I have XP Professional. My friend installed this version on my PC last week and I'm getting my bearings on the differences between this version and another XP version. I notice this one has a Windows Firewall. My problem is that I used to be able to access my employer's company intranet from home. When I go to the site and enter my login info I get the message:


Access Denied (policy_denied)


Your system policy has denied access to the requested URL.

I'm thinking I have to modify a setting in gpedit.msc however I can't be sure. Any thoughts of what security setting that needs to be modified?

You should not have to modify any settings. Have you fooled around with the policy settings before you tried the vpn or tried it straight out without changing anything?

I don't use vpn. I had messed around with the policies about a year ago, but it was for simple stuff like removing the ability to see the Control Panel...

My friend just put this new windows on and I have not modified any setting so far.

I've heard of VPN, but I'd like to say that I'm sure I do not use it or have it. How would I find out if I had it anyway? Also, this message comes up on my home pc. I can access the company intranet at my parent's home, so I know it's some setting on my pc.

Ahh i misread something. So you are getting to your intranet via the web? Does it prompt for logon? Is it then that it is saying you are not authorized?

Yes. Here's what's happening:

1) I am trying to access my employer's inTRAnet site from home (we can do this)
2) The site prompts for login and password (good so far)
3) After logging in I get the message:

Access Denied (policy_denied)


Your system policy has denied access to the requested URL.

Hope this clears it up...

Are you using a proxy on that machine? Some sort of content blocker?

Is the content advisor enabled in your internet explorer settings?

I've heard of a proxy server before, but I don't know what a proxy is. I do not think I am. How do I check to find out? I do use the built in Windows firewall. I also use Mozilla Firefox, however the company intranet is only designed to be viewed in IE, so so much for that idea...

I have no content blockers that I am aware of. My Ad-Aware, Spyguard, etc was deleted when my computer was cleaned.

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Read the pinned post in the HJT forum, here

Then, run a log, and post it here.
