With Windows Defender SpyNet on Vista set to Advanced and installing Java Update 14 b03 a Windows Defender warning appears that the publisher could not be verified for the IE plugin. Suggest digitally signing the DLL to prevent such warnings. Note that by default Defender is set to normal so that majority of users will not see this warning.

See screenshot

Are we able to attach pictures to posts?

atehrani,

Can you tell me the name(s) of the dll(s) which are flagged by windows defender?

Can you also stage the screenshot somewhere so that I can download it?

Or you can email it to me directly:

The DLL is C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jp2iexp.dll. I have sent you the screenshot via e-mail.
