Windows lock screen file - Paranoid Mode

I just set the HIPS function into Paranoid Mode and I’m running into a problem with the Windows lock screen. When I switch into lock screen mode I am unable to set the permissions for it. Therefore I can’t get back in because it going into some wait loop and forcing me to restart my computer. What is the name of the file so I can set it up manually in HIPS Rules.

I don’t know myself what files are involved but you could check the logs to see what applications are being blocked from doing what things.

To check the logs:

[ol]- Open the main CIS GUI.

  • Click Tasks in the upper-right corner.
  • Under General Tasks, click View Logs
  • In the upper-left corner of the new window you will find “Show” and then a drop-down list, click that drop-down and select Defense+ Events
  • If you can not see the relevant events in the menu (for example if it was longer than a day ago) then right-click anywhere in the list and click Entire period
  • Sort by Date and then look around the time you had the issue to see what applications were blocked form doing what things.[/ol]
