Windows 7: Group Policy Failure

06 Feb 2012   #1

Win7 Professional
Group Policy Failure

Hello, 1st time post. Hope it's in the right forum.

Whenever I get a device ( today a new keyboard ) my Win7 Pro refuses to let the drivers go through and warns with a group policy error.

Are there defaults or what could I change to allow devices to be installed?

Thanks so much.

Welcome to SF.

Is your computer being administered by someone else? Is there more than one login to your pc? Are you part of a network?

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.
