I'm assuming this is an internal application, since you know you want to embed credentials rather than let a customer choose them when installing. In Windows 7/Windows server 2008 R2 or higher, you can use Managed Service Accounts. These are accounts that, by design, do not have a password that you know. (They act like computer accounts and ...

I've seen this happen in the past as well, and we ran into some trouble causing me to look at this. My Windows 7 (SP1, Enterprise) system does the same. And digging around with Wireshark and Sysinternals's Process Monitor reveals the following. One of my certificate stores has a COMODO-signed certificate for which a cert up the chain (b9b4c7a...) is ...

GptTmpl.inf is where the security settings are stored, so if that file is not present that would explain why the settings were gone. Hard to determine who or what did this unless you have auditing enabled. Restoring the GPO from backup using Group Policy Management Console is preferred over re-creating it. I would check the antivirus product to ensure it ...
