Keep in mind that SRP is more than a decent layer of security. Don't forget to turn it back on in Local Security. I can give you the bat file code for turning it back on if you need it.

That is correct, my friend. It's hard to beat too, especially if it's set as you have found out to cover all users including Admin's.

Hello Dave, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could also do a system restore at boot if you like since you are unable to in Windows.

System Restore

Hope this helps,

Additional Solution

I know this is an old thread, but perhaps others will come across it as I did and benefit from by discovery.

Thanks Greg S for the registry script. That didn't directly solve my concerns, BUT, a subfolder of that key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer\CodeIdentifiers\ was a folder with the value of '0'. A subfolder of the '0' folder was 'Paths'. Within the Paths folder was a list of identifiers. Each of the identifiers had a path associated with it. Each of these paths listed were restricted from running.

I exported the 'paths' folder, then deleted and rebooted. Now the applications that were showing 'Blocked by Group Policy' are launching and running properly.

Hope this helps anyone coming across this older thread

PCIData, thanks that did help.

Btw, in your and my case it was cryptolocker preventer... that added all those path statements.. and annoyingly blocks 7zip files.

it is sometimes applocker in group policy instead, and sometimes the reg solution above. if it is 7z.exe files, check PCIdatas solution first, or run the cryptoprevent and deimmunize.

(and just for more info and maybe search results, i am on windows 10 btw)
