View Full Version : group policy editor and profiles trouble

12-07-2011, 10:33 PM
I was working with the Group Policy editor and profiles because I need to lay out a number of computers for a few users. My problem is that .EXE files wonít execute, and I havenít touched the security settings yet. I have tried to download these files again, and the Downloads are actually cancelled. I can unblock the previously downloaded ones by right clicking on them and choosing Unblock, but I need to shut this off for the users. I donít have an Anti-virus app and Iíve opened the Internet settings all the way. Iíve tried the Downloads in IE and Firefox with the same results. How can I get this to work?

Possibly you changed something in the policies that is affecting things. A system restore might be the only way back to before the changes were made. If UAC is blocking then try right clicking an exe and choose to run as Administrator. Also - do this from your own user account area such as your own Desktop or Documents or Downloads folder.
