Windows 7: EMET and notification area permissions.

EMET and notification area permissions.

I've used far too much time on this but it's nagging me to resolve it. I hope I haven't done any damage with the efforts I've made so far but I do have a very recent restore point set so I guess I'm okay on that.

Here's my problem. I followed Brian Krebs' advice and installed EMET 4.1. That went okay and I'm able to open it from the directory it resides in and also using the shortcut I created in my start menu (it didn't populate my start menu on install). No problem. Except that in the notification area, if I right click on "open EMET" I get the dreaded "Admin privileges are required." I'd like to resolve that just because.

But also in the list of notification icons are several applications I no longer have. Will these drop off eventually or is there a way to edit what's on that list? I know I can control whether they show or hide but I'd like to be sure every vestige of the removed programs is gone and that would include its notification area listing. Which brings up another issue but I'll post it separately.

Thanks as usual for the help.

Hello Gorham,

If you mean that you get an UAC prompt when you open EMET, then that's normal since EMET requires to "Run as administrator" (elevated), and you must give administrator approval first. Are you logged in to an administrator account when you try to open EMET? Did you disable UAC?

You could use the tutorial below to reset your notification area icons to remove the old ones from uninstalled programs.

Hope this helps for now,

Okay, that's set now. And also thanks for steering me to CCCleaner. Now my only naggy issue is the unused items in msconfig and I'm going to save that for another day.

Thanks again.
