What are you doing or attempting to do when you receive this message?  Or are you trying to say that you are doing nothing at all and the message pops up out of the blue?

...and did you check the properties?  If the URL's in question no longer exist that may be the reason you are getting that message.  URL's do go dead you know.

What tool are you referring to?  You were supposed to read the narrative...which doesn't reflect any "tools"...to see how this could be overcome.

 

Everything else on that webpage appears to be ads for products I suggest for no one.

@ hamluis

I think i see gunner 1's confusion

 

regedt32.exe and in the screen shot  Edit DWORD (32-bit) Value.
