I used to have Google Picasa on my computer, and several months ago I started getting errors between 1-5 times a day (with no prompting from any of my actions, as far as I can tell).
The error always reads: "This program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator."
The title says: "C:\Users\H*****\AppData\Local\Temp\PicasaUpdater_3a22.exe"
This is always the same except the last part (3a22 in this case) changes to different random numbers and letters. I can go into the folder and delete the EXE file, but they will still come back (as new "clones").
I haven't been able to find any information on Google or Picasa forums so far. I have completely uninstalled Picasa, and fixed registry issues with CCleaner, but that has not helped either. I already posted elsewhere on Bleeping Computer and ruled out a virus as the issue, so now I'm posting here.
I have Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1.
Anyone have any ideas?
