Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is bullshit proprietary malware and should be circumvented by anyone to prove to retarded academics it is a scam. Here's how to do it:

  1. Use a respectable operating system that can install QEMU. I suggest Devuan
  2. Along with QEMU, install virt-manager as to not kill yourself in the monstrosity that is cli QEMU.
  3. Once done, open up virt-manager and click 'Edit' and then 'Preferences'
  4. From this menu, enable XML editing
  5. Once enabled, close that menu and proceed to download a copy of Microshaft's Windows 7.
  6. Once you acquire your legal copy of Windows 7, create a virtual machine for it by clicking the Monitor with a play button and a shiny star.
  7. From here, click local install media then click forward
  8. This menu should ask for an ISO file, find the Windows 7 ISO you downloaded with the browse button and then select that
  9. Next, you'll be at a screen that asks for how much cpu and memory should be used, put in whatever you want.
  10. After you'll be asked to make a disk image for the VM, make one around 65GB or greater. If you don't have that much space, then make one with 20 GB of space instead. Less space hurts your ability to not be detected
  11. Name the vm whatever you want and click finish
  12. From here, go through a normal Windows 7 install until you make it to the start screen.
  13. Once here, open REGEDIT by clicking the Super key and R at the same time and typing in 'REGEDIT' (without the quotes dumbfuck).
  14. Navigate to 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/ControlSet001' in the registry (yet again dumbfuck, this isn't a file path, this is the location of something in the registry. Click the folders)
  15. Once this is achieved, right click the registry folder called "Enum" and click Permissions.
  16. Click add and type your user name in the box provided
  17. Click ok, then click 'Advanced'. A menu should pop up, from this menu click owner. Click on your user and then click the checkbox that says "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects". From here, click Apply, then OK, then click OK on the original permissions menu where you added yourself.
  18. You should now be able to edit the registry. Open the Enum folder and locate the 'IDE' folder.
  19. Open every folder in IDE and click on (BUT NOT OPEN) the folder inside all the folders in IDE. Each folder should have something with a nonsensical name like '5&2e0148db&01.0.0' and have a list of editable registries on the right.
  20. Find the registry named "FriendlyName" and name it whatever the hell you want, but make sure it doesn't have QEMU in it once you edit.
  21. Do the edit you just did to all other folders in the folders in IDE.
  22. For further reassurance, you may right click on the 'Enum' folder, click find, and type in QEMU and then change every element of FriendlyName that pops up with QEMU inside it when you do this.
  23. Enable TLS 1.2 by going to Control Panel > Network and Internet >Internet Options and selecting the "advanced" tab. Scroll down in the list and you'll see and entry for TLS 1.2. If not checked, do so and then click "apply" and then "ok". Image Example.
  24. Once you are satisfied, shutdown Windows 7 and click the button next to the highlighted screen icon of the upper right of your virtual machine's window.
  25. Once here, you may see entries like "CPUs", "Memory", and "Mouse". If you see this, you figured your way to where you need to be.
  26. You should select "CPUs" and then click XML (that XML button should be next to the word "Details").
  27. This should bring up an already filled text prompt of code. From here, you will be inserting and deleting lines in this text prompt.
  28. Follow the instructions in this text file.
  29. Once completed, click apply and then click the monitor icon in the top left that should be next to the highlighted icon indicating you are in the editing mode. This should bring you to a screen that says something along the lines of "Guest is not running".
  30. Click the start button at the top to power on your computer and try out the browser, you should be able to use it without problem. If problems still exist, download this file, unzip it, and run the batch script in it as admin, restart, then try. If problems still persist, then do your own research or contact me about the issue to see if its universal.
