Software Restriction Policies is wrongly applied to Administrator
I have Windows 7 64-bit and have configured Software Restriction Policies so that "Disallowed" is the default security level. I also have Path Rules defined so that software in C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86), and C:\Windows can execute. I also want it to apply to only my limited user account, so it is configured for "All users except local administrators".
But it is still affecting my admin account. When I'm logged in as my admin user and I try to run any executable file in the C:\Users\admin\Downloads directory, I get a popup saying "This program is blocked by group policy."
Any idea why the Software Restrictions Policies are affecting my admin account even though it is set to "All users except local administrators"?

Hello Delerious, and welcome to Seven Forums.
Did you do this through Group Policy?
If so, then double check using the tutorial below to see if this how you setup the separate "All users except local administrators" group policy snap-in to set these policies in.
