Windows 7: gpedit.msc

25 Jun 2012   #1

Ultimate x64

Hi there!

I was following tips from Restrict or prevent users from running programs in Windows and everything works well apart that gpedit.msc itself getting blocked even that I am logged as an administrator.
When I have chosen just couple of programs to be allowed I cannot start gpedit.msc as well.
I restored system to previous settings and added gpedit.msc to allowed programs but I am getting the same problem.

Tell me what to do, please.

Take care

Hello xXx4x, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Be sure to also add mmc.exe to the allowed list. This is the process that Group Policy uses.

Hope this helps,
