Windows 7: This program is blocked by group policy.

This program is blocked by group policy.

Various applications show this message when opened "This program is blocked by group policy, for more information, contact your system administrator."
It's a school laptop which was once part of a domain, not anymore, i am local admim.
The only solution which works is opening the application in Hex editor and changing the size of the file.
I would like a permanent solution so i don't have to do this for every application which receives the message.

Things i have tried.

(In regedit)
Deleting "Paths" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\safer\codeidentifiers\0\Paths. I do not have the "safer" folder inside Windows.

Running the application as admin.

(In Local Security Policy Security options)
User account blablabla prompt for standard users Securty setting = prompt for creditals.

some other stuff also which i don't remember.

Have you tried right clicking and running the program as Administrator?


What version of Windows7 are you running?

Found the solution, seems that the last time i did this i did it incorrectly, or that there was something else required to be done along with it that i had not done before doing the ehow solution the first time.
