Windows 7: Installation Prevented By Policy

The Keyboard

The keyboard was purchased at Radio Shack and is identified as ' Gigaware' USB multimedia Keyboard. Probably an older keyboard as it only has drivers up to XP Pro and Vista. But Win7 searches, finds and trys to install the proper drivers and ends up with the 'group policy prevents installation of this device' notice.

Do the media buttons work without the software then?

Also please try to find something here and see if you can find a keyboard looking the same as the one you have.

Legaia,

Thanks but I searched Google til my eyes were hurting. Nothing available and if you find something with that name, the site wants you to download that lousy ' Driver Manager ' software that sets itslf up on your computer.

Thanks

Any chance you could give us a picture of it. Might be someone with the same keyboard or someone that reconise the keyboard.

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
