HELP!  I got in over my head.  My place of business installed new computers.  I have a username and password to log on to any of them.  However, there is one I use most and I needed to install a program.  I had an administrative user and password to install the program.  However when I installed it, it would not show up under my profile's desktop...only under the administrator desktop.  I tried to find a way to make it so the program was usable when I was signed in.  So I searched some help forums and found one that said to log in with admin privaleges.  Then login to gpedit.msc.  Then make some user changes and specify the program you want to be available to all users.

After I did this I'm now BLOCKED from using any program I try.  Can't use Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, Chrome...nothing.  I can't even log back in using the admin password to change back what I did.

Can someone help!  This is a work computer I did this on and I want to figure it out so I don't get in trouble.  All I wanted was to be able to run a work related program!

Any help we give would just compound, and make us complicit with, the attempt to circumvent an employer's security measures. It is against our rules, found here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forum-rules/ .


I recommend you seek mercy from your IT dept.
