Hi.

Basically, there's a software restriction policy on the PC that means I can't run gpedit.msc, Dxdiag, and many other files (Some of which I need to run.)

I've seen many methods of removing the policies. Only problem is, they all use the group policy editor. In short: The group policy editor has a software restriction policy that blocks the group policy editor. I can't figure out how to remove it.

Any help?

I'm running Windows XP Professional on an HP Compaq 6715b, if it helps.

Hi -
Is this a company or maybe a school computer, and not your own property ?
There are times these restrictions are put on for a reason - The main one is so you cannot alter them -

Why do you need to run these programs ? Usually after the owner programmed them in for a specific reason - -

Thanks -
Edit for spelling -

I'm trying to use GPEdit so I don't have to tell Windows every fifteen minutes "No, I don't want to restart for updates now", not to mention that I also can't run Disk Cleanup due to the software policy restriction, since my hard drive is beginning to fill up with crap.

I'm sure you can see how this would be highly annoying.

Regardless of how beneficial such might be...if you don't have adequate permissions to access such on a given system...someone has made that decision as a matter of exercising control/responsibility for said system.

We cannot assist you in circumventing such decisions/policies.
