I run Windows 7 64-bit, and am an administrator. I was using this guide to stop popups with Avira antivirus. I accidentally used the 'Windows 2000/windows xp pro' instructions rather than the proper win7 instructions.

Now, when trying to launch any program I receive an error message saying "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." Followed by another message saying "The item you selected is unavailable. It may have been moved, renamed, or removed. Do you want to remove it from this list?" (When attempting to run from start menu)

Trying to run system restore yields the same 'operation cancelled' message.

have you tried to undo what you did? or are you blocking gpedit also now?

 

edit: follow this tutorial to reset your GP... that'll do it if you can't manually undo what you did.

Is this what you're looking for? Reset the local policy to default.... http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/214461-local-group-policy-reset-default.html Before messing with things like that you should always do a restore point.

I did set a new restore point earlier this evening, but was unable to run it. 

 

The link posted helped though. I used the command prompt method (option three) and everything is okay now. Thanks a lot.
