I'm trying to reset this computer back to its default security settings due to the fact it got owned by a virus.
I've gotten the trojan off the computer, but it set a bunch of policies on the computer and now I can't run/install quite a few programs. It would be much easier if I could just edit the group policies via gpedit.msc but since its XP Home it doesn't have it built in.
I went through all the places in the registry I thought the policies would have been set but I couldn't find anything.
What I'm trying to do now is reset the computer back to its default security settings by going to Run and typing MMC. When the console pops up, I click File, then Add/Remove Snap-in and click Add, and your supposed to add Security Configuration and Analysis, but I don't have that option to select from the menu. If I could add this in I should be able to just load the setup security.inf and reset the computer back to its default settings.
I've tried quite a few other things today but I am starting to run out of options. Any help would be awesome thanks!
