View Full Version : about Trandumper from mcsebraindumps site
Mjc, thanks for the help earlier it maid things clear to me earlier.
now,i downloaded trandumper from mcsebraindumps.com for those who don't know this is an application that uses a text file of braindumps to make a test with friendly gui.
this is IE-based application & before usage i get a pop-up window with the question:"An Activex control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page.do you want to allow this interaction?" then i must choose yes for the application to proceed...
what does it mean?
is it safe to choose yes???

This message means that the security setting on your internet browser is set to high. For purposes of using this site, the security setting on your internet browser should be set to Internet zone. If you trust the site you will probably have to set security a little lower to be fully functionable.But be careful with any site (user discretion)
if i get my security settings lower it means that a site can get access & store data about my system or files on my system?!

Then don't use the site? you can just go ahead and click no you should still be able to use the site normally there will just be some funtions that may not work right. It's like navagating a site that sells products if you don't allow cookies you may not be able to navigate there site in certain places.

If you are set up with an active firewall and antivirus program, you should be pretty safe. I don't use IE, so I don't have the same security options, but I basically run with no restrictions on sites I can visit. I do run Norton AV and ZoneAlarm firewall. I have never had a virus or other malware infection except for occasional spyware that installs with some program and which I remove with Spybot. If you install Kazaa or something like that, yes you will be vulnerable, but that will be true even at the highest security setting on IE.
The Trandumper is used as follows:
First i open my IE.
then i open a certain directory that contains applications files.
now i choose a file trandumper.html-steel local on my system only.
then i choose a button & a new pop-up window opens with this question about activex... if i choose no i can't continue i just get the pop-up with white background nothing else...
i'm worried about this pop-up to establish a connection to the web & perform malicios stuff on my system.
what can i do to find out whether this Trandumper application is safe use or maybe it's harmless & just uses a java component that shows this activex message allways when a local file is opened or something,i don't really know much about java applications.

I ran it thru spychecker didn't come up with anything I think your just being a little to paranoid.. if your afraid to use it then don't find a different site. But if it is an ineractive site for training purposes you will have to allow the active x
Ahh I just went there come on tried it out The most this place is going to do is give you a tracking cookie use AD-Aware, It's a training school for god sake.It's not like your on a hacker site
I know all about you already :D

i just think it's peculiar that an application that seems to be offline turns to be online for no reason .

A lot of applications have an offline component and an online one. As Yoda said, it you are worried, don't use it, but sometimes you have to use the online resource to get what you want/need. Even logging on here involves a certain risk, even though this is generally a very safe site. The only way to remain completely safe is to disconnect your modem and keep it that way....:) :p
my problem is not with any application that goes online...
my problem i with an application that goes online for no reason.
how can i be sure that it really becomes online(i don't dial to the internet & i can't see file options...)
i used spybot & i don't think there's any problem with the application this is just for general info... thank u all.

my problem i with an application that goes online for no reason.
The way your explaning it, is that the app. is phoneing home...just like XP.. get a firewall!! If the app. phones home there really isn't anything we can tell you it's the software developer that has inisiated this into the program? all we can do is suggest a way to stop it ie firewall.It's not a hacker program per say..a little annoying yes..For some unknown reason the training course requires this???? i have no idea Why??? You would need to talk to them about there specific reason as to why..
Yoda,i did not explain good enough.
Thank u for trying to help but obviously u did not understand the way this Trandumper(a specific tool at mcsebraindumps.com) program works.
Trandumper is not a training course on the web.
on my HD i have a text file which contains questions,answears & explanations...
using this text(.txt) file is not convenient.
using Trandumper is by opening an .htm file(from local disk) i get a
gui(Graphical User Interface) of the local text file which is much more convenient!
my connection to the internet is constant, i don't dial.
now i don't know if the .htm file opened is offline or online,
Thank u for your patience.

If you are online and you open an htm file, it will be online. If you close your internet connection and open your browser, choosing to work OFFLINE, you can then go to File and Open, browse to this HTM file and open it. You will then be able to view whatever the file contains offline.
Thank u all for the help,
i can't disconnect from the network(not even the cable!)
& i don't have File options of IE(to see whether 'work offline' option is selected...) but this is not a big problem to me.

You should be able to disconnect from the network either by turning off your cable modem or by pulling the cable that connects it.
I don't understand what you are saying about not being able to select working offline because I don't use OE, but all browsers have that ability I believe.
i installed it on anouther computer where i could unplug the cable & it was working ok.
