe applications list, and theres is anomaly in alert chronology by CIS:
1- allow StripMyRights.exe running
2- allow StripMyRights.exe runing iexplore.exe
3- allow iexplore.exe running StripMyRights.exe (<= anomaly here: recursivity?).
The result is that double click on IE does not show anything.
Im am running XP SP3.
You should have mentioned, that we’re talking about IE8.
If you use a tool like Process Explorer, you’ll see, that at startup, iexplore.exe launches itself and creates an iexplore.exe child process. Therefore also StripMyRights will be launched again in the above scenario.
Did the “registry method” work for you before with IE8?
It’s a problem with the process architecture of IE8 and using StripMyRights as debugger. As I remember, it worked well this way with IE7. With IE8, I’m using the “command line method” and launch my IE with StripMyRights.exe “%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe”.
