Explorer launches IE

8 posts in this topic

What is best way to make explorer.exe launching Internet Explorer?

I need it to avoid some software firewall warnings when using _IECreate or running IE directly from AI.

Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Would it not be possible to perhaps handle the warnings from the firewall(s) (probably not but I have to suggest it:P).

Otherwise... I guess there's one way, but I wanna know why you're wanting to do this, really.

Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking.

IE object created via _IECreate runs a svchost.exe -> IE process chain. Well, this is triggered by some firewalls (and generic anti-malware, HIPs etc.) because it "seems" a process injection. You can test with Comodo Firewall as it is free.

So I'm asking which is the stablest way to do something like AI script -> explorer -> IE so that it doesn't seem a malware activity.

@FreeFry: I can't/don't want manipulate firewall warnings if there is no need to do so.

I agree with you. What I'm talking about is a malware-like behaviour of _IECreate function, so a malware-like behaviour of an AI script that each of us could write.

I'm sharing that info and trying to understand if there is a unsuspicious way to open a IE object.

I hope I'm clear now.

I don't think code to do something like that will be published on an open forum like this, sorry.
