Turn Microsoft Defender Firewall on or off

Applies to: Windows Defender, Windows 10

It’s important to have Microsoft Defender Firewall on, even if you already have another firewall on. It helps protect you from unauthorized access.

To turn Microsoft Defender Firewall on or off:

  1. Select the Start button > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security and then Firewall & network protection. Open Windows Security settings
  2. Select a network profile.
  3. Under Microsoft Defender Firewall, switch the setting to On. If your device is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps. For more info, contact your administrator.
  4. To turn it off, switch the setting to Off. Turning off Windows Defender Firewall could make your device (and network, if you have one) more vulnerable to unauthorized access. If there’s an app you need to use that’s being blocked, you can allow it through the firewall, instead of turning the firewall off.
    Note: If you get errors, or if the setting won’t turn on, you can use the troubleshooter and then try again.

Outlook: “A program is trying to…” – how to fix

outlook-security-popup-it
Outlook: “A program is trying to…” - how to fix

If you use the Microsoft Outlook mail management program and have installed add-ins, third party components or other software that involves using it to send, receive or check e-mails, you may come across some security warnings such as the following :

A program is trying to send e-mail automatically. Allow the operation? If this is not expected, it may be a virus, so choose “No”.

or:

A program is trying to access e-mail addresses stored in Outlook. Allow the operation? If this is not expected, it may be a virus, so choose “No”. 

or:

A program is trying to access Outlook data that may include address book information. Allow the operation? If this is not expected, it may be a virus, so choose “No”.

These alerts, which appear in the form of pop-ups, are generated by the security protections provided with Outlook and are intended to inform the user of the presence of code – potentially unauthorized – that access Outlook data: each popup provides the possibility of deactivating the control for a specific time interval, usually very short (10 minutes, in most cases).

Outlook: “A program is trying to…” - how to fix

These security settings are present in all versions starting with Outlook 2000 and can only be disabled through specific administrative options. This is a function included in the so-called “Object Model Guard” , which controls the Outlook object model and signals any use by external code.

If you want to avoid the periodic appearance of this message, it is necessary to intervene on the Outlook security settings: the type of intervention varies according to the context of use of the program.

Microsoft Exchange Server

If your mail is managed through Microsoft Exchange Server,  you can alleviate the impact of these security alerts for all users through some administrative tools: for Exchange versions prior to 2013 read here, for Exchange 2013 read here. https://22de45614cdd64d025bc85761189dec9.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Alternatively, it is possible to adopt the following  workaround , which must however be applied individually on each workstation:

  • Open the registry ( Run… > regedit ).
  • Go to the  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ < version key . number > \ Outlook \ Security   (creating it if it doesn’t already exist).
  • Create (if they don’t already exist) the following DWORD entries:
    • CheckAdminSettings  , assigning a value of 1.
    • AdminSecurityMode  , assigning a value of 3.
    • PromptSimpleMAPISend  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptSimpleMAPINameResolve  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptSimpleMAPIOpenMessage  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMCustomAction  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMSend  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMAddressBookAccess  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMAddressInformationAccess  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMMeetingTaskRequestResponse  , assigning a value of 2.
  • Go to the  HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Office \ < version key . number > \ Outlook \ Security   (creating it if it doesn’t already exist).
  • Create (if they don’t already exist) the following DWORD entries:
    • CheckAdminSettings  , assigning a value of 1.
    • AdminSecurityMode  , assigning a value of 3.
    • PromptSimpleMAPISend  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptSimpleMAPINameResolve  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptSimpleMAPIOpenMessage  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMCustomAction  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMSend  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMAddressBookAccess  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMAddressInformationAccess  , assigning a value of 2.
    • PromptOOMMeetingTaskRequestResponse  , assigning a value of 2.

The entries shown disable all the most common security pop-ups: for a complete list of registry entries available, and for more information on each of them and their possible values, you can consult this article in the official Microsoft KB .

Personal mailbox

If the mail is handled in standard mode, i.e. via a normal .PST type file inside the user’s computer, the possibilities are the following depending on the Outlook version:

  • Outlook pre-2007: there are no solutions within Outlook: it is possible to use third-party tools, such as the free tool called ” Express ClickYes ” which does nothing but automatically press the “YES” button avoiding the need to do it manually. It is possible to download it at this address.
  • Outlook 2007: It is possible to disable this type of security warning by going to Tools -> Trust Center -> Programmatic Access and change the default setting, setting ” Never report suspicious activity (not recommended) ” (see image below).
  • Outlook 2010 and later: You can use the same method, just change the location of the Trust Center: go to  File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings … -> Macro Settings (for macros and add-ons) or  Login programmatic  (for all other cases).
Outlook Security Settings

If these options are disabled, try running Outlook with administrative privileges in one of the following ways:

  • Hold down SHIFT by right-clicking on the Outlook icon and, from the context menu, choose Run as administrator .
  • Hold down CTRL + SHIFT and left-click on the Outlook icon.
  • From the Start menu, right-click the Outlook icon and then click the Run as administrator option  .

Once you have changed the setting, you can go back to running Outlook with the normal privileges of your account.

Outlook crash on startup (OUTLMIME.DLL): how to fix

Outlook crash on startup (OUTLMIME.DLL): how to fix

In this article, we will investigate a rather common problem that occasionally occurs in some versions of MS Outlook in the presence of IMAP ( Internet Message Access Protocol e-mail accounts – read here for more info). The problem, as you can guess from the title of the post, is the crash of the program during startup (or immediately after startup), announced by the classic popup window that warns the user that “Microsoft Outlook has stopped working”:

The problem

This is a typical anomaly of some pre-365 Outlook versions (up to and including Outlook 2016 ), where IMAP protocol support was, to put it mildly, rather “problematic”. Not surprisingly, the problem tends to occur in all scenarios where the IMAP accounts installed on the system are numerous or “bulky”, characterized by a large number of e-mails.

Obviously, since it is only one of the many possibilities that can cause the crash when starting MS Outlook, the first thing to do is to make sure you have properly identified it. The best way to do this is to take a look at the Windows Event Log ( Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Log ), which should report the following error in the “Applications” panel as a result of each crash:

Name of the application that generated the error: OUTLOOK.EXE, version: 15.0.5137.1000, timestamp: 0x5cb7a3fb

Name of the module that generated the error: OUTLMIME.DLL, version: 15.0.5125.1000, timestamp: 0x5c7e59e6

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Offset errore 0x00065dd7

In the event that the error reports the OUTLMIME.DLL library, it is very likely that the problem is precisely the one described in this article; otherwise, it is possible that it is a different anomaly (such as this one ) that causes the same consequences.

The solution

Once it is ascertained that the problem concerns our scenario, it is possible to proceed to the solution.

The procedure that can be found most frequently online today is described in the following posts:

Basically, the workaround is based on the “double modification” of the root directory ( root folder ) in the IMAP account configuration settings indicted, with the aim of forcing Outlook to “take note” of the (double) change and perform a set of internal activities which, in turn, should lead to the restoration of stability. This is a procedure that, in addition to being extremely complex when dealing with multiple IMAP accounts, does not seem to be decisive in most cases in which this annoying problem arises.

For this reason we propose the following alternative solution, much simpler to put into practice than the previous one and, above all, decisive in 100% of the cases in which we have put it into practice:

  • Go to  Control Panel  >  Mail  >  E-mail Accounts .
  • In the window that opens, take note of the IMAP accounts present ( Email panel  ) and the location of their .ost files ( Data Files panel  ).
  • Go to the folder containing the .ost (you can do it directly from the Data files panel   by clicking on  Open file path ).
  • Create a BACKUP_yyyyMMdd folder inside the folder containing the .ost (or elsewhere, if you prefer).
  • Move all .ost files related to the IMAP accounts found to the new folder.
  • Launch Outlook again.

At startup, Outlook should automatically retrieve all IMAP messages from the configured mail accounts from the server, rebuilding the .ost files we moved earlier. This may take a few minutes or even hours, depending on the connection speed and / or the number of messages to be retrieved. The good news is that messages will be retrieved in order of arrival (newest to oldest) and, above all, in the background, allowing us to work immediately with Outlook without having to wait for the task to finish.

At the end of the operation, when we are sure that all the messages have been recovered, it will be possible to delete the BACKUP_yyyyMMdd folder created previously.

Conclusions

That’s it for now: we hope that this alternative procedure for solving the crash problem when starting MS Outlook will be useful to the many users and system administrators who are struggling with this annoying anomaly. Until next time!

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.

Outlook: “A program is trying to…” - how to fix
Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window.

It is good to say it right away, the writer is certainly not a fond user of Microsoft Outlook, preferring by far more versatile and open solutions (as well as freeware) such as  Mozilla Thunderbird. Despite this, the suffocating presence of solutions based on Exchange and Outlook within numerous public and private companies for which I carry out systemic activities of various types often forces me to have to deal with the numerous problems that afflict this far from it. what a perfect application.

The problem

One of the most frequent anomalies that is reported to me and on which I find myself intervening is the one that occurs when the so-called  Outlook navigation pane – basically the navigation menu on the left of the screen – stops working. When this happens, Outlook presents at startup the classic error pop-up containing the following message:

Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open Outlook window.

Not bad, huh? After all, one of the reasons why this program does not attract my sympathies (to put it mildly) is the absolute inability on the part of the developers to insert error messages that are clear, timely and – above all – consistent with the problem encountered. If in some cases this incomprehensibility is due to an approximate translation, this time it is not so. This is in fact the international version of the message, in all its glory:

Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Unable to open the Outlook window.

The solution

As mentioned, the problem is in most cases due to a malfunction of the  navigation pane . It is therefore not necessary to use SCANPST .EXE   or the usual diagnostic tools and consolidation of e-mail archives, it is simply necessary to carry out the following operations:

  • Close Outlook.
  • Open the Task Manager  / Management Activities of Windows and make sure that there are no other instances of OUTLOOK.EXE   open: if there were any, they must be closed with the appropriate key End.
  • Open a Command Prompt with administrator privileges.
  • Navigate to the Outlook installation folder: C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office15 \  in the case of  Office 2013, \ Office14 \  for Office 2010, \ Office12 \   for Office 2007, and so on.
  • Type the following command:
1outlook.exe /resetnavpane

This will start a new instance of Outlook while restoring the navigation pane . Obviously, any changes made to the navigation pane display layout will be undone – for example, if you are using Exchange, you may need to reset the display of public folders, which are disabled by default.

That’s all for now: happy – so to speak, actually I pity you – Outlook!
