Windows 7: Help with group policy

Help with group policy

i have a laptop with a limited account.
currently it has group policy on it which blocks me from running EXE's.
i have uploaded a pic showing what happens when i open one.

i have noticed that when i run the update file from Adobe to update flash it works straight off the desktop. i want to know if there is a way to digitally sign another exe the same as the adobe flash file.
there was a way to run EXE's by putting them in this folder:
C:\Windows\System32\catroot2\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\New Folder
C:/Program Files/adobe/Photoshop elements 8/Presets/Games

they all worked till they updated the group policy to block them.

is there anyone who can help?

Hi Josh,

I speak under correction, but I don't think we can't really help you with that since we would be subverting your employers attempts at administrating their IT systems. The forum administrators and moderators will correct me if I am wrong.

Your best bet is to contact your IT adminstrator about this.

Talk to your IT staff and asked them to install what you need to do your work for you.
