Interactive services dialog detection won't disappear

Hello,

I've recently bought a new Windows Vista Home Basic. To my surprise I
found out that it does not have a built-in fax software, unlike the
Ultimate version of Vista, and unlike Windows XP.

I installed Symantec WinFax 10.03, which seems to be running well,
however whenever I start up my computer, I get a dialog box titled
"Interactive services dialog detection". It says:
"A program can't display a message on your desktop
This program may need information or permission to complete a task.
....
Program(s) or devices(s) [sic] requesting attention.

Message title: WinFax MOD - ... Modem
Program pah: C:\Program Files\WinFax\WFXMOD32.EXE

This problem happens because of partial incompatibility with Windows
Vista..."

I have two options: "Show me the message" and "Remind me in a few
minutes".

I received the same sort of message for several other problem I've run
into in Vista during the week I had it, such as a problem with the
Printer Spooler. In other cases (such as the printer spooler example),
when I click on "Show me the message", it shows me a dialog box on
which I click on "OK", and then I go back to the Vista main window and
the "Interactive services dialog detection" box disappears.
However, in WinFax, after I click on "Show me the message" it shows me
no message. I tried everything, for example I clicked on Alt+Tab and
Enter to close invisible messages. Nothing works - there is no
message.
When I click on "Return now" it shows me the dialog box as if there is
still a message.
When I click on "Remind me in a few minutes", it does remind me in a
few minutes. Even when I close WFXMOD32.EXE, it still won't go away.

Is there any way I can make the box disappear? For example if I can
completely cancel the "Interactive services dialog detection" feature
of Vista?

Thanks in advance.

I am not having a problem with FAX, I am having a problem with a continuing
message from interactive services that will not disappear. Each time I
upgrade my AVG software, I get the box, and the message as described by
others. The message will not GO AWAY, and continually re-appears, and it is
the same message each time. How do I get this to stop?

I'm having the exact same problem with the AVG software, and it only began
yesterday (Apr 20). Before then, I never got that Interactive Service dialog
box. I click it, but it reappears a few minutes later......over and over and
over again. Someone please help!

I am running Windows Vista Business Edition, and today have noticed the
problem with AVG Free edition triggering the Interactive services dialog
detection box indicating "A program can't display a message on your desktop".
The program may need information or permission to complete a task, but there
is nothing that allows you to give permission to AVG to continue (as you
would expect with other programs that are being modified).
Very frustrating to have this popping up so frequently. I can only hope that
AVG will have a work-around with the next update. I haven't found anything to
do yet except ignore the damn thing.

I did post to AVG site, but as yet have heard no answers to my post there.
Guess we'll just have to wait out AVG and see what happens. It is extremely
annoying to NOT BE ABLE to stop a certain MS message from continually
appearing on your screen tho!!!!

If it's an MS message then contact MS.

I really want to know how to both; prevent the "interactive services" from
appearing at all as well as preventing the prompt from interrupting other
programs by appearing on top. I can't even say how many times it has
interrupted a full screen program at vital moments just to tell me AVG has
finished a scan. Any info at all would be greatly appreciated

That's AVG. Go into AVG options and check how and when it scans. Its your
program so perhaps you could learn how it works.

This is the kind of answer that makes responding to these 'rooms' tedious.
MS 'interactive' is the culprit, not AVG, that appears, and disappears
immediately, the IA comes up, stays up, and then drops to the ribbon on the
bottom, and continually blinks until you bring it back on the screen. Then
it has 0 usable info other than "Some program" has a message for you. It is
probably one of the most inarticualte, and idiotic program innovations. And
MS will not respond to questions about this, either by e-mail, or phone,
cause I tried.

Its not AVG, its interactive services, it appears to be similar to a separate
desktop of sorts when opened, it repeatedly interrupts my full screen
programs. I don't claim to be a computer guru, but I am very sure that it is
not completely AVG's fault

if you do want to try this out please send me a message

or let you know how to find it. do not pay for it.
its just for reference although some might be free.


1.)Free Windows Registry Cleaner 1.1.0 (Freeware)
2.)Free Registry Cleaner for Vista 1.00 (Freeware)
3.)Error Repair Professional 3.55 (Shareware)
4.)GSA Autostart Cleaner 2.23 (Shareware)

if it does work let me know and let everyone on
this forum know as well.

Michael, you didn't have to be so rude to a senior who is trying to
print something. I am a very low tech person.

He had pegged you wrong, why not cut him some slack, he's a senior himself.
